Challenges gehen in Rente

Gerade kam eine freundliche Email von GS:

Dear Geocacher,

In our effort to inspire outdoor play through Geocaching, we are often faced with decisions about what to focus on next, and what to focus on less. It is through these decisions that we explore opportunities to grow the global game of Geocaching.

Occasionally, during this process, we are faced with the reality that certain ideas don’t catch on as we had hoped. In these situations we owe it to ourselves and to you to make tough decisions about the future of every project and the resources to be applied to each. Sometimes, as a result, cool features must become casualties.

In this spirit, we have decided to retire Geocaching Challenges.

This means that, effective today, we have disabled the ability to create new Challenges. We have also removed the Challenges application from all mobile application stores. In approxim ately 7 days, we will be removing all traces of the Challenges functionality and related content from Geocaching.com.

On an office wall here at HQ is a sign that reads, „Let’s make better mistakes tomorrow.“ By accepting that we will sometimes get it wrong, we can allow ourselves to learn from and imagine new opportunities in the world of Geocaching. Our hope is we can take the lessons from Challenges and create better tools to guide you on your next adventure.

Sincerely,
Geocaching.com

Bleibt die Frage: Und was kommt jetzt?

Flattr this!

    Vielleicht wird der Fokus jetzt wieder mehr auf die allseits beliebten Powertrails gelegt um das Hobby noch schneller an die Wand zu fahren.

    Ich finde es super und weine den Challenge-Caches keine Träne hinterher.
