Ideas

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Investigate/Correct Search Oddities

    I've noticed a couple of oddities regarding searches:

    1.) Member searches, as well as clue-based and other text-based searches seem to have trouble with special characters - apostrophes, ampersands and the like.

    2.) Not sure how else to mention this without a specific example, and not sure if this is indicative of a more pervasive issue, but check out this clue: http://letterboxing.org/BoxView.php?boxnum=36426 . A location-based search of Eastford, CT does not show this series, neither does a direct search by letterbox name. Even a search by LbNA number does not turn up this box in a search. However, if I…

      • 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.

              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…

                                          A lot of the things on the site work by forms and if you use the back button, it doesn't just redisplay the previous page, but gives kind of an error page asking that you confirm your resubmission. It would be nice to avoid that.
