Forum search ignoring words

Post by Julia »

The forum search function seems to ignore a lot of the words you search for, making it hard to find stuff. Putting the phrase in quotes or adding + marks doesn't seem to make any difference.

Examples: (Some are real things I was searching for, others are example phrases I used to test)

Search found 1076 matches
Search term used: original character ignored: character
Search found 1076 matches
Search term used: original +character ignored: character
Search found 35 matches
Search term used: eshuushuu forums ignored: forums
Search found 387 matches
Search term used: japanese games ignored: japanese
Search found 921 matches
Search term used: happy days ignored: happy
Search found 63 matches
Search term used: image reports ignored: image
Search found 151 matches
Search term used: touhou figures ignored: touhou
It's also impossible to search for "tagging team" because both of them are ignored.
The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: tagging team.
You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 3 characters and must not contain more than 14 characters excluding wildcards.
