So, I've seen a lot of posts here asking why Scratch is having server trouble, so I thought I'd answer it before you make a topic. The answer is:
quarantine.

Because of quarantine, people have more time, and a lot of people quit Scratch before because they didn't have time. So, now that those people do have time, they are coming back to Scratch. A lot of people are doing this, look at the statistics where there is a huge jump in new comments, not new users. So, because of this spike in activity, Scratch is running slower. That's why there is now a Load Comments button on profiles.

However, this may not apply to everything. Here is what all has been updated to combat the server slowness:
-Studio comment number being 100+ once it gets to 100
-If someone has over 100 shared projects it just says 100+
-No more favorite project count
-No more Studios I'm Following count
-No more Studios I'm Curating count
-Please tell me if I've missed any!

Thanks for reading and stay safe!

There's a problem with the load comments button because it removes the ability to archive comments on profiles in internet archive.

It does? Can't you just click the button then archive it?

I guess I could try

oof. Just tried it, and the archiver did not load them. probably because it does not archive the server contents but who really needs to archive that anyway?

(Im apparently the first person to archive my profile lol)

Ah. I guess you'll have to wait until quarantine is over and the button disappears.

Ok so, I have a problem. I was making a scratch show, and I finally had the timing perfect, then I went to watch it the next day, but all the timing was messed up. And the code is getting deactived. I dont know where to put this, so I finnally decided on this one.

Um the title is dont make a topic
No, the title is read BEFORE making a topic in case this could be the answer. Your problem seems like something with code so there is no reason increased website traffic would cause this.

Makes sense, thanks!
