how can i make scratch improve?

so i used to complain about the scratch moderation but i stopped since i realized they were a non profit company with not many mods essay: https://en.scratch-wiki.info/wiki/User:Jvvg/Essays/Maybe_the_Scratch_Team_isn%27t_so_bad.

i want scratch to improve on moderation on the website more often and interacting with other scratcher much often (sometimes)

Probably just try helping the ST mitigate CG/ToU/etc breaking stuff.

If you have something to suggest to them that has something to do with say, moderation/etc, then that goes to Contact-Us, though mostly everything can go there, especially if there's just too much to report. funny how i say this when I sent a txt file that led to multiple users following inappropriate usernames, one's following list totaling over 1.3k+ of them

Here are a few things you can do:
- Help out other users on the forums by answering their questions in Questions about Scratch, Help with Scripts, etc.
- Make high quality projects to show what Scratch can do and encourage others to use it
- Interact positively with the community
- Make constructive suggestions in the suggestions forum and offer constructive feedback on ones you already see
- Report anything bad you see or anything on the forums that needs moderator action

You could also convince a parent or trusted adult to donate or make a suggestion on how to improve scratch in the suggestions subforum.

In general, just answer people's questions and be helpful, report bad things you see, and be kind. But if you want something specific, helping out on the forums is an underrated way you can help Scratch.

Technically, everyone who uses the website is expected to watch the website to some degree. That’s how online moderation systems work in general - users are supposed to hit the report button instead of responding or feeding the trolls. There’s only so much a moderator’s beatwalk will cover. It’s why the ST has a tendency to raise their eyebrows when people complain of content they find that breaks the Community Guidelines, it’s the equivalent of blaming firefighters for not putting out a fire when no one has called the fire department and everyone has dumped fuel on a burning building thinking fuel acts like water. You’d be surprised at how many times the ST stumbles across an attack comment chain something like 50+ dogpiled comments in, which is beyond the threshold of what is needed to get a comment hidden and a moderator alerted. And that 50+ has ramifications, as it means that 50+ more delays getting to other tickets.

The best way for users to improve the moderation on any website is by understanding and supporting the online space you’ve joined, and by not making it harder than it should be for the moderators to do their job. In the case of Scratch, the website was aimed at kids and beginners with the intent of making it easier for them to get into programming. So the least anyone could do to improve the moderation on here is to be kid-friendly and constructive when posting, and to hit the report button hard and fast when something needs a moderator attention.

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

blah blah blah

TLDR:

Users must watch the website and report any rule-breaking content. Moderators can only cover so much ground. Scratch is for kids and beginners, so be constructive and kid-friendly. Report violations promptly to help moderators do their job efficiently.
