I understand Scratch's desire to be 100% kid-friendly, and I like that. It makes Scratch a wonderful site for all ages. Except, of course, as older Scratchers.
Scratch would highly benefit from private chatting. Some of the benefits would be:
1- No private information on the public pages
2- Roleplaying can be kept secret
3- Criticism of behavior can be done in private, causing less Scratch drama.
4- Older Scratchers may chat freely with their friends (Of the same age)
These are only a couple benefits Scratch would receive. However, private chat should come with rules.
Only 12 or 13+ May have free chat in the private chat. If they talk with younger Scratchers, they should be restricted like on the main pages.
Follow/ Curate to support this. 500 followers means Scratch must consider. Lets go!
