About
The Emerald Shop is a multi-purpose shop that provides 15 services; art, scripting, music, writing, ideas, animations, reviews, sound, advertising, voice acting, GIFs, BBCode, signatures, pen, and memes. We've been around for almost four years, and we've been one of the biggest shops on Scratch for most of that time. We have many skilled employees who are always completing orders of many kinds, from art to scripting to voice acting. We have had three other threads in the past; we've moved twice because the shop president changed (the first two moves), and once because the shop president moved accounts (this move). Whether you've come here to order, apply, or just to window shop, we're sure you'll find what you're looking for at The Emerald 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. A discussion will take place in the shop studio.
  3. If the shop reaches an agreement during the discussion, the suggestion will not be voted on. If not, the suggestion will be voted on.
  4. If it gets enough support (a majority of voters/discussers), the suggestion will be implemented.

Activity Checks
Activity checks will be held at random, usually every three to six weeks. The Chairman will call the check and keep track of who has responded, but the President or Vice-Chairman will do it if the Chairman can't or doesn't. You will have one week to respond to these activity checks. You will not be notified in the event of an activity check, as the purpose of activity checks is to find out who checks the shop regularly on their own. If you do not respond, you get one strike. It takes two strikes for a trainee to be fired and three strikes for a full member to be fired. 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
Note: If a customer says that they aren't following the thread, they must be notified on their profile. If their profile comments are turned off, comment on one of their projects. If they don't have any projects, that's on them.

Leaves of Absence
To be on leave from The Emerald Shop temporarily, fill out the absence form. While on leave, you cannot receive activity strikes or be fired from the shop. You will not be notified when your time of being on leave is over, and you will then be able to receive strikes or get fired from the shop.
Note: You don’t need to be excused unless it’s 3-4 days or more.

Trainees
All new members will join as trainees unless they fulfill these requirements:
  • They've worked here before
  • They have worked at another shop (including owning a shop) for 3 weeks.
To be promoted to a full member, they must do at least one of the following:
  • Complete 5 orders
  • Respond to 2 activity checks
  • Get promoted by a BoD vote
  • Join the BoD
See the bottom of the FAQs for more info on trainees.

Customer FAQs
  • What is a shop?
    A shop is a place where any Scratcher can come, place an order, and get it done completely for free!
  • What's an order?
    An order is a request for something (like art, scripting, or a review) that a worker then “takes” (or “claims”) and completes for you! For example, if I ordered a piece of art, a worker would “take” (or “claim”) my order, draw the art for me, and then give me a link to the artwork!
  • How do I order?
    Go to our list of forms, copy the text for the order form, paste it into the “new reply” box at the bottom of the page, and fill it out! When you're done, simply press “submit” to post your order, and one of our workers will take it soon.
  • What kinds of orders do you accept?
    The services we provide are art, scripting, music, writing, ideas, animations, reviews, sound, advertising, voice acting, GIFs, BBCode, signatures, pen, and memes, though we can usually do anything a customer asks for.
  • What if no one takes my order?
    If no one takes your order, don't worry! It should show up on the Unclaimed Orders Center soon, and a worker will take it eventually.
  • What is the Unclaimed Orders Center?
    The Unclaimed Orders Center (Also called the Orders Center or the UOC) is a collection of all of the orders that haven't been claimed. This center is maintained by the Secretaries and usually updated at least once a day.
  • My order is overdue. What do I do?
    If your order is overdue, first of all, we're sorry. We may have a lot of workers, but not all of us are active at once and the people who are good at what you ordered might not be active when you order it. Also, your order might be above the skill level of most of our workers. You can bump (repost) your order if it's overdue, but please don't spam. It should be claimed soon after you bump it. If not, we can always direct you to some other shops that can get your order done!
  • What does “bump” mean?
    “Bump” stands for Bring Up My Post. When you “bump” an order, it shows up on the most recent page of the shop and more workers will see it. If we “bump” the shop, we're just bringing it to the front page of the “Requests” forum so that more people see it.
  • How do I review your work?
    Head on up to the list of forms again, copy and paste the worker review form into the “new reply” box, and fill that out! I read (and save) all worker reviews, and they're greatly appreciated.
  • What if I'm not satisfied?
    If you're not satisfied with your order, you can always ask the worker who did your order to change it! If they're unable to change it to your liking, you can always order again and a new worker will complete your order.
  • Do I have to pay?
    No, you don't have to pay for anything at our shop! It's all free, no loves, favorites, or follows are required. We just ask that you give credit to the shop and the worker who completed your order if you end up using it somewhere.

