    Ha Ha Ha! The Serious Tool hasn't changed.
    On another note. Who, in this State, has the highest percentage of caches placed in comparison to caches found? I seem to run at around 10% .....since I started caching! I find my self placing one for every ten I find. I was backing off a bit; then the Central Maine Power Run came along.

    I will answer that tomorrow when the new cache(s) are out. They will be around 30 percent!

    Who found one or two and then ran out to hide one or more. Some of these guys were 50%, 100% and I think there was one guy who found 1 and hid 3 for 300%.

    Let us say one needs at least 50 hides to be eligible.

    There are a few accounts with 50+ hides which are around 30%, but there is one account that stands out at several hundred percent. When I started caching, there was someone who had over 20 hides, 6% of all the caches in the state at the time in fact, yet he only had a small handful of finds, several of which were on his own caches.

    I think a person can hide too many caches, but that number does vary depending on the person. but I also feel there is little use of comparison between the number of hides vs. finds (outside of sheer curiosity that is, just like many of the numbers on the Maine stats page). There used to be a lot of talk in the national forums comparing one's find count to their forum post count, suggesting those who posted more than their found count needed to get out more!

    How do you figure a percentage for someone that has never found a cache but has placed two? One just came out yesterday (GC2BE5Y, Pot o gold) and the placer has never found a cache. Not sure how they even know what a cache is. I'd be interested in looking for it just to see what they came up with. Perhaps it's a new car.
