I don't know if this feature is implemented yet or not, but here is what Jeremy posted regarding how Member Only caches will help control plundering:
The other issue, that I haven't addressed on the subscription page, is that some folks have become targets by anonymous troublemakers that like to destroy individual's caches. Subscription only caches will allow you to audit your cache to see who looked at your cache page and when. In addition, a certain amount of anonymity goes away when you subscribe, so troublemakers will either not bother subscribing or be scared to subscribe since they are no longer anonymous.

Some pretty crazy ideas here. Interesting!

Ken and Robin, I am not that far from your river cache in the whole scheme of things. I can't say I know any rules for how you rate a cache. But if you don't have a boat and don't have friends who have a boat -- so would have to go beg people you don't really like (LOL!) or go rent a boat -- it makes it tough. And I don't swim either. Live 40 minutes from the Mississippi and have probably been boating three times max in my lifetime. (For area canoeing, I stand at 4x max......)

So I just thought I would relate that yes, that cache might be deserving of a higher rating.

I have mt. biked from Iowa to the main channel of the Miss. south of McGregor/Prairie du Chien... but it always gives me the willies to get out on that ice. Unless it's been -10 for pretty much the whole month before I go.

Had debated walking ice to try that cache near New Albin. But then I looked at maps and saw a pretty wide channel. And especially with the way it is this (NON)winter, I thought "nope!"
