Maybe you're like me who checks the Scratch Statistics every day, or maybe seeing this studio made you check to make sure it wasn't April Fools Day. Because the thing is: if I'm not mistaken we just had a Scratch Design Studio (SDS) for 10 million projects less then a year ago!
Anyways, everyone be happy! For we have 15 million projects! And 12 million users (growing by almost 15,000 every day!) That's a lot of users!
To celebrate this big landmark in Scratch history, I am hosting a challenge. Everyone may submit a project that has to do with 15 million projects and / or 12 million users.
To participate simply create a project about this landmark and leave a link in the comments by June the 7th (subject to change depending on how many entries we have). Some ideas for projects are a pen, cloning, a dance party, or hosting a "Remix and I'll add your ___" and then submitting the final project (If you do this you can submit a link to the project you want people to remix and we will add it to the studio until entries are due so more people know about it).
On June 14th I will pick awards. They will be Best Pen Project, Best Cloning Project, Best Dance Party, Best Original Project, Most Unique Idea, Best Remixed Project, Best 15 Million Project Project and Best 12 Million User Project. Each participant will only be able to receive a maximum of two awards to ensure a wide range of users will get a reward.
You may add / leave a link to any project you found in the community that has to do with this but it only is part of the contest if the creator of the project has asked for it to be.
Want to curate? Sure thing! Only add projects about this landmark though, and if you want your project to be part of the contest you may add it here but also let us know on @coke11's profile. To become one just comment asking to and promise to follow the community guidelines and not to add any projects unrelated to the landmark.
Want to manage? Sorry but only trusted Scratch Design Studio (SDS) helpers, Scratch Stability Team (SST) members, Scratch Design Studio (SDS) curators, Scratch Welcoming Committee (SWC) curators, experienced wikimans / admins and other trusted community members may curate (If you argue about being a manager you are taken off the listen of possibly being one).
If you have any questions feel free to reach out to @coke11 or ask in the comments. Good luck!
P.S. Don't forget you can add any projects related to this, yours or not! If it isn't yours you may want to comment on the project letting them know your adding the project and it won't be part of the contest unless they ask.

Happy 15 millionth project!
Wow! Haven't checked the statistics in a while! Scratch is sure growing quick! Happy 15 million projects Scratch :)
YAY! Scratch is so big now! And it's being used all around the world, it's awesome! =D
Happy 15 million!
Fun fact: There are 15 million SHARED projects. There are around 95 million UNSHARED projects. This means there are about 110 million projects total!
