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

In the "review" section there is a list of tags on the right side. If you click it, the reviewable questions/answers get filtered.

Right underneath is the list of favorite tags, but if you click it you go back to the main questions section. Is this intended? I find it very counterintuitive and would expect it to behave the same as the tag links above.

That is a little weird, but it's actually kind of correct in an overall consistency way. When you're on a question list page, the favorite tags are under the related tags list, and they don't have the same behavior, either (related tags adds the tag to your search; favorite goes to that tag alone).

The rule is that, no matter where you are on the site, the favorite and ignored tags lists work the same way. I completely agree that it's confusing at first, but if you look at it from the network level, it kinda makes sense.

Well, the other example you mentioned honestly bugs me out as well. And even though I clicked the links there many times already, I still can't get used to its behaviour. I understand the point of consistency, but if it confuses users it still is a problem. Maybe move the list somewhere else then? – atticae Sep 16 '11 at 17:25
