I assume you're using routes that take you outside your home circle? The bugs won't move if you're not.

If you're sure that you are and they're still not moving then it sounds like there's a problem in the system somewhere that Fetch needs to know about.

Not only outside your home circle, you've also got to move it a mile.

The guide says it doesn't matter if you go over them on the way out or the way back, they will still be squished if you go over them and meet the required criteria.

As long as you run outside your home circle bugs will also be move outside no matter when you cross them. If bugs are transported for a mile (straight line between points) then they will disappear otherwise they will still be active although you will no longer have any points deducted as they are outside you home circle, if you do not go outside your home circle bugs will not move. A word of warning if you have a Fetchie neighbour you could relocate all your bugs on to them :-( however you may get them back plus your neighbours as well so have even more to clear ;-)

For important updates on the rules, please make sure you're a member of the game group. Signing up to play the game will automatically add you to the group.

If you have a problem - usually it's a marker that you believe you hit, but hasn't moved, please send me feedback detailing the problem, making sure you:

1) be specific about where the marker is (an ID would be handy, but failing that, a decent description of its location may well be enough).
2) let me know the date and time of the run
3) don't report the marker. If it gets removed, I can't check it.
4) be quick. Some markers move on, e.g. daily Garmin moves, or bugs/relays getting transported on by other runners.
5) remain calm. You just did running. That's a good thing, right?

I may not get to all reports in time, but if enough of you do report problems, it gives me data to find the causes of the problems.
