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

Here's my problem: Rather than hanging around on SO all the time, I would like to create filters, e.g. [c++], "arrays", "opencv", so that when someone posts a question with these in the taglist or the body of the question, I get alerted by email. Or I get them as an RSS feed, or some similar. You get the idea.

Is there a service that currently does this? If not, would you be interested in such a thing, since I'll be building one for myself.

Currently, you can get a feed of questions with certain tags or combinations of tags, but not the results of a search involving text input.

I'm a bit uncertain if the latter is what you meant, but regardless, the two strings you mention are tags, so here you go:

Feed of all questions with [c++] or [arrays] or [opencv]

When you're on a /tagged page, there is a link to the feed at the very bottom of the page.

Thanks, I didn't know about the filtered RSS feed functionality for SO. – recipriversexclusion Jul 18 '10 at 3:48

I don't know if this is what you're looking for, but...

I could easily extend it to show questions that match a tag.
