      Hi The Hnats! You live in Warwick, RI don't you? I see lots of boxes found or planted in the last year or so there. Yes, it would be simple to search and archive boxes not found or planted since 2009. You also have the option to set a preference to "Only show recently found letterboxes." Have you checked that out?

        This means breaking down series clues into individually named boxes, each with their own status, as is done on AtlastQuest.

          Help me understand the process for this. Would it start with the planter clicking a button to invite others to replace missing boxes? Or would it start by people clicking a button to volunteer to carve missing stamps, then waiting for approval from the clue owner?

              I like the idea of encouraging people to find boxes that haven't been found it a while -- maybe a year. Not sure what to do on the website... I could keep track of when people report a find when the previous find was over a year old, but what then? Show a badge of some kind in Member Search? Put a rank with or without numbers on the home page? Give out a patch to the highest members at the end of the summer?

              Types of short term events - brainstorming, not decided
              - Find a Mystery
              - Find an Archived Box
              - National Plant a Letterbox Day
              - Plant a Tribute to another Boxer
              - Snow Find
              - Cemetery Find
              - Indoor Find

              Having a variety of short term events makes sense. However, I'm not sure having a patch reward will work from the time and cost involved.

              We'd need to brainstorm on the event types and how the counting is done. The simplest thing is to enter an event code in the status comments when reporting a find.

              No worries. If I confused you, I probably confused others as well. ;)

              I'm not talking about scoring boxes here. I mean things like 1 point for reporting a find on a box that hasn't been found for 6 months. Scoring would let me make a leader list for the home page to show what member is the "best treasure hunter". I probably wouldn't ever show the number. We could give members the option of displaying an icon by their member name to show their achievement level.

                                  Thanks Nairon. I guess I never felt that AQ had an exclusive club feel. There are certainly members that are more active on the boards, so they have a larger voice in the community, but it doesn't strike me as a us vs them situation. As it stand today, some clues aren't listed on LbNA because it doesn't allow any restriction on clues, but I guess a casual user wouldn't be able to notice that.

                                  I 100% support your right to letterbox discreetly by not recording any of your finds. There is also a long tradition of planters being discreet about who get's their clues; originally this was by making them Word of Mouth clues.

                                  AdminJohn Chapman (Product Owner, LbNA) commented  · 

                                  I think that members are expressing a reasonable need to hide clues from newbie letterboxers that might not take as much care with them as more experienced letterboxers. Recording finds is something that we want to encourage on LbNA and if members learn that there may be "rewards" of new clues available as they record more finds, then they may be more likely to record those finds.
