Yes.
Not really.
It is necessary.

Using all-caps actually makes the title harder to read for some.

I advertised this in a project. Link. Hopefully it will rally more supporters.

It is definitely not necessary. This is a suggestion just like the others in this section. Imagine if all of them had all-caps titles like this one.

Search bar does seem a bit small. I'll ask the rest of Scratch Team about it. You can still see what you're typing though, so it's still functional.

A link to “About” was placed in the navigation bar to support newcomers on the Scratch website. There were a few other reasons too, I believe. So I don't believe that will be changing.

Seems like there's enough space to keep the About tab and lengthen the Search bar…

Support! Needs to be implemented!
(wait, am I spamming now? )
Yes, huge support. The wiki is much much better to add on the bar.
And huge support for the relengthening of the search bar that I use everyday!
EDIT: Calming this post down :P

Meh, support - really the only time someone would need to go to the About page is when they're new to the site and have no idea what Scratch is, while the other links are used (or meant to be used) somewhat more frequently.

A link to the Wiki is already in the Help page.

Though it does look like many people don't ever find out there's a Wiki for Scratch.

This.

As a compromise, when you're a Scratcher, it goes away?

Yes. So I never have to see it ever ever again. But it will show up when I'm logged out…

The reason was to support newcomers. Old-timers (like me) don't really see a need for it. To quote Prinseskat, “Really the only time someone would need to go to the About page is when they're new to the site and have no idea what Scratch is, while the other links are used (or meant to be used) somewhat more frequently.” Also the search bar is small, and that needs a definite fix. If you want to add a new tab, how about the Scratch Wiki (but it's not available in every language)?

Also, see my compromise idea above.

Thanks for your concern - the message has been received.

In the future, please don't make your subject titles so “loud” with all-caps and a ton of extra words. It makes it hard to read the index and it's kind of rude to the rest of the topics as it hogs the reader's attention. I've calmed this one down for you

This is my forum signature! On a forum post, it is okay for Scratchers to advertise in their forum signature. The signature is the stuff that shows up below the horizontal line on the post. It will show up on every post I make.

I'd like to see the wiki instead. Or maybe a complete redisign of the task bar altogether?

Thanks! I hope this message speaks loud and clear.

Edit: I've found a new typo I often make.

Could either of these happen by any chance?
