Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Many users open StackOverFlow and check the tags which they like the most. Since we have Favorite tags(which contains users favorite tags), it should be rather placed above 'Unanswered tags'. This way, users will be able to access the favorite tags easily. He need not grope through the big list of tags and go to his favorite area of expertise or interest.

Uh, my favorite tags are displayed above "unanswered tags", whatever those are. Are you looking in the column to the right on the homepage? – Cody Gray Aug 11 '11 at 11:58
When Unanswered button is clicked. At that instance when user wants to check the unanswered queries of his interests, the fav tags wont be on top right corner. I was just suggesting it would be nice if it was on the top. Nothing else. – Anuj Balan Aug 11 '11 at 12:09
On my version of Stack Overflow, the unanswered tags displayed at the top are my favorite tags. Does your screen look different? – Cody Gray Aug 11 '11 at 12:10
Go to main StackOverFlow, click Unanswered button, now check the top right side. You will not find favorite tags on the top. If it is present there, users can directly check the unanswered questions from his fav tags(whichever he clicks on). As of now, he has to scroll down and select the tag. Am talking only about this context(Go to main StackOverFlow, click Unanswered button, now check the top right side.). – Anuj Balan Aug 11 '11 at 12:13
Got that. But the exact same tags are displayed in both sets. Not sure what the problem is. I don't have to do any scrolling. – Cody Gray Aug 11 '11 at 12:15
oh ok. Well for me its not like that. Its different on landing @ and @ – Anuj Balan Aug 11 '11 at 12:18
Thats the reason why I had raised this suggestion. – Anuj Balan Aug 11 '11 at 12:35

You do realize that most questions (I would guess around 85%) on the Stackoverflow homepage are questions with your favorite tags? So you don't have to "grope through the big list of tags and go to [your] favorite area of expertise or interest", your favorite questions are right on the front page!

True. Well I have to scroll till the end of the page at times to get to my fav tag. So why not place them on top of 'Unaswered tags' – Anuj Balan Aug 11 '11 at 10:05
