Re: [CentralTexasGeocachers] How long can/should a cache be disabled for?
- Yeah, Prime is on to that Ploy.... LOL
This is how you get on the 'bad boy' lists.
[Wayne had a cache that he actually fat-fingered coords ... did the correction and -- DUDE, it's going DOWN. Prime pulled the plug, and was a bit testy, treating the slip as intentional -- maybe because too many are????]
It IS frustrating to have to guess at puzzles you haven't solved or redirectors you've forgotten in multis.
But, the antisaturation rules, onerous as they are when it's YOUR cool cache placement that's being declined, is a reasonable caveat.
So ... is YOUR spot a hard set (of course you'll have to solve to puzzle to figure out where to move it)???

I think this was possible at one time, but don't they know somehow if you do that now?
Make your coords someplace,any place, legal for a cache then once approved update your cache with the coords you first had.

SHOCKING: 2010 Honda Civic for $1,732.09
SPECIAL REPORT: High ticket items are being auctioned for an incredible 90% off!
- I ended up also emailing the CO and asking if she would like me to adopt it since she has either moved or is no longer active/able... she replied and said yes, so looks like I am taking over her two remaining caches (from the same series). I wish I had been able to find them before taking them over, but glad that hers will continue on since they look much more interesting then the unimaginative magnet to the back of a fence pole I did lol...
