What NOT to Post in the "New Scratchers" Forum

I've seen a lot of forums that don't belong in the “New Scratchers” forum going around, so I figured we needed guide about it.

1. Don't Ask for Followers

We all know you want to be recgonised for your work, but the “New Scratchers” forum is NOT the place to ask for followers. It you want people to notice you, post in the “Show and Tell” forum instead.

2. Don't Spam/Necropost

The same goes with any forum, but this one needs a special reminder. Spam is rude, and makes it harder for Scratchers to find New Scratchers to welcome, witch means that New Scratchers don't get welcomed! Necroposting does the same thing.

3. Don't Create Places to Chat or “Introduce Yourself Here!” Posts

The “New Scratchers” forum is not a place for unrelated chat. We don't need “Chat Here!” posts, but feel free to make a studio for it. The problem with those is that they're spam. They aren't needed. “Introduce Yourself Here!” posts are also spam. This whole forum is for introducing themselves. Plus, posting in those makes them less likely to get welcomed.

4. Don't Make a Guide to Scratch

You may love helping out the community, but making a guide isn't the way to do it. There are already enough helpful guides stickied, we don't need any more. Even if you just REALLY want to help New Scratchers, guides are considered spam because we already have enough. You can help out simply by welcoming some New Scratchers.


5. Don't Make a Topic Just to Say Hello UNLESS YOU'RE INTRODUCING YOURSELF

The “New Scratchers” forum isn't a place to just say hello. It's considered spam. If you want to say hello, try on your profile instead. Even if you're just trying to be friendly, you can say hello as you welcome a New Scratcher. It helps keep the forums neat if we don't have a bunch of useless topics floating around. If you're new, that's another case. Please say hello if you're new!

Thanks for reading this guide to what NOT to post in the “New Scratchers” forum.

Please let me know if you find any spalling or grammer errors.

Fixed spelling errors.

I also think you should add something about making topics like “Guide to Scratch!” or something like that. There's already plenty of guides already that are stickied, and I don't think more need to be made. This, however, is a very good guide.

I will agree with the statements above. DON'T TRY TO GET ATTENTION ON HERE! The best way to get attention is to take the time to create a quality project.

You report it to be stickied. Anyway, I already asked the ST. They said it's too negitive.

Okay, I'm going to close this, because I'm leaving this account. I give Abstract- permission to make another like this so it may continue being edited.
