If someone searches for "LOGO" for instance, it will return dozens of titles from different categories, spread across multiple pages. What's the exact order you propose?
If the advanced search had metacategories like Game and Utility, and perhaps also Adventure Game/Arcade Game/etc, would that help, Juan?

The DB structure wouldn't need to change for this, but the UI would need to do slightly more complicated query compositing.

Yes, the advanced search might be a solution.

@Juan F. Ramirez

As promised I have built a query to show titles of under three characters.

Posting in this thread as it mentioned the A-Z bar/strip of software titles being added.

Just wondering when the numbers bar/strip is going to be added. Be it a # or 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9.

Would the A-Z bar be better placed directly under the Home, Forum, Updates, Releases, Help, Contacts boxes.
Currently, it requires a scroll of the screen to make the A-Z bar/strip visible.

Mock-up version with replaced A-Z bar: 1920x1050 screen
