That's a great way to put it!

As per my previous post, if they are allowed to be virtual then this gives people an opportunities to share good sights and monuments  :)

I would say they are like Opencaching.org virtuals, you just need to collect a code that allows you to log them :)

Yes, so why can't they just call them Virtual Caches  ::)

Have opencaching.org reacted to their sort-of-stolen idea?  :D

Not quite by the looks of it, as I clicked on walktall's made one and I can't see the details of it. I can see the details of the one I created myself.

At least the stats are storted out now, I think?

I've been away today, so not checked what changes have happened with lab caches but I see if I click on your Lab cache Griff, I just get the general page - what a load of twoddle :(

It is certainly a virtual - as it's virtually not there ::) ???

Here's the latest from GS about them:

Quote
Your Lab Cache finds are now more official than ever. Lab Caches are scheduled to be rolled into Geocaching find statistics and your milestones beginning on June 3, 2014. Besides cheering, there's one other thing you might want to consider doing.

The addition of your Lab Cache finds may alter your milestones. Check now to lock-in milestones on your Geocaching.com profile. After the update, you'll be able to use the tool to lock in a Lab Cache find as a milestone. You'll also find Lab Cache stats on your chronology and geocache types section. If you created a Lab Cache and it was logged, you'll find new stats on your owned geocaches page.

Thanks for finding a Lab Cache and helping to play a part in shaping the future of geocaching. 


Sincerely, Everyone at Geocaching HQ


I see Lab cache finds don't end up in your 'My Finds' PQ after this 3rd June update on them >:( >:( >:(
