I see the numbers are now back up beside found caches, and challenges are now separate from finds compared to earlier where they were included in your find total. The way it should have been. Nice


Yes! I see this now:

How about rating on a scale of 1 - 10 instead of the black or white of "awesome" or "don't like"?

So you're probably one of the negative votes on my Chanhassen sign challenge? Smile

I think that the Challenges, as they stand, have potential but also have a long, long, way to go before I will take them seriously. But all of you that participated in the flagging and thumbs-downing JUST TO PROTEST should be ashamed. Take your beef up with Groundspeak and not with those playing with the challenges.

I'm surprised that they have the thumb up/down feature - but, perhaps Groundspeak should do that for the Challenge feature. Seems to me that the Challenges are just about what folks do on waymarking.com with a twist.

Me too. And it really is a waymark. I think the should have just COMPLETELY brought back virts. I think that would have been better.

Right now for me they seem to be a lot more for the kids. When I first looked at them I though this is great now instead of a ? icon you get an actual challenge one. These seem like modified silly virtuals to me.

I was thinking they were more like the challenges that were in place long before Groundspeak implemented this one, like the Lucky 7 Series or the famous 100 caches in a day, or a cache a day for a whole year one too. Now those kind made me want to go out and see if I can do it.

Nope, no votes from me one way or the other. I saw the "Kiss the frog" and "burp at your neighbor" and that was enough for me. Haven't looked at any of them since.
