Minor share button wording tweak!

I'm sure you've noticed how when you go to your unshared project's project page, it says “This project is not shared – so only you can see it. Click share to let everyone see it!”. I have only one problem with this; it's phrased in such a way that it seems like they're telling you to share your project. I don't know about you, but I can just see a new Scratcher who just started making a project: they look at the project page, and it says “Click share!”. They think “Cool!”, and click share. Thus, their project is shared prematurely, probably at a point where it can't do much.

Here's my idea: just change the phrasing on the share button so that it encourages finishing a project before sharing it. Change it to something more along the lines of “This project is not shared – so only you can see it. If it's finished, click share to let everyone see it!”. It would be very easy to change, and I think it might cut down on the amount of unfinished projects that are shared. Of course, there's nothing to stop you from sharing an unfinished project if you want to.

Thank you to my (82!) supporters:

Also, I know we're trying to break the whole “support” thing, but I'm not gonna change this now… (this is two years old)

I fell into the trap of doing that. My game could of had so many more views, but I shared it prematurely.

Sorry about that. Hopefully, with this, not many more Scratchers will do that! So…support?

It's such a minor change, and I actually like the current version better. Would the scenario you mentioned actually happen anyways?

No support.

Actually, I think it does. DJEnderman64's post is proof, and I doubt he's the only one.
