But clicking on the numbers (20) at the bottom page, I was only able to go back to Nov 6, 2017.

I'm not actually sure which page you're referring to, but I suspect you're looking at a list of "recent" messages rather than "all" messages. It's an important distinction! =)

When you're reading a board, though, if you click the "First" button, it takes you to the first message of the board.

If you want to poke around messages older than a year but not necessarily the very first messages on a board, however, I'd recommend the search boards option. You can specify the year you'd like to search from 2004 to the present. (Message boards began in 2004.) You could explore specific themes across all years as well.

It's also possible to look at the AQ Stats page which shows how many messages were posted each month since the feature was introduced. If you click on one of the months, it'll take you to the messages starting from that month.

I believe I had two reserved. But nothing shows now. Guess they get erased after a while. :(

Reserved boxes never get deleted. Maybe you just mis-remembered listing them after so much time, though? It wouldn't be the first time someone thought they listed a box but then it turned out they didn't! Or started listing a box but forgot to click "save" at the end.

This is why I always go and do a search for my new listings to be sure they are showing up in the right location, etc.

If we don't have our personal stamp don't we use our thumbprint? The sumos do the same thing, but on a larger scale.

I agree. We did that about 3am while driving up from GA to MA. I highly recommend doing it then for the extra creepy factor!

The guesses really fell off with the last clue. I'm sorry these clues have been so challenging. It amazes me how creative and resourceful y'all can get. Don't quit now no matter how hopeless it seems. Follow me to the end of the clue thread.

The cancellation marks won’t matter so long as they aren’t on the stamps.

👍 That’s hilarious!!!

That sound like a Dr. Seuss title

The Seal with an Eel Up It's Nose

I'm sorry to say
I'm sad to report
That I found a seal
In a terrible sort

The seals they do probe
They are looking for food
The eels try to escape
Ending up the seal's snood

The seals go back to the beach
Go up on the land
And begin to wheeze
Up on the sand

The problem you see,
Had by these seals
Are these things up their nose
These thing are small eels

Then the humans do see
That seal and his wheeze
They do want to help
The seal they will please

After a look, a real close exam
The eel was removed
by the Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program

This latest nose eel was also removed,
With a “slow, steady pull.”
The seal was unharmed;
But at least the eel was all whole

The seal was released
Back out on the beach
But if you're an eel
No noses! We beseech




Footnote: "Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program" just doesn't work in the meter of Seuss, but I did what I could.

Also, use a dry erase marker and scribble on the cancellation marks. Then use the dry eraser and they come right off.
