Dustbin Topics are topics in the Scratch Discussion Forums used to store deleted posts in the Forums. They are accessible only by the Scratch Team, and will give HTTP 403 (Forbidden) errors if normal users or people without a Scratch account try to access posts in them. There are several major dustbin topics.
Topic 412, also known simply as the dustbin topic, is used for storing deleted posts. The thread can only be accessed by the Scratch Team. It has over 30,000 posts on it, making it the largest thread on the Scratch Forums.
Separate from the automatic censor dustbin and the normal dustbin, the Spam Dustbin is a topic that is located in its own “Spam Dustbin” sub-forum, similar to Topic 412 and the “Dustbin” sub-forum. The dustbin sub-forum is where commercial spam (e.g “Free Movies Online” and similar topics) is moved to. Commercial spam is not moved to Topic 412. The Spam Dustbin exists so that Community Moderators can analyze spamming patterns.
