I tried to find a mates warwick email address today.
Instead of getting the simple little email search page, I get the entire Warwick website search page with the ‘People’ tab selected. OK then, let’s see if it works…
I’m not sure if his “real name” is Nick or Nicholas (or any other spelling), so I search for “n surname”.
I then see that it’s not just searching for “People”, but also “Web”, “Blogs” and “Exam Papers”. Why on earth would I want to search for my mates email address in exam papers!?
Because the letter ‘n’ generated so many hits in exam papers, my browser cannot cope with the amount of data and promptly crashes.
I try again, using the “Refine Search” option. But can I find a link to email address or similar? No. Nothing remotely related to that.
Why have they changed something simple and useful to something complicated and useless?
IF IT AIN’T BROKE, DON’T FIX IT!
