Why isn't there a search box for people anymore? Answered

I wanted to search for an Instructables member, and there is no search option for it. I specifically remember that there used to be an option called "People". Now it just says "All, Instructables, Answers, Forum Topics, Groups." I don't know where it went, could someone please explain why it was removed?

The forums are retiring in 2021 and are now closed for new topics and comments.

Somebody felt it was a non-needed search feature and that taking it off would make a "cleaner" looking site.

I miss it since the only to pm someone if to find a post of theirs.

Yeah, but the only problem is, if somebody doesn't have any posts, instructables, topics, etc.(like my brother) , then I have absolutely no way to contact him.

Ask him to send a message to you. Then you'll have a link to him from that message.

 I think that the point is someone decided to make changes to the site that work less well than the previous way...  I have to agree
