Scratch
ScratchlogoHD.png
"It's like Newgrounds and DeviantArt, but made poorly for the kids."
a.k.a.: scratch.mit.edu
Type of site: Programming
Learning
Language: Various
Created by: Mitchel Resnick
Andrés Monroy-Hernández
Owner: Scratch Team
Date of launch: 2003 (early prototypes),
2007 (proper release)
Status: Online

Scratch is a free visual programming language developed by the MIT Media Lab, and launched in 2007. Scratch was created to help young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.

Bad Qualities

  1. Extremely poor moderation, with some people getting banned for no reason or for some of the dumbest. In fact, saying something as little as "crap" could get you banned, and even if you try to appeal, they will just send you an email to ask your parents, but what if you are an adult?
    • Similarly to DeviantArt, if a project is reported enough times, then it will automatically get taken down without warning. This being an example. The user even got permanently banned just for resharing it.
    • They banned a user called Stoppunchingme (the creator of Sonic 2: Expanded) just because another user impersonated him, however he is active on the "theREALspm".
    • They took down a project, Multiplayer Minecraft Cloud, just because people could build blocks in the shape of letters.
    • They unfairly banned some users on May 29th because they contributed to the now-closed Crummy Scratchers Wiki which they falsely claimed it was made to gossip or insult Scratchers even though it was made to help users improve just like how this wiki exists to help webmasters improve.
    • Even worse, the Scratch Team said they would unban all users if they didn't archive their pages to the Wayback Machine, which the banned users did before they were told that pages can't be archived, making all those bans unfair. To make things even more horrendous, TPRisesAgain (a "popular" user) might end his Scratch career if he is banned permanently. This might cause him to lose all of his fame. However, Miraheze, Scratch, and the Internet Archive are working to delete the archives.
    • Also, this shows their hypocrisy as they have a page on Kaj on their official wiki which by their standards, classifies as gossip.
    • There are a bunch of projects that have swear words in them, yet they aren't banned.
    • One time, a project by mondina18 (now banned) had NSFW Artwork of the Loud House family hidden, that was on the website since 2016 until it was reported in 2018. The project that had it was called KateBob PerskyPants: Too Much Sauce, in which many remixes still had the image but some had the image removed.
    • Sometimes, reporting a project does not work and it will kept on the site. Despite some of them breaking the rules, the only way to report it to the Scratch Team without the report button is to contact the Scratch Team via email (despite them ignoring them), or to report it publicly to the forums (while you risk a alert) it can help the Scratch Team notice it better.
    • If you include a few words that relates to inappropriate content on comments even if you are explaining to a user about it, you will be muted for 5 minutes. (it will double)
  2. They also ignore ban appeals, even after the day where unbanning is possible.
  3. Its community is one of the SINGLE most infuriating and toxic communities around, opinion lashing is rampant, too many spammers and trolls, left-wing bias is everywhere, and you'll be attacked for having a right-wing ideology. Even a moderator once banned a user for being conservative.
    • One infamous example is the Numberblocks community. Where they singlehandedly ruined the site's reputation by a-logging various users (such as Bubbleyay1234) and troll feed (users like KaiWang65).
    • One user in the community even told someone to get the Coronavirus for criticizing the show and the Scratch Team did nothing about them!
    • They often leave inappropriate comments such as "kill yourself" and "you suck". They often get away with it with no punishment at all too.
    • There have also been many complaints about a bunch of impersonation accounts/copied profiles.
    • The ever-so infamous user Kaj threatened to ruin Scratch.
    • Even worse, they don't have a feature where you can block other Scratchers from communicating with you, which means trolls can get to you more easily.
    • Before 2.0, they actually did have one, but they removed it.
  4. The Scratch Team has lied to their community multiple times. Such as them saying that they wont take down your FNAF project if its kid friendly, as well as them saying that the changes to the project editor layout would make it easier to use, however it did the exact opposite.
