Provide “Keep Interesting Tags” option when “Hide Ignored Tags” enabled

I'll dive straight into an example. I have the tag "Java" hidden, I'm not interested in Java programming... in general. However, I do have "Android" marked as a tag I'm interested in. What currently happens is any question that is tagged as "Android" & "Java", I don't get to see. So I've had to remove "Java" from the list of tags I'm not interested in (which results in lots of questions I don't care about, with some that I do care about).

My proposal is to not hide any questions that have a tag I'm interested in - that should always be the most powerful criteria.

Tags: If "A" in My Tags, and "B" in Ignore, and a post has "A" and "B", I'd like to see it

Provide "Keep Interesting Tags" option when "Hide Ignored Tags" enabled

  • How about going to the prefs tab in your profile and deselecting "Hide Ignored Tags"?

  • meta.stackexchange.com/questions/26181/… and meta.stackexchange.com/questions/36954/… both cover proposals for this functionality. I thought there was also one that specified it should be default to interesting > ignored, but I am unable to find that one right now.

  • @Ami, how would that solve my problem? I would still end up with noise from tags I'm not interested in. @Grace, thanks for the links. That's exactly what I'm talking about. Commented Aug 4, 2010 at 14:57
  • Another link (as a solution for you rather than as a duplicate), if you're up to using GreaseMonkey, might be this one.

You could try to modify Alconja's greasemonkey script accordingly.
