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

Yes, that is correct.

I got the same results as you did: it did not work in the People search. 8~(

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.

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?
