Issue #1860 resolved

Show "Following" and "Began Following" once per repo per individual... or allow this to be turned off

This is usually all I ever see when I visit this site and it not only is annoying but it's discouraging (from wanting to come to this site and track activity on my favorite repos):

This is probably the worst it has ever been so I finally had enough and want to officially file a report.

Thank you.

FYI: I think the best solution would be to allow us to HIDE that stuff in the first place!! I don't want to see who began or stopped following anybody, or any repo.

    #1544 proposes to collapse follow-unfollow chains to one entry. These follow-unfollow chains seems like a bug for me.

    This ticket proposes to make displaying information about following/unfollowing optional (be able to hide this information entirely, collapse them to zero entry). This ticket is actually an unrelated feature request regardless of it's title.

    I also tend to unfollow popular repos because my newsfeed becomes polluted with useless information about people who follow and unfollow popular repositories (such as django-registration) and this is not because of #1544 but because the repo is popular. I still want to be notified if something is changed in source code of this repo or if somebody found a bug but follow-unfollow spam makes this unworthy.

    Yes, sorry. Ultimately it was a feature request, but I was unaware I could search the tracker before reporting the Issue. I simply clicked Report Bug in the footer (and it said the repo was Private and some such) so I was also unsure of whether it had ever been reported, and thus reported it as a Bug. But now I know better.

    I will change it to Enhancement then, to differentiate this from #1554

    Thanks
