debt added a comment to T170099: Search returns random results when search query begins with a hyphen.

Let's take a look at this in ElasticSearch parser and see if we can change the UI display of using negative symbol before a word - to make the UI display nothing if we don't have any results.

I think this is a case where we need more documentation. Maybe we should look instances of potentially confusing power-user syntax and catch them and give documentation hints. So, if you search for -happy then you get the standard results but also a message that says "Did you mean to search for articles without happy in them? If not, try searching for insource:/-happy/." (Another obvious one is a question mark: "Use \? as a single-character wildcard".)

debt added a comment to T176428: Search Relevance test #4 - action items.
  • The wording for privacy statement / opt out were just too wide to fit in the notification.

Yup, this is fine

  • The do not show same article to same user, ever, has the requirement that it only works for a logged in user.... With the 2 day timeout that should also take more than a year.

This is good, and we shouldn't add in a bunch of JS that would be slowing down every page for anon users.

  • Anonymous opt out is also on a best effort basis, the information is stored in local storage same as the timeout for how long until we can show a survey again. Logged in users have their opt out tracked on the backend which has stronger guarantees.

Sounds good!

One thing i'm indecisive on, this new version now requires logged in and anonymous users to make an api request before the survey is shown to them. That could be a reasonably large number of new api requests. I don't think it's problematic, but if others do i could rework things so only logged in users have to make the api request.

Could we run a test on this for a day or two and see what the servers do? If we think it'll be an issue, let's only do the api request for logged in users.
