Hi PC Medic & Scout, thanks for the comments.
Would it be possible Navicache provide a real contact email address in the decline message? I've never been able to correspond with that address. It seems to be output-only. In the future I'll use the "Contact Us" tab instead of burdening the forums with this type of question.
Also please note that I did not post "Puzzle caches are no longer accepted on Navicache" as the title. I invite you to please re-check the title. My title is a question.
I reiterate my question here: If Bogus coordinates are not permitted, how is it that Puzzle caches are allowed? If you post the real coordinates, there's no need to solve the puzzle! In this case, I've posted coordinates that are in a lake in the general vicinity (within the same park) of the actual container, to prevent people (who don't have the printout) from trashing a random area of ground. Perhaps the word "bogus" is not accurate, however this is the exact word that is used on geocaching.com and by many other players of the sport (at least here in Austin TX) to describe coordinates that do not point to the container in a puzzle cache. In other puzzle caches I've posted coords for a parking lot for the park the cache is in.
PC Medic, the image "in Japanese or Chinese text" that you refer to is the puzzle. Is Navicache.com determining the appropriateness of puzzles that are used to compute the coordinates on puzzle caches? If you would like for me to supply Navicache.com with the solution to the puzzle so that you folks may determine if the cache is acceptable for posting on your site that can be arranged.
In the future, I will include a note to the reviewer on my cache postings which provide a step-by-step solution to the puzzle, an indication of how the posted coordinates are related to the location of the actual cache, and I will refrain from using the word "bogus" in my descriptions of the posted coordinates.
PC Medic, I'm emailing you the solution now in a separate message.
