Welcome to the official discussion topic of the United Shops of Scratch (the USS), which is a network of around 9 shops as of August 30, 2020. The USS offers shop assistance in endorsement, order completion, marketing/promotion, and representation.

The USS is open to partnerships, which follow the line of “if one union fails, one will support the other.”

The USS is lead by the Head Department (acting as an Executive branch), but it is not an absolute dictatorship. Permanent leaders GrahamSH and 78ch3 hold the Owner and Co-Owner ranks.

◄ Main Menu
USS Constitution:

1. Membership Agreements
1.1. Shop Membership Agreement
1.1.1. All shops must abide by these rules.
1.1.2. Your shop will use the representative system.
1.1.2. a. A one-person shop gets 1 representative seat
1.1.2. b. Shops with 2 or more people start with 2 seats, and gain one for every additional 4 members.
1.1.2. c. Federations start with 1 seat, and gain one for every 4 shops they have.
1.1.2. d. 1 person may occupy more than one seat.
1.1.3. Your shop may be removed if it breaks either the USS rules or the Community Guidelines.
1.1.4. You accept all of our rules, 100%. If you disagree with anything, contact us instead of applying, and we'll explain and sort it out. If you heavily oppose, then don't apply.
1.1.5. You accept that your shop will be submitted to the Shop Directory unless otherwise noted in the application. We do weekly sweeps on Sundays.
1.1.6. You acknowledge that these rules may be altered at any time, and we trust you to frequently check them.
1.2. Worker Agreement
1.2.1. You will abide by all of these rules.
1.2.2. You will abide by all Community Guidelines.
1.2.3. If you do not agree with all of these rules completely, either do not apply or contact GrahamSH or a representative of the USS.
1.2.4. You will complete your job.
1.3. Your membership as an individual or a group may be revoked for breaking rules.
2. Powers
2.1. As a representative of any shop, you may propose a law. Here is the complete process:
2.1.1. Firstly, propose it to your shop and get 50% (or more) support.
2.1.2. Secondly, go to this topic and propose it, noting that it has gained that required support.
2.1.3. Thirdly, gain support from three other representatives, which cannot be part of the same shop.
2.1.4. Finally, a USS-wide vote will occur among representatives and head department members, in which the vote decides its approval.
2.1.5. Shall a tie occur, GrahamSH will automatically be called in to decide the tie-breaker.
2.2. As a Head Department member, you have the powers to do the following:
2.2.1. You may pass laws if you are an owner or co-owner without representative approval, however, it may be reversed if found unconstitutional (refer to section 3.)
2.2.2. You may approve applications of any type.
2.2.3. You may call in meetings and hearings.
2.3. As a USS citizen, including a Head Department member, a representative, a shop owner, or a moderator, you may complain about illegal practices including the unconstitutionality of a passed law. You may either;
2.3.1. File a lawsuit about an illegal practice, by messaging on GrahamSH’s profile. If it is inappropriate to the CG, then report appropriately instead.
2.3.2. File a lawsuit about an unconstitutional law, by noting it on this topic.
2.3.3. These processes are explained in section 3.
3. Lawsuits & Unconstitutionality Claims
3.1. Lawsuits
3.1.1. Firstly, a citizen of the USS may complain about an illegal practice by messaging GrahamSH’s profile. If it is inappropriate to the CG, report appropriately instead.
3.1.2. GrahamSH will review the scenario, and determine if it is enough to require a lawsuit. If not, then the lawsuit stops here.
3.1.3. If so, then GrahamSH will call in a lawsuit, and have a court case. The head department will consider the scenario with PARTIAL involvement of the public. There is no jury, but any person can influence a head department member’s decision.
3.1.4. The vote among members will determine the result.
3.2. Unconstitutionality Lawsuits/Claims
3.2.1. Firstly, a citizen of the USS may complain about an unconstitutional law by messaging GrahamSH’s profile. To determine if a law is appropriate/constitutional to the USS, read section 4.
3.2.2. GrahamSH will review the scenario, and determine if it is enough to require a lawsuit. If not, then the lawsuit stops here.
3.2.3. If so, then GrahamSH will call in a lawsuit, and have a court case. The head department members will consider the scenario, like in 3.1, only among themselves, with slight public influence. The default and only decisions possible that the members will vote upon are the following: legal - keep; illegal - remove; delay - delay the court case to a later time.
3.2.4. The outcome will decide if the law is kept.
4. Constitutionality of a Law
4.1. There are three basic principles to a constitutional law under the USS:
4.2. The law shall not restrict the power of anyone unreasonably.
4.3. The law shall not be too complicated, and rather simple unless the complication is needed.
4.4. The law shall be necessary for the USS in the current situation.
5. Hierarchy Regulation
5.1. Head department members should only complete decisions in court without any bias. If you complain about bias, please contact us immediately.
5.2. The owner/co-owner shall not overrule without the consent of the Head Department.
6. Basic Rules
6.1. Have fun.
6.2. Respect each other.
6.3. Do not be rude to anyone inside or outside of the federation.
6.4. You acknowledge that these rules may be expanded or modified in the future. (8.1.)
7. CubeUpload
7.1 It is encouraged not to use CubeUpload, to provide a better experience to your customers.
7.2 All banners hosted with CubeUpload will be converted to Scratch hosting.
8. Events not described here
8.1 Any events not described here which may occur and require proper addressing, will be added here.
8.2 If you have read all these laws, in your application, say “I agree to all USS terms, conditions, and laws”

