    Brogan reminded people about "Order by Relevance" as a search option recently.
    The feature seems interesting .. a few initial searches showed it *might* be a better method of searching than the default (I'll keep trying it).
    I was surprised to see that "Order by Relevance" was disabled at: http://8wayrun.com/search/
    Do you use Order by Relevance ?
    What are you impressions with it ?
    Anyone know how a search item's Relevance is determined ? {Q: is there a formula?}
    Is order by Relevance harder on the server queries than order by Most Recent ?

    That option is only available with the new search add-on (yet to be released).

    FYI: Order By Relevance ended up being a feature of the new Big Board Search System.
