Helpful Tips For You & Your Scratch Account



Everyone wants views on their projects, and to get popular. Nobody wants cyberbullying or mean and disrespectful comments. This guide and list of tips may help solve problems stated in topics like these ones:

- “My work isn't being noticed.”
- “How do I prevent cyberbullying?”
- “How can I become popular?”

Here is a guide and list of tips for you and how to be a great Scratcher!


Tips for Getting Project Views

Add your projects to studios
Adding your projects to studios can help get more views on your project, because studio projects tend to be noticed more. Make sure that your project is related to the studio you put it in.

Make a custom thumbnail
A “thumbnail” is the preview of the project you see before you click on it. This can attract more users to look at your project, and can help people understand what your project is about, depending on the thumbnail. Remember to keep the thumbnail appropriate and following the Community Guidelines. Here is an example of a project thumbnail:



Tell others about your projects on the “Show and Tell” forum section
On the “Show and Tell” forum, users can create topics telling others about their projects. This can help spread the word of your work, and more people can see it. To get more attention to your thread, make a good title, add some images, and use good spelling/grammar. Another way to do this is in your signature, which automatically appears below your posts. You can find more information about a signature here. Don't advertise on forum sections other than “Show and Tell.”



Tips on Getting More Popular

- Take your time and make good projects.
- View other people's projects.
- Give helpful feedback.
- Talk to others.
- Help out on the forums.
- Be nice and active.
- Participate in events.

Doing these might help you get more recognized on Scratch, have a good reputation, and people will look up to you for help.



Tips to Avoid Online Fights/Cyberbullying

- If someone comments something bad or mean, don't respond, then report it to let the Scratch Team know.

- Don't give in to the bully. When you do that, it will be more fun for them and they will keep doing it. Don't reply, it might cause a fight.

- If the incident needs more explanation, use “Contact Us” instead. You can provide more detailed notes about what happened, and a moderator can do something about it.



Tips for Help Using Scratch

If you ever need help using Scratch, here is a list of forum sections to use depending on what topic you have:

- For help making projects, use Help with Scripts.
- If you have any questions related to Scratch, use Questions About Scratch.
- If you ran out of ideas for projects, use Project Ideas.
- For help on fixing bugs/glitches, use Bugs and Glitches.
- If you are looking for something (such as sprites or music), use Requests.
- If you want to work together on a project, use Collaboration.

Notice: This thread isn't the place to post advertisements. Create your own thread to do that instead. To do that, click the blue “New Topic” button at the top-right corner of the Show and Tell forum section.
Thanks for reading! I hope you were helped by this.
Please post any suggestions or questions you have.

Nice guide! I hope we can find room for it in our rather over-crowded sticky section.

One suggestion for improvement - the part on forum sections at the bottom - those section names could be links to the actual sections. Just a thought

Scroll down towards the bottom of the discussion homepage, and on the bottom left there should be a button that says "Show your topics/posts.“ Click on ”posts" and it should show all of your posts and say the exact number of posts you have.
