The message area at the top of the dashboard and all other pages is routinely abused by plugin and theme vendors who think it is their god given right to continually push unimportant messages into this area. Sometimes the banners are big. All of this marketing material gets in the way of administering the system. Some days half my screen is taken up with these message and sometimes they refuse to be dismissed or only disappear until you go to another page in the backend.
If the vendor wants to email me, that’s fine and I don’t need the interference with my workflow.
These unimportant messages appear in the same space as genuine error messages but we have become so inured to dismissing all the junk that sometimes we miss or delete an important one.
Please can you do something to give us back control of the message area so that we can not have our workflow constantly interrupted and be able to see important messages?
The ability to mute a message or vendor perhaps? Or sin bin them for say seven days and if they pick up successive sin binnings, to red card them?
Or anything else that will let us get on with what WE consider important rather than what a marketing person decides.
