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 want to search for:

  • unanswered questions
  • only in my tags
  • sorted by newest first

I'd have guessed this was very common—if not the default. However I can't figure it out. Closest I can find on meta is this, which doesn't have a definitive answer.

@Sfinnie, make sure and upvote the feature-request you linked to let them know that you want it implemented. – Lance Roberts Sep 15 '10 at 22:18
thx all. Have upvoted feature request. Don't understand why Jeff's resisting - but hey, it's his site :-) – sfinnie Sep 16 '10 at 8:50
I updated my answer to show unanswered, sorry for missing that. – Lance Roberts Sep 17 '10 at 8:41
@Lance: thanks. – sfinnie Sep 17 '10 at 11:33
When you say "only in my tags," you mean not specific tags, but all your tags, right? – Kazark Mar 15 '13 at 17:20

Here's the search I use, just replace the bold with your tags,it works fine for a few tags:[excel]%20[vba]%20answers%3a0

I don't see unanswered in there... – Tobias Kienzler Sep 16 '10 at 8:22
thx. I'll use that for now until I can figure the 'unanswered' bit too. – sfinnie Sep 16 '10 at 8:51
@sfinnie: See the search tips for a bit more. – Georg Fritzsche Sep 16 '10 at 9:22
@Georg: thx - will take a look there too. – sfinnie Sep 16 '10 at 16:03
@Tobias, fixed. – Lance Roberts Sep 17 '10 at 8:41

The intags:mine operator returns only posts that appear in tags you have marked as favorite.

Applying this to @LanceRoberts answer:

But neither this, nor his suggested method, support sorting by date asked ☹

Edit: Martin Smith provided this search, which will sort chronologically:

Thanks all!

Edit: Another improvement: skip closed (and on hold) posts
