Add an "I don't support" option to projects, which then filters them out by default
This would make it realistic for regular users to view all new projects. They look at every project once, and give it a thumbs up or down, then next time they visit they can see only the new projects, without their view being cluttered up with projects they already supported or decided they wouldn't.

I would like to have an option of "my feed", which I can make my own and sort it as I want to see projects.
An option to select projects I don't want to show in my feed anymore. Something as below:
Menu Choice: Modify my feed
When clicked on it: Select projects
When selected: Hide from my Feed.
Will be nice to have the following options in my feed:
Hide from my feed (means definitely don't want to see this project anymore in my feed)
Review later (means don't have time right now, to look in details, but interested to learn more, before I decide on my support)
Save (means I want to remember this project, for my inspiration, for admiring the creator, for specific element use to learn the technic, I don't want to lose it in tones of projects)
I am Supporting (at the moment under profile, but could be shown under my feed as well)
Show all (means I want to have an option to view default feed)
Absolutely. No way it's public, nor addressed to the project designer.
It would just be a help to organize your own votes, more useful in my opinion than the "Saved" tab, which to this day is globally a duplicate of "Supporting".
To correct my previous comment "2000 results" is more accurate than "26492 results" (now that we can exclude Expired Ideas and more from the selection).

My personal opinion only, if you don't support a project, you just don't support it. Pretty simple. No need to make people feel worse if their project isn't doing so well.
Perhaps a little radical and definitive (even projects that are a priori mediocre are entitled to a second chance, right? XD), but interesting idea for those like me who, for the sake of fairness, would like to judge and eventually support as many projects as possible (absolutely discouraging with the "26492 results" to date)!
3 votes anyway for raising the issue.
Thanks for mostly fixing the like button but it’s still a little bit cut of
Could you make it so that when you support an idea and the suggested projects pop up, it will only show you protects you haven’t yet supported.
And also could you make some sort of way to identify whilst in the discovery page what projects you have and haven’t yet supported
And could you make the like button not werd
