I'm a new user to this board, but a frequent forum poster. The biggest complaint on most websites that cause flaming is people who post questions that have already be asked. This makes the search tool a very important tool to noobs. I had a couple questions i wanted to ask, and decided to search for them first. The search ignores very common words that are apple or computer related. To me, this defeats the whole purpose of the search. If i want to look something up that's powerbook specific, i can't search for it. Maybe I'm an idiot and using the search wrong (it wouldn't be the first time). I'm sure you guys have done all the research in the past and made the search this way for a reason (possible just because how many post there are). I have not been flamed or in any way insulted on these boards. I've been welcomed with open arms. I've enjoyed what i've read in these past couple of days. This was just one "issue" i had. I'm not saying it needs to be changed, but at least explained to me a bit more. thank you.
Nope. When i search for something (for example powerbook upgrade) I get the following:
The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: powerbook upgrade. 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.
