[Resolved] GC8REDJ - Quality-Cacher

Please make a checker for my unpublished cache GC8REDJ - Quality-Cacher (Challenge Cache).

The task: Find in 10 countries caches with an amount of minimum 1000 favorite points.
If possible it would be awesome to see a blue ribbon when the challenge is fulfilled by a geocacher.

Thank you!

Do you mean in 10 countries the cacher must have found A cache with minimum 1000 points, or a SUM of caches worth 1000 points.

If it is the former (10 caches in different coutries with 1000 FP EACH) then here is the checker.
However, you dont quite qualify, you only have 9 countries. I surprised myself by having 4 countries!

If you want the SUM of FP's in 10 countries.... you might need a new checker

Sorry, we mean/want the SUM of 1000 FP's with a minimum of 50 FP´s for a single cache, in each of the 10 countries :)

OK. I have removed the previous checker.... here is your new one based on the SUM, I could even use an existing script.


Can you test and get back to us

there seems to be a problem with real countries and countries which are accepted by geocaching.com as a country...

Our challenge is about travelling in real countries - so if possible, could you please exclude these regions in the checker:

"Aland Islands",
"Faroe Islands",
"Isle of Man",
"Svalbard and Jan Mayen Islands"

I can filter by country, but this script does not allow me to exclude countries other than not including them in the filter.

So, here is the full list, I can remove the ones you mentioned, and I can try to guess others that would be in the same category, like "Falkland Islands:.....

@GreyHams: you may disregard the last request for exclusion.
Re: GC8REDJ - Quality-Cacher
June 26, 2020 09:26PM
We are looking for a solution and think the best way is to exclude no area - even if they are no countries as we no them...
So could you please add these countries to the list again..
„Aland Islands"
„Faroe Islands“
"Isle of Man“
"Svalbard and Jan Mayen Islands"

We have a few more challenges submitted - there is the same problem.
I guess we will ask you to undo the yesterday’s work too - SORRY for that!!
