Does Forum search make sense to anyone else?

Is there a secret I missed while I was elsewhere? I can never figure out this forum search anymore.


So I wanted to see if evileagles was still around and searched under member... thus:

Now why the name is not there I have no idea, but when I go to the members and get him he is there, thus:

But alas, when I use forum search after this manner:

it comes up with a list and when I go to those locations i see nuthin'

but I suppose maybe they are in spoilers or credit lists so I use control f and I get nuthin still

please note 0 out of 0 'evil" on this page uppermost right corner (hard to see)

Because when you search the second time, you're not searching for members, but for topics and posts.
And those topics/posts show up, because they have "Evileagles" in them. Just checked Rave Heart and you can find "Evileagles" in the credits section of their OP ;)

As for why he didn't show up the first time, it's probably because the list of memebers with "evil" in their name is very long, so it doesn't show all, unless you actually click on enter.

forum search and member search are two separate databases it seems.

Your forum search for evileagles is looking for any posts where his name was used. If you want to find HIS posts, leave that field blank, and put his name in Posted by Member.

I was also having troubles finding Estriole in the member search a week or so ago.

@Shaz when I try that I usually get spammed by all of the profile postings. Is there a way to avaid that? Old days, you could go to someone's profile and see all of their threads, and posts.

For a long time I always consider XP soundtracks as the best one.
Just listened to some of MZ tracks from the free version.
It's... Quite mindblowing. xD
Only listened to the battles, towns, and fields.
But I'm sure the rest are equally good. :D
What do you guys want to see for the new Jump into Javascript? A continuation of the rpg_objects, or would you prefer a "lesson 0" where I go back to the absolute basics of Javascript and cover the fundamentals of the language and its construction?
Hey RPG members!!

How do you finish projects? Some new game developers start off strong but end up losing momentum. What keeps you motivated while working on new projects?
Feeling wee sleepy.. ZzzZ
So many threads to move to the right place. My post count is awesome, but 95% of it is due to moving things.