  5. Many awful projects.
    • Too many reskins with OC's.
    • Many projects that aren't bad fan games are either extremely bland or stolen/unoriginal/reposts.
    • There is so much art on the site some people call Scratch the next DeviantArt.
  6. Remixing is a horrible system. There has been controversy over "stealing" art, and although making an exact copy is not allowed, and should be reported, any change makes it a legitimate remix. All you have to do to make it valid is to make just a single recolor or change any credit from the original creator to yours, and it will work. To make matters worse, there is no way to disable remixing, since the Scratch Team encourages it.
    • One of the largest complaints is about recolors (such as Brosses and Simplumen), because some users feel that recoloring an art project or just changing the character sprite in a game, or similar changes, should not qualify as remixes.
    • Plus, half of the time, the remixer says "None" in notes and credits.
    • There are remixes that only intend to steal the project by changing any reference to the original creator to their username. They are also still allowed for some reason despite being stated it is discouraged.
    • Scratch Has done Nothing to remove stolen projects by users such as TycoonNoob123, KeyboardCat1984, and dgf3. Thankfully all of the ones mentioned have stopped (expect for the last one)
    • Speaking of dgf3, Unlike the other ones mentioned in the previous reason, dgf3 stole the projects by downloading them and then importing them to a blank project, so the project page wont say that they are remixes.
  7. Speaking of stealing, there are many examples of people stealing memes too. An example is -SAUS-, he banked off a meme he didn't make and caused -BreadMan- to get banned because of advertising his Discord, which is hypocritical because when -SAUS- came back after a year, he started to advertise his NSFW YT channel.
  8. There are several updates that completely ruined the site. Some examples include the new search (which, when introduced, removed the ability to search for forum topics or users), and the Tips button replacing the Discuss and Help buttons. By the way, the tips can be accessed in the project editor, giving no reason for this button and page to exist.
    • Speaking of the old search, Scratch said they removed the old search because it uses Google which can't be used by Scratchers in China, but that does not explain why it can't search users or forums. Also, recently Scratch got banned in China, so the only way for someone in China to use Scratch is to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN), however if they use a VPN then they will also be able to use Google, making the new search feature completely pointless now.
    • They removed the recent projects section, which makes it harder to find unpopular projects in turn.
  9. The staff usually never listens to their community on any bad updates or issues. You can even get an alert just for having a different opinion over a staff member.
  10. The moderators encourage practices that the community otherwise frowns upon. For example, F4F is never taken care of as if the Scratch Team actually promotes it and pointless remixes are everywhere yet the Scratch Team only takes them down and does nothing else to fix it.
  11. The moderators also encourage awful trends. For example, there was a Lyrics Taken Literally trend that took over trending with projects. It died out quickly. There is also "add yourself", which is infamous for basically being remixing a project, adding in a crappy OC or recolor and that's it! They are unoriginal, bland, and basically consist of "Add yourself (adjective) (noun)". Another thing is that there are also a lot of grounded videos, which are old nowadays, and the moderators don't even care if there are those on this website either.
  12. Inconsistent censor. The site has the audacity to censor words in comments and then not censor certain words (like racial slurs) in the forums. However, this may be because of the limitations of Django, the software used on the forums. Also, you can type swear words in the project editor and it doesn't even censor them! Alongside this, due to limitations, it cannot censor sound effects with swearing.
    • They recently banned Discord on their site and they're censoring the word on projects, descriptions, and comments.
