I tried using Census+ on a high population server. It had gotten down to the point of it having to search for Level 85, by race, by class, by name. I think it is missing groups of people whose names start with H, J, K, L, M, N, Q, V, W, X, Z if it has to go this deep into the scan.

The chat echo showed the following... (This happened for multiple races and classes when it got down to this level of specificity).

n-y
n-u
n-t
n-s
n-r
n-p
n-o
n-i
n-g
n-f
n-e
n-d
n-c
n-b
n-a

Those n-? searches you're seeing aren't missing anyone. The n- field is pure pattern matching, so a search for n-s will get anyone with an s anywhere in their name. For instance, I just ran a manual /who mage 85 on my server and got 34 results. Then I ran a /who mage 85 n-s, and it cut the list to 14. My mage was on the first list, but not the second, as I have no s in my name.

The only people that might be getting missed under the current system are people who have non-regular ascii characters combined ONLY with one or more of the "missing letters" that you listed. And frankly, from my point of view, screw those guys for having stupid names.

This topic is discussed in more detail in slightly older thread:

http://www.warcraftrealms.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4819

You may want to at least skim through it. It's a rather interesting read (and no, I am not saying that just because I posted in that thread too.. Very Happy ).
