I don't CARE what their name is! I care about their profession! Make that the searchable part.
Whomever thought that we'd want to search by Doff name needs to be fired for 'crime against humanity' level of stupidity.
When they first rolled out the Doff system on Tribble and they had this non-functioning Request Duty Officers tab, I always figured they'd get their own exchange, and that was where it would be.
Because that would've been the good idea.
The ingame Exchange needs a lot of work even apart from this. Someone might be selling a stack of 250 rare particle traces for 100 credits each (25000 total) but we'd never know cause there's 400 single traces posted at 10000 a piece, after which the exchange goes uhhh derp!
