Favorite questions on Stack Overflow I feel is highly unused feature of all the features provided on the site. (This again is my personal opinion)

I have favorited around 90 question till date and it gets very very very difficult if I want to search for a question which I remember I have favorited, which defeats the entire purpose of one favouriting a question, so here is my small suggestion.

Favorites by tags

Please share your opinions on this.

  • Can't get what is your exact feature request?? And are you talking about favorite questions or tags? – hims056 Feb 23 '13 at 4:16
  • Tag filter in Favourites question – Yasser Feb 23 '13 at 4:16
  • While helpful, the solution from @hims056 is inadequate (as acknowledged -- 'it would be nice'). It requires intentional effort -- but I often can't even remember what I forgot. A list of tags that each link to one's list of related Favorites would let me browse Favorites for maintenance and review. But, I imagine filtering-by-tag presents challenges on the processing side. – Smandoli Apr 8 '16 at 15:44

It would be nice if it is implemented. But you can achieve this without this feature. You can search for any tag from your favorite questions.

Type in the search box: [sql] infavorites:mine

    yes, does the job. I am accepting this answer, but you know still it would be better if this feature is implemented, so that one does not have to remember the above syntax. Thanks for sharing, also is there any other such hidden tricks which you can share ? – Yasser Feb 24 '13 at 4:59

    Yeh... The hidden tricks are actually not hidden! Just go to search page and click on Advanced Search Tips. And the rest is yours.. – hims056 Feb 24 '13 at 13:50
