Something which was considered phenomenal 8 years ago, very possibly does not hold up equally on current standards.

Why does the [date added] filter allow you to specify something like ''today'' or ''this week'' when both of those have no value considering you can just scroll down the unfiltered page until you see the first submission to be older than that- But the maximum is 1 year?

I think there should be options for e.g. 3 and 5 years as well.

    specifically want to look at submissions that are 2-3 years old
    Not specifically that timeframe- 3 years old and newer, just like it currently works- You can select the max age of submissions viewed

    What I'm suggesting is to add a larger range (and maybe removing the uselessly short-range ones I mean seriously what is their purpose)
    Or just have two fields where in one you write a number and in the other you select day/week/month/year.

    I have no idea why would you specifically want to look at submissions that are 2-3 years old for no apparent reason.
    There's always the "any time" option that has to be coupled with other filters to get what you want.
    I do agree 5 years might or might not be a nice addition.

    Do you mean the deadline to give a rating?
    No, browsing filters.

    You can apply filters to change the way submissions are presented to you, such as listing them by rating instead of date, only showing submissions rated [X] or above, only displaying submissions from the last [period of time], and several other things

    Like mentioned above, the time period filter is rather lacking.
