What a treat it was to see so many at the Trackable event last night including Houston Control (Best Collection winner) and the esteemed Mr Parker Plus (Best Trackable winner). Even the sandbox got some love by some of the kiddos. I posted a few quick snapshots of some of the folks and their trackables, I only wish I could post my EPIC photo of Parker Plus with his trackable...Alas it would be a spoiler, but I'll be able to show it privately next time we see each other in person
Here's an entry for his trackable: "This award winning Trackable was truly Number One at the May 25th PnG event in NW Houston. What a treat to have it's owner Mr. Parker Plus display this multi-purpose human trackable. I have what is sure to be one of the finest photos EVER of the Owner flashing (flipping?) his trackable, but I am unable to post it since it would be a spoiler EPIC as Always Mr. Parker! Thanks so much."
Anyway, it was a great turnout, thanks to all who made the long trek to the NW side, it was a treat to see you all!
This makes me sad, even though I guess I see their point. I really wanted to see a new icon just for the ease of searching for or excluding challenge caches in a search. Sure, it's not that difficult now but it would sure be nice to be able to look at a map and easily see where a cluster of challenge caches are.
"What’s Not Changing (for now)
The idea of a challenge cache icon or attribute earned significant support from the community. We agree there are a lot of good reasons to implement one. However, we want to confirm that the new framework will reduce the problems which led to the moratorium. It wouldn’t make sense to engineer a new icon or attribute only to lose it if challenge caches don’t work out. We’re going to give it a year or so, and then re-evaluate the situation. If we find that things are going well, then we will strongly consider adding a new icon or attribute for challenge caches"
