Why is there no search post by author?

When I type my name in the search box I see only a few post where people quote me in the body, not even all of them. Only one of the many forum post I have started actually show up and they still exist. I'm not active on here every single day so when I come back after a while, I want to see all the activities/responses to my posts. There is no way to find my posts if I forgot the title or topics over time.

I would like to see how the polls I started did, I would like to see who responded to post I made, I want to be able to look up posts, and find them so I can respond to them... This really cripples long term forum activity and makes it harder for return users. There has to be an easy way to add this. It is a feature that can help everyone!

I feel this subject is ignored or no one cares in the admin department... why?

I agree, that could be very useful. I am a active member here and I sometimes have trouble remembering where i posted

Exactly my point! I just hope a member of power will read this.

This sounds like a stupid Idea... but what if we report your post to a moderator... to get there attention? Then maybe they can do something about it sooner :D

LOL! I wish, but I bet they don't even read reported post, I bet they just get it locked or deleted.

I think there is an actual thread where you can suggest things to do with the site?

Frack! I even lost this post when I closed the window by mistake! I searched my name and this did not show up! Luckily it was still in the "Latest Forum Topics" side bar because it is new and kinda dead right now. If it was active, it would be lost to me...

I tried posting in suggestion threads before but there is so many that I can't find the ones I posted in and I can't find them when I search for them to see responses. Broke system! This needs to be fixed! We need to spread the word! Get people active!

Well this is a popular thread right now, you just have to hope this is seen by others P:

Otherwise, I'll report this.... maybe then we can get results. Truth is, I love the site, but I'm shocked as to how little activity it'll get. P:
I think if they make a few tinkers here and there and even add in a live chat room to groups and stuff, then I could see this place start to boom

Well, in the past, there was that function to find the posts and threads by author. To why they skimmed this off along with other features, I haven't a clue. I could only guess that the "Forums" isn't as sexy, marketable, as they want it to be, so there goes priority for trying to maybe improve it.


I really do think that I should start a "Thread Wish List" for crunchyroll when I'm reading these posts. To how effective it can be, well if maybe we can rally up more people to say that there is some value to the forums then maybe we can get the ball rolling.

I will pass along your suggestion to the development team.

On another note, feel free to pm any of our moderators if you have questions regarding the site.

Thanks for rewriting your suggestion in the Suggestion thread! Will be locking this one up.
