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 believe this is impossible, currently, but I often find myself wanting to look at questions that abide a pretty specific set of criteria. It would be useful to have some kind of a tool that lets you search for those, similar to an SQL query.

would also probably check data explorer – Sathya Sep 29 '12 at 12:09
@Sathya That wouldn't be very helpful in this case. The data explorer is updated occasionally, not live. The last updates were in June, so anything he finds would most likely not fit the criteria anymore. – ughoavgfhw Sep 30 '12 at 1:53

Use the following search term:

[tag1] [tag2] answers:0

This will find all questions that have tags [tag1] and [tag2] and no answers

Didn't know about that, thanks! Is there a way to include all of my favorite tags? – jcora Sep 29 '12 at 11:50
@bane - I don't think so – ChrisF Sep 29 '12 at 11:51
And what about logical operators? It appears that this searches for questions that have both tag1 and tag2, but sometimes I want questions that have either one of those... – jcora Sep 29 '12 at 11:52

This will almost do the job:

[tag] answers:0 votes:0

However, the votes:0 mean that it must have at least 0 votes and you will still see voted questions :(

However, a solution for this is to use that query and sort by votes and start searching from the last page.

You can check the Unanswered -> No answers tab for questions with no answers, or Unanswered -> My tags to get questions with no upvoted answers in your favourite tags, but I don't think there's a way to mix & match both.
