Unreviewed Geocache hide after 7 days

Recommended Posts

Hi there, 

I hid and submitted a geocache for review a week ago and as of yet it is still 'unpublished' and 'submitted for review'. I haven't missed any emails regarding this geocache hide and in the past I have had caches reviewed in a matter of days (even though the expected time of review is 7 days). 

Is there any way to see if I have made an error or if the review process just delayed? 

Cheers

It takes time - sometimes it's a few days, sometimes it's upwards of a month.

What have your email notifications said about the cache you submitted? Have you heard anything?

Your cache was correctly submitted and is awaiting review.  There are no notes yet from the Reviewer.  Thanks for your patience!

Thankyou for your replies. Feeling a lot more secure in the knowledge that I haven't seemingly messed something up. 😅

No further notifications other than to say that it was submitted for review. 

It seems it may just take more time than I was expecting but that's no issue. 😊

You are correct in that the aim to review caches is within seven days of being submitted, but that doesn't mean they'll be published within that time frame. Seven days is just the goal to have a reviewer take a look at the listing. If there is an issue with the listing or the listing warrants more scrutiny, those caches usually take longer to be published. A more complicated listing will get put off to the side so the reviewer can publish the submissions that are easy to push through (to help clear out the queue) and then circle back to your listing and give it more attention. 

 

Also, many people were able to come out from under stay at home orders in June, so your reviewer may be facing an onslaught of new submissions to work through.

Mine have been reviewed between 30 seconds and 30 days. And that was pre-corona.
