# Should we have a 'closed' tag?

I would not mind tagging questions as , so that I can put in my 'not interesting list' and ignore them. It's kind of a hack to save those micro-seconds I spend on closed questions. What do you think?

What if a closed question already has 5 tags?

Tags are for categorizing questions, not to filter them by status. If we go forward with this, soon we'll want a , a and then a , and why not a ...

These things belong in the question's title, like blablabla [on hold].

Since the idea is to have these questions show as "not interesting", perhaps there could be a made, to make questions with one of these statuses show up faded in the questions list, like questions tagged with "ignored tags"?

• I'd agree, if I could filter on titles. – konijn Nov 12 '13 at 14:10
• @tomdemuyt how about simply having them show up as "not interesting", as if they were tagged with one of your "ignored tags"? (see edit) – Mathieu Guindon Nov 12 '13 at 14:27
• The difference is that there's no tag involved, rather just the question list made a little bit "smarter". – Mathieu Guindon Nov 12 '13 at 14:39
• That could work as well, and we would avoid the extra tagging. – konijn Nov 12 '13 at 14:48
• I'd actually upvote such a feature request. I did downvote this one though, because of the idea of introducing these tags. I think it should be posted on MSO though (wouldn't it be SE-wide?). – Mathieu Guindon Nov 12 '13 at 14:59
• Not to go meta on meta, but I think down-voting means that the style of the question is bad, not that you disagree with the content ;) – konijn Nov 12 '13 at 15:02
