Search their names. If they left and kept their account open, you can see where they last posted. But if they show as guest, you're out of luck in seeing their profile..

Yeah, you're probably right... I thought it'd be something super simple that would serve the entire forum/forums/website, but I seem to be the only person who thinks so. Everyone just posts wherever they want. Apparently.

I was on a gaming forum that had an "I'm leaving/I'm back" thread, and it was VERY useful. Coming to a place that doesn't have one is kind of like driving an automatic then trying to drive a stick-shift Stanley steamer. Okay, those are cool, actually.

The biggest reason I think one would be nice is because, after coming back from an unintended absence of two years (can't believe it was two years!), I was really wondering what happened to certain people I used to be friends with. I won't mention names, but certain people I was really fond of are no longer here, and when you see their names on posts, it says, "guest." This makes me a little sad! It'd be nice to see if they left a goodbye post somewhere, and why they left.

Anyway, I'm officially giving up. Thanks though!

Hi, Ugly :) A little disorganization on the forums is not a good argument for not having organization on the forums :)

When I was new, I used the introduction thread... when I needed tech help, I used the tech help thread. People do use them :)
I never claimed people didn't. I stated, with six years on this site, that Often people do not.
And we already have organization on this site. Pointing out the fact that it is so often ignored is not making an "excuse" for disorganization. It is pointing out that people already ignore the existing organization, so adding more won't help.

Really if you're going to respond to things at least respond to what's said, rather than twisting words to better suit your interests. Speaks poorly of you to behave in such a manner, no matter how many smiley faces you mask it with.

I have sent Ugly an PM to discuss this in private. Apparently there was a misunderstanding.

Joefizz, did you really "like" what Ugly said? Perhaps I will send you a PM as well, it seems as if we have had a couple of misunderstandings here.
