I was searching for topics on Hi8 tapes for a friend and noticed a search oddness. The standard search brings up forum results, but the advance forum only search finds no matches at all.

After some troubleshooting, it appears that the advanced search will not search for phrases that are three characters or less. You can either search for a longer, similar topic like "Digital8", since those decks can usually play HI8, or use the standard Google search.

We'll see about fixing it with the next forum update. MySQL and the forum need some tweaks to allow 3 characters. It used to be possible, and may have been broken with the server move way back in 2015. Nobody reported it until now.
