Geocache Description:


[ENG] This is a challenge cache. You need to fulfill the Loyalty Points Challenge requirements before you can log this cache as Found it online. Found it -logs without proof of challenge completion will be removed. You can visit the cache site in advance of the challenge completion. Your eventual Found it -log date should match the cache visiting date.

This challenge was created to give recognition for those amazing cache creators creating a lot of caches for the rest of us to hunt for. A big, collective Thank You goes for all cache owners being listed in the challenge completion logs.

Loyalty Points Challenge


Find and log online at least 100 points (combined cache D/T values) from at least 5 cache owners.

A cache owner is defined as the user whose profile is opening from the top of the cache listing. If there are multiple cache owners listed in textual form you can choose to count the cache for anyone listed. However, points from one cache can only be used once.

Adopted caches can be counted for the original owner or for the current owner, which ever suits you better. Again, one cache can only be counted for one cache owner.

Cache D/T rating changes can be counted using current or historical information. If you choose to use historical information, prepare to prove that the cache has had that D/T combination at the time of your visit.

You need to be able to produce proof of the challenge completion. You can choose the format, but it should be reasonably easy for me to check it. In general, image format proofs cannot be easily converted back to textual/numerical format which makes the verification of qualification a tedious task. Below are a couple of good examples.

English description will continue after the synopsis in Finnish.

Lyhennelmä suomeksi


Tämä on haastekätkö, jonka loggaaminen edellyttää seuraavan haasteen ehtojen täyttymistä. Löytöloggaukset, jotka eivät täytä haasteen ehtoja, poistetaan.

Tavoitteena on kerätä vähintään 100 pistettä (yhteenlasketut kätkön D- ja T-arvot) vähintään 5 kätköntekijältä kultakin.

Löysän pipon periaatteen mukaisesti voit laskea yksittäisen kätkön tuomat pisteet: joko nykyisten tai löytöhetken D/T -arvojen mukaisesti; joko nykyiselle tai aiemmalle omistajalle; joko kätkökuvauksen omistajalinkin takaa löytyvälle tai omistajalinkin tekstissä mainitulle kätköntekijälle. Yhden kätkön pisteet voi kuitenkin käyttää vain kerran tämän haasteen puitteissa.

Premium-jäsenille on tarjolla tarkistin, joka tuottaa hyväksytystä suorituksesta PGP/GPG-varmennetun sertifikaatin. Tarkistimella ei My Finds PQ:n tietojen vajavaisuudesta johtuen valitettavasti ole aivan yhtä löysä pipo. Reilun pelin hengessä tarkistimen luoma sertifikaatti hyväksytään todisteeksi haasteen suorituksesta vain jos sertifikaatissa mainitun kätköilijän profiilin tilastovälilehti on avoinna kaikille. Tämän tarkoituksena on kätköilijän keskimääräisen D/T-arvon tarkistaminen.

Todisteet haasteen suorituksesta voi joko lisätä loggaukseen tai toimittaa sähköpostitse. Kuvamuotoisia todisteita pyydetään mahdollisuuksien mukaan välttämään tarkistamisen työläyden vuoksi.

Kätkö


Kätkö sijaitsee listauksen koordinaateissa Tolppatunturiksikin kutsutulla nyppylällä keskellä urbaania metsää. Parkkipaikan koordinaateista löytyy tilaa muutamalle autolle.

Kuvauksen D-arvo kuvastaa haasteen vaikeusastetta, joka muodostuu keskimäärin 100-150 kätkön löytämisestä. Kätkön piilotus on D2.5/T2.

Qualification checker for Premium Members


As it is quite obvious from the length of the previous chapter, it is time consuming for you to generate the proof of challenge completion and for me to verify it. Therefore I've made a qualification checker, which will take care of the hard work and produce a PGP/GPG signed certificate for the challenge completion. Here is an example of the output generated by the qualification checker:

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

spitko has found 100 points or more from following
cache owners:

1) Mikkozzz : 35 caches = D96.5 / T90 = 186.5 points
2) arisoft : 89 caches = D282.5 / T224.5 = 507 points
3) Tilhet : 21 caches = D53.5 / T52 = 105.5 points
4) HeViKanit : 23 caches = D53 / T49.5 = 102.5 points
5) SilverQuick : 23 caches = D64.5 / T56.5 = 121 points
6) 2JMT : 30 caches = D67.5 / T49.5 = 117 points
7) Liimes : 22 caches = D61.5 / T51 = 112.5 points

Number of caches in GPX file: 1783
Average D 2.44 / T 2.20

Checked using http://gc.pitko.net/gc4t720/points.pl

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE-----
Version: GnuPG v1.4.5 (GNU/Linux)

iD8DBQFSkMjJ7EWb0jdLrcERAsPQAJ9Hv1wR1jakTJHvLUlOy29A8pDCWwCfYqB8
9VMrO1G5LVLoHWxvfA4wbN8=
=wr1/
-----END PGP SIGNATURE-----

The certificate signature can be verified using the public key available on the qualification checker front page, or using an online verification tool.

The checker is using information available from My Finds Pocket Query, which is a Geocaching.com Premium Member feature. The PQ does not contain cache owner or D/T rating change history. Therefore the qualification checker can only use current cache information. All caches in PQ have only a primary cache owner. The qualification checker uses only that information. The checker will also discard any finds made to own caches, including adopted ones.

Points from Daeroni are missing from the example certificate above as one of his caches is co-owned with Yeenoghu. This brings the total points for Daeroni's primarily owned 16 caches down to 99.5 points for the time being.

To ensure fair play, this format of proof is only accepted if the profile statistics page for the cacher named in the certificate is open for public view. The purpose of this requirement is to verify the cacher's average D/T value.

Proof of the challenge completion can be added to your Found it -log or you can send the details to me via email.

The cache


The cache is located at the listed coordinates, which point to the middle of an urban forest. There are a couple of parking spots available at the listed parking place coordinates.

The cache D-rating indicates the difficulty for the challenge, which requires typically 100-150 caches to be found. The cache hiding is rated at D2.5/T2.
