  1. Daily indication of latest additions

    It would be useful to show every day which years have been added or expanded the previous night, perhaps simply by showing the relevant year date in bold.

  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. What is happening to the WW1 Newspaper count?

    Hi, As an avid researcher I keep a close count of WW1 newspaper availability. These numbers inexplicably seem to be going down on a daily basis - what is going on as I can find no explanation. Thankyou

  6. Freebies

    From time to time Ancestry FMP do give 'Free Access' for a short time. I would like to see this happen with this site...... 'Australian Trove Newspapers' are totally FREE! 1803 - 1954 where i live and is disappointing not in UK.

  8. Future Publication Schedule

    How about posting a schedule of proposed releases of newspapers. I check the site most days for the areas of the country I am most interested in but a prior announcement of forthcoming newspapers would be useful.
