    I used to check for responses to my posts by using the User Name Search function. Safari saved the names I searched for (mine plus a few others I looked up at some time or another) and gave me a little drop down box with my searches. I liked this a lot. Now I get a drop down, but with what seems like every user. I'm assuming this is some php thing with the vBulletin update. Does this bother anyone else?

    on the front page of the forums, in the member list, you're (not YOU but person logged in is) listed first. That's how I always check mine.

    what's this member search you speak of? It may be easier to do..

    Click on Search --> Advanced search. Fill in the member name under "user name" and click search. Make sure you have it set on posts, not threads.

    Your way works well when searching for my posts. Not very well when searching for posts by others. I just like having the box remember my searches, not every user.
