Can I avoid re-tagging polluting the activity stream?

As I go through the process of re-tagging my blogs that don't have a primary tag, they are all appearing in my activity stream, and presumably in the stream of everyone following me. I guess that's a good thing from the point of view of getting eyes on my old content, but when everyone goes through this process it is going to make the activity stream very noisy, and probably close to useless for a while. Is there a way to stop these minor changes appearing the the activity stream? There used to be a "this is a minor update" checkbox in the old SCN that did this, didn't there? Is there an equivalent now?

    Hello Steve,

    I am afraid this ability is only available in our QA platform currently. I do not think this feature is available in blogs.

    I am investigating further and will get back to you when I have some more information. And I am afraid if a community member is following you, any such updates will show up in their Activity Stream like you mentioned until we can implement such a feature. Once the channel for new feedback is open tomorrow, I will be happy to follow up on this.

    Thank you so much for raising this concern.

    • Hello Steve,

      I agree with you that we would not want the Activity Stream to get inundated with similar activities. There was an idea submitted recently here on Idea Place regarding Activity Streams:

      I personally think this new feature would help solve this issue. Maybe not specifically for re-tag activities, but for more common activities such as liked, up-voted, (maybe answered, and commented)? Aggregating these activities together and showing one story in the Activity Stream may help clean up the stream substantially.

      As always, your thoughts are welcome.
