    Default "Needs Maintenance" Attribute

    While playing around with the new attributes included in PQs I came across something. I may have known this before, but I too suffer from Ekidokai syndrome and it may have slipped my mind.

    When someone logs a "Needs Maintenance" log on your cache that cache is automatically branded with a "Needs Maintenance" attribute. That attribute will stick with your cache until you either log an "Owner Maintenance" log OR edit the cache attributes and remove it.
    My database lists about 419 active caches in Maine which have the needs maintenance attribute added to it. Only 47 of those are disabled. Many of them are caches hidden by regulars here and they are getting finds on a regular basis. I think a large percentage of them may be wrongly marked as needs maintenance with the cache owner not realizing it.

    So here is a list of active and available caches sorted by owner if you want to check your caches.

    Default Needs Maintenance

    Not Schooners R Us cache, GC1k91f. That had an issue in July and later in August and I replaced the cache. The "needs Maintenance" was several months ago.

    OK... I see three of mine in there, two of which have been delt with a while ago. The third I just havent had time to hike out and deal with it due to some issues at this time. A wet log isnt the end of the world. People have been logging it so its ok for now. I wonder how many more of those have been delt with?

    Where the hell is that thing?

    Whenever I get a "Needs Maintainence" icon, I'm not sure if it is a whiny complaint or just someone who really thinks they are helping. Because there is no way to distinguish between the two it makes it hard for a cache owner to determine if the cache is really in need of immediate attention. Personally, if I feel that someones' cache is in need of maintenence, I'll make the effort to pm the owner and describe with as much detail as I can why I think it needs attention. I've never used the "Needs Maintenence" tool because it means very little to me so I assume other cache owners feel the same way. Getting an email that says, "Needs Maintenence" because "log book is full" doesn't mean it needs maintenence; it needs a new log. The simple solution would be to add one. (I carry extra log books and log sheets for just that purpose.)

    As Evilhomer points out, a wet log is not in dire need of maintenence and a log entry that says it is wet would suffice instead of the "Needs Maintenence" icon which implies that the cache is not serviceable and needs immediate attention.

    I usually delete the "Needs Maintenence" entry by changing the attribute as quick as I notice them. I get emails from all finders who log so it is easy to figure out which ones truly need care or not.

    I just got a need maintenance log from someone who could not find a cache. I am sure it is there, but it raises a question. A needs maintenance should only be for a cache that needs maintenance and usually you can only tell that if you find it.
    I'd really rather not cache, but I am helpless in the grip of my compulsion!

    I agree, the needs maintenance should be used with scrutiny. Should it be used when a cache is in need of a log? It seems extreme, but it is part of regular maintenance. I don't think I have ever used it for just a log, however. It's amazing what some non-finders *know*, like knowing a cache isn't there, or knowing the coordinates are off!

    That's exactly what I am getting at. When the cache was logged as needing maintenance, it was given the attribute. You disabled the cache, fixed it, and enabled it, but because you didn't log a performed maintenance log (or edit the attributes to remove it) the attribute still is on the cache page. Go to the cache page and look at the attributes on the right side, you will see this:



    You'd think enabling a cache would reset it as well. I can't think of too many situations where a cache owner would enable a cache that needed more maintenance!

    I agree with GobLer and BRDad's comments. And I note that when I looked at a number of the caches that "needed" maintenance, a lot of the comments were from "inexperienced cachers" - noobs. I think the list was great to alert cache owners to possible problems, to resolve the REAL problems, and to delete the "Needs Maintenance" attribute if they feel there isn't really a problem problem. As long as nobody is mailing any travel bugs...

    (And I note that there are NO WhereRWe and RULost2? caches on the list!)

    Default Now I get it!

    I lost something in the translation. For those of you that also have Eikodkie moments, like me, all you have to do is go to you listing, click edit attributes, go to the "needs maintenance" attribute and click on the right hand circle and the red cross is gone!

    And I certainly agree with Dick about those too quick to suggest a problem because they couldn't find it. I still am amazed about the all too frequent problem of cache owners who don't do maintenance when it's clearly needed.

    Anyway, learned something new today so thanks brdad!

    I fixed those four listed. I forgot to reset the attributes, I think.

    Anyway thanks to the guy that posted this. I am sure I needed it.

    Thanks Brad or Steve or Dave or whoever.
