The site could benefit from an advanced search function.

Possible enhancements are:

  1. Combine text with user.
  2. Restricting searches to questions only, or answers only, or search both. etc.

For example, if I wanted to know where Stingray talked about movies, the only options I have are:

  1. Read through all answers by Stingray and search for 'movie', or
  2. Search for all occurrences of 'movie' and see which of them were written by Stingray.

Both are very inefficient.

Thanks.

The site searches are powered by Google so everything that you can do in a Google search, you can do on Inward Quest. There are plenty of resources online explaining what Google searches are capable of. For example: Google Power Tips and Google Proximity Operator

For example, if I wanted to know where Stingray talked about movies

To search for a particular user's involvement in a thread through a question or an answer, search for the phrase:

 "[user]'s gravatar image"

The quotation marks are important. Then you can add in any keywords you are interested in. For your example:

movie "Stingray's gravatar image"

Using the Google proximity operator (AROUND), you could probably narrow the search further to words nearer to the user's question or answer rather than just those that the question thread is themed around.
