Are projects that are made/modified in things like TurboWarp not technically allowed?

I saw in the Terms of Use that you can't use modified versions of Scratch to make projects and share them:

Does this mean we can't use things like TurboWarp to make and share projects? I feel like a lot of people (including me) do this. Is it enforced at all and could there be punishments?

Sorry, you have to wait 60 seconds between posts.

If you can't download the normal 2.0 editor, try these steps:

Download the Adobe Flash Player Projecter here: https://web.archive.org/web/20220401020702/https://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/debug_downloads.html (sadly they took it down recently from the official site, thanks to the Internet Archive for archiving it)

Select the program that is right for your device. Do not download the debugger, just the projector. After you download it, install/open it.

Download Scratch 2.0 here: http://cdn.scratch.mit.edu/scratchr2/static/__ff878b6c9b6c4d18fab154a707dc253c__/Scratch.swf

Now, go into the Flash Player, and press File > Open, and then select the .swf file you downloaded.

Now you should be able to use Scratch 2.0 on your computer!

It's not as enforced as the other rules, but yes, you can't use TurboWarp to make and share projects. Also, you technically can't upload projects made with the 3.0 or 2.0 offline editor, since the source code described in Section 5.3 shows the source code for Scratch 1.4. However I doubt the ST takes action against projects made with the 3.0/2.0 offline editors.

I don’t even think that they can really tell as far as I can see, but even if they do I’ve never heard a case of this happening.

I think there are exceptions for sharing projects made using the 2.0 Offline Editor. (An example is sharing projects made with obsolete blocks.)

This post/signature was made possible by a user called k0d3rrr. And now, in the words of historical_supa: “Shift+down to do the funni”

I'm k0d3rrr. I make music and draw art! I also make random projects whenever I have no idea when what to make. Dang my lack of grammar sometimes.

I play Portal a lot.

(Thanks to @World_Languages )

I also play Roblox.

I saw an Osu! Scratch game where you had to go to TurboWrap to make custom songs, would that be reportable?

If using turbowarp to make projects and publish them on scratch is, then I’d think it is; but unless you have an very strong computer you can’t really use it on the scratch website; and it’s made to be used on turbowarp; so technically, it never tells you to go on scratch in the first place, which makes me wonder if it is bannable?

Basically, you’re not meant to use the project on scratch even though it was published there, so I’m not sure if it’s bannable to use the level maker.
