Wait are faces even allowed?

Recently, I stumbled upon a project with a users face on it and so I did the responsible thing of reporting it. I clicked “Other” and I read through the Face Reveal thing.
Okay, normal. I read through it, however, and apparently Scratch allows people to: “use pictures of their face in creative projects…” and then lists examples (image is below).

So now I am confused: are faces allowed on Scratch?



(ps: I reported the project to be safe, assuming the ST will make their own conclusion)

If the project is only about a face reveal, then it's not allowed. But if it's a game, for example, with someone's face in it, then it should be OK, according to the rules.

Yes. You can use your face if the purpose of the project isn't a face reveal.
As of 2022, the only allowed way to include one's face in a project is if it is not the main focus. For example, one can use one's own face as a type of block in a game, but it is not allowed to make it so that their face is absolutely essential to a project.
