Marking AE/IE studios as NFE/Restricting invites

Okay, this sounds very similar to a rejected suggestion, but it's NOT saying that AE/IE studios should be banned. (For those of you wondering, please DO NOT ask, AE = Add Everything, IE = Invite Everyone, they're studios with no particular theme and they were made to just add projects and/or invite people)
In fact, it's only asking to put an NFE on them or just make less of them visible on the search bar/etc., because they can be very distracting to others who are actually looking for studios with a particular theme.
Another suggestion is a filter that prevents a user from being invited to studios like this. I get invited to these pretty often, even though I ask not to.

A few more reasons from here to support:

Some Scratchers really like adding projects to add everything studios – to each their own! But we want to make sure that Add Everything studios don’t crowd out the studios built around themes that are more specific than “everything.”
AE studios could also be deprioritised or hidden on the studios sidebar on project pages but still be listed when one clicks “view all.”

Huh? We already mark AE/IE studio as NFE.

Unless I am searching specifically for add everything studios, shouldn't it not come up then?



Or is it that people haven't reported them to be NFE?

There is a suggestion that can let you turn certain types of messages off, but that is suggesting that it is for the whole category of studio invites or none. Are you suggesting that it would only be to filter out names containing, “…” and “…” and…?

Also, I think that they may mark the individual studios NFE, not the search term, or it just doesn't work.

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.

They probably haven't reported them yet. We reply on reports from users in order to mark an AE/IE studio as NFE.

We can't auto-NFE studios that have the words “Add Everything” or “Invite Everyone” because there's a pretty good chance of blocking legit studios with that name (case in point, the screenshot you shared had a studio in search “Add Everything Undertale”, which does not fall under the AE/IE studio genre because it is specific to “Undertale” projects).

By the way, this has been duly cited in the Scratch Wiki article on studios. I just love references

I get that we can't really NFE ALL types of studios with the “add everything/invite everyone” in the title because as @cheddargirl said, there's such a thing as studios that have “add everything/all” in the title and have a legit theme to it, like “add all animations” or “add everything (insert a fandom here)” and aren't just “ADD ALL OF YOUR PROJECTS”
