So, I came across this, and I think it might be bugged or should work the other way around.

Imagine I have in my Ignored tags , but I have in my Favorite tags . If a question has both tags it is not being shown in my "Interesting Questions" tab.

I also have, "hide ignored tag" unchecked in my prefs.

Is this by design? Shouldn't Favorite tags have precedence over Ignored ones with that unchecked (as this answer suggests)?

  • If I'm ignoring a tag, I don't want to see any questions about that tag regardless. I like the opposite precedence (favorite > ignored). – Troyen Jul 14 '11 at 0:22
  • That is fine, what is the usefulness of that checkbox in the prefs then? – Vinicius Kamakura Jul 14 '11 at 0:31
  • The checkbox you are referring to would hide any question using one or more of the tags you are set as ignored tags; when you have any ignored tags, but that checkbox is not selected, then the questions using those tags would be shown with a "ghost" effect. – kiamlaluno Jul 14 '11 at 0:43
  • @kiamlaluno this is not happening with me on the interesting page – Vinicius Kamakura Jul 14 '11 at 0:44
  • I should have made that clear: I am referring to the front page and the questions listed under "questions." I don't see any "interesting questions" tab and I cannot comment for that page. – kiamlaluno Jul 14 '11 at 13:38
  • @kiamlaluno click the SO logo, see if interesting opens up for you – Vinicius Kamakura Jul 14 '11 at 13:39
