Dear Monks!

Recently I stumbeld over a really great node, which only got one (up)vote. And there are probably hundreds of hidden gems, which are now nearly forgotten. So I propose the following poll to promote them and to blow away some dust from them.

The most underrated node of all time is

btw.: I am more interested in the discussion on the poll than the results itself - I expect to find many great nodes that way - and many that are not in the Selected Best Nodes-list.

    Seriously... I was pondering about a weighted search, which tries to compensate negative conditions.

    For instance if "Re^3"s posted 3 AM on a Sunday 10 days after the OP get only 10 % of the votes of the average votes of a "Re^1" at the same time should be weighted with factor 10. (hope you get the basic idea)

    Another approach could take care about subjective tastes by searching nodes upvoted by monks whose votes correlate with your own votes. But this could only be realized with free access to the DB.

    Cheers Rolf
