Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Inspired by this question, I actually rather thought of the opposite - to make ignored questions even more transparent. Currently, they are visible enough so it becomes a bit difficult to distinguish between ignored and not-ignored ones. At least for me.

My personal workaround was to check "Hide ignored tags", but that leads to weird "bugs" (undesirable behavior that is, I was told, by design).

I'm not sure how this issue should be solved. Apparently opinions differentiate quite a lot here, and customization like a slider controlling transparency are definitely overkill (and maybe not even possible to implement).

I've added a little styling of my own via Firefox's Stylish extension:

@-moz-document url-prefix("") {
  div.tagged-ignored a {
    color: #666666 !important;
  div.tagged-ignored div.excerpt,
  div.tagged-ignored div.views {
    display: none !important;
  div.tagged-ignored div.stats {
    font-size: 40% !important;
  div.tagged-ignored div.stats div.status,
  div.tagged-ignored div.stats div.status strong {
    background-color: #EEEEEE !important;
    color: #555555 !important;

This results in a shrunk and faded ignored question—but not completely gone.
