Adoption Tool Fail?

Recommended Posts

Noticed a long need for maintenance/DNF in logs and sent message to CO letting them know... and my reluctance to post NA if they were going to check up on it soon. Surprisingly (given their prolonged absence), the CO replied almost immediately that they weren't going to get to it, so NA would have to be ok. I offered to adopt (it's a good location, highlighting a good facility) and included how-to. In a few minutes they responded that they had just completed the process to adopt the cache to me. I have not received the usual notice via email - even after several hours wait - and when I enter the GC# in the adoption tool, it says I haven't been asked to adopt it.

 

Now what?

Have them Archive their Listing and submit a new one under your own account. If you like the history of the old Listing, you can put a link in your Description so that people can refer back to it. It's kind of fun to see the history of a beloved cache location.

Thank you, Touchstone. I had not thought of linking to the archived listing. Cool.

But, that's not a solution - it's only a work-around for this one case. The problem would still exist!

 

Wouldn't it be better if the mechanism was working?

That's a little strange. The CO can archive his own cache, an NA from a finder is not necessary. You might want to let the CO know that there is an Archive option on the cache page.

Very good point, and I thank you for it.

Unfortunately the CO has apparently tired of the whole process and ended communication. I will just post NA and move on.

 

Thanks to all for your thoughtful suggestions.

Update: One last appeal to try the adoption tool, with attention to username, was a success.

Thank you for your suggestions.

 

:D
