  5. Start adding the papers the public are voting for

    You do a great job of covering the lengths and depths of this island but I cannot see the reasoning behind some of your nominated papers whilst overlooking major and popular papers from large industrial cities and districts which offer so much history and stories to tell, whilst not saying London or Manchester papers are more worthy than small villages in Scotland surely the public votes for certain papers should be deemed worth enough of being added

  6. Too many Scottish titles and little else presently

    I’m all for covering every region but not at the expense of ignoring whole regions is it not possible to add titles from Yorkshire, Wales, East Anglia, Manchester, Midlands as well as your Scottish ones it’s very frustrating playing the waiting game

  7. More Scottish papers what joy

    And very little else the past few months shame really as there are so many places worth looking at Oxford, Portsmouth, Norwich, Sheffield, Middlesbrough or Nottingham etc etc yet you focus only on small towns on Scotland’s coast

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  13. Supposed to be a British archive

    Sick to death of obscure old Scottish items, should be renamed the Scottish newspaper archive.I don't think they pay any attention to the forum site, very disappointing and not worth a subscription.

  14. Please add the papers with the most votes ?

    These are enough votes to warrant you adding the Wolverhampton Express and Star yet it continues to be looked over in favour of yet more Scottish or London based papers highly repetitive and needs looking at

  15. 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

    Being able to export a list of the newspaper articles returned by a search with links to an excel spreadsheet would be very useful

  17. 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

  18. Allow searches to be specified using "regular expressions"

    Please allow searches to be specified using "regular expressions".
    This is where the user specifies a pattern to look for rather than a fixed strings. This means that the user doesn't have to keep submitting searches for the same thing.
    For example.
    I'm looking for Henry Boot.
    The problem is that "o" can look like o,a,s,0,c. "y" can look like y and v. etc (I'll keep it simple..)
    Searching for him could result is searches for:
    Henry Boot
    Henry Boat
    Henry Bost
    Henry Boct
    Henry Baat
    Henry Baat
    etc etc. Lots of separate searches.

    However, a rexex search to achieve…

  19. Missing search items

    Why is it that sometimes when I do a search I can't find the item in the results?

    For instance I searched for the the phrase "Nantwich Union" in 1825 and got this result:
    https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/search/results/1820-01-01/1829-12-31?basicsearch=%22nantwich%20union%22%20&phrasesearch=nantwich%20union&exactsearch=false&retrievecountrycounts=false&sortorder=score

    but the term Nantwich Union doesn't appear in the result:
    https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/viewer/bl/0000389/18250614/005/0001
