Scratch is a coding website for kids where people can make animations and games! A lot of the people are very nice, but beware, it is very easy to be banned. Saying some of these words can lead in a block or ban or a mute:
Discussions of self harm
Crap
Fnaf
Wth
Hell
And any variation that could be used as a swear. Eg What the Cheese
A lot of people here on scratch fit into these stereotypes: Art Thieves, Copycats, Wannabes, Warrior Cat fans and HTTYD roleplayers. I cannot stress how easy it is to be banned, if you get hacked and make a new account your new account will be banned but the hacker will not. I'm not trying to be rude because there are many good things about this website, but it's good to be warned. Most "inactive" people have been banned for no reason, so keep that in mind.
Teacher: Alright kids lets go on scratch.mit.edu!
Kid A: Wait.. but they banned me for saying what the macaroni!

Kid B: *remixes popular scratcher's project only changing one sprite*
Kid C: *draws an amazing masterpiece on bitmap, posts it and gets attacked by scratchers for stealing art when they drew it because bitmap art can never be good*
Kid D: *actually uses it for it's intended purpose*
Kid E: *spams all of her classmates with CRAP CRAP CRAP to try and get banned so she doesn't have to use it*
Kid F: ABC IF YOU WANNA BE MY TOOTHLESS IM LIGHT FURY
Kid G: *steals art from DA and gets praise for their skills by other scratchers*
Kid H: *makes 100 harry potter fan studios*
Kid I: *makes a cringy remixed animation meme of Scourge or Hollyleaf*
Kid J: *throws computer and runs from the cringefest
This was not meant to be offensive! These are very common stereotypes and I added them here to kind of give an example

A coding website for kids. So much so that being honest gets you banned, ripping off others is allowed, the word crap can get you banned and so can FNAF. There are some legit great games and animations out there, but mostly attention whores and art thieves, not to mention people who get music and call it an "original project". If you can go five fucking minutes without getting banned, I salute you.
Scratcher: Okay, let's check my scratch.mit.edu account!
Scratch Team: Alert. You were banned for inappropriate language "holy crap this is good", disrespect "stop spamming", and bullying "maybe improve the code".
Scratcher: Fuck this bullshit! (deletes account)

A website made by MIT where you can create your own games, animations, etc. Apparently, this site was made for people ten years of age and older. However, it is treated more like a website for six year olds if you ask me.

The word "crap" is censored, and saying "hell" or "wth" can get you banned for swearing, however discussing and recommending bloody and gory hentai is allowed. The only projects "appropriate" enough for the front page are shitty stickman projects, and projects that say "I QWIT".

The members of this website can be grouped into the following categories: Attention-whores who feign quitting Scratch repeatedly, furry weaboos who do nothing but draw Warrior cats, Forumers who brag about how they have no lives, Art thieves who take art from DeviantART and say it's their own, Wannabe trolls, spammers, and the actual programmers that get banned for little to no reason. They are all referred to as "Scratchers".

Despite all the annoying pricks on this site, it's really hard to actually leave the site without first being overloaded with homework, actually having a life, etc. If you somehow manage to actually survive on this website without getting banned, I tip my hat to you.
New scratcher: "This site seemed cool so I joined! :)"
Experienced Scratcher: "I recommend sticking to the program for now, this site is hell."
Attention whore: "ZOMG VIEW MY PROJECT OR I QUIT FOREVARRR"
Furry Weaboo: "my name is firtree and i want you to join seedclan pleaseeee"
Forumers: "Then I was playing minecraft for like 23 hours, and this meenie said i had no life ZOMG D:<< Discuss"
Art thief: "look at my amayzing art that i drew in five minutes" *posts picture of Vincent VanGogh art*
Wannabe troll: "You SUCK. Get it HAHA SUCK, like, SUCKING SUCK?"
Spammers: "Welcome to scratch now view my project and give it a love-it mmmmk? <3"
Actual programmers: *can't say anything because they're banned*
New Scratcher: "Uhhh... I'll probably just leave now because you guys traumatized me for life. Thanks for that. Remind me to never go on scratch.mit.edu again."

Nobody knows if I can

I appeal it to send

Nothing to recommend

it's a website where loads of 9 year olds say things like "f4f bra" or "im reporting you 4 bein mean to me"
the actual website isn't bad, it's just the people who use it. people who use it are known as 'scratchers' and if you're a n00b then you're a 'new scratcher' if you manage to leave the site without being mentally scarred then I respect you.
Player 1: Hey! Did you hear of scratch.mit.edu?
Player 2: Don't talk about it. You'll never come out alive
Player 3: I heard...that the scratch team ban you for saying the word 'stupid'
Players 1 & 2 & 3: *shudders*
