Could you re-word the assignment? I'm confused. Thanks!

Explain.
Create a project or post that explains my teachings… so just re-word your lessons? Or are we supposed to just narrow it down to what is essential? I wasn't sure because you didn't really use links… Thanks!

Just explain my lessons. Ex: Explain to me the Forums. Act like I'm a New Scratcher, and you are teaching me. And make sure to use links.

I was told I was accepted on my profile…

Anyway:

Username: ItchyCatIII
Job: Mentor (I applied for “mentor, or if we have enough mentors, but need more finders, I'm happy with either”, so I believe I'm mentor since I haven't seen anything in the thread on the matter).
What are you best at?: Coding

Don't you just hate when people advertise in their signatures (and raisin cookies that look like chocolate chip ones. That's just not okay).

Third Assignment:

A new Scratcher has asked you to help them with a game that they have created! Its called

The Amazing Adventures of the Emperor CATFISH!


It includes 2D Graphics where a fish is wandering through the ocean looking for secret seeweed…

He say's that he has this base idea but he can't think of anything else to add to his project and plot. How do you help him?

I would tell the New Scratcher to look at projects that he enjoys, and build ideas from it, “get inspiration”, is how I would word it. However, I would make sure to include that he/she should not copy the idea outright. With a few tweaks and additions of their own, they can make the idea into something more interesting. If I see he/she is having trouble with something particular, I will give he/she links to a few tutorials that could help.

I would give this response to the user

Hi there!

I recommend adding some more details about what happening. For example, how does he (the fish) become/meet the Emperor Catfish. If he becomes the emperor Catfish, what does he do as the empire? If he is just meeting the empire, what happens at the meeting? What does the empire do?

Those are a few of my ideas, that maybe you could answer in your project. Anyway, for more ideas, I recommend seeing the project ideas forum at https://scratch.mit.edu/discuss/9/ . There, you can request ideas, or give ideas. To post there, simply press the “New topic” button, type your subject, type your message (be sure to be specific about what you're looking for: What kind of project, what ideas do you have, and what kinds do you want?) and press post! Soon enough, some Scratchers should give you some ideas!
. I guess that would be WAY over the character limit, but I'd try for something along the lines of that.

Don't you just hate when people advertise in their signatures (and raisin cookies that look like chocolate chip ones. That's just not okay).

You need to help him and provide ideas, not just point him to get inspiration, , although a good strategy, this is not the focus of this exercise.

You can use multiple comments to answer someone's question . I'm not putting a limit for this exercise.

The New Scratcher replies “How do I make the actual game better though… What should happen when the Emperor touches the seeweed.?”
