The first idea is excellent. And you can download the source from EDC, to fix it. You'll have that done by Tuesday, right? <G> Seriously, the current search is purely SQL based (IIRC), and also explains why you sometimes can't find nodes with multiple keywords that you know exist.

As for the second idea, I'm a little opposed to it on the following grounds:
  1. There will be a group of people that will set this on *every* post they make. As a result, their move up the monkular ladder will be purely voting XP based. This will partly be done as a "statement" about the voting system in general, and partly to be "different" (which is also a synonym for "annoying")

    Not to pick on princepawn directly, but to use his case as an example, if you were in a similiar situation, would you not set the non-votable option on every node, just so you avoid having nearly every node you write show up on the worst nodes list?
  2. More controversial posts will be made, without fear by the poster of losing XP. I think the knowledge that you can/will lose rank for bad material imposes a mediating influence on what monks post.
What I would like to see if a post is modified is that it shows back up in the newest nodes list, with a (e) tag near it, or something along those lines. I don't care for a previously suggested idea of a node having it's reputation reset to 0 for two reasons:
  1. Sometimes I edit a node to simple correct a spelling or badly formatted URL
  2. You now have XP gained by monks for voting on it, but no accounting on the node. Resetting the reputation causes the node/thread to lose its "flavor".

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
