I find SE an amazingly well thought-out platform in so many respects, so I am a bit puzzled that what I am about to describe has not been solved/addressed yet.
I can specify my interests by keeping a list of tags that I want to follow. However, on the "my tags" unanswered tab (or on any other tab for that matter) I can not choose how the questions are ranked. They seem to be roughly ranked by descending number of votes, with occasionally some fresh stuff thrown in at the top.
As a result, much of this list feels quite stale, since it is made up of questions that have been collecting votes (and dust) for a while.
Hence my request: I would like to be able to click "I'm bored with this question, please don't show it to me for a while." so that my list actually fills up with things I haven't looked at or am not bored with yet, and I don't have to wade through screenfuls of oldtimers to detect a newcomer.
One variation could be "I'm bored with this question, please hide it until someone comes up with an answer of at least 3 upvotes".
