So, we're getting some confusion about the purpose of the “Requests” thread, and finding a lot of threads being misplaced here. Scimonster made a huge helpful list about which requests go where, so I'm reposting it (with a few edits so it fits the current 2.0 forums). Hopefully this topic will clear up which requests goes where. :)

  • Help with Scripts — Requesting help with your scripts
  • Show and Tell — Requesting views and/or feedback on a project and/or studio (formerly called a “gallery”)
  • Project Ideas — Requesting ideas and/or feedback on ideas for projects
  • Collaboration — Requesting members for your collaboration, and other things with collaborations (although advanced collaborations go in Advanced Topics)
  • Requests — Requesting media like a signature, music, or art; creating a request shop for those items

  • Bugs and Glitches — Requesting bug fixes found in the Scratch Software or Scratch website
  • Questions About Scratch — Requesting help with certain features of Scratch
  • Suggestions — Requesting new features for the Scratch 2.0 software or website
  • Advanced Topics — Requesting help with advanced features using Scratch or Scratch modifications
  • Connecting to the Physical World — Requesting help with PicoBoards, Lego WeDo, and other interfaces connecting Scratch to the physical world

  • Things I’m Making and Creating — Requesting feedback/discussion on things you made outside of Scratch (NOTE: stuff made in Scratch e.g, projects, belong in Show And Tell)
  • Things I’m Reading and Playing — Requesting discussion on media like books, movies, music, games, etc.

  • Scratch in other Languages — Requesting help with Scratch in languages other than English (use a specific one if your language is there)
  • Translating Scratch — Requesting parts of the Scratch Program and/or Website be localized to your language.

There are other requests that don’t go in specific forums. For these, the report button or “Contact Us” link (found at the bottom of the Scratch webpage) should be used.
  • Requesting a topic to be moved — If you see a topic in the wrong forum, please report it to be moved.
  • Requesting your topics to be closed — When a topic is closed, other people cannot post in it. I occasionally request for others’ topics to be closed when they do not know how to report, but only after they’ve posted that they want it closed.
  • Requesting your topics to be opened — Sometimes, after a topic got closed, you will want it open again. Simply report it with your reason for reopening.
  • Requesting a signature to be reviewed by a mod — If you see a signature that you feel needs to be checked out by a mod (example: bad signature image, inappropriate link, etc.), use the report link.

  • Requesting an admin to review a project, studio, comment, or profile page description — Don't use the forums for those things at all! Use the appropriate flag/report links to report those things to the Scratch Team (it's faster that way and helps to keep other Scratchers from viewing potential inappropriate content).
  • Requesting an admin to about an alert/notification — If you have a question about an alert/notification you received, use the “Contact Us” link at the bottom of the Scratch webpage to get in contact with a Scratch Team member.

Requesting your topics to be closed —
You don't need to anymore - the OP has a “Close topic” link.
Requesting an admin to review a project, gallery, or profile —
studio*

Requesting your topics to be closed — When you made a topic, and it got answered, you can ask for it to be closed. This way other people cannot post in it.

There Is A, “Close Topic” Link.

EDIT : Only For Your Own Topics

It's not on the post, it's at the bottom of the thread page.

Well, the button doesn't appear for closed topics, of course - you can't close a topic that's already closed.

If it's closed then it'll say Open Topic.

Maybe change this thread's title to READ THIS BEFORE USING THE REQUESTS FORUMS

Where can I request projects to be featured?

There's a sticky thread in “Show and Tell” that ask for suggestions for featured projects. Just be sure to follow the guidelines in that thread before suggesting anything.

Ok, thanks! Also, where and how do I make a signature, like yours?

Go to the forum listing (click Discuss)
Then scroll all the way down and click the link that reads “Change your signature” (it's toward the left side)

Type in something witty and press Submit.
