Admin Plugin/Theme Ads/Notices Opt-in

Admin Dashboard can be overwhelmed with ads from various plugins or even themes.

To have a controlled experience, such Ads should be created through an API. Such API would then:

  • Provide a way to registers Ads
  • Provide a way to show Ads (hooks, on pages, based on user role; we don't want regular users to see ads that are aimed for web masters)
  • Have some of the admin places available only for admin notices and blocks ads from displaying them
  • Provide a way to opt-out from all Ads thus providing a better experience for clients

I am not sure if that was ever discussed, maybe I did a wrong keyword search on tickets. But this way we could have a controlled way to handle Ads/Notices that are intended to drive traffic to the product site.