◄ Main Menu
You want to join the USS? Great! Here's how to join if you are a shop.
If you wish to join as a worker, click here.
If you wish to partner your federation, click here.

Part 1: Reading the laws
The first step to joining the USS is to read the laws! Don't worry, they're not too long. You can find them here.

Part 2: Application Form
Once you've done that, fill out this form. To do so, copy the form below, and paste it with your answers.

Shop name:
Shop link:
Shop banner:
Shop banner link*:
Shop description(2 sentences max):
Shop products**:
Shop member amount:
Shop owner:
If you are not owner, do you have permission?
Do you agree to the laws:
Is your shop currently in the shop directory?

*Your banner will be converted to being hosted with scratch if it is hosted with cubeupload so it will not go down **If you are a general or everything shop, simply put “everything”

Part 3: Choosing your representatives

Now, you have to pick who you want to represent your shop. Make a list of who you trust to represent the ideas of your shop. Depending on how large your shop is, you will get a different amount of representative seats. If you don't have enough people to fill all of your seats, you can either pick more people, or select somebody, most likely the owner or another high ranking individual, to take the remaining seats. If you post too long a list, the additional people will be added as backups.

When you've made your list, post it with your application.

Part 4: ISOC and contributing a service
Now for the final part of the application process. These are a few optional things that you can enroll in to help improve your shop. As more become available, you can find them in the Perks section, which can be found here. Right now we're only offering one, ISOC. ISOC stands for Inter-Shop Order Completion. It is a service that allows you to send your order to another shop if you are unable to complete it. Here's how to use it:
1. Your shop gets an order that you can't complete.
2. You go to the ISOC page, and fill out a form.
3. Your order will be shown to other shops enrolled in ISOC that also complete those types of orders.
4. A shop does the order.
5. It is given to your shop to give to the customer!

To enroll, at the end of your application put:
My shop would like to enroll in ISOC. We will send an order to ISOC if we cannot do it, and complete an order from ISOC if we are able to.

Now, one last thing. If you would like to offer a perk, such as reviewing shops, or making complimentary banners, etc. you can apply for it here. This will give your shop more experience, and more orders, to help grow your shop. Here is the application if you wish to add a perk:
Perk:
More in depth description:
Any eligibility requirements?
Instructions on how to redeem the perk:

Now, post your application with any other forms and lists attached to it, then all you have to do is wait for GrahamSH or another Head Department Member to accept your shop. While you're waiting, you could get to know the leaders of the USS by looking at the staff page!

