  1. Exact search is inexact

    Get 'exact match' to work as expected. At present, a search for 'John Beare' may return occurrences of 'bear', 'bearing', etc., and also show 'John' and 'Beare' when they occur separately rather than together.

  2. Make sure uploaded papers don't disappear

    I notice that previous feedback refers to the falling number of newspapers available during the WWI period. I have had a similar problem today, in that one previously accessed newspaper (London Daily News, 22.08.1891) appears to have completely vanished from your site. I accessed it on the 24th February this year, but because the quality of the downloaded PDF was not great (another minor gripe), I wanted to check the original, to no avail.

    Can you clarify whether or not vanishing newspapers are a common problem? Is it just your database being temperamental, or are certain uploads only temporary? Thanks…

  3. Volunteers

    There are (understandably) a lot of errors in the text. Allow volunteers to proof read transcriptions and compare to the image for errors. To ensure this isn't used to bypass subscription you can randomly generate which pages are proof read.

  4. Improve usability and navigation

    I tried to give you feedback but the text box for feedback is so tiny I resorted to screenshots in a PDF file to demonstrate.

    Although I love the content on this site and am happy to pay for the digitization of new papers, the usability of this site needs improvement.

  6. Ability to correct article sections, eg split, exclude, merge

    When editing, I often find the selected "article" in fact includes multiple unconnected texts on the page. If I am going to help edit as I go anyway, I would rather I could fix this by eg, marking a line as being the end of an article, or not in the article at all when the selected texts are not related? Similarly, the ability to add by marking as part of the article when not currently selected. The thee common situations I see are: selected text continues past end of actual article (a split feature would help here); select text…

  7. Allow changing page in fullscreen

    Currently, when looking through an issue of a publication, it is a process (once the issue is found) of: click on page, click fullscreen, go back to standard screen; select another page, click fullscreen, go back to standard screen; and so on.
    This could be: click on first page, click fullscreen, click or scroll to next page.

  11. Resolution should match the page your viewing

    When you download the file, the resolution automatically is reduced making small text unreadable. Please correct this so that downloaded pdfs match the viewer

  14. Ability to select part of a page to save

    If you want to save a specific article, it would helpful if you could select just that part of the page to save. By enlarging the relevant section on screen and then saving just that part, the quality of the image is much better than if you save the whole page and then try to edit the resultant pdf file. I have tried making screen clips using OneNote and this is reasonably successful, but you end up with several individual files and these need to be stitched together to make on file.

  15. 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

  18. What has happened to what was a user friendly site,now almost impossible to use???

    What has happened to what was once a perfectly usable site?? I am finding it virtually impossible to find any information and it has now become a nightmare to use. I certainly won't be renewing my subscription if this is the new way of doing things as it is just an utter waste of valuable time.

  19. Search within a saved (bookmarked) page

    I have a lot of saved pages but when I review them often I can't find any highlighted search term on the page. On some pages the original search term blue box is still there which saves a lot of time finding the part of the page I need. I find myself taking a lot of screen shots and filing elsewhere, which shouldn't be necessary.
