  1. Abstain from adding every Middlesex title please

    Do we really need every small town in Middlesex having widescale coverage over the likes of the Manchester Evening News, Leeds Yorkshire Evening Post, Sheffield Star, Nottingham Post, Bristol Post, South Wales Echo, Stoke Sentinel, Plymouth Herald or the Bradford Telegraph and Argus all much larger communities in dire need of having a revamp? Question your logic one or two papers fine, but the incessant need to add every paper from the area means we are very underwhelmed in other regions.

  4. Add whole regions one by one

    Would take time but for example you could spend a month uploading London papers, or East Midlands, South Wales, Lancashire etc

  5. Thank you, BNA

    Have just been reading the suggestions for improvement and have added one of my own, but I would like also to say thank you for this amazing website and all the work that has made it possible. It is a godsend for researchers. I cannot understand why here in Canada we cannot provide the same resource to researchers. We have far fewer newspapers — and far less history! So thank you, Britain, for creating the BNA.

  6. Suggestion page

    The same newspaper appears under multiple titles. Check out the Stratford Express, produced in West Ham. It appears as The Stratford Express, Stratford Express, etc. Hope this does not affect vote counting because I really need that newspaper!

  9. Make payments clear. I paid the fee, having contacted you. Now it seems the money has mot been taken I thought I had sorted this out

    I thought I had paid but you have not taken the money even though I sorted it out with you. Try communicating - a good idea for a site that deals in communication

  11. Facility to view blue highlighted searched-for text on downloaded images

    It would be helpful to be able to easily find - in a downloaded image - the text/words searched for originally. Once a document is downloaded, there is no means of "re-searching" for the particular text.

  12. lists of newspapers

    it would be great to be able to have a downloadable version of the list of newspapers available digitally at a particular point. That way, I can keep track of how comprehensive my search was at the time I conducted it - making it easier to report on the limitations of my search.
    I mean the list here - https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/titles I've just spent some time taking screenshots of the full list! (around 40 separate screenshots!)

  15. Download a full newspaper

    Could you make it possible to download a complete edition of a newspaper in one go rather than having to download each individual page?

  20. This is one of the most awkward frustratiing sites Ihave ever used.

    Why can you not simply type in a Title of a Paper and a date and get that paper ? Simple.
