Unavailable boxes are automatically retired after a year. Were your boxes unavailable for more than a year?

Ignored boxes

After I log a find, I ignore the box so it doesn't show up on my list of boxes I still "need". I have been told I shouldn't have done that and would like to know if there is a way to "un-ignore" them.
Thanks.

I’m pretty sure I speak for everyone here when I say, “do you have any of those drugs left?”

On the Advanced Search page there is an option to "Show only ignored boxes". Then you can click on a box and then click unignore.

Humm..

Just out of curiosity I did that and got a list of 16 boxes, some of which I have found, some I have not found and some I have never even seen or heard of much less ever ignored.

One that came up is a series, two of which I found recently and never opted to ignore those two boxes or the series but there is a button on the series to unignore it as though I *had* ignored it.

My lighted magnifying lamp died and I am looking to buy a new one. What do others recommend? The one I have is no longer available.

Ahhh, that makes sense. I had edited my clues a couple months ago, so that must have prevented them from getting auto-retired.

Me too! I chose "show ignored boxes" and put my name in as finder and it worked perfectly for me. I tend to ignore series where I may have found some of the boxes but either don't plan on returning to find the rest or think they are gone so I don't want them in my searches. All that showed up on my list were the legitimately ignored series.

Even with doing this search, Teacup has quite a job to go into each one and unignore them.

Boxes that might need to be retired, or I've given up on trying to find, get both ignored and watched just in case someone makes a change.

Very old last finds do not fall into this category unless reliable commenters lead me to believe it would be a fruitless pursuit.

Finding very old last finds give me a little tingle.

The flag is flying at our house today. My grandfather was proud that flag day was the same day as his birthday. I always think of him on this day. Unfortunately, no one else in our neighborhood ever flies a flag.

I have never ignored this series. So why does it show (to me) that I need to UNignore it? And the other boxes that came up that I have never even seen or heard of.....why would they come up as being ignored by me specifically?

On behalf of the entire cave family thank you for all the wonderful comments. We had so much fun visiting, playing games, and watching the hunt. We actually started thinking about 2020 possibilities.

Obviously, AQ thinks you want to ignore it, and the most likely reason is because you did click the button to ignore it.

The box you specifically mentioned was planted in 2009. You say that you had never seen or heard of the box, but can you really remember every single box you looked it in the last ten years? I can't. I flip through my logbook of actual finds and see stamps I don't "ever" remember seeing before. Memory is funny that way.

More likely, you probably forgot having ever seen or heard of it. It's not an insult--it just happens. We're human with human limitations.

As for why you would have ignored it when you clearly did not want to--it could have just been an accident. You were looking at the listing sometime eons ago on your smartphone, perhaps, and accidentally clicked the "ignore" button without realizing it while trying to scroll down the page. It happens. People click all sorts of buttons by accident.

That's why I have to add an "are you sure?" message to confirm a lot of choices. The ignore button isn't one of those options with a confirmation, however, so if you click it by accident, presto, it's ignored! It's easy enough to unignore the box again--one more click takes are of that--but if you didn't realize you clicked it in the heat of the moment, it can end up ignored until the end of time.

And if I had to guess--and it's only a guess--that's what I think happened. Over the last 15 years, you've accidentally ignored a dozen or listings and never thought to check your ignore list (until recently) to realize you had done so.
