Caches "placed" prior to May 2000!!!

3 posts in this topic

There are currently 52 caches with a publish date before the oldest still active "Mingo" (GC30).

How do these slip through the crack?

Why is it possible to make the publish date prior to May 2000?

When they updated the CSP, they restricted that option on new Listings.  Prior to that, people tended to play around with it, probably thinking it was hilarious.  I've heard of some people using that "feature" as part of a Puzzle concept.

Early on, there were no limits on the placed date. Sometime (2003?) the limit became 01 Jan 1900 ( though this could be defeated with some work. )

When the cache report form (CSP) that's in use now was started (sorry, I forget when...) it limited place date to 1 year back from current date to 1 day forward (different for events of course, which are always in the future). However, the edit form still allowed back to 01 Jan 1900.

The recent update to edit form now  limits to 01 Jan 2000. And it's a colossal nuisance to get the date back, as the only way to do is by clicking the calendar one month at a time, over and over and over.. Pity that wasn't  set at say 01 Jan 2010, but this is some improvement.
