    the search feature is no good.
    ie: i type "kit 2d"
    the result is zero, coz the word is too short. how can i search for kit 2d, sure we can't type the kit and the 2d in any longer word...

    +1, but...
    I suppose enabling 2 letters searching would slowing the forum down coz the search engine would have to analyze thousands of posts with hundreds of thousands of words more than if it search just 3 letters

    sometimes it would be useful but I'd say we have good enough system coz for example @sc there is minimum word lenght in search >= 4 so you can't even type "pes", "kit" "ps2" "kel" "mdl" "tex"

    errr. how 'bout enabling whole word (typing WE will not search "well, wet, weather")?

    if that can't be done either, please increase the max to 3. coz very useful word only typed in 3 letters like HEX, KIT, STR, TXS, BIN, etc

    thanx :)

    I've lowered it to 3 so we'll see how it goes. The search index is now being rebuilt so it will be a few hours before it's at 100%.
