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

I have added pretty many ignored tags, so the relevant section on the right side is quite large. In fact, it is so large that question page vertical size is usually determined by the right auxiliary column, not by the main contents. This creates a large empty space gap between question list and page links (prev/1/2/.../next) and forces additional scrolling.

Request: please make interesting/ignored tags sections collapsible, preferably with collapsed state remembered across pages, so that ignored tags list doesn't make pages unnecessary long.

Give a mouse a cookie? And then the Recent-Tags section and then Recent-Badges and then and then ... all the other sidebar sections. – rlb.usa Apr 22 '10 at 23:09
It is a bit ironic to have your screen taken over by ignored tags – Brad Mace Jul 2 '11 at 3:52

I'll second this. That'd be a useful feature.

Remembering collapse state might be more trouble than it's worth, however. I'd say make them collapsed be default, always, with an expansion only a click away.

I third this and +1 for faster page loads without inconsistent behavior across logged in machines. – Tim Post Jun 21 '10 at 18:15

I had same idea. I also prepared a mock-up! Check it out: enter image description here

Please make something with that, I have over 100+ ignors and it destroys me viewing SO.

I've created a user script to collapsing it for now, but please have this feature in mind.

Stack Ignore Collapse .user.js

Also posted on StackApps as a script:

Collapse interesting and ignored tags sections!

We will be implementing this this week. Ignored tags will be collapsed to one line with an ellipsis button to expand.

This is now live on all sites.
