I'd like to suggest that people hiding puzzle multis (any multi with a puzzle-solving component) submit them as mystery caches, not multis. If you submit them as multis, puzzle hounds won't see them, if they watch mystery caches but not multis. If they do see them, they'll be sad that they don't get credit for a puzzle find.

Also I'm guessing that people who like multis will probably be annoyed when they get there and realize they have to solve a puzzle... Not that I understand such people. Wink

If you submit as a puzzle, you'll probably get more finds, we'll get more puzzle numbers, everybody wins.

Note that adding up numbers you read off a plaque doesn't count as puzzle solving. Smile

Actually, anytime the first stage is AT the LISTED coordinates, but intermittent stages are field puzzles, the cache should be listed as multicache. It is the responsibility of puzzlers to do their own research. Smile

Besides, puzzles are a dime a dozen. Multis are rare, so list them as multis whenever possible.

I was asked by the reviewer to submit my field puzzles as multis.

Well that is a good point.. I didn't realize how much rarer multis were. Maybe I should pay more attention to them. Confused
