I find that they do tend to review around this time of day. Be certain that your cache page has been checked as active or the reviewers will not see it

And remember that they are volunteers and do have lives other than geocaching.

Be sure to check the cache page to see if the reviewer left a note. There may be an issue.

They get to them when they can...they also read these boards (on occasion).

If you feel an inordinate amount of time has past and your cache still hasn't listed (several days) drop one of the reviewers a note and inquire....politely. Sometimes they need to do a little extra checking on some listings....or gasp, have other more pressing commitments in real life that require dealing with.

Glad your cache is up.

I don't mean to be be rude here but did you remember to enable it? I did that once or twice where I was waiting and waiting and then realized that I had forgotten to check the box to enable the listing.

Well I know it is hard to wait, very hard! But our WI reviewers are awesome and I'm sure that they'll get to it as soon as they can.

145 feet from a railway? That's borderline publishable if the rail is still active.

1.3. Inappropriate or Non-publishable Placements

This page is an extension of our Geocache Listing Requirements / Guidelines.

If your cache is reported by the land owner or land manager as being an unwanted intrusion, Groundspeak will respect their wishes, support their request and take action.
Additional regulations and laws that apply only to your country and region may further restrict cache placement. Some park systems also have specific geocaching rules. Local geocaching organizations or your local reviewer are often able to provide information on regional requirements.
A cache may be disabled or archived if (list is not exhaustive) one or more of the following is true. If your cache is located within one of the areas listed below and you have complied with special regulations by obtaining written permission or a permit, please explain this in a "Note to Reviewer."
Placement does not meet all guidelines.
Cache placement is in an area that is highly sensitive to additional foot and vehicular traffic including but not limited to archaeological sites, historical sites and cemeteries.
Cache defaces or destroys property (public or private) either in the hiding of or searching for the cache.
Cache is near active railroad tracks. In the United States we generally use a distance of 150 ft (46 m) from tracks. Other local laws may vary.
Cache is problematic due to its proximity to a public structure including and not limited to highway bridges, dams, government buildings, military bases, schools, hospitals, airports and other such locations.
The Review Process outlines steps to take if your geocache has been placed on hold, temporarily disabled or archived.


That's not to say this is a problem...just one possibility...or the reviewers just haven't gotten around to your listing yet. They will contact you if there is a problem.
