  7. Add more East London papers to the vault

    Plenty of papers to mull over few examples being the East London Advertiser, Stratford Express, Southwark News, Newham Recorder, Ilford Recorder, Barking and Dagenham Post and Deptford and Peckham Mercury would
    stem the tide.

    Thank you

  8. Fulfill your obligations

    Of covering each and every area not just certain flavour of the month regions, we still lack real in depth coverage in the South West(Bristol, Plymouth, Exeter), South Wales(Cardiff, Swansea, Newport), South Coast(Portsmouth, Brighton, Bournemouth, Southampton, Torquay), South and East Anglia(Swindon, Oxford, Luton, Norwich, Watford, East London, Ipswich), East
    Mids(Leicester, Nottingham, Derby, Northampton), West Mids(Stoke on Trent, Wolverhampton, Walsall, West Bromwich) Yorkshire(Leeds, Barnsley, Huddersfield, Hull, Middlesbrough, Sheffield) and Lancs region(Manchester, Burnley, Blackpool, Preston, Wigan, Oldham, Blackburn, Carlisle)
    im need of radical overhauls.

  9. Focus your attentions away from Ireland and Middlesex

    This is called the British Newspaper Archive, not simply the Irish and Middlesex Archive, please apply my thought process into other large regions found lacking on the paper coverage, Bristol, Portsmouth, Cardiff, Nottingham, Sheffield, Norwich, Luton, Preston, Stoke on Trent, Hull, Manchester, Leicester are crying out for more substantial offerings now it the time to oblige your customers

  10. Stoke sentinel

    Stoke Sentinel please update this far too much emphasis on appeasing Irish newspapers on this site, they only make up a small part of Britain

  14. Let customers know which papers can be obtained and which

    Are out of reach due to
    Copywrite, loss of years or poor quality microfilms available or any other issues which may result in certain papers not being acquired.

    Could be important for
    Votes to know which papers have a good chance of being added.

  15. Not more Middlesex?

    Tiresome
    Unimaginative
    And considering lots of areas are currently underdeveloped ie Yorkshire, South Wales and South West, South Coast, East London and East Mids is a smack in the face to many loyal subscribers!!

  17. Rejuvenate your records for the Nottingham Post, Derby Telegraph

    Stoke Sentinel and Leicester Mercury holdings as they are looking a little tired and outdated, nothing like a quick spruce up will have them gleaming once again with newer fresher titles added

  19. More Welsh papers post 1950

    South Wales Echo, Evening Post, Evening Argus, Western Mail or Wrexham Leader fit the bill for equality as Ireland seems to have precedence on here currently

  20. Stop adding every Irish and Middlesex titles

    For the last six months these two areas have dominated the proceedings give Yorkshire papers more airtime very frustrating
