It is not obvious to users that one can enhance searches using Google number range style. I had to find this information out through this meta question. Enhance the Advanced Search Tips to note the basic syntax for search by range; there is enough vertical space for it.

Relevant text paraphrased from Nick Craver's source answer in Advanced Search Tips style:

range:     score:..2 (<= 2)
           score:-2.. (>= -2)
           score:-2..2 (>= -2 and <= 2)
           score:2..2 (2)

Sibling questions:

  • Also, you better believe I'm "score:-5.. answers:0" for a Reversal badge.

We have a whole help article dedicated to this now, already available here: https://meta.stackoverflow.com/help/searching

That help article will also be linked at the bottom of the advanced search tips when expanded after the next build rolls out. We can put a lot more detail into the article than the sidebar. If you see something missing or inaccurate, definitely suggest changes and we'll make it better.

  • There are probably several questions you'll need to status-completed, I think. :-)
