There are a lot of topics and a lot of questions. Also, there is an approach to a vote up and vote down feature for research effort questions. Also have a filter option for tag and most voted questions. I think there is something to improve the filter option.


It's my imagination for a search/filter option to improve user convenience, if something is going wrong or is cluttered. I will be happy if you comment or suggest a better GUI or also put as an answer your requested feature for discussion... (I add discussion and support for that.)

Feature Request for the GUI

Example Model

A user can easily get a specific day's research effort question

Enter image description here

  • This is already part of the custom search options. So why should it be added?

  • Look at this page: stackoverflow.com/help/searching It describes ways to achieve what you're after. For example, first search; second search (which is empty because it's not yet 2021-01-01).

    I assume your request is to add the date as a search option in the filter GUI, not whether such a feature exists, correct?

    @noor: Then you should have dropped 2. Most Vote and 3. Tags Tags as an addition, because that cluttered the issue.

This is already possible when searching, as is described in the advanced search help:


You can use specific dates or date ranges to narrow results down to posts created or active within a certain time period, using the following operators:

  • created: to specify when the posts were created
  • lastactive: for posts active in a specified time period

Dates can be entered in the following formats:

  • Absolute dates:

    • 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.
    • year and month – e.g., created:2012-04..2012-05 searches posts created between April 1, 2012 and May 31, 2012.
    • day, month, and year – e.g., lastactive:2012-04-03 searches posts who were last active between 12:00 AM on April 3, 2012 and 11:59 PM on April 3, 2012.
  • Relative dates:

    • 1y, 1m, and 1d are shorthand for "last year", "last month", and "yesterday" - e.g., if today is April 15, created:1m searches posts created between March 1 and March 31. (You can substitute any number for 1 to look back that many years, months, or days.)

    • Relative dates in a range (1y..) look back to the same date in the previous period - e.g., if you want to see all the posts active in the last three months, use lastactive:3m.. On April 15, that will show posts from January 15 up to the most recently active. You can close the range as well: lastactive:3m..1m.

Please note that all times are recorded in UTC; the results may not match your timezone.
