Great post! But your information about “Adding a rank above Scratcher” was incorrect (Explanation #21). Here's something I found on a former sticky:

Scratch is not a place for people to worry about ranks. The New Scratcher rank only exists to filter spam, and since it only takes 2 weeks to get a promotion, bullying and separation is minimal. Additionally, this would divide the community between those who have a high rank and those who have a low rank, and there would be lots of bragging and bullying coming from users of higher ranks.
Could you please change that? Thanks!
Your quote text looks creepy.
Why would you say that? I was just trying to make a valid point….
Although it most definitely has been rejected, @daspudlord does not have the authority to accept or reject topics.

Well, it is now, so you should probably get rid of the ITopic.

You know, I've got a really great proof to this one unsolved problem in mathematics, but unfortunately this signature isn't quite big enough to fit it in.

create new list as [ v]

start fill - for pen
end fill - for pen

((0) ^ (0))
while <> is true:

The while <> is true is supposed to be a loop.

Also another idea is to have an option of having more blocks either for all sprites or only for one (now you can only make it for one)

Rejected Features Explainations

The following are rejected features for the website. Explanations are included.


  1. Cloud Chats
    Allowing cloud chats and free chat rooms are not allowed due to the potential for bullying, and the toughness of moderating. If you would like to create chat, then you need to have a list with suitable messages, or create a whitelist, where you type in a message, and the message is run through a dictionary, and then words not on the dictionary are censored. An example of a whitelist is here. An example of a Cloud Chat is here.

  2. Private Messages

    Scratch Wiki wrote:

    While PMing may be helpful, the Scratch Team believes there will be to great of a possibility of it not being constructive to Scratch.

    It would be nearly impossible to moderate the massive number of messages people would send to each other.
    The website wasn't made for the purpose of private messaging; other websites can be used.
    It goes against the “sharing” aspect of Scratch. Having everything public gives a sense of community spirit, whereas if people could communicate privately, this would be ruined.
    It allows people to be mean and bully more easily without letting other users notice.
    It allows people to gossip about other users.
    It goes against the general rules of internet safety, especially since Scratch is a website meant for minors.
    It would greatly increase the amount of spam and wasted server space.

  3. Restricting Sharing/See Inside
    The motto of Scratch is Imagine, Program, Share. Lets quote the Terms and Conditions of this site
    4.3 All user-generated content you submit to Scratch is licensed to and through Scratch under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0 license. This allows others to view and remix your content. This license also allows the Scratch Team to display, distribute, and reproduce your content on the Scratch website, through social media channels, and elsewhere. If you do not want to license your content under this license, then do not share it on Scratch.
    Paddle2See addressed this idea by saying:

    Paddle2See wrote:

    We depend very heavily on our community to help us keep an eye on things and make sure that the Community Guidelines are being followed. Reducing the number of people that can see a project increases the likelihood that inappropriate content could be shared without being reported. That's a risk that we are not willing to take. Keeping everything out in the open is the best way we have found to help keep Scratch friendly and safe.

  4. Rating Projects
    New users may likely create simple projects at first which will receive low ratings. They will then feel bad and want to leave.

  5. Removing 60/120 Second Rule

    Scratch Wiki wrote:

    The sixty-second rule exists to prevent spammers from quickly filling the forums with spam. While the rule does not stop them completely, it greatly decreases the amount of spam posts, giving the Community Moderators and the Scratch Team more time to deal with any problems before they grow too large.

  6. Removing Restricted Image Hosts/Adding your own sites
    These are there as they do not accept inappropriate images, just like Scratch. Scratch Team member Lightning says that the Scratch Team doesn't have the time to add everyone's sites to the whitelist.

  7. Deleting comments on other profiles/Deleting Forum Posts
    It is so you cant just post spam and stuff. Jvvg says it better:

    jvvg wrote:

    This is so that people can't post troll comments and then delete them, while you aren't likely to troll people on your own projects, studios, or profile…)

  8. 3D Scratch

    jvvg wrote:

    Scratch is a language that is designed to be as easy as possible for beginners to pick up. Adding 3D would make the language extremely complicated, and much more difficult for beginners to understand. There is a sister program to Scratch that contains 3D features, called Starlogo TNG. However, a different group has started developing a 3D version of Scratch that you can see at www.scratch3d.org.

  9. <broadcast received>

    jvvg wrote:

    There is way too much ambiguity to how this would work. Would it return true of the broadcast was fired at any point since the project was created, since the green flag was clicked, since something else was broadcasted, etc.? If you really want to do something like this, instead just make a variable and set it to 1 and use the equals block.

  10. Game Badges/Achievements
    On this suggestion, the user Faillord wrote
    Basically what I'm saying is, Scratch is not a gaming site. It is for making and sharing projects, including games, but if you want achievements for what you make, then sorry, it could be harmful. If you want achievements, program them into your projects, make a badge project for yourself and make it your profile feature, but we don't need this system for rating users.

  11. Changing Usernames
    Paddle2See says
    Unfortunately, this would create too much confusion in the community - and our system isn't setup to handle it. Please feel free to make a new username if you are not happy with your current name.

  12. Off-Topic/Miscellaneous Forum
    It was shut down for multiple reasons. You can read the Wiki article on it. It has been split up into Things I'm Making/Doing and Things I'm Playing/Creating.

  13. 13+ Site
    Scratch is for all ages. Simple as that.

  14. Removing Add Everything Studios
    It is not against the Community Guidelines. Just remove your project if you don't want it there.

  15. Scratch Money
    Paddle2See wrote
    Scratch is an educational site for learning and creating - not for making money. Charging money to run scripts would limit people's access to Scratch. It would also add a lot of complexity to the site without any clear benefit towards increasing the educational value.

  16. Remove Phone # Sensor
    It is so users don't share their personal information.

  17. Text Based Games
    Read this.

  18. Banning Minor Remixes
    See explanation 3.

  19. Banning Follow For Follow
    Paddle2See wrote
    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.

  20. Ignore List (Blocking Users)
    It just buries the problem. If you have a problem, report the user.

  21. Adding Ranks above Scratcher
    Not clear whether rejected.

  22. When Stop Sign Clicked
    This will cause more scripts to start when you want to stop the project.

  23. Live Editing
    Paddle2See wrote
    I agree that it isn't something we can support right now, because of the moderation and technical issues, however I don't agree with the statement that it teaches bad collaboration techniques. Just because it isn't the way something is done now, or by most people, isn't always a good reason to reject it.

    I do think it should be added to the rejection list because the moderation and technical issues are quite substantial and I don't think we should spend time discussing it until we have more resources available to address those.

  24. Banning Voice Acting
    Currently, there is not enough technology to track you based on your voice.

  25. Banning Projects with No Programming

    It is. Scratch is a site that encourages creativity in many forms. We'd love it if everyone used the programming aspect, but we're not going to require it.

I think that means that it's both.

I'm sorry if some of my posts seem blunt or harsh. I usually don't like to sugar-coat the things I say, and sometimes I can be blunt or insensitive; I genuinely try to come across as a nice, constructive person, but I've never really been the best at reading people, so if I accidentally offend you, please tell me and I'll try my best to fix it.
