+CanadianRockies Posted May 25, 2016 Share Posted May 25, 2016 Glad to see them come back and am generally happy about the new guidelines... I like the idea of requiring a Challenge Checker, what I don't like is now we are forced to login to Project-GC to use them. I would like to see GS and PGC agree that Challenge Checkers can be used without logging in.. Personally, I don't use ProjectGC and do not want them authenticate to my GC.com username on their site... The new Challenge cache guidelines state: "Challenge owners will need to make sure that cachers can show that they have completed the cache requirements without compromising their privacy." And Groundspeak's general guidelines state: "Cache listings that require a cacher to visit another website will not be published if the finder must create an account with, or provide personal information to, the other website." My guess is that if you can prove you completed a Challenge cache by uploading part of your Profile--Statistics page, providing a list of qualifying caches, or using some other method, then the Challenge cache owner must accept that as an alternative to posting the output from a challenge checker. Of course, the Challenge cache owners can always run your finds through the challenge checkers themselves, so you probably aren't buying much extra privacy by avoiding the Project-GC website.
