This might be better suited for Meta.SO, but the problem is particularly bad here, so that's where I'm asking.

Of the active questions on the Programmers home page, 7 are closed and another 2 are in negative voting territory. This is a given as the scope of Programmers is much tighter than the other sites. But it's a pain to navigate. Is there any way to filter the questions so that only open questions are visible?

  • I know there are a lot of questions on the closing of questions here, but this is specifically about making P.SE easier to navigate, not about the moderation policy per se. – Ciaran Jan 9 '12 at 6:25

There's no preference setting to show or hide closed questions, but you can bookmark a search:


This shows you the open question sorted in the descending order by recent activity. See more search tips here.

  • I would really like a user account preference. I'm on here to help, not so much to get answers. And there are many closed questions here specifically. The related questions when composing a question should be unfilterable though, to see the duplicates and click on them instead of finishing the question. – Henrik Erlandsson Apr 19 '13 at 7:10
