GalacticaOS Collaboration

Home
Welcome to GalacticaOS, where we work hard and have fun to create the best OS Scratch has ever seen! Everyone is welcome to join, even New Scratchers, if they can prove that they have atleast a month of Scratch experience on atleast one of their accounts - but there are other factors which determine whether a person will be accepted or not, of course! GalacticaOS is supposed to have a lot of cool features, and everybody, even amateur coders, can contribute in atleast 1 way (Read the details & rules for more info)! Here, we like to have fun as we work!
All members of the GalacticaOS Team will be given credit in the final project - and remember, all members will be treated equally in the collab, and everybody's opinion will be heard. There will be a manager (me) and heads for every department, of course, but everybody will have a say, and every vote will count - that's right, we'll all be voting! But only the manager will have the power to hire (firing will be a rare circumstance). Some of the features of GalacticaOS will be a scripting language, a block-based programming language, calender with events, and more! You can find the current trailer here. Please note that the trailer was created in a time when GalacticaOS was not a collab - I turned it into a collab because the release date seemed impossible to keep up with (15th August 2020). And yes, the team will be making a new trailer.
Anyways, I'd be glad to have you in the collaboration! Apply today, if applications are open!
Use the links at the top to navigate through the topic!
Have a nice day!

GalacticaOS Collaboration
About
GalacticaOS is a collaboration for making the best OS Scratch has ever seen. It didn't start out as a collab, of course. In November 2019, I (@wolfgirl152312) started making OwlOS (now deleted) for a coding contest, but procrastinated to the point that I had to make half of the stuff on the day before the deadline, so it didn't turn out pretty good. So, in March 2020, I started working on (and released, but later deleted) GalacticaOS v.1.0, and planned on updating it a little bit everyday, but it only reached version 1.1, which is, yes, pretty bad, so I deleted it and decided to work on it later. Then a month later, I released the trailer, just for promoting the OS, without showcasing any of the features, and it's still up - find it here.. But then another month later, the release date (August 15, 2020) seemed a little too hard to keep up with. So, after much thought, I turned GalacticaOS into this collab! Then now, I've extended the release date to the 1st of January, 2021!

So, now, I'm going to tell you a little more about GalacticaOS, since nobody's going to join a collab without knowing all the details. But, I strongly advise you to check out the details section. If you are considering applying, then you must read the rules. But I am going to say that it will be better to read all the important pages of the thread. Use the main menu to navigate!

Anyways, first of all, let me warn you that GalacticaOS will be hard to make. There will have to be artists, animators, coders, and more, and there will be heads for every department. But the heads are just there for making things easier. Everybody here is equal. But the manager will be the one sharing the final project, and will also be the only one to hire & fire. All leave applications will be accepted, as long as there aren't any way too frequent leaves to important meetings.

GalacticaOS is supposed to be better than any other OS, and, even though I have a lot of ideas, more ideas will be better. We will need to make a block-based programming language inside of the OS, among other things, so don't expect anything to be easy.
But something I have to say is that even if you are not really good at your chosen field, there is a chance that you will be hired. I believe that everybody has something great to contribute.

Now, if you really want to apply, but you feel like you lack enough skills, then don't be shy and give it a try! Remember, every small effort counts! We like to keep things nice and friendly here!
GalacticaOS is sure to be wonderful with all the skills you have to offer. Apply now! But make sure that applications are open if you are considering applying, it's written in the title - if they're not, drop a comment at my profile if you'd like to be notified when they reopen!

Forms
Considering applying? Thanks! Make sure you have read all the important pages first, though! Now, here's an important thing - if you apply for a certain job, but the amount of skill you have in it is low, then there's a possibility of one of many things happening - either, you'll get the job (yay!), or, you'll be given minor things to do related to your job, or you'll be given an entirely different job (wow), or, you'll be given one of the ‘special’ jobs (ideas, advertising, etc.), or you'll be rejected (I hope that doesn't happen). And, another important thing - remember what I said about the amount of skill you have not being an important part of applying? Well, it's different in some jobs, like head jobs. Anyways, I seem to have included a lot of the rules section here already - I just thought you ought to know these before applying. Good luck with your application! Just fill in the form Please note that head jobs are not available through the application.
What's your Scratch nickname, if you have one?
Which job would you like?
How skilled are you in your chosen job?
Can you please state how active you are?
Have you read the rules?

Are you busy? Can't attend an important meeting? No worries, just fill in this form! Your leave will always be accepted
When are you going to be on leave?
What will you miss out on?
And don't worry about missing out on stuff, one of our wonderful team members will tell you all about what happened while you were gone! Is it going to be a task you won't be there for? It's totally fine, there are lots of people to do it instead!

Are you bored with GalacticaOS? Do you not feel like working with us anymore? It's totally fine, you can always quit! The only condition is that you should have contributed at least 1 small thing to the OS before leaving. You will be given credit for what you did in the final OS, even if you left before it was completed!
Are you sure you want to quit?
What was your favourite/favorite memory from working here? Was it fun? Did you enjoy yourself?
What were your contributions to the OS?
What should be written in the description of the finished project (everybody's words will be shown there, along with the instructions and everything. Remember, we are all a part of this!)?
Goodbye! We will miss you! We hope that you go on to do great things on Scratch or maybe even IRL! As a confirmation of your resignation, please type out the words here: I, <username here>, wish to resign from The GalacticaOS Collaboration. From this moment onwards, I am officially a resigned member of the collab.

