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

Now the database refactoring is done, would it be possible to explore questions through tags based on the USER's profile ?


  • if I am on a user's profile and I click on one of their Tags 'T', I would like to see the n questions where he/she has put an answer, not the NN questions ever tagged T.

  • same goes for the tags beneath a question in somebody's profile

  • same for "favorites": click on a tag is a way to filter through all somebody's favorite questions in order to see only the one tagged T

Those requests could be combined with the usual sort directives.

That could mean an API like: or U?filter=tag&sort=votes or U?filter=question&sort=views or U?tabs=favorites&sort-top


  • show me all questions tagged T or U where user 1234 has put at least one answer, sorted by his/her most upvoted answer
  • show me all questions asked by user 1234, tagged T or U, sorted by the user's most viewed questions
  • show me all favorite questions for user 1234, tagged T or U, from the most recent to the oldest

The first beneficiaries would be the users themselves, for their own profile which can contain a lot of question/answer/favorites.

this is a fairly dramatic change to the user page, so I strongly suggest anyone interested check it out.

(by that I mean, see what happens when you click on a tag on a user page now.)

Awww, I was so used to the old way. I would go to my user page and middle click the tags to open the tags I usually go to (I know I should probably be using Interesting Tags for this, but they don't line up in a table and so its harder to quickly open 10-15 of them) – Anders Aug 11 '09 at 14:51
