I am just glad to have a hobby that is essentially free

I wish it *was* free. lol!!!!

Gas
Tolls
Carving material
carving tools
logbooks
ink
containers
Premium Membership (for some)
Not to mention the occasional hotel room when going to events/or campground fees

Not complaining, or I wouldn't have been doing it since 2004 but I don't think there is such a thing as a truly free hobby.

Hummm.....airfare and rental car for trip to L & B in Oregon in 2008. lol

The list goes on.....lol

Nuttin' is free in dis world! lol

Sometimes quality is more enjoyable than speed

Funny, my wife says the same thing to me all the time!

PAL (International Plant a Letterbox) Day 2019

Happy PAL Day. https://www.atlasquest.com/showinfo.php?eventId=4176
If you can't get out to plant on Friday 24th, your plants still will be counted by the widget if you plant Saturday 25th. But you'll have to be sure that when you activate your letterbox plants, that you change the plant date to May 24th. Also the widget only counts letterboxes that have none for restrictions on the restriction page--that's the default so just don't change anything on the restrictions page, at least not until after PAL Day.

Logbook Updates
Board: Atlas Quest Announcements
Jun 2, 2019 10:08pm
Thread
So I've taken another whack at updating the logbooks.

  • The status of each box is now back.
  • By default, it'll only show results from the past year. You can delete the start date, however, to show all boxes, trackers, etc. if you need it.
  • If you change a search element, you have to click "update" to refresh the page. It won't auto-update anymore. The "update" button will wiggle and change colors when some of the search/filter elements have changed, however, to help remind you to click it.
  • Premium members will also have the option to filter their logbooks by name and end date.
  • Premium members will also be able to see their tags, green checkmarks and the usual small icons on the boxes.

The other big complaint that I've chosen not to do anything about is having all matches showing up on a single page of results. All results will continue to be displayed on a single page.

I love it all!! Sometimes losing something makes us appreciate it even more. Even small things like green check marks.

All of this helps me as I try to maintain my plants and dream about adventures to come. Bless you.

The date range is genius. Fabulous help.

The "update" button will wiggle and change colors when some of the search/filter elements have changed, however, to help remind you to click it.

It's also reminding us to do a happy dance about these new changes. Thanks, GT!

Thanks, GT! I especially love having the box status back - so much easier than having to click on each box! (Although I do have a search set up for my active plants, and have had for quite a while.) One question, and I'm just asking because I can't remember what the reason was for this, but any chance the unlisted finds will return to being merged with AQ finds?
Thanks muchly!

Not in the foreseeable future. That's a very slow process for large datasets and the whole purpose for my logbook updates was to keep AQ running fast.

I would delete the phone number from a public board. Perhaps give that privately to those who respond.

It’s always prudent to take preventative measures on the internet to protect your safety. Especially when you’re involved in a hotbed of dangerous villains like AtlasQuest, amirite!?

Is that why my home page is covered with photobucket ads? Because I didn't pay my $39 this year? Just wondering.

Here we go this crap Adds popping up

Do you mean ads or ADD? ‘Cause I hate it when my ADD pops up. Because when it does it’s hard to ... wait, what was I saying?

Seriously though, run an ad blocker and you’ll be a much happier camper. And think of all the pixels you’ll save in exclamation points! 😄

I'll be happy to oblige for a mere $39/year!

But seriously, either you can pay to help keep this website running, or I'll find advertisers who will pay to keep it running on your behalf. It's your choice, though! =)

The profile says this person is a premium member so it's got nothing to do with AQ.

Sick of adds every where
GET THEM OFF OF HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm also a premium member and never see an ad.....anywhere, anytime. I also have adblock installed on my laptop. And most of the time when I have ever looked at adblock there were no ads on AQ to be blocked.

So calm down, check your computer for malware as was suggested and install adblock. Those caps and exclamation points are uncalled for.

Before you go off, you could have asked people if they were also seeing ads.
