Idea Search Ranking

Multiple options

When a search is made using a keyword, the results may be ranked according to (a) frequency of occurrence (default, as now), (b) most/least recent, (c) by author name, (d) by idea name.

Other filter parameters may be used, however this is not a "call for list".

What bigsleep is talking about. Not for the faint of heart, but it addresses some common "make my query interface more complicated!" requests. [jutta, Aug 24 2011]

       Yes, yes, we know all about that, thankyou, what we want are some predefined hyperlinks on the search page that instantly change the search ranking.

       I'm worried that that would be making things too complicated and not get used enough. I might occasionally see the point of (b), but why (c) and (d)? What good is alphabetic sort by user or idea name in this context?   

       To me, the most important thing that's wrong with the search ranking is the absence of ranking by relevance (occurrences divided by document size).
