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

Feature Request:

When a user returns to Stackoverflow, and his/her answer history is well known, suggest unanswered questions that he/she might be able to answer.

For instance:

  • If 'User A' has answered 50 C# questions, then he/she is well positioned to answer two C# questions that were asked 15 minutes ago.
  • So call these out to 'User A' when he/she loads Stackoverflow.

Really? So somebody who's answered 50 questions on ASP.NET MVC is well positioned to answer one on WPF, because they're both tagged [c#]? This is incredibly naïve and annoying solution to a problem that's already been solved. – Aarobot Dec 9 '10 at 21:42

With the new "interesting" sort on the front page of SO, I would probably be annoyed by this. I've answered a bunch of c# questions, but there are so many c# questions, and only a small percentage are answerable by me.

It would be obnoxious to have to close a banner:

Would you like to answer "I want ecommerse web in c# send codez" or "What is the memory usage of the oracle c# driver library" right now?

I'd say it's already [status-completed] - that's exactly what the New and Improved Homepage is supposed to do. See this blog entry, and the Homepage tag on Meta.
