Bringing Back Top Viewed and the Comment List

Remember the What The Community is Viewing section on the front page? I can't seem to figure out why it was removed, but I'm sure I and lots of others would like to see it brought back. It was a good way to have scratchers' projects get noticed, especially ones that rarely get their projects noticed at all. Besides, lots of Scratchers nowadays only bother to view a project and not love-it or favorite the project, so that makes the Top Loved section a little more pointless, and just shows for the need of bringing back Top Viewed. Another idea is to bring back the comment list. By that, I mean the list of projects that one scratcher has commented on. Sometimes I go to a project and I only comment and forget to love-it or favorite it, so i can't watch it again, if I forget the project name. I used to be able to find it when I commented on a project, by viewing my comment list. Now that that's gone, it's harder to find projects you want to watch again, and scratchers you forgot the name of. I wanted to find my old Scratch class instructor but I forgot his username. I'd like this, in fact both these things to return to Scratch, because I think it would help me and the community a lot more.

Veteran Scratcher, decent animator, rookie programmer. Seriously, I suck at programming sometimes. Surprised how little I've used the forums in the 10 years I've been here.

The viewing I do not support, because someone could view their projects a ton of times just to get on the what the community is viewing.
Comment list I sem-support, because can't you just use the back arrow to go back a page or two

You can't do that with views afaik anyways…

And also I think he is talking about something a bit more permanent. The back arrow would only work for your current session.


Anyways I think having top viewed would be a little overkill since we already have top loved/remixed. It would croud up the FP a little. I'd support just having one row with “What the Community is _____” and then have a drop down for loving, remixing, viewing, commenting(?), favoriting(?)

Also, I've always disliked how commenting works. I think it would make the community a lot better if commenting could be seen in activity feeds.

Support. The reason why it was removed is because users could easily get projects to the front page by simply clicking on the green flag many times or refreshing the project page (i think). One solution is for the project to detect what users have already viewed this. That way, the amount of viewers won't increase if the same user keeps viewing the project.

I support this, though for only the comment list. As OmnipotentPotato
said, it would crowd up the front page. I think we are good with the top loved/remixed for now.

That doesn't happen for me. Views don't change on account of me visiting my own projects.

You need to click the flag. It'll count the views as long as you've clicked the flag and the screen has refreshed at one point.

opening the project page was just a guess. Clicking the Green Flag is a fact,

No support on the viewing part. Because the viewing part can be able to sometimes show inappropriate projects that are popular.

What the Community is Viewing got removed for the reason stated in the linked wiki article.

Fun_Cupcake_i81: Well then if you didn't want it back maybe you need to time travel to last year and fix that

Oh wait if you could time travel I think we all know exactly when you would go-
user1: That picture is from 2.0. Now he’s at my house and is my pet.
user2: But this is medians we're talking about, so “from 2.0” can mean the same thing as “from five seconds ago”.

The trending page can also be used to show inappropriate projects, and so can the top loved/remixed. I dont get what’s special about a top viewed page that would make it be able to show inappropriate projects.

Not “replaced,” per se — I believe Top Loved and Top Viewed both existed at the same time in the early days of Scratch.
