I'm missing the letterbits a-z for the memberlist in order to search by letter
Hmm, true. To be honest, now that I think about it, I've never really used a member list all that often anyway. And, even when I have, I've just used the "Search Members".Question .. if you didn't find it, do you need it? And that's the whole point.
And I think when I use it it is about finding a user, typing in their name will help me find them.
Yeah, looking at the member list again, I see "Find Member" (I love the username suggestion btw, and the "popup" you get when clicking on a username). Which for me, would be enough to make A-Z unnecessary.Yeah, we actually debated about the members list. It kinda just appeared early in dev as we needed a way to get to profiles. I think having "most x" pages are probably useful, but I'm not sure how much additional filtering is necessary.
On a massive board, the whole members list, even with A-Z links, is a) useless and b) a big performance hit.
Across what could be hundreds of pages?It's not that big of an issue with me. If I need to know whether someone's online I can just Ctrl + F... not sure what other reason this'd warrant alphabetising the memberlist.
