New caches will not be published while there are orders limiting outdoor activities to essential.
When will my Geocache be published?
In Arizona, we have 2 Volunteers who review and publish geocaches. We strive to begin review of geocaches within 7 days. Typically, it is much sooner. If some of your geocaches are published by one reviewer and some are still unpublished, please be patient. The other reviewer will get to them as schedules permit. If for some reason one reviewer gets behind, it is possible that another reviewer will help out.
We ask all cache hiders to provide basic information in a Reviewer Note about their cache. In your private response to me, please describe your cache container in detail, as well as how and where your cache is hidden and how a visiting geocacher finds and retrieves the cache. If your cache is attached to anything, please describe the attachment method. Be specific about how the cache is hidden. And please do not say something like "The same as the rest". Each cache page needs it's own description.
Some examples: pill bottle in a hole in the tree in 'Name of City park', hide-a-key on guardrail on 'Name of Road', in water, retrieved by pulling up line from Name of Park fishing pier, a keyholder magnetically attached to a lamp post in commercial parking lot.
Please be specific about what the container is and the size. Just saying a "plastic container" or a 'Metal box" is incomplete. Is it a tupperware container, a film canister, a camoed pill bottle on guard rail, a 5 gallon bucket, or a pipe resembling a stick of dynamite? We want to know in case there is some question in the future by Law Enforcement or a property owner.
If you need to include a picture, please upload the image to a Reviewer Note. When the cache is publishes, the image will be archived and not visible to the public.
If the cache owner intends to keep the cache in the game, they should:
A Reviewer may Archive the cache if the cache owner has not posted an update within 14 days.
e.g. "There have been a few DNFs, however it is a clever hide! I checked on it this morning. Check the hint!"
The number of "false positives" flagged with this process are minimal compared to the number of abandoned caches that this process will remove from the game.
An event must be a minimum of 50 kilometers distance or 5 hours before or after another event. This is a regional rule to prevent event stacking. A registered series of events can also be rejected as unique events, even if the distance is over 50 km, if it is essentially the same group traveling from event to event. The intention of an event is to be central; a social gathering for and with geocachers.
