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. 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…

        Sometimes the most recommended boxes are retired, but we can still celebrate them!

        • 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.

          • Add a picture caption to the home page

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

            • What's New Sort Order

              Currently, the sort order for What's New is by placement date. This works OK until someone comes back from a 2 week vacation where they planted a bunch of boxes and lists them all at once. The Most Recently Listed widget on the home page is sorted by the clue's LbNA #. Should they be the same?

                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.

                • Add Search by Letterbox Name to Home Page

                  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.

                  • Most Recommended Clues Widget on Home Page

                    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…

                        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.

                        AQ created a message board for LbNA discussions. Add a link to get to it from LbNA.

                                  • 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. [Suggested by Needclues]

                                      Under Travelers - could you list "my travelers" like you list "my letterboxes" under Letterboxes.

                                      Under Letterboxes - could you give the last date found like you do under the Travelers. Or never if it hasn't been found.

                                        • 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.
