Hey, what about me? I haven't found any of your boxes, but you created the logbook that's in one of my plants. Isn't that a close enough connection?

What about HHs? I have found one of yours!

What about boxes with your stamp in it (donated), but I am the owner? I have one of those, too.

Come to TN!

I only see "Top 10 common" finders. Is there a list of EVERYone who've found them?

I think there's only a list for the top ten. It says how many total finders you've had, but I guess it's up to you to track them down.

And then of course there are all those finders who don't log their finds on AQ....

I remember your converting a muggle on that box : ) That box and one in AK about as far as you can span the US. Kudos to that accomplishment

If you had 10 boxes and 1 person found all of them, you'd have 1 finder and 10 finds. If you had 20 boxes that 25 people all found, you'd have 25 finders and 500 finds. 246 finders can easily add up to 2500 finds.

I just checked my stats:

Total finds on your boxes: 11,310
Total finders on your boxes: 417

Looks like I'm keeping the locals pretty busy! :^) Of course, I wonder what my stats looked like before L&B??

Statistics can lie.

I believe that there is a Mark Twain quote about that.

Also I was oversimplifying, as I said. I think that you maintain you ratio because of visitors. I think that Hawaii could do that too with fewer boxers in that state because they get even more visitors than Alaska. The fun of being a tourist destination.

The find ratio to number of boxes placed also increases as your planting area expands. We would never have had as many visitors to our boxes had we not been fortunate enough to plant in many states, and frequently along oft-traveled routes.
