Six fields is a lot to fill in at once.  Couldn't it overwhelm the end user?  
UserInput is one of the few panels that can occur multiple times.  Why not 
use 2 or 3 different instances of it instead of putting them all in one 

Also, I've never gotten the search field to work properly.  Are you just 
typing in names, or are you using the auto-search button?
