[Awaiting feedback] Possible glitch in a checker
May 30, 2019 11:31PM
I had a geocacher use the checker for GC7N3CX. It is supposed to give credit for "electoral votes" for each state the geocacher has found caches in. He claims he has never cached in the state of Michigan, but was given credit for 16 electoral votes. could you please double check the accuracy of the checker? Here is a copy of his email:

Hi. crescent moon here. I am looking at your I want to be President Challenge GC7N3CX. When I use the Project-GC checker, it is giving me more credit than I have earned. Example: Florida 29 votes, Georgia 16, Michigan 16 but I have never cached in Michigan. North Carolina 15, Virginia 13, Wyoming 3. This is really confusing to me. I have a long way to go on this cache but I really like the idea behind it.

crescent moon has found GCC6B "Fly... MARS ROVER Traveling Cache", which is currently listed as being in Michigan. It looks like the script doesn't have any allowance for excluding traveling caches, so you would need to contact TravelingGeek (the script writer) if you want that added.

TravelingGeek,
I'm not sure how to request a specific script developer, but if this comes to your attention could you fix it to exclude traveling caches? If I don't get an answer in a couple of says I'll try to find a better way to contact you.
Thanks,
Porkwatch

Is this resolved with the scriptwriter?

Not really.
If anyone has fixed the checker I don't know how to find it to reinstall it on my challenge page.
