# Sort souvenirs by exclusiveness

## Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

It would be nice to see how exclusive (rare) a souvenir is and to be able to sort one's souvenirs by exclusiveness.

Exclusiveness (rareness) could be measured in two (reciprocal) ways:

• How many geocachers own this souvenir:
A souvenir owned by 10000 geocachers is more exclusive (rare) than a souvenir owned by 100000 geocachers.
• One of how many geocachers owns this souvenir:
A souvenir owned by one of 100 geocachers (i.e. by 1% of all geocachers) is more exclusive (rare) than a souvenir owned by 1 of 50 geocachers (i.e. by 2% of all geocachers).

Please see the souvenir information available here on Project-GC.com as an interim workaround.

Many thanks for this very helpful info.
Nevertheless it would be nice to have this on https://www.geocaching.com/my/souvenirs.aspx

And especially the sorting feature seems important to me, as it is quite cumbersome to find out the most exclusive (rare) souvenirs by going through all souvenirs on https://project-gc.com/Tools/SouvenirList

Sorting souvenirs is an often asked for function.  I'd like to see them able to be sorted as well.

Most we know would like to separate the yearly, or countries/states visited souvenirs from those given in promotions.

For many, they simply aren't the same grouping.

I don't feel "rare" or limited sounds like a souvenir grouping as much as just another stat,   but I'd probably be for this if included with other, prior requests.

Related to the souvenir sorting:  I noticed this morning in someone else's iPhone app that the souvenirs in the profile are all shown in chronological order, an option not offered on the website.

I remember someone mentioning that a while ago.  I wouldn't care for that one either.

At least now, some are together (geocaching day, CITO, etc.) as I feel they should be.
