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

Is it a good idea to have an sort of symbol next to the questions in the search results indicating whether one has answered/voted on it? I find myself opening the same question more than once on the sci-fi site.

Well aside from just remembering the titles of questions you've already looked at, the color of the link also changes when you've already visited it before.

I don't think a lot of people will be in favor of additional icons spamming the questions list just because they voted on something, especially those who try and make it a habit to vote on almost everything.

Ah. I missed that I think. Thanks! – Chetter Hummin Jul 25 '12 at 3:29
The different color bit just works for the current session though. – Chetter Hummin Jul 27 '12 at 3:21
What browser do you use? I use Chrome and it remembers visited links. Do you possibly clear your browsing history when closing the browser or something? – animuson Jul 27 '12 at 3:22
You're right. It works using Chrome! – Chetter Hummin Jul 27 '12 at 4:08
