    initial v1  
    33For starters, it will enable proper member search #4541 which will be useful for many, many communities. In fact, it could enable BuddyPress to host some types of communities that have so far not been a core target.
    44e.g.
    5 '''Meetup-type, user-group communities''' - if I can find everyone in the community between 18 and 34 who's interested in kite surfing, I could create a new group on kite surfing and invite them all
    6 '''Professional listings''' - if I can easily find an illustrator with 5* expertise in CorelDraw in Camden, why wouldn't I use BuddyPress?
    7 '''Churches, Volunteer organizations, Schools etc''' - Sure, many of them already use BuddyPress. But if I can easily find folks who are in town this weekend, then I wouldn't have to use other software/services to create and manage a list of who's going to the Habitat for Humanity work site this weekend.
    8 '''Directories/Catalogs''' - This will make JJJ cringe, but a parameter-based search could make BuddyPress a contender for catalog software, e.g. I can find all movies directed by Hitchcock between 1940 and 1946? Wow! Okay, maybe I went a little bit too far out with this one. But the first 3 use-cases are legit.
