Dating on Scratch

So I was wondering this because I've seen a lot of users on Scratch have girlfriends/boyfriends. I was wondering if that was even allowed because Scratch is directed at kids to learn, not to date.

I'm not sure it's allowed.

Dating on Scratch

I think you've mistaken dating with having a bf/gf. It's perfectly alright to have a boy/girlfriend that you know irl on scratch, but it isn't supposed to be used as a dating website. So as long as you don't use scratch to date, it's fine.

but I've seen some people set up ‘dates’ by making projects.

I've also seen people asking other users if they wanted to be together.

I just recently saw someone post a project about how another scratcher cheated on them! I am not sure how to react

Then you should report the project. If it involves unmoderated communication between various people, then it's not allowed.

Not allowed under any circumstances. Scratch is not a dating website/app. I've seen many people ip banned for breaking this rule.

Dating on Scratch

Dating is not allowed under any circumstances. Even if you are dating in real life I believe you are still not allowed to say you are.

aII toasters toast toast, but what happens when there are no longer toasters being produced? will their technology simply become obsolete, with humans moving onto bigger, better things? will toast become a distant memory, written in textbooks of the future as foods us simpler generations ate? who's to say! society is constantly moving, changing, evolving, ideas being built upon, improved upon, theories being proven or disproven. are we but a blip on the timeline? sure, our names may not be remembered, but that's not the point. you can make a change. you can make a difference. you can make the world better, even if you don't know yet. and the first step is to go for it. even if you are afraid of failure. going back to the example of toasters, do you know off the top of your head who invented them? no? have you used one? probably. so, even if you don't remember my name, if I was able to help awnser your question, that is enough. if I was able to help you, even in the slightest way, this could push you to continue with scratch and not give up after the program crashes, and maybe one day learn other programming languages and change the world. everything is a cause and effect reaction, new inventions lead to the technology of the future, and even as the generations of the past are slowly forgotten, their influence lives on to this day, affecting how the world eventually turned out and how it will be for generations to come.

and, without toasters, we wouldn't have toast.

I think I remember @Za-Chary saying in the past that if there were two older Scratchers who were married real life, it would be okay to say as long as it was clear that they genuinely were married, and not just pretending to be on Scratch. I'm not sure if this policy has changed, or if it applies to people who are actually dating, but it is something to consider.

Mmm, yeah, that's tough.

To be safe, I would just say that no dating of any type is allowed on Scratch. That's more or less what the policy is, as Scratch is not a dating website. Even if you really are dating in real life, it might be best not to say this on Scratch just so others don't see it and think dating is okay on Scratch.

I mean you shouldn't go advertising or boasting, adding to your profile, or saying “I'm dating @username !1!!!1!!”. That's not allowed. ily (I love you) or ilysm (I love you so much) is fine when not used as a dating.

I've seen joke wedding studios that are clearly a joke because the user was marrying their alt.

I disagree. If at least one user of this “ship” is uncomfortable with it, then it's not allowed because it's making someone uncomfortable. If both party members are fine with the proposed “ship,” then I would say that's not allowed because it sounds pretty much like two Scratchers dating. (And, again, dating is not allowed on Scratch.)

There was this kid named (removed by moderator - please don't name names), and he pretty much flirted with me. I instantly reported that guy
BELEIVE ME,The last thing i'd ever do is have a girlfriend (yes im a lesbian)
Dating involves sharing personal info, like e-mail addreses and stuff. You never know who's behind a pfp of an anime girl. They might be a 40 year old man irl.
Stay safe yall, I care about your safety :3
