Pocket Queries: Allow event sub types please.

Recommended Posts

At the moment Event Cache
includes: Geocaching Block Party, Groundspeak Lost and Found Celebration, Giga-Event Cache, Lost and Found Event Cache, Cache In Trash Out Event, Mega-Event Cache

It would be really handy if  this could be subdivided into sub types or at  least three groups:
eg:
Events
Cache In Trash Out Event
All other event types

Why?
I'd like to run a weekly PQ for Mega and Giga events so I can see when new ones appear.
Notifications aren't suitable for this because the search radius is only about 50 miles whereas a single PQ can search the whole world.

Relying on the Groundspeak  Mega Event  bookmark list isn't ideal because not all Mega events get added to it.

Thanks

Bookmark this search url:

EU - Mega/Giga Events

Add the search result to a list:

PQ that BM list and run that PQ at regular intervals.

I never use that search page but it seems like it might suffice as a workaround.

Thanks :)

Yes, specifically when you use it sorted by Event Date (descending).

Just add

&sort=PlaceDate&asc=False

in front of '#Content'

You'll now have the most current events on top of the list. ;-)

Another approach is using an api partner app (like GSAK and others)  and getting a set of caches via Groundspeak's api.
