New Cacher Ranking Options

A few updates have been made to the cacher ranking section.
  • The "Average Difficulty/Terrain" ranking now allows you to customize restraints on average difficulty, average terrain, and number of caches found.  For example, you can view cachers who have an average difficulty and terrain over 1.5 after finding 1000 caches.  Or you can change the view and see cachers with an average difficulty and terrain over 2.0 after finding 2500 caches.  This geocaching goal is defined in different ways by different events/caches, and now it's easier to keep track of it on the site.
  • The "Total US States" ranking now breaks ties by checking how many caches you found in your least cached in state.  For example, if cacher #1 has cached in all 50 states but only found 1 cache in some states and cacher #2 has cached in all 50 states and has found at least 5 caches in each state, then cacher #2 would be ranked above cacher #2.
  • The "Total Countries" ranking now also breaks ties in the same manner of the "Total US States" ranking.
We hope to add even more information and options to the Cacher Ranking section in the future.  If you have any requests or problems, please Contact Us!
