While trying to gauge the severity of a problem mentioned by another user, I found to my dismay that the various search operators (user:, followers:, closed:, etc.) only work if other keywords are present in the query.


  • followers:1 produces no results
  • followers:1 cheese produces 5 results.

Naturally, such operators work just fine by themselves on the other SE sites.


This is fixed now. Thanks.

We also just added the "committers:1" advanced option.


I guess this is related to the lack of substring search, too.
