I'm a newb to the LCG

Wondering if I revisit a cache that hasn't been found in over 1 year, do I get double revisit points?

Yesterday I just learned the hard way that once someone else does the revisit, it can't be done again unless there is a DNF after the first revisit.

I even read the rules after a friend pointed this out to me.

Thanks,
Joe

I don't believe that revisits are double after more than 1 year. But your right... only 1 cacher can get the revisit points.

That is one clarification that will be made in the rules regarding revisits.

Revisits do not gain the double/triple point bonus regardless of when the cache was last found. Also the cache can only be revisited once unless as noted, there is/are subsequent DNFs posted.

So let's say it gets on LCG list 3/1/13, someone finds it 3/2/13 LCG player or not, can a revisit still be made or is it trumped?

Trumped. The revisit no longer serves a useful purpose, as it is now 'known' that the cache is still present and playable. This is the same reasoning for 'no Revisit after a Revisit.'

From the given rules:

5. How to score points! There are five primary ways to score points for a lonely cache.
. . .

b. You find a cache that you have found before and confirm its location and condition in a note on the cache page. If it is a multi, you must confirm the condition of all stages. See rule clarification d in section 12 . . .

12. Rule Clarifications
. . .
d. A cache cannot be confirmed (either way) after a find, a confirmation note, an enable note, or an owner maintenance visit log is posted during the 2 month period, unless there is a subsequent DNF. If the last log on a cache is an confirmation note, it cannot be confirmed again, regardless of how long ago it was found.
