    This is a problem I've found on several vbulletin BB's, but since I spend most of my time here....when I try to search for something I've posted in the past (most often, to provide a link to a thread I've participated in), I can't because the "Search by User" box in the "Advanced Search" page only accepts "Chris Fitzgeral" - 15 character limit, I guess*. Is there any easy way to raise this limit by a character or two?

    * Off topic, this is why my username is "Chris F" over at ...

    There isn't a simple setting to change to accept more characters. However, you should be able to search by your name if you just enter "Chris Fitzgeral" and then uncheck the "exact name" checkbox.
