Is there a way to search for questions (is:question) which are

  • unanswered (answers:0)
  • have my tags ("tags:mine" would be fine, but it seems not to be allowed)
  • have been asked 12 hours ago or before

Rational: I want to skip trivial questions and I want to avoid the races which occur to answered these questions.

  • I have a similar request. I want to avoid the "first post" rush to answer new questions, so my current approach is to go to "Interesting questions" (the default) and scroll down until I get to questions answered 1 hour ago and start reading from there. Can we make this question into a feature request, or should we raise a new question? – richardneish Mar 21 '14 at 11:39

Nope, there is no such filter like 12 hours old questions in the search page. Also there is no option like tags:mine. You have to add tags manually.
E.g. answers:0 [sql]

If you want to search for questions elder than xx hours click on newest tab. Here you will get the latest question first.

  • Is my rational acceptable? Which option do I have no? Is there a way to post a feature request? – Claude Mar 14 '13 at 7:13
  • @Michael - What is your criteria for trivial questions? – hims056 Mar 14 '13 at 7:17
  • I have no clear cut criteria. I just want to avoid questions which can be answered within seconds after asking. I would prefer to focus on questions which need some research. Is this requirement ok? – Claude Mar 14 '13 at 7:20
  • @Michael - I don't think so. Because how can system decide the quality of the question? – hims056 Mar 14 '13 at 7:26
  • No, not system but statistics: a question which is unanswered since 12 hours needs probably some research to be answered, I think. – Claude Mar 14 '13 at 7:30
  • Fair enough. But as I already mentioned in the answer, we can search through newest tab. – hims056 Mar 14 '13 at 7:32

The filter -created:1d is available. Do you really need it to be 12 hours, or is 24 good enough?

  • Thank you! Of course 24 hours are good! – Claude May 18 '15 at 15:19

Not exactly what you want. But you can go to the Unanswered questions, and then to the "my tags" tab.

There should be something you can answer.

  • But it shows questions with no upvoted answers – hims056 Mar 14 '13 at 7:15
  • Yes, and I could move forward and skip all question asked between now and 12 hours before :) but this is not the solution I was looking for. A separate and configurable tab ("serious question" ;) would be great ... maybe only available if one has a certain amount of reputation. – Claude Mar 14 '13 at 7:16
