I was wondering if there was any way to search the forum by the username of a specific person, returning all threads that that person authored. What I want to do is go to the Mods and Projects section and search for myself, and get a list of all the threads in there that I've started, regardless of subject. Is there any way to do that?

Or go to the advanced search, type the member's name in the "Search for author" field, select which subforum you want searched (if applicable), check the box for "First post of topics only" and leave the "Search for keywords" field blank. It will return every thread that that member has started in the search subforum.
