Parameters for "find a member" look-up for new PM's

Postby t4mcr53s2 on Tue May 21, 2013 6:40 pm

when i haven't friended teammate and misspelled name I have to go back to games :
  • xxxxxxx

can 1st letter list be alphabetic rather than by date joined? can the look up give a list of names with the first few characters, eg kinga found give a list of everyone with those first 5 letters:
  • xxxxxxx

easier to email all teammates when they aren't your regular guys .. currently need letters exactly right for look up :
  • xxxxxxx

thanks for listening .. only worth doing if its pretty easy fix I think :)

You can always use the Scoreboard to search for people...

But, I do see some merit of allowing you to search for partial names in Game Finder.

Using a wildcard for partial names exists in the "find a member" function for PMs, and I don't see why we shouldn't have it also for Game Finder. The other stuff may well be too small to be worth the effort, but if we're improving it all at one time we can consider it.

Agreed here. If I remember, I'll try to note it on trello. Mets, feel free to beat me to the punch.
