Hello Scratch Team. You have been pushing a liberal political agenda on this site for far too long. This site should stay out of politics. People should be able to still post their political opinions, but there shouldn’t be any “official” political stance or Scratch. The ST is not going to change this on their own, and shoot down any attempts asking them to change. Please put this in your signature if you agree that

Scratch should be politically neutral.

The ST’s biggest defense is that they’re being welcoming, but they can be perfectly welcoming of all people and stay out of politics. Scratch is about coding, and that should be the Scratch Team’s biggest concern to maintain.

No, because it's simply linking a post where the ST said something.

That was regarding the April Fools' of 2022 (this year) not next year. There were still a lot of April Fools' Topics this year, so I'd say it will still happen.

as you can see, the responses to the post that you’ve linked are pretty anti-stopping-april-fools-joke-topics, so i’d say it would be fine if you don’t do it outside of the 1st of april and you keep it scratch appropriate. after all, it’s only 1-2 days (allowing for timezone differences) a year that there’s joke topics.

hi! i like eurovision, cats, and music in general.
here’s a pmv i made, i’d appreciate if you viewed it <3

please don’t take anything i say offensively or rudely! i don’t mean it that way :)

With what happened last year and this year, we're really starting to heavily lean towards “no” (although, I personally was, and always will be, dead-set on “NO”).

There's really is just not enough mods for cleanup afterwards, and there was a huge unfair disparity in people (literally only two people) who genuinely cared enough to re-bump all the relevant suggestions and push down the spam topics to the end of the suggestion list. All the joke topics have done is take time away from mods to do their job, take free time from community members who program or interact with the Scratch website in other meaningful ways, and throw donated server money down the drain.

Sadly, my forum signature was eaten by an evil kumquat.
