1.8. Working with the Reviewer: Communication
Before your geocache is published
Each geocache is reviewed by a community volunteer reviewer before publication. Sometimes, your geocache is published just as you submitted it. At other times, the reviewer may have questions or suggestions for you. Pay attention to the messages from the reviewer, visible at the bottom of the cache page. These notes become part of the logs on your cache page. Reviewer Notes are automatically hidden when the geocache is published, so that the general public does not see them. To respond to the reviewer's questions, write a new Reviewer Note (rather than editing a previous note). If the cache is Disabled, you must enable the cache again so the reviewer can see your response.
To log a Reviewer Note, look at the upper right of the geocache page:
1. Log your visit
2. Post a Reviewer Note
3. Submit Log Entry
After your geocache is published
Please note that after the geocache is published, the reviewer will no longer check your cache page for Reviewer Notes and won't see a note you leave for them. The exception is if your reviewer posts a note on your cache page because of a concern with the cache and asks you to respond with a note on your cache page. If they do this, they will be monitoring the page for a response and will see it. Otherwise, if you need to contact your reviewer after your geocache is published, or for something unrelated to getting your geocache published, you can email them from their profile page.
Emailing a community volunteer reviewer
You can email reviewers through the website even if you do not have their email address. Just click on their username to go to their Profile Page. On their profile page, you'll see a link to send an email. Please note, most reviewers prefer to be contacted via email rather than the Message Center.
