Why is everyone moving accounts all of a sudden?

I noticed this a while back. Everyone I know are moving accounts and I really don't see why. My friend keeps moving accounts and he won't tell me why. I can understand why people leave Scratch, such as personal issues or they feel like they've grown up, but I don't see why people would just move accounts.

Why is everyone moving accounts all of a sudden?

The way I see it, with corona spreading across the globe, lots of people have nothing to do. When they come back to their Scratch accounts, they may not like their username or projects anymore, and want to start off fresh and new.

That's an educated guess, though, and it may not be accurate.

Why is everyone moving accounts all of a sudden?

People want to have a fresh start, not have to be stuck with the cringey username they made when they were 9 and the really bad projects they made. They're doing it now more than ever because people are coming back to their old, cringey accounts and not wanting to have to live with those usernames anymore.

I think it is because people want a fresh start, and make new impressions. Maybe he or she did not like what he or she did in the past on scratch?

Hi! I have 2 months of experience in scratch( on different accounts). I love helping out, answering questions, and making projects! If you have any questions, please ask.
Have a nice day

Why is everyone moving accounts all of a sudden?

From what I've noticed discussing other questions related to Scratch's art/animation community, they do seem to move accounts a ton. These are people that sometimes stay on an account for a couple months and then move, so I don't think it's a case of thinking that their username that they made when they were 9 was cringey.

I guess it could be because their naming themselves off one of their OCs and want to switch to a different one, hence the switch of accounts? I do know someone who moved accounts whenever their primary fandom changed, and I think they're on their fifth account by this point.

Similarly, maybe they switched the type of projects they made? Like they started making more animations than games, so needed an account without “gamer” in the username. Or they started out making platformers, but then stopped.

That is so relatable.

I made a cringy username.

When I was nine, exactly.

Anyway, yup! That's one of the reasons people are moving accounts. I, myself, have considered moving accounts because of my cringey, (Why did I have to use those X's? ;-; ) confusing, (some people think my name is The Red Coder!) and semi-long (Come on, it's 15 characters!) username. I just haven't done it because I'm too lazy to notify my followers, friends and collaborators I collab with. XD

Same, I am moving to -Zyte-, because of the cringy username I have right now… And, my projects are starting to shift from mainly games, to mainly art.

Center tags are noice!

Oh, and did you know the color of this line of text is called skyblue?

I *love* formating!

The ST are evil dictators that harvest waffles from the users of Scratch.

And, how did you see this part? Ctrl-Shift-Down? Probably.

I think your username is great! It's not like mine which absolutely the worst . But I'm not changing accounts because I don't want to lose almost everything I've ever done on Scratch.
