Lorgadh: One of my roles as a reviewer is to monitor my region for caches that have been disabled for a long time, have had a reasonable number of DNFs or appear to require some maintenance. This is done through running a query on a database of all the caches in my region that looks for such things or by cachers submitting Needs Archiving logs as it appears maintenance may not be being carried out by the CO.
I notice that this cache appears to be in need of maintenance. May I ask that the owner reads the logs and checks the cache to sort out any problems with it or gives an indication of when it may be up and running again for people to find. Please Log your visit and write an Owner Maintenance log with the information. The Owner maintenance log will also remove the Needs maintenance attribute (red cross) if that is showing on the cache page. Once the cache has been sorted out you can enable it again. If the cache cannot be fixed it should be archived. If there is no response to this log after 30 days I may archive the cache, in the meantime I am disabling it.
Of course if the CO has visited the cache recently then please post an Owner Maintenance log indicating that they have done so, enable the listing, and all should be fine.
This isn't a requirement to fix the cache immediately but if it's unlikely to be done within 30 days could the CO post a note to the cache page giving an indication of when the maintenance will be done, or an indication of why it cannot be carried out.
By all means send a mail to me through my profile, quoting the cache name and GC code, but please also post a note to the cache page. Emails to me may be missed or go astray and it would be a shame to archive the listing due to missing correspondence.
Guidelines: "You are responsible for occasional visits to your cache to maintain proper working order, especially when someone reports a problem with the cache (missing, damaged, wet, etc.). You may temporarily disable your cache to let others know not to search for it until you have a chance to fix the problem. This feature is to allow you a reasonable amount of time - normally a few weeks - in which to check on your cache. If a cache is not being maintained, or has been temporarily disabled for an unreasonable length of time, we may archive the listing."
Sadly if there is no response to this log after 30 days I may have to archive the cache.
Please note that the guidelines say that if a cache is archived by a reviewer or GeocachingHQ staff for lack of maintenance it will not be unarchived - Unarchiving a Geocache

Use this space to describe your geocache location, container, and how it's hidden to your reviewer. If you've made changes, tell the reviewer what changes you made. The more they know, the easier it is for them to publish your geocache. This note will not be visible to the public when your geocache is published.
