I'm new here and have been playing around and trying out various things. I might be dumb but I can't work out how to use favourite tags to filter questions. I've set a small number of favourite tags on Stack Overflow but whenever I go to the 'Filtered Questions' section on Stack Exchange I don't see any of them--the list is empty (I can, however, see the complete list of my sites). Any help will be much appreciated!
OK, I can see them now! So--excuse my answering my own question--my guess is it can take a long time to sync favorite tags (even well over 12h) whereas the link to manual syncing won't show up as long as the list is empty.
If someone more competent can (dis)confirm this, it would be helpful.
