Extend Corrected Coordinates Use

It would seem this would not be necessary across the board, but having this function available on all cache types would sure help when another cacher posts updated coordinate and the CO never updates the coords on the cache page. The coords change could be due to bad initial coords, cache location shift, or any number of other causes, but being able to update the coords would be very helpful.

I'm not sure what you're asking for here. The "correct these coordinates" link (with the pencil icon) does not change the published coordinates of the cache. It only changes them for the user that "corrected" the coordinates. In order to change the published coordinates, a cache owner can post an "update coordinates" log for any cache that they own, and only a cache owner (or a reviewer) should be able to do that. Others can add a "add a coordinate to this log" by checking a box when they log the cache and a cache owner might use that information to post a "update coordinates".

 

I assume that you want to be able to use the "correct these coordinates" on a traditional cache in the case that a cache owner has not updated them to reflect the actual location. In that case, a Needs Maintenance log should be posted. If someone can just "correct the coordinates" on any cache (based on the coordinates someone else included in their log) the might find that easier than posting a NM, but the CO *does* have the responsibility for keeping the cache page accurate, and I've seen caches archived when that didn't happen.
