Adopting an archived cache

Followers 1

Recommended Posts

Groundspeak's policy is they will not un-archive caches for adoption purposes.


However, I've seen VERY old caches in other countries get unarchived and adopted



I've had an enquiry about one of my caches that is now archived - http://coord.info/GCTVR0. They would like to reinstate and adopt it. Is this possible?


Now you've bought it to the attention of everyone, the answer will probably be a NO.


You should have just quietly asked a friendly reviewer to unarchive it first and then see about adopting it out :unsure:

Simple answer is no, we'd not unarchive this one so it can be adopted over to a new owner. The article in the Knowledge Books (quoted above) is what we go by. Saying that it has been done in the past with particular caches. That would require approval from Groundspeak.
