Hey, I joined in 2010! Is that really true??

Of course you are, noob! JK. I've never seen anyone call a '10er or '11er that, so I don't know if that information is correct.

I was using scratch in 2009, but got my account in 2010. What does that make me?

This isn't a discussion about what your status is; it's about that sentence.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 15:53, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
Changed the sentence - it might have been true in 2009 (lol), but it's definitely not anymore. It was quite offensive, anyway...

I remember when I joined- 2010, and I looked something up on the forums soon after I got my account. :P
Looks better now. :)

I'm homechooled and used WinVista...

...and I'm really glad about that. XD

Usually there is not much friction between these categories, although some arguments have been created. Some older Scratchers complain about the '09ers and later becoming famous through art projects, rather than doing any programming. Older Scratchers have been accused of this but not as frequently.

– The page

I've also noticed arguments get pretty heated sometimes between homeschooled and non-homechooled members, along with ones who disagree on the better OS. Should that be included as arguments that happen often? The homeschooling arguments aren't as often, but they happen. Try searching for "Windows or Mac". Arguments about browsers also happen.

Hmm I see some of these arguments a lot too :/ I agree :)

Improvement

I think this article could be improved a lot. There are many things about the Scratch Community (stats such as age groups, diversity, countries, etc.). This one seems to suggest we're a bunch of rowdy argument-loving people using Scratch... Anyone wanna suggest new sections? I'll add in statistics tomorrow, I'm tired today. :)

Well, 2 months later, I have to say that I get that same impression. What do you guys think about maybe asking Scratchers for quotes about how the community feels to them? We'd probably need both a project and a forum thread to get fair representation.

Should this go on the community portal?
MoreGamesNow (talk | contribs) 19:14, 30 June 2012 (UTC)
No, it looks like it's about this article.
Go for it! This article could certainly be expanded.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 19:17, 30 June 2012 (UTC)
What do you think? The message is essentially the same on each. Should I change anything?

Does someone more familiar with collabs that I want to add a section on that?

Quotes

I'm not so sure about having a quotes section like that, especially with only a few quotes. :/
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 09:21, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

I don't agree with it there either; it's not really the place in a wiki page and it's a biased selection (all quotes are by fairly active current forum users, ignoring users that don't go on the main site and users that have either left or been banned).
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 16:08, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
As I biased as the quotes are, they seem (to me) to more accurately reflect the community than an article about who divided a community we are. Would you prefer more quotes from the main site? I made a project for the main site that got 16 views and 1 comment xD.
MoreGamesNow (talk | contribs)
Yes, to you they may represent what the site means to you but that isn't the case for other people. And I really just don't think they belong on a wiki page, biased or not. It's something that really differs across people and it doesn't make any sense just to select a few people to quote, no matter how big the selection pool.
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 16:59, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I understand. Removed.

Bias?

Is it just me, or does this article seem to be much more positive toward the wiki community than any other branch of the community?

Perhaps when I wrote that I was bias a bit.
