Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

Is there a way to find most voted questions from a certain time period, e.g from the last month? Now I can find a tag and then select "Votes" but AFAICS this is list of "all time most voted".

If you have 10,000+ reputation or are a diamond moderator, this is available in the moderator tools section.

Ok, thanks, I think it would be a good idea to get this available for all users. – jrara Jun 12 '11 at 5:19

I imagine these search operators didn't exist when this question was posted but it is possible to restrict the search to posts last active or created within a specific date range.

So searching for is:question created:2013-10-21..2013-11-20 and selecting the "Votes" tab will bring back the top voted questions in the last month (at the time of writing).

If you know sql, or are willing to learn, check out http://data.stackexchange.com/ - it contains a relatively recent copy of the site, with some things (like voting records) removed.

You can use a little SQL to find something similar to what you need - such as highest voted posts that were originally created during a specific time period.
