    There should be a hitscraper like thing that goes through all the quals that are up and you can hide authors so it's easier to request quals on your days off. Sitting here and sifting through (currently) 100020 Results by hand is a bit of a chore. Especially since there was almost 200 pages from one author for the most random numbers.

    It seems pretty futile to search for qualifications this way, since most of the quals on the qual page are old and not used anymore, exclude quals, or aren't available by request.

    Would there be a better way to look for qualifications currently then? Just go through current posted hits and do those that require them?

    Exactly. That is really the best way.

    :yesyes:

    Probably 90% of the things on the Qual tab are old, junk, or internal only. Most of the remaining aren't going to be requestable, even if they are active.
