Is there a way to search my favorites for comments I have favorited by a specific user? [more inside]
Can we search our favorites by user name? If not, can we get that feature added? [more inside]
On the change to the search function re: usernames... [more inside]
In the absence of a known user ID, how can I locate the profile of a particular lurker? This person has absolutely no posting/commenting history that I know of, and I've tried all of the search mechanisms for their username. Apologies in advance if I'm missing something obvious!
I used to be able to lookup user pages by user name, with the URL "http://www.metafilter.com/username.mefi/mathowie" but now, when I put that in, it resolves to "http://www.metafilter.com/user/1" I know this has been mentioned before, but I can't find the discussion; is there any way to lookup a user's page if you only know their user name (and not their user number), and you can't find a comment they made (in order to just click on their name)?
While I'm at it, I'd love to see a users page that would include the list from the members link on the 'powered by' bar, the 'search by user name' think Matt put together recently, and also a seach by username. What other ideas can y'all add.
