Since people have trouble on searching specifically for author names and what not, I'm putting up a list of ways you can search LittleBigPlanet.

The terms are from Media Molecule's website: Click here. (http://www.mediamolecule.com/2009/02/25/shiny-new-search-features/#comments)

To search for only a level title, use a $.
Ex: $levelname

To search for exact words, use single quotes. (Only searches levels titles.)
Ex: 'word'

To search for phrases, use double quotes. (Only searches levels titles.)
Ex: "Phrase sentence thing"

Searches can be combined.
Ex: $coollevel @so and so
Ex: 'somewhatcoollevel' @so and so

If this is confusing, then just follow the link that leads to the original (http://www.mediamolecule.com/2009/02/25/shiny-new-search-features/#comments).

It doesn't actually say that "@" looks for the author - might want to add that in there. Then again we can always just look at the original...

What's up with all the ridiculously old news being posted over and over again so much recently? :S

Also, this won't really help you right now in most cases since search is broken.

For some people :p
I personally have never had any problems.

I'm finding it funny that you said that, because when I noticed it was broken, I was searchin "@Syroc" over and over again, looking for A Journey. :p

All I see on the news board is those survival levels, Mm people, and the Gardens levels.
