    I was hoping that 'one of you' might be able to tell me if it is possible (and how it might be possible) to move a corroded box once it has been locked down in one's house? (I am unable to highlight the box, it is currently locked down)

    Thank you for your patience.

    If the box is currently locked down and you cannot highlight it, its stuck.. you will still be able, however, to unlock the box but not move it. If you unlock you can axe it, also if you unlock it will disappear after sever down/up. If you can live with the place its stuck just keep it and make sure its locked down. But no there is no way now to retrieve it.. A GM will just tell you to axe it.. this happens with the gold metal boxes from time to time aswell.

    While it is probably apparent to most players, just thought I would add in that if you axe it, it will be destroyed. Wouldn't want someone to do that unintentionally.

    Thank you for all the replys, I am grateful to all of you whom have been able to reply. I have followed the advice of Bazer and turned the box and now it is possible to move it!

    *wishes she'd known the turning trick*

    I actually managed *shock* to get a GM to come and remove mine. And much as I'd like it out on display with all my other wee doodads in my Yew house, it's tucked away safely in storage and there it will stay!
