New node - Supersearch - Feature proposal !by prad_intel (Monk)
|on Oct 10, 2005 at 05:23 UTC||Need Help??|
I got an idea for PM this weekend.
Most of the replies to my question from fellow monks and saints have been something like ...
Please refer a link .. which already has the answer for the question you asked.
This gave rise to the idea of listing similar links when a person tries to create a node.
Well explaining it better...
1) When a person tries to create a node and preview it , there could be an option of what is the question on. For ex - .csv ( key word )and below the preview section Super search could work parallely to list out the matching links which has already been posted on the same.
2) I am curious to know the feasibility of such a feature going in PM since i feel it has the following advantages
a) Monks posting their questions can have an answer before they even post it.
b) Monks could go ahead creating a node if they are unable to find a match.
c) This could decrease the count of nodes and the load on the database.( by decreasing the duplicacy level )
Countering probable comment on this -
"When there is a super search , why should this be ?"
would be most of your thoughts/comments/approach.
Well i still feel super search is the strongest i have seen and all i am telling is just to link Super Search which runs on the background when anyone tries to create/preview a node.
I hope i would be alive to see the golden jubilee celbrations of PerlMonks.org but also i would like to see that there arent a million nodes out of which there is a contribution of different people asking the same question.
Again I could be wrong as I am tester.I would like to highlight a similar feature available in Gmail which displays only relevant ads when you recieve a mail or create a mail.
Again ! we arent copying them , we are better than them in linking a search to creation of node.
You are welcome to comment on this and I just request you that to be a learning for me if YOU DISLIKE/OPPOSE this proposal.
If our constitution allows us free speech, why are there phone bills?Update :: Could you all let me know what is wrong with this as it is getting severely downvoted..i expect replies to people who downvote since i can know where i was wrong , downvoting without an explnation is vague.
