If I would adopt a cache, would I get all Fav-Points and the old Owner would lose them?

I´m wondering what would happen with the Fav-Points, if I would adopt a Cache from an other owner.

Yes. After an adoption, the cache is considered yours and can't easily be distinguished from the ones you have created yourself. FPs will be deduced from the original owner and added to you.

Indeed - not only will you get the favourite points, but you will also get all that caches ‘finds’ as well and it can be quite disconcerting as your your stats can change dramatically, especially the karma based on your finds and those on your caches! We were surprised to see this happen when we first adopted a cache.

Yes, I made the same experience, but in the other direction. I lost approx. 1000 found-logs, when I gave a cache away for adoption (and a handful of FP's)

It is YOUR Cache as if YOU have hide it. So EVERYTHING in the meantime will be YOURS
