Yes, it's absolutely fine to discuss it here.

When submitting another object you have the choice of adding a new object or 
superceding an existing one.

If your object does most or all of what the existing one does, plus other 
stuff that the existing one doesn't (e.g. options for adding text or 
pictures) then choose the 'Existing' option in the first pull-down on the 
submissions screen and use the name 'Scroll'.
Your object will then be displayed in the search screen. The person 
searching for objects will see a pull-down list of versions and will have 
the option of switching to an older version, but the most recent will be 
displayed by default.

If the existing object can be used in ways that your new object can't then 
you should pick a different name, so that both come up when someone does a 
search.

I didn't quite understand the last bit of that last sentence.
