Why are there so many people who have done nothing on Scratch?

There are so many accounts such as this one or this one. Why do they exist and why have they done nothing?

Why are there so many people who have done nothing on Scratch?

Honestly, I don't know. Most people call them spam accounts because they were made years ago to do nothing. I've also heard that they could be accounts that the ST used to test the site. Or they could be active users, that just make projects and don't share them.
This is yet a mystery that is unsolved.

Nobody knows…

If that was the case, then why would the ST make so many of them? Let's see: @the, @a, @no, @yes, @fadingshadow, @ded, @active, @-_- (yes, that IS a real account BTW), @999, @bye, @hiddenshadow, @gon, @ttyl, @—__— @yolo_ and so many others… If they were actually ST-made, wouldn't they have just created one or two of those accounts and then deleted them? Also, a lot of those accounts are pretty old but some are also relatively recent, if the ST made test accounts wouldn't they all be from 10 years ago when they were still testing out Scratch?

I guess they could be, but why would they not share their projects? IDK

_________________________

I personally think account names like @the, @active, @no, and @ded were created by people just for the fun of it, to occupy such a username. That doesn't explain the more obscure usernames like @hiddenshadow, and @—__— though…

Some accounts are spam accounts or were just made for fun.

Others used to be active but have probably left the community now.

Maybe some left. Some people unshare and unfavourite and un follow when they leave Scratch. My friends have accs so they can comment, nothing else.

Usually, because someone wanted to take the name.

Some accounts like @X_o etc. are still active.

Yup. x__0 is still active. I wanted to take this username, but I wrote something in it. However your theory does make sense.

Accounts that only exist because of their names (@no, @one, @yes, @bob, @etc), people who joined because they were interested but lost the motivation or forgot the name or password of their account, people like me who are too lazy and unmotivated to make projects, etc.

I think the people aren't creative and lost motivation. Maybe they started a project and abandoned it and the account.

set [variable v] to [true]
if <<I finally learned how to do a signature :: sensing> = <variable :: variables>> then
set [response v] to [YES!!!!!]
end
say (show::looks stack) for (stop [all v]::cap) secs

Some of them have done something (like sharing a project).
by the way, aking_, usernames can only be 3 - 20 characters long so you can’t create an account with the username ‘no’.

Believe it or not, @user was actually once active, they shared some projects and actually replied to comments!
