What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

The search field is auto-filled with the tag name on search pages. I think the same should be done for question pages, or at least those with a lot of answers. This would make it easier to check for duplicate answers to such questions before posting.

That would only benefit .001% of questions -- most have far less than 30+ answers -- and it would be annoying the other 99.999% of the time.

Even if we did it only on questions with 30+ answers, why would I want to encourage so-called "questions" with that many answers?