Frequently Asked Questions


What are representatives?
Representatives are people who represent your shop or subsidiary that are appointed by the owner or whoever is in charge, that participate in votes that determine laws that apply to your shop/federation.

Representatives can be anyone, however, they must be part of your shop, and not a retired member.

Shops with 2 members or more start out with 2 representatives and get 1 additional one for every 2 additional members. 1 person shops get 1 representative seat. Those representatives cannot be representatives of other shops. Federation partners get 1 representative, plus an additional 1 for every 4 shops.

I'm bored. What can I do?
If you are not a member of the USS, you can…

…apply to become a moderator.
…have your shop join the USS.
…have your federation join the USS.

If you are a current member and…

…a shop owner, ensure everything is up-to-date for your shop in the member list.
…a shop representative, wait until a vote is enacted or suggest a change to the USS.
…a shop member, there isn't much to do.
…a federation owner, ensure everything is up-to-date for your subsidiary in the subsidiary list.
…a federation representative, wait until a vote is enacted or suggest a change to the USS.
…a moderator, complete a task if there is one ongoing. Otherwise, help keep your shops active and ensure everything is updated.

As another shop federation, can we partner?
We are wide open to partnerships as shop federations, and we function with our basic promise in our partnership:
We will not attempt to argue/ruin any of your shop federation's reputation, in return for the same. In addition, shall your shop federation collapse/fail, we will help - and we expect the same also.

This partnership may be terminated at any point by any party. Finally, if you wish to merge into the USS, we will welcome that.
While we do accept mergers, we have not had one happen before. There may be difficulties with transitioning into our odd format, but in general shops under the acquisition federation will be auto-enrolled in the USS.

Can I opt out of the USS/not receive messages/etc.?
Of course you may. We do not force our members to stay tied with us, but we encourage them to stay.

If you wish to quit the USS, there is no form or penalty for doing so. Please, however, let us know immediately so your representatives, banners, and other information concerning your shop will be removed/adjusted.

If you do not wish to have notifications from moderators or messengers from the USS, please simply let us know. Like quitting, there is no form, but we do ask for you to kindly ask us.

My application has not been answered. What can I do?
Applications are most likely acknowledged, but responses may take up to three days. If you do not receive a response within three days, then re-post it.

What is the inter-shop old order completion (ISOOC) program?
It was a program that allows anyone under the USS to complete untaken orders from other shops. These untaken orders must be at least 3 days old.

I have a system that accepts orders but forwards them to shops under our system. Would this be a shop or organization?
These are treated as organizations.

As of May 22, 2017, shops are officially defined by the USS as a system that “completes its orders by itself.”

The History of the USS


◄ Main Menu

I: Start
Early Days
On October 13, 2016, The Shop Federation (TSF) closed. TSF was a large inspiration for the USS, structure, and concept-wise. The collapse and closure of TSF resulted in the creation of numerous smaller unions, some small and some large. The USS remained as a medium-sized union until around 2017, when the USS began gaining speedy momentum.

Austinato launched the idea of the USS, meeting with experienced shop member monkeytooper, and forming the USS (on this same topic) on October 27, 2016. The first member was Austinato's SmartShop, a smaller shop that closed within months and serves as the indirect predecessor to Austinato's Art Market. Two other founding shops, TacoCatProuductions' Magical Market and Perfection Graphics exist, with Perfection Graphics being removed in 2017 alongside SmartShop. These two shop's closures left TacoCatProuductions' shop as the remaining “founding shop.” As expected, TacoCatProuductions' Magical Market was removed during the activity check of early 2018.

Failed Merger
Within weeks of the USS's founding, leader Austinato pushed for a merger with the Scratch Union (to retain the USS name), which was owned by Monkey_Legend, another TSF member. An hour of debating followed the announcement of an aimed merger, where talks resulted in the first partnership of USS history.

While the USS did not acquire or merge with the SU, the concept of shop-collaboration cooperation was later incorporated into the USS through the establishment of subsidiaries, which to this day, have not surpassed the count of five total. The USS also formed a new motto for partnerships which is only one sentence long; “if a shop begins to fail, the other will support the failing one.”

