How do you find a member?

August 1, 2010 at 06:09:32
Specs: N/A
I researched this and can't see how to find a computing.net member.
Is there any way to input the name you are looking for and having the member's user info come up?
Thanks

I'm assuming you know the member name as it is used on computing.net.

This is a round-about (and somewhat ironic) way to get to a user's profile via their member name.

I say ironic since it is you that has a "Google search" How To listed in your profile.

Google something like this:

site:computing.net DerbyDad03

That will bring up some threads that I have posted to. From any of those threads, click on my member name to get to my profile.

thanks for the reply, I appreciate it. I'm just wondering why there isn't a members search box, say I am looking for XpUser4Real...that is what I am basically looking for, a way to find a member and seeing their profile.

Yeah, I knew what you were looking for and trusted that since you said you researched it, it didn't exist...so I tried an "external" approach.

If Justin doesn't answer, I'd PM him and ask.

Hi,

No, this feature doesn't exist. Once you are on a post by a member, you can click his name to see his other posts. I realize that might not be that helpful in this case.

Hi Justin, are you thinking of adding that feature?
Sometimes I just wanna see if the member I'm looking for is still active on computing.net.

XpUser4Real,

No, I'm not really considering at that feature. I will keep it in mind for the future though.

I just thought it would be nice to use, like when looking someone like Jabuck or a few other good helpers up and seeing if they are still around.
