  1. Don't take payments without explicit consent

    Don't automatically sign customers up to monthly subscriptions and have them end this with a fairly well-hidden tick box. It's disingenuous. Be more honest about the payment system.

  3. Northern Echo in the North East

    I would like to see more newspaper coverage for the north east. There is some Northern Echo coverage, but would really value a broader date range.

  4. What have you done with the "show Text" tab

    I cannot find the "show text" tab. I have been using your site for years and loved it. The new improved version is impossible.

  5. 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.

  6. Paper, Browsing and Correction


    1. Oldham Newspapers.

    2. Make it easier to browse a paper. I want to be able to flick through the pages or issues.

    3. Make it easier to correct text. This will then help everyone find what they are looking for. At the moment there is a huge amount of information that can't be found because the text is messed up.

  9. Option to switch 'highlight terms' off per-user

    It would be lovely to be able to have the blue 'highlight' boxes around search terms on images turned OFF by default.

    You could add this as a setting so users could choose if they want it or not.

  13. User experience on Apple iPad with Safari browser is poor

    Browsing the site on an Apple iPad is a terrible user experience. Many problems exist. E.g. Typing this feedback is in a minature box I can hardly see. Scrolling of newspapers is almost impossible. Pinch zoom does not work. Accessing the minute navigation control is almost impossible with my finger touching the wrong control than i intended. Very frustrating!

  14. Stop auto renewing memberships!

    How about sending out a notification that your membership is about to renew automatically? Now that's an idea as the current process of automatically opting people in looks a little like sharp practice from my perspective.

  15. Isle of Wight County Press

    Isle of Wight County Press 1884+. While they do offer their own archive, searching it is horrible. Would love to see it as part of BNA.

  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
