Memberlist suggestion

Postby Robin S » Mon Mar 24, 2008 2:40 am UTC

Seeing as the memberlist is so large, might it be possible to implement a "Search by ... then by ..." functionality? A minor point, but there has been the odd occasion where I would have found it useful.

On the subject of the memberlist, why are old accounts which never posted (especially the overwhelming majority which only signed up to advertise porn websites etc.) not deleted? It would cut the member database by over half, and if someone created an account with genuine goodwill, never got round to posting with it and then decided months later to return, they could always recreate it.
This is a placeholder until I think of something more creative to put here.

There is an advanced member search:
memberlist.php?mode=searchuser&form=postform&field=username_list&select_single=

I do agree that it would be nice to have a link to it on the Members page. When I need it I get it from the PM "Compose Message" screen. The link is labeled "Find a Member".

EDIT: I am made of a bit of fail, since I looked for and couldn't find the stupid link on the Member page. :(

The Find A Member link is also on the Member List page.

It is there on the member list page on the left.

As for the size ... why would we care? The size of the member database is meaningless to us generally.

I don't know... for me, it's just an aesthetic thing, I guess.

Thanks for the link. Feel free to lock.

Edit: just discovered the link on the memberlist page. It is, in fact, on the right.

It's on the left for me. Perhaps it changes based on which theme you are using.
