Arrow Search

I lately use the search option in the forum a lot.
One question: Why does the search word need to be at least 4 characters?
There are many words that are...lets say 3 words.

Same reason you can't look up "THE" in google.
3 letter words are too common, so you would end up with too many results.
--
It does need improving, because even when your looking for a phrase, it still wants each word to be >3 letters.

as DF said.. letter with a few letters usualy don't have any important or identifying meaning... Your search should contain words that are very specific for the stuff you are looking for.. So a minimum of 4 chars is enough.

But there are words to search in the forum that aren't >3 characters:
Zoe (if for some weird reason you feel like searching for her...),
win xp (if I search 'windows' I get lots of useless info), max (payne),
and a lot more...
