Need some help :)

Is it possible to look up members on CM by email address? I can't seem to find my friends whom I know have an account here but don't know their screen names and when I do a "name search", I get nothing..

Any ideas?

  • have you tried typing it in here all different ways... capital the first letter, or small letter?

  • I don't think you can cuz that can be set on private to avoid unwanted emails.

  • Look on your friends list on your home page. That will give you all of their names.

  • No it is not possible to search for someone by email on CM. Why not ask them there SN next time you talk to them?

  • ^^^ Unlike facebook you can't search by email. I think it's a good thing myself. That should be private.

    You could try clicking invite friends at the top of the page and sending out invites by email address then in the message let them know you are here and would like to friend up.

  • Yes, Airforce3mom, I'm sure they are on here... the way I found out is I sent an "invite" to join CM to the moms I am friends with by the email address invitations and a few of them got kicked back because they "Already have an account on CM"....

    And thanks plclemo... totally not what I was asking, but thanks for contributing.

    So, thanks ladies :) I just guess CM doesn't make it easy to find pre-existing friends... have to go with itsallaboutthem84's answer and just ask them.

  • Try looking by where she lives.

  • It's probably just easier to ask your friends their screen name and send them a invite on here.
