Username Based CommunityEntry Search
Short, concise description of the idea
An ability to search a community for entries by a specific user.
Full description of the idea
This could be accomplished either by a button in the community page, or possibly a drop-down menu inside the community's userinfo page, to allow seeing a list of entries by that user, viewable by date.
An ordered list of benefits
Allows a fast search for entries in high-volume communities
Allows for easy sorting of said entries without having to bookmark or otherwise catalogue the diverse entries
Might benefit long-running or frequently referenced posts in some of the higher-volume communities.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
People might not want their entries to be indexed.
Potentially could lag a database if too many searches are run at the same time.
An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
Umm...if this was done as a form, I see two easy methods.
One is a dropdown list with the authorized posters in the community, and possibly a field for a date range, which then goes out and searches on that criteria.
The other is a form where you input the username, and it searches the community based on that, once again with the possible implementation of a username.
