Just a trivial thought, really.

By the number of characters in a post? o.o; People search for/care about those?

No offense! It just never crossed my mind that a length of a post mattered to someone when searching, I suppose. In any case, I guess I remain indifferent to this. It'd be nice to have, but not something that would overly impact my searching or anything like that.

I don't quite understand why you'd ever want to use that? If there's a valid reason or some common examples of situations where it'd be useful then I'd support this, but at present it seems a little like "let's add this for the sake of it". If you have any examples for usage it'd help a lot!

I think what Cassino ment was that with this option the search results could be geared for posts with more content. For example tge same word appearing in two posts but the other is just few sentences while the other is a small novel... Well that wasnt realy good example but I hope you got the idea. :'D

The idea came from wanting to find some of my longer posts where I theorised about some in-universe Pokemon stuff. I didn't come with a real justification in mind, just thought if it would happen to be convenient enough to implement then why not (there's already sorting by thread length by way of number of replies, so it would be analogous to that). As I said, trivial, but see also KriegStein's post above.

When I'm looking for certain posts, I can usually remember if they're long or short so I'd use this to narrow down my search more. Good idea!

Although I personally wouldn't use it, I'm sure it'll prove useful to those such as yourself and Toujours above me. While I thought the idea was a bit useless myself, I understand some of the uses and help it can have in finding specific posts faster, so why not? I'm all up for it I suppose.
