    Maybe the words you are using as usernames are really popular. I assume if they were less common and more geared towards brand, this might not happen.

    fashi.on = fashion
    technolo.gy = technology

    If that's what you did, then no wonder you are not showing up.

    Sorry for misleading, I mean my username is like "ABC.DEF" , when I search "ABCDEF" , I can't find 'ABC.DEF' in the search list.Is this right? Or I have to change the username without "."?
    I try it once again, if you search "wordpress" you 'll still not find "word.press"

    Since the word WordPress is popular, the search results have a lot of WordPress related accounts so your acc name doesn't show up in the search results.

    word.press is just an example, we can find out more situations like this. Regarding the instance you mentioned "fashi.on" , we can get this user in the list by searching "fashi.on" , but if we search "fashion" , we can't. So I don't know if we should avoid to use "." in the username

    The strange thing is yes, I can log into my account, I just can't find myself in the search list. Is this the so called softban ?
