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.
(Idea from blog post comment by HonorableSqueamishJay, copied here so it can gather votes)
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.
