Hello! I didn't know about this.
Could somebody explain it to me?
How does it work?
Basically, we're talking about the use of (virtual) currencies ie yes you can do this no you can't do that. If you don't know what it is, you probably don't need to know unless you use shops. If you don't know what they are, use the welcoming topics.

Good point. I don't know

I don't know how to describe what I think about these… “cute” is a word that comes to mind.

Unless it gets to a bad point, attacking people for using stuff you put on a public website isn't ok. Especially against people who are outside of whatever little “currency community” you are a part of… They likely didn't even know about that “currency,” and even then their actions shouldn't be governed by something they aren't a part of. That would be like if country A tried to arrest a citizen of country B who isn't even in country A, or ever has been, just because they broke a law of country A that isn't in country B.
A good way of explaining!

I think that point systems should be removed, and that people should be more basic. All the banners are killing cubeupload etc, and really, downgrading to art trades wouldn't hurt anyone.

I am thinking about adding a feature in one of my projects once the Upload-as-a-New-Project bug gets fixed. So my plan is that on Fridays only, the shop menu of that project will say “Everything 50% Off!” The only currency that is involved are the in-game currency, which are stars. For example, something costs 100 stars, but since it is a Friday, it only costs half the amount. Does anyone know if this would be an ok thing to have? I'm pretty sure that it is, but I just want to be safe.

Well, it's within a project, so I think so. Like getting upgrades in a clicker game- that's allowed, so this should be too.

Banners killing Cubeupload isn't much of a reason to restrain freedom. And also, the biggest currency systems are on studios, not the forums, so there's no need for Cubeupload for the banners to be uploaded to. Downgrading to art trades won't hurt anyone, but upgrading to a currency system won't hurt anyone either (unless someone misuses the currency system, in that case it's something completely different).

Hi!

We wanted to make a post today to help provide some guidelines and clarify our policies around the use of points or virtual currencies to buy and sell sprites, art, or other things on Scratch. It’s great that people are using these to make new and creative projects for Scratch, but there are a few trends we see happening that could cause problems.

Some specific things we want to address are:
  1. Participation in these point systems must be completely optional. You can create a studio with rules that you would like people to follow, but all of Scratch’s Community Guidelines still apply. For example, all projects on Scratch are remixable. If someone doesn’t give you ‘points’ for something, they can still remix, re-color, and share parts of those projects on Scratch as long as they follow the Community Guidelines.
  2. It is not okay to say mean things, demand that Scratchers ‘pay’ if they have remixed or used something from your projects, or encourage others to post mean comments to someone because they didn’t participate in the point system.
  3. Many of the projects being created require people to agree to some set of rules they must follow. Your project can include a list of rules, but it shouldn’t insist people do anything that doesn’t line up with our Community Guidelines.
  4. Using something that feels like a real currency, such as creating a new crypto-currency for these studios, is not allowed on Scratch. Creating your own pretend point system that you keep track of in projects, comments, or studios is fine, but you should avoid doing anything that feels more like real money than this. Scratch isn’t meant for advertising or buying and selling things with real-world money.

If you have any questions or concerns about these rules, we encourage you to contact us about this.

Scratch on!
yes I very agrre

What is the point system? I know I'm asking like 2 months later. Is it outdated now? What happened to it?
