Searching Nearby Posts

Postby jimerb » Sat Apr 28, 2018 1:54 pm

I subscribe to the internet search option and it would be nice if I could search in the proximity of a specific post.

For example, sometimes I come across good posts that have no rhyme or reason in the filename and the poster name is complete gobbledygook. For example, the post might look like this:

FILENAME: Good file.jpg POSTER: "IWHsamXFdi2gAZ" <WmxiNMcreidTwc@VIM2ELqYyeo.zFN>

I sometimes have a hunch that there are a "set" of similar files, but I have no easy way to retrieve them via search without trying to download a million headers and locate it by date.

It would be nice if i could right click on the post and say "Search For Nearby Posts...". From there a dialog box could ask me how much time or records I want to pull FROM THAT GROUP.

Maybe the dialog looks like this: (Pretend the o's are radio buttons)

o - NUMBER OF RECORDS TO PULL _____
o - TIME TO PULL -- ___ HOURS

[SEARCH]

I would think this is possible using a message or post id?

Hope you will consider.
