Totally understand why feature was removed in the first place because of harassment and whatnot but just wish it was a little easier. But that may be because I was bulk looking for names and not a single name XD.
My suggestion would be to add an option to search only for names starting with a specific letter.
The process is still manual and relatively tedious to deter people but if you're looking up multiple names, it will make your life a little easier.
If we do bring back name search in its entirety, then perhaps stricter policies on asking for not for sale names or things like that? That would cause people to be more considerate about their rmails.
Someone said that people go straight to rmail once they find a name instead of looking in the sr to see if it's for sale or not. If there are bigger consequences, then people would be more likely to thoroughly check before inquiring.
If this is the case, then there should also be an indication somewhere on the pet in the showroom about which category it's in. Because if you search for names in a showroom, it doesn't tell you anywhere which category the pet belongs to.
