I have tried to archive a new mailbox message and the icon is grayed out and when I hover over it, it says that it is disabled. Is anyone else having that issue?

thanks

Things are working just fine for me. I have some in the Archive and I just moved some into the Archive and it worked just fine.

It seems as though the "Finds" download is also including some set of "Plants"... IF you are also a finder.

Yeah, that's a bug. Tried to fix one bug and managed to introduce another one. There shouldn't ever be multiple lines of the same box just because there are multiple planters.

The problem should be fixed now, though! Which isn't to say I haven't introduced another bug or that one of you eagle-eyed people will spot one that has (so far) been previously undiagnosed.

It's tricky stuff!

It's probably because your archive folder is full. You can only archive a maximum of 1000 messages in a folder. Premium members can create additional folders for archiving purposes, but otherwise you'll have to delete some old messages from the folder before you can save more.

I'm getting random found boxes repeated.

At this point I've started to go through the list from the beginning, one by one, adding location, planter, and other info. I think I'm up to box 60. I guess I should have been maintaining my own electronic logbook from the very beginning because it's going to take forever.

Is anyone else having trouble with the funny button on the message boards? All of the other buttons work fine, but when I hit the funny button, it does nothing, and that's not funny!

You mean the "Slap Wassa Silly" button?
It registers as a vote, but doesn't always go bold or increase the count immediately, IF the "Funny" tag has been replaced by a different string (such as, oh, "Slap Wassa Silly").

Most people won't understand what I am saying. I'm kinda used to that.

Yep, that's the one.

But several of my other buttons are 'special' (like moo instead of hug), and those work immediately. Why doesn't Slap Wassa Silly? Is it perhaps because you don't want to be slapped silly (no matter how much you deserve it)??

Hmm, let’s see...

~I tried to grab the fog. I mist.

~To the person who took my anti-depressants - I hope you’re happy!

~I can tell if people are judgemental just by looking at them.

Nope, works fine for me.

Except it really doesn't work, and I wasn't actually trying to be funny. I just want to be able to use the button and have it work like all of the other ones!

Ok, try it now! It was the space between the "Slap Wassa Silly" words that was the problem.

Heck, EVERYONE try it, so we can be SURE that the Funny button works... go ahead, click the Funny button, right on this post. Test it out. *whistling innocently*

“But my shame was on display…” said Wassamatta u
“On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find it.”
“That’s the display department.”
“With a flashlight.”
“Ah, well, the lights had probably gone.”
“So had the stairs.”
“But look, you found my shame, didn’t you?”
“Yes,” said Trekkie Gal, “yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Lion.”

Thank you Mr. Adams.

Posting on the Boards often will get a moderator's attention for a query like this. If you don't have a moderator contact you or respond in some fashion, you can send a request to remove a subaccount to Ryan or Wassa - they will help I am sure :)

Happy Sunday!

Is there a way to do a People search with a partial name that I don't know the first part of? Like ______ Boxer? Using an * with at the beginning of the name or something?

If you search for boxer, then you will get a list of all if the people whose trail name starts with boxer.

boxer b
boxer buds
boxer gang
etc.

I hope that helps.

If I understand correctly, the poster is looking for a way to search where you know part of the name, not necessarily the beginning. For example, you know the name contains "boxer", but starts with something else, such as "Happy Boxer" or "We are Boxers".

Someone just showed me how to do it if you're searching box names (in the name search box, include --^--boxer), but it doesn't seem to work in the People search (at least not in my quick 2 minutes of trying).

Here's more info

Click NEXT to the People tab in the brown/yellow area. It will bring up a page; upper left will be a 'browse member' tab. An alphabetical listing of all AQ members.
