Most of the entries under "New" is CI failures which is probably not relevant to many users. Is there a way to prevent CI failures from showing up in that tab?
Go to the CI Notifications category page and mark the category as muted.
If I understand correctly, muting will stop all notifications even if someone mentions me.
I suspect that the vast majority of new users will not want to see CI failures like this. Perhaps we should investigate muting that category by default for new accounts, and then people who want to see them can unmute it.
I agree that the CI notifications are drowning out the other posts on the main page. I’ve made a change that will suppress them from the main page – although it makes it more difficult to find the category. I’m going to leave it that way and investigate other options, but at least this way the main page list of topics should be cleaner.
