'find bad logs' - logged own caches not reflective [closed]

+1 vote
Is it possible to show how many of the caches as shown in the 'Logged owned caches' list that are adopted
I had a clean sheet in the find bad logs tab - but adopted a cache a while ago and as it was one that I had found some 13 years earlier now shows up in that category of logged owned caches. Though I know I have adopted it - anyone else looking at this tab would have to click on the cache ID to check and even then not all adopted caches have enough detail on the cache page to show it is adopted - you find out by clicking CO details or scroll down the logs.

Most would think - really why would another cacher do any of that anyway ? .... it happens - I have even checked other cacher stats myself

However my point is would it be possible to have some sort of marker next to those caches that are adopted  in that list

No, there is no way to do that I would know about. The tool was really made for cachers to find bad log themselves (and they should remember caches they adopted).

Having a cache logged and adopted later is very common case and there is really nothing wrong about that.

Technically, everything is possible (by either detecting the adoption log or the adopted word in the "hidden by" field) so it might be accepted as a feature request, but I really see a very small value in doing this check. I believe there are more important features that is now being worked on.
As far as I know, there is no technical way to differentiate a cache that you originally created and a cache that you have adopted.
Thank you both
