[Resolved] Multiple checkers - calendar days
October 18, 2019 01:40PM
Putting out a series based on calendar days, looking for the following checkers please and thank-you. Would be ideal if the output gave feedback to cachers to assist in identifying exactly what they are missing, along the lines of this checker: https://project-gc.com/Challenges/GC81A1Q

GC8F0GY - All difficulties and all terrain ratings on all 7 days of the week.
Managed to clone this one myself, not sure if it can be improved though to tell cachers which difficulty or terrain ratings they are missing (I recently qualified for this challenge and trying to identify which ratings I was missing was time consuming): https://project-gc.com/Challenges/GC8F0GY/45790

GC8F0HA - All of the 7 listed cache types on all days of the week
Trad, Multi, Unknown, Letterbox, Whereigo, Earthcache, & Virtual
Pending check of why I don't qualify when I should: http://project-gc.com/Challenges/GC8F0JD/

GC8F0JD - Attended an event on all 7 days of the week Only need 1 event on each day. Event, CITO Mega and Giga can all count.
Pending: Checker currently seems to require all event types. When correct for my profile it should say only Wednesday and Thursday are missng. https://project-gc.com/Challenges/GC8F0JD/

GC8F0JH - Found all 7 cache sizes on all 7 days of the week
Completed: https://project-gc.com/Challenges/GC8F0JH/

GC8F0JJ - minimum 77 finds (physical cache types only) on all 7 days of the week
Pending: Clarification given on requirements

GC8F0JX - 1 find on all 7 calendar days in all 12 calendar months
Completed: https://project-gc.com/Challenges/GC8F0JX/45796

GC8F0KW - Found caches with 777 favorite points (combined total) on all 7 days of the week
Pending: Clarification given, will check with reviewer via email.

Can you split "GC8F0GY - All difficulties and all terrain ratings on all 7 days of the week." into two challenges becuse then I can use an existing script

Nooo! I love this challenge, I have just completed it by a different CO in a different state and enjoyed it so much it's what inspired me to put out this series. If I have to use the existing checker that I cloned im ok with that, I just wasnt sure whether it could be tweaked to tell you whats missing. If it's a truckload of work to do so then ill use it as is.

This challenge requires a new script but I think that if is not acceptable by the reviewer and seen as time limited caching.
My local reviewer declined this and also the size , type, terrain en difficulty challenge.

I suggest you contact your reviewer if would publish these challenges.

Events - I think this one is looking for all event types on all days of the week (it says I qualify on zero days). Only needs 1 event on each day. If its easier, i'm happy to strip out all event types other than a standard event and base it on these only.

Sizes - this works great, thanks (although as with the 7 types it would be great if it could tell you the name of the day instead of a number)

77 Finds - this isnt time limited, I just haven't explained myself very well. What i'm basing it off is the finds by weekday chart on the profile stats page i.e. total finds on Mondays, Tuesdays etc. Cumulative over time.

All 7 days in all 12 months - this also works great, thanks again (same feedback about days instead of numbers applies)

This one has me a little confused. I'm assuming it's ranking the days on how overqualified I am? Can the numbers be changed to day names, I have no idea whether it's running mon-sun or sun-sat (elsewhere I have to deal with scripts that can be one or the other). Im assuming day 5 is Friday though, and I have a whereigo on that day (it's my most recent find on 20 September).

BFMC found only 6 groups of 7 or more different type for the same Weekday found, but needs to find 7 such groups.
Here is what is found so far:
3
6
2
7
1
4
To continue working on this challenge, try adding additional type to the following 1 Weekday found for which BFMC already has 6 type

Weekday found type
5 Virtual Cache
Unknown Cache
Multi-cache
Letterbox Hybrid
Earthcache
Traditional Cache

Thanks vogelbird - I was losing track a bit so have edited updates into the OP.

The 77 finds and 777 FP's are cumulative over time, so I don't believe these fall into time limited exception. Our reviewer is quite particular, but also very good with their feedback so I have sent them an email on all 7 just to be sure.

Wow, they are great! Thanks. The 6 I can access are all spot on. I have been in contact with my reviewer, they are currently returning from overseas and will get back to me in the next day or so regarding ability to publish.

Any chance you can enable the 7th one so I can email them the checker?

Thanks - that one works as intended. I have emailed them all the checkers. Now to wait smiling smiley

Ok, so here's the fun news.....

After a bit of back and forth discussion between myself and my reviewer (and them with GS) it turns out the only one that would get published is the only one that was queried here. Go figure. My reviewer (who has been great) has given me some support around the appeals process should I decide to go that route. At this stage I most likely will, based on a few data points i've thrown together.

Either way, all checkers are as required, just a case of whether I get to use them or not!
