LbNA - Ignore a box
Board: Letterboxing.org Chatter

Thread
Searching LbNA and finding that boxes are retired on AQ:
Is there a way to Ignore, Block or otherwise tag the listing on LbNA?
I'm not talking about the listing that are already faded.
It's the listings that appear to be active, but when checking AQ they're listed as Retired, Unavailable or mulitple Attempts by reliable boxers.

It seems some folks forget to change the status on LbNA.

This is a big pet peeve of mine. I will usually email the box owner whenever I find AQ and LbNA out of sync as far as archived/active/retired. Some have simply forgotten that they need to make changes in both places. Many just ignore me.

Click on "Status" and then select "Ignore" from the drop down menu.

Thanks MB,
Doesn't make it go away, but does mark it with a bit ole red tag.
Oh, and Happy, Day Late, AQ Anniversary!

Same here except I don’t think I’ve ever had anyone respond to my emails, much less take action.

LBNA need a GOOD clearing out. Many boxers and boxes have not existed for a loooong time.

Choi has been very responsive when I've told him about a few items that are changed.
Maybe there could be something along the lines of a dead letter office.
The owner is missing, AQ has it listed as Retired but LbNA doesn't. Move it to the DLO.
Not the same as Archived.

Thank you for the gentle reminder. I stopped listing my boxes on lbna a long time ago, I only do it when a finder finds one of my boxes listed on AQ and they want to claim the find on lbna as well.

But methinks me best clean up anything I still have left on lbna though ...

The same could be said about AQ. There are tons of members here who have never had any activity at all or have been what I call One Plant Wonders and then gotten bored or whatever and never did anything else.

I think I archived the boxes I had on LBNA.

Except for the one I adopted which I just re-listed.

I would say rather than ignoring you they have never seen the email.

Even if you write them on AQ, lots of people have no idea they can set their preferences to be notified when they get a note so if they are not coming to the site they don't know you wrote.

Maybe changing the password is where I have the bug that causes problems. I'll check into it.

Ditto that gentle reminder. I'll be cleaning up my plants on LbNA, too. It's sad to see just how many of them have gone missing though! A whopping 39%. That's just sad. 8~(

I just got another email from someone about the "too many connections" error. I can't fix that problem since I don't have access to LBNA, but I would like to remind y'all that AQ does store copies of LbNA-hosted internally for various purposes. (To allow people to search remotely-hosted clues for keywords, print more than one clue at a time, etc.)

If LbNA is down or otherwise inaccessible, it is possible to still find the clue on AQ by clicking the "View Cache" button on the listing. It's only a copy of the clue so if it was updated recently, you might not get those changes. Typically, AQ tries to checked for updated clues at least once every month or two.

You mean see the photo on the homepage without the 'about letterboxing', 'most recently listed', etc boxes?

I don't think you can. But the photo credit is in the bottom left corner of the page.

I don't think you can see the credit and the picture at the same time without "about letterboxing", etc. But, if you click on the credit, you can see just the picture.

The photos rotate every day or so.
Not sure of the schedule, I just appreciate them as they come.

Choi could probably tell you if the photos are in an accessible file somewhere in LbNA.

So far, the photo of the whale tails, "Reverence" is my favorite.
