Hey all. I have asked many questions on this website and would like to search my questions for key terms using some kind of search bar, instead of trawling through them to find an old answer to one of my questions.

NOTE: I don't want to search for title terms as I often can't remember the way I worded the title of a question. Rather, I want to search the contents of my questions for key terms.

Is there any way to contact the administrators of this website to request functions such as the addition of such features as previously mentioned? Perhaps some kind of polling option would be cool too, to help admin gauge whether adding a function is worthwhile or not based on the amount of interest in it.

+1 @appreciatethehelp,

i support this request for both the "Questions" and the "Answers" sections in the user profile.

Also, sorting both these user lists in a custom sort order, would come in handy.

Currently the sort order seems to be fixed by { number of votes, then date } for both lists.

Click on the "give feedback" at the bottom of the page. The site uses Askbot software so it's unlikely functions you suggest would be made by LO.

However, it is reported here that the creator/developer Evgeny of the Askbot software is very nice and often ludicrously fast at responding to questions posted in the Askbot support forum https://askbot.org/en/questions/...

So I can request functions for Askbot, and therefore Libreoffice, through this forum?

If so I am also going to request that new users be required to indicate their Operating System, and have that information show up below their name. That way users don't need to ask for this info before answering questions.

I will also request an option to add this information for existing users.

It would also make sense to include the LO version, as solutions to problems are sometimes dependent on version. I guess there is no knowing whether, if Askbot is modified, ODF will actually upgrade to the newer version :-)

That's a good point.
