Feedback on new search filter

edited April 8 in News Vote Up0Vote Down

Your feedback is highly appreciated on the new filters for the search of fanfics.
In case you haven't noticed, a few days ago, next to the search button, there's a filter button. You can now exclude fanfics by 2 different genres and/or types.
We also added filter by length and story complete or work in progress

We hope this will help you enjoy a better MediaMiner experience

  • I actually have one issue with the search feature. When within a category of fiction, i.e. Inuyasha fanfiction, doing a search for a story title, in my opinion, should only search the Inuyasha category, but I get hits from every category. In addition, not even exact title matches are shown first. I'm not sure what algorithm is in place, but it should put exact title matches first, and then lesser matches with one or two matching words afterwards.

  • You are right, the text search should now give you only results of the anime you are in.

    Regarding the title match, it should work fine, but if not, you can always let us know

    thanks,

  • Thanks, I'll go test it right now and let you know.

  • Hmm...it now seems to put Inuyasha + whatever (crossover) first prior to JUST Inuyasha, which is fine since there aren't too many crossovers, and the exact title match (I used "The Lucky Ones") does come up as the first Inuyasha-only category match after the four...oh wait I take that back. There are three crossovers, but then the forth hit, or first hit only in the Inuyasha category and not additionally a second category, is "Lucky Charms", and then "The Lucky Ones" is next, below it, as the second or fifth hit, depending on your perspective. So it's still not doing exact match first and then similar match afterwards, hmmm... But I'm sure you have more important things to tweak, so address this when you have the time but it's not urgent. At least it does look like it's only giving me stories in the Inuyasha category, crossovers notwithstanding, so that's MUCH better than before where it was giving every fic from every category with a vaguely similar name. This is doable, so thank you. :-)

  • yup, I'll take a look once I get a chance
