  • Say, I want to close one of my C# threads from few days ago. However, I am not able to find it. I'd like to be able to filter by the forum, this way it will be much easier to find.

  • Ok, thanks. It didn't reflect in my activity or points, so I didn't know if it was here from before or from today.

  • Say, I want to close one of my C# threads from few days ago. However, I am not able to find it.

    First they would have to fix the broken search.

    Ref.

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vbgeneral/thread/436c0821-e7a7-4ba6-8a0a-b34b0ec37ba6/#436c0821-e7a7-4ba6-8a0a-b34b0ec37ba6

    implies that your problem would be solved right now by:

    meta:Search.MSForums.ThreadContributorUserName(Naomi)

    plus

    meta:Search.MSForums.GroupName(visualcsharp)

    which finds 10, including some duplicates due to language.

    The date problem would be solved by an obvious enhancement to the search too.  E.g. allow people to avoid wasting their time looking at old stuff by being allowed to order results by Last Replied date or even just putting some timestamp info into their "relevant" hits so they can ignore things that way.
