      • 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.

        • Nearby Letterbox list should show the target box in the list

          When you click the "Nearby" button on a clue page, it should include that clue at or near the top of the list of results. Currently it is not included.

          • sort my letterboxes alphabetically

            When I view my letterboxes, I have the option to sort by either location or date... it would be nice to sort alphabetically.

            • Handling Restricted Clues

              Suggestions for handling clues that are restricted to logged in members:
              1) if someone uses a direct link to the clue while not logged into LbNA, show a message that the clue is restricted to logged in members.
              2) if someone searches for the LbNA# for a restricted clue while not logged into LbNA, show a message that the clue is restricted.

                I’ve decided to only do part 1. If you try to view a restricted clue (e.g. via a link on AQ) you will see an error explaining that you need to sign up and login to view the clue.

              • Remove Archive button on the clue page

                Now you need to use the Status button with Retired or Missing status to archive your clue.

                      The change is subtle… When you go to the change status page for a box that you’ve rated, you see a highlight on the rating number. To remove a rating, click to clear, enter your find information (type, date) and Submit changes. You can change your rating the same way.

                    • Automatically change the home page images to a new one every day on a random basis.

                      Right now Choi manually picks the home page image every few days. It would be great to have a random image selected every day. Maybe have it NOT random on certain days, like holidays or past events.

                      • Provide a legend for letterbox status summary

                        Can we see a legend of "status"?
                        I've seen "O", "r" & "a". Is there a significance to upper case & lower case letters?
                        Pretty sure "F" means FOUND.

                        • Show recent history of finds and attempts on the clue page

                          Show a condensed summary of recent finds and attempts on the clue page so that if you can quickly see the status of a box. You might want to try for a box if there were a lot of finds and the last as one attempt, whereas if there were several attempts since the last find, you probably won't bother considering it.

                          • 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).

                              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.

                                  • Change the verbage on "Attempts" to "You believe the box MAY be missing or is otherwise inaccessible."

                                    Current verbage is a declaration that you think a box is missing, and I never think a box is missing. It's more accurate to say "I think I MAY be in the correct spot and the box MAY be missing." Also, there are many times a box is just inaccessible - like when 'no trespassing' signs have been posted, or a hurricane went through and there are now 100 trees fallen trees where there used to be one (and the box is under one of them). Even if the box is there, you can't get to it. That deserves an…

                                    • Show finds and attempts on boxes where the owner is no longer active on LBNA

                                      I know that some people choose to have the finds, attempts, and comments on their boxes hidden. However, when an owner is no longer actively participating in letterboxing and cannot be counted on to update clues as needed, I feel that this is an important step in assuring that old letterbox clues stay up to date when landmarks change. By allowing finds and comments to become visible, other LBers can leave notes advising of changes that they noticed when looking for the box. I just went to Colorado and looked for some old letterboxes. I am very concerned that old…
