I just clicked on the Newest Caches pages. It says it is sorted by newest first, but the top of the list is one listed August 2007. Further down the page were some from this month.

That could be discouraging to a newbie to the site, like me, who could think no one has planted a new Navicache for that long a time.

You are confusing newest cache with newest cache submission.
Note that at the top of the page it actually reads ...

"In order posted to NaviCache - most recent first"

We encourage cross-posting of caches. Often (as in the case of those you mention) the cache may have been listed previously on another site for some time and just recently submitted to our database. For this reason we made the decision to list them based on submission date rather than date the cache was actually hidden.  It is after all not a NEW cache. Also members may have already logged the cache on another listing site and may never see that it was now also available to be logged here if they were sorted in date placed order.

Hope that helps with the confusion.

Okay, that makes sense. Maybe you could put both dates there though. Because like I say, somebody could see that and think "Dang, this place is dead, I'm outta here."

You will see that now that we are doing duel caches and putting our caches here from another site.I think our cache reviewers here will be a little busy with the caches crossing for a while. USA 45[B]

I have a question. Is there some way to also list the owners name on the listing? I know that I for one get familiar with cachers this way. Just a thought? MW:)

This was discussed in the past and we decided against it to reduce clutter. Not to say we never revisit ideas though so I will put it in the suggestions box.

Perhaps you can have two sort options for NEWEST.

1) Newest Cache (Date of Cache)

2) Newest Posted Caches (Date Posted to NaviCache)
