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

I know that searching for


will return all questions with scores of ten or more.

What I want to know is whether there is a way of searching for questions that don't fit into that category. I want to search for the complement of votes:10.

Seems like they should allow the - operator on that one. Basically let -votes:10 return all questions which do not have 10 votes or more. – animuson Aug 21 '12 at 20:48
I don't think so, but there should be! – Tim Post Aug 22 '12 at 2:06
Someone was asking about this in scifi chat a couple days ago. There isn't as of yet, probably better to make this a [feature request]. – Kevin Aug 22 '12 at 2:39
@animuson or maybe a !votes:10 operator – Conner Aug 22 '12 at 3:47
@Conner perhaps ~votes:10. Makin' it ( •_•)>⌐■-■ (⌐■_■) bitwise... – gobernador Aug 22 '12 at 5:07

This will be possible after the next build. Range operators will support an "end only" syntax: votes:..9 (or score:..9, they're synonyms).
