Can the search permalinks be made less monstrous?

Recommended Posts

The HWBOT submission search function is really useful when researching hardware, or when talking to people who aren't on hwbot yet but are interested what kind of scores people get with certain platforms, GPU families etc.  Unfortunately the permalinks to search results are colossal - far too big to just post in a chat, and unweildy even for a forum/reddit post.

For example, I was asked if I could try and come up with a list of the best PCI GPUs.  I want to respond with the search results for 3DMark2001SE on PCI GPUs, but this is the permalink:

https://hwbot.org/search/submissions/permalink?applicationId=1&scoreOperator=more_or_equal&score=&username=&regionCode=&countryId=&teamId=&glPointsOperator=more_or_equal&glPoints=&hwPointsOperator=more_or_equal&hwPoints=&compPointsOperator=more_or_equal&compPoints=&globalTeamPowerPointsOperator=more_or_equal&globalTeamPowerPoints=&hardwareTeamPowerPointsOperator=more_or_equal&hardwareTeamPowerPoints=&totalPointsOperator=more_or_equal&totalPoints=&league=&globalRankOperator=less_or_equal&globalRank=&hardwareRankOperator=less_or_equal&hardwareRank=&cpu=&cpuId=&cpuSubFamily=&cpuSubFamilyId=&cpuFamily=&cpuFamilyId=&cpuBatch=&cpuBatchId=&cpuFreqOperator=less_or_equal&cpuFreq=&numberOfProcessors=&cpuSocketId=&cpuCoolingId=&gpu=&gpuId=&gpuFamily=&gpuFamilyId=&gpuBatch=&gpuBatchId=&gpuCoreFreqOperator=more_or_equal&gpuCoreFreq=&gpuShaderFreqOperator=more_or_equal&gpuShaderFreq=&gpuMemFreqOperator=more_or_equal&gpuMemFreq=&numberOfVideocards=&gpuSocketId=104&gpuCoolingId=&mbModel=&mbModelId=&mbChipset=&mbChipsetId=&mbManufacturer=&mbManufacturerId=&mbChipsetBatch=&mbChipsetBatchId=&mbCoolingId=&memType=&memTypeId=&memProduct=&memProductId=&memManufacturer=&memManufacturerId=&memBatch=&memBatchId=&memFreqOperator=more_or_equal&memFreq=&memTCasOperator=more_or_equal&memTCas=&memCoolingId=&psuWattOperator=more_or_equal&psuWatt=&psuProduct=&psuProductId=&psuManufacturer=&psuManufacturerId=&diskCapacityOperator=more_or_equal&diskCapacity=&diskProduct=&diskProductId=&diskManufacturer=&diskManufacturerId=&dateAfter=&dateBefore=&_bestHardware=on&orderBy=score&limit=20&_imageAttached=on&_videoAttached=on&offset=0

It seems to me that most of these are either specifying something that's just the default, or not specifying anything at all.  If we were to cut it down to just the search terms we would get:

https://hwbot.org/search/submissions/permalink?applicationId=1&gpuSocketId=104

This "de-crapified" link already seems to work, but manually cutting everything irrelevant out is a total pain.  Could it not be generated like that in the first place, with empty or default fields (eg "&cpuFreq=") simply not being appended?
