Are face reveals allowed on Scratch?

Hey, everyone! I was just wondering if face reveals were allowed on Scratch. I've been thinking about that question since last week.

Are face reveals allowed on Scratch?

Not really, especially if the project is focused on showing your face. If there's another reason, though, for instance your face in a game, then it's probably fine.

Some people also show their face on their profile picture. This is fine.

The reason face reveal projects aren't allowed is that they tend to lead to disrespectful comments.

I think they're generally not advised for safety reasons though, as everyone has said, I don't think there's a specific rule against using your face.

I believe it's fine to use your face, the problem is a face reveal. It creates too much attention on your face and can lead to hurtful comments.

Mostly not. You can only show it if your parents are fine with it.

I would be perfectly fine listing all the featured creators going to Vidcon 2019

If you feel comfortable you can show your face, but I recommend not to because it's a privacy issue. Just like powercon5, people might say hurtful things to your face.

It's not against the rules to do a face reveal, but it's discouraged because kids may unknowingly do a face reveal not knowing the consequences. Only reveal your face or other personal information when you are absolutely certain.

I don't think it's against any scratch team rules, but one thing you have to worry about is the comments, online stalking or kidnapping, and other dangerous things can happen if your reveal/post your identity online. So, I don't recommend it. Though there is a scratcher that had revealed their face twice and their voice, too.

i'm pretty sure it is. because one time I remember going through an ST member's comments and one asked if face reveals were allowed, and the ST member said no.

What did she say? What did you do without me? What did you do? Did you play games without me? What did you play? Did you think all this time that I wouldn't find out about you? That's right I heard the story over and over again Gee, it's swell to finally meet her other friends Who am I? Who am I? What are you even saying? I'm the loser of the game you didn't know you were playing! Let's play another game this time I get to win Lives on the line Winner takes all Ready or not Let's begin! oh, that's right I heard the story over and over again Gee, it's swell to finally beat her other friends Oh, that's right I heard the story, don't really like how it ends Gee, it's swell to finally beat her other Other Ooooooooootherrrrrrr friendddssssss
