What happens in my Questions feed if a question appears that has tags in my Favourite Tags list and my Ignored tags list? Which one will supersede the other?

This Happens:

Fave + Ignore

I have ignored and as a favorite for the purposes of this example. As you can see, the question "What kind of Companies sponsor pro teams?" is faded out, but also has the blue hilight of a 'favorite' tagged question.

If you set the preference to hide ignored tags to on, than the question will be hidden, regardless of whether it also has a Favorite Tag associated with it.


Since the parser simply acts to highlight questions that are in your Favorites tag and removes questions in your Ignored tags list, I have to assume that logically the Ignored list will take precedence. Pretty easy to test, though?

    Ignored questions aren't actually removed by default, but if you enable that option, yes, that's what happens.
