Since I can only answer a very few of the questions on SO, in niche topics, I filter most of the questions with 'ignored' tags set to invisible. As my list of ignored tags has grown, I've noticed the number of questions I can see on the questions page has been dropping.
It seems that the calculation for the number of questions to show per page is done before the ignored tags rule comes into effect and removes them. I'm now at the stage where I see less than 15 questions/page, even though I've selected the maximum available (50).
Is it feasible to provide either of the following?
- Add another button increasing the number of questions per page to, say 100 (so in my case, providing roughly 35 per page to look at). This is obviously avoiding the issue, since someone else will inevitably have even more ignored tags, but sounds relatively straightforward to implement, unless there are performance issues.
- Do the questions/page calculation after the ignored tags rule has removed them from view. This sounds like a lot more work but would permanently fix the problem.
