Yeah, no one has asked for a game jam in a while… Perhaps I overestimated the demand for a platform to host Scratch game jams, lol.

I think there would be tons more people who would want to use it - but since so little people use the forums this isn't getting a lot of attention.

New Buildings in Scratch's headquarters
Give every Scratcher an M1 MacBook Air
Scratch should let users edit other Scratchers' projects

What do you suggest then? Maybe I could make a project about it?

That's a good idea - that will definitely attract more attention towards this.

Okay, I will make a project once I find the time.

[offtopic] @Chiroyce@CST1229, I recently saw that you've put online a modified version of the Scratch editor: Scratch CE (Community Edition). It sounds interesting, what is it about? [/offtopic]

I've never done that (never even modified Scratch in the first place) - can you share a link to it?

Also was the flame theme added recently? It looks really cool!

I felt like I wanted to develop games on here, so I won't leave! (for now)

Sorry, I confused you with @CST1229. Both of your usernames start with a “C” and both of your have blue profile pictures. Sorry, again! (Here is a link to Scratch CE by the way.)

I was testing CSS variables and forgot to remove the Flame theme (it's not complete).

A serious issue I find, that in my opinion degrades the look and feel of your site. Is the low resolution images. To fix this, you should provide at least 9 high resolution icon images to choose from based on category.


Because this doesn't look very good

I also think the UI will be mildly improved from a subtle additional padding to the elements.
Or you can simply request the use of SVGs for icons, and direct them to InkScape. (PNGs are honestly a pain to work with ngl)
Or a javascript upscaler, hmm?

Okay, that's feasible.

Which elements in particular?

Honestly, I don't think that would be a fair requirement but maybe I could add a note to encourage people to use higher resolution thumbnails.

[Incubator RC.2.0 is AVAILABLE FOR TESTING] Itinerary: Scratch Game Jams & More (itinerary.eu.org)

I've been experimenting with a new design for Itinerary that addresses most of my concerns with the current website. Also, I would like to expand the scope of this project to go beyond game jams.

Here is how the homepage looks so far:



Notable changes:
  • This new website is written in Next.js for several reasons.
    - The React ecosystem is vast and thus allows for faster development, especially when it comes to asking for help from others
    - Next.js allows me to have the code for the backend API in the same folder as the frontend, meaning that I would no longer need an external Node.js + Express.js backend. Therefore, API requests would be more instantaneous, and I could host the website using just one service (eg. Vercel) instead of having to use two, possible separate services for it (eg. I'm currently using Vercel to deploy my frontend, Replit to host my backend, and Cloudflare to manage everything DNS)
    - More smaller benefits.
  • I redesigned the look and feel of the site but I kept some design aspects from Scratch.
  • I named the project “Scratch Incubator”, though I might change this name in the future.

Please do let me know your opinions and whether you would like to see me move forward with this new design!

Incredible! I love it a lot; I think it should be the new design.



Help improve the Advanced Topics (Really!)
Before you create a topic:
Always search for duplicates or other similar topics before making an umbrella topic, e.g., “The Mac Topic”.
  • Is it about something you are planning on making but haven't made yet? If so, please wait to post until you have created a working prototype. This is a key factor to keeping the ATs as clean as possible.
  • The ATs aren't technical support. It is perfectly valid to ask questions about things related to programming, but not issues with external websites, apps, or devices. Most sites have their own support system; try asking there!
  • Is it related to something you are making in Scratch? (This includes OSes and other Scratch projects) If so, please post in Collaboration, Show and Tell, or another similar forum.
  • Is your topic questionably “advanced”? Try browsing the other forums to see if your topic fits better in one of those.
  • Issues with Scratch itself should be put in Bugs and Glitches.
Before you post: Is what you're posting likely to start an argument or derail the thread (e.g., browsers, operating systems)? If so, please re-think your post!

Honestly, I don't really care much for Scratch's design. I prefer more “modern” looking sites like the one you're designing.

Nice!


Sign on the M18 Motorway warning that horses, horse-drawn vehicles, pedestrians and bicycles are forbidden.

Road signs in the Republic of Ireland do not differ greatly from those used elsewhere in Europe – with the notable exception that hazard or warning signs follow the “New World” style of a yellow diamond. The symbols used on these warning signs do, nevertheless, resemble much more closely those used (on red-bordered white or yellow triangles) in the rest of Europe than many of those seen in the United States.


Typical road signs in rural areas of the Republic of Ireland. Here, a fingerpost with old road number and Bord Fáilte logo. Signpost located in Rathangan, Co. Kildare.

Regulatory signs (relating to limits and prohibitions) differ very little from those used in the rest of Europe.

The system of directional signs is based upon, and is very similar to, that employed in the United Kingdom, but is bilingual everywhere except in the Gaeltacht, where only the Irish language is used on signs.

In Ireland, the highest category of road is a motorway (mótarbhealach, plural: mótarbhealaí), indicated by the prefix M followed by a one- or two-digit number (the number of the national route of which each motorway forms a part). The motorway network consists entirely of motorway-grade dual carriageways and is largely focused upon Dublin. There are also several three-lane motorways, while Ireland's busiest road, the M50, incorporates four-lane, five-lane, and six-lane stretches.
