Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When searching generic names ("John" for example) it may be useful to order the results by reputation since only the first X are shown, and I'm more likely to find the John I'm looking for if the ones with 1 reputation are filtered out instead of what appears to be random ordering.

Greatly (5x-10x) increasing the number of results may also help. – Andreas Bonini Mar 1 '10 at 4:30

I'm agree, Not only sorting but also when the search results does not fit in one page, It would be great to have pagination option too. I think its currently showing first page only.

When I browse filter/john page directly, looks like there is another page too
