Support since it would help other Scratchers get noticed

So semi-support. I like the idea but I wouldn't care if this wasn't added.
Also; there should be a few restrictions to these:
-Can't land on deleted accounts
-Can't land on banned users
-Can't land on unshared/deleted/removed projects
-Can't land on removed studios

I think those restrictions were implied with the suggestion.

Semi-support, I feel this might be similar to the Recently Shared section where no-one uses it because most of the projects are pretty basic.

I think people already made tools that take you to random projects. I'm gonna do some digging, brb

Aight, I'm done digging. Here's the link: https://scratch.mit.edu/discuss/post/2359939/
It uses Scratch's API to find shared projects. This logic should probably apply to users and studios too.

EDIT: Decided to look up in the wiki. Apparently you can't find shared studios or users?

This seems pretty cool: give more attention to less-known Scratchers who might have good projects, and also if you're bored.
My question is: how would it look (what would the buttons be like)?

Support bump.

And all the world over, each nation's the same,
They've simply no notion of playing the game.
They argue with umpires, they cheer when they've won,
And they practice beforehand, which ruins the fun!

-1 I don't think anybody would use this because you would find
Spam Accounts and AE studios
People who JUST joined and haven't made anything
Same reason people don't look at recently shared

The only people who would use this would be Follow all Accounts

I think on scratch's homepage there should be three/two buttons. One will be “random project” and it will link you to a random project on the site. same for random scratcher (and random studio?).

I think this is a great idea, and I support it. It reminds me of random article buttons found on wikis.

Random Scratcher, project, and studio buttons.

Here is a concept of it. There could be a category button called “Random”. It loads a list of random projects.

Or it will just lead you to a random project itself, if that is what you are suggesting.

That's what I'd like to see, the random project. I do like your Explore idea though, and I'd be happy with it

I feel more like this.
1: It would be a dropdown on the toolbar. It would include two buttons
2: Just two buttons located at the homepage.
Either way, they wouldn't show you in advance. You would be blind. That would help the “judge a book by it's cover” thing a bit more.

Half-support.
It could take you to just a copied project, or, like, someone's first project that is just the cat.
There are a lot of studios on Scratch, so I don't really know.

You replied to another Scratcher that had part of this same suggestion with “no support” and now you support the exact same suggestion but with two more buttons?

something was here and now it's not

Nobody would ever be able to know what the Random button would do in the homepage, causing suggestions of removing the button appear with reasons saying, “At first I didn't know what the button does and I was scared, Support”.

If users were actually searching for projects, this setup in Explore would work in-case they have no idea on what to find.
