How would you handle project titles that are all numbers? They would conflict with the current system.

This may be a big problem. Something needs to be done.

Maybe make it so that in the URL the numbers change to letters, like:
1=Q
2=W
3=E
4=R
5=T
6=Y
7=U
8=I
9=O
0=P

So if a title is something like “3.14159265359” (pi) the URL would be “scratch.mit.edu/projects/EQRQTOWYTETO”.





However someone could use this to give out other information… I think Scratch should make it so people can't make titles with 10-digit or more numbers in them.

Wait, here's an idea!

If your title is all numbers when you share a project, it will say that there is an issue with your project title and it cannot be only numbers.

That would fix it… Right?

A signature is a small piece of text that is attached to your posts. In it, you can enter just about anything you like. Perhaps you would like to enter your favourite quote or your star sign. It's up to you! In your signature you can use BBCode if it is allowed in this particular forum. You can see the features that are allowed/enabled listed below whenever you edit your signature.

Spaces wouldn't be counted because a space is just emptiness. For instance, you can't post a comment with just spaces, or make a title with just spaces. In this case, ST could make it so the space wouldn't be counted and the user would still have to add an actual character. You could do this for punctuation, too.


Also, here's another issue: Some titles use special characters (such as Japanese, ♥, ★, etc.), so how would the URL handle those? You can't just leave out the Japanese characters in the URL; titles with all special characters would cause an issue with the URL creation.

in the url you can put a dash -
a space would be a dash -
and a real dash would be left out of the url

I know, but didn't you say special characters would be left out? That's what most sites do instead of creating a hyphen anyway.
For instance, I make my blog page titles with Ø's instead of O's, which would make an example page title twentyonedeer.blogspot.com/p/this-example-is-nt-real (THIS EXAMPLE IS NØT REAL).

Your friend probably misspelled the URL.

EDIT 2: this is my 500th post
