I agree 100%. Part of the erason I stopped actively developing public searches for DQSD was that it was near impossible to get changes to the site. I'm not a publicity hound, but I do like to have my efforts published when I devote my time to something like this. The current site is very "early 21st century", so is lacking a lot of features that should be available on most current sites.
