+Haggis Hunter Posted July 23, 2010 Share Posted July 23, 2010 I don't wish to go into the rights and wrongs of how caches are reviewed or how the reviewers do their jobs. I do feel that people should be aware of what appears to be another new rule which has been implemented. I changed the co-ords the other day for Athens of the North. A cache which would have been 8 years old in 3 days time and has had 863 finds. This cache was one of my earliest finds and I adopted it a while back. After changing the co-ords, a reviewer disabled it and also sent me an email stating that due to the co-ords being changed it's new location was being checked to ensure that it continues to comply with the current listing guidelines. It turns out the cache is placed in an SSSI. Which means proof has now to be given that it has permission. Never mind that for the last 8 years it's been in an SSSI and never been a problem. Well it turns out cache placement was a lot more relaxed back then. So myself and the original owner has decided that the cache has had to go. So the moral of the story is - think hard before you relocate your caches, as you are being watched! Note to the moderators, please close this thread at the first sign of desultory comments that are aimed at the reviewers, as this was most certainly not my intention of this thread.
