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.

  1. 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.

    • Separate user preference for hiding Found and Ignored letterboxes

      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.

      • 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.

        • What's New by State

          It would be nice to see what's new by "state". Living in a state that is not as large as others would be nice to see a complete list of the last so many new plants. Not a fan of searches by counties or regions because I don't know them. It means I have to google it. Counties don't show up on google/bing maps when I try to find out where they are or what they are near. It's much easier to do a radius search because I already know the area I want to target.

            • Shorten About Letterboxing Widget on Home page

              On iPhone and iPad the About Letterboxing widget displays as a long column. Shorten so that it works better for iOS.

              • hover over map marker in search results always says Unknown Accuracy

                This is bug. It knows the accuracy category because the marker is a different color.

                • Add a link to Letterboxing Info labels

                  Letterboxes should include something to identify them and tell people how to get more info.

                      I'll try to build up the Knowlegebase on letterboxing.uservoice.com a bit then replace the menu item to point to the new stuff.

                        • Change box status when clue owner updates status

                          The Status button on a clue page allows the owner to set the status to OK, Missing, or Retired, however this doesn't currently do anything to the clue archive/active status. OK should make the clue active, and Missing or Retired should archive the clue to hide it from standard searches.

                                      This would be collected when recording a find or attempt. It would probably also display there once it has been set. Likely show the number of ratings and the Net Promoter Score.

                                      A clue with a few ratings and a high NPS might get an icon on search results.

                                    • Add a picture caption to the home page

                                      A little caption to let you know about the LbNA home background picture would be nice.

                                      • Remove state entries at bottom of region selection list in WhatsNew

                                        NeedClues wrote "Under NEW LETTERBOXES in the drop down box. I never noticed it before, but are the states at tail end of the drop down list (i.e. CT_Connecticut, MA_Massachusetts, etc.) new? No new boxes show up for these specific states, even though there ARE new boxes if I choose ALL REGIONS."

                                        This is a bug.
