The search bar: doesn't work for me?

If I type something in the search bar I get odd results.

For instance, I type

Best Buy

and hit enter, it said no results found. I click on the fourms tab(and the All tab), that pops up above the bar, and try again. then it shows a link to "Best Buy profile page"

uh, shouldn't it show me the threads about Best Buy? It's done this to me the entire time I have been on a site. It NEVER gives me links to threads in the forums.

Obviously I'm doing something wrong!

Four characters or less and the search ignores the phrase, I believe. Instead of searching for "best buy", by typing best buy, it searches for best and buy. It's better to search for the game titles that you're looking for.

Most people abbreviate it as BB anyway, so it wouldn't show up regardless.

You don't use the search bar to search for threads/posts. You use the Search button, between the New Posts and Quick Links Button for that. The direct link is: http://www.cheapassg...rums/search.php
