What happened to the ignore option in the mouseover on the tags?
Easier way to add a FAVOURITE or IGNORE Tag

I have a lot of tags in my ignore list, and I mean a lot. It would be cool if I were able to simply click on a tag to ignore it, or maybe use a drag'n'drop action, moving the tag I want to ignore over the ignore list.

I use the ignore list for tags that I do not know anything about and tags that I know I am not going to answer questions for in the near future. Currently, I have to scroll a lot whenever I want to ignore a tag because my ignore list is so big. I do not want to subscribe to tags, because I like to "surf" the many new questions, and the ignore list helps me see only the questions that I know I can contribute to, either by comment or answer.

And some nice screenshots in Idea For Ignored Tags. – Arjan Dec 16 '11 at 22:47
@Arjan ooooh my god :D I have actually tried to hover over, but I looked for a "ignore"-kinda link. I have maybe just found a hidden feature ;) thanks!! – mslot Dec 16 '11 at 22:56
All credit to the creator of those screenshots! Though aligned horribly ;-) – Arjan Dec 16 '11 at 23:22

You can already do this by clicking twice on the small star on the thing that shows when you hover over a tag.

click twice to ignore

The first click makes it a favorite, the second ignores it and the third click returns the tag to the default state.

Thanks! I never would have found that. Never. – sarnold Dec 17 '11 at 0:30
