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

I have a question, that I know was answered by a specific user, but I can't find it via a general search. Can I narrow my search to that user's responses? If not, please make it so.

I took off the [feature-request] tag and put in [support] instead as you should be able to do this with the current search. – Jeff Mercado Feb 27 '11 at 4:50

Add user:USERID to your search, replacing USERID with their actual user id. View more advanced search options at

I would not have been offended if you had simply said RTFM. I deserved it. :) – raven Feb 27 '11 at 20:03
I was hoping to be able to search for something like questionuser:me answeruser:someone, to see a user's answers to my questions, without knowing the subject of a question. I guess this isn't possible? – Danny Beckett Feb 17 '14 at 23:21
Has there been any update on the status of what @DannyBeckett said - questioner:me answerer:someone? I know I'm over 4 years late here, but I didn't want to start a new question. – Raystafarian Jul 29 '15 at 15:30
