  4. Fulfill your obligations

    Of covering each and every area not just certain flavour of the month regions, we still lack real in depth coverage in the South West(Bristol, Plymouth, Exeter), South Wales(Cardiff, Swansea, Newport), South Coast(Portsmouth, Brighton, Bournemouth, Southampton, Torquay), South and East Anglia(Swindon, Oxford, Luton, Norwich, Watford, East London, Ipswich), East
    Mids(Leicester, Nottingham, Derby, Northampton), West Mids(Stoke on Trent, Wolverhampton, Walsall, West Bromwich) Yorkshire(Leeds, Barnsley, Huddersfield, Hull, Middlesbrough, Sheffield) and Lancs region(Manchester, Burnley, Blackpool, Preston, Wigan, Oldham, Blackburn, Carlisle)
    im need of radical overhauls.

  5. Focus your attentions away from Ireland and Middlesex

    This is called the British Newspaper Archive, not simply the Irish and Middlesex Archive, please apply my thought process into other large regions found lacking on the paper coverage, Bristol, Portsmouth, Cardiff, Nottingham, Sheffield, Norwich, Luton, Preston, Stoke on Trent, Hull, Manchester, Leicester are crying out for more substantial offerings now it the time to oblige your customers

  6. Let customers know which papers can be obtained and which

    Are out of reach due to
    Copywrite, loss of years or poor quality microfilms available or any other issues which may result in certain papers not being acquired.

    Could be important for
    Votes to know which papers have a good chance of being added.

  7. 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    Stoke Sentinel and Leicester Mercury holdings as they are looking a little tired and outdated, nothing like a quick spruce up will have them gleaming once again with newer fresher titles added

  11. Add more East London papers to the vault

    Plenty of papers to mull over few examples being the East London Advertiser, Stratford Express, Southwark News, Newham Recorder, Ilford Recorder, Barking and Dagenham Post and Deptford and Peckham Mercury would
    stem the tide.

    Thank you

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. Add whole regions one by one

    Would take time but for example you could spend a month uploading London papers, or East Midlands, South Wales, Lancashire etc

  18. Thank you, BNA

    Have just been reading the suggestions for improvement and have added one of my own, but I would like also to say thank you for this amazing website and all the work that has made it possible. It is a godsend for researchers. I cannot understand why here in Canada we cannot provide the same resource to researchers. We have far fewer newspapers — and far less history! So thank you, Britain, for creating the BNA.

  19. Suggestion page

    The same newspaper appears under multiple titles. Check out the Stratford Express, produced in West Ham. It appears as The Stratford Express, Stratford Express, etc. Hope this does not affect vote counting because I really need that newspaper!
