There are so many players in the game, and the Top Players list is 50 per page, so it can take a while to find someone. I suggest a search filter on the player list.

For example, I know there's a player called birq or birp or birg or something like that, so I click on Top Players and ctrl-F to search for "bir". If I don't find him on the first page, I have to go to the bottom and click "Next Page" and do the same thing. There are, what, 30? 35 pages of players?

I would like to go to the Top Players page (maybe just call it "Players") and type "bir" in a search box and get a list back of all the players with "bir" somewhere in their name.

Yeah i've sometimes been busy for 10 minutes trying to find someone.
I think it's not there because if you open the user database in google earth, it's very easy.
But I'd love an option like that on the page too.

Those were both about sorting, with search mentioned along the way. I wanted there to be a thread just about search so it didn't get lost or overlooked.

Yeah, sorting's kind of meaningless. So you can see part of the A's and the Z's. ;-)
