Re: challenge checker request for GC8QXTZ

[Resolved] challenge checker request for GC8QXTZ
May 17, 2020 08:38AM
Hi folks,
I'd like to create a new Challenge with the name "Hard Rock Cafe Challenge".
The challenge is: Find at least one cache of any type in a city where a hard rock cafe exists.
For smaller islands (Aruba, Bahamas, Cayman Islands, Jamaika, Sint Maarten, Malediven, Fiji, Guam und Nördliche Marianen), a cache is sufficient for the entire island.
In the listing the places are listed where a Hard Rock Cafe exists.
Thank you very for your assistance.

It is a nice idea but we can not read your unpublished listing so please give us the list of places that you in your listing.

Do not forget that the guidelines specify
Quote
Challenge cache criteria may be based upon these geographic areas: countries, states/provinces, counties (or their local equivalent).

It is certainly a lot of work, if I can help in any way, just report it.
If it is too complicated, I can also change the challenge, e.g. within 10 km radius from the city with an HRC.

You certainly still have to do a lot of work because your mentioned cities are not not recognized as counties or regions

and your alternative is not allowed.

Please make the list as such that they are recognized by the system
If you are a paying member of PGC you can use
For regions https://project-gc.com/Tools/MapRegions or for counties https://project-gc.com/Tools/MapCounties

If you are not you can use

Re: challenge checker request for GC8QXTZ
May 17, 2020 03:04PM
That sounds exciting.
To my understanding, for example, instead of Tampa, I write on the list Hillsborough County (FL) or instead Sydney I write
5 or more counties, of which the city of sydney consists.
How should the list look best ? Like this example for Andorra:
Andorra la Vella, Encamp, La Massana, Sant Julià de Lòria, Canillo, Escaldes-Engordany, Ordino
Or is it easier for you to get an csv-File ?

It's possible to get an answer in the next days ?
My subscription will expire at 2020-05-27 and there is waiting a lot of work.
Thank you very much.

I need a answer of my post from May 17.
What should a list look like?
Or can i get an example of a code that i can then prepare for the query?
Re: challenge checker request for GC8QXTZ
June 08, 2020 05:22PM
Here is the example for Africa
Egypt:
Hurghada · Red Sea Governorate (region)
Kairo - Cairo Governorate (region)
Nabq · South Sinai Governorate (region)
Sharm el Sheikh · South Sinai Governorate (region)

This means you can only ask for a cache in the above regions but not in the towns because there is no county equivalent available for those places. So for the South Sinai a cache in the middle of the desert would count for Nabq and Sharm el Sheikh

Nigeria:
Lagos - Eti-Osa (county)
In the county only one cache available

South Africa:
Johannesburg · City of Johannesburg (county)
Cape Town · City of Cape Town (county)

Pretoria ·
Sun City - City of Tshwane (county)

Tunisia:
Port El-Kantaoui - Hammam Sousse (county)

Re: challenge checker request for GC8QXTZ

I will have to place this request as a new script required because a scriptwriter has to make this checker as a special script.
I am running out of config space when I am using an existing generic script

Ok, good luck.
In which language is such a script written?
Re: challenge checker request for GC8QXTZ
June 12, 2020 07:02AM
Here's a checker for you: https://project-gc.com/Challenges/GC8QXTZ/52046

Please have a look and tell me what you think.
Re: challenge checker request for GC8QXTZ
June 12, 2020 09:32AM
@sumbloke, I think the region or county has to been shown behind the town name to avoid problems with the reviewers like we have with the timezone checkers
Re: challenge checker request for GC8QXTZ
June 12, 2020 11:48AM
The checker works perfect.

>> DriveYourDreams fulfills challenge ? (GC8QXTZ) according to https://project-gc.com/Challenges/GC8QXTZ/52046

Thank you very much.
Re: challenge checker request for GC8QXTZ
June 15, 2020 11:44PM
I've adjusted the output so I think it's a bit clearer that we're using the region/county data. Also to make it a bit prettier.
Re: challenge checker request for GC8QXTZ
June 16, 2020 06:27PM
Yes, that looks even better now, thank you for your effort.
Re: challenge checker request for GC8QXTZ
June 23, 2020 10:52PM
I've just updated the script to include a few more cafes, as advised in https://project-gc.com/forum/read?8,40817

I hope it's acceptable to you for your challenge to be expanded as well.
Re: challenge checker request for GC8QXTZ
July 04, 2020 07:10AM
Hi sumbloke,
the checker is unfortunately not quiteworking properly.
The condition should be at least 1 cache in at least different 10 locations.
The checker already shows green in 3 cities.

I hope you can correct that, thank you very much.

Re: challenge checker request for GC8QXTZ
July 04, 2020 08:29AM
Sorry, your original post didn't say 10. I've updated it now.
Re: challenge checker request for GC8QXTZ
July 04, 2020 09:36AM
There are some further issues with the regions it seems. Probably incomplete list:

* Iceland should check for the region "Capital Region" instead of the icelandic name (line 172)
* GC does not have regions for Cambodia, so you should probably just check for the country (line 32)
* The Guragon District in India is in Haryana, not Delhi (line 51). However there is also another one in Delhi (region, no counties available).
* Nepal, Kathmandu is missing (but Nepal does not have regions, so should only check for Nepal as a whole)

Re: challenge checker request for GC8QXTZ
July 05, 2020 10:59PM
I've made those updates except one. The Gurgaon issue is because Project-GC is listing that county as part of Delhi, even if it technically isn't. I will let magma1447 know that there's an issue with the counties for India and once he's made the correction on the backend, I'll look at updating it in my script.
Re: challenge checker request for GC8QXTZ
July 07, 2020 03:02PM
Hi sumbloke,
many thanks you for your work.
Could you please look again here:
This cache are not counted:
in Venice: GC7BA4
in Valetta (Malta): GC1NZ4G
in Bucharest (Romania): GC2YN14
It would be nice if you could still do it.
Thanks

Re: challenge checker request for GC8QXTZ

The regions/counties were wrong for those three. I've corrected them now.

Perfect thank you.
Until next time ;-)
