Need-maintenance.svg Needs maintenance

A geocacher searching for the cache has encountered problems and believes that the cache owner should intervene.

Damaged cache (but findable)

The cache itself (container) exists, but is damaged somehow:

  • container damaged or destroyed
  • logbook is wet or otherwise damaged
  • the hiding place is damaged and can no longer properly hold the cache

Any information about the state of the cache on-site is helpful to the owner and other geocachers until cache is repaired.

Missing cache

The cache no longer exists because of on-site changes:

  • the hiding place no longer exists
  • the hiding place was changed by external forces (either nature or human)
  • the scenery has changed (i.e. building demolished, something new built instead, etc)

Any information about on-site changes is helpful to the owner and other geocachers until cache is replaced.

Who logs "Needs maintenance" ?

Any geocacher may log a "Needs maintenance": First time finder, a well argumented DNF, revisiting a previously found cache, etc.
