Separate question and answer in profile

+8
−0

I have asked 7 questions and answered 2 questions. Sometimes I go to my profile to visit my old questions and answers. I notice that the answers and questions are grouped together. There's a tag for answers ([tag:Answer]) but it is still not easy to find an answer in the middle of other questions. So, I think it would be very helpful if Codidact separated question and answer in profile pages like SE. Then, people like me can find answers and questions easily.

I agree; or give the ability to filter out questions or answers. I often go to the profile to find a link to some old post and then it's a bit messy to find. Lundin‭ 20 days ago

Yeah, we definitely want to improve that aspect of the profile page. We want to allow you to break posts out by type and also by category -- you shouldn't have to dig through all your Q&A posts to find that one article you posted in the "resources" category.

Because we can now add new post types, we can't just bake in a list. (The profile page has this problem now in the right column, where it breaks down post counts and votes by type. New types don't show up there.) We'll need to figure out how to make that dynamic. Making the post-type "pseudo-tag" clickable would help, but it's not a complete solution (that one article might be way down on your list). We have some design work yet to do here, and then of course we have to actually implement it. :-)

(My current thinking is: categories and "all" as tabs within the list, reflecting the presentation of the categories themselves, and then checkboxes for all post types used on that community. This would let you find your meta answers, all Q&A posts, etc. We could show the counts next to those options. But we'll need to figure out how to present all that cleanly including on small viewports.)

you shouldn't have to dig through all your Q&A posts to find that one article you posted in the "resources" category... Did you mean I should add further question on feature request in this question? I was actually thinking to do that but, Feature requests are best done as one question per feature (or set of closely-related features). you commented in one of my post that's why I wasn't doing that. And, I wasn't separating that question cause, Istiak‭ 19 days ago

@Istiakshovon‭ sorry for the confusion. I wasn't suggesting that you change anything, just taking your suggestion and talking about how we might address it along with a related problem. Feature requests can attract that kind of response sometimes as people think through how the feature might work. That's expected on Meta. Monica Cellio‭ 19 days ago

Sorting your own posts first by Q or A and then by tag from your own user profile would be ideal. On Someplace Else you'd use the site search [discussion] user:me to sort all your posts after tag, but that's both Q and A mixed. The user: ... search feature would be handy regardless.
