Welcome to the "Time For Fairness on Scratch" program! I'm @Nphantom10, on my new account, @-Nphantom10. There have been many people who have story like mine. "You had many games, hundreds of followers..." But than... BOOM. All of thats gone in a second? Why? Because of some thing I call the SSG rule. The SSG rule stands for "Schooled Scratchers Gone" Rule. This is is when scratchers who's accounts are school accounts get what I call terminated. No, not deleted. Terminated.
Q: Now, What does terminated mean?
A: Terminated means that whoever got terminated cannot access there account, but everyone else can still go on there profile page and see there projects. They just cannot us there account anymore. My account, @Nphantom10, got terminated, which is why I'm using this account, @-Nphantom10.
The Scratch Wiki explains it like this: "If the class ends, the teacher can close the class. The students who are a part of the class will then no longer have the ability to log in, but the teacher can reopen the class at any time."
If you agree to STOP and GET RID OF the SSG rule, then say I agree in the comments, and you will be added to the petition.
Signers of the petition:
@mkolodziej: So I had a Scratch account for school and I made one project on it, then forgot about the account. Then a couple years later, I tried getting back on it, but it wouldn't let me.
@stroudstar: Yeah I used to have like 200 projects and 700+ followers when I was in 3rd grade then my account got "flagged" as a student account just because I used my school account and I had to start over with a new account...
Just because it's a class, doesn't mean at the end people lose or can't access their accounts!
IDEAS ON HOW TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM:
@Dragondreamer26: There should be a button available to the teachers to “release the class” as in let them out of the class so they can still use there accounts.
