New status for an episode: Skipped

Currently podcast episodes can have a status of "done", "in progress" or "new". I would like to have a new status - "skipped".

(I'm not very sure of the name of the status, it could be "skipped", "postponed", "deferred" or something like that.) An episode marked as "skipped" wouldn't show up in the blue "new" balloon number in the list of podcast feeds - though the list might have some "has at least one skipped episode" notification icon. However, in the podcast's episode list a "skipped" episode would display a different color than the grey "done" episodes.

The point behind this is that on some podcasts, the topic of the episode determines whether I'm interested in that specific episode or not. And generally from the list view I want to see if how many new, unlistened episodes there are in a podcast feed.

Of course, I could just mark the initially uninteresting ones as "done", as I do now. However even though I skipped an episode previously, I may very well be in the mood to listen to it some other time - the usual case being when there are no more new/unlistened episodes in the feed. (I could then download them and flag them as new). If I have them marked as "skipped" instead of "done", it would be very easy for me to see which ones I've actually listened to ("done"), and which ones I just skipped over.

A very nice addition would also be an option to only auto-remove "done" episodes from the podcast's episode list. That way, the "skipped" episodes would still always remain for later listening, no matter how old.

I think we might be able to

I think we might be able to that in a generic way that might meet other people needs too. We could introduce user defined 'tags' (like skipped) that could be associated with an episode. Then it may be possible to use those tags to prevent deleting or other such things.

Yup, makes sense.

I'd like this feature, too

They are many episodes I don't like to hear. It would be fine if I could assign a "skipped"-Tag in order to see after an update whether a new episode since last update was published.
It should be possible to flag a single episode as "skipped" or "Flag all new episodes skipped"
