Nope, it didn't get missed. When it gets busy, multi-caches and puzzle-caches tend to take a back seat to traditional caches, simply because of the time it takes to approve them.

Historically there has been *many* more problems with multi-caches and mystery caches from a reviewers / publishing point of view. I can often publish a dozen regular caches in the time it takes to publish one mystery cache with problems.

Fear not, it didn't get forgotten, just hang tight.

Just re-read my previous post, figure I should clarify...

I haven't looked at Forefeather's mystery cache yet, but in all likelyhood it is just fine.

I have just seen my share of mystery caches that required some extra attention by the admin in order to publish.

No problem with the wait. It doesn't take much looking around at the site to realize that reviewing caches must take up a bunch of time- and volunteer time at that. This one has math puzzles that would drive me crazy (my son and wife put this together). I never thought to provide solutions to speed up checking through the cache. We'll do so in a couple of hours. (I'm the only one up this early and I have no clue how to solve some of 'em). Image
Thanks to the reviewers for all their work!
Oh, and yes- I've seen a ton of the "server too busy" screens. Both logging finds and trying to input caches. And when it goes you lose everything you've done (I'm with Zuma= copy and paste from something that doesn't go 'poof'}.


Later edit: Okay- have added solutions to make the review easier. Thanks again!

Seems to be "hit or miss" sometimes. This morning, it was dead. I tried five minutes later, and got on quickly, and downloaded some caches with no problem. A half hour later, I checked again, and it was dead again. Can't blame it on Buxley's either.

Believe-you-me, if I had to solve all of the mystery caches before publishing them, I would still be wroking on caches from October of last year.

I don't require that the complete solution to a mystery-cache be included, just all of the waypoints and enough information to prove that it is a solvable puzzle.
