So we got a good joke and chuckle off of the Green Check Marks question, but not a serious reply , does that mean we do or don't get the GREEN Check Marks back???

AQ is my favorite website and it is quite awesome, but when we get use to having something and it get whisked away we miss it.

Hi Hi Hi!
I'm going to be in the West Linn area July 15th thru 19th.
Are there any boxers in the area that would like to meet up for an exchange?

Starting with the next letter of the alphabet, tell us something that you look forward to seeing this summer while letterboxing -- and have fun with it! I will start with A.

Aliens. Definitely aliens. I am not looking forward to the scary, abducting, probing aliens but more the friendly aliens like those who work at the office in Men in Black. You know, some of whom might even be your letterboxing friends. 🤣

So I missed all the answers you posted Multiple times on bringing back to Green Check marks. I didn't want to waste anymore of your time and upset you (your reply sounded a little harsh). Truly sorry to waste your time. So I decided to try to find your answer, I found this:
From 2013:
oooh, check marks, stars, eyes all on my What's New widget

It didn't really make sense to stop at just the green check marks. As soon as I added those, I knew people would be asking for all that other stuff as well so I just added it all! =)

Nope. They're just on the Advanced Search page instead of the logbook.

This search took all of about 5 seconds: Linky

Thus spake Wronghat (2019):
You are able to get the other person's logbook with the green checkmarks by doing an Advanced Search with the other person's trailname in the Finder column. Unless, of course, the other person has restricted that page from searches--but in that case, the logbook wouldn't have shown green checkmarks either.
14th Annual Plant a Letterbox Day (PAL)

If you want to use the reserved box function to start work on listing your PAL boxes, that option is now available for 2019. If you listed boxes as reserved starting May 17, they would add in to the widget state counts. Be sure to make the plant date May 24 when you activate if you'd like the PAL widget to count them.

Really?

What about the question of getting back the multiple pages as opposed to one very long page for traditional finds in our logbooks?

Yeah, and now you know why I didn't want to reply. It's a topic I'm absolutely sick of.

Okay, to repeat for those who missed it:

I had to fix the logbooks to run faster. They were slowing down the system and I optimized them. After going through several iterations where everyone just got upset and hated every change I made, I basically said, "Screw it!" I'll do it how I like it and not worry about pissing everyone off since everyone was already pissed off anyhow. At least I was happy. Maybe I'll take another look at things after I finished the Jordan Trail.

And when someone explicitly asked about the green checkmarks, I replied with the same answer. Tough it out, and maybe I'll take another look at it later.

What about the question of getting back the multiple pages as opposed to one very long page for traditional finds in our logbooks?

Same answer. Tough it out, and maybe I'll do something about later, but there are reasons I put them all on a single page.

These changes weren't made to piss everyone off--there was a reason for them: to keep AQ humming along fast, efficiently and reliably. Nobody seems to care about that, although I suspect it would be a bigger concern if AQ went down often for long periods of time for no apparent reason. It's one of those perks people tend to take for granted until it goes away.

Anyhow, I have some thoughts about what I'll do with the logbook.

But for now, it is what it is, and when I've made any changes or updates, I'll make an announcement. This answer applies to all logbook questions. Tough it out for now, and maybe you'll like the next iteration of the online logbook.

I've noted all of your concerns and I will take them under consideration. I'll be happy to read your suggestions and ideas, but until there's news to report, I don't really have anything to actually say about the logbooks.

And really, you don't want me to reply to these messages because I won't have anything to say that you want to hear. I'm doing y'all a favor by not replying. *nodding* =)

Hello All-
If you are headed to Susquehanna Sojourn, plan to meet for a little pre-event dinner at The Whole In The Wall in Binghamton, NY. We will be there at 6:30 pm on Friday May 31th, 2019 to eat, kibbitz and maybe get a stamp or two :) Due to size constraints we have to limit the dinner to 12 people. Let me know if you plan to attend. Hope to see you there! Lotus & Leafcutters

Birds. Birds are a pleasant reminder of nature, and that we are in their domain. It is fun to be able to identify a bird, but seeing a new type of bird is also interesting because I get to try to identify it.

And while I'm out there I will be planting and finding letterboxes. (I could have always gone with Boxes, but that would be too obvious.)

Thanks for this website. I am just glad to have a hobby that is essentially free and supported by so many fantastic people who are very giving with info & help. For all those hours of trying to improve the website for the general good, my hat's off to you!
