Well than maybe we should request that it be 'intentionally' changed to not do this wink

This discloses certain information about unpublished caches that a cache owner may not want made public.

Should I post a request on the website forum? Something like this is probably not likely to get picked apart as much as other requests that go out there. But maybe if I post it someone will speak up about why in the world this would be desired functionality the way it is!

That would be good, but it would be better if you complained directly by phone, email, etc.

Ok ... here's a solution ...

1. Open a new geo account, this makes you an unknown person.

2. Start a new cache as that new geoperson, but don't release it for approval (so it's a "photo dumping" cache) and attached a photo.

3. Reference that picture to the reviewers.


... How would us viewers find the picture ... we don't know what geocacher name to look for to find the picture attached to an unapproved cache.

...and now the reviewers have a cache floating in their queue permanently too. Not sure how they're going to like that.
