Searching for question having strictly a certain set of tag

Would be nice to be able to get a list of questions that are only tagged with selected tag (e.g. if I'm asking for C# - don't give me a list of questions tagged with C# and Sharepoint).

  • stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/c%23+-sharepoint solves your example case, but I'm not sure what good it would be to search for questions with no tag other than c#

  • Say I want to see questions that are specifically about language features of C#; I don't want Sharepoint, EF, etc mixed in.

  • Also, I think a lot of questions are overtagged. You see a question about EF that has C#, .NET, EF, and maybe database tags. Well, it probably is a strictly EF question - language doesn't really matter (as long as it's .NET, which is implied); same with database.

Searching for only a specific tag is probably never useful, except to do tag-cleanups by finding improperly tagged questions (few questions should have only a single tag).

But you can already exclude tags from your search quite easily. If you want questions related to but not , simply search for:

[C#] -[sharepoint]
  • That's not quite it, but it gets there. Thanks for the hint!
