I think the cache karma in Hide stats is wrong.

The find count I received on my caches doesn't include Lab caches, but my finds count does. This makes the number wrong. I understand that getting hidden Labs data is a problem, but then the sum of my finds shouldn't include them too.

This is something we'll have to think about, how we want this to be. The core issue is that Geocaching HQ haven't given us access to who owns which lab cache. Because of that there isn't a perfect solution.

Hi, thanks for Your answer. I suggest simply to take out Labs from number of my finds in karma calculation. Even if there was a way to find out Lab cache author and add it to my caches finds, there will be two reasons not to include them: First, You can create only one Lab series, but You can find unlimited amount of them. Second, the FP karma would be nonsense, because Labs cannot get FPs.
