Search Parameters

Guys,

As you know, the search needs minimum length sized words (3 characters or less) to work with b/c it will crap out.

Unfortunately, that kind of kills searches for "Wii" threads.

One fix would be to decrease the size, but another workaround would be to force everyone to refer to it as a Wiii. :D

Anyone?

    And 360 and PS3 as well.

    It'll also kill WoW and a bunch of other MMORPG abbreviations, which could end up being a big issue as well soon.

    Not it'll also kill... it does kill. You currently cannot search for 3-character words.

    Now, I understand the rationale: it will kill the search servers, but I wonder if the three-letter words are restricted to a short "set" of words (Wii, PS3, WOW, etc.), it might not be as bad; it would require some load testing though.

    Not being pushy, just recommending you insert some sort of "formal note" about that cool trick on the search page, probably in the "Search by Key Words" box.

    I'd like it if the word restriction was taken away entirely so I can ego search CT again

    At least you have the alternative of searching for "Cardboard Tube" or even "Tube".

    but he knows that whenever we badmouth him we use "CT" since he then can't find our offending posts
