A friend is a Scratcher that has been added to another Scratcher's friend list. When a friend is added, they are not entitled to any personal information that you have used to register, other than their username. Once someone is added as a friend, new projects they share will show up under the "My Friends' Latest Projects" section on the Front Page.

Note Warning: No matter how close you feel to a friend on Scratch, never share personal information (like your birthdate, name, password, where you live) or agree to meet up in public with them.

Adding Friends

To add friends, all you have to do is go to the wanted user's profile and select the "add to friends" button. Once done, the user will receive a private notification that they have been added to your friend list.

Removing Friends

To remove users from your friend list, visit your friend list's page and click the X's on the right of each added user's username.

Reasons

Scratchers add others for reasons such as:

  • Someone may have given help on a project
  • To see any future projects the Scratcher will make
  • If they know them in real life
  • If they've posted a friendly comment on a project
  • If they join a particular gallery
  • Because they consider that user an online friend

Scratch 2.0 Friend System

The Scratch 2.0 system is based upon following instead of friending.
