It has been suggested to me, that maybe Search feature should be improved to allow searching user by his/hers country, as well as nickname. That would help users with popular nicknames to find their stats.

I'm not sure if I get this right.

Now you search by nickname (=username). What do you want to add to this.

And do you mean one should be able to search on the countryname?

Or a combination of the two?

Combination of two of course.

Example:
If you do exat search for 'Jan' you'll get 10 users from diffirent countrie. Yet 'Jan' is quite a popular nickname, and it is likely, that there are more of them. So if you could search for 'Jan' and 'Poland' it would allow users to find their stats in an easy way.

It's sunday and I left my real brains at work

Maybe I build a 'advanced search' page.

I'd love to see an "advanced" search too, being able to enter anything with any boolean search criteria, position, country, attached projects, number of hosts (for comparison) credit (total and RAC) as well as username/team

prehaps a "language" field too, so that for example "english" covers USA, UK, and autralia, but i'm not sure how well this would work for other countries, probably not that well actually
