Why would it be good? Can you give an explanation?

Wahsp

To individual posts or topics?

Troyer_Kem

One question before I tell my thoughts: Why?

CatsUnited

Okay, so why?

ResExsention

Like everyone else, Why do we need something like this?

Truck11111

why do you need this

Troyer_Kem

Maybe people can see most loved topic and there can be a row about it?
If it's so, Semi-Support. I can't describe why.

Why do we need loves for projects? HUH? HUH?

HUHHHHHH?!?!?!?!!??

Same reason we need loves for the forums. Support.

The forums have a different purpose than projects though. Features that work when interacting with projects can't just be put into a forum without some modification. The OP hasn't said how adding loves will work - they just said “just do it”, so I don't know what loves on the forums would be like

Like the ones on the projects.

But then, the suggestions forums would look more like a ballot box where we support a suggestion without saying why, rather than a place where discussion and debate takes place. I see how loves on projects are useful, but in the forums, they wouldn't really have much effect. Loving or liking a forum post doesn't really “encourage” people to post more, after all, does it?

I don't see either which posts you would love/like… helpful posts and that's it? You can't really put a love on a question, put a love on a bug / glitch, put a love on a post asking for help for a script (or just in general), etc.

This isn't a duplicate, as the link I am about to give is a closed topic. However, it may be worth reading through: https://scratch.mit.edu/discuss/topic/229214/

So far as I know, this suggestion is not officially rejected (considering that the topic above was not closed by a Scratch Team member), but it is possible that it is not something we would consider. I can't speak for all of the Scratch Team, however; a seasoned moderator like @Paddle2See may wish to take a look at this topic and see whether this is rejected.

Now that I've though of that a bit more, it'd basically make the Scratch forums more like Reddit except there'd be no downvote button. I don't see an advantage to adding that feature on the Scratch forums - it'll probably cause the Suggestions forum to lose quite a bit of it's discussion

I clearly didn't explain this idea enough. I think that rather than useless ly writing “Support” in the comments of the suggestions forum, people can just love (and maybe dislike) the ones that they have opinions on, so the scratch team will be able to sort the best and most supported ideas from the rest more easily.

But if it were like that (in suggestions), people wouldn't be able to give reasons as to why they supported.

Again, this would pretty much turn into a reddit with no downvotes (as CatsUnited said).

Hmm, i don't see much point in that. Also, the idea is a bit confusing. Would it apply to topics individual posts?

ScratchCatHELLO

You mean like to get more supported scratch topics to the scratch team faster? Interesting. However, if you mean sorting them in the visible list of topics, then I don't really see the point in that.

So:

Using a “support” button to get more supported things to the scratch team but doesn't sort stuff : Partial Support

Using a “love” button to sort the topics on the suggestions page : No Support

But…

Using a “Good” button or star system on the requests forum (Should be an Option if added) : No-Partial Support
