i was gonna say no...but on second thought there is one

how about for those listings where CO's don't pick any attributes, instead of am empty space have a default one that says "can't be bothered to assign any"

It seems like the "not available at all times" attribute would be appropriate.

It doesn't. It says: "Not available at all times, so read the cache listing to find out why."

I would think the number of tide dependent caches is quite small.

I would like to see an historic location attribute.

Au contraire, there are thousands of kilometers around the world. There may not be caches on all of those shorelines, but there are a fair amount here on the pacific.
Remember, just a suggestion.

Not available 24/7 seems to have that covered very well - no need to make the attributes too specific. Then we would end up with too many to make sense.

True but what percentage of the small percentage of caches in tidal areas are are not findable because of the tide?

only works when the description actually says anything about any "restrictions"

just been to two caches recently, there are no attributes and the description says nothing at all about the fact that the area is protected and closed between november 15 and mar 21st due to bald eagles, in fact there is nothing useful in the description

That's exactly the problem of those persons. I really like the attitude not to read anything and then complain about the lack of information. Some people should better stay at home. Maybe a lawsuit against the tides might be an idea. :anicute:

Yes, sure! But that's the responsibility of the cache owner. If a person can't provide a proper listing with all the information required. I don't think a tide-attribute will help.
