Subject: parody search suggestions

Written By: Ethan Mawyer on 11/25/03 at 10:07 p.m.

i signed up to help blo-town with his awards and i'm going to do my best to help out like i said i would but its going to be pretty hard to decide between the 8000 or so parodies submitted this year. So i have some ideas how the search could be made easier... if you could enter requirements in the search page for a minimum amount of votes and a minimum rating for a parody to help find the better parodies if the other parameters result in a lot of songs coming up. As always i have no idea how much effort this would take but it would make things easier. (i know that the best voted parodies aren't always the best parodies but i can't think of any better alternatives) It would also be nice to have the option of listing the genre of the original song as well as a choice of broad parody subjects to choose from (misc. if it isn't any of them) when a song is submitted and allow that to be searched for as well. I know there will probably be people making comments questioning the choice of genre but i think the search value outweighs that problem. We should also be able to search by decade on the general search page. Last i checked the statistics at the bottom of the amiright there were 15,000 parodies which means we could use more ways to search for parodies.
