Welcome to the Scratch Community!
As part of the Scratch community, you are sharing projects and ideas with people:
• from many different countries and cultures
• of all ages (from young children to teens and grandparents)
• with all levels of experience
We need your help to make this community a supportive place for every member. Here's how you can help:
Be respectful. When sharing projects or posting comments, remember that people of many different ages and backgrounds will see your contributions.
Offer constructive comments. Instead of just criticizing a project or forum post, say what you like about it and offer suggestions on how to make it better.
Give credit. Feel free to make modified versions of other people's projects - just make sure to give them credit. One place to give credit is in your Project Notes.
Be honest. Don't pretend to be someone other than who you are or try to game the community.
Keep personal information private. Don't share your email address, phone number, or other personal contact information.
Help keep the site friendly. If you feel others would find a project or comment mean, insulting, too violent, or otherwise inappropriate, click the link that says "flag as inappropriate." In the Forums, you can do the same thing by clicking on the "Report" link below a post. The Scratch team will review, and may remove any project, comment or post.
