How Many Hides?

Post by DudleyGrunt » Fri Nov 22, 2019 9:15 pm

I'm looking at catching up on updating my overall cache finds tracking spreadsheet.

I'm trying to determine how many OCNA finds I have.

The last time I updated my spreadsheet, I showed 408. (I could have been wrong, but my last find logs would seem to agree.)

My OCNA stat banner on the My Profile page shows 363.

My profile page shows 404 (41 more than the stat banner).

When I attempt to log thru c:geo my log template agrees with the current count of 404.

If I count the caches listed on the full list if found logs, I get 364 (7 pages x 50) + 14 on page 8. Interestingly, the link for the first page indicates that the first items is #0. That seems to indicate the difference between the 363 vs 364.

Any ideas on the discrepencies, specifically between the 363/364 and 404?

Events aren't finds?

My Number of found caches: 158 which is what cgeo shows on login/home.
Number of attended events: 19

158+19= 177, and I have 178 in my "found and attended" caches folder. So it's within 1. Close enough for GC. :D

Overall stats list shows different than individual stats for you and chaz.

1 1 364 DudleyGrunt versus 404 (44 events attended)
2 2 307 sfcchaz versus 360 (53 events attended)

Others down the list have same on personal page as overall list. Hmm

If I remember correctly, Events are NOT counted as finds in other nodes of OC. We are unique in counting them. As a result the addition of Events as Finds is a requested alteration that has not yet been implemented for our upgrade. It is expected to be added but is a low priority to those that are doing the remaining upgrade work.

Thanks. 364+4+408 which is what I actually thought I should have. Thanks for the assist.

I was hoping to add a find in Martinsburg, WV this weekend, but it was a DNF on the target (crosslisted with GC) cache.
