I havent' ever done it before so I am not sure how. I had to correct the final of a puzzle and rather than redo the puzzle I wanted to have the checker return the corrected coords. I think it will do this.

go to geocheck.org, log in, pick your cache, edit solution, change the message to include the correct coords. And/or you could add it as a child waypoint.

What's going on with geochecker.org? On all of our puzzles or that of any other, the image is gone and if you go directly to the website you get:
---------------
Forbidden
You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
------------
This is happening on three different computers both sat home and at the office.

This has happened before and it got the fixed the next day, so I guess we'll just wait and see.

I hope you are right. It would be a pain to have to re-do the geochecker in all the puzzles. I cheked Whois to find the name of the site's owner but it looks like the registrant and administrator is also the owner of the name servers. This could mean the bill didn't get paid!

Have you noticed? Geocheck.org is down again. Bummer.
