Wanted: possibility to search for a challenge with from date

When i use this site https://project-gc.com/Tools/Challenges

I get a list of challenges from country and also i can write some words in the challenge.

Regarding challenge we have two different set of challenges.

The ones before the new guidelines and the ones after.

I would love a possibility to search for a challenge based on date its published. When i try to make a challenge its always nice to see if someone have a challenge approved with the new guidelines. Will make the work easier when the local reviewer ask for something about your challenge, then i can say a similar challenge have been published with the new set of guidelines.

Is this much work to add this feature?

You can use Map Compare to add a filter for publish date (to get caches after the change in the guidelines) and then filters for cache name ("challenge") and cache type (Unknown). This will include a small number of false positives in the form of mystery caches that happen to have the word "challenge" in their name without being a challenge cache. My experience is that this number is so small that it makes no difference.

Still it would be great to have a little window to on the search page for challenge and date its published.
When i have problem with a challenge i have made and will make a reviewer note its great to find challenge elsewhere in the world published after the new guidelines.

Searching on the map is good, but very timeconsuming.
Today you can search on a challenge based on country and a searchstring.
Is it possible to add from date so we can find only the challenges with the new guidelines.
