Well, you all answered one question I had been wondering and that was how big of an area does Prime Reviewer cover.  The state of Texas is pretty big so I guess I should be grateful that most of my caches published fairly quickly after I published them.  (As I wrote that sentence I laugh at myself since I have not done that many caches, even adding what we have hidden in Brandon's name).  I actually have had some post within a day but maybe it wasn't a busy season.  I can only imagine how long of a wait there was when people were posting all the series caches in areas like Waco. 

 

This shows me I will need to be extra patient when I go to post the ones I have planned for the next few weeks when I return.  BTW - how big of a series do you have to contact Prime Reviewer on?  I noticed they don't tend to respond to e-mails when you send them so I guess you just send information and hope they get it?

 

BTW - In my opinion it would be great to have a big series posted here in the Houston area.  Maybe if a bunch of us take on a certain number of them then it wouldn't be such a daunting task.  I can't imagine how many hours it would take to do them just with one or two people putting them out.

When I put CLAPS I (6/2010) out I e-mailed coords to ensure no issues before I submitted.  PR was very helpful in confirming all was well.   A month later I did the same on CLAPS III.  Nothing.  Submit.  Issue.  Since then I've e-mailed PR on several occasions, in advance, and never had a reply of any kind.  So just my $0.02, e-mailing ahead is worthless these days.  If you want them to all publish at once, say so in a reviewer note.  That works.  But trying to do in advance does not.

chefkimmo, there is now a "West Texas Reveiwer" that covers part of the state, but it still seems that PR covers the other 80%... or at least 80% of the population (and 80% of the new cache submissions).  Sure seems like a lot for one person.

My part of Florida gets caches posted some times same day if they are in before 3 PM.  Never more than a day after that.

When a few of us here  in the north country placed the Three Amigos' LHWP series it languished in the queue for quite a few days.  After a brief,  cordial e-mail exchange with PR, they were published the next day.  No point in going into detail, but there was a simple misunderstanding of what was to be published and when.   Could there be some sort of "confusion factor" which is delaying publication?  Just a thought.

Nope. 8 are out by the Anahuac Wildlife refuge, some are near Beach City, and the others here in Baytown. All standard BB fare(!). I went ahead and posted a reviewers note asking if there is something I can do to speed up the process.

I submitted one yesterday afternoon, and it was published last night.  Of course, it was just one cache (out on the Lone Star Trail:  GC4ER52).

Mine have all published within 3 days, except the Multi-madness series that took almost 2 weeks to publish.  The same thing happened with the Shuttle series of puzzles at JSC.  Basically, if you submit more that 3 or 4 caches at the same time, be prepared to wait.... and wait, and wait.  He has a bit of a disdain for series and tends to show it that way.  In the future, submit them 2 or 3 at a time spread out over several days.  Why do you think the new CLAPS caches are coming out so slowly???
