  1. Wildcards

    I would love to be able to use wildcards. It's so difficult to guess what the mangled version of a name would be.

  2. BETTER SEARCHES (accuracy, control & operators)

    Have an advanced search like Google Advanced. When searching for 'all these words' that should mean that all of those words are in the article not just one of them.
    Thanks

  3. Allow restricting search to particular days of the week

    Restrict search to days of the week eg Monday so it would return Saturday football results.

  4. Reward Manual Corrections to OCR-generated flaws

    There is little incentive to repair obvious flaws in OCR-generated plaintext other than the satisfaction of having done so. Awarding concessionary access to those willing to contribute such exacting labours would improve the accumulated corpus for everyone and render more accurate the search function -- which depends exclusively upon the plaintext version.
