Forum Search Function?

Is there a search feature on the forums that I am just not finding?

I want to know how to dismiss my companion so I can re-summon him as needed (i.e., not a permanent dismissal).

I also want to know if/when we get to add a surname.

I was looking for a search function because I am not the first to want to know these things, but I don't find a search function at any level of the forums.

Now that the game is live, there will be a LOT of new players wanting to find out user-level stuff.

re: your companion. The orb on the bottom left of the screen is clickable with or without your crew member with you and allows you to dismiss/recall them.

You get your legacy name later in the game - sorry cant remember the level but 20+ I think.

The search function is there for certain things but for me does not appear to work

No working search functions results in more redundant threads.

That reminds me, I need to make another thread asking about a search function.... maybe if we all do it whenever we notice there isn't one on page 1, they'll get the hint.
