The Member Search function does a substring search on the nick name, and is limited to ~100 results. The result is that if you're searching for a particular person with a very short name, it's basically impossible to find them (for an example of this, try to look up Ra's profile). If would be nice if we could request the search to only attempt an exact match.

Hrm, that is exactly the profile I was trying to find when I discovered the problem. Are you trying to find out why the two of you are on programwizard's "friends" list? [wink]

I tried this too (ended up just using the search box on the upper right of the page)
