The four letter limit really gets on my nerves. I've read plenty of posts where admins tell noobs to use the search function. Now on this website abbreviations are used very often and when I don't recognize a certain abbreviation i would like to search it but many times it's four or less letters. Example: the other day I wanted to find a material list and write-up of a basic SNAP but alas it's not over five letters and I am clueless on what to add to the search so I just gave up. All in all we are told to use the search function instead of posting questions but many times the annoying unknown abbreviations are too short and nobody gets what they want. I would like to know what the purpose of it is and if it could be changed to help noobs like me and many others who get penalized for the unknown. Is it part of the website program or just a flood control.

However, as a general rule you want to make your guns as loud as possible to scare the shit out of people, and it also gives you a bigger e-penis.

I figured out that if you want to search something that is under 5 letters, just keep adding underscores to the end until it reaches 5 letters long.

For example:

If I want to search "PAS"...

I would type into the the search window, "PAS__"

Or with SNAP tech, you could just search something like "SNAP bow" and you'll get something regarding the basic idea.
