Projects Curated by ()

The Curated Projects section on the Scratch 2.0 Front Page.
The old row in 1.4.

The Projects Curated by () section on the Front Page shows the five most recent projects that were chosen by the latest curator. A curator (FPC) selects a project by favoriting it and is the curator for a week[1] (formerly two weeks). It is updated when a new curator takes over, or the current curator picks new projects. It sometimes takes a little while to update. On a rare occasion, the curator is inactive for a day, and the projects will be curated for two days instead of updating.

This row is currently the 3rd one from the top.

Other Uses

When the Collab Challenge 2011 results were released, the user Collab-Challenge was chosen as curator and displayed the chosen projects in this row. Instead of the usual learn more link, it was replaced with a see more link to this studio. The same thing happened at the end of each Collab Camp.

Disappearance

This row will not show up on the front page if one of the five curated projects is NFE or is otherwise blocked from the front page and the curator has 5 total favorited projects.[2]
