Temporarily disabled cache

A temporarily disabled cache is a geocache which for some reason is unavailable to finders.

How long can a cache remain disabled?

Caches should be unavailable for as little time as possible. For geocaching.com listed caches, a reviewer can disable a cache when they consider it has been disabled too long. This is usually a last resort and taken after months, not days or weeks, have passed with inaction by the cache owner.

If a geocaching.com cache has been temporarily disabled for a long period of time, it can be brought to a reviewers attention with a "Needs archiving" log. This log type does feed through automtically to reviewers, and owners, and they will take action if appropriate.

Geocaching Australia caches do not have reviewers and it is up to the owner to take any action on them.
