I want a filter that does the following: - 1 site only (!) - finds questions that match any of my favorite tags - but none of the tags I've identified as never interesting to me

The closest I've found is:

  • The canned "favorite tags" filter, which matches on all sites, and includes questions with tags I've identified as never interesting (e.g. computer languages I don't know)

  • The build-your-own-filter page, which requires me to reenter the list of favorite tags, and still has no ability to reject certain tags.

  • Someone asking feedback for a complex query to find questions like those someone has just answered at Help build a good "Find The Next Question To Answer" query

Have you got such capabilities buried somewhere?

    Maybe I'm missing something because I don't filter that much, but doesn't every filter correspond to a unique URL that you can bookmark?

You can achieve this by combination of the following:

  1. On your profile page, click Edit Profile & Settings -> Preferences -> Hide questions in your ignored tags

  2. Use the search query intags:mine is:q, sorting results by newest. Like this.
