I'm trying to participate in the "Burn the queue" squad and when I visit the C# tag link provided in this answer: https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/223498/194126 (which is: https://stackoverflow.com/review/close/?filter-tags=c%23&burn=1)

..I review a single C# question before it jumps to C (the filter is just filter-tags=c). It looks like it removes the URL encoded hash.

Not a big issue since I can just re-add the hash myself.. but thought it worth mentioning.

  • yeah, looks like problems with the filter-tags, it can't handle parameter with #, even if you put # back, it still shows the result from c

  • Workaround: Open the filter dialog and click Okay. That will make that the filter is applied correctly and stays applied.

  • @rene That doesn't work for me. In fact.. even with C# in the filter.. pressing okay shows me plain old C. Feb 28, 2014 at 10:19

  • I repro in IE11 as well. For c#-4.0 the workaround helped but in this case not...

This was an issue with a 3rd party history plugin we use for the review pages.

A fix is on it's way out and will be with you in build rev 2014.2.28.2001 on meta and 2014.2.28.1410 on sites.
