IT IS WORKING, after a bit of trouble shooting I figured it out..

JUST LOG OUT!

or if you use chrome browser or chrome book (like me)

hit control N, which opens an 'incognito' web tab, meaning there is NO NEED to log out, which makes it easier to do the username search (DO NOT LOG IN, haha) and once you get the (real and imagined user that wants to meet you but rarely answers), you can go back to you open logged in browser, and paste the person's URL and respond to them.

a) log out
b) do a user name search, it works
c) copy their POF web page
d) paste it, and log in, and send them a message, with prob 8% chance or 1% chance they will respond, as probably a marketing scam to get people to upgrade.*

or a) control N in chrome browser
b) copy and paste that member's web user profile address (mostly they are fake or silly as do not respond)
c) go back to the open browser that is still logged in and paste it and respond (while wondering why waste time on silly people who send you know message and look very hot, haha)


*A scam because you must upgrade to see 'who wants to meet you" but not a scam to use 'user name search', as upgraded member cannot use it either; unless you do what I tell you too!

**A scam as it brings you back to the site... ;)

;)

still it is easy and works... just log out..

it does not work logged in!

cheers

I just solved the mystery: If you LOG OUT of your account you are able to search by username-I just did it.

This is not news. It's been like this for ages. Just log out and you can search from http://www.pof.com/basicusersearch.aspx
