What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

It appears that searches with single character queries are redirected to the site's search help page. For example:

http://stackoverflow.com/search?q=e

This is acceptable, because with the English language there are few valid search terms that are only one characters long. However, for newer sites such as Chinese Language and Usage, a single Unicode character can be equivalent to one or more English words. I believe therefore that the restriction should be relaxed for these sites. For instance, a search like this:

http://chinese.stackexchange.com/search?q=%E5%8E%BA

is valid, and should work.

This has been enabled for chinese.SE and japanese.SE. Your search link now works, as does this.
