I am building my list of Interesting Tags. borderlands is one of them. I also play only PC games and therefore I added pc too.

Instead I put xbox-360, xbox, ps3 and wii in the Ignored Tags.

Now, this question appear to me in the list of questions faded: In Borderlands, what if my character is past level 50 and then I play without the DLC installed?

It contains borderlands and xbox-360. Now suppose that this question is platform-independent. What should I do to avoid fading of this interesting, for me, question? Should I remove xbox-360 from the my list of Ignored Tags. Or should I add pc to the tags of the question?

  • It isn't faded. It's blue and faded. – badp Sep 15 '10 at 9:29

"Ignored" status supercedes "interesting". So as long as any one tag on a question is ignored, it does not matter how many interesting tags are on it. It will be faded.

This does pose something of a problem to this site specifically, for people who use it for consoles, due to the number of cross-console games that might hit both lists. Unfortunately, though, having interesting tags override ignored has been ruled against as [status-bydesign] here.

  • It'd be nice if we could select which behavior we get in the preferences page, just like we can choose to totally hide the ignored questions at the moment. – Donal Fellows Jul 10 '10 at 20:03
  • Not really. So long as any one tag on a question is interesting, it does not matter how many ignored tags are on it. It will have a blue background. – badp Sep 15 '10 at 9:29
  • @badp I can replicate this on Stack Overflow, but mysteriously not here (I can't even get plain interesting to highlight, for some reason). This isn't the behavior that I have seen in the past, though, so it is possible that the behavior has changed. – Grace Note Sep 15 '10 at 16:01

It will appear both blue and faded, but if it's a platform-independent question, then remove the tag, since console tags are only to be used for questions about platform-specific version differences or about the console itself anyway.


Why not apply your own style sheet to fix this, like the following for Firefox?

@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);

@-moz-document domain("gaming.stackexchange.com") {
    div.tagged-ignored.tagged-interesting {
        opacity: 1 !important;