Worker FAQs
  • How do I apply?
    Go to the list of forms, copy and paste the application form into a new reply, and fill it out! If you meet all of the requirements, you'll be accepted as a trainee (see the trainee FAQs below).
  • Why wasn't I accepted?
    If you weren't accepted, it's probably because you forgot the codeword. The codeword is somewhere on the front page, you'll have to read it all and find it! Usually, if your application is missing the codeword, someone will reply to your post saying “You're missing something”, or something along those lines.
  • Do I need to join a studio?
    Yes, all workers at our shop (trainees and full members) must curate the shop studio. If you don't get an invitation after joining, leave a comment asking to be invited!
  • What do I need to do as an employee?
    Employees must take orders, respond to activity checks, and participate in discussions and votes.
  • Can employees place orders?
    Yes, employees can place orders! Feel free to order from this shop whenever you'd like.
  • How do I take orders?
    When a customer places an order, you can quote their post (using the blue “Quote” button at the bottom of their post) and say “Taken!” “Claimed!”, or something along those lines. Then, you have to complete their order and notify them once it's done. You can also look through the Unclaimed Orders Center to find orders that haven't been taken yet.
  • What is the Unclaimed Orders Center?
    The Unclaimed Orders Center (Also called the Orders Center or the UOC) is a collection of all of the orders that haven't been claimed. This center is maintained by the Secretaries and usually updated at least once a day.
  • Where do I find the unclaimed orders?
    There's a hyperlink to the Unclaimed Orders Center at the top of every post on the front page.
  • How do I tell a customer their order is done?
    If they said that they're following this thread (in their order form), then you can simply leave a post saying that their order is done with the completed product attached. If they're not following the thread, check their order form to see where they asked to be notified. For example, if they asked to be notified on their profile, leave a comment on their profile with a link to the product.
  • How do I upload orders?
    If they ordered a sprite, coding, or something that they requested in a project, then create it in a project. If they wanted an image, I suggest uploading the image using cubeupload.com or another whitelisted image host.
  • What is an activity check?
    They're explained in more detail here, but activity checks are held periodically (about once a month) to check on who's active. If you don't respond to an activity check in time, you'll receive a strike.
  • How do I respond to an activity check?
    You respond to activity checks by leaving a comment on the shop studio saying that you're active. All you need to say is “Active”, but people have come up with some creative ways of responding. (“Deadn't”, “I'm not active and you don't see this comment”, “Am I active? You tell me.”) As long as it's obviously a response to the check (and it's Scratch-appropriate!), you can basically say anything.
  • What are strikes?
    Strikes are given out if you do not respond to an activity check or you go against the terms. If a worker collects three strikes, they'll be fired from the shop. If you're a trainee, you'll be fired after only two strikes (this is to make sure that all of our trainees are dedicated and active members of the shop before we promote them).
  • What does “BoD” mean?
    “BoD” stands for “Board of Directors”. Most people in shops shorten it to BoD because it's shorter to type.
  • What is the Board of Directors?
    The Board of Directors is the shop's leadership. It's comprised of the President, the two Vice Presidents (1VP and 2VP), the Chairman, the Vice Chairman, the Public Relations Officer (PR, PR Officer, or PRO), the Secretary, and the Assistant Secretary. These people run the shop and make sure everything goes smoothly. They each have different duties, as described here.
  • How do I get on the Board of Directors?
    If a member of the BoD is fired, demoted, or leaves the shop, then their position will be vacant. Soon after they leave, the President or a VP will open applications for that position. Any member of the shop, even trainees, can apply for the position using the BoD Application Form on the front page. Once applications close, the BoD will decide who they want to promote to the open position.
  • Can non-BoD members suggest things?
    Yes, any member of the shop can make a suggestion, even trainees! Whether or not you're on the BoD, your suggestion will need two other BoD members to support it before it's discussed or voted on.
  • How do I go on leave/get excused?
    There's a more detailed explanation here, but basically, you just fill out the Absence Form.

