Can we search for posts by length using the normal search interface?
Is there a way to search for questions and answers by length? I recall that the system has some checks for excessively long answers, and I expect there's something for very short answers as well. Is any of the post length size available through search? (I'd imagine something like size:>300 or an option to order by length.)
If the answer is no, I'll probably follow this up with a feature request with a bit more justification of why this would be useful, but the short version is that I'm active in some relatively low view tags, and if I'm looking for my "best" posts, ordering by votes isn't a great metric, but length would be fairly useful.
I am aware of Add ability to search for/sort answers by length, of which this might be a duplicate; it's aimed at Careers, but the justification is about the same as here. (Since it's moderator election time, people might be looking for ways to demonstrate patience and communication ability, too.)
When adding questions to my SO Careers profile, I found that votes was not a very reliable way for me to find answers that I wanted to highlight. Often highly voted answers tended to be short and/or for very simple, common questions. For my careers page, I wanted to find answers that I had spent some time on, for hard questions, or that demonstrated my abilities in a positive way. Short answers to common questions seem to be upvoted more often than lengthy answers to, perhaps, esoteric or difficult questions.
The answer there, though, just points to https://data.stackexchange.com/; it provides a workaround, but it doesn't actually answer whether or not this is available in the normal search (and even if it wasn't then, it might have been added in the past two years). I'm specifically asking whether this functionality is available through the normal search.
