Also, I get different search results depending on how specific I make the search, in terms of ranks and grade levels. For example, if I type in "Phaser relay mk xii" while the search parameters are set at "any rank" and "any grade"....I get a different list of very rare grades than when I search using parameters set at "Rear Admiral- Upper level" and grade at "very rare".

The search system is really messed up. Please fix.
Never use the "all" tab, always specify the category, for your example of a phaser relay: console-tactical. The more parameters you set, the better results (rarity- most importantly).
Yes, it is inconvenient, but it doesn't seem they're about to change it.

And yes: Add a filter for KDF/FED specific items. Looking for a KDF purple doff is often a nightmare because of that filter missing...
TOIVA, Toi Vaxx, Toia Vix: Bring in the Allegiance class
Toi'Va, Ti'vath, Toivia: Add Tier 6 staple KDF ship types: Carrier and Bird of prey.
Tae'Va, T'Vaya, To'Var: Give us Asylums for Romulans

Don't make ARC mandatory! Keep it optional only!

Oh yes of course I must be mistaken. Cryptic knows better than the people who use it day in and day out. I must be mistaken.

Never use the "search all" tab. Always try to set the category as specific as possible. If you want to see the lock box ship you posted for example look under the category "reward packs". You should find it there. You may also realize that the cheapest fleet module you can find under "search all" is not the cheapest item when you search under the specific category. The reason you could not sell your items is that you were probably not the best seller.

Yes, we noticed all this. But the exchange is working as intended. Or so they say.
