FORUM upgrade please!

Hello,

Would like to see features that:

1. auto displays the word count for instructor to see immediately

2. Highlight any repeated phrases already used (within thread)

3. Create a second grade option for those students who post a second response post within a Forum discussion. 

This sounds easy for a person who knows how to code:)

Thank you.

 @schulzi ‌, Canvas Studio‌ is where our members actively discuss ideas for enhancements to the Canvas platform. You'll find conversations about requested changes to the Discussion feature underway at:

https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/3454-word-count-for-speedgrader-grading 

https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/12682-word-count-minimum-and-maximum-in-discussions 

https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/1555-multiple-due-dates-checkpoints-for-discussions 

Also, many instructors choose to award points for initial posts and subsequent replies by using a grading rubric with multiple rows that award X points for an initial post and Y points for a subsequent post.

Please feel free to add your vote and use case comments to the above-linked ideas.
