        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.

              • Show finder comments on clue page

                Baqash

                the finder comments currently can only be seen on the status page. it would be good for comments, like those suggested above, to be seen after the clue on the clue page.

                  • Add comments that are displayed on clue page to clue Export of search results

                    As an app user, I'd like to see the comments included on the clue page that display when the clue owner is inactive to be available to my app so that I can see any comments about changes that should have been made to the clues that were posted by past finders.

                    • Make status more clear

                      In a search results list, let it show more clearly the status ofthe box. faded text indicates archived but that could just mean the planter hasn't been online. have a column to indicate the ok, retired, missing, etc. status so you don't have to open each clue to find out.

                      • 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…

                        • Allow finders to leave a brief comment on all boxes except mysteries, if the planter has been inactive for a set period of time

                          If the planter is long-gone and therefore no longer maintains the clues, a comment field would allow finders to provide clue updates for future finders (for example, if landmarks have changed, or if the box needs maintenance). Not all boxes allow comments.

                                A recent update automatically archives a clue when it has three attempts since the last Find. This could a problem if three letterboxers are hiking together, don't find a box that is actually there and all record their attempt, causing the box to be archived.

                                      • Add a button to re-geocode boxes

                                        Some boxes have a correct city/state but when they were geocoded the map API returned bad results. It would be nice if any user could click a button that would do the geocode again to get better GPS coordinates.
