icon Strip trailing space in search fields (0)  
If you inadvertently leave a trailing space
in the Author Name filed of the search form,
you will get zero hits.

I think that all of the search fields should be stripped
of trailing (and leading) white-space before submission
to the engine.

I really agree;
it is not like usernames
can contain spaces.

However, Schik says
that other search improvements
take priority.

Some words cannot be
searched for at all, as it is.
Take care with spacebar!

Fixed. Also fixed the issue where some words just wouldn't show up in results.
