in reply to Super Search by Reputation

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.

    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

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

    "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.

[erix]: Look what I found! :P
[Corion]: Hmm - actually, I don't need them, even though they'd be nice. I just want the (say) 10 latest images, and that's easily done with a limit 10 offset 0 clause, as I don't need all top 10 images for all users.
[Corion]: erix: Sure, but this is for a really-lightweight application and I'm replacing a CSV file / JSON file for user configuration with SQLite (and optionally, Pg) :)
[erix]: isn't a texty format handier for configs?
[Corion]: So far, I've avoided having even a user database by storing the user information in a (signed) cookie that the browser keeps for me, but as I want to be able to lock users, I need a second storage option :)
[Corion]: erix: It's needed for keeping the list of users and the list of tags associated with an image, and for keeping the images with users. I want an easy way to know if an image can be deleted, which means that it can't be referenced by any tag anymore. ...
[Corion]: SQL feels like a natural choice here :)
