Map of Challenge Checkers doesn't show all Challenges. What can be the problem?

0 votes

 I have all DT's selected, "Show All", and Exclude only Archived caches.

I first noticed this last month after those 225 or so new challenges in Dallas County TX got published and I was only seeing less than 10 of those 225. Odd! I still see less than 10. So its been this way for me for a while now. It seems that there is some hidden filter somewhere limiting what I see. I have "Show All" selected and only "Exlude Archived". For Williamson CO TX which currently has 28 active Challenges, I see only 8.  The eight  I see are: - Power of Two Challenge Cache - HiDude 20K challenge cache - Round Rock Challenge Cache 1 - 80 Found Virtuals - Round Rock Challenge Cache #2 - 70 Texas Counties - Round Rock Challenge Cache 3 - 25 Events & 3 CITOs - Round Rock Challenge Cache 4 - Special 250 - Round Rock Challenge Cache 5 - 20 Letterboxes - Old-Fogey: State Challenge Edit

Please, provide examples of a caches you do not see there in the list.
Here are 2 of the 20 I don't see.
I am able to find these two as challenges in the map of challenge caches. Can you share the link to the map you tried that did not list them (after clicking on "Create Map")?

Have you checked Live map with filtering Williamson,-97.76321;z=10

Another filtering with Mysties and Cachename ChallI  found a huge amount of Challenges

I just tried it (the Live Map) and it seems to work.  I filtered on just mysteries and with the word "Challenge" in the title and it seems to show all the Challenge Caches.   so why doesn't the Challenge Checker Map show me them?

In your search, you have "Cache name contains", which contained "challenge " (note the space in the end. If you remove that, you will get all the caches you expect.

Well gosh darn it, I never noticed that!   Thanks.

I also tried the Challenge checker Live map and I see ALL 28

excluded archived. All Caches.

Hve you selected /filterd some DT ?

Also, the cache name containing "challenge" is already part of the filtering. You don't need to specify that yourself - only challenge caches (or possibly non-challenge caches with the word in the name) would show up on the map anyway.
