    Now can the most common abbreviations be excluded from the exclude list the search tool of this formum uses?

    We use a lot of abbreviations here. Now if the search term used is to short 3 letters or less, it is ignored

    However suppose you search for COH (Chains of Honor), COA (Crown of Ages), CB (Crushing Blow), PI (you know what it means), LI, CI etc. ? Most people use the abbreviations only, so searching for Chains AND Honor has no use if the thread only metions COH....

    He knows what they mean, he's lamenting the fact that you can't search for quite a few of the things we talk about here. I remember trying to search for "zod bug" years ago. It said "The following words were excluded from your query for being too short: zod bug". There's surely a way to change this, but smaller words probably take more resources to search for, and the search feature is a very resource-heavy feature as it is.

    Yeb, I know what they mean, but I want to address the fact that we can't search for it, without causing the server to crash due to load of course....
