The Show and Tell Forum

Hi. I just happened to notice that whenever I advertise my projects in the Show and Tell forum, some of the projects get loads of views, but it's only actually showing something like 6 people viewing it in the forum.

Take my project Parking Simulator, it's got just under 400 views at the moment (I think) and it only seemed to have a very small number of views in Show and Tell so does putting it in the forum actually have much effect?

Or maybe it's the thumbnails. It seems like my projects that have title pages seem to get more views than the ones with just a screenshot of the game…

Check out Life Raft Survival, my new advanced sandbox survival game with crafting, building, transportation, weather events, tropical storms, and more!

In the game you're stranded at sea after a mysterious crash and must survive in an unforgiving tropical island environment collecting resources and crafting, in an attempt to finally be rescued.

It does have an effect, but it depends on a lot of things:
- How much time the topic remains on the first page. You can increase its time by posting and bringing it back to the top.
- How many users are on the forums at the time (more during early morning/late afternoon).
- The appeal of the title: is it eye-catching or interesting. Simply making the title “my project” doesn't say much. Don't make too long/irritating to read like "PLEASE CHECK OUT MY NEW GAME CALLED X SIMULATOR YOU CAN FIND IT AT [link here]"
- Pure luck.

As a long time Scratcher, I have found new meaning to the name “Scratch”: for me, it means to “scratch that itch”, to come back again and again to realize new ideas in this toy language, even when I'm capable of creating my projects in real programming languages years later. It's a friend that helped me to pursue programming and get me to enjoy its fruit. I'm certain many others who have walked this path as well have grown fond of its importance in their life.

It's actually a very complicated answer. One possibility is that most of Parking Simulator's views come from people who searched for one of its tags. Another possibility is that the 6 people who viewed the post shared the link with their friends outside of the forums.

Hope this helps!

Please don't spam or necropost.

I'm still on Scratch, but I'm on a new account now. I'll still be posting on the forums on this account, but I just want a fresh start to Scratch.

Um, I don't think it's spam, the user probably thought my post was the Show and Tell Forum not a topic talking about it.

Might want to change the title. People think this is the actual Show and Tell forum XD

I will answer the basic questions on the forums. Advanced stuff? Ask someone else.

My name is Eggs Benedict. I'm an angsty teen who likes to listen to casual bongos, and likes to eat exotic butters.

Hey folks - please advertise your projects by making a new project in the Show and Tell forum rather than doing it here. That way, the discussions are less cluttered and the advertiser gets more visibility on the main forum index.

Pun of the week:
Q: How do you succeed in writing class?
