Allow hiding feeds from "Latest"
As per your suggestion in https://bazqux.uservoice.com/forums/190752-general/suggestions/40967908-ability-to-disable-feeds, it would be great to be able to hide particularly noisy feeds from the "Latest" auto-stream.
My workaround is to use a browser extension ("Redirector" which is open source) to automatically redirect me from the front page of BazQux to a smart stream: https://bazqux.com/ → https://bazqux.com/i/smartstream/All
Pros: works instantly and was easy to setup.
Cons: desktop-only (I'm not sure if there are similar solutions for mobile devices). Not a problem for me though as I anyway want to use BazQux only on desktop.
Indeed smart streams can be used for this, but I do also like the idea of being able to train Latest to be the home view that suits my needs instead of ignoring it in favor of a custom stream.
Yes, creating smart stream is a good option for this. I'm thinking to add option to customize Latest feeds but can't say ETA.

For what it's worth, I've just found out creating a smart stream of "*" and unticking the noisy feeds achieves the same results, and more importantly new feeds get added to that smart stream automatically. Meaning my only remaining annoyance is that I have to select that stream when opening BQ. So I'd be equally happy if I could just configure a smart stream as the default feed to open instead of latest.
