I was wondering to which extend it’d be possible to train a highlighted word/phrase to affect a wider spectrum then just one specific site. If it’d be for example possible, after I have selected a specific word from a stories title to be thumbed up, to then choose whether I want that word to apply to “Everything” or to all the sites of a specific folder.
Case in point: I have a folder for science news from a couple of big sites. They throw all type of news at you, but I mostly don’t want to miss a certain type, say news about archaeology or linguistics. Same scenario in my general news folder. I have some major news websites added, which I will generally skim through if and when I have time. However I don’t want to miss their news on, say, my country of origin. Atm I have to train every one of the sites in that news folder individually to accept specific words, and that only if I come across the word in a title. The process is daunting, especially when first adding a site, and especially for those “general interest” massive websites. I am wary of adding all the news sites I want until I have sufficiently trained the ones I have, cause I’ll bury myself in yellow if I do. If I could however apply a specific keyword I just thumbed up to the whole folder, that’d save me a lot of trouble.
Training will become easier if you later implement the already suggested idea of adding a training option straight into the site addition process, but still, there are many occasions when being able to widen the scope of a specific thumb up or down would really help.
Is this even feasible? I seem to remember you giving reasoning against adding generalised keywords, but what I am suggesting seems (to me) closer to the way Newsblur already functions. Is it?
