Note: IP banned users cannot contact the Scratch Team. However, IP banned users can see certain pages using the new interface (i.e. Projects, search bars, etc.). Most pages using the older interface (i.e. User pages, discussion forums, etc.) will be blocked from view. As emails are blacklisted during an IP ban, users will be disallowed from creating accounts from banned emails as well. [citation needed]
The fact that a citation is needed indicates to me that this quote was more-or-less false. As I indicate above, anyone can contact the Scratch Team even if they are IP banned, perhaps by using some random Apple computer in a library where the IP address is different. Maybe there's something I'm misremembering about IP bans, but I believe it is false that IP banned users are completely unable to contact the Scratch Team.

Furthermore, the claim that “emails are blacklisted during an IP ban” is also false. From my time as a Scratch Team member, I know for a fact that a user's email is unaffected by an IP ban.
I’m not sure how Scratch works, but usually in most sites an ip ban just terminates the account and stops anyone with the ip address to make a new account until they appeal their ban.

In the Speak () (block) page, it doesn't say anything about the 128 character limit the block has, nor anything about the bad word filter (which to my knowledge is the same one as the one at the bottom of this page).

I can’t access the Scratch Wiki - anyone having the same problem?

Never in my life will I shut up about my cringe username. Never.

Oh yeah, here's some random ads:

I’m having the same problem. This is longer than most downtimes. It’s been over an hour.

Edit: The Wiki is still down as of 8:30 AM ET, meaning it's been down for over three hours.

Yes, looks like a server downtime. It should be back up soon enough

I'm here for the Scratch wiki FR and it's not just a problem of the wiki in English. The wikis are all still unavailable at the moment, all the Scratch wikis, whose link is given on this page. I hope that everything will return to normal soon so that everyone can access the content. Thanks a lot!

Yes, all of the Wikis are hosted on Martin's servers which appear to be down.

I also can't access the admin panel, so the problem is with the host. Unfortunately there isn't much I can do about this other than wait for it to be fixed.

It looks like the web server is running again but the database server is still down. Hopefully this will be resolved shortly.

I was getting database errors mixed in with web server errors earlier… Now it's just showing database errors

so another thing you can add to raids is studio raids. they are when a person promotes someone and overuses their power they delete curators. and delete projects all for fun.
