This serves as a staging area for the new flawed article that users will use when they request an account. Studio has been decided on as the topic for the new flawed article, and a draft of the new flawed article is available on this page.
Note that to keep this cohesive, prevent an inordinate amount of flaws from being present, and make sure that admins handling account requests keep track of all the flaws, this page has been protected. You may suggest changes on the talk page.
Writing an account request should ideally take less than five minutes but still require some investment of effort. To that end, we want to make sure the article has a significant number of flaws that are not overly difficult to find and also has a significant number of things that could be added. However, we do not want to make the article so poorly written that someone can find all the flaws instantly.
The article needs to have an introduction and a significant amount of content that a real article about the chosen subject would have. However, the article should not be extremely long. The current flawed article is a good reference for the length that the new article should be.
The article should have no more than two flaws per type of flaw identified in the account request instructions, and ideally not more than one of each kind for most kinds. There is not a requirement that there be a flaw of every kind listed. However, there should be significantly more flaws than the three required to be identified. Flaws also should not be overly obscure.
There should be at least one thing that could reasonably added from each category.
The following topics were suggested as a basis for the new flawed article:
Ultimately, Studio was chosen.
A studio is a place where users can put multiple projects into an accessible group. Prior to Scratch 2.0, they were called galleries, and had some different features. I think the previous name is better. Most studios have a specific theme of projects.
The word "studio" is borrowed from same word in Italian (meaning "place of study"), and the Italian turn originates from the Latin "studium" which means "study."
A new studio can be created on one's My Stuff page by clicking the New Studio button. A blank studio will be created with the name Untitled Studio, with the user creating the studio being set as the manager and owner.
There are two ways to add projects to a studio. You can either add a project by slecting "Browse Projects" within the studio or clicking "Studios" on a project page.
Managers may remove any project from a studio, while curators may only remove projects they added and anyone may remove their own project.
In 2021, studios were updated in a way that makes them much worse. In particular the 25 comment limit was only added in order to make it harder to have any dialogue. Also managers lost the ability to edit the descripton and New Scratchers could no longer create studios. They were updated to the Scratch 3.0 design, but it looks a lot worse than the old one. The Scratch Team has announced that in response to the criticism that the new studio pages have received, they will go back to the old studio design.
These are some example studios, and you should follow them!
