The message I get is on AQ, telling me that 'mail' has bounced back. Is the bounced mail just the notification (to yahoo) that I have new messages? Or are the actual AQ messages bouncing off to somewhere unknown? I don't have the actual messages for...

It would just be the notifications of new AQ mail. That's all you should be getting.

My understanding is that it is somehow a matter of time, before the bounced email notifications stop. So I continue to verify my email each time. Today, sent (4:00am)I have the normal email in yahoo that says “you have new messages . . . “ and in fac...

I've created a short list of contacts (quite awhile ago) and I've noticed that I cannot access the links on those. For example, I wanted to send a message to one of my contacts. I went to the page where they are listed, but when I click on the envelop...

I'm not sure what to tell you. As far as I can tell, everything is working properly. I even logged into your account, went to the My Contacts page, and clicked the profile button for every one of your contacts, but all of them worked just fine. Maybe...

Very odd. When I click on the icon, the "read mail" of the person below flickers like crazy. I use Google Chrome. Maybe I'll delete all my contacts and then reload them. Thanks for your input. AW

I tried it in Chrome and saw the weird behavior you described. As far as I can tell, it's a browser bug. There's no reason I can find for the flicker and it appears limited to that browser. Seems like someone would have mentioned it sooner if it had be...

How exactly does one list a bonus box?
by MaudeProfileContactLogbookNote
Board: Letterboxing Help Desk
A bonus box is exactly like a regular traditional box ~ assuming you are putting the bonus clue into a traditional box, or burying the clue in the clue of a traditional box. EX-cept! When you get to the last page of the listing - RESTRICTIONS - and yo...

Thank you Maude.

Another tip: You generally don't generally give a clue online for the bonus box, though you can. You may want to list the real clue so that they can find it after they have found the parent box, but they have to make two trips because they usually don...

The AQ posted "clue" for my bonus boxes usually gives background info on the carve. For example, I have a bonus box with an image of a anime character - if the finder doesn't know who it is, they can read my "clue" (actually, comments) and gain some i...

Listing a bonus box is quite complicated in MHO

... Two trips??? What are you talking about? I am boxing. I find a box. I look inside the box and there is a clue for a bonus box. I go find the bonus box, usually somewhere fairly nearby. I go home. I log the parent box. I then am able to see the bo...

... What I meant was that you put the clue online instead of in the box. This will require two trips. Or you could put it both in the parent box and online. They missed it in the field and when they get home they discover a new box that they hadn't...

I'm still getting duplicate emails, but not every time. I've tried to determine if I can find a pattern to it, but I can't. Sometimes a 'find' report is duplicated, sometimes not. Sometimes a 'reply' to a message I sent is duplicated, sometimes not....

This is how I do a Bonus Box. Usually I put the clue in the box with the logbook. It's clearly written in the back of the log book. No real guess work as to where to find it. Either very near-by, a few feet away, or on the way back down the trail at...

O_K said... Curious, are you saying I can't know that you've put out a bonus box until I get home and list my finds? My typical boxing day is 200-400 miles round trip before I get home to list finds. That's when I get to see that there's bonus box? As...

Getting home and later finding out there WAS a bonus is disappointing. But I blame it on bicycle Dave whose job is to open the box and hand me the stamp. Since,as he says he has tunnel vision, he often misses the bonus. C'est LA vie!

I have default checked under Letterboxes & Searches for my "finds" "plants" "attempts" When doing an advanced search, there are some boxes with a green check showing. It is probably my misunderstanding. Can someone explain?
by SagacornProfileContactLogbookNote

Not a big thing but may be related to a bug in the recent update. When I hit send button in AQ mail it take up to 8 seconds to actually send. This is new as it used to respond in 1-2 seconds. I can live with it but I'm wondering if anyone/everyone i...

I have some like that, but figured out that those are series in which I found some of the boxes, but not all of them. Could that be what you're seeing?

Thanks for clarifying what I meant. I was specifying some non-standard usages of the clue field of bonus boxes. Personally, with one exception, I taped the clue to the bonus box inside the box. Sometimes it faces in, and sometimes you need to turn o...

These are single boxes still alive that I have found. Most are finds, not plants or attempts. Also, listed only on AQ (in case there is that question).

Here’s the deal. If I miss a bonus box for whatever reason life goes on. If for some reason I am back in that same area I may or may not go back for it. Chances are I don’t back there, don’t get the bonus box and as I said life goes on just fine with...
