If it doesn't interest you then use the ignore button.

Why? It should be obvious to almost everyone that it interests me, as I've participated.

I think it would be a better concept if the discussion were limited or non-existent, specifically, as the concept has an element of surprise or "aha" that the discussion compromises. It is refreshing to see concepts that are different that most boxes, but surprise would make them better, IMHO.

If I used the ignore button, I could not make that, or other points to try to improve the concept. I've tried to be constructive in this thread, or at least to reflect on historical traditions and definitions. I don't think using the ignore button would allow me to be constructive, nor do I believe suggesting its use has a constructive purpose or motive.

With direction boxes predominant, a little something something extra at the hide destination puts a smile on my face.

I think it depends on how you present it. Normally, with boxes that close together, I'd expect them to be a series, but if you have some reason you think they should be individual boxes, then I don't see why you shouldn't be able to present them that way. Are the stamps related, thematically, or do they tell a story? Then I think a series makes more sense. If the stamps are unrelated, or if finding one doesn't depend on finding any of the others, then I think individual boxes can make sense even if they're close together.
