I'm not able to access any devices except for my school iPad that blocks most sites, including compression sites. I'm sorry about this inconvenience. (I am well aware that I am talking to a bot. I just don't want it to look like I'm purposelg posting a lot of images without compressing them.)

Essays

Hi, I came across your "Thoughts on Suggestions" essay and really liked it. I agree with all the points on there and appreciate the thought you put into that. A few fun historical facts that reminded me of though are that 1. the "support"/"no support" thing (with no further explanation) actually was the norm in the 1.x days and early 2.0 days and 2. in the old days, April Fools didn't really involve people posting joke topics, just some easter eggs around the website.

In general I like the essay format on the Wiki and am glad to see it catching on. It lends itself to covering more material than a forum post or project and more completely covering a given topic. My essays are basically all related to questions/complaints I see come up a lot on Scratch and the Wiki to which I feel a short form answer in a forum post or talk page message isn't sufficient to cover it.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 01:03, 15 May 2023 (UTC)

I agree. I love the idea. I used to make similar essays on my alt, @Gliffe, but I'm starting to lean more toward the Wiki formatting. I think there are just some assets to the Wiki that aren't possible (at least, to the same effect) much of anywhere else, namely the way that you can divide different sections.
In forum posts, you can't make guides, so any forum post covering a topic you want to address must be related to the topic (and at that point, you're not directly addressing the user, just using their topic as an excuse to say what you want). And in projects, you have to put in extra work to advance slides, or make it look more polished -- both of which are inconvenient when you're trying to get a simple point across. Not to mention, I use the internet on a mobile device.
Basically I want to thank you for giving me this idea in the first place. Maybe I should have been more vocal about this. I really like the idea, and it inspired me to do what I did.

Is one of the links in your Franchise Verboten essay incorrect?

In that essay, you stated you linked to a suggestion on restricting DDLC content, although it links to a Korean topic with only two posts by one user. Could you correct it?
Jammum Icon.png Jammum (💬 Talk - ✍️ Contribs - 🐱 Scratch) 18:55, 20 July 2023 (UTC)

That's interesting. Yeah, I tried to copy out the link by hand, so that probably explains it. I will fix it very soon. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

Your Papercut Misconception essay

Hi, Ved here. I've read your Papercut Misconception essay, and I agree with most of your views. I've got about 7 papercuts in my life, and I've only bled by one papercut. But, I haven't really seen any people 'making a fountain of blood erupting from a papercut' in my scratch history. Most of the blood in projects I've seen are

  • A inappropriate blood use with the character in a pool of blood [driven by a gun, sword, etc] driven] P.S. I reported it and it got taken down
  • A blood particle effect [no visual wounds/blood, just red dots coming from the character]
  • Representation of the human circulatory system.

To your solution, I mostly agree, but I would tell someone a small, thin red line or red dots is okay if it's not on the face [blood on faces tends to give people nightmares] What you're saying in the article is actually better, but sometimes a sign of injury is needed in some projects to represent that the character has gotten hurt [I would give a ref, but the scratcher in question left scratch and deleted all projects], because putting them unconcious is more scary for some people.

Btw, I might start doing essays here someday. They'll probably be inspired by yours.
SpiderLogo.png Vdiu | Talk | Contributions | Scratch Profile 10:04, 22 July 2023 (UTC)

Thanks for reaching out to me.
To answer your first point, I have seen projects where users bleed excessively from papercuts. I have specific examples in mind, but I can't link them on the wiki because they're inappropriate. Even though this is a rare issue, it still disgusted me -- and probably several others too -- so I think this point's existence is valid.
And hey, I'll consider adding that bit in to the solution. I just feel a bit uncomfortable about adding it because this is the first I'm hearing of this. I would like to hear a Scratch Team reaponse first.
And thank you! I'd be looking forward to reading your essays.

Love the new Essay.

Hi, I was reading your new November 30: A Crucial Update essay and as you said I found it interesting. I especially agree with the part about assets. I'm glad to see some calmer opinions on the subject of assets being removed. I'm honored to see my topic made it in. Great job!

Also I started on the "Scratch isn't Wechat" essay this morning and will keep writing when I get home and have access to the Google doc I'm writing in. It should be out next week.

Thank you very much! I'm looking forward to reading your essay. The way you described it, it sounds not only like an interesting essay but a necessary one.
SSB Icon New.png Super_Scratch_Bros20 (talk / contribs) 19:51, 4 December 2023 (UTC)

Another Great Essay

I read your Can Education Be Generic essay and I agree with a lot of the points. I think that something you've done well in this essay and the previous one is offering a calm opinion on a subject that often escalates to the point of near flame war.

Thank you! I try to address current, controversial issues and respectfully share what I think is correct. I'm glad you appreciate my work.

2 things:

1. Page needs a massive rework, so... Quote Icon.png Hello, Super_Scratch_Bros20! As an editor who has yet to participate in the discussion, you are invited to participate in the discussion at [[1]]. This is not mandatory, but your thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks, and have a good day!

2. I need help with my upcoming rant about Wikipe-tan. I'd be open on my talk page, as it's easier to get the notif than to check my watchlist a billion times.

1. I can help with updating the sandbox page later as I'm interested in this topic.
2. I left you a message.

Essay Idea

I'm not sure if this should go into an essay category or rant, but I had this idea after reading a cheddargirl post that contained this:

"If you perceived the rules to be excessively strict, what were your reasons for staying instead of moving to a community elsewhere with a similar scope (e.g. Snap!, GameMaker, etc.) or using the offline editor?"

In my opinion, this is really thought-provoking. Here are my thoughts on this, and some other scattered, related thoughts:

I totally agree. There are many coding languages that are more advanced, less strict, and allow a broader scope of projects. But there are problems with this:

1. These platforms can contain quite a bit of content that you may not want to see. 2. They could be too complex and require HOURS of tutorials for the simplest projects. 3. These platforms can be offline entirely, which can make users turn to CDcord and stuff like that for help. 4. Lack of a kid-friendly community entirely, filled with adults. 5. Controversial decisions by the owners, such as Unity and Roblox, which are mainly marketed towards mid-level devs.

So my essay idea is "What can you gain from Scratch that you can't gain from other communities. What do you think?
Co0lcr34t10ns (talk | contribs) 00:00, 16 December 2023 (UTC)

I might end up doing that at some point because I agree, that is an intriguing idea for an essay. I will say, though, that when I make an essay, it's usually because I hold a controversial or underrated opinion about Scratch that I want to convince others to share. However, it might be nice to break out of the loop for once and get a bit more personal.
I will say, though, that as a rule of thumb, the person who comes up with the essay idea will generally have the most interesting -- or at least passionate -- essay overall. So I think you should make an essay on this as well. I'd love to read it, actually. You seem like a person with a lot of fascinating scattered thoughts. I think you and I would both like the final draft of your essay.
SSB Icon New.png Super_Scratch_Bros20 (talk / contribs) 00:20, 16 December 2023 (UTC)
Alright, thanks for the feedback! I'll do that after I finish Scratch-tan, which I'll do over the weekend.
