Ability to search my stuff?

Sometimes I want to go back to an answer I got from a question or check an answer I answered, say, last year but I wouldn't be able to find it...because you have to go through 9 pages or so of your questions and answers.

I think that it would very useful if some sort of Filter was implemented (like in the Users Page) that would be used to help you traverse your questions and answers easily and find what you are looking for.

If you want to search your own answers on Stack Overflow, you can use AskJonSkeet - it doesn't just index my answers. The URL format is

http://www.askjonskeet.com/user/[userid]/[username]/search/

e.g.

http://www.askjonskeet.com/user/1288/bill-the-lizard/search/

Of course it would be nice to have something like this built into the SE engine - apart from anything else, I believe AskJonSkeet only indexes SO, not the other sites - but you may find it a helpful workaround for the moment.

Don't give me credit for it in terms of implementation - I didn't write it! –  Jon Skeet Jul 17 '09 at 8:52

yea, but if it wasn't for you, it probably wouldn't have been written ;p –  Andreas Grech Jul 17 '09 at 9:39
