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

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.

Cleaning up search questions here...declining this for the reasons @Jeff lists below. – Nick Craver Feb 15 '11 at 1:38

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?
