Change member sorting on "quick search members"


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm getting quite annoyed about how the sorting of members seems to be the same type as other searches, it shouldn't in my honest opinion.

When I search for TSP in "Members"-section for example I basicly get these on the top 3. Why? I have no idea. Do you search their signatures and other fields aswell? That doesn't really help a lot when you're not telling me what it's matching anyway, so I don't see the advantages with that...

Then later on in the search results I start getting results like:

May you please explain why you think people are interested in finding random members with display names that somewhere in them match the combination of letters provided in the search field?

Then, finally, in the middle of page 2 I find myself:

In most cases when I search in the members section I want to find the profile to the member that have a display name that matches what I write in the search and not some random other users who in some obscure or unexplained way matches my search.

In my opinion the members that have the same first letters as the search term should be displayed first, and members with the search term in the end of the display name next. Then you could continue to show it like todays sorting.
So it would be like this:
*todays search ordering*

TSP is just an example, I've been annoyed about this when trying to find lots of other members.
