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.

    • Allow search filtering to filter out boxes that haven't been found recently

      It'd be great if search results could be filtered so that boxes that you can filter out (a) boxes were the last record is "attempted but not found," or (b) boxes where the last find is older than a specified date range.

        There is a Member Preference for setting for hold old the last find needs to be before it is ignored. You can override it in the Search for Letterboxes page. It does not currently apply to other listings such as clue baskets.

        Your sign in page isn't secure. Are you going to fix this?

          • Allow member to upload an image file to their clue

            Allow reasonably large image files (up to 1MB) in .jpg, .jpeg or .png format. Automatically resize on clue page to medium size and allow user to click on image to see full size in a new window.

            • Add an icon to show when a clue is in one of your clue baskets

              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.

              • Box dependencies

                Box dependencies (great for bonus boxes and tiered LB hunts). Only show one clue if find posted for another. [SpringChick]

                • 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?

                    • 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.

                      • Add an icon beside the box name on the search pages

                        Put some type of icon beside the box name on the search pages to indicate that you have added a note. I add notes to indicate that I have worked on the clue and it would be so much easier to look at the search page to see which clues still need my attention.

                        • Occasionally display suggestion to donate

                          I'm thinking of a little banner at the top of the page that suggests donating. Other than fund drives, I would only display it for non-members. Or maybe it should only display for non-donators...

                              I would like to be able to ignore a box and have it not show up in search results unless I check a box to see ignored boxes.

                                When a member has their preference set to hide boxes that they have found or ignored and use Export Box Info, then don't include those clues on the exported CSV file. Currently, they are included with Found/Ignored in a column of the export.

                                    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…

                                    • Modify Clue Text Search to allow multiple words with "or" or "and" between them

                                      Currently the Clue Text Search uses all words together as a phrase (e.g. "pirate bird" would return only clues with these words together). I suggest adding option to find clues with "or" (e.g. "pirate" or "bird" would return clues with either of these words in the text) and "and" (e.g. "pirate" and "bird" would return clues with both of these words somewhere in the text not necessarily next to each other).

                                      • Make it easier for a clue owner to mark their box missing or retired

                                        Currently, most clue owners do not use the Change Status page to mark their clues missing or retired. I think that many just don't know that it exists.

                                        • Provide easier way to record finds/attempts

                                          Currently, you have to find the clue page and click the status button to record a find. Then you have to find the next clue page and so on. It would be nice to record multiple finds/attempts from one page.
