Over the years I have marked many post as Favorites. The list has become long enough that it's unwieldy and less than helpful. Many of the questions are no longer topical- I've already learned from them! I want to winnow down the list.
But the amount of Favorite marks given to a question is one of the metrics we use to show how awesome it is. We give out badges :) So I don't (necessarily) want to penalize questions just because I'm done with them.
What is the preferred way to handle this? Should I:
- Feel free to keep my Favorites list tight and useful, or
- Let the list grow, as to not remove Favorite marks from good questions?
