Y'know, those scams must work on some people. Otherwise they wouldn't keep doing it.

Ya know, it's dinner time here, and I'm trying to motivate myself to go cook. I see this, and think "Yeah...some good Spam recipes for dinner!" But noooooo, my hopes for gourmet canned meat product are dashed again. Back to eating it raw out of the can!

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
Aug 2, 2016 8:31am
Thread
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
Board: Suggestion Box

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.

There already is. Top left corner, it says First or Previous. You can go backwards one at a time or go all the way back to your first post.

I don't use that widget. I go to my Profile page and click on recent posts. Then the buttons are there. You can do that from any profile page.

OK, it took me a while to find the Recent Posts button because it's such a cute work of art. Yeah, I can see how that would work -- but I still think it'd be handy to have a "My Previous Posts" button at the bottom of the widget. Or perhaps just a button that'd take you to the same place the button on the My Profile page takes you.

It's a premium member perk which is available from the CSV button at the top of the search results.

AQ Mail Drafts
Board: Suggestion Box
Aug 19, 2016 8:02am
Thread
Has there been any thought of automatically putting messages started into a draft file if they are not completed for one reason or another? I was involved in a lengthy AQ mail today and got distracted and pushed the wrong key on my keyboard. Clicked the back arrow and my draft is totally gone. I have to start all over. Just a thought.

I would love that, too!

I do this sometimes when writing clues. Now I usually type them in Word first and then paste them in. This prevents me from shrieking in frustration and scaring the heck out of the cats or family members.

I just did that a little while ago when I lost my AQ mail.

I agree with the idea of using Word and pasting. I usually think about that when it's too late though. i noticed my private email has a draft page and anytime I start an email it automatically goes into drafts and stays there quite awhile.

That would be great. I have had a lot of problems writing clues, and having them disappear before I could finish. Sometimes it's just the internet going awry for a second, and all is lost.

I just do them in Notepad. Word has too many features that won't translate into an AQ clue listing.

Distance less than 1/10th mile
Board: Suggestion Box
Aug 27, 2016 11:26pm
Thread
I planted a box today that is 225 feet (along the trail) from the trailhead. This is a round-trip distance of 450 feet. I set the distance attribute to "Stroll" - 1 mile or less. I didn't set it to "Drive-By" because it is more than 50 feet from the parking lot.

There should be something in between these two. I don't know what to call it but it will let people know that it isn't a 5-minute-thing, but it also isn't a half-hour-thing.

I think most finders would call that distance a stroll. If you're concerned that people who are short on time might not look for it, you can always say something like "this box should take you only 10 minutes" in the clues.
