It's not rocket science: OBVIOUSLY, they took away the username search in order to FORCE US to upgrade (pay money to them) if we wish to know who wants to meet us?

I just used the 'username search' to find myself (pathetic, huh? hahaha) and I popped right up. I clicked on the search feature and 'username' was still there....I am not an upgraded member.

(I used to do the same thing you did when I received notification of users who wanted to meet me. It sucks the nifty, little, search by username feature is no longer available, but I know that POF knew exactly what it was doing when it removed this particular "user friendly" feature, & nobody would ever be able to convince me of anything to the contrary.)

How was that possible? On my account and on the accounts of other people who have posted their own bewilderment under this thread there is no longer a box that says username when you click on the search button-that feature, that had been available to POF users for years, is 100% MIA.

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

I clicked right from this forum page, up at the top, on 'search'---basic/advanced/username searches came up to choose from.
I don't use the 'meet me' feature---maybe that is now just for upgraded POFers< You can't see who wants to meet you, so of course can't do a username search on them? IDK

Good luck on your search for love!

POF is now owned by the same company as match.com. (IAC/Interactive) You can count on more restrictions to free accounts.

It is absolutely horrible and not right. I emailed "the man of my dreams" today, but I did not finish my message and my computer shut off. Now, I can no longer find him and I am sick about this. They should at least allow you this option if you pay extra. But, to just stop it without any notification is so wrong...not nice POF. I thought this site really cared about matching people up...guess I was wrong. This site is starting to get a bad reputation, which is no surpirse.

Don't know if this works for everybody but,
When I get an email that somebody is interested, I click on the link below the username, then hit inbox, and paste it in.

but to find that person after I log in, I just search the age and the distance, and it's always right there.
Hope this helps

Actually it's been owned by them for quite some time now. They seem quite happy to just let it keep on keeping on. I guess it's profit-making, so they might as well just leave it be and watch the $$$ come rolling in rather than messing. If it ain't broke, and all that.

There is a 100% FREE username search at http://www.scrapersnbots.com/webtools/plenty-of-fish-username-search.php that actually works better than the POF search when they had it.
