The About me and What I'm working on boxes, as well as the profile picture, provide a few simple ways to customize one's own profile.
A user can hover their mouse over their user icon on their profile page to change it. The word change will appear on the top-left corner of the picture. When the picture is clicked, the user will be prompted to choose an image or a GIF on their computer, changing the picture to whatever is selected. The chosen image must be less than 500 pixels and 512 kilobytes.
|Note:||Depending on the size of the selected image, it may appear differently as a profile picture|
|Tip:||The image will be cropped into a square shape when selected, so it is recommended to crop one's image into a square before using it.|
"About Me" and "What I'm Working On" Sections
Every profile page contains two text boxes labeled About me and What I'm working on.
Many users write about themselves in their About Me boxes, describing their Scratch interests, off-Scratch interests, other accounts, or perhaps things they like about Scratch; this is entirely up to the user. The What I'm Working On section is generally used to talk about the user's current projects, their progress, or goals. Both text boxes have a 200 character limit.
Adding text in these two boxes isn't mandatory, but it can be helpful for viewers to know a little bit more about the Scratcher.
- Main article: Featured Project (Profile Page)
Next to the two text boxes is a labeled frame where a user can showcase one of their projects. The label, set to "Featured Project" by default, can be changed to any of the following:
- Featured Project
- Featured Tutorial
- Work in Progress
- Remix This!
- My Favorite Things
- Why I Scratch
The featured project defaults to the user's most recent one and changes when a new project is shared. To choose a different project or label, one must hover the mouse over the project currently in the Featured Project category and click on the black box marked change featured project that will appear on the top left corner. The user can then select their desired project and text.
