Add Everything & Displaying Number of Projects in Studios

We are experimenting with an algorithm to prevent ‘Add Everything’ studios from appearing on project pages and search results. Why are we doing this?

We want studios to be spaces for Scratchers to talk about and curate projects based on themes that interest them. For example, ‘Anime Academy and School’ is a place for Scratchers who love Anime to learn from one another, and discover new and interesting projects. The ‘Looking for a logo’ studio is a place where Scratchers can request personalized logos. There are countless other examples of studios being used in interesting and creative ways!

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.” We’re working on a way to prevent Add Everything studios from showing up on project pages and search results. And all studios will now only show the number of projects they contain up to 100, after which the studio just says 100+.

Remember - if someone on Scratch likes adding projects to AE studios, don’t hassle ‘em! And no need to report studios just for being AE’s, they’re not against the rules :]

That's actually a really nice compromise, sort of like the “100+ posts” thing to stop people from obsessing over the numbers.

I'm wondering how this algorithm will work - like it can't be based off of the title alone, because “Add Everything Cats!!!!!” is clearly not an “everything” studio. Maybe tags?

(edit: oh hey I'm first :3)
