It would be very helpful if the ideas were searchable.
I am trying to find an idea that I submitted some time ago and I cannot find it - I searched by my username but only came up with "conversations"
I strongly support this idea of Ontymay's.
I thought I had resolved this issue when I discovered the elaborate search panel available when clicking "Discussions" after a search. But it doesn't do anything that helps me find my old ideas, and I've submitted many. When I select only "Ideas" in that panel, with myself as Author, I get no results, even without narrowing it to Indexing Ideas.
So, successfully searching only the "Suggest an Idea" forum seems to be impossible. At least, I haven't been able to do it. Below, I have a search that I hoped would find all the "Ideas" I had posted ("Authored"). It found nothing. I would appreciate any help on this and support Ontymay's suggestion. Maybe my comment on this will "bump" it to the top momentarily and get some attention. I wish we had Ideas separated by discipline like we used to.
