A Way to Reduce Rejected Suggestions!

Often there are a lot of rejected suggestions that new posts are being made about because the post creator didn't read the sticky.

Suggestion: Add a list of the rejected suggestions to a filter, and when you're typing the title in a new post, if what the user is typing is similar to the title of a rejected suggestion, have a popup saying “Is (name of suggestion) what you are suggesting? If so, this suggestion is rejected, see here for more details” so there will be fewer threads about suggestions that are already rejected.

The popup will not prevent the user from making the topic (if the filter is wrong nothing will happen). It's just a reminder just in case it is a rejected suggestion.

Hmm. That does seem like a good idea!

Support, although it is not really a major issue.

Currently, I have 860 posts.
(Also, suggest things I should put on here. The white space is sad.)There's nothing else here. Just a white space. ↓

And yes it would be hard to add, because ‘Make a R13 Scratch’ and ‘Make a restricted version’ are different enough.

Lets ban Minimods together.

I don't think it would be unmanageable for the ST though.

Then there would be the problem of having a suggestion with a title similar to a rejected suggestion, and not being able to make the topic because of that.

A loophole with this would be if you didn't give a descriptive title, and just wrote “suggestion” as some people do.

It doesn't stop you from making the topic, it is only a reminder so if the filter picks up a non rejected suggestion it won't do anything.

Yes, I agree with a pop-up/notification, but not complete prevention.

But getting the filter to reliably identify rejected suggestions from non-rejected suggestions could be a problem.

I think that this is a good idea, just the coding would be a big problem. Maybe it would look for keywords with close enough spelling so that it would detect it even with spelling mistakes.

I used to be active on the forums, but I have mostly moved past Scratch. I still do check my Scratch messages, so if you'd like to talk to me, just pop a comment on my profile. My main project on Scratch was Cookie Clicker, but I've also recently made a project called Snake Snake, a game based off of Snake, but there are two snakes, and you can play either singleplayer or multiplayer.

It wouldn't be a problem if the filter incorrectly identified a non-rejected suggestion as a rejected suggestion. It would just be a popup and nothing would happen if the user ignored it.

A filter list might work, but it could be more effective if it showed a list of suggestions with similar titles – that way it might also cut down on duplicates. Each title would be the same color as it is in the Suggestions index. Closed topics would be grey, so you'd be able to pretty quickly see if a suggestion you're making is rejected.

(You could expand this idea and apply it to all forums. It would be useful in Help with Scripts and Questions about Scratch since it might find you the answer quickly; and in other forums (such as Making and Creating/Reading and Playing, and Advanced Topics) to avoid accidental duplicates. You might also consider including the number of replies and views on the topic, as well. If there's two threads with the exact same purpose, you'd pick the thread with more posts, right?)
