Re: Event / Foreign caches / 365 visit date

[Awaiting feedback] Event / Foreign caches / 365 visit date
May 31, 2020 10:14PM
Hello!

I would like to have checkers for these challenge ideas:


GC8T288 400 event caches
Only "Event Cache", no other event types


GC8T28Q find 4000 caches excluding the country you have found most caches in
The script below is ok. But there is no sum shown of how many caches one have.
https://project-gc.com/Challenges/GC7QZYV/35355
An output with the total amount of qualifying caches would be nice. Then it would be possible to see how many one is missing if that is the case.


The last is I uncertain if allowed?
GC8T29Q 365 visit dates in 1 Swedish county
Like this one but 365 visit days instead
https://project-gc.com/Challenges/GC5019G/13263
If the output could be in form of an calender matrix it would be more visual appealing. Like the one in the tool "Needed found dates".

Thanks, this one works OK.

It works, but there is still no total sum of the qualifying caches found in the output. To see the amount of caches included by the script is specially important for those that do not qualify I think. Otherwise they have no idea of how many more caches they need.
If an other script can do this it's of course fine to used that one instead.

Well, for those that fulfil the output is very minimal now. There is no sum of the amount of visit dates shown at all. I think that seeing the number of visit dates is interesting for the cachers using the checker.
For those that not fulfil the output is the same long list of dates. That is unimportant for all cachers I think.
An calender grid showing the visit dates for both "fulfilled" and "not fulfilled" would be much better.
If no such script exist removing the dates from "not fulfilled" and adding the amount of visit dates on "fulfilled" is OK with me.

Here is an alternative https://project-gc.com/Challenges/GC8T28Q/51818

GC8T29Q 365 visit dates in 1 Swedish county
Here I have a question
Are you looking at 365 different calendar dates (the year is not important) or are you looking at different visit dates

Thank you, this one will do fine

Hmm, I actually have no idea myself which is the one I want to have. 365 calender dates would be great, But I wonder if it's allowed to limit the founds within one county.
I better ask the Swedish reviewers before continuing with this one. I will be back within some days with an answer.

My enquiry has been lifted to an international level, so the answer will take some more time.
Re: Event / Foreign caches / 365 visit date
June 22, 2020 09:57PM
Now the enquiry has been settled, and it's OK to go on both visit dates and calender dates

But since reaching an filled calender in one single county will be very difficult I have decided to have 4 levels for each.

These are for Calender dates
365 kalenderdatum i 1 kommun GC8VA8Y
180 kalenderdatum i 1 kommun GC8VA90
90 kalenderdatum i 1 kommun GC8VA95
45 kalenderdatum i 1 kommun GC8VA99

An visual output like the one from "Needed found dates" would be excellent.

At this moment I only now 1 Swedish cachers who have fulfilled 365 calender dates in 1 county. Can you see if there are even 10 in Sweden that have done it?
3 more, including myself, will have 365 latest in October


These are for visit dates
365 cachingdagar i 1 kommun GC8VA9C
180 cachingdagar i 1 kommun GC8VA9H
90 cachingdagar i 1 kommun GC8VA9N
45 cachingdagar i 1 kommun GC8VA9R

An output showing an calender with the number of visits for each date would be great, if it's possible.

For Calender dates I am not happy about the output and requested a scriptwriter to see if he could make a better output
Re: Event / Foreign caches / 365 visit date
June 24, 2020 09:13PM
so if I understand it well, you must have fill N calendar cells with finds in one county. I'll enhance one of my scripts to do it.
please be patient
Re: Event / Foreign caches / 365 visit date
July 04, 2020 09:05AM
It is not possible to changed these to a calendar because a cacher can visit a county on the same date in different years on the same date. Only the total days is important and if you don't fulfill the checker only gives advice which county is the closes to the required days
Re: Event / Foreign caches / 365 visit date

Re: Event / Foreign caches / 365 visit date
July 03, 2020 08:25PM
Ah, I have totally forgotten to give an answer.

Visit dates
The script is doing what it's supposed to do. But the output is, far from what I was hoping for ;-).
If I have fulfilled it shows **Sigtuna** (586), Which is ok.
If i do not fulfil is shows an long list of visit dates in the county that the cacher are closest to fulfil in.
Is there no way to include an visual calender matrix in the output, that shows the number of visits on each date?


Calender dates
There is still no checker for these.
The checkers from jpavlik are for the same caches and use the same scripts as the ones vogelbird has made

The checkers made by jpavlik are showing the finds in calendar format. Here's jpavlik's checkers in another format:

Very strange. The links in the post from jpavlik goes to the checkers from vogelbird when clicked on. I never noticed that there where a few to many symbols included in the link.

Now that pietrix have given the corrects links I see that they are for calender dates. And that the script output is excellent. Thank you many times.

If the same scripts could be used to show visit dates does checkers would be magnificent.
Re: Event / Foreign caches / 365 visit date

What you mean with "visit dates"? When someone find a cache on 2019-01-01 and another cache in the same county on 2020-01-01, there are 2 founds in that county? In this case the calendar view makes no sense. However maybe that i've don't understand the challenge. Hopelessly the listing is not public yet, so I cannot read it.
Re: Event / Foreign caches / 365 visit date
July 04, 2020 10:02AM
Nothing in any listing is done. So it would be of no help even if you could access them :-).

But it will contain something like this:

To qualify for this challenge you must have X number of visit dates in the same county
An visit date is an unique date where you have found 1 or more caches.
10 caches found on 2018-01-01 is 1 visit date
2 caches found on 2019-01-01 is 1 visit date
1 cache found on 2020-01-01 is 1 visit date
In this example you have an total of 3 visit dates

Since both the visit dates and calender dates challenge can be used in the same county if think that an calender view would make it easier for those that want to fulfil the 365 calender dates. Then they can see which dates are empty in the visit date grid, and plan to find an cache on those dates.

And it would also be interesting to see if one have a lot of visits on the same dates and no visits on other dates.
Re: Event / Foreign caches / 365 visit date
July 04, 2020 10:31AM
I'm sorry but there is no script for what you are asking. But the calendar is not important because only the number of days need to be known.
At the moment it shows
"vogelbird has not yet found any groups of 45 or more different Found for the same County.
To continue working on this challenge, try adding additional Found to the following 1 County for which vogelbird already has 20 Found"
Re: Event / Foreign caches / 365 visit date
July 03, 2020 09:12PM
Oh, I just realized an problem with the output from jpavlik scripts. And that concern those cachers that are colour blind. They will see no difference at all in the green-red calender output.
If there are an easy way to change the numbers to 2 different symbols all cachers can see which dates are fulfilled versus un-filfilled.
Re: Event / Foreign caches / 365 visit date
July 04, 2020 08:25AM
Try it now with modified colors
Re: Event / Foreign caches / 365 visit date
July 04, 2020 09:41AM
Yes, I think that this view is better as there is an larger field for the missing dates.

Thank you for the change
