    Default enable 3 character search length please

    not sure if this has come up before but it would be great to enable 3 character length searches... akfiles does this not sure of the forum template/ architecture is different or not... but at the moment cant search for "9mm" or "akv" or "357" - which would be very helpful

    It was explained in computereze why it wouldn't be prudent at this juncture, when I asked in a thread a while back.

    Conjunctions crash the search system or something.

    makes no sense... akfiles forum uses 3 letter w no problem, not asking for conjunctions just 3 characters - if excluding punctuation marks helps this then exclude them... the entire gun world is ruled by 3 characters i.e. calibers and models

    Most of the things I want to search for seem to have three letters too.

    The problem with this, as I understand it from other forums I'm on, is it takes a LOT more resources to run a search when it is just 3 characters.
