Site search refinement: not your own journal?
When using site search, is there any benefit to seeing results from your own journal along with the sitewide results, provided you can search your own journal?
If you can't search your own journal individually, site search may be the only way you have to search your own journal, and I wouldn't want to mess that up for anyone.
If you can search your own journal, is there any benefit to having results from there displayed along with everybody else? I ask because I was running a search where I was 90% or more of the entries sitewide, and I was looking for stuff I didn't already know about.
Assuming it's feature-wise desirable to exclude the journal of the logged-in user from sitewide search results (if and only if that user can also search their own journal), would it be technically feasible? (This is probably a Mark question.)
If it's desirable and technically feasible, how best to implement it? Some thoughts:
* a separate radio button besides user-search and site search
* a checkbox on site search
* just exclude them and leave a note at the top of the search results
* other people may have way better ideas
Should be implemented as-is.
Should be implemented with changes. (please comment)
Shouldn't be implemented.
(I have no opinion)
