I'm interested in seeing which tag is responsible for marking a question as 'interesting'. A slight change to its visual representation would be enough.
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
Questions only have 5 tags max. If you put a tag on your interested list, the very fact that the row in question is highlighted should be indication enough to remind you which of the tags in the question is calling for your attention.
Unless, as implied in comment, you have so many that you don't know what's in your list anymore.
I think this will be more distracting than helpful. When everything on the page has a special color, then the colors aren't really special anymore.
