How to see the zero reply threads ONLY of the forums I am interested in ?


e.g. I have no interest in Linux-Mobile/Linux-Hardware and many others. There may be Linux-newbie/Linux-desktop/Linux-kernel...etc questions lost in the long list !

Sometimes I do bother to look back many pages to find the questions related to forums of my interest, but that's too tedious !

Anisha,
I haven't been able to find out how to do that myself. However, I think that would take away from the helpfulness of this site. Quite often I see posts in what would normally be the "Wrong" section, however I've been able to help them as well.

But I will agree with you, it would be nice to be able to do an Advanced Search of just a few certain Forums, and be able to sort the results by the number of Replies. I know I'm not just trying to find "Zero Reply" threads, but I try to look at the "Only 2 Replies" or "Only 1 Reply" threads.

Especially the "Only 1 Reply" threads, I've seen a few new people try to "bump" their thread, which just knocks it out of the Zero Reply search.

Since it is tedious to search for the zero reply threads of forums that interest me, now-a-days I don't even care to make some efforts to search for them by clicking the previous pages.

(I used to do that before but now I find it to be VERY tiresome).

It will be helpful for LQ as well as me, if I see the zero reply threads of my interest (in one or two clicks)!

You can accomplish this search as follows:

Go to Advanced search -> select "Find Threads with: At most 0 replies" - > select the forums you're interested in.

Well that was really helpful

I am not sure whether that search can be bookmarked ? Since I think searches have timeouts ! Is it so ?

I tried that now by selecting "Linux-Desktop" with "at most 0 replies" forum. Answered one question there but when I again selected the "Linux-Desktop" with "at most 0 replies", from that advanced search, the question I just answered was showing up there !!!!

I want only zero reply ones !!! How to accomplish that ?

Due to the way searches are cached, you may see the thread for a very short amount of time after you post in it.
