A Way to Promote Those Advertised Projects

So you might have realized the Show and Tell forum is a pretty useless forum. Why? Well, people advertise, but the amount of people that actually go there and check out what users have made is pretty low.

My suggestion is:

'Advertise' the Show and Tell forum

Now why not just show off all the latest projects? Well if a Scratcher isn't willing to show off their project they clearly don't care for the amount of views they get. Also, having a place with all the latest projects won't always show everyone's projects.

I would like to place ‘advertisements’ for the Show and Tell forum:

-When you share a project it can show a message which is non-distracting and won't need to be turned off, that explains you can make a post about your project and ultimately get more attention
-As a New Scratcher when browsing the Popular tab in explore it could say “Want attention on your project? Try and make a post here!”

This also would promote the forums in general; though it's not my original point.

Actions speek louder than words.

Yes. You are right. The ‘Show And Tell’ is useless because nobody cares. They create their own projects.
I would be better to advertise somewhere where your ad will be noticed, or else - your ad is pretty useless
So, I agree.

Enter my project competition and have a chance to win awesome prizes!

Yeah, having people actually going to the Show and Tell forum would make the name have a lot more purpose

Promoting the forums would be nice; it took me many months to find them

Sorry, it may seem a bit scattered, but I'm suggesting that the ST ‘advertise’ the Show and Tell forum.
I explained in the post doing so would help in a multitude of ways.

Maybe it should be more obvious.

Please read my signature! It might explain some lingo that I used in my post or comment. However, not all of it shows, so you have to highlight the entire bottom of the post, from “Please read my signature!” to where it says report, and copy and paste in into a new sheet or tab or whatever.
I can't decide my signature between:
1. I'm a grammar stickler, and my pet peeve is when people use good as an adverb.
2. I have lots of [creativity]original ideas[/creativity]. [creativity]This[/creativity] is one of those ideas.
3. If I used this symbol: ⸮ in my comment, please look it up before doing anything else.
4. {Minot, North Dakota/Donald Trump parodies} “WE'RE GONNA BUILD A DAM AND MAKE CANADA PAY FOR IT!” “When Canada sends its water, they’re not sending their best drinking water…They’re bringing sleet. They’re bringing floods. The water's toxic.” (It's just a joke that I came up with.)
5. One should make his/her signature text small; that way (s)he can cram more text into the signature.
6. New [scratchblocks] idea each week! (Thanks to Bright-Idea (Read her signature.) for inspiration/the general idea.) Here's the archive:
Note: I stopped this because of signature character limits.

yes yes yes This is so needed. I use the Show And Tell forum but barely get any views. As opposed to my collaboration ad that garnered 91 views in 3 days. This is one of the best suggestions I have ever seen

Agreed, and I support. The top header of the Scratch website (Create, Explore, Discuss, etc.) doesn't really call attention out to users, so the Forums aren't really noticeable. Most of the time, I wonder how new Scratchers find the forums xD

Good idea. It's easier for people to advertise their projects and perhaps help get rid of the advertising on project comments.
