Why do lab caches no longer count for distinct cache types in Beltgen?

0 votes
A few days ago, the statistics included a lab cache as being one of the types under FINDS in 'most cache types found in a day' and also under BADGEGEN/BELTGEN they counted for 'distinct cache type on day with most distinct types found'. So, for example, we had 11 types (including lab cache) on one day under FInds, and 22 points in Beltgen (2 points per distinct type).

Something has now changed. The former is still the same, but the latter has now been reduced to 20 points for 10 types. Any ideas why it has changed? We hope it's only temporary, as it seemed to make sense when it counted in both sections before.

That's what you have when I look at your statistics as well. I assume it will correct itself again. If it's something that will come and go we will have to figure out why.

Many thanks - much appreciated for you taking a look! We'll be patient and see what happens!
PS! Your name is confusing to me since the company owning Project-GC is Ground Zero Communications, GZC in short. You nick is very close to "GZC Team". :)
Indeed! But GCZ is part of our car number and also contains 2 of our own initials so when we first started caching, it was a logical choice! Sorry for the unintended confusion!
No worries. I tend to react every time I see the name though. It mostly means I have an easier time recognizing your name. Interesting to hear the story behind it as well.
We have just checked Beltgen, and it does indeed seem now to have corrected itself. We will let you know if it comes and goes.
