The local geocaching communites in Norway run several Advent calendars for different areas, where we each day have one geocache published from Dec. 1st to Dec. 24th. Cachers are awarded points for logging the Advent calendar caches in December. Extra for FTF's, co-FTF's, own listings and so forth. Needless to say this creates a great competition and fun times. The job associated with updating the statistics and keeping score has become all but trivial with the growing number of participants.
This year, I've made a crude PowerShell-script for updating the stats, but there's still some manual labour required to get it done. Then I thought of Project-gc, maybe we can implement the Advent calendar stats here and have it automatic and near-realtime?
I'd be very interested in access to try and get it up and running, if at all possible.. Hopefully it will be usable by other communities running their own Advent calendars.
All the best, Thorin Eikenskjold
