There is a preference to hide ignored tags, which is very helpful to weed out questions that I know nothing about. But my ignored tags list keeps getting longer and longer as I try to hide tags/questions that get in the way of the ones that I really might be able to answer...

It would be very helpful to be able to hide non-Favorite tags. This way I can mark tags that I have an interest in, and easily focus on related questions.

Of course, it would helpful to be able to easily toggle the hide on and off so that I can turn it off from time to time and see if there are other new tags that I should be watching.

  • "ignore non-favorite" can be reworded to "show only favorite" I think

It sounds like you might get better mileage from selecting the interesting tags.

Something like: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/php+or+javascript+or+forth
which yields:

php javascript or forth

and has the usual newest/featured/active tabs.

  • Excellent suggestion!
