The credits tab.

The Project Credits feature was a way for Scratchers to credit people who helped with the project. It would also be where the copyright and remix notices went. Only the sharer of a project or member of the Scratch Team would be able to edit the project credits — this is to avoid false information and to ease the project owner. This could all be found by clicking the "Credits" tab on the right of a project's page.

Editing

Project credits can be edited by clicking on the existing credits on a project owned by oneself. It would change the text of the credits into an HTML textarea, with the old credits inside. Below it were the "save" and "cancel" buttons.

Common Uses

Project credits were generally used for mentioning people who helped in the creation of the project. This included people who gave ideas for the project, or the media (sprites, costumes, sounds, etc.) used. It was used any time a Scratcher wished to give credit.

For other things, such as information about the project, the project notes could be used.

Replacement

The Project Credits tab is not a feature in projects on the Scratch 2.0 Website. Instead, Project Notes has been renamed to "Notes and Credits" to remind Scratchers to give credit. When remixing a project, the Notes and Credits box will automatically be outlined with blue while it is blank, telling the remixer to thank the original project owner and any other contributors.

Extra

This is not available in Scratch 2.0, however, there is something like it. For example, the remix button is a good way to use a project, edit it (or make it better) and then give credit.
