Here's a situation that confuses me a little: this box has not been found in 3 years, the planter has not even logged on in 3 years, but it just changed status from unknown to active. How can that happen if the planter didn't update it, and nobody foun...

Maybe someone just logged an old find? That's a shame about PP not boxing anymore :( Her stamps were awesome and she was so nice!

All I can tell you is that when a PERSON updates the status, the 'last modified' changes. That one still says August 20, 2007. I have never paid attention to that field on the boxes that AQ changes automatically so don't know if it changes it or not.

Oh, duh. I should have read more carefully. Sorry for leading you on a wild goose chase.

but it just changed status from unknown to active. How can that happen if the planter didn't update it, and nobody found it? Because an attempt that used to be on the box went away so the last person on the finds/attempt list is a find rather than an a...

Because an attempt that used to be on the box went away so the last person on the finds/attempt list is a find rather than an attempt. I'm still going with Chuck Norris ; )

Thanks - that makes sense. I think I like turkey feathers' explanation better though!

I noticed this when I typed a clue for a letterbox that had a code to decipher... After painstakingly adding extra spaces between the words to make it easier for the person deciphering the code to tell where the word breaks were supposed to be it chang...

Wasn't this one a limited time lb?
by KelsungProfileContactLogbookNote
Board: Atlas Quest Announcements
It's limited time because the clue says it is only available May to Aug.
by KirbertProfileContactLogbookNote
Board: Atlas Quest Announcements
And for that reason, I've always found the "limited time" attribute a bit confusing. To me, "limited time" should mean that it'll only be available for a little while and then it'll be gone forever. If it's extended to mean that it's only available f...

If it's extended to mean that it's only available for a little while and then it'll be gone until next year, where does it stop? Are boxes that are only available Monday through Friday "limited time"? How about those that are only available during dayt...

You're over-thinking things, Kirbert. =) when did Kirbert start overthinking things ? : )

Board: Atlas Quest Announcements
Oh, I see that now... I hadn't looked at the clue before, just the "limited time" icon. I always thought that was used when a box was only available for a limited time and then retired. Thanks! : )

Once again, people are making use of words and phrases in ways that do not fit Kirbert's personal definition. This has just got to be stopped. How dare anyone expect us to read the clues and think for ourselves rather than skim some icons and immedia...

If a double amputee held a carving tool in his teeth to make a stamp, is he still allowed to use the "hand-carved" icon? Damn straight they do!!!! More power to 'em, too....

I would be so tempted to use the word of mouth icon if I were a double amputee. To mean mouth carved.

How can I remove an event box from my event?
by FloridaFourProfileContactLogbookNote

Retire it or make unavailable?
by AiphidProfileContactLogbookNote
Board: Atlas Quest Announcements
How can I remove an event box from my event? Open the box details page, find the even in the list of events under the box details, click "drop" on the right side of the event.

Isnt there a way to write the clues but hide them? Someone tried to explain this to me once but I felt like I was trying to sort hay for a needle. This site is great. Lots of info. At the same time, there's LOTS of info. Im constantly learning with hug...

So, is there a way to make the clue then hide it? You can do this by creating a reserved box. It is like creating a traditional box, except that you can't specify the location or some attributes that go with traditional boxes. When you are ready for yo...

This qualifies as a duh: Write the clues on Notepad and save them on your own 'puter. Once the box is actually in place, just copy-and-paste the text into the clue field on AQ. Really, you wanna keep a copy of those clues for yourself anyway, just i...

When I log onto AQ, I can't view any of the icons or theme pictures. I know the icons (contact member, profile, ect) are still there because if I run the mouse over them, the little box comes up telling me what they are. But it has been a couple days...

I believe I saw an option for that in the theme preferences. But to me (and in no was am I computer literate) it sounds like a browser issue. What are you using and have you tried anything else or refreshing your cache or cookies or whatever?
