Forgive me if this has already been discussed. On the main page, which lists the top 15 highest/lowest prices, is there any way to delete particular stations or brands from that list? Lately I've noticed that the Lowest Price board is dominated by Sam's Club and Costco, neither of which I belong to. It would be nice if I could remove them so I could see the lowest prices of other stations.

An alternate way of doing this would be to add "Next 15" and "Previous 15" buttons to scroll through the list.

Yeah add it to the endless unreadable list. It keeps you busy!

Correct. That's why I used the phrase "new topic on an existing subject."

The difficulty with saying certain stations should be removed (in this case) because "neither of which I belong to...", is you have others that could say (as in my case), "the traditionally lower priced stations aren't near me; they're on the other side of Maryland" (or wherever). You're essentially asking that members can delete (or hide) any and/or all stations if they desire.

If you're only concerned about prices at certain brands or stations (I realize the question is asking about deletion), consider using the Favorite Stations List to list those brands and stations you care about.

That said, a "Next 15" or "Previous 15" is a good idea. An alternative might be to be able to toggle between the highest priced list and the lowest priced list, thus allowing for many more stations to be identified on either list.

I think maxstar is on the right track.

You can build custom searches and save them by area or by stations. I have a bunch by area saved.

TxJeans it sounds bridgejoe is looking for a way to filter out particular stations from the results displayed. In this case Costco and Sam's.

Excluding certain stations is possible by using the search options, but bridgejoe is looking for those results without the need to use a filter.

Another possibility would be to add flags to MSL:
1- Club
2- Dual priced
etc.
And then allow to exclude certain flags from showing.
