in reply to Revisiting Super Search

I'd like to see results sorted by Rep. (Regardless of whether I know the rep, lets not go there again).
I'd rather see them by (reverse) date, or better yet by threading (so I'd see the first post to mention the topic before I'd see the replies to it) if possible. So it seems to me the same choices that are available when viewing the one person's postings would be good. Of course, not all posts have a reputation (like perlman)--where would these fit into the rep sort?

I'd also like to be able to search posts by author. (If, for example, I remember that chromatic made a good post about typeglobs that had something I specifically wanted, but I don't remember that it was Re: Validating a Code Reference, and I don't want to go through the listing of his 600 nodes, and everyone talks about typeglobs, so a general search isn't as helpful. This happens more often then you think, although that node is a bad example, because it's easy to find)
And I'd rather see that as an option when searching for nodes by an author...

I'd like to not have all the perlman pages show up so often
As a configurable option. Sometimes that's just what you're looking for.

    Ooh, good ideas. Although I imagine threading would be more difficult since this is coming out of a relational database..

    Fine by me, although I suspect it'll be the same engine behind it.

    I meant that as a comment that they show up inexplicably. I had many man pages show up when I looked for running with scissors. Neither "running" nor "scissors" were there. (And I imagine that "with" is in a lot more posts that I got as returns.)

    Of course, not all posts have a reputation (like perlman)--where would these fit into the rep sort?

    If they are showing up as a result for good reason (see above), then I'd say they should be ranked first. The Perl man pages are great, as long as they have some relevance to what you seek.
