I know I can view the newest questions and see the dates of questions/answers, but is there a way to search for questions within a specific date range? I've been trying to edit and clean up old questions, and so far, I'm stuck using the
page parameter to jump to relatively old questions, e.g. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/python?page=1000&sort=newest and guessing as to the range.
This question has come up before, but the discussions and answers haven't seemed to reach a consensus. Is this feature not planned in the foreseeable future, are there technical limitations to it, or are there already search features that obviate the need for it?
EDIT: For possible syntax, I find something like this logical:
I like this syntax because a) it seems to mesh with existing syntax and b) it's simple to understand. Personally, I'm familiar with this syntax because Gmail utilises a similar form, so any suggestions are welcome in case it only seems logical to Gmail users.
This question posited some ideas, but also raised the point (in my opinion, a minor one) that the syntax doesn't inform the user whether or not it's inclusive or exclusive. I have no opinion on that, so if this feature is implemented, it can probably be implemented based on whatever criteria someone sees fit.
