I was said to use the search bar to see how upvoted questions look like and that too new ones. I saw the filter and if I filter by votes, I get 11-year-old posts and if I filter for newest I get 0 votes posts.

I have zero or less votes for all Stack Overflow posts. I need to see new posts that have a good number of upvotes.

  • Thanks for the example @rene. It would have definitely taken more time for me to understand the syntax of searching otherwise. Commented Jun 15, 2020 at 20:42

You can change the 0 to any number you like, so if you want to set a lower bound of 10, raise it to 10.

So, the query would be is:q score:10 [tag1] if you wanted to see the questions with a score of 10 or more in a specific tag. To find the most recent, change the sort to "Newest" as you already figured out. If you are interested in high-scoring answers, you can use is:a instead of is:q.

Some of these helpful search terms are listed at the top of the page when you click in the search bar:

And the full list of search functions can be seen on the advanced search help page by clicking "Search help" in the pane's lower right corner.

  • the question title is about answers so an is:a might be relevant as well ...

  • .... meh. I'd originally excluded the is:q but, yeah. ... odd, that isn't one of the examples shown in the helper menu.

    It would be awesome if we could have a link that opens the search page with the advanced search tips expanded ... the few tricks I tried all failed miserably
