Is "orbital launcher" a good candidate for new category?

As every week, I watched new pictures this morning and found the picture #5934099 which is an orbital launcher. I think there should be a category in the advanced search tool to easily find such vehicles. Something like "orbital launcher" (may include space shuttle) or "rocket" (may include sounding rockets) good be a good one.

As I'm not used to features requests on this website, I'd like to know what the community (us) think about it. I think discussions here can bring a better feature request than the one I would have made myself right now.

You're new here. Sounds like it would be a good idea, but there has been almost no development work done on this site in ages. It all goes on a list for the developers, but nothing gets done. All they seem to do is react to stuff that breaks, and that occupies most of their time.

Couldn't agree more.

Unfortunately, yes. And I don't see that changing any time soon.

I literally got a timeout error just trying to post this :banghead:
