I was just looking for whether StackOverflow can be localized somehow or what the current state of development is regarding this topic. But it is difficult to find anything because I get lots of old questions, which are now not interesting.

I've encountered the same thing sometimes on SO: you search for something (e.g. JavaScript) and find a lot of things that are already outdated.

So how can I filter out such questions?

  • Just realized you don't mean "old" but rather "deprecated" - something can be deprecated after a week. Found a dupe. :) Sep 20, 2015 at 6:47
  • @ShadowWizard Interesting: Upvote questions as, yes, deprecated. That would be a nice system. Better than some time based filtering. Thank you for the link ;-)

Per the help-centre you can use created: and lastactive: to specify a date range.

year only – e.g., created:2012..2013 searches posts created from January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2013; created:2012 searches posts created from January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012.

or relative like so

if you want to see all the posts active in the last three months, use lastactive:3m..

and add your desired search terms to that to get what you want.

  • Awkward... didn't know about the lot of options! You live and lern. I mainly used stupid Google to find things on SO...