    • Also, while if you do something like make a Five Nights at Freddy's (FNAF) project, you will not get banned, if you even mention Discord or Amino, they can ban you without warning. This also happens if you refer the word "Discord" to the villain from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic or the literal meaning of "discord" for the former, or referring to amino acids for the latter.
    • They permanently banned a popular user named NightCat28 for mentioning the site. There is even a studio made about it.
    • They have horrible ways of removing things that are trends on the site. They always remove FNAF projects even if they have no jumpscares or scary parts, if you report a FNAF project it is destined to get banned, they also ban searching up words like "Freddy" despite the fact that people are actually named Freddy in real life. They can even ban you just for having a FNAF character as your profile even if it's a still image and not a jumpscare.
    • When it was announced that FNAF games were banned, they deleted anyone's reply if the reply was not happy about the update and it is proven by how there are replies to deleted posts that say things that are not positive about the update. This shows that they can't take criticism.
    • They have even confirmed that they dont always look at FNAF Projects when taking them down if reported.
    • A User named got a ban warning just for saying "Check your school email".
    • They took down a project just because it was about a YouTuber and Scratch put it as if it was stolen from the YouTube. (As shown here)
  13. Terrible filtering. When using the text-to-speech extension, you can't type swear words, but it is laughably easy to get around, as you can literally put a space, replace a letter or repeat one anywhere in the word and it will go through.
  14. You can't have an honest opinion on a project since the Scratch Team will consider it "unfriendly".
  15. Speaking of the Scratch Team considering something unfriendly, they will take down projects talking about stuff that happened as they will consider it disrespecting and will tell you to tell the scratchers to not do something instead which makes no sense.
  16. Many good Scratchers have been leaving or getting banned for no reason, and the good Scratchers who are still alive barely get on anymore and make content.
    • Some Scratch users left after the launch of Scratch 3.0, their reason being that 3.0 lacked features that 2.0 had, and also the horrendous stability of 3.0 at that point.
  17. It has awful policies like no advertising user scripts and extensions, which led to massive controversy.
  18. The site is also pretty buggy as well. You can follow yourself, change a thumbnail to any other file (including animated GIFs), and even once there was an API security risk on the forums that affected many users. It also crashes a lot, and this especially happened a lot back in April 2020.
  19. For a few days in late-July 2020, most keywords showed no results, due to overloading servers.
    • The overloading servers were due to the coronavirus, which increased site activity.
  20. The version that succeeded Scratch 2.0, 3.0, is just mostly inferior to its previous version and worst of all it is even more glitchy than 2.0.
    • When 3.0 came out, tons of sprites and projects became broken.
    • In 3.0, You can no longer import images to projects without them being automatically converted to bitmap, which causes them to be in lower quality.
    • Some examples of broken sprites are the pre-Scratch 3.0 PTEs by -Rex-, and the Human 1.0 characters.
    • It also takes up more memory than usual, and long-list items were cut off, yet the moderators do nothing to fix the broken sprites and projects and reduce memory.
    • They removed the magic wand feature in 3.0.
    • While they did change the way selecting audio works in 3.0 where if you were selecting parts of audio then it was have to have to start from either the end or the start of the audio back, when they did that they removed many of the effects and edits you could do to audio, it is unknown why they removed them.
    • While you can still see remix trees if you have a link to one, scratch removed the button to find them on projects in 3.0.
    • The website layout is not consistent. Some parts are in 3.0, but the rest is in 2.0.
  21. If you get blocked for doing something on an alternate account, you must wait about 30 days after the latter gets unbanned to use your main account.
  22. While it is cool that you can put online multiplayer in your game, you must not be a "new Scratcher" to be able to use the online mode, to have the normal scratcher status on your profile you must do several things and then wait 24 hours.