GalacticaOS Collaboration
Rules
Welcome to the wonderful Rules section! Be sure to read these carefully!
  1. Whenever you post something important or official, always add this to the top of the post:
    [quote][center][url=scratch.org/discuss/topic/401202]Home[/url] | [url=scratch.org/discuss/post/3991248]About[/url] | [url=scratch.org/discuss/post/3991254]Forms[/url] | [url=scratch.org/discuss/post/3991257]Rules[/url] | [url=scratch.org/discuss/post/3991590]The Team[/url] | [url=scratch.org/discuss/post/3991594]Open Positions[/url] | [url=scratch.org/discuss/post/3991660]To - Do[/url] | [url=scratch.org/discuss/post/3996580]Assignments[/url] | [url=scratch.org/discuss/post/3996584]Projects & Studios[/url][/center][/quote]
    Just copy-paste it! (Credit to @jettypumpkin07 for that new navigation bar)
  2. Always be nice and friendly!
  3. Don't steal somebody else's work.
  4. Don't lie about anything related to the Collab.
  5. Treat everyone equally. Heads are just for making things easier. Do not make fun of anyone, even if you're a head.
  6. Don't be sad, if your design/animation/code didn't win in a vote - by the end, you would've contributed a great deal to the collab!
  7. Don't take way too frequent leaves. Leaves are always accepted, but that might change if you keep doing it on important meetings. Of course, leaves will always be granted for important things IRL, no matter how frequent.
  8. Always speak up if you have something important to say.
  9. Please don't use your Head powers (if you're a head) for anything bad.
  10. Never try to prevent anybody from having a say. In this collab, everybody has a voice. Always.
  11. Head jobs are not available through application - this is not a rule, but something you have to know. Elections will be held for Head positions.
  12. If you apply for a certain job, but the amount of skill you have in it is low, then there's a possibility of one of many things happening - either, you'll get the job. Or, you'll be given minor things to do related to your job, or you'll be given an entirely different job! Or you'll be given one of the ‘special’ jobs (ideas, advertising, etc.), or, sadly, you'll be rejected (I hope that doesn't happen).
  13. If you break a rule, you'll get a rule strike. Once you have 3 rule strikes, you'll be asked to leave But you will still be given credit in the final project, and you'll still have a place in the description of it, like everyone else!
  14. If you don't reply to an activity check, you'll get an activity strike. Once you have 2 activity strikes, you'll be asked to leave But you will still be given credit in the final project, and you'll still have a place in the description of it, like everybody else!
  15. Now this is a new rule - include the codeword in your application - it has to be hidden in a sentence, by the way. The codeword is ‘cats’. You can also use related words such as “feline” and “kittens”.
  16. Please follow the thread after applying!
And that's it! Be sure to follow the rules

GalacticaOS Collaboration
Details
So you're probably wondering whether to apply or not. So I'll tell you how it's all gonna work. I'll start working on it by myself till I get more people. Then we'll all work together on it. I'll say how - one of the first things we're going to have to tackle is the beginning animations. For that, the animation team will either work together or will make animations separately and will later have a vote. To decide whether they'll work together (by remixing each other's projects) or whether they'll submit their entries alone, we'll have a discussion. So imagine that we decided that they'll work on the animations alone. They'll have a week to work on it, and it will be written under ‘Animation Team’ in the Assignments section and the task will be listed in the To-Do section. When the animators are done, all the projects will be added to their right studios and will be listed in the Projects & Studios section. The Head Animator will also have to make an animation, by the way. Anyways, after the week is done and the animations are complete, the Head Animator will have to organize a vote to decide the animations. All the members of the full GalacticaOS team will get to vote, by the way. And like that, everything will go on, we'll slowly but surely make every application in the OS. Interested? Apply now, if applications are open!

4. https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/382398971

Can you give a brief description of yourself (lol this is sounding more and more like a job interview)?:
I am from Bangladesh. I can speak bangla and english. I am against racism. I love to make good computer viruses that remove bad computer viruses in my freetime (It's a hobby). I am a fan of marshmello. I support anonymous. I want to be an ethical hacker and programmer in future. I am the student editor of my school magazine. I love to read e-books. I support white hat hackers. I love math and science. I might be young but that doesn't mean I'm the underdog. Age is just a number. All you need is skill and I believe that I have it. I'm better at hacking than programming.

Can you please state how active you are? Percentage or out of 10, or out of 100, you ask?

9 out of 10

I'm glad that you applied! Head jobs are not available through application, as I wrote in the forms section, but if you're accepted you can work as an Idea Master. Are you ready to be quizzed on the rules? I mentioned that you will be rejected if you fail to answer 30% or more of the questions. Please reply to this! After that, we will fix a time for the quiz (to prevent cheating) and then there will be the quiz. Remember, you need to pass the rules quiz to be accepted!
