Am I Online?
I think that scratch should have something to indicate that a person is online or offline. Many people try to keep track of it on their profile, but more often than not its inaccurate. Scratch should add something where there is a green dot or something on the top right corner of a person's profile picture when they are online, and there is not one when they aren't. There should also be the option to turn it off in ‘Account Settings’. That would be great, thats for sure! (If you support this, say 1 +1!)
duplicate ^

Reminders
It would be useful for people who need to update things at certain times, and reminders could do this. Say someone is a manager of a studio and have to make sure they write their name under “Currently Online Managers” or something like that. A reminder could be set that whenever someone logs in they get a reminder saying to update that description! That would be so useful for so many people, including me! (If you support this, say 2 +1!)
not duplicate ^

Support, this would be perfect for people whose browsers don't support IsOnline.

Total support!
For your first suggestion, I am not allowed to get IsOnline and I know that other peoples browsers may not support it, so this would be super useful! By the way, would this be optional?

For the second suggestion, support! I know that you can get a calendar app on a device to remind you, but sometimes people may not be able to get that app depending on the device, so havig a calendar just for Scratch would be great for when you need to do something like finish an order for a shop or something.

For the online indicator, isn't this a duplicate?

For the reminders, I think this would be a neat idea- since when I'm really busy sometimes, I forget things

Support for reminders- I manage a couple of different threads/studios and it would be useful to keep me updated.

Support for is online
No support for reminders tho
Just write it down or use a free reminders app: most devices come with one and just write it down

Thanks!

if you want to be reminded to do things when certain things happen such as signing in; logging out; going to a certain project; etcetera etcetera. you can't set your phone to remind you when those things happen, and you won't always see the paper when you do them either. i see your point though, and i respect your opinion.

This is a rejected suggestion.
39: Online indicator:

We (the Scratch Team) have talked it over a few times - but have never managed to convince ourselves that it is a feature that would benefit Scratch as a creative platform. Making projects, sharing projects, collaborating on projects: these are all things that can happen at a fairly slow pace - whether your friends are logged in or not. When they do log in, they can leave you a comment. An online indicator wouldn't be much help in these areas, which we consider to be the core functionality of Scratch.

Semi-support, it would probably take a while to get a system like that set up, but if a system like that is ever figured out, it could definitely be very helpful.

Support on both of these! It's surprising they haven't been added yet.
