The hashclash (or just clash) is a concept where each of two graticules tries to reach more hashpoints (or execute more expeditions) than the other one does, during a given time span.

A hashclash should be a voluntary event. It is thus not a hashclash if a graticule is issued a challenge and either refuses or does not react. This is to prevent people from challenging graticules late in the month when they cannot catch up anymore, challenging graticules whose local geohashers are busy or away, or challenging graticules that have no local geohashers at all.

The concept originates from a conversation following a report in which Chris_47_8 boasted about how his graticule was going to win a most active graticule award for the active month. Zertrin then rallied his graticule to achieve more hashes before the month ended. The name "hashclash" was then brought up by Mampfred.

[edit] Past hashclashes

Clashes are listed only if they were accepted by both graticules involved.

[edit] Template

The following template may be used to mark a graticule being in a hashclash.

If it is used on a page that also contains an infobox template (most notably Template:Graticule or Template:Meetup), it should be included after the box template for better spacing.

{{User:Calamus/Hashclash

| who = name of graticule (optional)
| with = name of the other graticule (optional)
| time = the time period in question (optional)
| reached = true if category "coordinates reached" , omit parameter if category "total expeditions" (optional)
| fullwidth = true if the box should span the whole page, omit parameter to leave space for a Template:Graticule or Template:Meetup (optional)

}}

[edit] Example

You are free to side with one of the graticules and motivate it by cheering it on - or to demotivate the other one. Progress can be tracked here.
