Question regarding Perl Monks User Search and Q&A postings

Honorable sirs, forgive me if this question taxes thine time unnecessarily, for I am but an egg, but stumped.

A relative newbie to the site, I found the user information in my home node (that is the term for it?) an interesting way to keep track of things I had posted, and as a way to learn, by watching the responses to the same items from others.

A few days ago, I decided to be brave and look at posts in the Q&A section of the site. I responded to one answer already present, then found a posting which I felt brave enough to attempt an answer (or portion thereof). I was quite preplexed when the posting exists, but did not show up in my user search, and was wondering why this might be, or if perhaps I had somehow caused it to not appear.

This issue may have been asked before, but I was unable to find it if so. Therefore, sirs, I beseech thee, take pity on one so new and grant me a portion of wisdom and knowledge, or grant me direction that I might find the light to make clarity of my darkness and banish this confusion from me. What wisdom and knowledge you may choose to share with a new one such as I would be received with great appreciation.

    Thou art well and truely allowed to ponder this mystery, for it doth delve verily unto the very bowels of the Everything system; forsooth, it hath stumped many a monk. But hark! Hearken thou unto the truths which the great monk tye doth speak of, in yonder post, that thou shoudst find enlightenment.

    My tongue hurts.

    perl -pe '"I lo*`+$^X$\"$]!$/"=~m%(.*)%s;$_=$1;y^`+*^e v^#$&V"+@( NO CARRIER'

      Oh, but I said it better here. (:

              - tye (but my friends call me "Tye")

    For some reason QA nodes have an author_user of "QandAEditors" instead of the handle of the person who actually posted. This is dealt with differently on different pages, which leads to the inconsistancies that you've noticed.

    The XML interface can help you verify this: View the source on this query to see the data for a normal node posted by you. Notice that you are the author_user. Compare that to the info for a Q&A post where the author_user is "QandAEditors" instead of an actual username.
