Now, I have some rules, and I would appreciate if you followed them.
First, do not ship Scratchers without their consent. Even if you have permission, please refrain from extending the matter further than is necessary. The original forum, as I have already stated, was closed for this reason.
Second, discuss ships safely within the Scratch guidelines. Nothing over 13+; safe ships, please. I would prefer no ships where the age range is drastic (say a middle-aged adult and a teenager). Even if they are considered canon or semi-canon, please refrain from in-depth discussion of the above.
Fourth, do not force ships on other Scratchers. We all have different tastes and I don’t expect everyone to appreciate the same pairings. If you are asked to cease discussion of a certain shipping, with sufficient reason, please be gracious to other users and refrain, at least for the time being, from doing so.
Fifth, I realize that LGBT+ ships will be discussed - there isn’t a way to avoid that. However, if it makes you uncomfortable in any way, simply leave the thread instead of complaining publicly to us, as this particular topic welcomes pairings of any sexual orientation.
Sixth, don't argue or start fights. Our last two threads had a massive amount of fighting going on, and it makes everybody involved in the thread strained, irritated, and more ready to join in with their own opinions of what is right and wrong.
Seventh, please try to conform to the category that this topic fits in, namely What I’m Reading and Playing. Off-topic discussion was also a major issue in our previous threads, and played a large part in getting them both closed down.
Eighth, if things get out of hand, please contact a moderator from the Scratch Team immediately, before the issue escalates further.
Ninth, short fanfictions and fanart are encouraged, as long as they're appropriate for Scratch. If a fanfic has sensitive topics (self harm, drinking, etc.), please leave a warning beforehand, so that no one will have reason to complain about being offended.
Tenth and final rule - can’t stress this enough - please do not be rude to other users. Try to keep a level head, and don’t explode over slight issues; we should be able to enjoy ourselves here.

Here is @galacticchainsaw's studio for the topic.
I hope that these rules are not broken (if you test them slightly, it's totally fine. i'll give you a warning, but if you keep doing it, i'll have to do something. let's say, five strikes?), as I am not a person who likes confrontation. But I really, really want this one to survive, so if you could just.. try.. that'd be nice. Well, thanks for reading this, and have fun xx.
