PAL (International Plant a Letterbox) Day 2019

Today boxes can be listed on AtlasQuest to be counted as part of tomorrow's PAL event. To be counted by the widget the plant date needs to be changed to May 24 and there must be no restrictions on the box. This year, for once, my letterbox plant for PAL day will count for my home state.

Not even a restriction to "Everybody"?

Exactly--the restriction box must be none or the widget won't count it. That being said, some of my PAL boxes in the past have not been widget worthy.

I planted 3 but one was a bonus box - ugh - so one of them won't count?

If you put a restriction on it by using the dependency feature, the widget won't count it as part of a state's total. That's the exact same reason some of my past PAL boxes haven't counted. But it will count in the PAL Day total. That's okay because I love bonus boxes more than PAL Day boxes on the widget.

Iowa has two on the list, plus one bonus ~ guess which one! That's all for me today, but there may be someone else out there planting right now.

It updates immediately. It wasn't being counted because you didn't follow the rules.

I went ahead and fixed the listing so it complies, but it won't count unless all of those rules pass.

So I can forewarn people next year, which rule did you violate?
