    A really World Flashmob

    We still have the occasional flash mob in my area, a few are related to the WWFM's mentioned above. No restrictions on the activity per se, as long as the start to finish time adds up to 30 minutes. It's not like geocachers followed the norm for flash mobs to begin with when shorter time frames were allowed. We're kind of a non conforming group.

    I thought that Flash Mob Events have not been permitted since 2014? An event must last a minimum of thirty minutes.

    A really World Flashmob

    If you want everyone to have a flash mob on the same date, it's more complicated than you thought... If the German flash mob is at 3 AM on, for instance, Saturday, then in America it will still be Friday. That pesky International Date Line is going to mess things up. Also, there are actually 38 time zones (UTC +14 to UTC -12, including fractional zones),and the range of 26 hours means that there isn't a time when all the world is on the same date. You'd have to choose how much of the world you want to cover, then assign times based on that. Or, I guess you could say " At 12 noon local time in each time zone" but that is an artificial simultaneity.

    List of drafts is not in order

    I just logged 6 caches, 3 found on one date and the other 3 on a different date,, all of which were listed in the proper order. When I hovered the cursor over each entry I could see the time as well as the date, so the GPS is obviously supplying the time the note was created. Does Locus Pro supply the time to the web site? I keep my notes so so short if part were to be truncated there would note left. LOL

    how to see a cache health score

    Is it considered appropriate to ask a reviewer about the CHS level of one's caches? Or to ask TPTB? I don't necessarily need to know right now. Just wondering about the policy. But it wouldn't kill me if there was a leetle "green light" icon or something to look at, for each of my caches.

    how to see a cache health score

    The topic of this thread is "how to see a cache health score." Seeing that the OP is a very good cache owner/maintainer, I assumed this question was asked in an effort to do an even better job. In that spirit, I posted a tip that would help improve a very good health score into an excellent health score. This resulted in the thread going off topic. I now regret my prior post, and I apologize to the OP for any distress caused by the replies. Your caches have nothing, absolutely nothing, to worry about.

    Ha ha, I should've known you were the one responsible. It's always the dragon's fault 😋

    how to see a cache health score

    It seems like a one-size-fits-all algorithm. But as Keystone mentioned, certain things improve the score. Is it possible that Certain Things also prevent the one-DNF trigger? I've seen a bunch of local caches archived after one DNF and the subsequent un-heeded warning logs. I've found most of those before, I know what they're like. A cache may be "findable" in the most flexible definition, at some percentage of remaining a "cache", and eventually crosses the threshold. It's good that those are gone. I haven't seen one yet that didn't reeeally deserve it, so at least it works fine on this end of the planet. Yeah, I should have logged NA on those and a few hundred other local caches, but never did, so I'm the reason they made a CHS. Sorry.

    Surely though the likelihood of that find being false is orders of magnitude lower than the likelihood of the DNF not being due to a missing cache. It seems an odd way of interpreting logs. Maybe if there was a long string of DNFs on a low-difficulty cache that following find might be considered statistically suspicious, but with just one DNF? Or maybe I just live in a very different caching world to the rest of the planet.

    how to see a cache health score

    Maybe it's because people will log a “Find” with a very loose definition of a “Find”, and some didn't necessarily find it recently. I once tried to find a flare tube cache in a hollow tree, now the whole tree had disintegrated, pieces spread everywhere, cache gone. DNF. Next log from somecacher: “TFTC”. If instead there was an OM log, it might say something about the situation (tree's gone), that the container is now in place in a decent spot. I'd be comfortable enough to go look again. Maybe it's something like that.

    how to see a cache health score

    This is something I really don't understand. The log pattern on that cache goes Publish - Found - Found - DNF - WN - Found. Why doesn't the most recent find cancel out the preceding DNF? Surely the only maintenance issue a DNF can suggest is a missing cache (people don't log DNF if the logbook is wet or full, or the container is damaged), and the subsequent find shows that it wasn't. Why does it still need an OM to fully wipe away the effect of that DNF?

    Claiming a FTF

    An interesting example, because in a situation like that, where I arrived to find the FTF already signing the log, I wouldn't dream of claiming a joint FTF as it had already been found by the time I got there. Only if I arrive while the other person is still searching would I consider it and, assuming the other person spotted it before I did, would only claim joint FTF with their consent - usually I'll just wait until they've logged their find and if they say something like "found jointly with BFJ" I'll say something similar, otherwise I'll just describe how things panned out at GZ. But we're a pretty laid-back community here and no-one takes the FTF race too seriously.

    More precise Help Center link. All of your caches have awesome health scores, except for this one, which is still way above the point where a cache health score email notice would be sent to you. Tip: If you had written an "Owner Maintenance" log instead of a "Write Note" log when you checked on your cache, its health score would be even higher. Thank you for being a good cache owner!

    Claiming a FTF

    How do we determine *correct procedures* in a game which we all play our own way.. within the guidelines? For example, to keep on topic with FTF's.. in my area if a cacher arrives at GZ after a cache has been found but the cache and/or logbook are still in the hands of the person who FOUND it.. the FTF will offer to share the FTF and I've not known many (if any) who reject the offer and log a 2TF.. but if we are playing to the letter of the law (a law which doesn't exist coz we only have guidelines and they don't give guidance on FTF's) the cacher who arrived 2nd shouldn't claim a Joint FTF because they weren't even there when the cache was found. How about group caching at events? In my area we have monthly events which have caches published mid event and a group of cachers dash out to find them. Sometimes it's a large group and those at the front sign the logbook with a team name and ALL in attendance deem it a Joint FTF, despite some of them never having seen the cache, let alone the log book!

    I have heard of a cache health score... Is there a way for me to see that! Or is it not for the average guy!

    Nieuwe cache plaatsen

    Woon een evenement bij en vraag het aan een aantal van de aanwezigen. Misschien zal iemand je helpen. U kunt ook in het Helpcentrum zoeken. Succes! [ Attend an event and ask some of those who attend. Perhaps someone will help you. You can also search the Help Center. Good luck! ]

    A really World Flashmob

    Sort of agree with Touchstone, thinking about trying to get times agreed to by countries ... The largest city in my state has had enough problems with non-geocaching flash mobs the last three years, and evening hours (I feel) aren't a bright idea. Just the name sets the police commission off. May be similar issues in other states, and all having to agree on a time. - Even podcacher says " on the same day at (mostly) the same time"... Unlike Germany and the UK, , you do realize that some countries have multiple times zones, right?

    A really World Flashmob

    Sonny and Sandy (Podcacher) already thought of this about 15 years ago.
  28. Sounds like you were opted in on the new search/map experience. Any other thoughts/observations? Is this new experience favorable to you?
