Comment (by Bowromir):

 Good point Mathieu.. that's definitely an issue but to be honest I think
 there's better ways to solve that.. For instance only applying the "reset"
 after an update is posted and not when the update box is clicked. Then
 when an user refresh the page it goes back to how he/she has set it. I
 just don't think it's a good idea to hijack/overwrite something that can
 be set by the user. But I'd love to hear more opinions on this!

 This leads me to another point which is very much related. I think we
 could do a better job at showing which filters are currently active. I've
 have had quite a few instances where clients/users got confused because
 they were not aware of the stream being filtered (because of the
 dropdown). Whilst this is a different issue I think they are related.

 What I'd like to propose is showing an message when a filter is activated
 and display that before the stream starts:

 "You are viewing '''Group Memberships''' activity. Click here to see all

 This will make it a lot clearer for users when they have a filter or tab
 activated. See the attached screenshot how Facebook is doing it.

 I'm going to try and implement this myself on CFCommunity and report back
 when I have something.
