I have a suggestion, and a question;

First the question: áIs there a distance restriction for caches? áI know on GC it's .10th of a mile, which isn't too bad, and you wouldn't want the caches right next to each other.

Second: Can a temporary disable option be added? áI think there should be a difference between disabled and retired. áIf retired, I would think the area would be open for another cache, while a disabled listing would still be reserving the area for a bit. áThat way, retired cache listings could either not be loaded or deleted from programs such as GSAK or GPXSonar.

Anyone have any opinions on this?

We do not have a 'Distance' requirement. One of the main reasons is that several of the original Navicache team and founders were from upstate New York. There are several parks and wilderness areas that have nearrow (but very deep) gorges and river beds in them. In these areas you could have actually have two separate caches physically less than fifty feet apart, but would require in some cases a mile or more of travel to get from one to the other.

I will think a little on the second question about disabled vs retired, but not sure there is enough need for two separate options.

The fact that distance doesn't matter is good, but I still think it would serve a purpose to have the two seperate functions.  If I see a cache "diabled"  I will still keep my eye on it so when it comes back up.  But if I see it as retired, then I know I can disregard the listing or delete it from GSAK which I use to load my 60 csx.
