I want to retire one of my listed caches but there is no option to mark it "retired".

If I open the "My caches" list and then a cache description I didn't get any "Edit" page...

Where can I do changes to my caches?!

That was pretty slick of those spammers, eh? Considering the amount of spam we get over at the Opencaching.us forums, I can't believe this place is not totally overrun with spam. And we do have a Captcha when creating an account, so our spammers (almost all from China) are cheap human labor, not bots. Our blog was being overrun by comment spam, but we put on a Captcha, and haven't had a single spam comment since. So that was obviously all bots.

Hey, nothing else going on in these forums for months, might as well talk spam.  :D

Oh, this is Mr. Yuck speaking, I never bothered changing from WhiteUrkel to Mr. Yuck here, which I did everywhere else in 2009 or so.

Ya, it's surprising that the amount of spam is relatively minimal considering how old the forum software is here.

Took me forever to find the hidden edit cache link.

When I finally did, I noticed a "retire cache" link.  Clicking it gave me this:
Quote
The File or page located at /cgi-bin/db/RetireCache.pl?CacheID=5060&Retire=1 Was not found on www.navicache.com Sorry, the file you were looking for could not be found. It may have moved to a new location. Please use the navigation to the left to help you locate the file. You can also search for a file by using the Search Page at this site. click the link below: to return to the referring page Click Here


I ended up editing the cache and clicking the retire radiobutton instead.

I just tested it and I get the same thing.  I've always used the radio button and had never tried that link before.
