Hey folks -

We have become aware that a number of projects that were edited since the morning of 4/8/2021 may have been afflicted with an issue that caused some of the costumes or backgrounds to appear as “gray question marks”.

We believe we have fixed the issue so that projects can now be edited without turning costumes or backgrounds into question marks. However, if you do have projects that were affected, we recommend that you do not do any further work on them. We are looking into the possibility of restoring those projects to an earlier version that does not have the question marks - and we don't want you to lose any more work.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
When is it fixed?

Most people would have already seen inside and done something before seeing this. Maybe you could give people alrets.

I have a extention that exports blocks into SVG, when the SVG has a rendering error, it will have the grey “?”
I am not telling the extention name

I did a non-imported vector image for quartzOS and it turned into the question mark, but I managed to fix it by touching it and fooling around

This makes sense, considering the following:
  • “Gray question marks*” are the results of assets that fail to load. (Source)
  • TurboWarp relies on the same assets servers as Scratch to be able to load projects.
*a bit of a misnomer, considering that the box is grey and not the question mark itself, which is black. I much prefer to call them “grey boxes of doom”.

It happens because: You downloaded a png then change .png to .svg. It confuse scratch if its a .png .svg .jpeg and more. It cant identify the costume. So it uses a ? sprite for it to not get even more worse.

I do agree!

it's computers get confused and then it changes intro a “?” block

There is a thread about this from 2019, so I think it didn't get bad until recently.

Thanks for your help.

Seems like this is a problem with the assets server and not the editor or the SVG renderer

k1412483

yeah
