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 doubt that last one will work correctly now anyway, since they moved the message out of the post body. – Tim Stone Feb 8 '13 at 19:02
@TimStone You're right, I'll remove it. Still, the message exists on duplicates that were closed before the message was removed, the hack is not completely useless. – Yannis Feb 8 '13 at 19:07
Yeah, and a general hint that the negation operator will work like that would still be useful. – Tim Stone Feb 8 '13 at 19:09
The date search stuff has been implemented, although it's still technically marked as experimental. – Tim Stone Feb 10 '13 at 1:46
I wonder what a non-tech person is going to think of code searches on the non-tech sites. For example code:"cup sugar" works fine and makes sense to me... – Some Helpful Commenter Feb 22 '13 at 16:02

There is now a help article that has all the supported operators, it will be linked from the bottom of the advanced search tips after the next build.
