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 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.

        • provide option to announce new clue on facebook

          Perhaps have a button that is available after successfully adding or editing a clue that will put a link to the clue on the members facebook timeline.

          • Add a link to Letterboxing Info labels

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

                    • Icon on search results for highly recommended clue

                      Shows a thumbs up icon on the left edge of a clue that is highly recommended. There are very few at this time because the recommendation option was only recently added to the box status page. You need to have Location Results enabled to get the extra detail in search results. If you'd like to see an example, view Needham, MA.

                          We currently have linkes to LbNA Chatter and AQ Home, so it would be good to add the yahoo group to see if that can get going again.

                            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

                              Should go to the right of search by location. Partial name OK. Standard search results. This is useful when logging a find since you probably wrote down the clue name.

                                      This is a little controversial, but I'm adding a widget to the home page to list the most recommended clues. If you hate this idea, please let me know and tell me why. You recommend the clue using the Status button. If you have already found a clue and what to add the recommendation, click the circle for the recommendation level, then reenter the date and type for your status. You old one will be replaced with the new status plus rating (even if the rest of the status info is exactly the same). You cannot tell who has give…
