  1. Make Archived Box Search the Defaul

    Please consider making archived box search the default instead of the option. When looking for a box whose name I know, I usually end up doing it twice. If it doesn't come up the first time, then I have to go back to check the archived boxes because I always forget to hit that button. Or, give us the option of choosing one or the other as a preference.

      • Ignore a Planter

        Allow the ability to ignore a planter. Every summer a local library places a large number of clues for boxes which are set up for kids to find and take an impression of a metal plate. See GO and Build a Better World! - LbNA # 71431 as an example. Their clues clutter up my searches by county and although I could change their status to ignore, there are a lot of boxes and it would take a while. I would just prefer to be able to ignore this planter each summer. Thank you.

        • remove any letterbox that has not been found or placed in a year.

          I'm searching and there are a lot of clues but all from 2009 or earlier and none found past 2009. I have no idea if I'll find anything when we get there and it is out of state. I think this can be a simple task by creating a search and auto archiving all those that meet the found date or placed date as noted. I think this can clean up your database immensely and also help those looking for active letterboxes.

            • ALSO show most recent date FOUND by COUNTY in a separate list, as so many are out of service

              Newbies get discouraged by wading through so many which are no longer extant.

                • Make custom locations searchable

                  If a custom location is added for a mystery box, for example, it would be great if this custom location turned up in your subsequent search results.

                      • Share a clue basket with another member

                        Allow them to view and print but not change the basket. Perhaps a separate list on the same page where I view my baskets.

                        • Improve Map to Display Clues by Continent Instead of Just Other International

                          Even though LBNA is mainly for North America, it does have letterboxes in other countries and it would be nice if those could be broken out at least by continent.

                          • Extend the custom location feature on a clue

                            Extend the custom location feature on a clue. 1) I would like to be able to reset any/all location fields (street, city, county, state). And, 2) the corresponding/updated GPS location should be adjusted for me only and returned in the results csv as well as used on the website.

                            • Special Events

                              The idea is to promote finding less active letterboxes through special events. We need to think about what to call it and what rules to adopt for scoring... at least to start. We can always adapt the rules iteratively.

                                  • Allow easy import of boxes already listed in AQ

                                    There are a large number of boxes listed on AQ which are not on LBNA. It would be nice to be able to import everything for the listing on LBNA by entering the box number on AQ (or link) and have LBNA automatically populate the listing. This would save a lot of time in listing boxes twice.

                                    I typically list a large number of boxes at once for events and it's a lot of work. Having to put them on two sites manually is a just more work and not worth it to me since the majority of people are…
