Or am I an idiot? The highlighted questions were the only thing I had trouble immediately figuring out on the SF GUI. For ages I thought they were questions I had viewed, then no, maybe answered? No... Finally I took the time to work it out.

Maybe also highlight the tags that are causing the question to be highlighted, with a different colored border for example?

Highlighted Question

Come from this:

Favorite Tags

  • If you're saying put giant crudely-drawn red circles on the page, then yes that would work, but probably won't get approved. If you're saying that I should have been able to figure it out because of the favorite tags list at the right, I saw that, and it was not intuitive for me.

  • What would have made it intuitive is if the tags in the list of Favorite Tags had a slightly different style, and that same style was used for the favorite tag(s) in the question.

  • I should also add that the source of the highlighted questions for me is Frequented Tags. As opposed to Favorite Tags, they are not created by any specific action I performed.

  • If you define Favorite tags then Frequented Tags is replaced. But yea, that's it.
