  1. More newspapers covering South Wales

    There are too few newspapers covering South Wales, including Newport and the old county of Monmouthshire. The South Wales Argus would be a great addition to the BNA online.

  2. Fix The Siging Up Page

    It has proved impossible this week to sign up to a month's subscription. Having filled in credit card details I am returned to the sign up page. Despite sending an email at the beginning of the week no one has bother to reply. Disappointing

  5. Allow unlimited number of votes, please!

    Why do you charge* customers for participating in the feedback process?
    NEVER have I encountered a situation -- until now -- where a company restricts, in ANY way, its customers ability to give feedback.
    I hope you will rethink the merits of this policy and do away with this practice (if for no other reason than it makes good business sense to make customer satisfaction your number one priority!)
    Thank you for your attention in this matter.
    Sincerely,
    Sam, who now has only "7 votes left!"

    *I say "charge" because you will deduct 3 VOTES from my "account" -- which…

  7. The Athletic News year 1888

    The years 1888-1898 are essential for me. I hope that at least the year 1888 will be available soon and I can continue my studies without delay.

  8. Viewer bug with touch screen and Chrome browser

    There is a fault with the BNA page viewer when running in Chrome (60.0.3112.101 64-bit ) in Windows 10 (1703 Creators Update) on a machine with a touch screen (Dell XPS 15-9560). Instead of the initial "Desktop view" with floating cross-bar navigator, the view immediately switches into the full-screen view, but with the "Back" "Desktop View" "Full page view" "Zoom in" and "Zoom out" buttons instead of the full floating crossbar navigator. It is possible to zoom in with the zoom button, or by double-tapping on the touch screen, but the image cannot be panned using the mouse, only the…

  9. Birmingham Weekly Post

    Would it be possible to include Birmingham Weekly Post on the BNA website?
    My great-great grandmother wrote stories that were published in this paper!

  10. Allow searching for items on a specific date across a range of years

    Allow searching for items on a specific date (e.g. April 1st, Christmas Day etc.) or a range of dates (e.g. Jan 1-Jan 31), in conjunction with the existing year filters.

  12. Honor Your Promotions - 3 Free pages

    When you have a promotion ie:
    sign in and get 3 pages for free before 7 may 2108

    It would be nice if this actually happened
    And it would be nice if you answered emails quering that it has happened..

    If you are going to run a promotion - Honor it.....

    I am still not able to see 3 free pages

  14. Make it easy to see other editions of the same paper, from the search result you are reading

    Quite often a story will be reported most thoroughly in a particular paper. So when I'm reading (say) Tuesday's edition (via the search), I can scroll between different pages for Tuesday, but it's not possible to easily see Monday or Wednesday's edition. I have to come right back out and browse through the newspapers, browse through the years, browse through the months, browse through the days! It's surely unnecessary? That would be a great improvement.

  15. 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

  16. have the option for people to earn more 'free' articles for doing the work of rewriting the gibberish that often comes up in the auto scan

    It would be great if you had an option for people to 'earn' more free access for doing the work of re-transcribing the scanned articles, many of which are not just slightly inaccurate but total gibberish.

    You could have an easy system (they do this on Wikipedia, for instance) where there is a list of articles that need to be properly transcribed and users just go through them to earn 'points' that can be converted into access. (So, for e.g. transcribe 3 articles, get access to 3 more pages etc). You would just need to check the first few to…

  18. A Timeline, simple base line of world/UK event dates occurring at, or near the atricle date

    Place the articles in some kind of timeline, a simple baseline graph idea would help I suppose. I don't have a plan but whenever I find an article concerning an ancestor it would help to picture the time he was living in - who was on the throne, world action concerning Britain etc.

  19. Incresase limits on page views.

    "Unlimited" access to the site turns out to be just 3000 page views per month. Really not a lot when researching. At an average of 100 page views per day this could mean being able to view just half a dozen - or less - newspapers per day. Hardly unlimited, is it?
