Dear Logos.com Developers,

Logos has so many titles now that I often get thousands of results. Please make it easier for me to find and to buy titles of interest.

I propose a “Not Interested” list.

Anything on the “Not Interested” would not show in queries on Logos.com. If I go to Sale > On Sale Today, anything on my “Not Interested” list would be hidden from view (unless I click a link to “Include titles on ‘Not Interested’ list”). Now I can focus on things I see frequently but don’t care to buy ever.

If I’m Catholic, I can add various Protestant titles to my “Not Interested” list. If I’m Protestant, I can add various Catholic titles to my “Not Interested” list. If I’m not interested in classics, fiction, or various other new directions the company takes, I can add those to my “Not Interested“ list.

The Not Interested list would be managed similar to a Wish List. In any search results that currently have “Add to Wish List” would also have “Add to Not Interested“ and be hidden from future search resuls. If the title is part of a series that I don’t want, when I add that title to the “Not Interested“ list then Logos.com should ask if I want to add the entire series to “Not Interested”—that would be great!

I should be able to review the “Not Interested“ list and to remove items from it, just like a wish list. But unlike a wish list, the “Not Interested” list doesn’t have any priority—all “Not Interested” items are hidden from search results by default. Now I don’t have to see the same uninteresting titles or uninteresting series over and over without ever finding something that I might want to BUY!

Thanks so much!

Scott, have you thought this through for your responsibilities? If I remember right, FL has about 40K titles. Might be less, but anyway ‘ a lot ‘.’

How are you going to manage your list? And the 40K grows each month ... you’ll be exhausted adding not-wanteds.

Let’s say instead you could have a ‘not these’ rules (from the carot selector, eg no Pentecostals).

The issue there is that when Logos can’t figure out a book, it ‘must’ be evangelical (and an issue for Catholics).

Logos might ruin your life? (joking)

I agree that this would be helpful, The problem wouldn't be that the not-interested list would have to be exhaustive, but rather that I could stop seeing the same item that I'm not interested in. It would save time and probably also be used by Logos to better target items to me.
