If a user is unfollowed, remove their submissions from "What's New" feed.

Kaif 4 years ago updated by Sam 4 years ago 2

If I follow X user and they have submitted 100 pieces of art that are in my "What's New" feed, remove those 100 pieces automatically if I choose to unfollow X user instead of forcing me to manually close every window with their art in it in the "What's New" feed. I like this feed and find it useful, but this feature would be handy, especially since the importer is making it so a lot of artists are submitting hundreds of pieces all at once right now.

This is a technically difficult problem - though we do have some changes in the works that should make it a little less necessary.


For example, the import tool is no longer going to spam 'what's new' when someone you follow imports a bunch of stuff - which should help clear this up a lot. In addition, we're looking to make it optional for users to 'notify' their followers when they publish something - again, which should help with spam.


Closing for now - as hopefully the import changes will fix this for the most part!

What's the difficult part? Can you elaborate?


Twitter has similar functionality, such that if you unfollow a user, their historic tweets no longer appear in your timeline. While I'm not saying FN has to have the same functionality its a very useful feature as there are times where artists still do post a lot of work that you'd not want to see.


It doesn't just have to do with import tool spam, it could be that your tastes changed, or you followed an artist because of just one picture but they ended up not producing the kind of content you expected.
