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:

  1. Feel free to keep my Favorites list tight and useful, or
  2. Let the list grow, as to not remove Favorite marks from good questions?

You should definitely remove them from your favorites. Don't game the system. Presumably a functioning list is more useful to you than a virtual badge on someone's profile page.
