Not complaining, because we don't do that in this game, but just confused to why I see so many double finds, not two people finding the cache, but ive seen many double scores for the same cache from the same finder. How can you apply for finding it twice? Or how can you get two DNF's during the same day, when only one was posted?

again not complaining, just trying to play fair, I don't get the double application and double reward.

not pointing fingers either, maybe its just new players that don't fully understand the rules. you would think that the reviewers would catch these errors.

steps off soap box
cache on

Log writer hitting the send button twice and not realizing it. "OR" Sometimes the log a cache send seems to get hung up in the thinking mode. If you hit send again you often get two posts if you don't check and delete the extra. It's happened to me a few times.

the scores have been reviewed and corrected.

Sometimes, when the LCG hunters are all out in full force, the reviewing queue is packed with submissions and it can be very time consuming to approve these in a timely manner.

What I would ask is that all the players do two things:

1) be certain to accurately report the dates of the attempt - if you submit the same cache on the same day for two separate days DNFs, one day could be mistakenly deleted as a duplicate entry or look to others as a double posting.

2) be patient when waiting for the scores to reflect you attempts - it could take up to a week for the reviewers to credit your accounts with your points. Rest assured that the month end totals will be there. Duplicate entries a couple days apart can easily be double credited, especially with more than one person reviewing.

Here are four caches that have opportunities to find multiple finds under the same cache number in Northeast Wisconsin. They give you a chance to spend more time in an area, explore, and get multiple logs or finds depending on how you choose to play the game.

GC1WDWC-Phish Creek Photo Op-2 hides, GCGE6B-Door County Challenge-4 hides, GCEC85-SHORE IS MOSSY-2 hides, GCKCB4-Logan Creek 1-2-3 on the “Quiet Side”-3 hides.

Oh, forgot one
3) be sure to utilize the NOTE section of the submission form if a submission is re-entered for correction or any other explaination that will assist the reviewers in crediting the proper points, the note section can be used for this clarification.
