prettyfacetay, Sherry is correct. BUT if you know the username of the person you are searching for, you can go to www.google.com and type in the username. It will bring up the persons ask.com profile and you can get to their profile that way :)

Good to know! I just do it the lazy way. hahaha I just follow them when I come across them, if they have been asking/answering questions I find useful. :) I wasn't aware of the google way. Thanks for the tip.

You're welcome :) Something else about that that's sort of scary. If you google a persons ask username, and then click on web, it will bring up every picture they've ever used on here. I don't like that part.

*click on images (not web)

Wow!!!!! Not sure I like that one either. How did you discover that? (about the google search)

Someone along time ago, stole one of my pictures and used it as their profile picture. Freaked me out, and I asked them about it. (They did it as a joke, but it still was not cool). They told me to type my username into google and look at the images, and low and behold every picture I've used was there. I refuse to put any new pictures on here now.

Geesh! I am so glad I found this out!!!!!

I'm glad I found it out when I did. I was updating my picture like once a month then. I won't do it again.

It doesn't work on me, too common a name I guess.

Sherry, when I did it for you, your profile came up. You have to type in SherryA into google. Yours was like the third one down.
Report as
Saw the profile but the pictures didn't come up, the one I have now shows up under images quite a way down the list, but I have used others and those didn't show.
Report as
I can only imagine how somebody feels to be on a website, and all of a sudden see THEIR picture come up with somebody elses name! THAT would freak me out.

Alright, not kidding one bit, just because another user can misunderstand me, doesn't mean they have a clue what they are talking about...
Report as
Just leave her alone.
Report as
I'm seriously trying to, I just have a hard time leaving something unexplained, especially such a huge misunderstanding. I don't understand this at all
Report as
It is easy for people to misunderstand tone or intention on the web, just don't worry about it :)
Report as
I'll try, that's just not how my brain works anymore. Is there no way for a moderator to explain that, because the user isn't willing to listen to me at all

No searching for people, just the list of users you are already following, or following you

Not search for somebody, no. But, you can find people you want to read what they are asking /answering by "following" them. You can do this by checking the "follow" icon, when you come across something they have asked or responded to.

I respectfully disagree. You cannot "search" on ask.com for a username.
