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

So after reading this question and this I was like yay! Now I don't need all that clutter on my Area51 profile page because I can un-follow Mathematics and GameDevelopment. But the problem is this: once you un-follow something the users rep goes down because that site does not have as many followers. Don't you think that if a person has been following since the definition stage and has not un-followed up to the beta stage the person that proposed the Q&A should not lose rep because of the un-follow?

Perhaps instead of having to unfollow a proposal, it should be possible to simply hide those sites that are in beta.

Sure that works too. – thyrgle Aug 6 '10 at 5:11
This could work. So how about if we re-disabled following/unfollowing beta proposals, and then hide sites in beta from your "followed" list? – Emmett Aug 6 '10 at 17:06
Sure, sounds good to me. – thyrgle Aug 6 '10 at 17:44
Ok, we just implemented this. – Emmett Aug 6 '10 at 17:52
