Lab cache hides in statistics on project-gc.com ? [closed]

+1 vote
119 views

Now that lab cache finds seems to have been successfully implemented, I have got to ask: Will there be a statistic for lab cache hides ?

According to my profile on geocaching.com I have one labcache hide. This is not an error. One of the first lab caches available was a cache where you could hide a lab cache that only could be found once, ever. It was launched in February of 2014 as a sort of Valentines day gimmick.

Are there any plans to include lab cache hides in any way in the statistics on project-gc.com ?

As of right now, we have access to rather little information about lab caches. We know about finds of them but we don't know their owner, for instance. That means we can't show hide statistics, obviously.

Right. The reason I am asking is that from what I understand, Groundspeak are still developing the part of the API that project-gc uses to pull data about labcaches. My point is to throw the owner-part in with the other requirements so that it has a chance to get included before you call it a day with respect to lab caches :)
