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'd like to be able to search SO for my questions and my questions only. As of now, the only way I see that as being possible is if I search for my name in the search box. Being that I may be mentioned elsewhere and that other people may have similar usernames, This can be quite limiting.

Can we get a "Search my account" feature please? I'm extending this request to a graphical button, like "advanced search" or something.

Well, there was this question asking for an Advanced Search UI. In particular, Bill's UI was functional, although I don't know if it's had any recent work done on it or anything. – Grace Note Nov 12 '10 at 19:13

You can restrict your searches to posts by yourself by appending user:me before your search terms.

See: for all of the search options.

Well, I'd like to see some sort of GUI for this. Thanks though! – Moshe Nov 7 '10 at 6:36
@Moshe: technically it is a GUI.. – Andreas Bonini Nov 12 '10 at 20:25
@Kop - I mean a GUI, like Bills UI mentioned above. – Moshe Nov 17 '10 at 3:45
@Moshe: mine was a joke, I was saying that technically since it's a textbox in a browser it is a guy =) – Andreas Bonini Nov 17 '10 at 14:43
