This userscript filters search results on Stack Exchange sites by reputation of the asker. To use it, add a search parameter such as is:25 where 25 is the minimum reputation required. Since the search engine interprets is:number as allowing both questions and answers, be sure to have something else that restricts the results to questions: for example, is:q does this in the query

is:q intags:mine is:25

(means: questions with my favorite tags, asked by users with 25+ reputation). Other parameters such as closed:0 or answers:0 implicitly restrict the results to answers, eliminating the need for is:q.

The reason this script overloads is: parameter instead of introducing something like rep: is that an unrecognized parameter would be treated as text to search for.

Sample query: newest Stack Overflow questions with no answers, within your favorite tags, with asker's reputation 25+.

The script uses Stack Exchange API: one API call per search page load. Since it simply hides some of the search results, one might end up with an empty page. It's best to have page size = 50 in search and set a moderate reputation requirement.

  • Not sure if I understand your query correctly but is:q intags:mine is:4000 does not return questions whose OP has 4000 rep. :-( – MonkeyZeus May 1 at 18:52
  • @MonkeyZeus The script simply hides the questions from low-reputation users from the page. If all questions on the page get hidden, you get an empty page (paginating to page 2, 3, ... might bring some). This isn't really meant for such high threshold; few questions are asked by 4000+ rep users. – user43888 May 1 at 18:55
