I am in a lot of ATC swaps. I have saved old envies from what I have rec'd so I don't have to ask for addresses again and again. Yet, sometimes, I misplace an envie and need to search for the provided address in my rec'd PMs. I will type in person's name and get either nothing or something unrelated. Then I must spend half an hour 'manually' searching thru my PMs to find them, and yup, there they are, when the search should have found them.
I am making sure to type in correctly, such as capitalization and such.
What gives? Has been going on for years for me. Just realized I had the opportunity to complain...  Smiley

I have the same problem.  Trying to search for almost anything on Craftster has always been a problem for me.

Are you searching for their username? Is their username actually IN the PM? (Just trying to get a sense of what's happening!)

Have you all tried again recently? We've made some changes that I think are for the better. Smiley

Yes, I am searching for their username. Either in the message or a message from them. Often I get results that show their name in the message, but none actually from them, which is what I want.

Well, the search is going to look for whatever you put in the search box inside the PMs, it's not going to look at who sent it and whether or not that matches your search term. If you know you're looking for a message from someone in particular and you know what label it's under, you can sort by sender, and that can help you find it. Smiley
