I like to utilize filters at the main site at stackexchange.com to view questions for subjects that interest me or that I feel I might be able to contribute in. The filters there seem quicker than going to each site and then narrowing it down to the tag that I wish to view.
My expectation would have been that the view from stackexchange.com using a filter would be similar to the information available when I am actually at the site viewing questions with a certain tag. However, this seems to not be the case. Specifically, questions viewed via Stack Exchange filters instead of at the site + tag seem to lack the following pieces of information:
- How many votes the question has received (main difference imo)
- # of views
- visible rep of person asking the question (clicking on a link to their profile isn't the same)
- on hover description of a tag
- An extra visual cue (red border usually) that a question lacks an answer
I also don't see them as options I can toggle on when creating or editing a filter.
