Anyone know why my milestones aren't showing up on BCGA and why I'm not even ranked in the BC rankings? I just hit 900 last week.

My location does say Vancouver, BC in my gc.com profile.

The BC Rankings is pulled from the cacherstats website. It monitors certain caches to find cachers and their stats. If you haven't found one of those caches, you will not be on the list. There is information in the FAQ on their website on which caches are monitored and what you can do if you are not on the list. This list is also only updated twice a week.

Cacherstats

The BCGA website also monitors all the caches in BC but it takes about 4 days to go through all the caches, so it will pick up your milestone eventually.

Also we have the ability to manually add your milestone, so if anyone thinks one has been missed they can email us and we will update it.

Thanks for explaining how it works. I've emailed them to see if they can include me. I did find the monitored caches a while ago.

I'm now in the BC Rankings Very Happy

They responded to my email same day and have already updated the stats. I'm impressed.

We also monitor cachers we have determined are in BC (which is not always 100 accurate). It takes about 3.5 days to cycle through all cachers and update stats.

You did get picked up.
