Searching posts effectively has become an important issue in large-scale online communities. Especially, if search users have different inclinations when they search posts, they have different kinds of posts in their minds. To address this problem, in this paper, we propose a scheme of ranking posts based on search users’ inclination. User ranking score is employed to capture posts that are relevant to a specific user inclination. Specifically, we present a scheme to rank posts in terms of user expertise and popularity. Experimental results show that different user inclinations can produce quite different search results and the proposed scheme achieves about 70% accuracy.

About this site

This website has been set up for WWW2009 by Christopher Gutteridge of the University of Southampton, using our EPrints software.


We (Southampton EPrints Project) intend to preserve the files and HTML pages of this site for many years, however we will turn it into flat files for long term preservation. This means that at some point in the months after the conference the search, metadata-export, JSON interface, OAI etc. will be disabled as we "fossilize" the site. Please plan accordingly. Feel free to ask nicely for us to keep the dynamic site online longer if there's a rally good (or cool) use for it... [this has now happened, this site is now static]
