Yea, I did that. I actually tried to spell it a couple of different ways, that one included, but it still didn't work.

Well i know on google, if you search with hyphens, it wil also return results with spaces, and vice versa. Similarly, if you search with spaces, you can also get results that have no spaces. Maybe it would be good to implement like that.

If it does that though for Yu-gi-oh won't it be below the three letter minimum?

But if you search with the quotes, it shouldn't violate the 3-letter minimum...

I thought about the minimum thing, too, but I also tried to find one by just entering the song. There were only like four results, and none of them were yu gi oh. :cry:

Hey,

Yeah, it seems that the fulltext search splits all words on the hyphen no matter what. Even if you put the whole thing in quotes, it is still ignored. I'm working on a work-around...

I just noticed something while I was searching for Lostboy's Nemutai Yatsura. If I enter "urusei" as anime and "giants" as musical artist, I can find it. But if I then select Order by Star Average, I get nothing.

I found a slight problem with the musical artist field, I was intetrsted to see if there were any other music videos by a band called SR-71, But when i searched, I recived no results, I know this is not ture because of this video http://www.animemusicvideos.org/members ... hp?v=34358

Just thought i'd bring this up, Not sure if there are any other musical artist problems, But if i find any i'll be sure to bring them up..Thanks for your time..^^;;

I can get it just fine. Are you sure that you haven't downloaded it before and if you have make sure that the option "Not Yet Downloaded Local" is unchecked before searching.

Whoops! You're right, I didn't notice that the search selects "Not Yet Downloaded Local" by default when I choose "Order by Star Average". :oops:

Hey All,

The fix has been applied to help with shorter names, like Yu-gi-oh and SR-71. Those should work now. Keep me posted with possible bugs.

This has always been a pet peeve of mine, by why doesn't the search order itself by "Most possible result" instead of alphebetical order?

When I search for "SQ"(without the wuotes) in Member, I come up with everything that begins with SQ in alphebetical order, rather than "SQ" first and then stuff after it.

As a result, the stuff I want is on the fourth or so page, depending on what the "Sq-" people make and how much of it they enter. :cry:

Searching for "SQ" with the quotes yields nothing at all.

And how does the three letter minimum affect searching? I don't get it.
<-- Idiot
-SQ™
Changes are good. Wait until you've seen mine.
