finding users by username?

Postby beej666 » Fri Apr 19, 2013 1:18 am

i got an email letting me know that a certain user handled a problem report i submitted from within the app. i'd like to discuss this with the user, but can't seem to find a reasonable way to find a user by username in this forum. the user's username begins with an "S", but memberlist.php?first_char=s currently lists 5480 pages of users whose usernames begin with "s" and they don't seem to be in a helpful order :(

help?

Try pasting the username into a PM and click the Add button. This works in most cases.

I assume you want to send a PM?
Just type the full username in the provided text entry as it appears and click add. If the user exists, it will accept the name, if not, it will tell you.

Actually this is a good way for users to get in touch with an editor. But us editors would like to be able to get in touch with the users who reported the problem8-)

In the memberlist you can search for the username. Click on "Find Member", The fist link in the line where all the letters are. "Find a member - All - A B C D E....." ;)

We as editors (well in Australia at least) don't know which user did the Update Request. We just get told it's "User Requested".
It would be handy sometimes to have contact the Usre to gain more insight as to the problem (if it's not that obvious to us to fix). Perhaps restrict the access to the Username to a Level 3 and higher AM?

You can simply copy the user name out of the email and paste it into a new PM (click on "# new messages" near the top of the screen).

This is the same for everyone and is based on the current privacy expectations users have when using Waze. We hope this can change again in the future, but what is currently being developed is a way to communicate with the UR submitter via the editor without having to release their username.
