No support.

1) I do not see why you want a “Noob” status when “New Scratchers” already exist. And if you mean that the profile picture of a person with a Noob status would be a ROBLOX noob, that would be copyright infringement. It is only the members of Scratch that can take advantage of Fair Use, but not the ST. If you take a look at the Scratch Wiki, Scratch is already having some trouble with Fair Use itself since German copyright is not a member of it.

2) A lot of people think that “Noob” is a bad term, and even I only realised it is a mere joke after sticking with the internet for a while. This means that this suggestion could offend a lot of people, which is not great because no one wants a lot of newbies to leave just because of a mere word.

Lots of people make good projects, but they get ignored! You should check out a random project made by a random Scratcher when you aren't busy!

If you need help with something, just ask on the forums, like Help with Scripts or Questions about Scratch

Like @NilsTheBest said, wouldn't it just be easier to ask for help in the forums, instead of changing your entire status and profile image?

Yo, I'm having flashbacks to the “noob tests” people would build on an MMO I used to play.
If you didn't have a Jetpack or Wings, you couldn't pass the noob test and all the people who had a lot of bling would just tomato you

Noob is the same as new scratcher, but more disrespectful.

I don't think it should change your profile picture automatically. What would a “noob” picture be, anyway?

What's the point of this signature? Is it just here because if it wasn't here, it wouldn't be here? And, what if it wasn't here? It would just be doomed to the fate of not being here. Isn't life like that? If you're never born, you never die, but you can only never die if you're never born. But, if you're never born, you're not alive. If you're not alive, doesn't that mean you're dead? But, if you're dead before you're born, that must mean that you start dead, and end dead. But, that can't make sense, because humans say that you die when your life ends. And, speaking of humans, why are they on this planet? Slowly ruling it a little bit more. It doesn't make any sense. To think that once, humans would live in caves, killing rabbits with their bare hands. Now, they have wireless PS4 controllers. As humans progress with technology, us signatures will be enslaved to advertise businesses on EMails. Remember those good old days, when signatures were just little pieces of text with your name on them that you'd put on all your mail? That was fun. Now, we have no use, other than to show existential crises to people who couldn't care less about the uses of signatures.

No support. Just because a scratcher is new, it doesn’t mean he is unexperienced. Furthermore, the term “noob” seems really rude and it is used by people that think they are pros, although they may be not.

What do you think about this game?

If you want noobs on a games programming website why not just use Roblox and the Roblox Forums, they provide everything Scratch does (plus the ability to earn money and monetise content)

I think I found out that you can't add new ranks? Hmmm…

7.2 Add a rank above Scratcher or remove the New Scratcher status
There are three ranks: New Scratcher, Scratcher, and Scratch Team. The only reason the New Scratcher rank exists is to prevent spam, and since it only takes two weeks to become a Scratcher, bullying and separation is rather minimal. Similarly, the Scratch Team rank exists so users know who is on the Scratch Team; generally, Scratch Team members do not brag about the Scratch Team rank. In contrast, there may be division in the community between Scratchers and those with a higher rank, which could also lead to bragging and bullying.

Although the restrictions for New Scratchers may seem annoying, they are extremely effective against spam and inappropriate content. For New Scratchers who are wondering how to become a Scratcher or what it means to be one, check out this post. The Scratch Team will not allow any accounts to “skip” the New Scratcher status, even if it is an alternate account of an existing account.

Edit: Ninja'd. This is removing the New Scratcher status or Adding a rank above scratcher.
No support anyway, calling people “noobs” at things is very rude.

Not necessarily; the owner of the post is talking about a rank below New Scratcher, and the rejected suggestion is a rank above Scratcher.

EDIT: 250th post!!!

EDIT 2: Fixed two minor typos.

Given that a number of people consider the term disrespectful, we won't be going with this suggestion. Please continue to think about things that would improve Scratch.

This is my forum signature! On a forum post, it is okay for Scratchers to advertise in their forum signature. The signature is the stuff that shows up below the horizontal line on the post. It will show up on every post I make.
