Geocache Description:

Dette er en challenge-cache. Læs beskrivelsen nedenfor omhyggeligt, inden du logger!
This is a challenge cache. Carefully read the description below before logging!


Dansk Udfordring: Beholderen ligger på de opgivne koordinater, men inden du besøger cachen, skal du opfylde følgende krav: Løs en geotjekkerberiget mystery fra mindst 50 forskellige lande.

Præcisering: Kun mystery-caches med geotjekker på cachesiden kan anvendes. Cacherne skal ikke nødvendigvis besøges; det er det grønne lys fra geotjekkeren, der er afgørende. Egne caches tæller ikke med, men inaktive eller arkiverede caches må gerne anvendes. Med "land" menes det område, der er angivet i cachebeskrivelsen; således er fx Ålandsøerne et "land", mens individuelle amerikanske stater ikke er det.

Geotjekker: Med "geotjekker" menes der i denne forbindelse en webbaseret side designet til automatisk verifikation af koordinater, fx GeoCheck, GeoChecker, Certitude eller den indbyggede geotjekker fra geocaching.com. Alternative verifikationsmetoder som fx svar på mail fra cacheejer, de facto verifikation af koordinaterne ved at finde den fysiske cache, brug af geotjekkere på andre websider eller enhver anden (uanset hvor velbegrundet) form for tro på, at opgaven er rigtigt løst, tæller ikke.

Logning: Du må signere cachens logbog når som helst, men du må først logge cachen som fundet, når kravet er opfyldt. Dokumenter din bedrift ved at oprette en bogmærkeliste som beskrevet nedenfor. Jeg forbeholder mig ret til at bede om uddybende dokumentation. I tvivlstilfælde afgør jeg suverænt, hvorvidt udfordringen er mødt.

Bogmærkeliste: Din liste skal have navnet "International Man of Mystery (dit geocachernavn)" og beskrivelsen "Mysteries solved as part of the [url=http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=a6f544b1-2705-4096-a0d2-6d2366a8d8e9]International Man of Mystery[/url] (GC2HQBQ) challenge". Listen skal indeholde de caches, du har løst for at kvalificere dig; sæt derudover denne cache på. Skriv landets navn før navnet på cachen. Husk at sætte flueben i felterne "I want to share this list with others" og "Make this list public". (Hvis du ikke er premium member og derfor ikke har adgang til at oprette bogmærkelister, så få et andet medlem til at oprette listen for dig.)

FFC: FFC'et tilfalder den første, der logger cachen på retmæssig vis.

Originalitet: For variationens skyld opfordrer jeg til, at der i videst muligt omfang anvendes mysteries, som ikke er medtaget i en tidligere finders liste. Undgå gerne de mange kedelige barcode-, morse- og sudoku-opgaver derude og find i stedet nogle med lidt mere kød på – jo flere stjerner, jo bedre! Dette er dog ikke et formelt krav.

English Challenge: The cache container is located at the coordinates shown above, but before visiting, you must meet the following requirement: Solve geocheckable mysteries from at least 50 different countries.

Clarification: Only mystery caches with associated geocheckers on the cache description may be used. The caches themselves need not be visited; it is the green lights from the geocheckers that count. Your own caches may not be used, but disabled or archived caches are fine. In this context, "country" means the area shown in the cache description; thus, the Aland Islands constitute a "country", whereas individual U.S. states do not.

Geochecker: In this context, a "geochecker" means a web page designed for automatic verification of coordinates, e.g. GeoCheck, GeoChecker, Certitude, or the built-in geochecker from geocaching.com. Alternative verification methods, such as email correspondence with the cache owner, finding the physical cache, using geocheckers on pages other than the cache description itself, or any other means of checking that the correct solution has been obtained (however convincing) do not count.

Logging: You may sign the logbook anytime, but you can only log the cache as found once the requirement has been met. Remember to document your accomplishment online. To do so, create a bookmark list as described below. I reserve the right to ask for detailed documentation and to delete your log if I am not satisfied that the challenge has been met.

Bookmark List: Your list must be titled "International Man of Mystery (your geocaching name)" and contain the description "Mysteries solved as part of the [url=http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=a6f544b1-2705-4096-a0d2-6d2366a8d8e9]International Man of Mystery[/url] (GC2HQBQ) challenge". It must include the caches you've solved to qualify, plus this one. To ease verification, prefix the name of each cache with the name of the country in which the cache is located. Don't forget to tick the "I want to share this list with others" and "Make this list public" checkboxes. (If you are not a premium member and therefore cannot create bookmark lists, feel free to let another premium member host the list for you.)

Originality: For the sake of variation, I suggest that you try to tackle mysteries which have not been used by earlier finders. For the sake of your own mental health, I suggest that you try to avoid trivial barcode, Morse code, or sudoku puzzles and focus on finding something a little more challenging – the greater the number of difficulty stars, the better! However, these are not formal requirements.
