Question about the possibility for this to happen on the website

So patterns must be approved to appear in searching, as far as I’m aware. But sometimes patterns just simply don’t get approved, mostly from low voting. So I was wondering if there could ever be a way to search in the pending patterns, ofc a warning before hand like this could hold stuff that breaks rules please report those would be needed. I feel like this would be great for people looking for more/certain types of patterns. It would also help patterns get voted even after being covered by other new patterns

Thank you so much to Crumpet for all the work they have put into this, it’s really helped people connect with this hobby. Please don’t overwork yourself if you see this, and don’t feel pressured to add this. It’s just an idea, and so sorry if this relates too much to my previous idea of a pattern team or if this has been asked before

It’s possible but I’d have to think about how to do it in a way that makes it clear they’re unapproved/separate. This is also assuming that the search server lets me add a new index, but I think it’s more likely to let me add a new one than to edit an existing one (like someone else requested), to be honest.

I have made good progress on the pattern team thing by the way, basically just testing and refining it now, but I haven’t been able to work on it for a couple of weeks due to some last-minute weekend appointments. I’ll be back on it soon.

You’re welcome and thanks for contributing to the site with all of your great ideas happy
