Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

Possible Duplicates:
Filter view to show only interested
Tab for interesting questions

Probably a dumb noob question but I can't find the answer anywhere - how do I only view questions that are tagged with one or more of my "interesting" tags? Evidently SO knows which questions these are, as it highlights them, but they are relatively few and far between and I'd like to improve the visual S/N ratio when viewing new questions.

Many of us agree, but it's not the way the owners want the site to run. They want us to typically see all questions, so that an asker stands a better chance of getting their answer.

...but you should've noticed that the question had been asked before several times. –  Rob Farley Jan 21 '10 at 23:12
    
have the owners actually come out and said that? I've not seen a definite "we will not do it" in any of the questions I've seen raised on the topic... –  HorusKol Jan 22 '10 at 3:32
    
Umm... I'm sure I've seen it somewhere. Not sure though. Maybe Jeff will jump in and verify it... –  Rob Farley Jan 22 '10 at 5:27

That's unfortunate - my areas of expertise are somewhat "niche", so typically there is only about 1 question in 100 that I might feel qualified to answer - it takes a long time to wade through all the pages of new questions just to see if there's a question or two that I might be able to help with. –  Paul R Jan 22 '10 at 8:38
    
That's what tag searching is for :) –  uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Jan 22 '10 at 8:43

I feel your pain. I have about 8 tags that I'm interested in, and that's about it. Having the functionality for "Unanswered Questions" doesn't help either, because of the amount of poor advice given that still receives upvotes. –  Rob Farley Jan 22 '10 at 9:01

The asker stand little to no chance of an answer if their question is buried among a thousand others asked that day the and answerer has to wade through all the <strike>crap</strike> irrelevant stuff to find it. –  Lawrence Dol Jan 22 '10 at 9:44