Good Qualities

  1. The site, as mentioned earlier, can be a good start for people who want to code.
    • It's easy to understand and learn.
  2. There are some great projects on the site, with some showing off complex coding and some interesting concepts. There is even a whole wiki about it.
  3. There are plenty of helpful users on the forums if you want additional programming help.
  4. You can see what's inside every project, which can sometimes be helpful if you don't know how to program something in Scratch.
  5. Some improvements have at least been done in Scratch updates. For example, Scratch 2.0 added support for vector sprites.
  6. The site was better in the past, probably before Scratch 2.0 came out.
  7. There were a few glitches fixed by 3.0.
  8. Some of the worst Scratchers have been banned from the site.
  9. One of the only things that 3.0 changed that was changed back was the change so that if you were selecting parts of audio then it was have to have to start from either the end or the start of the audio.
  10. Even though the "New Scratchers" status ruins it for new users, games can have online multiplayer.

In my opinion, Scratch is more like the next Quotev (even though Scratch isn’t a quiz/story/poll site), since they ban people unfairly like what Quotev does, and that it’s become more toxic like Quotev. Just my opinion, but I’m okay with others saying that Scratch is the next DeviantArt.

NOTE: This is not meant to offend the Scratch Team, the Ipzy Icon Fandom, or Life_Tutor.
To me, the Ipzy Icon Fandom (the most toxic icon army) is similar to an authoritarian regime because of them not handling criticism, being biased with opinions, and for opinion lashing on me and BobRocks20.

The Scratch Team is similar to a hybrid regime for corrupt moderation, terrible history of false alerts and bans, and tons of manipulation, despite some of the worst Scratchers being banned.

The SRW members are similar to a full democracy due to them handling criticism, and for them being mature.

I remember I joined this site back in 2013. I was Mayahzdog09/cutedog1997. Most of the stuff I made was fucking horrible, I used to recolour other people's art (though all of my recoloured projects are unshared now), and I also was an attention-seeker back then. I started becoming less active on the site in middle school. I'm now learning some CSS/HTML, which may help me go for more advanced coding languages. I might as well start making a project explaining why I'm leaving this website behind, since I basically grew out of it a few years ago.

Oh cool, you're here. Agreed that the Scratch Team moderation is bullshit. Last month, I received the most bans/alerts, most of them unfair, and some go to the extent of unbelievable.

My account, PrinevilleOregon, was blocked for having an "inappropriate username." WHAT THE ABSOLUTE FUCK IS INAPPROPRIATE ABOUT IT?

Let me say I was PISSED when my 2-year-old account got permablocked for the TINIEST of reasons. I'm still getting alerts on my account to this day that a project of mine got taken down.

I'm so pissed right now. They basically IP banned me for the same reasons.

FNAF isn't the only thing Scratch banned. I'm pretty sure they also don't allow Ugandan Knuckles memes.

I think it depends on what they've done. The ST may be really dumb, but not dumb enough to ban someone for their political stance. If they said "I'M SMARTER THAN DUMB LIBERALS LIKE YOU," I probably would have banned them, but if they said "Hello, I'm a conservative by the way," I wouldn't. But then again, I've seen unbelievable bans and warnings, so it could be possible.

Sanvisoo3568, CryingChild1983, me, Evvie_Navy, Alina-BlueSoul. Who's next for the ST to erroneously ban?

I hate the fact that Scratch bans people over their opinions. That is one of the main reasons why I hate Scratch.

They also get salty with any evidence that exposes them. I made a rant called "Scratch Breaking Their Own Rules," and it never showed up in search until over 100 people viewed it.

Are they're any Scratch alts that aren't Snap or Code? Because Snap makes me want to Snap on how weird it feels.

To be honest, I'm fucking scared to appeal my account PrinevilleOregon. It was banned unfairly for so-called "having an inappropriate username," like, how the fuck is it inappropriate? But last month, I received so many warnings and blocks, and my only ever permanent ban (PrinevilleOregon). There are friends on my side trying to help me get it back, but I'm worried that if I contact them about the problem, they might ban me on all of my accounts forever, or even delete them.

And no, I don't swear on Scratch. Don't cancel me because of comments I made on other websites.

...and the sad part is, they let MaddieManges get away with her toxic behavior (she also A-logged Bubbleyay1234) like she's a Karma Houdini. The Popular Mean Girl trope best describes her.

The main reason was for being disrespectful, to which they linked no comment. The other reasons were messages I got a week ago that are also unfair. Wanting self-harm, which is a copypasta in my community, as seen by a reply saying "humour," and for saying I reported someone. I never got reported for that until then. That was the nicest way I ever said it, yet that was the only one I got reported for, and the one that got me banned.

ST: Oh hey, we will leave your remix with one or no changes up on the site.

Also ST: Your remix has more than five changes? Die!
