I wonder why you can't load unshared projects

I don't know much about this, but I read that Turbowarp will not let you load your unshared projects soon due to some sort of change that I don't really know about. From what I know so far, personally I think changes should not be made because, other than running projects faster than normal, Turbowarp is useful for while you are making the project, but if you can't load your unshared project anymore then Turbowarp will be useless for that purpose.

I wonder why you can't load unshared projects

Its due to a few things. One thing is that it could be used for sharing personal information. IE, person A puts their phone number in a project. Person A give person B the project ID. Person B opens the project, and get their phone number. They can now call each other and the ST can’t risk children getting involved with that. PersonA’s project won’t be reported, as TurboWarp doesn’t have a report feature.
It could also lead to pming, PA giver PB an id, than PB downloads it and changes it. PB gives PA the ID. The cycle goes on

I wonder why you can't load unshared projects

It's mainly a security issue. Since someone's projects are unshared, they should have the right to not have those projects released to the public, giving them a sense of privacy.

This was a bug that has existed for a very long time. From what I gather, the Scratch Team was not really happy about this bug, but it just took them a long time to get around to fixing it.

It wasn't intended to be able to in the first place, so…

I wonder why you can't load unshared projects

I wonder why would people put their phone numbers in the projects in the first place, then share the id in the first place?

There are other things that could be shared too, like inappropriate messages or pictures. Plus, scratchers should feel safe to put anything in their projects without it being seen while unshared.
