The Welcoming Committee logo, showing the Scratch Cat and Tera.

The Welcoming Committee is a program created to help welcome new Scratchers to the website. Scratchers can join the committee by creating a welcoming project and asking for it to be added to the Welcoming Committee Studio.

How it Works

When a Scratcher creates a project welcoming new Scratchers, they can request for it to be added to the gallery. A Welcoming Committee coordinator will view the project and give suggestions for changes until it's ready for the gallery. Once the project is accepted, the creator is a member of the Scratch Welcoming Committee.

Members of the Welcoming Committee are expected to help greet and answer questions that new members might have.

The three links on a new user's userspage

When a user registers, they'll see three links on their My Stuff page. The first link, Get Started, links to the Get Started page. The second link, Explore, links to the Featured Projects Page. The last link, Connect, links to a random project in the Welcoming Committee studio. This is shown until they upload their first project.

This is currently only for users with odd ID numbers.[1]
