I understand that this is a question regarding the entire StackExchange network, but recently this annoyance of mine has been considerably elevated because of Skyrim.
I like the idea of being able to ignore tags, and I guess it makes sense to be able to see them under certain circumstances, yet be marked as ignored. However, I would really like for there to be a way in which I can completely hide (or filter) tags from my ignore list.
As mentioned in my opening sentence, Skyrim is my current annoyance. I have it set to ignore but there have been times where sorting all new questions by post date have had only 1 or 2 in the list that were not associated with Skyrim.
I'm glad that people are interested in the game and want to ask questions. It's good for the site. However, it's making the site considerably annoying for those of us who don't care about the game.
Also, if you're thinking that it's not a big deal and that all of those Skyrim tags will dwindle soon, that may be true but that doesn't mean that there won't be another game in the future that is just as popular as Skyrim. At that time, the same problem will apply. For those of us who are not interested in the game.
I'm not trying to complain. I'm just asking if there is way to filter out these questions or if the system can be updated so that ignored tags are hidden and not just discolored?
