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".
(thinking…)

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.

  1. Add a field in the search results when letterboxes are lost or missing

    Currently, when you are searching for letterboxes, all but the archived boxes show up, leaving the impression that it is an active box.

    Adding a field in the search box will flag us viewiers when a box is lost/missing/inactive.

    • Fix the letterbox search so it recognizes any city, state and returns all boxes near there.

      Currently, the top search option where you can type in a city, state or zip code, doesn't always recognize the place you enter and says "Sorry, but I don't understand that location. Error Type:". Also, if it does return clues, it may leave some out that should be included.

      • Do not make COUNTY a required field when adding a letterbox

        When I am in towns away from home I have no idea what county I am in. Could that info be auto-populated when you enter city and state, or just let you skip over it completely?

            • Fix problem with new clues with a new Location

              When you put in a location name (address, park name, etc.) that hasn't previously been used in LbNA, you'll see a strange error when you save and then no one will be able to find it using location based searches but will be able to find it by city, county, or state.

              • Printer friendly clues

                It would be nice to have printer friendly clues. Maybe a printer icon you click on to pull up a b&w page with text only.
                This would be useful to tablet users as well.

                • Ability to add comment only in clue Change Status page

                  Any chance on gaining the ability to log comments without also logging a find or attempt? Two scenarios I run into:

                  1. There are a couple local boxes that aren't mine that I will on occasion take a look at to see if they're OK. Planters are far away or not active. If the box hasn't been found in a long time, it would be nice to just note that the box is OK without recording it as my find. (Unless it's changed, in the past if I logged it as a find, LbNA automatically removes my original find date).

                      • Hide/Show archived boxes in My Letterboxes

                        When I click on 'My Letterboxes' I would like to be able to check/uncheck a box that says 'show archived boxes.' I have a lot of archived boxes and sometimes I'd rather have just the short list of active boxes. [SpringChick]

                            When you find an archived box or are the third one to report an attempt, the archive status is automatically updated. It would be nice to include this change in the statue change email to the clue owner

                                    • List of "starred" clues to remember to look at

                                      I would love it if there was a way to put a box number or title or clue in a save folder. Or to star them and then be able to hit a button that says See all Stars and call up that list. AQ has a Watch option, and an icon for "look for" but even that is not as user friendly as it could be because you can't pull them up as a request. You only see it if you do a search in an area and those boxes will show your icon or eyeball. I want a…
