Once you have your list of boxes in the area, scroll down to the bottom. There will be a box to check all boxes, a box to print checked boxes, and a box to map boxes. Click the box to map boxes after you check the letterboxes you want to map. It will give you a map and instructions on how to read the different colored pins.

Okay, question.
What if a box is listed on both sites and not linked to each other. And box owner dies. It becomes adoptable on LBNA. Someone adopts it. What of the listing of the same box on AQ? How would that work?

As said before, after you do a search, scroll to the bottom of the list you get and select all (click on "CHECK ALL" button). Right near that button is the "MAP BOXES" and if you select that one you would get a map of all the boxes you found and you can even select the pinned location to see what box is at that location.

Here is an example:

Try that next time you are looking.

Sorry, I’m not trying to be snippy (nor do I have any authority here) but how is that (A) relevant to the original question and (B) not answered by the posted links and answered by Ryan himself?

Unless I’m terrible confused the situation is clear, unless you have express written consent from the original box owner you can’t list a box on AQ as yourself as the owner.

Of course, Green Tortuga might be along to correct me if I’m misunderstanding the finer points of the situation.

Reading the op had me wondering.
Say I had a box named Christmas and had it listed with clues on both sites separately. I died. Now my Christmas box is adoptable on LBNA. Someone adopts it. But what of the same Christmas box listing on AQ?

If you adopt my Christmas box on LBNA, you can make changes if needed like a changed landmark. But the listing on AQ would not be affected, since its not linked. My question then Is, would you also be able to adopt my Christmas box on AQ so you can also update the clue changes there? Or what happens to that listing?

So no new AQ listing of said box.

And maybe the rules for that are posted somewhere, I was just typing while I was wondering. 😊

I don't think consent has to be written--it could be a person's last gasp--I'll try to make it mine.

But they did wrap it up in a nice little package, for Christmas.

And the ending reminds me of the ending of Final Exam.

I do let people adopt boxes on AQ if the owner dies. They clearly don't mind it being on AQ if they listed it themselves, after all, and I don't want the box to become trash by leaving it abandoned, and it's clearly impossible to get permission from them after they kick the bucket.

So presumably, whoever adopts the box on LbNA would also adopt the box on AQ.

But you're describing a different scenario than the original question asked. Basically, I try to respect the wishes of the planter--even after their death.

Wishing you a Happy AQversary today!
I’ve enjoyed finding your boxes and love your creative wooden and other containers as well as your stamps. So glad you found Letterboxing in your retirement and have been such an active planter and finder. Always stay young at heart and keep boxing!

Enjoy

Yeap, different senerio, but related. As i said, the OP got me thinking about it.

Another senerio is the owner didn't die, just hasn't logged on in years. Box is adopted on LBNA. What happens to listing here? I've seen a few boxes around here that are abandoned on LBNA, but I think those are linked here. But what if they weren't?

Okay, I need to stop thinking about all the senerios. :D

According to my local newspaper, Lake Elmo Park reserve is going to undergo $2.5 million improvements in the fall of 2019.

My letterboxes at that park will be retrieved and retired in August.
If you want to go with me for a day of boxing/retrieving/retiring. I'll make the day into an event!

I have copics. The blender marker from the copics is not really a blender... it's an eraser. I'm only familiar with Copic markers which are alcohol-based. But as far as blending goes they do blend pretty well but at the same time the colors that are most similar blend the best together. Also I find that they blend better when the color has not yet dried on the paper. I tend to start with a light or medium color and then keeping the paper wet add my dark color on top. Then I blend another time with the lighter color. I keep going back and forth until I'm pleased with what I have done . I sometimes even use the blender / eraser marker just to lighten it up. Keeping the paper wet seems to work well. I don't know if that would help with your markers or not but I thought I would at least suggest it.

Have you watched the new YouTube videos about your markers?

Thanks for the ideas! I might see if I can get a blender.

I searched and found one, but she kept going off topic so it was hard to watch. So that's why I asked here. :)

Sometimes I will look for reviews like on amazon or even google "[name of markers] blogs". Sometimes things will pop up. Otherwise I suppose you could see if they react at all like copics. You could possibly watch a few YouTube videos on copics and see if any of their techniques work for your markers?

Oh!! I thought of another idea that I just started. I've started searching in Facebook. Type your markers in the search section and see what comes up. A lot of times people will have groups or pages and that's where you can learn quite a few techniques. And if not any groups are pages about your markers sometimes certain art pages will pop up and people will be talking about a specific product. And then you can look at that post and see what they say about the markers and possibly join the group and talk about them that way too.
