Posting on the Boards often will get a moderator's attention for a query like this. If you don't have a moderator contact you or respond in some fashion, you can send a request to remove a subaccount to Ryan or Wassa - they will help I am sure :)

Happy Sunday!

Is there a way to do a People search with a partial name that I don't know the first part of? Like ______ Boxer? Using an * with at the beginning of the name or something?

If you search for boxer, then you will get a list of all if the people whose trail name starts with boxer.

boxer b
boxer buds
boxer gang
etc.

I hope that helps.

If I understand correctly, the poster is looking for a way to search where you know part of the name, not necessarily the beginning. For example, you know the name contains "boxer", but starts with something else, such as "Happy Boxer" or "We are Boxers".

Someone just showed me how to do it if you're searching box names (in the name search box, include --^--boxer), but it doesn't seem to work in the People search (at least not in my quick 2 minutes of trying).

Here's more info

Click NEXT to the People tab in the brown/yellow area. It will bring up a page; upper left will be a 'browse member' tab. An alphabetical listing of all AQ members.

I think after a year or so, AQ eventually gives up checking a blog if it has no activity. If you go to your blog listing on AQ, however, and click the "Update" button, it'll force an update and restart the clock.

Which I've already done on your blog so you're good to go. But if there's ever a blog post that isn't showing up, a good kick of the "Update" button should fix the problem.

The day's hiking is over--beat the rain, thunder, lightning and hail--and I'm hanging out in the middle of a desert in a bedouin tent wondering how the heck I'm actually getting a wifi connection. It's magic....

And if someone told me that someday I'd be hiking through a desert in Jordan carrying a toilet seat, I'd tell them they were crazy. But it happened. *nodding*

But, you can always post what you have on the boards. Someone here might be able to help. We love a good puzzle.

Oh, thank you for the offer. But this is kind of a negative thing re: the people I'm searching for, so I don't want to go public with it. (And it doesn't include the word "boxer" in the name.)

It doesn't happen to be a search for something including "amatta_u", right? RIGHT? right?

Lost Clue -- Help?

I started to list a clue. I went away from my mobile device. When I came back to finish the last details, the page refreshed itself and went back to where I choose the type of clue. Is there somewhere that the clue that I started to type is still hanging out? If so, how can I find it? Thank you in advance for any potential direction.

Not sure about being able to retrieve it, but I have had this happen to me also.( I wonder if this is peculiar to mobile devices only...hummm???)
So I have done 2 things to help safeguard my postings.
#1 if I have to go away from device, I copy it to clipboard (as in copy/paste). #2 I write my clues out longhand before posting, also to work out any details (making sure everything is clear, all details are in order, etc...)

Hate this happened. But, I am interested to see if someone knows how to get it back. Good question!

I agree that there is not much that can be done now to retrieve it (but then again I’m not that computer savvy).

I’ll echo the above comments and say it’s a good practice to copy occasionally when composing any long compositions on the computer.

Actually, I’ll frequently usually use a word program to compose those types of things and then paste them into the final document.

Sorry to hear, I know how frustrating those things can be.
