Hello. I have never been more serious about a topic on scratch. It is with a heavy heart that I must say, scratch needs to change. A few years ago (when i had not yet joined) Scratch was an amazing place, where everybody could be happy with themselves and their projects. Now, there is hate, advertisements, f4f, and everything of the sort. Scratch is changing, for the worse. People work hard on games, incredibly hard, and get no recognition. But once somebody goes and makes something exactly like it and changes the colors, that person is now the most famous on scratch.
Don't get me wrong, f4f with irl friends is completely okay. If you have a reason for f4f besides wanting followers, f4f is fine. Most of my friends on scratch have followed me, and I have followed them, because we like each other. that is NOT considered f4f.
Fame hunger is another serious topic. People who are hungry for fame will do a lot of things to get it- from advertising on famous projects to spamming their own project on the propose projects to be featured studio. If you have done one of these things, don't be disappointed in yourself. All we can do is CHANGE. If we all try our best to change, then there's a chance we can fix this. It's all or nothing. What do you say?
(Addition by WarriorsLover1124) Another problem is Art Theft. I’ve seen it so much, and it so sad. It’s most like fame chasing, stealing famous scratchers’ art by recoloring/tracing it with no credit, even claiming it was theirs! NOTE: If you are suspicious it’s theft, be sure to check out which art piece it was stolen from, it may just be a similar art style.
One more thing, we do have a few rules. 1) If you want to add a project of your own, please don't unless it is a projects on this topic.
2) No changing the title. Description is okay, if and only if you are not removing anything, and adding your own thoughts on the matter.
Just about 200-250 people. This is getting serious.
I was hacked, and my password was changed. I tried and finally I got it. Then, people all said they where someone from my school. They have my picture and my name. Help .Nobody believes me and my friends left me. (By @dccsstudent5)
" It's not about what others think, it's about what you think about anything! Like yourself, an item, a family member it doesn't matter.
Do you love the way you look? Great! Keep thinking that! Don't let others stop you from thinking it.
Bullying is another problem. In my two years on scratch, I have seen many a scratcher been chased off by bullies because, lets just face it, no matter how many fans you have, there will always be twice as many haters. We came here to be encouraged by the community, us aspiring coders, yet we are belittled for making mistakes! Are we all not equal here? We must fight back. Scratch, meant to be a community for aspiring coders, has become a breeding ground for bullies! We must make Scratch great again! Thank you for listening.
Add the Crying Cat emoji in the bottom left corner of your PFP if you agree!
One of my first friends: @I-Like-Biplanes had gotten hacked quite a few months ago but this guy sole his password and everything, then my friend caught him and stuff went good. then later this guy had the same name except one change in it like my friend's username so it seemed like my friend was sayng all this bad stuff to his followers when it was just the imposter. the guy eventually stopped and was banned but my friend lost a lot of followers and trust from people.
GOOD JOB WITH THIS STUDIO!!!I don't do F4F, And People Still ask me.They keep asking over and over,and it drives me nuts.One Person told me that they had 99 followers,bu they had like,65. People just try to get more followers. I follow people because I like there projects.I don't want to follow people that I don't want to.We,as a community,need to SAVE Scratch!!Thank you for this studio!!!!(And No One add Random Projects pls!!)
You have know idea how much it means to me that this studio exists, I’m grateful. I have seen way too much bullying in real life and online lately. It hurts! PEOPLE HAVE NO DISCIPLINE THESE DAYS! THEY CAN’T CONTROL THEMSELVES. ON SCRATCH I HAVE SEEN RE-COLOURS AND REMIXES WITHOUT GIVING CREDIT TO THE OWNER. EVEN ART CLAIMS!! MY ONLINE FRIEND LEFT A WHILE AGO BECAUSE PEOPLE WERE STEALING HER ART AND ST DIDN’T DO MUCH ABOUT IT. AND I CAN’T SPEAK TO HER ANYMORE. I restrain to leave as there is still a small portion of the real community left that I enjoy being with. Whoever’s reading this, may god bless you <3
@IvyWolfsbane: WE NEED TO SAVE SCRATCH ITS DYING AND TURNING INTO A BULLYING SITE; WE NEED TO STOP THIS IT CANT GO ON
