# 1 Exchange Interface
08-18-2011, 07:13 AM
Why in the name of all that is holy doesn't the Exchange have better search functionality?
If I'm looking for bridge officers because I want to buy an efficent Saurian, or to train one in Beam Overload III - or to see if anyone has posted one with a taught skill like Gravity Well III - why can't I search for that?

It's ridiculous to have to hover over up to 400 different candidates when there should be a way to go in and search for a particular power or trait.

Being able to put more than 20 items up is great, but not when there is still a limit of 400 results. Market manipulation made easy by posting so many single items that the 250 stacks are no longer shown. I'm looking at you Chronometric Wave Signature. Filtering by quantity or price to avoid this, or show all results.

And of course searching for particular Boff Traits or Skills should be basic.

While I'm glad that taking the lid off of sale limits is kinda nice, it has a series of negative unintended consequences.

1) there's a glut of garbage on the exchange now

2) people are using the sile item exploit to grief players that are doing multiple-stack sales.

I think the number should have simply been doubled from 20 to 40. That would have likely been a good balance.
