[status-completed] posts bury everything else

+3

At the time of writing, there is a big chunk of (around 15) [status-completed] and [status-declined] posts in the Q&A category feed, burying the open posts.

Since open posts are much more important than completed ones, I think that this situation should be avoided. I suggest either:

  1. Add an option to hide [status-completed] or other related tags from the category feed.
  2. Don't bump posts when adding the [status-completed] or related tags to them.

I would like to offer a third alternative.

Don't make post-bumping edits in bulk.

I don't know the process that led up to those posts being retagged the way they were just now, but I strongly suspect that they didn't all need to be retagged at once.

So, then, the obvious option would be to retag as soon as possible when the correct tag becomes known, whether that's status-completed, status-declined, or unicorn-failure. (Okay, maybe not that last one, even though we did have a genuine unicorn failure some time ago.)

Spreading the edits out over a longer period of time means that other posts don't get buried by ones that are bumped simply because of a moderator tag edit.
