Is there any way of seeing more than 500 items of Pro questions and 500 items of Easy questions?



The search function is very specific so may not call up what you want, nor can you check for context etc.



So sometimes being able to scroll through the lot would be ideal. Or is it too big?

Marcus, what I don\'t want is to narrow down, rather the contrary, to be able to scroll through more than 500, becuase that way I could latch onto those items taht appear to be interesting, as part of a learning process.

I agree. Perhaps a feature that allows you to narrow the last 50, say, Kudoz in one language pair, under one subject. Sometimes I\'d like to review past answers simply for learning reasons and not specifically looking for anything. And sometimes it\'s faster to scroll down a list than going through the search function. Is this possible, Jason?



Although, Ailish, I think that the present search function is functioning well. I often do searches for entire phrases and I simply enter one word (which I\'m sure is part of a sentence previously posted) and I always get good results. You can also try doing approximate searches by typing \"govern*\" instead of \"government\" for example.
