in reply to Random Top Nodes

I like the idea as a method to improve the visibility of those nodes that are currently in a dark zone, i.e. not in the Best Nodes, not in Tutorials, not in any special list, so people can't get to know about those gems unless they stumble into them by chance.

I believe it's time to recognize that the Monastery needs a more mature tool to browse those interesting nodes.

As for the method of enhancing the visibility of deserving nodes, I liked your previous suggestion better, just because I believe it is the fastest to implement. If I could choose the best method, though, I would endorse tilly's plan of having best-of-the-month/year lists, which seems to have also tye's approval.

Go for it. Whichever method is chosen will improve the Monastery's mission of spreading knowledge.

    Many have mentioned my earlier idea of modifying Super Search to include reputation as a search criteria. I looked into it but the supersearch code is pretty specialized stuff, and I have to admit that I was unable to identify an easy patch to it. I suspect that effectively modifying it will require tye's skills and understanding of how it works. Its definately not a simple job to my eyes.
