my gathering planning experience can be summarized as "lets meet at this cool bar"

I've experienced a PA Drink & Ink & Drink event where slack boxing turned into slosh boxing.

You could send the person a email if you wanted to or you could see where there boxes are idk those are the only things that I could think of. It's probably for the better that you can't see there location.

How did we get spam on board today? I didn't even think board posts could be that long.

I thought the same thing. Lol

I reported it (first time using that lower left button) and hit "rude" button too in order to draw admins. attention.

But hey, do you need a watch? ;) Lol

The spam has been deleted. Thanks to those who reported it. One of the admins will have to block the IP address so that person can't do it again.

Totally legit. I only deleted it so that I would be the only to get in on that fabulous deal. ;)

Hey, leave some definitely real designer watches for the rest of us! Opportunities like that are the only reason I joined AQ. I mean, the letterboxing is *fine*, but the real value here is the not-to-be-missed fashion steals and deals.

We actually had a client who sent a bunch of money to someone because she won a lottery in England. My boss told her to call the FBI.

One time my nephew was playing online poker. There was no money involved, but there could be; basically, you were invited to play for no stakes until you were ready to start gambling. My brother and I mused about the chances that the site was legit, ran honest games, etc., so my nephew decided to look into it. He quickly discovered that the poker site was hosted in Costa Rica. "Yeah, you'll get your money back from that!"
Suggestion: Add Event Calendar Export (Google Cal and iCal)
Board: Suggestion Box

I'd love to see integration of events with calendar exports to Google Calendar. Perhaps there are other popular formats out there as well that could be added as a calendar export option as well. It would be doubly awesome if AQ knew my calendar preference and automatically exported the event to my calendar when I join an event, to avoid a second action. I suppose some might not want events to be automatically added, so a personal setting could include a do nothing setting, as well as specific Google Calendar subcalendar selections. All the same an Export to Calendar button by itself would be great.

Other than AQ telepathically doing box searches and logs for me, this would be my most desired new feature!

If others feel this feature would be worthy, chime in.

Followed threads widget
Board: Suggestion Box
Aug 4, 2016 6:53am
There should be a "followed threads" widget like the favorite boards widget but for threads.
With settings to see all followed threads or only followed threads with new messages, and to automatically follow threads when you start a new thread or not
When you have this widget on your page you then would see buttons to follow and unfollow threads on the boards.
Larger Text
Board: Suggestion Box
Aug 5, 2016 9:32am
I just made a post where I would have liked a character to be larger than usual. I wanted it inline with other text so I couldn't use the HEADING markups to make it larger. Even html markup is limited in what is accepted.

Please make it possible to make larger (and smaller) text inline with other text.

Can we change the color of text (other than the Wassa markup)? That would be neat to do too.
Disable reserved box hints page

I use reserved boxes a lot (every box I plant is first reserved actually), so it would be helpful to have an option in preferences to disable the hints page and go straight to the details when saving.

One thing that might be kinda handy: On the "My Recent Posts" widget, it'd be nice if there was a button on the bottom that allowed you to see your older posts.
