"Search Users and Boards" Box only Showing Friends


Hi, everyone (long time, no see)!

I've always liked the search-box function, but recently have noticed that, when you type in a username, it only displays the people on your friends list, rather than all Runboard members. It's been like this for around half-a-year and I'm wondering if it can be fixed. Or is it even a bug in the first place, or just some kind of security measure?

It doesn't matter much at all, I just appreciate it for.. research purposes emoticon

Thank you! emoticon

Re: "Search Users and Boards" Box only Showing Friends


Huh. I was just trying to see if this bug was at all erratic and it seemed pretty consistent. BUT when I typed in "ste", it actually came up with people who I'm not friends with. The top result is a user called "Sternum" who joined in February 2003, so it's safe to say that in this case the function worked as it should always work.

I have no idea why there is an exception like this and I just tried to recreate it by typing in "ste", but it said "No results" as it usually does emoticon

Any ideas?

Re:


I just tried it and on the first three tries only got friends. Then I tried "ste" and got no results, so I tried "stern" and got 5 results that I don't know. One was "Sternum". The first 3 tries, I only typed in 2 letters.

Thanks for the tests, Susa emoticon Sounds like an all-around glitch then!

Re: "Search Users and Boards" Box only Showing Friends


I did some testing just now, and my results were like Susa's. Sometimes results would come up with 3 letters, and sometimes it took 6.

Strangely, when I typed in only a 'q', I got 5 boards and 5 people, including our friend, Queeny. However, as soon as I typed in a 'u' after the 'q', Queeny was the only person to show up, and there were no boards listed, even though the 5 that were previously listed all have a 'u' after the 'q'.

When I typed in 'qu' and clicked on the magnifying glass, it gave me 10 boards, but Queeny was still the only person showing.
