Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Questions that are tagged with one of my "ignored" tags on Stack Overflow are hidden completely. On Server Fault, however, those questions are "lightened" to lower their contrast. Why is that?

Is it just because at first there were fewer questions on SF so it didn't make sense to hide some of them? Are there plans to apply the same logic to both sites (eg hide on both or "lighten" on both)?

It's a user preference

Hide ignored tags.

Huh! I guess I must've turned that on so long ago on Stack Overflow that I'd forgotten about it! Thanks Ian. – Matt Hamilton Jul 13 '09 at 4:29
