This contest is about these challenges: Non-Trad Challenges, Pennsylvania

When every challenge in this trail has a checker, we will reward the top 3 tag creators for the trail with 2 years of free membership each. If the 3rd position is shared, none of them will get rewarded, so make sure you keep ahead to not lose your reward with the last checkers.

The membership can be used by the receiver, or given away to someone else, or sold, it's all up to the winners.

Already existing tags does of course count, though it's only 4/58.

If you find that a challenge is technically impossible, reply here and tell me. I will then review it, and add it as an exclusion if I agree.

Feel free to post here when you have created a checker, so that we can follow the process. When the trail is complete, do post here so that I notice, and can process the rewards.

Exclusion list:

Maybe excluded (almost doable):

Rewards will be sent within a few minutes. After removing duplicate tags the top list was like this:

  1. Target. 15 (+1 dup)
  2. vogelbird 10
  3. pinkunicorn 10
  4. jpavlik 9  (+1 dup)

According to the contest rules only Target. would be rewarded since #2 and #3 are equal. But, we will send 2 years to all top 3 anyway, and a consolation prize of 1 year to jpavlik.

For the word challenges it would actually be helpful for people with a checker that makes a list of definite completions even if it doesn't necessarily find all corner cases. I'd think that most people with a reasonable number of finds will have completed this but making the list is a chore. A checker with a warning that it may not find absolutely everything would be a good thing, I think.

Seems that all possible checkers are done. The only missing checkers are for cache that can have thousand of different words for describe the object (like Valleys, Creek, Rocks) or can be defined by milions of phrases (Boo, EC non EC). The 5 year ressurection cannot be check because there is no possibility to obtain the list of founds of given cache.

So, seems that the checker request is done, you can reward it.
