I always go to mathoverflow.net rather than mathoverflow.net/questions, because the latter only shows 50 results per page including results in tabs you've hidden (so I only see about 4 per page). Normally the former option displays loads of questions ( always a superset of those in the question tab). However, it seems the former is no longer displaying questions at all. Have others noticed this too? Is this by design?

    $\begingroup$ I just tried replicating the bug here on MO by adding a few ignored tags (that I knew had questions on the active page) and enabling "hide ignored tags", but it worked as intended here. It may only happen if you have enough ignored tags. $\endgroup$ – Tobias Kildetoft Nov 5 '13 at 18:41

    $\begingroup$ I'd recommend to retag this as bug, that way the SE developers will see it. $\endgroup$ – Mad Scientist Nov 5 '13 at 19:34

This was unexpected fallout from a change that was intended to limit the impact of requests with an excessively large list of tag criteria. The issue related to a very large number of ignored tags (331) with the "hide ignored tags" preference enabled. I have revised the limits while I investigate further. Sorry for any disruption.
