Lots of people think the 'search' bar doesn't work when they try to search the name of a user here to find the account. The truth is, it works just fine...but you have to know how to use it. To find the account of...oh...let's say GoAskAlex_Admin: #1: Type GoAskAlex_Admin in the search bar #2: Click 'enter' on your keyboard This will take you to another page. On that page, look to the left: #3: Click 'user search' That will take you to yet another page. #4: Scroll down to find the user Yeah, it's complicated...but it does work. You just have to realize how to do it. *This concludes today's 'myLot 101' lesson*

I've had many people that have been here for quite some time that don't understand how it works, they simply don't see it on the first page and say it doesn't work.
