True, I just welcomed a new Scratcher from China. What I believe is that they shouldn't ban a coding site just because the leaders can't get along…

Yep, the actual numbers of people from China are about 20k -30k but that's still a lot of people being banned.

Well, the link is still in the Scratch domain, so probably not.

There are probably some good alternatives like Kano, althlugh some of it is aimed at younger kids.

Watching the video, I see that they keep pointing at “Hong Kong and Taiwan are not listed as merged into China”, so maybe we may have to do a few things to unban scratch.

To answer the OP's question, yes, there should be an announcement regarding this.

The problem goes beyond that. They also pointed at a project where there was a map of China with no Taiwan.

I think that's already been a thing. At registration it might be a bit different.

that's the community though, I think the only thing they found wrong with the Scratch software itself was that.
