in thread Sorting "SuperSearch" results by votes?

but sorting by rep is much simpler to implement just by extending an SQL-Query

Um, if you sorted on rep using SQL with Super Search, you'd turn something specificly designed to prevent undue load into something performantly exceedingly awful. And adding an index on reputation would rather suck also, since reputation is the one thing about a node that changes an order of magnitude more often than anything else about the node.

    OK, no simple SQL-Query, but surely you could cache the normal (max 100?) results of one search-run and sort them within perl???

    Anyway if it's too complicated to realize, never mind ...
