I disagree, whoever has published a new project usually makes a sponsor study. Also who makes a contest makes a studio in which he invites his followers. It could be said that the ST could allow you to invite a maximum of a quarter of its followers per day. So, if for example I have 396 followers then I will be able to invite a maximum of 99 people per day. PS: I'm the king of the 9th page

10-25 in a certain amount of time, like 30 seconds, if you do more than that in that time frame, then you get 60 sec ruled. (120 for New Scratchers.)

Do you think you've been banned unfairly? Then you'd be wrong. The ST aren't children, so quit acting like they are.

I would like the invite followers button back as well. I want to invite more people into my studio, and I want my followers to be in it.

This is my signature. It doesn’t like to be noticed, so please don’t look at it.

Studios weren't created for sending a message to followers about your new project.

Studios were created for their themes. They were created for users to interact and connect over a mutually enjoyed theme. Using these to send unwanted messages to followers about a new project isn't exactly using studios correctly. While one could argue that a single project is the theme, that doesn't really count as one. The only projects allowed in that studio would have to be remixes for it to even remotely qualify as a theme, but that doesn't seem fair at all.

While Scratch is not about fame, when one has a small amount of followers, it's more understandable to use studios like this. But when a user has a good 7k, do they really need those 50 extra views? If users care enough about a different user's content, they'll check their profile for something new every once in a while–There's no need to send them an unwanted message.

It's spammy.

As I mentioned earlier, most users get annoyed when they recieve these messages, and if it happens after almost every single project, that's a bit of an issue.

Scratch isn't about fame.

Having a lot of followers and doing this is just, no. As if 2k favorites and 5000 views per project isn't enough. It's just showing how greedy one can be with the power to invite followers easily.

Fanclubs are just fine, maybe better off this way.

Fanclubs should be for the users who actively enjoy one's content, not for every single follower. If someone doesn't want to join a fanclub, they shouldn't recieve a spam message regardless just for following someone. It's better that the users who actually want to be part of a fanclub get invited because they ask in the comments.
I see your points, however, most of my followers want to be notified when I release a new project, and only a VERY small percentage don't like it and decide to unfollow me. Because of this update, there is no way the people who want to know when I make a new project will know. If someone is recieving spam, they can similpy choose to unfollow the user.

Inviting my followers to studios is a important way to get views and loves to be able to get on trending, as someone who is following me is much more likely to love than someone who is not. (for example, my project got 10 loves for its first 50 views, (20%) but at 70000, it had 3500(2%) and yes, scratch isn't about fame, but this update still pains me as it will be alot harder to get on trending. It also shows my followers that I'm still active, and fufills the promise on my projects: “follow to get notified of new projects I make” so alot of my followers followed me so they could get notified. Taking away this feature would prevent some unwanted spam, but it would also cause lots of inconvince.

Yes! If people don't want to know why did they follow? And then if they think it's spam, just unfollow!
That's not a valid reason to re-add the button. What if you like someone's projects but hate getting added to studios?

Why would hate just be added to it bc it's about a project? And if someone tries to say that you can see a release on what's happening I'm going to ask them, Do you think I'll be online 24/7 for the whole year? And if you are trying to invite people to a studio for example, like an… animal studio spreading awareness about animal cruelty, and you wanted to invite your followers wouldn't that be good? And I would think that a studio curated by many would be easier to find, and more widely circulated meaning the message would be shared wider.

what do you mean? managers could always invite followers

I agree with not having an “Invite ALL followers button”, but having the “Invite followers button” is very useful. It makes inviting people WAY easier. I use it to invite followers to my fanclub, notify followers of new projects, and lots of other small things. If someone is following you, they should want to see your content. There is a “What's happening” in the front page, but it is VERY small and if your following lots of people it doesn't really help.

Very much agreed. As someone with a lot of followers, some of them aren't active when I am and they are active while I sleep. Studios can notify people about life way easier since there is more space in studio descriptions than project descriptions or comments. Also, we also need studios to invite friends so you can collab with them. Some of my friends have complex usernames, I don't like copy and pasting them in all the time, and 90% of the time, your friend is one of your followers, so you can simply go to them in the “invite followers” tab and click and you're done.

That's exactly why it was removed. The “Invite Followers” bar was removed because it was creating spam invites.

I never said anything about the “What's happening?” section .

Yes, it would be good. Studios are fine if they have a purpose other than getting followers to see one single project.

But Scratch isn't about fame. A studio growing is only a good thing if the studio exists for a legitimate reason, such as your previous example.

You must know all your friends' usernames, do you not?

I do not support, because you can't be sure if all of your followers will be interested in the studio you invited them. I had been invited many times in studios I didn't like by the people I followed. If someone posts WHY I will change my mind.

Actually, they may follow you just because they are interested in SOME content of yours. Also, it can be used for spam. I am one of the few non-ST Scratchers who didn't dislike A THING about the update.

Unfortunately it's not really everyones problem, spam invites because it's just some people deciding to send spam. But though the thing I'm about to say isn't the most related thing to this topic, wouldn't it be good to note that spam is unwanted messages which are sent without to someone without their permission? tell me if I'm wrong, but to be honest would studio activity possibly be spam as well? Anyway the thing is we are now being forced to invite by username because of some scratchers sending spam, but another solution is simply choose what type of notifications you want to get to you. That way people can basically decline studio invites, and if anyone wants me to explain that again then just ask

I hope no one finds anything that I wrote disrespectful though I honestly highly doubt it-

Well people do have other things to do, and might not be allowed online or to use screens so much a day. if he could have 10 minutes online a day and had many friends and possibly some days couldn't play at all, would it not also take hime a while? That's my honest opinion.

Nope, because you get these messages only once per day. You can get infinite studio invites per day, however.

Hello scratchers / ST. There was recently an update to the studio system and it looks amazing, but there is one problem. I can only invite curators by username now. I used to be able to click the “Invite followers” button and easily invite my followers to a studio, but now have to invite them one by one by username, which takes forever! (Especially considering I have over 4,800+ followers) Again the new studio update was great, but please consider adding the “Invite followers” button back to studios. Thanks and stay cool! -Coolbe22

As well as that, Comment threads can only be up to 25 replies long (Which kills RPGs) Studios can not have more than 40 managers (bad for really huge studios/chatrooms) and Managers can not edit the title, thumbnail, or descriptions of studios (which basically makes their role pointless.)
I guess managers can still invite people, but yeah i agree

I like gaming and coding. I have 2 bunnies
