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.

    • 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…

          • Year of entry is missing from comments

            It seems as though the year has now been removed from comment entries.

            For example:
            phild31 Found 3/13/

            Nice stamp and a nice hide.

            Is there a particular reason for this or is it some sort of bug?

                  I'd like to see which clues I've added to a basket when looking at the search results page. If I click on the icon, it would be great to view the entire clue basket.

                  • Map clue locations in a clue basket

                    Once the basket is put together, if I assigned updated addresses to each, it would be good to be able to hit a feature that maps the basket items.

                              When searching by location, you can use GPS coordinates if you use the latitude and longitude numbers as degrees (not degrees and minutes). For example: 42.6822, -71.1393 or 42 6822 -71 1393

                                  I didn't know what to do. Because there is not a question on your home page "WHAT IS A HITCH HIKER?" with all the other questions you have presented for a beginner to read ( I did read all to be prepared), when I found one I thought WHAT IS THIS FOR?
                                  Fortunately cell service was available in that area. SEARCHED your site and learned what to do; besides being excited there was one. Would a person not knowing leave it? That wouldn't harm anything. Or, someone think it's something to keep bc they have not searched your site/think it's…

                                        • My Member Login page doesn't make it clear that is how you reset your password

                                          That "Edit Member Information" really does not make it clear that the password can be changed there. It just seems that the password needs to be entered in order for a member to change the email address to be used.
