Today when one choose to make a tag a favorite, it seems that all the tags in here are prioritized in the same way. While I may want to include many tags, because they are of interest, I would prefer that some tags was weighted more than others e.g. while I can have both A and B as favorites, I would prefer to get more A questions than B questions, even though I also like B.

So my feature request is, please add a way to prefer some tags to others.

Mockup of interface

                      

Explanation of mockup

The idea is that favorite tags that are already prioritized have a number descriping their prioritity (can be but not necessary weighted i.e. 4 means dobble as many as two). If they are not prioritized they have an up arrow, which can be used to change their priority.

I have them sorted in the image for better overview, and may be an idea. Ignore tags does not have any weight (you cannot ignore anything more?). To edit a weight, one clicks the number or uparrow and either a dialog popsup or the arrow/number becomes an inline number textbox, and one can write the new weight.

Rather than priority ordering, I'd like to have weights. –  vartec Jun 6 '11 at 9:02
    
Can you include a mockup of a UI that would make this intuitive for everyone, but also allows one to have "unordered" favorite tags? –  Jan Fabry Jun 6 '11 at 12:55

@Sha The link was to http://i.stack.imgur.com/HHmyp.png, and I tried removing the stack, which worked. So to make sure it was permanent, I reuploaded it to SO's imgur account. –  Cody Gray Mar 12 '12 at 9:39
