Oddity in searching

An apparent oddity - if I search for my user name (Advanced search screen, no other entry beyond user name), I get all the threads to which I have contributed EXCEPT a thread that I started.

Is this expected behavior?

TIA

ETA: perhaps the forum is not updating as per usual ... at this moment, this thread, another in Rifle I originated and another (also Rifle) that I contributed to aren't coming up in the search.

The answer to your first question... there's a drop box right below the name-- it offers options for "Find Posts By User" (the default) and "Find Threads Started By User".

I can't answer the second part of your question...

Yep - except logically "posts by user" should include "threads started by user" - the latter is a subset of the former.

ETA: Interesting ... this thread now shows but the one I began in Rifles about 20 minutes earlier this afternoon STILL does not show up...search by user posts OR by user threads started. Search on the title however "Mauser pricing" and it does appear.

If a mod bumps into this and can shed some light, the thread is ...
