I've asked more than my share of questions. And sometimes, I want to do something and I know I asked it on SO, but can't remember it.

Is there a specific syntax for searching just my own questions? The reason I am asking is that when I do general searching, I get a lot of noise.

    But that gives also the questions that i've answered. What if i want to get my questions only? Edit: i've found out myself: user:me is:question Jun 30, 2011 at 15:52

SUPER NINJA SPECIAL SEARCH OPTION - Search by particular user

Use the syntax "user:[UserID]"

Example: user:22164

For the vainglorious searches on your own post, you can use the clipped shorthand:


Other Special Search Options can be found here: https://meta.stackoverflow.com/search


You can concat the search options mentioned here.

To get only your questions:

user:me  is:question

You must log in to answer this question.
