Please make sure your posts are constructive. If you don't know the answer to an online question, it's better to just not answer than to answer “i don't know” and cluttering up the topic.

ST, Please Add A Warning When A Size Limit Is Exceeded

Do you use Forkphorus on a regular basis? Try using TurboWarp instead - a new project from the creator of Forkphorus that combines Forkphorus with the Scratch editor.

Evil kumquats keep eating your signature? Assert your dominance and eat the evil kumquats. Did you know that kumquats are only about the size of an olive?

This signature is kumquat-proof, but it is not loquat-proof…

Sorry, the rest of this signature is eaten by an evil loquat.

Why would you ever need to link someone a Phone Number? And if you really did, do it somewhere else; like Facebook, or Google Hangouts.

yeah exactly

Eventually, when we get to the next digit in the project codes, the phone number censor will replace all link project codes with XXXXXXXXXX, and people will not be able to tell eachother about their projects, or link their new project on their profile, you may need to fix this.
Wow… I didn't really think about this, because I didn't know we were so close. That's going to be a big problem.
We're 41% of the way there and getting ~100M/year, so we should run into this sometime around 2025-6.

New “fix the block” round coming soon. In the meantime, here you go.


Wait…

The easiest way to fix this would be to exempt the phone number filter in Scratch URLs.

Except for one HUGE problem…

Let's say your number is 314-159-2653 (This is pi, and actually not even a real phone number so don't get mad at me). You could give out your number by linking to this project:
https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/3141592653/

All you'd have to do is say something like “the number in the URL is my number” and people would get what you meant.

Another fix could be to skip 10 letter URLs and jump to 11 letters, but this presents another problem:
PHONE NUMBERS IN NON-USA COUNTRIES

This is a way bigger problem than it seems…
yeah. maybe skip to 20 characters? but that would take SO MUCH SPACE
"My phone number is the numbers in scratch.mit.edu/projects/55531428280000000000/ but without the 0s.
(Phone numbers starting with 555 are reserved for fictional purposes.)

New “fix the block” round coming soon. In the meantime, here you go.


Wait…
