      • Provide a rich text editor for clues

        It would be great to copy/paste from word and keep the style markup, or to do bold, etc right in the editor so that you can see what it would look like.

            • please streamline hitchhiker status scroll

              Sometimes it's easier to search the planter's name instead of the hitchhikers name, especially if it starts with the letters ABC. It is cumbersome to scroll thru an alphabetical list of members to register "found" status of hitchhikers. Please allow a typed letter prompt to find member's HH plants.

              • keep doing Tips - even if you just loop them to repeat

                Really like the Tip of the Day :-)

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                        • 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.

                                Most searches return 200 clues max. Sometimes it would be nice to see the next set of clues after that

                                  • Recent donators widget on home page to encourage donations

                                    What if we reworked the home page to have a small area that showed the members that have made the most recent 10 donations? I wouldn't think we would show how much they donated. It could include a link to the full donators list that shows their lifetime total donation level, but not amount (shown on the donation page now).

                                      • Combine some RI counties

                                        From riclimber, "I think the Rhode Island map (county) search would work better if some of the counties were combined. The eastern part of the state only has 4 towns in each county. (Bristol & Newport county)"

                                          [From Ryan]
                                          Nothing mission critical, but before getting the email, I suddenly "remembered" my password, but it doesn't work anymore. I had to use the new password to log in.

After all, someone with a diabolical mind could enter someone else's email address and change their email without permission! (You might have an email, in fact, telling you that YOUR password has recently been changed. *whistling innocently*) Of course, your account is still secure since I don't know the new…
