Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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 usually ask questions related to my studies and I don't like people finding questions via my profile,I don't have a problem at all if they find it via tags.Is there a way I can hide my questions from my profile?

why has this question been downvoted? It wouldn't be useful for me but I think it's a valid request to be able to suppress any information you don't want others to see. – RoboShop Apr 18 '11 at 3:50

No, this is currently not possible. However, you can always log out of your account and ask your question anonymously—registration is not required to ask questions.

At present, some sites do require registration to ask questions. – user259867 Jun 18 '15 at 1:31

I would go so far as to say that I would see this as a mis-feature. I use the ability to look up another users past posts in several ways

  • Some times a really "bad" post could arise from either a user who isn't strong in English or from simple laziness. The user's history can be very helpful in determining which is most likely, and I can pitch my response accordingly
  • If I have some desire to reward another user (for a very good comment, or because their answer to my questions was just so great that a vote and an acceptance weren't enough, or whatever) I go to their profile and search for some other worthy content of theirs.
  • Some users show a pattern of asking vague, ill-founded, and underspecified questions with no obvious purpose. I don't want to spend my time answer them, and looking in their profile is how I tell.
