    When I use search with the criteria "forums" the error message: "No results for ____ found" shows up, no matter what.

    No, I searched with the radio button "Forums" selected.

    Okay, I see what you mean.

    If you throw in a wildcard in addition to the search term, though (such as wii*) it works.

    It's probably because you're searching for Wii, which shouldn't work anyways and should bring you to an error . Same thing should happen when I search 3DS, but it doesn't.

    It should tell you if you don't have enough chars. And it has to be >2, not >3.

    @plasma dragon007: If you throw the wild card after some terms, it still doesn't work.
