    Sorry if this is a n00b question, but I can't figure out how to search by artist using FA's search: Search -- Fur Affinity [dot] net

    Maybe it's one of the @ things, but I dunno. It's not at all obvious.

    Indeed, it is one of the @ things. ;) Use @lower and the username of the artist as it appears in the URL of their profile.

    @lower quotingmungo for instance will search for content posted by me on my primary account. :)

    Why @lower? Why not @artist or something?

    I dunno, I didn't write the search function. Probably because it's the normalized lowercase version of the artist name, in the database, or something like that.
