Currently, there are over 3 million projects on Scratch.
A good place to get thinking ideas for projects is the Project Ideas forum.
A project is created by opening Scratch, programming, and saving. Scratch Projects can also be shared on the Scratch Website. Projects can be reopened, edited, or saved as often as one desires.
- Main article: Project Sharing
- Main article: Project Statistics
Below every project's online display, a few lines of text are dedicated to showing how many views the project has, galleries the project is in, remixes the project has, love-its the project has, and times it has been downloaded.
Those numbers show how successful a project has been in terms of popularity, often guiding users on the chance of their project being frontpaged.
- Main article: Project Notes
To the right of a project, just below the download section are the project notes. This contains information about the project. If a user is logged in, they can edit the notes for their projects if they wish.
- Main article: Embedding Projects
By copying and pasting the code given to you under the tags on a project, you can put a project onto a web page.
- Main article: Flag (website feature)
In order for someone to flag a project, they must click the link just below a project that says "Flag as inappropriate?". They will then have to give a descriptive reason for why you are flagging the project. They will not be able to see any projects they have flagged untill they have been assessed by a moderator. Afterward, they will be asked to be sure if you are flagging the right project for the right reason.
Depending on the level of the offense, the user may be banned or given a private notification. Repeat offenders will get banned. It is also against the rules to flag a project without a good reason, as it wastes the Scratch Team's time when they could be dealing with other projects that are flagged for a good reason. People flagging without a good reason may be notified in their Notifications bar.
- Main article: Project Downloading
If a logged in user wants to see how a project was made, they can download it by clicking the download button. The Download Project button, however, cannot be disabled or removed. This is because if it was, it would be violating the licence to play contract.