Slower Expansion
The USS continued to experience slow expansion up until March 2017, where the USS quickly gained members and subsidiaries, helping the USS reach its 50 shops and five subsidiary count.

II: Expansion
This section will be finished in the future.

III: Reform
This section will be finished in the future.

IV: Growth Maximum
The USS reached an eventful point in the month of June 2017. On June 2, the USS Base (an attempted statistics system) released its first findings. On June 15, the former watcher position was filled. On June 19, the limit of 50 shops and five subsidiaries was introduced, in which the 50 shop limit was met three days later.

A restructuring on July 17, 2017, resulted in the establishment of the President position, in which -Anvard- won on August 1, 2017. He took an oath and officially took his position the following day.

Austinato became inactive from around September 2017 to February 2018. He returned, starting the reconstruction and redesign of the USS on February 27, 2018.

V: Reform of 2018
When USS Main Owner Austinato returned from five-month inactivity, he enacted a large activity check and planned out the simplification of the USS, to allow it to work more easily and productively. The activity check ended on March 6, removing around 70% of shops and clearing many inactive users out of their positions. Two users, BGMead and -Anvard-, were exempted from the activity check, and since they hold important positions, have until March 14, 2018, to mark themselves as active.

Simplification began on March 7 and 8 when positions were re-aligned and re-focused. Subsidiaries were renamed to organizations. Applications were re-opened. On March 9, Austinato disbanded ISOOC, an inter-shop order completing program. He also later re-enacted USS BASE and scheduled an event in summer.

The USS Guidelines were created alongside the establishment of a special election from March 19 to March 26, 2018 (later postponed to the first week of April.) The vote resulted in a tie, and a tiebreaker was scheduled for April 25 to May 2, 2018. The acting President and VP won and secured a term until June/July 2018.

On July 11, Austinato founded a small group named the "Special Interests Group of the USS for Reform", where a select group of people discussed programs that the USS can introduce to revive membership. On July 26, ideas set forward by the group were posted. Two days later, the studio was transformed into a workspace for those who are interested in the new programs.

Transfering Ownership
On October 5, Austinato announced that they would be resigning from the co-founder/co-owner position. Austinato hosted a major vote, which would be deciding what would become of the USS in the future. Three people, MasterOfTheTiger, FollowCherryBlossom, -XxX-MEOW-XxX- decided to run for new ownership. On October 15, the vote ended. Everybody who chose to vote voted that a new co-leader gets elected. On October 27, the vote ended and -XxX-MEOW-XxX- won.

VI: The New USS
-XxX-MEOW-XxX-, new owner, and his co-owner monkeytrooper officially took over on November 1, 2018. Sadly, both -XxX-MEOW-XxX- and monkeytrooper fell into inactivity, with the latter not posting anything in nearly a year. -XxX-MEOW-XxX-, starting to “walk away” from scratch and move to social media sites such as YouTube, decided to hand ownership over again.

New Ownership
This time, Panda_Gamer1212, AFNNetworkK12, NYCDOT, and MClovers decided to run. On July 31, 2019, it was certain. NYCDOT was the new owner.

Fast Forward: The Plan to Modernize the United Shops of Scratch
On August 2, 2019, NYCDOT announced that the reorganizing of shops, organizations, employees, topic organization, and a complete redrawing of the constitution would be called “Fast Forward: The Plan to Modernize the United Shops of Scratch.” In this plan, shops and organizations would be given more power, the new topic would be formatted differently from the old topic for better use, and the constitution would be re-written.

VII: The return of the USS
On August 11, 2020, GrahamSH decided that it was time for the USS to come back. He made a topic and reserved several posts for later. He decided to announce this on NYCDOT's old topic. It immediately gained interest with lots of forum veterans including FloatingMuffins, 78ch3, and FollowCherryBlossom involved in the project. They started to make a plan and on Friday, August 28th, the new USS opened.
