I noticed today that some questions on the Parent site seem highlighted in blue, but I can't find an obvious differentiator between these and other questions. Was there a recent change to the system? What qualities causes a question to be highlighted?

Blue questions are those that have "interesting" tags. Faded questions are those that have "ignored" tags. Everything else renders normally.


I just noticed the reason, now. I had added some tags to the "Interesting" list in my profile, and it seems the blue questions are the ones that have these tags.

Don't mind me.
