Your Questions about Scratch 2.0

Welcome to Scratch 2.0! Make yourself at home.

What are the new features in Scratch 2.0?
This page gives an overview of the new features.

How often will the Scratch Team update Scratch 2.0 with fixes and features?
We'll release updates and fixes at least once a week for a while - and sometimes more often than that. Look for announcements about these updates in the Announcements forum.

Did everything from the old Scratch website get brought to the new site?
Projects, comments, galleries, profile icons, favorites, love its - basically, almost everything on the old site - were imported to Scratch 2.0. The one thing we didn't bring was all the tags. (Scratch 2.0 only shows 3 tags – chosen by the author – per project.)

Did everything from the Scratch 2.0 Beta make it onto Scratch 2.0?
Although at first we thought we could only keep projects from the Scratch 2.0 beta, we were also able to keep love its, project comments, studios, studio comments, and profile comments. We were not able to keep favorites, views, profile page sections (About Me, What I'm Working On), or messages from the beta.

Why did my project title change?
If you had a project that was on both the old site and the beta site, the title came from the old site. So you may need to update your project title.

Will there ever be a downloadable Scratch 2.0 editor?
Yep! But it won't be ready until this summer. If you'd like to help beta test it, we'll post an announcement when it's ready to try out.

What does it mean to Follow someone?
If you click the Follow button on a Scratcher’s profile, you then receive updates about their projects and other Scratch activities in your home page “What's Happening” section.

Why did it change from Friends to Followers?
When we first released the Scratch website in 2007, the concept of “Friending” wasn’t completely figured out. With the rise of Facebook and social networking sites, “Friending” now means that both people have agreed to a connection, whereas “Following” is when one person decides they want to receive public updates about the other. Since this is how “Friends” have always worked on Scratch, we decided to change the name to “Following” to avoid confusing new users.

Why change the name of “Galleries” to “Studios”?
On the old Scratch website, we were excited to realize that Scratchers used galleries for lots of different purposes - not just for showing projects, but for role-playing games and collabs, to name a few. We decided a more general name would be a better fit. We plan to keep working on the design of studios.

Why do projects imported from the old site have more views on the new site?
On the old site, we only counted a single view for each location used to view the project. Many schools and libraries set up their networks in a way that makes it look like all their users are coming from a single location. So if 1000 kids in a school (or school district) viewed your project, it counted as 1 view. The view count shown on the new site is a re-calcuation of old data, and is a more accurate measure of views.

Will posts from the old Scratch forums be brought to the new Scratch forums?
No - many if not most of those posts are outdated. But they will still be visible on a read-only copy of the old forums. The layout of the various forums will be pretty much the same after the release.

Can we still make projects with Scratch 1.4, and share them to this website?
Certainly! Just click share in Scratch 1.4 - they'll get uploaded to this website.

When will Scratch 2.0 be translated into more languages?
There's still lots of work to be done translating Scratch 2.0. Look for updates in the near future! If you'd like to help translate, check out this wiki page.

Can I download Scratch 2.0 projects and open in them in Scratch 1.4?
Sadly, it's not possible for us to make this work without a time machine. Scratch 1.4 was created in 2009, and doesn't know how to read the new Scratch 2.0 file format, which was made in 2012.

Where are the messages I got during the beta?
We moved all messages from the Scratch 1.4 website to Scratch 2.0. However, we did not keep messages you received in the Scratch 2.0 Beta website.

Keep in mind that there will still be bugs and glitches to be ironed out, and new features soon to be added (gradients in the paint editor, for one!) If you find a glitch (which wouldn't be too surprising, considering that this code is really fresh), please post in the Bugs and Glitches forum to let us know!

If you have additional questions, post them here!

Awesome job on getting it released! Where are the read-only forums, though?

If you had a project that was on both the old site and the beta site, the title came from the old site. So you may need to update your project title.

If you have additional questions, post them here!

1. So…. now it seems that every project I made on the beta site has 2 views. Why has all the projects the same amout of views?

2. Ok…. so that's why my projects seems to be renamed….

3. It seems that the projects aren't in the same order. It stands on one of my projects: “Updated 5 days ago” but the latest time I updated it was for like a month ago. And on another project it stands: “Updated 1 month ago” even if I updated it for only a few days ago…. Why did this happen?

Speaking of the change of the name of galleries to studios, the URL for studios still contains the word, “galleries.” Whoops!

Thanks for the ride, Scratch Team and community! Unfortunately, the time has come for me to move on from Scratch, so I'll no longer be using the forums. Thanks again, and farewell!
Invisible text! This will show you if a profile I claim to be mine IS mine. Just remember to visit the profile and see if I confirmed in the comments.
For old time's sake, see the revolutionary Laser Battle 2.0! Also see Unstoppable Game!

And no, the evil kumquats didn't alter my signature…

At the bottom of the forum page, press the button that says something along the lines of “Update your signature”.

Looks like all our activity wasn't deleted. Honestly, that was a big disappointment

It's called “Change your signature” and not “Update your signature”. You can find it by clicking discuss and then go down until you find
