HOL quick / basic search

It might make more sense to make the basic / quick search box a 'search all fields' search rather than just searching the game title field, or even a field where you can search over artist, developer and publisher (which often get confused). I think this would certainly be useful from the advanced search screen. What do other people think?

It already does search for game title, artist, developer and publisher. Directly above "Game's name is like:" you can access the other results. I missed it the first time as well...

After much head scratching I have found what you meant. This is quite useful, but is there any way to do a search so that all four sets of search results are combined into a singular sorted display?

One other minor comment is about the separation of the normal search box from the advanced search options. It took a little time to realise that the search box and button at the top of the screen were part of the advanced search - at first I was scratching my head thinking how do I search for a game name='x' and one of the other fields='y' and also wondering where the search button was (if there was one). Also the fact that there are further search options accessed by clicking on the small [+]. This is also a bit unintuituve given that it already looks like you are viewing the advanced search options.

These are certainly minor points but it is a little unusual and could be confusing for those not familiar with HOL.
