I want to be able to bulk add or remove tags from my watched lists of interesting and ignore using wildcards.

So if I entered [php*] into the tag field it would then either add or remove all tags that match the seed wildcard (i.e.: [php], [php4], [php5], [php-framework], etc.).

well, you can already use wildcards.

Entering "php*" without the quotes will highlight anything matching [php], [php4], [php5], etc.

entering "php*" without quotes adds them, but how about removing them? what's the syntax? –  user144708 Mar 19 '10 at 12:58
    
@1ch1g0 it doesn't add those tags separately. It adds one php* "special" tag. You remove this the same way you remove any other tag. –  Joel Coehoorn Mar 19 '10 at 14:17
    
@Joel, what i mean is, say i already have tags php4, php5, phpbb for example. how to remove in one go ? right now, i have to click on the cross (remove icon) ON EACH tag everytime i want to remove tags. –  user144708 Mar 19 '10 at 15:09

@1ch1g0 - is that really such a burden? –  Joel Coehoorn Mar 19 '10 at 16:02
