How do I search for one user's posts?

Specifically, I was looking for revdolphin's tongue twister challenge. A couple of days ago, I put "revdolphin" in the search box & it came up with a list of his posts. Now it comes up with no matches. Thanks for your help.

Can you explain what happens when you do the search? There's a slight delay when you finish typing before we initiate the search - if you wait for ~1 second the search results should show up. When I search for "revdolphin" get 41 results.

I'm at the main "Discussion" screen (the one that pops up when you hit the Discussion tab). In the search box, I type "revdolphin" and press the enter key. It returns 0 results no matter how long I wait.

Just went back to test some more. No matter what I type, including "interview" it comes back with 0 results (even though "interview with luis..." is right there in the list. Using firefox 26, if that helps at all. So, it's not just a matter of looking for a user's name; it looks like searches aren't working for me at all here.

Just checked on the "troubleshooting" discussion - search doesn't work there for me either. confusing.

41 results? Is that 41 posts I've made or 41 mentions of me in posts. Either way, I had no idea I was that prolific.

@Ricaloca, there's a link to the last week's challenge in this one: http://www.duolingo.com/comment/1541088

And yes, Ricaloca, you were one of the winners. 3 lingots.

That is 41 posts you were mentioned in. It should be fixed now.

do we have a similar problem now? when I search for a user name, I find posts with that username mentioned, but not the posts made by that user.

I was wondering what the next challenge might be. I had fun, and thanks for the lingots!

Currently, puns (see the link above). I was planning poetry for next week, but I was preempted by ihascookie174 ( http://www.duolingo.com/comment/1551256 ), so I think I'll put that one off a bit and move to the next one on my list.
