I have been looking at some caches on navicache that are also on geocaching.com but they are archived on geocaching.com.  How do you get them off navicache?

Keep in mind that just because it has been retired on Geocaching.com does not mean the cache is no longer active. In many cases the cache owner simply decided to no longer cross-list the cache.

With that said, the first step is to use the email icon next to the cache owners name on the cache listing page and send them an email to verify the cache status. If 'after' trying this you still get no results then you may use the Contact Us form and send us an email an d we will look into it.

I have a relevant question.
I  have a cache that is dual listed, both here & gc.com. I have archived it there because it is no longer available. How do I archive it here?

MW, I found the answer from PCMedic in another thread...

On the cache listing page select 'Edit Cache' from the menu at the top.
On the Edit page is an option to 'Retire' the cache listing, select YES and save your changes.

Searching the forums for 'retire' or 'archive' would turn up several answers including This One

Thanks.  I'd searched for "archive" and only found the two threads I'd already posted in.  Guess it's a case of knowing the local lingo.
