1.8. Working With the Reviewer: Communication

Each new 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. S/he will often provide you with instructions on how best to communicate. Sometimes, s/he prefers email. You can email people through the website even if you do not have their email address. Just click on their name to go to their Profile Page and you'll see a link to send a message.

Sometimes, s/he prefers that you use a Reviewer Note. 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 log a Reviewer Note, look at the Navigation section at the top of your geocache page:
1. Log your visit.
2. Post a Reviewer Note.
3. Submit that log entry.

Please note that once the geocache is published, owners can no longer communicate with the reviewer via Reviewer Notes. 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 (see above).
