Is there a way to do this? Pretty new to the forum and having some trouble trying to figure the basics stuff out...like how to see your last post in a topic or if anyone quoted you from another topic; things like that.

I usually search for my username in the forums' search bar.

About half of my posts seem to have remained there forever. A number of them also don't show up though, so it's hit-and-miss.

I just tried this right now and it doesn't work. The forum search bar is on the page where you see a bunch of topics and it's that little bar on the top-right corner right?

Searching your user name will only show threads where someone (including you) said your name or quoted you; the search feature looks through the post's content, not the poster.

Look at the link, then look at your name. Now look back to the link, and back to your name...

oh boy...idk if I'm having a slow day or if my IQ is slowly dropping from playing too much video games...lol but I still have no idea how to find posts from a user name. I go to the search bar and I type up my name, nothing comes up. I use the link as a template and replace the username at the end of the url to find old post of whomever I desire...and it works! But why is the first method I use not working? Am I just super blind and can't find the correct search options or something?

Hehe np, I was trying to be clever/funny, but that doesn't come off as well when you're reaaaally tired.

Anyway, the link:
http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/search.php?do=process&showposts=1&exactname=1&sear chuser=Convict24601

Note the 'searchuser=Convict24601" at the end there (I approve of the name btw). Replacing the name with anyone else's name (say 'searchuser=Panzerfaust') will search their name. Unfortunately there's no direct way to click on someone's name... but this works in the interim.

Also, for some reason it likes to break links; the space that shows up there shouldn't be there.

Also also, names are case and whitespace sensitive; 'User' 'Us er' and 'useR' are all different.

yeah, I got your reference. I wasn't too sure if it was leaning towards mean-spirited mockery or a more playful one...but I gave you the benefit of the doubt =) But now I can't tell if you're being sarcastic with my username >_> I swear those numbers I picked aren't entirely random and actually compliments my usernames. Man...I really think I happen to be just be really slooow today....and yeah, I figured out how to replace the name at the end of the link, was hoping if there was a simplier way to search up usernames that I was missing. But I guess this will have to do for now!

Thanks for the patience and help!
