Simply using the edit cache tab, I changed a traditional to a quiz and then back again.
Seemed to work with no issues so it would be possible for any currently listed benchmark cache listed as something else to be changed over to the new BenchMark type once it is offered.

I am confused however that the listing is linked to the archived GS listing and does not have the OCNA attribute. If it's archived on GS it ain't never coming back, and it seems to be listed here by a different user.
Still, glad to see it. I found two of the First Post caches so far (Toronto and Edmonton) and hope to find others in time.
(as a side note, this does raise one issue for the pending Benchmark cache type: if a particular benchmark is already listed on OCNA as a virtual, can it be listed as a Benchmark? Or changed over?).

I have my idea of what I would like my OCNA BM Cache listing to look like, and I think it would be great to have it's own thread to discuss them. I have really enjoyed listing them on the Waymarking site. Hopefully here they will be more than just something that somebody took a picture of and listed it as OCNA BM #1.

I'm interested in the new BM's as a cache type, but know little about how they will be listed. I have my own idea, and I had considered working up a draft before publish.
Any idea on when the new BM caches will be a cache type here?

However, not too sure that the owner of the original listing (outforthehunt) will be thrilled to see his description was copy-and-pasted (read: plagiarized) to create the OCNA listing.
Please, if you didn't write it, don't use it.
