Change from Traditional to LetterBox cache

Recommended Posts

I have a traditional cache with a Ladybug theme.

I found a lady bug rubber stamp, and I want to change the cache type to Letterbox hybrid.

Do I have to request permission, or just change it myself?

Only way to do it is Archive the present cache and submit a new cache as a Letterbox hybrid.

 

You could submit the new cache, and explain to the reviewer what you are doing, and get the old cache archived as the new one is published.

If you need to change the coordinates beyond 0.1 miles (528 feet or 161 m), or change the type of cache, please contact your local reviewer. The reviewer will check the changes for adherence to the current guidelines and notify you when the changes have been made, or suggest that a new cache listing should be submitted. Please be sure to follow any instructions the reviewer may send you.

 

There is a link to the profile page of the reviewer that reviewed your cache listing in the bottom of your cache page (you must be logged in). If you email a reviewer and do not receive a reply within one week, the reviewer account may be inactive and you will need to contact us at Groundspeak.

contact@geocaching.com

 

When you contact the reviewer or Groundspeak please provide the cache name and GC Code for the listing.

Depend...I see it done here as a multi was changed to a traditional.

 

Archived the cache and post a new type is the fastest way to get the job done.

Excellent responses; thanks to all.

 

Again I'm impressed with the depth and scope of knowledge on this board, not to mention the sense of helpfulness.

Thanks.

I always appreciate when LetterBox Hybrids are set up more like an old style letterboxing hide (where you start at one point and provide directions that lead you to the container) and not just a Traditional with a stamp at the posted coordinates.

 

Creating a cache with directions leading to the cache, in my opinion, separates the Letterbox type from a Traditional type and preserves the original intent and style.
