samtto is it still about the minimum number of characters, or a different issue ?
We are all for fixing the issues, but we will need concrete, reproducible bug reports. There's also a big question of whether the issue is Flarum, PHP or MySQL related. If you are certain an issue is related to Flarum core, please open issues on GitHub with specific steps to reproduce, and if possible suggestions on what part of the code will need changes.
If it's related to PHP or MySQL configuration, it would be great to open a discussion under resource with the configuration steps, so that we can get user feedback and then integrate them in the official documentation.
Also keep in mind mind the search is not perfect for English either. We made compromises between functionality and performance in order to have something that returns most expected results, while still being fast . In the next updates we will try to make it easier for third-party search plugins so that you can use other search technologies to index the forum outside of MySQL, like ElasticSearch, Algolia and others. There's only so much that can be done in MySQL alone.
