It would be handy if someone could essentially create a custom questions time line. Ideally it would allow questions from more then one tag to be displayed at once.

For example, if someone's interesting tags include PHP, jQuery, and ecommerce, they can create a time line that show all question tagged with PHP, jQuery, or ecommerce. Basically if a question has one of these tags, even if it doesn't have any of the other tags, it will be listed in that users questions time line.

This would make it easier for those of us who only want to follow a specific set of tags. Especially when that number of tags is greater then a handful. Even better when many of those tags get very few questions. It would beat having to open up each tag's timeline every time we log into SO to see if new questions have been asked with that tag.

You seem to be using "timeline" differently than what it normally means on this site: see meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/36303/… and consider rewording your suggestion? –  Ether Jan 31 '10 at 19:09

That's possible already:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/php+or+jquery+or+ecommerce

His proposal sounded much more complicated than your solution. I'm not sure if this is what he wants. But we can still point him to the RSS feeds... –  Ladybug Killer Jan 31 '10 at 18:48
    
This is what I'm looking for. I guess my next question is how would someone know to do this? If I didn't ask this question I would never have figured it out. –  John Conde Jan 31 '10 at 23:07
    
How should c++ be added to this list? I tried both "java+or+c++" (unsurprisingly doesn't work) and the encoded form "java+or+c%2b%2b", which has the same result. –  Gareth Stockwell Feb 10 '10 at 14:39
    
@Gareth Stockwell: The encoded form should work. But you're right, it doesn't. Please file a bug report for this. –  balpha Feb 10 '10 at 15:04

@balpha: see Jeff's reply. If the tag name contains a +, then you need to uses spaces, rather than + symbols, to delimit the tag list in the URL. –  Gareth Stockwell Feb 12 '10 at 16:15
    
Thanks @Gareth! –  balpha Feb 12 '10 at 16:43
