Hi, I notice some time ago that this option isn’t available anymore.
I think it was a very useful feature, don’t you think? If you want just to hear whats new from a particular user and you forgot the user’s link, you don’t have an option to find him.
As far as I remember, user search wasn’t that great – if you didn’t know the user’s name, you still came up empty back then.
Of course, there’s Google to the rescue, as always + you can follow and bookmark here.
But I know what you mean, just spent about an hour to find something that I was sure I bookmarked (and I had, but the item was removed). Forgot user name, item name… found via Google, eventually.
Open a forum thread and in the “search forums” box enter this:
Then when you get “no results”, you’ll be presented with a drop down where you can select “users”.
