Mark NOT INTERESTED for episodes
Currently episodes can be marked as PLAYED or UNPLAYED, played episodes get a mark and can be hidden.
I would like to mark some episodes as NOT INTERESTED (oe anything else similar). For a variety of reasons there are some episodes that I don't want to hear now or in a near future, others I stopped listening maybe because I found them boring. I could mark them as PLAYED to remove them from view, but maybe some day I could want to listen them and it would difficult to find. If I could have a different mark I would able to filter and find them later on
Chiming in to say that this is the one feature I'm desperately missing in this app! I'm coming from Castbox, and I like PA way better in basically every respect except for this very important (to me) one.
In Castbox, when you subscribe to a podcast, every time a new episode is added to the feed, it shows up with a badge on the episode in the feed, and it adds a badge on the podcast artwork in the list/grid of your podcast subscriptions. There's menu options to clear those badges, both individually (episode by episode) and in batches (clear all of a podcast's badges, clear all the badges from all the podcasts in a specific category), WITHOUT having to mark the episodes as played.
I used this feature heavily to keep track of my podcasts and I'm really missing it in PA, especially since every single podcast I subscribed to via OPML import now has the orange "unplayed" triangle on it with numbers for all of the episodes currently in the feed. It's making it pretty hard to actually find new-to-me episodes in my podcasts.
My dream is to be able to see when a podcast is updated, but then clear that updated status and get rid of the "unplayed" orange triangle on the podcast art without having to mark ALL the episodes as played, in case I want to download and play the new episode at another time, ignore the newest episode without marking everything in the feed as played when it's not, or just be able to more accurately keep track of which episodes I've actually listened to. This suggestion sounds pretty close to what I'm looking for, so I'm wholeheartedly cosigning it!
This! It would be a godsend for podcasts with like 500+ episodes on various topics.
I hate always having to read through hundreds of items, trying to distinguish between the 'want to ignore for now' vs the ones I'm currently interested in.
There isn't a viable method in the App to get around this.
But, both of these, I think are a priority.
So many times, I'll start a new podcast for a guest. Then I enjoy the episodes here-and-there, then I get into the podcast and want to listen to all episodes I haven't listened to yet - that's where the issue lies.
I'd love to see this implemented somehow!

I agree. I use the checkbox to remind me I was done with it. I also like that it changes to picture from the episode picture to the logo. That's a, fast way, of checking if it was, checked.
