Updates to Challenge Cache Guidelines

Recommended Posts

Today, we have updated the Challenge Cache Guidelines to add clarity to a few issues.


  • The 9. Time-Limited section has been amended to note that is acceptable for challenges to require finding some number of caches per day of week, provided the number is cumulative over all years. Example, find 100 caches on Mondays.


  • The 10. Source of Criteria section has been amended to note that is it not acceptable for challenges to restrict finds to caches published prior to a particular date. Example, find 100 Wherigo caches published prior to 11/21/2019. However, we do not want for this guidance to inadvertently affect Jasmer challenges, so we have also specified in 10. Source of Criteria that Jasmer challenges and variations are acceptable.


Reviewers have generally already been reviewing challenge caches with each of these points in mind, so we don't expect this to be a major change for most regions. But we hope the added guideline clarity will reduce any potential issues.
