New search functionality in SDN

Hey everybody

Since past few days i m seeing a new feature in search functionality on SDN.

If i search for any specific term it sorts out the links as per the assigned points/answered questions.I m not really sure if thats the best option coz a lot of times the correct answer might be in the thread but the original poster didn't award points or forgot to close.

Anybody else feels the same way as i do?

Thanx

Aamir

    I also noticed this a few days ago.

    I thought the indexes were corrupted again and was waiting for it to go away.

    I guess formally, in a perfect world, the sorted-by-points should be a usefull indicator, so we could learn to live with it (there were requests to "show" the thread status (but not necessarily sort it) as "answered" etc... which is a good thing as it gives more credit to the whole thread value and not (necessarily) an individual contribution to it.

    Most of my best posts (in my opinion) have remained unrewarded. 😊

    But this new search sorting might also be helpfull for finding points-gamers when searching for easily searchable terms 😊)

    Where it bothers most is that the old search sorted by relevance of the thread title. This was very usefull when the thread ID was not known (yet).

    Cheers,

    Julius

    It also seems to miss threads that are there.
