Can you get a download?
You can test the alpha here, and if you want to download it for some reason, just right click here and select “save link as…” in the right click menu. (But version 0.8 should be coming out tomorrow, so stand by for that!)

Yes, sure! What exactly are you suggesting I add? Is this a bit like sending from one project and receiving in another?
Yeah, something like that. Just basic networking capabilities and at the moment, I don't think you should worry about directly connecting from project to project starting out (those of us with the technical know how will figure out connecting projects together through other methods ), but maybe later that will be a possibility.

[connect “ip:port”], [disconnect], [send “data”], [hat when I receive data (x)] <– puts the data received into the variable x (or any defined one, like in the for each block), (connection status) (would return a string like “connected”, “not connected”, "error: ").

Does that make sense?
I've been looking further into websockets, and hopefully I will implement them in version 1.0β. Also coming might be cookie variables.

And another note. I'm NOTTTTTT going to name anyone when I say this, but I am not a fan of the idea that you HAVE to make your content so kid friendly it comes off as catering to babies. I feel that young children inherently like the idea of growing up, and understanding more complex ways of thinking that are introduced to them in a simple manner. I know this because I remember being a very young kid, having little control, and wanting to just grow up. I might be getting too philosophical with this, but the point is I don't feel the need to take the easy road, and make loud obnoxious content where I'm yelling a lot and not really being insightful at all. And it became pretty clear that whenever I did anything like that (since I get obnoxious and loud in group recordings naturally) that people didn't enjoy it. But people enjoy this, and I enjoy this. I now make content I'm proud of. I look back to each and every new video, and think “wow, that's really good, I'm proud of that piece of work”. And the fact that I can do that every day now is a new feeling for me. - AntVenom

The following blocks don't seem to work though:
[toggle v] turbo mode :: operators // Does nothing

[fullscreen v] mode :: operators // Set's it to small stage..?

Cheers! I'll see about making something that you can use to demo them.

You should make the inactive tabs (Scripts / Backdrops / Costumes / Sounds) have white text (or at least a lighter grey) instead of grey, which is hard to read. I had a quick attempt at doing it myself, but it made the background colour look strange.

Yes!!! I know, I accidentally messed up the color when I was first making Blue! It's already fixed in 0.9, which should be coming out later today or tomorrow, GMT+10. Sorry about that!

Are you guys able to save your projects? The flash player always crashes when I try to.

Hmm, I just tried recreating my project one block at a time and saving after each minor change and it didn't crash. So I don't know.

Maybe it's just how your computer is set up… If you keep geting the problem, you could just download the latest versions as they come out (from here), but some features coming require it to be online. You could still program everything though.
