New request, Owned caches PQ (all Logs)

We have a bunch of new caches placed this week, and we expect many new logs on most of them. (BC Parks, and the BCGA has let us place nine, that are generating a lot of interest).

 

I keep stats on who logs our caches with GSAK and the FindStatGen3 macro. One of the groups of items this maco lists, is the number of logs, and who found our caches. I like to review this list.

 

Problem is that normal PQ only give 5 logs, and I get weekely PQ, so if our caches are found more than 5 times a week, then some of the logs are missing.

 

I know that "Download GPX" from a cache listing, while "show all logs" is selected, will give us 20 logs. This may not always be enough, without clicking it often in a week.

 

I also know that there are some other "not quite valid" ways of getting the info I want, but I do not want to violate the TOU (Terms of Use Agreement).

 

What does everyone think of allowing Owned caches in pocket queries to include at least a week's worth of new logs?

Although this is not directed toward your actual question/request (more logs in a Owned Caches PQ), you might want to check out the "AddLogs" macro available at the Macro Library. It performs a download of ALL logs for a cache (although one cache at a time).

 

Congratulations on the popularity of your caches. That's a pretty high find count for caches after they've been out for a week or so. We don't any where near that level of activity. I do a Owned Caches PQ just once a week and that's more than adequate.

Yes I know of that macro and program, but I think it does violate the TOU, as it electronically downloads the cache page and "mines" the data from it.

 

From one of the posted logs, on one cache, there were at least 5 or 6 today alone. A lot of the finders are on holiday here, so will not log online until they get home. These caches had three special edition coins in them, so there is a lot of interest. But that said, some of our other caches have more than 5 logs a week.

 

Total finds of my caches: 874 finds in 758 total days, 1.15/day, 8.07/week, 35.10/month

 

8.07 a week for all time average, you can see that some weeks would be a lot more...

 

And we don't have a single LPC in the mix either :D
