Hey all, this is obviously trivial issue but is there some reason that when I search for terms that are less than 4 characters i get the message "One or all of your search keywords were below 4 characters". This limit seems bizarre given that GIS, kml, shp might all be common search terms in this forum.

just my 2 cents.

I run into this issue periodically (here and elsewhere). It is inconvenient given the number of TLAs we use in mapping.

But you can search through google, which often gives even better search results...

Thanks for the google tip :) Would still be nice to be able to search 3 letter strings in the forum though.
