What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

I'm far too lazy to figure out what tags I should add to my Interested tags list in order to get the best viewing experience.

I propose that Stack Overflow should work out what questions I'm interested in based on my questions, answers, comments, favourites and maybe even a little bit based on my views (a bit like how Last.fm figures out what music I'm interested in)

  • Its less work for the user.
  • It will hopefully give a better chance of highlighting the questions that a user is likely to participate in (based on their past actions), rather that the questions that the user thinks they are likely to participate in.

If anyone is interested in a tag that they haven't previously participated in then it seems likely that they should be searching instead (although it seems like a good idea to weigh in favour of question types that the user has been participating in recently so that if they pick up a new technology suitable questions will be highlighted)

@Robert - Yeah, I've seen that - related (possibly inspired by), but I'd like to see this on pages other than the homepage. –  Justin Nov 1 '10 at 22:41
