Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 was filtering questions so that I can see C++ and C# questions, I thought it's better to filter [C++] [or] [C#].

First time I typed http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/c%2b%2b% c%23 for C++ and C# enter image description here

Second time I typed http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/c%2b%2b+or+c%23 for C++ or C#

enter image description here

Why [C]? when I add or to the filter it confuses C++ with C

Am I missing something? Or should this be reported? If someone has any information please help me I'm dazed

Belongs on Meta ? – Soner Gönül Dec 25 '12 at 10:49
    
Just so you know [c++] [or] [c#] in the search bar works as expected. – chris Dec 25 '12 at 10:54

You're mixing + encodings here, the proper URL for the style you have would be:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/c%2b%2b%20or%20c%23

The alternative, if in doubt, is to have any xxxx+ tag at the end (which gets special love to handle all the cases we reasonably can), like this:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/c%23 or c++
(note the hash still needs encoding, there's no way around that one)
