About
The Emerald Shop is a multi-purpose shop which provides 16 services. We can do anything from art to scripting to voice acting. We have had three presidents and are therefore on our third forum thread. We have 182 pages total on our two previous threads and over 100 on this one. We are always receiving and completing quality orders of many kinds. We have many members and have been awarded the Scratch Shop World Records award for Most Employees in a Shop. As of now, according to @congyingzhou (owner of TIPS and The Shop Directory 12.0), we are the fourth biggest shop on Scratch.

History
This shop was founded on the 20th of May 2016 by @JakeCarroll. We joined the shop federation, which later closed. We soon grew to 19 members. We remained active until April 2017 and then became very inactive. However, in February 2018 we became active again. 13 of our members became inactive and we dwindled to 6 members. We joined the USS. We started getting a good few orders most of which we completed. Within a few months, we grew to 12 members. @JakeCarroll's new account @FloatingMuffins took over the shop. In June 2018, we introduced elections for our USS reps. We simplified our shop structure. We soon joined the SPA and entered a partnership with Toadcode’s Music Shop and TIPS. We were awarded a certificate for “Most Employees in a Shop”. Due to FloatingMuffins' inactivity starting in late October 2018, @npjensen and @pinkiepie710 moved the shop to a new thread created by @npjensen on December 12th of 2018. In January of 2019, @npjensen grew inactive, and @pinkiepie710 was given presidency of the shop. She then moved it to yet another thread on February 13th of 2019 with 29 members. The shop largely remained the same until around May 2019, when much of our staff became inactive and unclaimed orders began piling up. Some members came and went, but the shop usually had around 30 members, though many were inactive. Many long-time, dedicated members of the shop, including those on the Board of Directors, remained. Soon, a new batch of members did begin working at the shop. At the end of June 2019, many members of the shop began to resign. Many active members also had to put on leave due to summer vacation, and it became harder to complete orders on time. The shop declined to about 20 members. Despite this rocky period, the shop continued to run smoothly and remained as one of the biggest Scratch Shops, though we were passed by T.I.P.S. and got bumped down to fourth largest.

The Terms
  • You must follow the group studio (Found here)
  • If you are on the Board, you must follow the Board studio (Found here)
  • The codeword is coinkydink (like coincidence haha). You must include this word in your staff application or else you will be rejected.
  • You must be active. Activity checks are held periodically, so you must reply to them (do so in the shop studio)
  • You will not be notified in the event of an activity check. The purpose of activity checks is to find out who checks the shop regularly on their own, so you must check on your own to find out if there is an activity check or not.
  • If you are fired from the shop, you will be notified on your profile and you may reapply.
  • You must be respectful to anyone who comes through the shop unless they are spamming, not obeying the rules of the shop/Scratch, or not being respectful towards you/the shop.
  • Failiure to comply with any of these terms may result in a strike against you or being fired from the shop.

Proposing a new rule/suggestion to the shop
1. The proposal must have the support of two members on the Board of Directors
2. It is debated by the shop.
3. It is voted on by the shop (it needs over 50% support to become law).

Activity Checks
There will be activity checks on the first of every month. If pinkiepie710 doesn't call the check on time, then one of the VPs will. pinkiepie710 will keep track of who has responded, but a VP is capable of making the official announcement. You will have one week to respond to these activity checks. If you do not respond you get one strike. If you get three strikes you are fired from the shop. If you are on the Board of Directors, you need two strikes to get removed from the BoD.

Customer Notifications
Customers must be notified:
  • When their order has been taken
  • If the staff member doing their order has any questions/problems
  • If their order may be late
  • When their order is done
