Temporary Disabled caches in United Kingdom and Ireland Posted November 26, 2007 Some of them have logs from the moderaters asking the owner to archive or reactivate but if you set a cache to 'Temporary Disabled' and after say 2 months it's still disabled shouldn't there be an automatic process that just archives them. Possibly, but until there's such a process the reviewers will need to rely on cachers to inform us If there was a process which did archive automatically it might gee the owner up a bit to go and do something! Unfortunately I don't think an automatic process can take into account all the circumstances involved and I for one wouldn't like the idea of caches being archived automatically. I think the thing that really bugs me is that there are caches out there that have been 'Temporarily Disabled' for 2 months and longer but the owner still finds the time to go out caching every weekend..........what does that tell you! As far as I'm concerned if you place a cache then you take on the responsibility and obligation to maintain it both physically and virtually. There are a multitude of reasons why a cache may be temporarily disabled for months, such as difficulty or time to get hold of the right cache container, access problems to the cache site, a difficult cache location (eg top of a mountain) etc etc. As Renegade Knight has stated, as long as the cache owner is an active cacher and is keeping an eye on things and will eventually get round to fixing the problem, I'm happy to focus on all the other hundreds of caches that are out there Having said that, the onus is on us active cachers to alert the reviewers to those caches which appear to have foundered because the cacher is no longer taking an interest in caching in general.
