So I'm trying to use "unanswered" -> "my tags" list on SO:

The site says:

questions with no upvoted answers
in your tags
firefox dom xul xulrunner firefox-addon xpcom gecko google-wave mozilla firefox-extension

Listing several first questions from that list in order:

This question First entry not easy to click issue in firefox,a bug? is not on the list even though it's tagged "firefox" and was asked just now (no answers or votes).

So what exactly is the "my tags" subtab of the "unanswered" tab is supposed to list and in what order?

(FWIW, didn't find this in the "official" faq, nor searching here)

  • BTW, I'd expect that list to list all the questions with one of my tags in the last modified (e.g. edited, commented, or replied-to) order or asked order. – Nickolay Oct 26 '09 at 11:24

It is sorted by votes. So I guess it is in that list, but because it has no votes yet, you have to flip through the pages.

  • Aha (by question-votes)! Thanks. Seems obvious in hindsight... Anyway, do you know what order is it sorted in the groups having the same score? Seems to be by the text in "modified", so is it "question-last-modified date"? – Nickolay Oct 26 '09 at 12:28

    Atypical for Jeff to not sort posts with the same votes randomly. But it looks like they are sorted by modified date as you've assumed. – Ladybug Killer Oct 26 '09 at 12:41
  • The question was that I'm not 100% sure what "Modified" refers to. Does it include replies and comments or just the question edits? – Nickolay Oct 26 '09 at 12:50

    Includes question edits and replies, no comments. – Ladybug Killer Oct 26 '09 at 13:07
  • Thanks again! (yeah, a comment requires at least 15 characters, so I'll keep typing and typing and typing...) – Nickolay Oct 26 '09 at 13:09

Confirmed, I added the firefox and firefox-addon tags to my list and got Question number 1620422 but not 1624036

One thing though, there are no questions newer than 18 hours old in my list but I know there are a few that are unanswered. So could it be that there is a time limit on when questions enter this list.

  • Time limit would be fine if I at least knew the way the list was sorted. Right now I can only assume it's sorted randomly, which means that in order to track it, you have to scan it all. – Nickolay Oct 26 '09 at 11:42
