Definitions of Scratch Words

First off, please don't ask questions in this topic. Create your own topic to ask your question. Thank you!


Hi everyone! Do you not know what block-spaming is, or what a speed-drawing project is, or anything similar to this?

Well, this is this place for you!

This topic has definitions for some popular scratch words.
If you have something you would like me to define, let me know!


————————————————–


60/120 Second Rule
Scratch has a built-in system that makes sure users don't just randomly spam in the forums.
Once you have posted a topic/post, it will set a “timer”, and it makes sure that you can't post again in that same minute/two minutes.
If you are a new scratcher, this limits you from posting for two minutes. If you are a scratcher, you only have to wait one minute to post.
Block-shade art
Block shade art is a type of art that artistic scratchers like to create. It is commonly created in vector, creating smooth shapes of varrious colors to make a person, animal or object. Check out this studio for some examples of Block shade art.
Blockspam
Blockspam is a type of spam, that involves using scratchblocks to say a message. Example:
when green flag clicked
Read this post
if <reading> then
say [Go to my profile and FOLLOW MEEEEEEE!!! :):):):):)]
end
It is frowned apon if it is not related to the topic(like the example above) but if it is related to the discussion,
it is [allowed v] ::motion
CC, CCE, AT, DT, AR, OC and OP
A CC is a coloring contest.
A CCE is a coloring contest entry.
A AT is art trade/Advanced Topics
A DT is a design trade.
An AR is an art request.
A OC is a original character.
A OP is a Original Post/Poster
Duplicate
If a user posts a suggestion in the forums, but it has already been suggested, another user will usualy step in, saying it's a Duplicate and giving a link to the original topic.
Necro Post
Necro posting is when a scratcher posts on an old topic, bumping it to the top.
Ninja'd
When a scratcher replies to a question, but when he/she posts it notised another post that says the same thing as he/she, he/she will usualy edit their post, saying they were Ninja'd.
AMV, F4F, FPC, FPCA, DTT, DTA, MAP, SDS and PMV
An AMV is a Animation Music Video.
F4F means Follow for Follow.
An FPC is a Front Page Curator
A FPCA is a Front Page Creator Application.
DTT is a Draw That Theme.
A DTA is a Draw to Adopt.
A MAP is a Multi Animator Project
SDS is Scratch Design Studio
A PMV is a Picture Music Video
Random Numbers to Avoid Spam
If a scratcher is, say, telling all of their followers she has a contest, they can't just copy and paste the same message over and over, scratch would think it's spam. So, scratchers will include random numbers at the end of their message to not get detected as spam.
Speed-drawing
A speed-drawing is showing a person/animal/object being created, one frame at a time. Example speed-drawing
ST
The ST stands for the scratch team. The Scratch Team does a lot of things, such as moderate the website, fix bugs, and much more.
To join, you have to be 18+ and work at the MIT.
Stickies
Stickies are posts that give important info concerning the fourms. Example.
Tosh
Tosh is a text-based version of scratch, created for experinced coders. Link: https://tosh.tjvr.org/
Thread hijacking
If a user asks a question, another user may post on it, saying “I have the same problem” or “I've wondered the same thing.” This is discouraged, because it is not constructive and/or adding anything to the post.
Example.

Exactly!

Tosh is a text-based editor for Scratch projects.

Use it to get started with text-based coding,
or just to make Scratch projects faster.

AT also means Art Trade
I suggest you change the topic to something more descriptive, like “Definitions of Scratch Terminology/Slang”

I changed the title to 'Definitions of Scratch Words', if that helps.

you should add DT. Design trade.

Sorry if I seem rude, salty, or just naive, I do my best to help people out on the forums, but my method of help is normally pretty blunt.

if you have a problem with something I'm doing please tell me on my profile, and I'll correct myself.

By the way, “TOSH” isn't capitalized like that (take a look at its site). You should probably call it “Tosh” instead.

art blog – My pronouns are they/them, btw. sparrows one word to the paragraph

@PintOfMilk told me to add it, and he used it in all caps, so that's the way I added it… But i'll change it.

Picture Music Video. Instead of animating a music video, they draw pictures, and they code them to go kind of like slideshow throughout the song.
