So after reading this question and this I was like yay! Now I don't need all that clutter on my Area51 profile page because I can un-follow Mathematics and GameDevelopment. But the problem is this: once you un-follow something the users rep goes down because that site does not have as many followers. Don't you think that if a person has been following since the definition stage and has not un-followed up to the beta stage the person that proposed the Q&A should not lose rep because of the un-follow?

Perhaps instead of having to unfollow a proposal, it should be possible to simply hide those sites that are in beta.

  • Sure that works too.

    This could work. So how about if we re-disabled following/unfollowing beta proposals, and then hide sites in beta from your "followed" list?
