Or better yet, search games based on participant name.

(mostly because I just want to search my previous games to see which had the most spectators)

This is so interesting! Some ODC games have 6-7 spectators and others have only me. How weird!

It's possible they count eliminated participants as "spectators", maybe?

In the next week or two I'll be adding the 3rd section I had in mind to this which will be Search Games by User which I'd intended to take in a UserID or name and show all the finished games you have in common with that person, or show all of your own games if you enter your userID. Allowing it to have the option to just pull all finished games for anyone is a pretty reasonable adaption to that though.

Hi
the page is admittedly much prettier than the previous one, and i really appreciate the possibility of selecting columns and even sorting on a selected column.
But imho the new search capabilities should have been an addition, not a substitution of the old criteria. I mean, maybe i'm loosing something, but i used to search games which were publicly joinable and in a pre-game status, perhaps of a specific variant and surely in a definite phase-length range - how can i perform that search now?

Thanks for any suggestion...

None of the old functionality was removed. Just go search the exact same way you used too.

When i select Search from the Home page i reach an Advanced Search page with options to search by user, by game, or by user's game - i can't see any of the old options. I closed my browser, cleared cache and cookies, etc, but nothing changed :(

I think you used to press "Games" instead. That option is still available.

It's now under the Search tab on the home page too.
