      Yup, an advanced search form is on the to-do list :) We’ve recently reworked the search engine code so that it’s less fundamentally tied to the idea of text-based queries, so form-based search will be much more feasible in the future.

      I like a lot about this design: even though we’d need to support more fields, keeping some of the most common fields always in view seems reasonable—though it might have to do with how the rest of the search form interface pans out.

      The design is too wide, though: we must be able to support fullscreen for at least 99% of our users, but only 75% have a screen at least 1366 pixels wide—that either means that a quarter of our users would have to use a horizontal scrollbar (bad), or that the pet preview would have to be scaled down even further (also bad). Search will therefore stay…

      You could do a responsive site really easily with CSS, it's a lot less complicated than you'd think.

      Also, maybe it's just me, but the Species:Techo type searches aren't working for me. It' just still searching everything

        It’s actually not 9, exactly. It’s the number of items that will fit on one line given your current window size. More than one line would start getting clunky and take up more space than is feasible, right?

        Actually, the first day that the new site design went live, it wasn’t the magic fullscreen thing we see now. Instead, there was a scrollbar, and scrolling down from the preview section would reveal a good 4 lines of items for a total of 28. However, users complained that they preferred the fullscreen style so as to avoid excessive scrolling, so we adjusted the design to match users’ preferences.

        So, I like the idea of being able to view more items at once, but I’m not sure how that would be feasible while still maintaining a reasonable amount of screen real estate for the preview itself. Any thoughts on that? :/

        I've made a mockup of how I would lay the site out. I would much prefer this as you could scroll though items, see more at one time, not have to wait for them to load each time, and still see the preview. I know that this wouldn't work on some resolutions, probably anything smaller than mine, but mines not even that big, so I think it's doable.

        I also did a little to the search, because I find myself typing "species:dissdfksd is:pb" and "species:dfgdsf -is:nc" over and over again, it would be much easier with checkboxes and drop downs.

        Let me know what you think.
