Confusion between "Advanced" caches and PMO caches

Recommended Posts

The thread Site Shows Cache as Basic--App shows as Premium shows that the current design of the Intro app is confusing in the way that it presents "Advanced" caches, leading some users to think it is referring to PMO caches instead.

 

It would be good to make this distinction more clear.

I agree.

No longer have it to check, but IIRC cache sizes in the app don't match either.

Noticed niraD has a helpful tutorial for new folks on finding caches, but micros are (were?) called "extra small" in the app, and regulars "medium".

 

If nothing jives with geocaching 101 and the Help Center, folks aren't gonna get it. :)

Pick the terms you want to use and stick with them.

Terminology in the phone apps, and programming choices on which caches display in the intro apps, are not cache reviewer issues. If you're reading this thread, please don't write to your reviewer to complain that your thread magically became available to premium members only. Your reviewer didn't do that. More likely, due to the cache's features, it's treated as an "advanced" cache in the intro apps.
