I just signed up for an account on Ask Different. After some time, I noticed that Ask Different got automatically added to my personalized list of Communities in the site switcher.

As I had personalized the list, there shouldn't be any automated changes taking place.

This is getting very annoying. I have been looking at some sites which I reached via the Hot Network Questions. Some of the content is interesting/good and I want to vote/comment. To do that I need to create an account (which happens fairly frequently). As soon as I do that, the site gets added to my manually created list.

This was originally intentional.

However, we talked it over again and as of next build (2014.3.12.2047 on MSO, 2014.3.12.1449 elsewhere) we won't be automatically appending new sites you join to your custom list.

  • You mean it won't be appended to personalized lists or it won't be appended at all (even to the automatic/default list)?

    @AsheeshR Personalized lists. It can/will/should appear on the default list, especially for people with fewer than 5 site profiles.
