[78-L] oyVey has made a change effective today

Not quite sure what you mean - here in the UK my saved search is for "78 rpm records" (minus inverted commas) and this turns up several hundred "newly listed" each day (I only search for UK listings).
I thought you might mean individual artists searches but the following turned up just 78 rpm Bing Crosby records (an arbitary choice I assure everyone!)  :
"Bing Crosby" 78 rpm records     When I save the search it remains exactly the same i.e. "78 rpm records" doesn't become "records".
Like others, I too miss the wild card option.
