Lab cache for local event

Recommended Posts

So, is there some impediment to extending lab caches to local (non-mega) events at this point? Seems like there has been ample time to assess the product?

Thanks

Hi sjclimber - we aren't ready to roll Lab Caches out for the public just yet, but we agree we've been given a lot of time to asses the product and gather awesome feedback. We are working on grooming the feedback to enhance and make further improvements on the product. Thanks, Katie

I think it's a great approach to have some limits on Lab Caches, rather than expanding it to any/all cachers. If any cacher could create Lab Caches, then I'm sure there will be a proliferation of them just so people can juice their find counts. That would become a drain on GS resources to support that functionality.
