line threw geocaching

Check the logs for the cache in question. There should be a note by the cache owner or reviewer explaining the reason for the cache being disabled or archived.

 

There are also notes in red at the top of the cache page explaining the status, and the logs will give the details needed to explain the situation.

It means that there are problems with the cache and the cache owner has disabled it, hopefully only until he repairs it. It may be enabled after the CO has had a look at it.

However, if the cache name has a line through it AND is in red, it means the cache has been archived (not to return again).

You will only see the red line for caches you have already found. If a cache has been archived you will not see it in any search pages or maps.

Partially true. The only time you will see archived caches is 1) if you are looking on a list of caches found by a particular cacher (most often yourself), 2) if you search for that particular cache by waypoint, or 3) if you are looking a bookmark list. Any other method of searching automatically eliminates archived caches from the search.

OK, good answers, but the overlooked part is that you can STILL LOG the cache as found!

If the owner disabled the cache thinking it was MIA or needed repair, your find log will let him or her know it's still there and you could indicate the cache's general condition in your log.

Yep we overlooked that part, but since it wasn't found it didn't really seem relevant. Good point though. :P
