How much on-site search is needed in MVP?
Pure free-text search is not useful: generalist search engines already do it well. This is about search that filters on metadata that generalist search engines don’t take into account.
I’m grouping several related problems to solve here. Their common point is the desire to find threads not based on a free-text search, but including other criteria (in addition to some free text) such as:
- stuff I’ve interacted with (read, upvoted, posted, …);
- question or answer age;
- question or answer score;
