I use Profile > Solved mysteries for managing my mystery caches, but I have noticed that it displays a lot of archived caches. As they are usually archived because the cache is no longer there, I deleted the cache note and corrected coordinates then ran self-support a few days later, then checked the list a few days after that. Alas, self support does not remove mysteries that have no corrected coordinates and no cache note from the list of solved mysteries.

Could you please make self support dump the solved mysteries then re-read them (probably the cleanest solution), or provide another way to manually delete them (especially unfound, archived mysteries, which I can never find)

The cache notes will be removed every 24h by itself. They get a complete refresh everytime we look into them. That's the only way to retrieve them through the API, all or nothing. Building a GPX file and checking the "refresh corrected" will also trigger this.

The corrected coordinates is harder though. But as you suggest, we could add a way for it in the self-support sytem. And if we do, we can very well refresh the cache notes at the same time.

We will keep this under consideration for sure.
