A '''[[Scratch Design Studio]]  [[Curator]],''' or a '''SDS Curator,''' is a [[Studio#Curators|curator]] selected to add [[project]]s to the Scratch Design Studio.

SDS Curators spend many hours with SDS-related work. For instance, they add/review projects, they discuss SDS related things in the SDS Private Forum, and more. It isn't an easy job to have.
 +
 
 +
=== Reviewing and Adding Projects ===
 +
One of the main duties of an SDS curator is to add projects to the SDS. However, the SDS Curators also have to review the project first, to make sure it's suitable for the front page, and that it fits the requirements of the SDS. It's not uncommon for an SDS Curator to not add a project, but when they don't, they notify the creator of the project that the project was not added for whatever reason, and sometimes ask them to repost the link when fixed. When a project is added, they also notify the creator, telling the user that their project has been added. This is to avoid confusion among the user and other curators. Curators discuss specific projects they aren't sure about in the private SDS forum.
 +
 
 +
=== Answering Questions ===
 +
Curators also have to answer questions other users have about the Scratch Design Studio, and answer comments in the studios. They have to answer hundreds of comments which aren't just about the SDS, but about Scratch too.
 +
 
 +
=== Choosing New SDS Themes ===
 +
The SDS curators also choose future SDS themes with the Scratch Team. Some SDS studios are new and original ideas for themes, and some ideas picked were submitted as a project in the "Propose Scratch Design Studio Themes!" studio.
  
The duties of a Scratch Design Studio curator are to review and add projects that are submitted in the studio's comments. Anybody can make a project for the studio, and SDS curators look through the submissions from where the last project was added and add some submissions. They have to check if the project fits the studio's theme before adding it, and if it would be appropriate for the front page. If a curator is unsure whether to add a project or not, they ask whether it would work in the SDS Curator Meeting Area.
+
=== Setting Up New Studios ===
 +
When a theme has been officially chosen, it's the job of the SDS Curators to set up the new studio. The studio itself is made by the [[Scratch Team]] under the account ScratchDesignStudio, but it's the role of the curators to get the description, thumbnail, title and seed projects. They often discuss their progress in the private SDS forum.

+
=== Choosing New Curators ===
 +
When new curators are required, it's the current SDS curators role to decide new curators. They discuss this in the private SDS forum. When they've decided on (a) new curator(s), they notify the [[Scratch Team]], who gets in touch with the new curator(s).

An SDS helper is a Scratcher who, through helping around in an SDS (answering questions, giving feedback, etc.), is invited to curate the studio that they helped in to solely add projects, answer questions, and give feedback. It is not a guarantee they will be invited to the new SDS after the original SDS they helped in, and it is not a guarantee that if one helps out in the SDS they'll get an invite. The people who invite them are usually members of the Scratch Team but SDS Curators can also invite.

A Scratch Design Studio Curator, or a SDS Curator, is a curator selected to add projects to the Scratch Design Studio. The Scratch Design Studio is a themed studio run by the Scratch Team that appears on the front page and is changed approximately every month. SDS curators can recommend new curators, and if other curators agree that they would be a good addition to the team, and the Scratch Team approves of them becoming one, they will get an invite to become an SDS curator. They have also shared a project on their collab account, SDS-Updates, that is a tutorial on How to Become an SDS Curator, with tips on what they look for in new SDS curators. All Scratch Design Studios are created by the account ScratchDesignStudio which is controlled by the Scratch Team.

Duties

SDS Curators spend many hours with SDS-related work. For instance, they add/review projects, they discuss SDS related things in the SDS Private Forum, and more. It isn't an easy job to have.

Reviewing and Adding Projects

One of the main duties of an SDS curator is to add projects to the SDS. However, the SDS Curators also have to review the project first, to make sure it's suitable for the front page, and that it fits the requirements of the SDS. It's not uncommon for an SDS Curator to not add a project, but when they don't, they notify the creator of the project that the project was not added for whatever reason, and sometimes ask them to repost the link when fixed. When a project is added, they also notify the creator, telling the user that their project has been added. This is to avoid confusion among the user and other curators. Curators discuss specific projects they aren't sure about in the private SDS forum.

Answering Questions

Curators also have to answer questions other users have about the Scratch Design Studio, and answer comments in the studios. They have to answer hundreds of comments which aren't just about the SDS, but about Scratch too.

Choosing New SDS Themes

The SDS curators also choose future SDS themes with the Scratch Team. Some SDS studios are new and original ideas for themes, and some ideas picked were submitted as a project in the "Propose Scratch Design Studio Themes!" studio.

Setting Up New Studios

When a theme has been officially chosen, it's the job of the SDS Curators to set up the new studio. The studio itself is made by the Scratch Team under the account ScratchDesignStudio, but it's the role of the curators to get the description, thumbnail, title and seed projects. They often discuss their progress in the private SDS forum.

Choosing New Curators

When new curators are required, it's the current SDS curators role to decide new curators. They discuss this in the private SDS forum. When they've decided on (a) new curator(s), they notify the Scratch Team, who gets in touch with the new curator(s).

Becoming a Curator

The past Scratch Team member taranir made a project explaining how you could become an SDS curator. The current curators have recently updated the project with more information. It said:

Be friendly, thoughtful and polite.

Comment often, and constructively.

SDS curators have to answer hundreds of comments, not just add projects. This includes answering various questions about Scratch and SDS, or making constructive comments about projects. You can show that you fit the role by making helpful replies to comments like these!

Be reliable and committed.

We need curators that will be active and dedicated for at least a few months. They should also let us know if they'll be inactive for long periods of time or need to step down. Real life and school comes first, but you should not ask to be an SDS curator unless you know that you'll be able to check in and add a few projects a couple times a week.

SDS curators are chosen when we see people doing all these things in the community. There is currently no application process, but you can be invited to be a curator by giving great, constructive feedback to submissions over a long period of time.

Scratch Design Studio Helper

An SDS helper is a Scratcher who, through helping around in an SDS (answering questions, giving feedback, etc.), is invited to curate the studio that they helped in to solely add projects, answer questions, and give feedback. It is not a guarantee they will be invited to the new SDS after the original SDS they helped in, and it is not a guarantee that if one helps out in the SDS they'll get an invite. The people who invite them are usually members of the Scratch Team but SDS Curators can also invite. The SDS helpers curate the studios, while the SDS curators manage the studio.[4] SDS helper is not an official name, and was given by the community.

SDS helpers are different to SDS curators as curators help decide new curators and plan new studios whereas helpers do not. More information on the difference between helpers and curators can be found here in a project created by SDS curator makethebrainhappy.

Scratch Design Studio Translator

A Scratch Design Studio Translator is a Scratcher who is invited to help translate to current SDS, but does not necessarily manage or curate the SDS studio. An SDS Translator's responsibilities are:

  • You must fluently translate the current SDS
  • You must post your translation within two weeks of the SDS being on the front page
