What the Community is Viewing

This article or section documents a feature not included in the current version of Scratch (2.0). It is only useful from a historical perspective.

The What the Community is Viewing section on the Front Page.

What the Community is Viewing was a section of the Front Page that existed prior to Scratch 2.0. It showed three random projects from the ten most viewed projects under four days old. Three new projects were chosen from the 10 that were currently the top viewed projects every time the page is refreshed. It was removed due to the fact that Scratch 2.0 counts views by the number of Green Flag clicks during the current page load, so it would be easy for people to cheat by just clicking the Green Flag over and over again.[citation needed]

It was the bottom row of the front page, before it got removed. The current bottom row on the front page after the 2.0 release is "What the Community is Loving".

History

This section was originally the second to last on the front page, and was called "Top Viewed" at the time. Later on, the name was changed to "Top Viewed Lately",[1] and was moved the bottom section of the Front Page. Finally, the Scratch Team changed the title of the section to its final title, "What the Community is Viewing".[2]
