    I just picked up a 1971 Bally game, "Hi-Lo Ace" and was unable to add it to my collection. It appears your machine search disregards 2 and 3-letter words, or else the game isn't in the database.

    Can you take a screen shot?

    https://pinside.com/pinball/archive appears to search "hi" and "hi-lo". Perhaps you're coming in from a different place. A screen shot or two can be super helpful - one showing what you're doing, and one showing the result.

    I was able to reproduce the issue.

    The search field on the collection page always returns zero results for search terms that are 3 letters or less. When 4 letters are entered, search results are returned.

    Thanks, that clarifies the entry point being used.

    "hi" fails
    "hi-" works (3 characters, odd)
    "tro" fails
    "tron" works
    "sin" fails
    "sinb" works

    Search for "hi" works on
