  1. Historical Boxes

    Designate somehow in the box title the oldest boxes in an area for historical references, i.e. "There's something noteworthy about this box planted by one of the earliest boxers in your state" kind of thing.

            • Use the back key in browser without asking to confirm resubmission

              A lot of the things on the site work by forms and if you use the back button, it doesn't just redisplay the previous page, but gives kind of an error page asking that you confirm your resubmission. It would be nice to avoid that.

                • Volunteer to recarve missing stamps

                  [Forwarded] I suggest you add a button on retired boxes so the owners can choose a volunteer carver to replace missing stamps. There are already so many great boxes with pre-written clues that are only missing one or two stamps of a six part series. That way, boxes can be put back in circulation by local people. I have looked on LbNA's adoptable list, but it's difficult to know how long these have been lost. It's much more common to search boxes by area & find many more in need of repair. A button would get a quicker response from…

                  • Provide a rich text editor for clues

                    It would be great to copy/paste from word and keep the style markup, or to do bold, etc right in the editor so that you can see what it would look like.

                      • please streamline hitchhiker status scroll

                        Sometimes it's easier to search the planter's name instead of the hitchhikers name, especially if it starts with the letters ABC. It is cumbersome to scroll thru an alphabetical list of members to register "found" status of hitchhikers. Please allow a typed letter prompt to find member's HH plants.

                        • Wiki-style FAQ

                          I think that it would be useful to have the ability for any member to add or update FAQ items, as is done on AQ.

                          • Allow box restrictions

                            As at AQ - allow sensitive boxes to be restricted to number of plants or finds recorded, in such a way that the very existence of the box cannot be seen unless the criteria are met. I have some large series restricted on AQ that are not listed on LbNA for that reason. ~Trailhead Tessie

                                    • Recent donators widget on home page to encourage donations

                                      What if we reworked the home page to have a small area that showed the members that have made the most recent 10 donations? I wouldn't think we would show how much they donated. It could include a link to the full donators list that shows their lifetime total donation level, but not amount (shown on the donation page now).

                                        • Combine some RI counties

                                          From riclimber, "I think the Rhode Island map (county) search would work better if some of the counties were combined. The eastern part of the state only has 4 towns in each county. (Bristol & Newport county)"
