I have one problem which is bothering me in my daily interaction with SO. My list of favourite tags consists mainly of two more or less mutually exclusive groups of tags.

  • Know how topics I want highlighted and pointed out to me because I want to write answers, comments, edits, etc.

  • Want to learn topics I just want to follow and read up on for learning purposes.

I could solve this problem easily, if it were possible to group tags and assign each group a different highlight colour as well as subscribe to a separate feed.

How do you handle this and what do you think of this potential solution?

Does really nobody else have this problem? Why not? – markus Nov 30 '11 at 13:36

For me personally, the latter category simply isn't in my "interesting" tags because it doesn't make sense for me to follow questions in tags I don't know anything about. If I want to learn something, I will actively look around or search in the tag's questions.

But if you do things differently, I can see how this is a real problem... It should be possible to build a userscript for this half-way easily. Maybe someone wants to give it a shot?
