"Homepage" redirects here. For Scratch Wiki homepage, see Main Page.
The Front Page.
The Front Page is a common term that refers to the Scratch Homepage, where many projects are shown in varied rows — from projects selected by curators to projects that have been featured by the Scratch Team to projects that are being liked.

In some cases a project is deemed inappropriate for the front page, and marked Not For Everyone.

What's Happening?

Main article: What's Happening?

The What's Happening? section is shown in the top-left of the page. It shows recent activity by Scratchers the logged-in user is following. This includes sharing, remixing; loving, and favoriting projects, following users and studios, and adding projects to studios.

Scratch News

Main article: Scratch News

The Scratch News section is shown in the top-right of the page. The Scratch Team publishes short news items here. Most have a longer version accessible on the official news page, and a link to a forum topic.

Rows

The Front Page consists of eight rows when logged, and only four when logged out. Each row displays 5 projects or 4 studios (depending on the row) at a time, but are scrollable.

  1. Featured Projects: When the Scratch Team greatly likes a project, they feature it here. Projects can be recommended to be featured in this forum thread.
  2. Featured Studios: This row is similar to the above one, except that this is where studios are featured.
  3. Projects by Scratchers I'm Following: This section displays recent projects from users one is following. This row is shown only to logged-in users that are following other users.
  4. Projects Loved by Scratchers I'm Following: This section displays recent projects that users one is following have loved. This row is shown only to logged-in users that are following other users.
  5. Projects in Studios I'm Following: This section displays projects in studios one is following. This row is shown only to logged-in users that are following studios.
  6. What the Community is Sharing: This section shows projects out of the most recent projects shared. This row is shown only to logged-in users due to the fact that inappropriate projects can be shown.
  7. What the Community is Remixing: This section displays the top most remixed projects under ten days old.
  8. What the Community is Loving: This section displays the top most remixed projects under ten days old.

Some projects are exempt from the top ten. These include projects that are featured or curated, or projects by a user who has another project on the front page. If a project is in the Top Loved, it will not be shown in Top Remixed. In these cases, the eleventh, twelfth, or lower ranked projects are added into the choices.
