    Default Public annoucement of line changes

    In the face of the recent change of the Godzilla circuit being made into a T, should there be a public announcement (eg forums, Facebook etc) when a line change occurs at "tourist" caves that are a popular diving and training sites?

    Line Change Announcement:


    Yesterday the slack in the Connecticut Room was a little loose, so I double wrapped it around a rock in the center of the floor.


    Please let your friends, family and loved ones know, on the off chance that they don't dive every day and may not notice the change.

    Govern yourself appropriately?

    Something like this would be good for those of us who are not local and only make it over a few times a year. My question is what is the best means of actually getting this information out? On here? A specific page on Facebook people follow?

    Thanks for making your sarcasm sort of obvious. I really hate when people post sort of ambiguous snarcasm and I have to read it two or three times to be sure..


    I surely hope you get the difference between cleaning up a loose line, or fixing an obvious safety hazard .. vs the kind of permanent routing changes that this thread is meant to address. I am sort of surprised at the # of people who posted that they think unreported changes are ok. That's kind of why I tend to hate surveys. Because its hard to include all potential qualifiers to might change some peoples answers.


    I mean.. heck.. What If I got a wild hair one morning, and decided I thought there should be a T at the park bench and integrate the bone line into the gold line. (just an example to make a point.... not a real suggestions).. According to 4 surveyed here, that's perfectly ok. And it might not present an issue for many folks here who know the system. But what about the many folks who travel in and don't see these caves all that ofen.


    With exception of repairing a line, or correcting a safety issue.. I don't think the average joe-cave diver should be messing around with permanent lines in caves. If there is a good reason to make a change, it should be made public.

    Posting on the Interwebs is reasonable, but not everyone checks Facebook / Forums etc. What's wrong with a written notice posted at the site? What the change was, who made it and why.
