To do a character search using different features? Specifically, I want to do a character search based on the 'First Seen' data. Is there any way this can be achieved?

Sadly no.... With each additional search feature that is added to the database it adds alot of strain to the servers, which are really reaching their max capacity.

Also the first seen date can be a bit inaccurate given how quickly someone lvls and the fact that alot of those players are pretty much test chars to see if they like the class, and then we got forum trolls, and other chars which are pretty much temp chars. Rollie has deleted several thousand of these low lvl chars at one time because they have taken up alot of space and haven't been seen in over a month or two. Plus many view charts, if not all, use only lvl 10 and higher calculations. So someone might of started a couple of days ago but the database never counted them until they were lvl 10

Well thats the best I can do about why there isn't this type of search feature....

The poor servers... they're fighting for their very lives.

Actually I haven't deleted any characters (other than dupes). I still might though, hehe.
