Sometimes, it can be a bit hard to share your ideas with people, its honestly kinda stressful! This studio is meant to be a supportive place where you can shape your ideas into something you can be proud of, instead of worried about!
This studio has two main goals:
One, to help avoid Creativity Stress ('Creativity Stress' is when you look at other people's work, and you start to question 'is my story/art/idea/etc. original enough?') You can get some feedback on your ideas too.
This studio's also meant to be a place where you can discuss your ideas with people, and people can give feedback to you, good feedback, and maybe a bit of criticism, (CONSTRUCTIVE.) and tell you what you could change to make it feel more confident in your idea once you've had some other people look at it.
In no way am I telling you to criticize people if they don't want to be criticized. Or to be mean to anyone.
-No stealing someone else's shared idea.
-No being overly critical (in your criticism). Give some positive AND SLIGHTLY negative feedback, but don't be like 'your idea stinks.' (For example a story idea.) Instead, be like 'I like your characters, but your overall plot could use some work to it to make it fit the characters better.)
-Don't be afraid of giving CONSTRUCTIVE criticism. It can be really frustrating when you try to figure out a way to improve, but people just say "oh that's really good!" You're not going to hurt the person, you're helping them! (ONLY if they ask for criticism!)
-Don't get mad if no one looks at your idea/ project the second you add it/ comment it! People aren't on Scratch every hour of every day! Someone will look at it! (But if it's been a couple days, comment on my profile, PLEASE!)
-Be nice, follow Scratch Guidelines, you know the drill, nothing inappropriate, (if your story/idea has blood involved, don't describe any of it, just describe around it.)
-ONLY SAY SOMETHING YOU'D BE OKAY BEING ON THE RECEIVING END OF. THIS IS A SUPER IMPORTANT RULE OKAY.
-NO random projects, or advertising! Advertising comments will be deleted, and random projects will be removed. (And the person who put them there will be removed from the studio.)
-You can add projects with your story/idea/art in it, or you can comment about it!
-You DON'T have to be a curator to share your idea! (*If you want to share your art, you'd have to ask a curator/ manager if you DON'T want to curate. Or you can ask a manager to add you as a curator!)
-IF I INVITE YOU AND YOU DON'T WANT TO BE IN THIS STUDIO, PLEASE NICELY TELL ME NOT TO ADD YOU TO ANY STUDIOS, *please don't be rude. It makes me sad.*
-Managers, feel free to add more curators!
-If someone said something that broke the rules, but no one noticed, tell me on my profile, or address me ( @EightDeadlySin ) DIRECTLY in the comments.
-If there's anything you think I should add to the rules, something I've forgotten, TELL ME!
-Finally, if you don't abide by any of these rules, (the ones I can see.) within reason, (if it was an accident, just comment that it was an accident, and then its all good!) then you will be removed from the studio.
