Hey I just noticed something odd when I was trying to find a particular thread about a certain game: tetraspace.

but I got this message:

The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: tetraspace.
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.

???

Yes it might be a common word here, but really? It's not that common.

Yes indeed, when I tried this, I got the same.
This might be because the former URL seems to have been 'tetraspace'(.com)

Nothing I can do about it. I just let posts through, and move spam around.

Try using Google search instead of the built-in one. I just searched there for "hi.gher.space tetraspace" and results were good.

This forum's posts are logged into the Google database almost immediately.
