    Anyone else think the search feature would be better if it didn't have a 3 letter minimum so you could look up words like 5 and c and # and etc?

    yeah Actually..that has bugged me too.

    there is a forum called suggestions, in pauls' shack this would be something to suggest.

    I don't know if it is possible though.
  3. I already asked, paul said that the search feature is the biggest bandwidth consumer, changing the minimum would take up too much bandwidth.
  4. a general search would be pretty useless, but if you specify "search title only", and maybe also the particular forum= useful, eg. if there's a band name which is distinguished from another soley by the addition of a single (or two) letter/number.

    "the" or "of" gets ignored on Google, but if you link it to another search word with a hyphen you narrow down that term's results.
