Ankiweb shared deck cannot be searched in Chinese

In the page Shared Decks - AnkiWeb I can not search decks in chinese. For example,When I enter “考研” in the search box, nothing happens on the page. I do not know why it has to be like this.

I can reproduce it. Interestingly, it is not limited to the characters. I can reach for 刘毅突破词汇 for instance

Chinese characters can be searched with more than 3 characters, but those with less than 3 characters are not searchable.

Looks like minimum searchable characters is set to 3 characters. @dae Not sure how troublesome it would be, but maybe you could consider lowering minimum searchable characters to 2 or even 1 for characters in CJK unicode range [\u4E00-\u9FFF]?


This is on the todo list - as BGM has pointed out, it’s a limit on minimum # of characters, which is particularly problematic for Chinese.
