Search word filters

I understand a search feature filtering out common words - it's a lot of overhead for an indexer to search and process each instance of words like "the". However, I think it is overfitting when it tells me things like "The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: makhleb". Is this something that can be tuned by administrators?

Re: Search word filters

At some point all the words will be too common on this forum, and you won't be able to search for anything other than myxlplyx, and toast (because for some reason we don't make enough threads about toast)

Seriously though the search link should just redirect to a google search with the site set to crawl.devel.org/tavern

Re: Search word filters

Also I guess Makhleb is the most discussed god. Trog has over 9000 results that show up fine.
