I enjoy using this site from time to time, but I've got a few very popular tags ignore-listed because I usually don't want to read or answer questions about them. (This isn't a value judgement about the game or anything — it's just pointless to look at the majority of D&D5 questions if you're not playing D&D5 and don't have the books on hand to research answers, due to the highly detail-oriented and game-specific nature of questions like "How does this spell work?" or "How can I play this kind of character effectively?")
But all the ignore list does is make the text kinda greyish in the main page "Top Questions" view, while most of the content I see is still ignore-listed items. (I don't know exactly how it changed or when, but I remember the grey-out effect being more pronounced in the past as well?)
If I try to set up a custom filter such as "not dnd-5e," I get a popup that says:
Tag queries cannot be exclusively negative.
What should I do if I actually want to ignore the tag categories on my ignore list, so I can focus on less popular game questions?
