Pocket Queries

Recommended Posts

I discovered today that if I run a pocket query for “Seasonal Access,” it will actually return some caches that DO NOT have that attribute. 

For example, my query for Georgia returned as the first cache in the list GC6TWYT, C3 Series #1  - Fitness Trail. But when I click on the cache and look at its attributes, seasonal access isn’t actually there. “Available in winter” is, though. Apparently the program assigns those caches to “seasonal access” also?

Some attributes "ghost" in pocket queries. If they were ever attached to the cache, they will continue to return, even after removed. GeoTour, Partnership, Tourist Friendly, and apparently per your post, Seasonal Access still  ghost. Build a PQ for Georgia caches with the Partnership attribute.  There are currently NONE, but that query will return 22 caches that had it in the past.

 

When Attributes were new, they all "ghosted" in pocket queries. This was discovered when Needs Maintenance log and attributed were added.   That NM attribute ghosted meant that a CO could fix the cache, clear the attribute, but it would still return in a PQ as NM.  I suspect that many of the  attributes around when NM was new were fixed of the ghosting issue, and many of those added later were not.
