Sorry about that. 'Twas a minor update I did last night to fix a small bug just before I went to sleep and I wound up turning it into a much bigger bug!

It should be fixed now.

It is probably just a bug, but it could be a political statement. Today's theme is Guy Fawkes Day.

I fixed the typo in the quote to say "bug" instead of "big" so it'll make more sense that way, but that's just darned funny! Purely a coincidence! Nothing more! =)

I just tried to list my first LTC tracker and it came up as a traditional tracker. How do I change it?? As it stands right now LTC's can't be listed on it.

Your best bet is to delete it and start over, setting the new one up as an LTC tracker.

We are just starting to figure out letterboxing and we're wondering if there are any specific rules or laws about where we can place a letterbox in our area. Who do we ask- how do we know?

I recommend finding several letterboxes before planting. That way you'll see what places people like to letterbox and what places people avoid (schoolgrounds, playgrounds, prisons, poison ivy patches, landfills, Walmart dumpsters)

The Code of Conduct has some information.

Find your state board and see if there's anybody in your area.

By no means a complete list, check the Land Manager Policies section of the help pages. It'll at least give you some information. You can also try googling phrases like "letterboxing in texas state parks" or whatever is relevant to you or the specific website with information about a park you're interested in. Most of them don't typically have information about letterboxing, but if there's a section on geocaching, you'll probably be safe assuming the rules will be similar to letterboxing.

What do you mean to avoid ivy patches? My first plant was in an ivy patch!

Seriously, I didn't know what poison ivy looked like, and I ended up planting in a sparse patch of poison ivy. In my defense, even if I'd know what do look for it was early in the year, before it really got growing. I did end up moving it out of that patch, closer to the trail.

Not me.

Hmmmm ... I see that your account is relatively new, and I cannot honestly say I know what the AQ mailbox would look like if I had never sent or received mail ....

So I'll send you an AQ mail and let's see what happens.

I wasn't even sure what you meant by this, so I logged into your account and it appears you minimized your AQ mail widget. And I thought--ah, that's what you meant!

So I maximized it again. Click the + button in the upper-right corner of the page to expand a widget and the - button in the upper-right corner to minimize it. (Which is what you apparently did at some point.)

I can't view the clues for a box. Do an advanced search, click on a box, click on the link to its clues. Error page displayed.

A while ago we could reserve a Name for a future letterbox we would want to plant. Where can I find this now? I saved one years ago (shame on me) and now I can't find it to plant the box. I'm also to old to remember what the name was too!! Ack!

Go to your logbook. Under Action select Plants. Under Box Type select Traditional. Click on the down arrow for a list. The last one is Reserved.

I hope the one you saved is still there.
