Other Places/Methods to Receive Scripting Help
Note: This post has links to outside of the Scratch website. Always remember to stay safe when using the internet since I can't guarantee the safety of other sites. I recommend you ask a parent to review the links before you visit them. Thanks!

There are lots of places to receive help with Scratch projects! I have placed together a (somewhat) small list of other places to receive help. Remember to always try posting here first, before you branch off to other places! Alright, enough of me blabbing, lets get to the list:
Note: The following methods are not ordered in any specific way.

1. This Forum Section
Well, yeah! It's the whole point of this place, asking for help! If you happen not to get a response here (which is highly unlikely) Then you can move on down the list.
2. Shops
These are threads created by users that have a forum that you can fill out and post as a order! Then, someone will complete the order for you. This is a great way to have a more advanced Scratcher do it for you. (However, please remember to give credit!) Free shops that I recommend are BGMead's Shop and Gentle Rain Coding Studio.
3. Other Projects
If you are looking for a script that you think has already been made, do a quick search for it and you might find it! The search bar is located at the top of the page, and looks like this:
4. Official Scratch Wiki
Everything you would ever need to know about Scratch can be found on the Wiki. What does this block do? It's on there. What was Scratch 1.x like? It's on there. As I said above, it's all on there. Go check it out!
5. Built-In Help Menu
If your looking for help with more simpler things, on the right side of the Scratch editor screen you will see a white bar with a question mark at the top. (It looks something like: (?)) Click on it and it will open a menu of tutorials, block meanings,
and more!
6. Scratch Books
If you like to read, then this is for you! There are many Scratch books out there. Just a few are Super Scratch Programming Adventure, Learn To Program With Scratch, and Learn to Program in 10 Easy Steps.
(which also teaches you how to make your own website!) All of these books have cool projects for you to make, and cover Scratch 2.0.
7. Scratch Help Page and Video Tutorials
Again, more for the simpler help questions. The official Scratch Help Page contains a lot of information, and even has video tutorials for all those non-readers out there. It also has beginner projects you can remix to learn Scratch. The help page is available here.
8. Projects by Scratchers (Scratch 101 Studio)
Not to long ago, there was a SDS (Scratch Design Studio) All about teaching Scratch! You can find it here. There are some cool projects in there!
9. Questions About Scratch Forum (For General Questions)
If you need something general answered, please use this forum.

And that's it! If you see that like I forgot something, made a mistake, made a grammar error, etc. Just leave a reply below and I will fix it! Thank you for reading this!

This is a really useful info, let me suggest to publish a replica(duplicate) in Questions about Scratch.

Ok, but remember it's unfair to bump topics in a short period of time, you did it less than 30 minutes from the original!
You would wait until the topic doesn't appears in the first page or passed 24 hours at least.
Regards.

Why? This is BGMead's work. Posting duplicate threads is not allowed. If you did, please remove it. Thanks.
I also suggested this to be stickied.

Shouldn't the Scratch Wiki be above Scratch Books? It seems like checking the Wiki is more convenient and there is still a good chance it will give you the answer…

(Swallowed by an evil kumquat who was just taking a walk in the neighborhood of evil kumquats when they saw a garage sale where they bought a plate which they used to eat but they discovered that it leaked and they went to get their money back but the sale was over so they went in the house but the door was locked so they got their key but it didn't fit so they went home to use the key on the right door which was their own door and then they decided to swallow a signature for no reason.)
