Welcome to Past FPCs Unite!
And feel free to ask for tips!
This studio is two things:
1, A place for past FPCs to lend their advice to people in the running who would like it.
2, A place for former FPCs to come together and be like "Well, back when /I/ was FPC..." (discuss your FPC experience and remember the fun/craziness that it was. XD)
*Question of the Month*
What is the best part of being FPC in your opinion?
NOTE: we are not the future FPCs, meaning that we cannot curate your projects. For that, check out @TheNextCurator
For this studio, it's really up to you what you'd like to add, though preferably projects with advice on becoming FPC made by a former FPC, perhaps your accepted application and similar projects thereof. ^.^
~CURATING AND MANAGING~
Only former FPCs can manage, and people helping around FPC-stuff (If they curate the FPC Application studio, if they help review applications, etc) may curate, as well as a select handful of others. :3
Well now old FPCers, let's get on' a workin' inviting all da former FPCs, ana help'n out those in'de runnin'!
*Please note that this is NOT an "Oh let's try and get all the former FPCs" studio!*
*Thanks to @ScratchinJoJo for our magnificent thumbnail!*
Quotes from past FPCs:
"Being FPC is really cool! If you're planning to become one, make sure to use accepted applications as references: It helps so much!"
"Being FPC is a very cool experience, and I think it is great to be able to bring great projects into the limelight. If you are interested, you should definitely go ahead!
"Being a FPC is a wonderful experience, because you get to meet a lot of scratchers, and you get to show (mostly) unknown projects to the community."
"Format is everything for your application. Good luck! Be you!"
"Being a FPC is a great experience that makes the person feel much more mature, as that is what it requires. (A Mature person.) When you're FPC, you gain much more benefits. (Respect in the Community, followers, etc.) Being FPC is a wonderful experience if you can handle it."
"Being FPC is amazing because you get to share part of yourself with the community through what projects you like."
"Being FPC is amazing. You see new projects, meet new scratchers, and you feel much more mature. You also get a lot more messages (75 more than you usually do, give or take)."
“Never give up. I almost deleted the app the day before @ceebee chose me XD (look at the comments). And also, WAIT THE FULL 3 MONTHS FOR YOUR APP TO EXPIRE. PEOPLE ARE LIKE, YEAH I HAD 5 APPS 6 MONTHS. JUST NO, YOU ARE ONLY SUPPOSED TO HAVE TWO, OK! CEEBEE DOESNT IGNORE APPS; SHE SEES THEM OK OK. (RANT PURPLE)”
"Being FPC is really fun, you get to look at all of those underviewed projects and going through the requests is interesting as you get to see what people have been making. You can make a lot of friends and meet new people and it's just amazing overall!" @D_i_a_v_l_o
"In all seriousness, don't bite off more than you can chew- being FPC is a big responsibility and very time-consuming. It's really awesome once you do it, though, and you meet tons of new people and see a whole new side of Scratch! Definitely one of the high points of my Scratch career."
"What everyone else said... XD
Anyways... If you're still making your app, think about what your favorite type of project is. Are there unique types of that project that you really like? If so, say that in your app. Being FPC is an amazing experience, and it was so amazing seeing my username and my favorite projects on the FP!"
"Be patient. On the day I got picked, I was about to delete my application, but then I got the message from @ceebee!"
"It doesn't matter how popular you are to get chosen. I had, like, 10 followers when I got chosen for FPC. (With 1 application :3)"
"As Coralreef said, be patient! I got accepted on my third application, three months after I made it. Also, remember that @ceebee has to look through hundreds, if not, thousands, of applications every time she chooses someone, so make yours stand out. What makes YOU special? Be YOUnique."
"Ok, I know a lot of people are saying this, but you need to be patient! I'd say only about 25% of FPCs got accepted on their first application, and probably only 5% of them got their application accepted within a week! You need to be really patient if you want to be FPC."
"So many people are saying to be patient. That's so true! Wait at least three months to make a new application. Ask for advice and be specific! And give your application a touch of yourself!"
"OML... people in the FPCA are screaming why haven't I been accepted when I waited 3 days!? You really have to be patient and literally make a new app when 3 months have passed."
