using the search for member in private messaging

Post by Bendy Kitty » Sun Jan 02, 2011 8:28 pm

ok, i know if i can find a post by a person I can PM them from there, but I can't always find posts.
So, I wanted to PM someone and used the "find a username" function. Except I couldn't get it to work. I tried the browse by letter, but the list that was displayed for the letter I selected was not sorted in any way, certainly not alphabetically, and I could not find a way to sort it.
I tried the 'search for user name' well, i could only remember the first half of the user name and apparently the search function looks for exact matches only so it wasn't any help.

is there a way we can make this more useful? even having the search by letter pull up a sorted list would be a big improvement.

thanks

Bendy

If you use the browse by letter function, and click a letter, you can sort the list by clicking 'USERNAME". Try hovering over "USERNAME" with your mouse and I think you'll see what I'm talking about. Please let me know if that still doesn't do it...
