    Why can't I search for the term "PhD"?

    I tried searching for the term PhD and it did not bring up any results. The term doctorate doesn't bring up the results I'm looking for, help?

    I can rebuild the search engine and see if that helps. Search will be offline for a few hours while reindexing takes place.

    In the meantime:

    most forum search engines also have a minimum character count that you have to search for. i havent used the search here in a while and i dont remember if it has a minimum or not.

    Rebuilding the search engine is in progress, so searches will result in incomplete results for the next few hours.

    On Cyburbia, you can search for three-letter terms excluding common words like "and", "but", "the" and so on.

    The search database has been completely rebuilt. Lots of results for PhD now, whether you search for threads or individual posts.
