The following tags has been disabled because they seem to reference geocaches that does not look like challenge caches. According to official guidelines a challenge cache must contain the word challenge and be listed as a Mystery/Puzzle geocache type.

  1. Challenge geocaches must contain the word "challenge" in the geocache name.
  2. Challenge geocaches are listed as the Mystery/Puzzle geocache type.

Is this an automatic process? Because the caches are definately challenge caches, even though the word "challenge" was missing. (they both had "challenging" instead). If I re-enable them will they just get disabled again?

I could try talking to the owner about changing his cache names...

If they are from after 2010 (if i remeber correctly) they are incorrect because challenge is required to be in the name. Technically they are a myst with Traditional logging requirements and that is not allowed and can be ignored. You are allowed to log them as find if you have signed the log. But i would not do that because that would not be very popular.
I suspect they will be autodisabled. I suggest to ask the owner to change the name to follow the listing requirement. (That is if they are newer than that rule else the name is ok)

Yes, this is an automatic process which runs once per day. We have a handful of exception and I will add these to the exception list. It should not happen again.
