Unable to filter search with “user:me”

Sometimes i show question that have been asked previously means exactly duplicate. Now I've answered the previously asked question. so now if i have to search for question in my home page i have to go through all questions until i get the right one so i can give duplicate question url.

Is there functionality available to search for a specific question in question list that I've answered on SO?


As Sachin said in his answer we can search by user:me <text> but its not working currently.

So is there any other option for this?

When will user:me starts working?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@Nick: that question is not my duplicate. I'm asking about searching technique in SO not that user:me is not proper. My edit asks that question but my main question is techniques for searching a question in SO. – Harry Joy Feb 11 '11 at 4:17
True it's not an exact duplicate (though it is a duplicate of many other questions), I pointed it there because people finding this having issues need to see it's fixed :) – Nick Craver Feb 11 '11 at 8:48
@Nick: can i have other duplicate questions for reference? – Harry Joy Feb 11 '11 at 8:54

Yes, there is such functionality in the SO. you need to type "user:me <search keywords>" in the search textbox on SO. You can also use "user:<yourid> <search keywords>". This will search for keywords in all your questions and answers.

Unfortunately, this feature is not working currently - Unable to filter search with "user:me"

@Harry - Unfortunately, this feature is currently not working in SO as given in my link. Once this bug is fixed, it will start working. :( – Sachin Shanbhag Feb 10 '11 at 6:04
