Reputation is heavily based on how many monks with votes left see the nodes. Because of that, there are many great nodes that have a low reputation. Just posting a question on a Saturday will likely result in lower rep (or over the holidays, etc.). It would probably be more useful to have Super Search show only nodes by e.g. merlyn, ikegami, and BrowserUK than sort based on noderep.

      "?node_id=3989;a=%5Bikegami%5D%20%5Bmerlyn%5D%20%5BBrowserUk%5D"

      And what exactly is that supposed to do other than include the mentioned authors?

    Is it stored somewhere whether a node made it to the "best nodes of the day/week/month"-list?
    If yes, that info could be used in addition to the reputation to compensate for low-traffic time...
    Just an idea by Rata

    "Super Search show only nodes by e.g. merlyn, ikegami, and BrowserUK than sort based on noderep"

    I hope you are not implying that only nodes written by BrowserUk ikegami and merlyn are deemed to be the most suitable, I'm sure they would be the first to admit that they are not always right!

      No, "e.g." is shorthand for "for example". I picked three Monks that came to mind as an example, but there are obviosuly several more. My point was (and still is) that limiting one's search to nodes by Monks that have a history of being particularly helpful and accurate will yield better results than searching on noderep.
