I've noticed that sometimes I get a "permalink" for a query that includes the parameters I gave. This is very inconsistent, and I failed to find out when it's provided and when it isn't.

So I have to construct the necessary URL by hand if I need to share the query results. I don't even know the syntax for this unless I accidentally came across a permalink with parameters in the past. (I did, and already forgot the syntax.)

So, I propose to either

  • Always provide a permalink to a query, complete with parameters, that would give the same result that you've got, or
  • Change the active page URL when I change the parameters so that I can copy it instead (I'll probably have to chop off #resultSets though, so this look inferior at first glance).
  • fork the query (or make sure you make an edit to one of your own queries) and run it. That will give you the permalink. – rene Jun 26 '18 at 11:24
  • @rene why should I need to fork a query to share the result of its run? Not to mention that would reference the forked query, not the original one. – ivan_pozdeev Jun 26 '18 at 11:26
  • Why does it matter? – rene Jun 26 '18 at 11:27
  • @rene It makes a mess of query history and things like stars. Plus it's completely counterintuitive. – ivan_pozdeev Jun 26 '18 at 11:29

  • Great idea. Was looking to do the same. – Hassan Voyeau Oct 3 '18 at 21:41
