Does anyone know how to find out who is 'watching' your cache? I am always curious.

hey rock, it looks like you beat me to one of the four caches i hit today. this came one day after i hit your new cache in minnetonka.

anyway, regarding the watch lists, i'm not sure if you can find out or not. what i do know, i watch every cache i hit (since i haven't hit that many yet.) i like to read about people who find a cache after i do and see what they take. i don't leave a lot of fancy stuff, but i leave some decent things, so i like to see if somebody takes what i leave.

the drawback, when i get an e-mail telling me of a watched cache log update, too often it's a note from somebody who is dropping off a travel bug, or worse yet, heading out to a cache to swap or take a bug.

This was recently asked on the geocaching.com forums. It seems that the only way to find out is to log a note on your cache page asking those who are watching it to email you, and then hope that they do.

I thought that would have been asked already, and I was right. I've been to the geocaching.com forums before and there seems to be an endless amount of information. I wouldn't have the foggiest idea where to start looking. Thanks Moe for the idea.

I asked that same question of the Geocaching.com system operator. His reply was that there is currently no automatic way to determine who is watching. The solution in an earlier post seems to be the only method at this time.

the geocaching FAQ page also addresses this and says that as this time you are unable to determine who is watching the page.
