  10. I agree that there is no function to tell when is too long, just that there are quite a few around here like:

    This one...


    Last found...March 17, 2002!


    Since an email to admin will bring the cache back online, it seems courteous to archive them if it's too long between going inactive and today!

  11. In th' spirit o' Trash ou'...how 'bouts thems with "old" currently unavailable caches harchive them...it's 10% of the space on my nearest.

    You can re-activate an archived cache with an email, so it's not like you lose it forever, but really...if it's not reactivated within 3 months...ok 6 months.

    Maybe if the Trash is out, someone else will put a cache in!!


    Just my eighth of a doubloon worth!
