Seems like there have been a few letterboxer deaths lately. Those tribute pages are one feature on AQ I hate having to use. =(

Thanks for letting us know, though, and I've added her obituary to the tributes page for her.

Sorry about both these losses.

Team JSABAIL often boxed in Evansville and I'd noticed that they hadn't been here for quite a while. They were always good at finding boxes, they appreciated interesting things, and they always left nice feedback, so I'm sorry that the team has lost a member.

Wendy, I'm sorry to learn that. Jane was so very kind when we were at the GS event where my daughter was working on her award, where we first met.

Sorry to hear of the loss of yet others of our group. Hoping all that cared for them find peace and great remembrances for the joy they gave to all while here with them.

I'm curious, Ryan, where I might find the pages of the tributes. I have looked under the headers above for that word to turn to, but alas, with no luck. I can find my brothers easily from looking at one of his box details, but I want to be able to go find out those I may have missed hearing about before now.
Thank you for any answer,
Okie Dog

OD - click on the "People" header then go to "Tributes" to find the boxers who are, undoubtedly, teaching St. Peter how to play.

I've posted more details about the update I just did to the AQ blog in The Biggest Update You've Never Seen!

In a nutshell, though, pretty much none of the stuff I updated is visible.

The most noteworthy feature from your point of view is that AQ can now automatically rotate images so they're always up. If you ever had trouble uploading photos to your clues and having them show up sideways, that problem has finally been fixed. =)

Happy trails!

So we got a good joke and chuckle off of the Green Check Marks question, but not a serious reply , does that mean we do or don't get the GREEN Check Marks back???

AQ is my favorite website and it is quite awesome, but when we get use to having something and it get whisked away we miss it.

No, no serious replies. I stopped replying to the question. I've answered it multiple times, and I'm not wasting time answering this question anymore.

So I missed all the answers you posted Multiple times on bringing back to Green Check marks. I didn't want to waste anymore of your time and upset you (your reply sounded a little harsh). Truly sorry to waste your time. So I decided to try to find your answer, I found this:
From 2013:
oooh, check marks, stars, eyes all on my What's New widget

It didn't really make sense to stop at just the green check marks. As soon as I added those, I knew people would be asking for all that other stuff as well so I just added it all! =)

Author: I put in: Green Tortuga. I runned the search and did not find the answer.

Nope. They're just on the Advanced Search page instead of the logbook.

This search took all of about 5 seconds: Linky

Thus spake Wronghat (2019):
ā€œYou are able to get the other person's logbook with the green checkmarks by doing an Advanced Search with the other person's trailname in the Finder column. Unless, of course, the other person has restricted that page from searches--but in that case, the logbook wouldn't have shown green checkmarks either.
14th Annual Plant a Letterbox Day (PAL)

If you want to use the reserved box function to start work on listing your PAL boxes, that option is now available for 2019. If you listed boxes as reserved starting May 17, they would add in to the widget state counts. Be sure to make the plant date May 24 when you activate if you'd like the PAL widget to count them.
