i received your "sending a test message" email that you sent at 5:05 p.m. today at 6:33 p.m.

The error message did say that the message was "deferred." =)

I guess the deferment was over!

But there are still old Yahoo messages that are bouncing (for the time being) so it could still happen.

Amazing event or not, and lots of events are amazing.....people should still retire boxes they took home with them. The fact that it's amazing really doesn't figure into that.

Just sayin'.

I have received an AQ mail for 3 days in a row telling me my email address is not verified and to please click the link to verify. I have clicked the link to verify, the screen tells me I’m verified, yet the next morning I have to do it all over again. Is it me, or the system that ain’t right?

Writing clues in Word first

A Cautionary Tale:

Normally, if I'm listing a series and have a longish clue, I write it in Word and then paste it into AQ. I stupidly didn't do that this morning ("why bother,?" I thought) and had just completed writing my clues when I hit the wrong key and lost all of my work. Dang (which is NOT the word I actually said).
2019 Year in Review stamps
Board: Event News and Planning

Hi all - As the year is begining to wind down, I thought I'd put out another request for stamps for the 2019 Year in Review event being held over New Years weekend up here in snowy Maine. If you can carve a stamp, I'd very much appreciate any help I can get. Due date to receive the stamps is 12/27/19. After the event concludes, the whole collection of stamps will be made into a Time Capsule event box, which can travel to events across the US. Currently the Time Capsule 2017 & Time Capsule 2018 event boxes are available to travel (with 40+ stamps each, they are a little heavy but I don't mind paying the postage for each to be sent as long as the requester doesn't mind paying for it to be returned to me.)

Here are the trackers for the event, with ideas for stamps:
2019 News and Current Events
2019 Pop Culture, Trends and Entertainment
Sports in 2019
In Memoriam 2019
My 2019

Again, thanks for any help that can be had. It's very much appreciated and the drop-in participants love to see other folks work.

Do AtlasQuest and Letterboxing.org sync finds?
Board: Letterboxing Help Desk
Oct 19, 2019 1:04pm
Thread Board
Today I was logging some old finds and I noticed that when searching up a box that I had already logged on AQ on LbNA and I noticed that it had a “My Finds” section on it on the search page. However, when I clicked on it, it didn’t show that I had logged it. I use the same username so I was wondering if it is possible that it is syncing my finds! Thanks in advance if anyone has information on this.

Trip planner is not finding nearby boxes for me. I can find the boxes by searching individual towns, but the boxes along the route are not showing.
https://www.atlasquest.com/showinfo.php?tripId=4898

PIJoe apparently uses advanced search instead of trip planner and Miss Moon uses individual towns along the route instead of trip planner. Nevertheless I thought you should know I can't get trip planner to work although I have in the past.

You'll have to give me better directions for that. I logged into your account, went to the trip page, clicked the "Nearby boxes" and it popped up fine.

I also tried using the "Trip Search" option on Simple Searches, and it worked fine.

And the search worked fine on the Advanced Search page.

So.... I'm not sure what you did, but it all looks fine as far as I can tell!

Both of ours are supposed to be checkered giants (however I don't think they are pure bred...weigh about 5-6 lbs each). They are both dark eyed, have colored ears & body is white with spine markings & spots (one has black markings & the other has light brown markings).

But you hit the jackpot with boxing & bunnies!

I'm posting this here in case anybody is in the Nashville area and is going to the last day of the powwow today. I planted this as my birthday plant yesterday. My birthday has been at the pow wow 3 years in a row.
They carve is from an old shuswap lake dancer from exactly 50 years ago. (Not Nashville, though.

To be clear, I use trip planner to create a custom trip route. Once that is saved I use the advanced search page to search along that path with the advanced search options I want.

The message I get is on AQ, telling me that 'mail' has bounced back. Is the bounced mail just the notification (to yahoo) that I have new messages? Or are the actual AQ messages bouncing off to somewhere unknown? I don't have the actual messages forwarded, just the notification that I have new messages.
