  1. Allow multiple logins from the same computer

    Browsers often seize up and each one has its own characteristics and advantages when viewing the website. It would be useful to open different browsers at the same time to view the site instead of receiving the message: Login failed - user is already in use.

  2. Go back to the old version of the website. Thanks to the meddling of the programers I have lost all my saved articles

    Go back to the old version of the website. Thanks to the meddling of the programers I have lost all my saved articles. Years of research gone in a flash. I am not amused at all. What are we paying these people for? There is no 24 hour technical access to support so on weekends or evenings I can not get any one to look at the problem. Most websites have a 24 hour suport line why not BNA? Cheapskates.

  3. 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. 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.

  6. Date submission of ideas

    Put dates on when ideas were submitted. It's impossible to tell whether something is recent or old.

  7. Search on county

    Improve the search facility so you can select a county of interest and obtain all publications within the county. You may not know the specific place of an event but can often narrow it down to a county.

  11. please consider adding the Kilmarnock Standard

    I enjoy your resource very much, and it helps with my genealogy a lot. I would like to request that you add the Kilmarnock Standard to your list. I've had access to it at the Family History Centre which is located in the Burns Monument Centre, Kilmarnock. I've had the opportunity to look through that newspaper while traveling there, but of course not the kind of access to really research with it. I'd certainly have it with access on the British Newspaper Archive.

  14. Complete issues?

    London Daily News is lacking a lot of pages in 1909. For instance, Sep. 18 has pages 1,3,5,7,9, but not pages 2,4,6,8 etc. Why? Did an external company get paid pr issue? I have worked with 1909 after signing up yesterday, and it is terribly annoying.

  15. Search for a phrase is often ignored

    When I search for a phrase, for example "W. Hunter" to get only hits for "W. Hunter" it is very annoying that I get endless hits for just "W." Can the search engine not be taught to ONLY look for "W. Hunter" ?

  17. Exact searching

    Because words like "and", "of" etc. seem to be used as operators, I often can't use them in the way I'd like. For example, I want to search for the EXACT phrase "The Horse and Hounds". At the moment, I can't see how to do it.
    I would like to be able to search for an EXACT phrase , e.g. "The Horse and Hounds" without

  18. Coventry Graphic

    I should like to see the 'Coventry Graphic' added, from the few samples I have seen, the photographs appear to be good quality.
