+dartymoor Posted March 11, 2013 Share Posted March 11, 2013 I'm CO of a couple of smallish rural series. Mostly they're scored quite low on Difficulty (I place caches to be found, especially on a series), and I set Terrain as per the guidelines on the hider page, or here http://support.Groundspeak.com/index.php?pg=kb.page&id=82 Recently, a more experienced cacher suggested that I should have increased the difficulty because they had to walk four miles to reach it following the series. I countered that the cache in question was actually a roadside one and as such, could be done as a C&D. They claim most series setters do this. Now, I *think* I'm in the right. Each cache is submitted on its own and I believe should be scored on those merits. Also, if my series was done in reverse, the high scorers would come first! But because of the experience and find count of this finder, I'm doubting myself. I won't change the existing caches in case anyone is using them for a grid, but I'm curious what others think on this? Quote Link to comment
