Change how reports are handled

There are a couple of ideas here but they're all related so I've put them in the same topic.

—————————

Be able to see projects after you've reported them

Currently if you report a project, you see this message:


The project is replaced by a grey Scratch cat, and the rest of the page is blank. This is probably meant to stop people accidentally seeing inappropriate content that they reported, but it also stops you from seeing if anything has been done about it. Besides, not all reports are about inappropriate content, most of the ones I make are about stolen projects. To actually see the project, you have to log out first.

There are two ways to fix this. The first is to just get rid of the message and take you straight to the project. The second is to have a click-through warning, that way if you don't want to see the project again you will know about it and be able to go away from it. Here's how the warning could look:


The old message would still show as a popup when you first report the project, but it would go away when you refresh the page.

Bumping reports

While I was looking for copies of my projects recently, I found some projects that I reported months ago (or maybe even years, I can't remember) that were still up and had the “we've received your report” message on them. These reports will probably never be seen now since they're at the bottom of a huge pile. I suggest being able to re-report a project if the report hasn't been answered within a time limit. I don't know how fast the ST deals with reports, but 1 month seems about right for the time limit here.

I definitely support the first one, although is there an important reason why you need to re-view a copied project?

Second suggestion, semi support. Most of the time when I've reported remixes with no changes it gets removed within a day.

Check out Life Raft Survival, my new advanced sandbox survival game with crafting, building, transportation, weather events, tropical storms, and more!

In the game you're stranded at sea after a mysterious crash and must survive in an unforgiving tropical island environment collecting resources and crafting, in an attempt to finally be rescued.

To see if anything's been done about it. Sometimes they change the project after you report it.

I just use contact us if a dupli isn't removed. Either that or I report the user. both draw their attention to the user, and reports ON the user, which will draw them to the dupli project and get them to remove it.

Support for the click through. I've never had to report a project, but this is like replying to comments after a report. And also because there is such a inconvience of logging out which is an easy workaround.

Semi-support for the first part, I can kind-of understand your reasons but I don't really think it's that necessary: so, you can see if they've changed it- now what?
No support for the last one, it would get overused to the point where it makes the problem worse.

I think the first one would be a cool idea, for example if you report the project for reason “no credits given”, but no support for the other one. That can be really annoying since the Scratch Team reviews all reports.

I guess you're right that it could be annoying, but the reason I suggested it is because the ST doesn't review all reports. That's how they can end up being unreviewed months after you report them.

The ST tries to review all reports, you mean.

Some will sometimes fall through the cracks.

Just get rid of the report button on them. Back when somebody stole my stuff, I reported them but had to log out to see if they fixed it.

This feels like a rock and a hard place to me. On one hand, people may not want to bump into a project they reported. On the other hand, just like miniepicness said, you have to log out to see if the Scratch Team took it down.

Maybe you should be able to see users you reported but not projects you reported?

Hey, I remembered to post something!

It already works like this. And who wouldn't want to see a project they reported? You can check if the people removed the stolen/bad stuff.

Support for obvious reasons. There is no reason to block people from viewing projects they reported.

Number 1000: the first time you see this copy and paste it on top of your sig in the scratch forums and decrease the number by 1, and add your username to the end of the number, but only if there wasn't a username already there! Comment on the user who you found this from's profile saying that you continued the experiment. Social experiment started by dude341, based on “generation social experiment” trend.

I agree, that doesn't make sense.

Surely the point of reporting a project is because it's bad and you don't want to see it?

no. It is because you do not want it to be on the website.
