How do I search a user now by their usename on the app?
1. Put on a shirt.
2. Click on Search (at the top of the page.)
3. Click on UserName Search (near the top of that page.)

|The username search feature is missing from the search section for me as well..oh, and before anyone gives me 'directions' to where it is, I've been there many, many times. BTW.....you go right ahead and keep that shirt off.|

|The user name search is missing for me too.|

BTW.....you go right ahead and keep that shirt off. but please don't come back to the forums crying when your photos get removed by user vote or the site management, just because, you know, it's against the site rules to post shirtless pics.

|You used to be able to search by Username on the website but not on the app. |
I need to be able to find people by Username to use this site, so I complained.
The response? Something canned.
Shortly after complain, today the username search on the regular website disappeared without notice!
They can't be serious!? Now how am I supposed to find a user? I can't!
It makes this site unusable. Absolutely absurd!

|That search is gone for me too.|

|I don't have the user search anymore as well.|
As far as the no shirt photo is concern, there are so many photo violations on the site these days that I don't even bother to report them. There are numerous memes, photos with faces cropped out, scenic views, vehicles, and photos that are too dark due to improper lighting.

|This must surely be another move to force you to pay for Advanced User status...|
Agree, makes using the site almost impossible as a free user...

|It is gone for paid members as well. I was able to use the search Sunday afternoon, then it was gone Sunday night.|

|Yep, Username search has gone for me also. I'm on a laptop. I hope it's a glitch because as someone else has pointed out the site is virtually unusable without that.|
Posted: 7/5/2016 4:41:41 AM
|And there it was - gone.|
I totally fail to see why this makes the site 'unusable'
have a nice day y'all.

|'Virtually' unusable. If you get an email that so-and-so wants to meet you, how do you find them? The link in the email does not take you to them.|

|yeah i was wondering where it went myself..|
not like the people who "want to meet me" are normally genuine profiles anyway

|I am a free user. I used to use it often, but can't seem to do it anymore --- as of today|
Posted: 7/5/2016 10:11:35 AM
|Yep, it's gone on the web, but is still available on the ipad or iphone app.|
Maybe it'll become a paid member feature :shrug:

|More reason not to update the app unless it actually stops working.|
I stopped updating the IOS app when the Android app started reporting "Someone wants to meet you" instead of giving the username. My version of the IOS app still has a username search. On the Android app (which auto updates), this feature is gone. And, of course, it is gone from the web site too.
When was the last time that an update to a POF app or the web site was actually a positive experience?

|You can normally find a user by a Google search. Search for the username and add "pof" to your search criteria. It won't work if the profile is hidden.|

|You're right Gedanken, I've just tried it. Thanks for that.|
Posted: 7/6/2016 6:54:16 AM
|For Meet Me usernames, you could use Add Friend at the bottom of Favorites.|
Posted: 7/6/2016 9:28:39 AM
|Yes, well done Moogatron. That works, just tried it.|
Posted: 7/6/2016 3:23:18 PM
|The user name search is available on the android app if your a paid user if your a free user it isn't.|
Posted: 7/6/2016 7:59:18 PM
|Well I just found this out by accident, if you are logged out of your account the username search is available to use and it worked.|

|I used the username search to circumvent their wanting you to upgrade. I would get an Email saying so and so wants to meet you, then go into user name search and see who they were talking about. THEY"RE ON TO US so, they took it away in the hopes that it would make them more money. remember, they were bought out by MATCH,COM (a paysite)|
