Back in July of 2009, I had received permission to place a cache in a new park that has a historical background with the stipulation that I wait until completion. Twice a year for the past three years I've checked only to be told to check back as work was ongoing and dragging on. Last week I found out that rennovation of a building is holding up publication again until at least August. Do I hold the record for longest wait on a publication? It will be going on four years!

Two weeks ago, I would have thought this an April Fool's joke. We should make you wait four years for your trophy.

So when it does finally get published, does the FTF get to claim lonely cache game points for a FTF on a 4-year old cache?

When the time comes, I hope it doesn't get rejected because it is too close to another cache!

Could it be said that bartrod has been "saving" the spot for 4+ years tho?

Ahh! Yes, it could Very Happy

And in anwer to Big Jim's question, the cache web page is dated 7/11/2009...so would that make the FTF also eligible for the Lonely Cache Game points? I guess only its administrators could answer that. But it's all academic until at least the end of August...or later...or later Rolling Eyes

I think the LCG points will go by the publication date, not the cache page date.

Hopefully you get it all straightened out, Rod.

Not sure how the LCG program gathers information, but as far as GC goes, it uses the date at the top of the cache page. Newly published caches won't show up as "new" unless the date at the top is seven days ago or less.


Side note: Back in the day when we had dial-up, I couldn't get the correct date on any of my cache submissions, and I had to ask the reviewers to change those to current for me. If I forgot to ask, or if I went in to edit something later, the date on the cache page would show up as some time in 1901.

I think that would trump Bartrod's languishing project. Wink

Now that we have the LCG administrators sweating and rewriting the rule book, I think I'll just change the date when/if it ever gets published.
And I'm sticking with my claim to the record...the sandlanders' claim is inconsequential. "Trivial challenges will not take precedence over the 'real thing'"...I found that in my rule book Cool

Date of publication not date of submission. Is that what you all think, to? There's a puzzle master who is seldom seen in these parts up here but has several spots "saved" and when they publish, it's not uncommon to see a date 1-2 yrs different.