Trainee FAQs
  • Why am I a trainee?
    As of now, all new members join as trainees. This is to make sure that all of our members know how to be good members of a shop before they become full members.
  • Can trainees take orders?
    Yes, trainees can (and should) take orders! This is an important part of gaining shop experience.
  • Can trainees vote?
    No, trainees cannot vote.
  • How do I become a full member?
    Once you respond to three activity checks, you can become a full member!

✔✳✅ THE EMERALD SHOP 4.0 ✔✳✅ Quality orders done by friendly, reliable, and professional staff! ✅✳✔ NOW OPEN ✅✳✔


This shop was founded on the 20th of May 2016 by @-raspberry_.

1.0 History
We joined the shop federation, which later closed. We soon grew to 19 members and remained active until April 2017, when we became very inactive. However, in February 2018 we became active again before 13 of our members became inactive and we dwindled to 6 members. We joined the USS and started getting a good few orders, most of which we completed. Within a few months, we grew to 12 members, and @-raspberry_'s new account @FloatingMuffins took over the shop.
In June 2018, we introduced elections for our USS reps and simplified our shop structure. We soon joined the SPA and entered a partnership with Toadcode’s Music Shop and T.I.P.S. In October of 2018, we were awarded a certificate for “Most Employees in a Shop”.

2.0 History
Due to FloatingMuffins' inactivity starting in late October, the Vice Presidents (@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 the presidency of the shop. She then moved it to yet another thread on February 13th of 2019 with 29 members.

3.0 History
The shop remained mostly 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. However, 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. This rocky period lasted until around October, but we always had a good few active members and were able to keep our position as one of the largest shops on Scratch.
After dwindling to less than 20 members in September 2019, we rose back up to 25 in October. The creator of the shop, @FloatingMuffins, even rejoined the shop. At the beginning of December 2019, the shop became very active. We gained many new members, and some old members rejoined the shop. We began getting more orders and completed most of these.
Starting at the end of December 2019 and going until the end of January 2020, the shop went through some big changes. In December, we abolished departments completely, letting all members and trainees take orders from all departments. We also changed and added some terms, requirements for joining, and BoD positions.
Around February 2020, we began to have a problem with spamming and off-topic posts, so Pie and Muffins began giving out strikes for spamming to deal with the problem. We also had our first real BoD meeting and shuffled around positions on the BoD a lot due to workers leaving and becoming inactive.
February also marked multiple milestones for the shop. We finally reached 0 orders on the UOC after months (years, even) of always having orders piled up. Not all orders were finished, but they were at least being worked on. February 13th was the official 1-year anniversary of The Emerald Shop 3.0.
At the end of March, Pie made the decision to move accounts, and members of the shop said that we should move to a new forum topic as well. On March 29th, we created a topic in the Collaborations forum to work on the move to 4.0. For over a month, we planned for the new forum; making banners, suggesting changes to the shop, and planning exactly when everything would happen. On May 1st, Pie, Muffins, TaterTime, mango38, and -DancerRJV- reserved their posts on the 4.0 thread, and on May 7th, we officially opened The Emerald Shop 4.0.

You're right! This is open! Your order will be added to the UOC shortly. If it takes longer than usual, not to worry, we just need to wait for staff to notice the announcement
