I hope Advanced Search will be coming back
As a long-time user who's fatigued by the multiple overhauls, I have to say my allegiance is waning at the moment - that's not a threat, just a fact, as it's just not that fun to read/write on the site right now. I presume I'll stick around, if at a decreased level of participation, but it'd be nice if some of the things that I actually thought were IMPROVEMENTs from revamp#1 would be retained in revamp#2. The advanced search feature was great as it made it easy to track the history of commentary on my favorite topics, the posts of my favorite writers, etc. The feature would be especially appreciated right now, when a lot of what's currently going on is, for me, not so tantalizing, since the constant changes seem to have driven off some of my favorite contributors. At least with advanced search I'd be able to plumb the archives in a satisfying way.
