Please Stop Auto-Saving My Searches Topic

I know it's been months since the last time there was a response here to one of these suggestions.  Nonetheless, please indulge my rant:

Thank you for providing a "Save As" option after I run a search. It is a very helpful thing.  I use it when I want to save the search.

When I *don't* want to add a search to my menu list of saved searches, please do not automatically populate it for me with "Search #5", "Seatch #17" etc.  That is not at all helpful for me.  Ever. When I get too many of them, it makes the searches I do want to save fall off the bottom of the list.

I completely agree with this.  If the search functionality was better / easier to us I'd buy more teams.  I also particularly hate that you have to specify both a max and major it ought to be smart enough to auto-fill the one I leave out.

Agree with both
1. If you click "Save As" without entering a save name, it should not be saved. This will stop 95% of accidental saves.
2. Auto-fill the blank field with min or max for that stat.

For those having the auto-save issue, if you physically click on the actual "Search Player Database" button, it will not automatically save the search as "Search #5" or whatever.  This only occurs when you hit the enter button rather than clicking the button.

I agree this should be changed and not saving should be the default.  This is a workaround in the meantime if you want to stop the autosave function from bumping the searches you actually want to save.

Ah, man!  frazz: I've long noticed that sometimes there's an autosave and sometimes not, but I never noticed the click/"Enter" pattern that means there was something I could do about it all along!  This is great to know!
