Player Search


Player Search

Ran into this tonight so I figured I would share. Could player search be updated to show the as LastName, FirstName? Example, I was looking for Barry Bonds. I had to choose between Barry and Bobby and didnt know which one would be the correct Bonds to navigate to the player card.

Re: Player Search

Yeah it’s a good point. Wasn’t an issue with the old design because there was no suggested results. I’ll be working on supporting first and last name.

Re: Re: Player Search

I've always wondered how come when searching players to import, you can get 100+ "Smith's" to show up. But certain players don't pop up that are definitely unique named. Like a Pat Neshek for example. Then you have to backdoor search by team/team year. Not griping. Just curious how that happens ? Jesse Crain is another that popped in my head. There's quite a few of them..

Re: Player Search

Crain and Neshek go straight to the player's page under Import for me - what's happening for you?

Re: Re: Player Search

Awesome. I see the update is already out! Thanks!

Re: Player Search

They were the freshest example I could remember, since a few weeks ago, I was working on a Twins dream team for Best of the Rest, and searches for them returned with the same as if you looked up a non-existent player. Nothin'. Lol

Ill try it now for gits and shiggles.

Perhaps in updating some other things, it cleared it up, but it happens with some frequency.. I'd say 1 out of every 15 players may come back with no result.. The next time a guy doesn't pop up, Ill remember to mention it..

Re: Re: Player Search

Found two more examples..

Player Search for Importing :

Isringhausen (Jason) comes back without a match. As does Gregerson (Luke).

Re: Player Search

Type 'Cochrane', no Mickey pops up.

Type 'Olson', nothing comes back...

Same goes for any 'Henderson's'

And 'Jackson'...

And 'Johnson' also comes up with no results.

Re: Re: Player Search

Under Import Players? It definitely works fine for me.

Re: Player Search

And now some of those appear this morning that weren't a few hours ago. Just checking for the hell of it, after seeing your response. I'm definitely not crazy. Was wondering why no results populated.. And now there's results for 'Henderson', 'Johnson', 'Jackson' anyway..

Now I'm talking I entered those last night multiple times in a row, and was getting NOTHING back. (Tossing together an All-Time A's squad for Cooperstown Ten).. Not like it was a spelling issue, connection issue, has anyone else ever experienced this ?

Re: Player Search

I have never seen that and used that feature probably hundreds of times. I’ve never heard anyone else complain either. This is the first I’ve ever heard of it.

Re: Player Search

Jay, when you say “I’m definitely not crazy.” ... I’m just not sure how we’re supposed to take anything else you say seriously after an outrageous statement like that!!

Re: Re: Player Search

I use the feature almost daily. I probably have one of the "fullest" sandboxed on the site w all my Favorite Team concoctions. But it does this sometimes. Where no names at all will come back and Ill have to search by team, then year..

Re: Player Search

Ok maybe this: are you leaving a trailing space at the end of the player's name? I almost never type the entire name because you don't need to. You can type Jackso and get all the Jacksons. But don't leave a space at the end. If that's the issue, I can fix it at a later date.
