Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

My feature-request: There should be a way to search for multiple tags at once (A OR B, rather than A AND B) from the GUI

Reason: When looking for interesting questions asked while I was gone, I will follow this procedure:

  1. Click on newest
  2. Click on one of my interesting tags
  3. Open a number of links, scrolling down until I find one that I've seen before
  4. Click on the next interesting tag
  5. Open a number of links, scrolling down until I find one that I've seen before
  6. ...

Not only do I have to try to remember which questions I've seen before, but some of them have two of my interesting tags, so that something I've "seen before" I actually first saw a minute or two ago.

[Edit] A simple thing would be make the "Interesting Tags" header link to a page that displays all posts that have one of your interesting tags.

You could manually construct your url.

This is the one I use:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged?tagnames=perl~+~regex~+pcre+or+language-agnostic+or+parse+or+rosetta-stone+or+code-golf&sort=active

Then I'd like there to be a way of saving/editing these groups of tags on the site, rather than having to save a bunch of bookmarks and edit them manually whenever I wanted to change a tag-grouping. – BlueRaja Jan 27 '10 at 17:34
