Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

I've been using Stack Overflow for the past six months and I try to answer many community wiki questions.

  • Where can I see list of recent community wiki questions?

  • Why there isn't a wiki tab under questions?

  • Where can I find a list of highest voted community wiki questions?

Try this search: http://stackoverflow.com/search?q=wiki:1 (You can sort it by clicking the tabs), or enter wiki:1 in the search box.

There isn't a tab, most likely because community wiki questions aren't really displayed much differently than any other question.

I find just the highest questions of all time to be just as (or more) useful as a list of the highest community wiki questions.

The current tabs: newest, featured, hot, votes and active are only filters/sortings. Having a filter for wiki as a tab should be no different, and useful if you need it. I don't understand why the only way you can filter on wiki questions is by advanced search parameter. –  awe Feb 23 '10 at 13:03

To add to Chacha102's answer and also directly answering the third question:

You can apply various filters. Besides "wiki" they are: "hasaccepted", "closed", "answers" and "votes". There is also "user", but it is not so interesting in this context.

There is also a way to filter for a particular tag, the "[tag]" syntax. E.g. [perl] to only display questions tagged with "perl".

Examples (enter in the search box in the upper right on any page):

This example is also an answer to the third question. To list highly voted Community Wiki (CW) questions that have not been closed (100 votes in this example - result takes up 2 pages for Stack Overflow):

wiki:1 closed:0 votes:100

To list CW questions that have not been closed:

wiki:1 closed:0

To list CW questions that have not been closed, have at least 7 upvotes and no accepted answer:

wiki:1 closed:0 votes:7 hasaccepted:0

To list CW questions that have not been closed, have at least 3 upvotes and have no answers:

wiki:1 closed:0 votes:3 answers:0

To list CW questions that have not been closed, and have at least 12 answers:

wiki:1 closed:0 answers:12

To list CW questions tagged with Perl that have not been closed, and have no answers:

wiki:1 closed:0 answers:0 [perl]

This can be expressed as URLs. E.g. for the third example:

http://stackoverflow.com/search?q=wiki%3A1+closed%3A0+votes%3A7+hasaccepted%3A0

These filters were described in an old Stack Overflow blog entry: Stack Overflow Search – Now 61% Less Crappy. The filters are documented in /search and are more up to date, e.g. http://stackoverflow.com/search for Stack Overflow. There is a new filter: intitle ("questions with specific words in the title").

This content should be in the FAQ. –  Ether Jan 31 '10 at 18:05

question:1 seems to also work, to only match questions rather than all posts. –  Ether Jan 31 '10 at 18:26

Thanks for this. Seems obscure, even for a site focused on programmers. –  mahalie Aug 12 '11 at 17:38
