Watched Tags represents the tags/questions that the user is interested in or could answer. However, the current use-case for Watched Tags seems to be to click each tag in the Watched Tags panel on the Home page individually to find questions related to these tags.

i.e. If I watch 5 tags, I would need to click each of the 5 links in turn.

Proposed improvement:

Top Questions on the Home page has tabs for Interesting, Featured, Hot, etc. I propose adding Watched Tags to the list. I imagine this as a single place where a user could see all questions related to the tags they're watching.

i.e. This view would be one list of questions related to any of the 5 tags I'm following.


The new Custom Question Lists functionality already does this, though it's a few more clicks. It's currently in beta testing and you need to opt in first.

By default, it contains a view with all unanswered questions in your watched tags:

If instead you want to see all questions, you can create a new custom view with the + button and select 'My watched tags':

It's then available for you from the /questions page:

  • Oops, forgot that it wasn't live for everyone automatically. Thanks! – Glorfindel May 4 '19 at 9:42
  • IMO it's also 50/50 chance of ever being live, since SE will always have more urgent things to do. So at some point, it might get buried like the previous "new nav". That's why I don't bother to test it: 50% of total waste of my time. – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard May 5 '19 at 11:46
  • ... and we just got a new update about that topic :) – Glorfindel May 8 '19 at 14:57
  • Yeah, I submitted a request to get access to the beta 6 days ago and I still can't access the beta. :-/ – Eric McLachlan May 10 '19 at 9:47
