Updates! Feb 13th, 2015

Hey everyone! We have a big batch of updates for you all :]

Email Confirmation
We're now requesting user's confirm their email address when creating a new Scratch account. Confirming your email address will enable your account to leave comments, share projects, and create studios. We will send you an email after registration with a link to confirm your account. All you need to do is click that link. Pretty simple, eh?

You're not required to confirm your email address. However, unconfirmed accounts will only be able to make and save unshared projects.

All accounts made before this update do not need to confirm their email address to leave comments, share projects, and create studios, etc.

Why do this? A couple reasons! 1) We're planning to release Scratch email updates soon! So, we want to make sure we're sending updates to working email addresses. 2) We've seen a lot trouble around password reseting and incorrect and / or fake email addresses. It's important the email is working to make this process work smoothly.

Customizable Featured Project Panel
We now have the ability to customize our “Featured Project” panel on our profile page. You can select from 6 presets:

- Featured Project
- Featured Tutorial
- Work In Progress
- Remix This!
- My Favorite Things
- Why I Scratch

To do this: Go to Featured Project panel on your profile. Hover over your featured project, and then click “Change Featured Project.” Then simply pick one of the presets from the drop-down menu on that page.

Design a Valentine
Look for the new heart sprites and “Design a Valentine” tutorial in the Tips Window.

Password Protecting Empty Trash
You'll now need to enter your password to “Empty Trash” aka permanently delete your projects.

ooh, you're making great progress! I'd just wish I could learn more about these email updates. is there a possibility of also using these confirmed email addresses to subscribe to our messages while we're offline?

edit: I like the orange color to the “Send” button in the email settings page. nice to see something different than the mundane blue button.

edit2: okay I have now confirmed my email address and absolutely love the page for it. although the search bar is squished upward, and the button does nothing at that point (does it?)

THANK YOU!!!!!! but I feel the work-in-progress option might encourage users to share their works early and cause them to lose motivation in working on them… but I like this update!
Design a Valentine
Look for the new heart sprites and “Design a Valentine” tutorial in the Tips Window.
okay!

Ok, but if I use a parent's email, it would be kind of annoying to get them to log onto their email and except the confirmation.

The scratch site hardly works on IE 11 is it that you guys added so much stuff that the servers are slowing down even though I have a 50MBPS connection or is it that a lot of people are online.

The site is getting a little faster but the trash isn't working even after I type in my password it refreshes and the project is still there sitting there waiting to be deleted.
