Feature request: character tagging

I’m not sure how automated this could be done, but a feature that tags threads/posts with the glyph/character discussed would be very helpful. For this to work, you’d have to be able to search the forum with one character only (now you need minimum three). Special characters should also be supported.

Examples:
A search for “&” should return all the threads/posts concerning ampersands.
A search for “z” should return all the threads/posts concerning z.

Helpful, but I think pretty difficult to implement well.
A more feasible and flexible solution for now would be to keep the wiki up to date.

Could work if there was a naming convention, quite often people refer to glyphs “&”, “z” so i'd imagine something could be built to find those sort of strings.

It could be an automated script. Most letters, except a and i, are rarely used alone.

Then it would pick up all those glyphs mentioned in the Critique section, for example. Which could be desiderable or not.

Yeah. But that is just the thing. Reading about how people solve these things is how you learn.
