Hey, um, given that we have hundreds of authors in the database, it doesn't really make sense that the Author box in (for instance) the Submit Translation form can only display five lines at a time, does it? It made scrolling through looking for Eien ni Hen the other day when submitting Dark Half more difficult than it needed to be. I can see wanting to keep the listbox small, but I'd argue that it should display at least ten at a time and have the option for downward expansion, like the field I'm currently typing in has! (See the little thing in the lower right hand corner? Yeah, you can use that to make this box bigger!)
You can surely have 10 at a time (changed already), but having an expandable box looks to require framework support that we don't have on the site. Perhaps someone knows of a simpler way to implement and massage into our existing setup?
As mentioned, you can also simply start typing into that field. That's what I usually do.
