Nearly all of my SO activity involve my favorite tags. When I am done looking at a question or a tag feed, 90% of the time I want to visit a feed for one of my favorite tags.
This takes more clicks than it should because the 'Favorite Tags' div is positioned in different places on different pages.
- Home Page: Right, above everything else
- Questions tab: Right, below one or two 'Careers' divs
- Tag feed: Right, below tag count, Careers, Related Tags
- Individual Question page: Not displayed at all ('Tagged', 'Careers', 'Related Tags' appear instead)
I generally end up going back to the home page and then clicking my desired tag. To improve usability, I suggest that the Favorite Tags feature be tweaked such that (for a logged in user) the list of favorite tags always appears at the top of the right panel on these four pages.
