merging two cachers PQs

I have a caching buddy (PM) who I cache with a lot, but we also cache separately. When we get together now to pick cache locations, we end up with sort of a baseball card exchange. I suggest one area, he says got it. He suggests an area and I say got it.

 

Is there any way for us to merge our cache PQs (just for statistical purposes) so that our common unfond caches could be displayed? If not this might be a feature that could be useful to cachers.

 

If you think this is an assinine request, just ignore this thread. If there is a way already (GSAK ?)existing, then I would be interested?

Otherwise, sharing of Pocket Query data in not permitted in accordance with the licensing agreement.

 

i have recently pointed out this myself to someone, but they were talking about sharing it with a group of non-premium members

 

in this case, i really don't see what the problem is, each is a PM running their own PQ's and comparing...this situation to me doesn't qualify as sharing

Well to conform to the GC agreement, I guess I will have to wait around until GC gets around to making this feature available.

Well personally I don't see where another PM would be a "third party". So, if I want to I'll do it anyway if it is another Premium Member. If the powers that be would provide the option "not found by "user name"" when running a PQ then we wouldn't have to worry about it. And yes, I have provided the same feedback on the feedback channel.
