Does this mean a box name I reserved back in Nov 2018 will now count for the PAL day total if I plant it now and activate it on May 24th?

No. The Rules and Regulations state that the reserved box can't be listed until May 17th.

I would like to suggest that the Plant Date for Reserved box names should be when the box is made active rather than the date it is created in AQ.

Done!

So not done. Ok

Similar but Dissimilar Event

Fairy Stone State Park has a bunch of neat features, and the cabins were even air conditioned! Piggy kept us moving and hiking and clearly put a lot of work into making this a fun weekend of boxing for us. It was great to see so many old and new friends.

What clever themes there were for this event title. I really liked the night boxes because that particular topic is a peeve of mine. LOL.

Thank you for your efforts, Piggy Jaunt! Until the next time....

PS. Special thanks to our cabin mates, Super Hedge Hoggie, who got up this morning and made breakfast for the cabin. It was yummy, and you are appreciated!

The plant date isn't the same as the "creation date." The plant date is set to whatever date you activate a reserved box and can be edited and changed by the owner. The creation date doesn't change. Ever.

So yes done. *nodding*

Yes, what a great event and wonderful time of boxing! Thank you Piggy Jaunt for all of your hard work. I'm still fairly new and learned a lot and made several new friends. I hope there will be an encore next year.

I strongly agree with everything RDHG said.
Fairy Stone State Park is quite awesome. I have been many times over the years and I learned something new this weekend. The man made lake was filled up over a small town. There once was mining and moonshine making going on in the area.

Then there is the Fairystones that you can go to and hunt them for free. We found a lot!!!!

Piggy Jaunt went above and beyond with her event there, it was so much fun.

Any "creation date" (I know what you are referring to, just sounds like a newish term) that falls outside the PAL "window" precludes a box from PAL consideration? I'm not a PAL fan, just would like a clarification since I'm not seeing an issue reserving an idea to work on over a period of time in hopes of creating a quality product and then executing the actual box during the PAL parameters. I can't imagine the conception to fruition for a legitimate PAL box has to be within that short time frame.

-confused in Chelmsford

PS How about a PyFB (plant you finest box) day once a year.

PPS If this line of questioning is silly, please refer to our trail name.

Yes.

I'm not seeing an issue reserving an idea to work on over a period of time in hopes of creating a quality product and then executing the actual box during the PAL parameters.

I don't see an issue with that either--but it won't count as a PAL Day box because there were issues in the past with people who planted several dozen boxes over a period of months then activated all the boxes at once on PAL Day... which kind of defeats the whole purpose of PAL Day. So I stopped counting those, and the easiest way for me to identify boxes that were really planted long before PAL Day was the creation date.

If it knocks a few of the legitimate plants out from being counted.... Well, I made the rules clear. And if it's just a "placeholder" with a name, it's not hard for someone to delete the reserved listing and just create a fresh one.

But basically, it's a legacy from people abusing the system in years past. In fact, several of the rules were created due to past abuses.

I know it's been since October.

He has been contacted with no response. People have posted on the facebook page with no response, messaged him with no response.

I have also contacted him about adopting an LBNA box that had no link to adopt but was very old with planter no longer active. No response.

I recently emailed Choi in the past month and received a response regarding old letterboxes to archive and he was very responsive. I can only imagine that he is dealing with something more pressing than letterboxing. While it may be discouraging, be thankful we have other outlets at this time.
