The Scratch extension/mod/whatever Imageshare isn't working for me! It says to remove all tags, but when I do that it just turns into a regular old link. I've gotten Imageshare to work once before, but I can't get it to work again! What should I do?
Do you mean imageshare by comp09? The ST removed it from the whitelist

That's sad! Why did they do that? Is there a substitute program that I can use?

Neat site! It has led us to reflect on our image hosting policy.

After some thought, we have decided to remove Modshare and Futuresight from the list of acceptable image hosting services for Scratch. For the safety and privacy of Scratch users, we feel it is most appropriate to only allow well-established image hosting services such as ImageShack and Cubeupload.

It is still totally fine to link to Modshare projects or other Futuresight pages from the forums; they just won’t work as image hosts.
ImageShare used a subdomain of Mod Share and therefore it could be used even though it wasn't explicitly added to the image host whitelist.

I hate to spoil it, but you can't curate projects just yet. I want to curate projects too.

Wow. Three years ago I practically lived on this forum! It's strange to come back and see that Scratch (and therefore AT) has changed so much! I find myself pretty much as clueless to the discussions as when I first joined! I'm glad I popped my head in again though!

Ooh, this looks cool!

Does anyone else like to edit with Inspect Element? I wonder how much you could do with that?

Wow! Amazing! I had no idea how to do Scratch Modifications until this. I know the basics of JavaScript, but I didn't know the others existed!!!

Would you mind filling out this survey on community knowledge about the Requests forum? Thanks so much!

Be moist.

Github isn't code. It is a website that allows you to store your code and share it with others.

Welcome to the Advanced Topics!
Feel like saying hello? Introduce yourself in a reply below!

The A(dvanced) T(opic)s are, in a way, the place where you go once you outgrow plain old Scratching. At the ATs, we take Scratch to its limits. Most threads here consist of someone either asking a question or showing off some piece of awesomeness, and then dozens of really smart people tripping over each other to help out with comments (and general oohs and aahs). It's pretty satisfying.

We mainly discuss extensions to Scratch, mainly programs written in other languages that enhance Scratch (think custom forum skins and bots to post to the forums automatically). A lot of it is just coming up with a crazy idea and making it happen. That's a great way to learn; just do it.

There are a few fiendishly hard and therefore undeniably delicious math questions. If you need help with concepts like trigonometry or vectors, feel free to ask on the forums. And sometimes people ask about computer science algorithms (and use big, scary words like lambda which make you look really smart). But one of the biggest topics is the idea of remixing Scratch to make something better—these are called Scratch Modifications (Mods in short).

There have been many, many mods on Scratch, the main ones being BYOB (which introduced lambda), Panther (which can create and read files on your computer and connect to the internet), and Bingo (which can share automatically to a different website, Mod Share). They add customized blocks (at one point a user created a library with over a hundred of these), awesome features, and great new ideas to enhance Scratch.

The best way to enjoy the ATs is to learn the basics of a couple of languages. The most useful are Python, JavaScript, and PHP, since most cool projects are in those languages. Learn how to write and run code and you'll be able to enjoy all the brilliant projects people have. I'm going to let you into some secrets: you can play Scratch projects on iPads, use a Lego robot to control Scratch (and vice-versa), and use Scratch to build a website. It's all thanks to ATers who love to come up with these little toys.

Don't be afraid to ask questions! Nobody judges you based on what you ask, and no question is too basic. Everyone was a newbie once. But don't just ask questions, answer them, too! The ATs work because all the active users are really friendly people who will devote half an hour to write a large article to explain something to you. But return the favor to keep things going – share your knowledge. I cannot begin to imagine how to express how monumentally important this is.

The ATs are a lot of fun. If you love to make cool stuff and hack together fun stuff, you've come to the right place. Be polite, be humble, but have fun: jokes are both accepted and appreciated.

FAQs
Some frequently asked questions on the ATs. Comment below if you want to add an FAQ!

What should I post here? What shouldn't I post here?
If you need help about a project, help with advanced math or physics, or help with computer science or programming languages, you can post your question here. If you want to show off a project you've been working on that is related to Scratch (Scratch mods, etc.), you can post here; but if it is completely unrelated to Scratch (maybe you programmed your own blog or a custom screensaver) post it in Things I'm Making and Creating. Ask about general programming on Stack Overflow, another programming site.

What are Python/PHP/JavaScript?
Python, PHP, and JavaScript are programming languages. So are C and Java. Python and PHP are used to program servers while JavaScript is used to program webpages.

How do I get started making a Scratch Modification?
You will have to learn Squeak, another programming language. Then download the Scratch 1.4 source code and hack away!

How do I share code?
You can share code via a GitHub account or Google Drive. Embed small snippets in [code] BBCode tags. You can specify a language: [code language]. Here's an example for JavaScript:
var x = 0;
for (var i = 0; i <= 100; i++) {
    x += i;
}
alert(x);
A list of languages supported can be found here.

You can host websites on Google App Engine/Heroku/Github Pages, but static HTML pages can be hosted on Google Drive directly.

Can I make Scratch 2.0 mods yet?
Yes! Since the 2.0 source has been released (https://github.com/LLK/scratch-flash), you can edit, compile, and run it on your own. See this tutorial for more.

What's a cache and how do I clear it?
A cache is a feature in your browser that saves webpages to a file so you don't have to load all the content over and over. SInce Scratch 2.0 gets lots of updates these days, you might not see these changes and instead see a cached copy of the site. This is why it is important to clear your cache. This site gives step-by-step instructions for many browsers.

My question isn't listed here. What should I do?
Ask it in a reply to this post! I'll get back to you ASAP.
