+dartymoor Posted September 23, 2012 Share Posted September 23, 2012 This is a subject that's come up in a local forum and I would appreciate a wider input. Many cachers will replace logs and dry out caches, even replace containers when they encounter ones in need. I've done this myself and continue to do it (and as a CO myself, I'm always grateful for those who do it on mine!) - but I'm wondering if it's always a good idea? Yes - it'll save a CO a long trip for maintenance, but if the CO has abandoned the cache is it good to artificially keep a cache going that is unloved by its owner, or the owner has given up caching and will neither fix nor remove the cache. My current thinking is to just do it for CO's I know and are active, and not to for people who own few caches or who have been inactive or who have a low find count (Sorry to generalise, but most abandoned caches seem to be from the <150/200 group). I'll raise a NM and follow with a NA if not attended to, to create space for another new and loved cache that will generate new interest from local cachers who have either found the original or not gone there for a reason. But is my thinking right? What do others do who've faced this dilemma? Quote Link to comment
