A Studio Trend is a trend that is created through a studio. Unlike project trends, some studio trends aren't spread to other studios and only spread in the original studio. These studios commonly have goals, for example, adding a certain number of managers before a certain time.

Trends

Add Everything

Main article: Add Everything Studios

An Add Everything studio allows all projects to be added no matter what genre or style it is. They have random thumbnails from cats to dancing characters and usually have a goal of how many projects to reach (now combated with the project number system change). This trend is controversial and resulted in many protests. However, it has inspired similar trends such as 'Add All Curators' and 'Add All Comments'.

Add All Curators

Add All Curators studios are a variation of Add Everything studios, and are also controversial. However, instead of adding as many projects as possible, the goal of the studio is to add as many curators as possible. Some people think these types of studios are annoying,[citation needed] as they spam their notifications with studio invites. A slight variation includes managers instead of curators, where everyone is promoted as a manager upon joining.

Role Playing

Main article: Role-Playing Game

Role-Playing Games (also known as RPGs) are often played in studios, where it is played in the comments and the biographies are posted. Some of the most popular role-playing studios are based on media (for example, Eragon, Warriors, Doctor Who, etc.), while some are from the creator's imagination (for example, Anthros, Jigglers, Goitz, etc.).

Celebration Studios

These studios are widely popular around Scratch. Basically, when a Scratcher reaches their 50th follower, 100th follower, etc. mark, they can celebrate by throwing a celebration studio. Normally, the owner of the studio throws out a list of fun ideas that they might try. Such as Art Requests, or Art Trades, and sometimes even Q&A. These are sometimes known as milestone studios, too.

Car Companies

Car company studios are fictional car "companies" where participants will draw and design cars and add the company logo to the project with the car, and publish and add it to the respective studio. Car company studios have possibly started with a studio by the Spanish user Hugo_Oyon, with the Declasse studio.[1] The studios were expanded after Hugo_Oyon and another car-liking user xXLamboFanXx started a studio entitled "LFM Automotive",[2] a studio made for more car designs. The first LFM model was entitled the LFM Primero.[3] Several other designs came soon after, including remixes of the Primero, which now has over 65 remixes,[4] and after a short while, a few more users joined LFM Automotive. A few users made their own companies, while other users also made sections such as Linos Tuning Co.[5] and Marina Motors.[6] There are also a few groupings of two companies such as LamboFan-SomeChevys Motors.[7] There are also branches for things like trailers.[8]

Can we Reach ______ Managers Before _____?

'Can we reach _____ managers before _____?' studios set a challenge if the studio can reach a certain number of managers before a certain year. These studios invite as many users as fast as they can.

Controversy

Many users oppose or dislike these types of studios. Some find them annoying because they clog up people's inboxes with studio activity, or because they think that they are pointless. Multiple Scratchers have suggested to ban these kinds of studios (as well as 'Add everything!' studios and 'Add all curators!' studios), but the Scratch Team chose not to as they are ultimately harmless.

#UnbanScratch/#FreeScratch

After the banning of Scratch in China on August 14, 2020, Scratcher garnet-chan made a studio protesting the ban. The studio got over 15 curators in a day and 12 followers.

The purpose of the studio is to convince Scratchers to peacefully protest the ban by remixing a project in the studio and putting #UnbanScratch in their About Me or forum signature.

Another studio, called #FreeScratch, was made earlier on the same day by the scratcher -FreeScratch-, who later turned out to be Scratcher -InsanityGames-. This studio was less popular, but was also protesting against the ban by having their members include or change their profile picture to the owner's, -FreeScratch-.

Controversy

Some users (mostly Chinese) are against #UnbanScratch and #FreeScratch, because a law passed in 2017 requires them to "support national intelligence work".[9]

Invite for Prizes

Some users have created studios that, when people invite others, they get prizes (for example, 20 invites for 2 follows). This has been widely looked down upon in the Scratch community[citation needed], and may be fake, due to the fact that most of these studios change the name to something else, not actually giving you any prizes, making it look like a lot of people support the studio.[citation needed] Loves, favourites, follows, and other social actions are not allowed to be prizes as they manipulate community statistics.

BLM/#BlackLivesMatter

Another recent trend is based on the past happenings in the world, the Black Lives Matter protesting. Scratchers have made many studios supporting Black Lives Matter, and honoring George Floyd. These studios are supported by the Scratch Team and are becoming a new studio trend.

Unnoticed Scratchers

A common type of studio is an "Unnoticed Scratchers" studio. These kind of studios invite almost each and every Scratcher and encourage them to add their underrated projects. This continues, thus making the projects very popular due to the vast network of the users. These are quite similar to "Add everything" studios, but have a few differences.

The ____________ Of Scratch

One of the other studio trends is the _____________ of Scratch. They can be anything ranging from bakers to athletes. These studios invite all the _________ on Scratch and encourage them to add _______{ing} related things. A few examples are:

  • The bakers of Scratch
  • The athletes of Scratch
  • The authors of Scratch.

There are a lot more, which have often been featured.

Dress up Studios

Dress up studios are studios that add dressing up games. These studios are often "Allow everyone to add projects" that allow everyone to curate and add their dress up projects. They sometimes also encourage adding _____ creators, which are similar to dress ups.

Icon makers

These are often part of dress up studios, but can also be added to a separate studio. In these studios, most of the projects are icon makers or design your own ________.

Armies

Another of the studio trends is an ______ army. Commonly, it's about an animal, game character (like Sans, Mario, Sonic, etc.), thing, etc. It has state armies and enemy armies.
