The New Advanced Topics FAQ

Paddle2See said I can make this. This is meant to replace the old one, as it hasn't been updated in well over a year, and the user is inactive.

This topic serves as a “Frequently Asked Questions” topic for users visiting the ATs.

Please visit this topic before asking any questions such as “How do I convert .sb2 to .exe?” and the like.

Definitions

AT
The shortened name for the Advanced Topics

ATer
Someone who browses and actively posts on the AT.

Python
A popular programming language that is pretty common and widely known.

Stack Overflow
A Q&A website full of programmers.

Scratch Mod
A modification of Scratch using open-source code.

Open Source
A project that's source code is public and reusable. (Similar to Scratch and it's remixing system.)

Who is “thisandagain”?
Thisandagain is a Scratch Team member who actively posts on the AT forums. For some users, it has become a running joke to say that he should “pls explain” (read “please explain”) topics having to do with the Scratch website malfunctioning.

How do I get noticed here?
We are an extremely welcoming group of users and tend to be more mature than most of the Scratch website because we are older. When you visit here, please refrain from using excessive CAPS, emoticons, or Talking Like This, and most people will be more than willing to help you or support you.

I need some technical help.
If your problem has to do with Scratch, please see if your topic would be more appropriate for Bugs and Glitches or Questions about Scratch first. If you post there and no one knows what you're talking about, you can post here

If your problem does not have to do with Scratch, please ask a question on Stack Overflow before coming here.
Please be sure to use proper grammar and be nice while visiting Stack Overflow. It is a website full of adults, most with actual programming jobs, so they expect you to be on your best behavior there.



Here's some topics that I think might be helpful (partially copied from Paddle2See's topic)

Yeah. I've added a considerable amount.

Here's the last AT FAQ

- Sheep_maker This is a kumquat-free signature. :P
Please don't feel the obligation to post on every single topic you see; eventually you will resort to spam.
Another suggestion has been implemented!
.postsignature { overflow: auto; } .scratchblocks { overflow-x: auto; overflow-y: hidden; }

“What PL should I learn” links to a shady freenom page…

“…the keynote speaker asked the audience to indicate by show of hands, one, how many people disliked C++, and two, how many people had written a C++ program. There were twice as many people in the first group than the second. Expressing dislike of something you don’t know is usually known as prejudice.” - Bjarne Stroustrup

I program webpages and in Processing.js. Processing.js on Khan Academy (note my name), and webpages I do basically anywhere. I found Scratch long after I was becoming experienced in web based languages and JavaScript. I'd be interested in learning about bugs in Scratch, or how to modify its functionality, and exploit those bugs to make my life easier.

You could just post a new topic in AT or Questions about Scratch instead of posting it here…

Thank you in advance

If you make a script that says “If <(whatever variable here) is less than (zero)>, set (same variable) to zero”, the variable you use should never go below zero before being corrected back to zero.
