Ban Follow For Follow (F4F)

Oh, and not to mention, if F4F was discouraged (don't ban it, that just causes hate), it would still cause hate because many people who just want to annoy people (i.e. the ones who stereotype 8-year-olds) could now use the Scratch Team as evidence to say no to the ones who ask for f4f and these haters would just win.

I can't really think of a better word for “hate,” but in this case “hate” would mean depression and feeling like you are being bullied.

Just ignore them; it's essential for life.

I like this idea tons! This seems like this could be the solution to the F4F problem.

Ban Follow For Follow (F4F)

Scratchers should be encouraged to not do F4F, not forced. You have very good points here, why not educate other users about this?

I feel would like to edit my past response, I think they should be negatively impacted for F4F. Possibly have a system for reporting posts that violate rules. The staff that run the website should then evaluate the situation and deside on a punishment, from 5 min ofline to something like a karma system. Have people that post often and make good projects rewarded with + karma and people who F4F or do other rule breaking activities given - karma. Just a suggestion

Support. People shouldn't think the illusion that f4f = real followers is true.

The above post was likely clear sass. 10 outta 10.
Unless it wasn't. Which happens from time to time. Sadly.

No support, if F4F causes the fame issue, then why not remove the favorite and love system?

No support, F4F isn't against the community guidelines although it is annoying.

However, I don't think we will be acting on your suggestion - because it's not enforceable (how would you stop people from asking for f4f?) and it's essentially harmless (if you don't want to participate in f4f, just politely decline). Tell them that you prefer to follow based on things you find interesting.

I think that Forced F4F should be removed. It is unfair and spam.

I honestly don't care if others do follow for follow; if people ask you, then just ignore them.

Even though I do hate F4F, people do have a right to do Follow 4 Follow. Yes, it's a fame counter, but it was based of friends in 1.x.

No support - people have a right
Right you are! It does look like this is a duplicate topic of this one - and it's been rejected (see the link) so I'll close it.
