I saw this on the GC.com site, in their Knowledge base section: http://support.groundspeak.com/Suppo...d=15&nav=0,5,6
There is also an option for Maintenance required.
I think each situation is different...and each situation needs to be analyzed to determine what the best route to proceed is. Take for instance the B52...if I hadn't gone today to check on it, and someone tried to find it today and couldn't...I wouldn't want them to post a SBA note. I would appreciate a note saying "Hey, we tried to find it and couldn't, this is where we looked," or a Needs Maintenance note if they did find it but it was wet, etc. Either way, there is no way I'm going back in that road until spring!
The other suggestion was for a willing cacher to report caches in one thread. It was just an idea - and probably not a likely one; One of the main reasons I backed off from the cache rescue was that there was so many caches for one person to try to keep track of.
Sad to see a lot of older ones going lately. 11 of Maine's first 20 caches have mow been archived. But, we do not need the geolitter giving the game a bad name.
One thing that would help is if cache owners, when archiving a cache, state in the post that the cache has been removed (if they have removed it, of course).
Ya know, with all the caches that need a possible rescue, it's really cluttering up the "new posts" section of the forums, is there a way to make this some kinda sub category, so that all the threads show up as one new one instead of about 20???
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.
