    I think because these 1, 2 and 3 letters accounts are more expensive than the 4+ letters accounts. But I'm really not sure why

    Are you talking about your MC account name or forums name?

    My best guess is that the forums don't let you search things that are only 3 letters long

    I think this is the case, yeah

    If you search forums for three letters it can't complete it because the query is too short, so I'm guessing it's just built in that names can't be less than 3 letters because you can't search them

    Would you like this to be locked & archived or kept open in case of any further questions?
