Default Stickers on mailboxes

Hubby and I couldn't help but notice the other day that all the stickers at the St. James mailboxes have all been removed.

Does anyone know what the rules are regarding this? Are they not allowed by TV or have the sticker police come out in the middle of the night and wiped clean all the stickers? Must have taken a bit of time.

Are all the boxes throughout the villages clear of all stickers?

Maybe tonight I will bring my rules and regulations booklet into bed to read.

They cetainly make life easier, without a doubt. Since St James is newer that may be a new restriction. St Charles, as of this evening, is still decorated with stickers, and the like. I recently said that if I have to remember another password or key I'll exceed overload.

Maybe someone complained to the mail police. I do believe they're Post Office property. You can't put stickers on a pst office box in the Post Office.

Would it be "villageish" to break the law?

Wellll, someone wasn't in a good mood when they came possibly from the post office dept and saw the stickers. There weren't too many as this is still a new area and none of them were really that big. Ours mailbox was in the back where you had to go out of your way to see it, at the bottom. It was a "thin blue line". We had special ordered it from an online catalog company. I would rather they had inserted a note in our mailbox telling us that we had to remove the stickers, than to handle it in this manner. That is my opinion.

I'm sure that the Developer is behind this. He has special influence with he Post Office- Everywhere I have ever lived the rule was "don't stick stuff on US Government Property"

Village of Amelia still has stickers as of yesterday. Very messy-looking. I thought the stickers were used by people who rent out their homes but from reading these posts I was wrong. Write the # down on a piece of paper & keep it in your golfcart and/or car.
