Is it my imagination or was there a tag following intensity feature on dev.to?

I seem to remember that there was a mechanism for my user to say per tag how interested they were on dev.to?

e.g. I could go to my settings and from there view my tags, with a decimal value next to each of them where 1 is 'normal interest', 2 was 'very high interest', and 0.5 was 'not interested'.

Is it still here? Where does it live? Has it moved? Did I imagine in in some dev.to centric fever dream?

This still exists - it's under Dashboard > Following πŸ˜„

Thank you! I've obviously been having a huge brain fart for 15 minutes looking all over the settings pages.

We really need to make this feature more intuitive and available for simple modification.

FWIW now I've found it, I was going to try to use it to see less stuff about JavaScript in my feed by following a tag and setting it to a number less than 1. Have I understood how that works right?

Follow it and set it to less than 0 if you want to see less... at some point we’ll get the anti-list settled once and for all.

Just throwing it out there - what if there was somewhere (maybe on the "tag" page) that showed a "See Less" and "See More" button - when clicked it would -1 or +1 the user's weight for that tag.

Over time, if they keep requesting to see less of something, they would continue to click the button and build up the negative weight over time?

Yes, it still does! For those looking for the link, you may access them through your dashboard.
