The review system does not detect if the name has been taken. We truly wish we could remember the name of ~3MM items, but we can’t. :P

So, yes we can say it’s allowed but better to be unique.

All reviewers have to do is a quick site search for the name when they review the item. It would take a matter of seconds.

No, they do not need to do that. A much more efficient way would be to make a simple check when a user uploads the item, if the item name is exactly same, it should give an error and not let the user upload the item, and if the name is partially same, it can give some warning. I bet it wont take more than couple of minutes to write this code.

And why do that ? Name is a name, who cares if there are more than one item with the same name. Currently there are 3,721,124 Items on the marketplace, so imagine what the names of the future items will be if every item’s name must be unique. Example: Askdaibediuabeiufgiugra – Responsive Magazine Template :)

Did you read above, I said if its exact same name then it should not accept, otherwise should just give a warning so that user knows that the name already exists.

Yes that would be more efficient in the long run but there are much bigger problems and more important features that need the marketplace developers attention, especially considering it is something that is so easy for reviewers to moderate themselves.
