8.2 Add a rank above Scratcher or allow users to skip the New Scratcher status
There are three ranks: New Scratcher, Scratcher, and Scratch Team. The only reason the New Scratcher rank exists is to prevent spam, and since it only takes a few weeks to become a Scratcher, bullying and separation is rather minimal. Similarly, the Scratch Team rank exists so users know who is on the Scratch Team; generally, Scratch Team members do not brag about the Scratch Team rank. In contrast, there may be division in the community between Scratchers and those with a higher rank, which could also lead to bragging and bullying. This also includes a “verified Scratcher” status where well-known Scratchers get a special symbol next to their name.
Although the restrictions for New Scratchers may seem annoying, they are extremely effective against spam and inappropriate content. For New Scratchers who are wondering how to become a Scratcher or what it means to be one, check out this post. The Scratch Team will not allow any accounts to “skip” the New Scratcher status, even if it is an alternate account of an existing account.
Then it would be reported. (for personal info sharing) Semi-support.
However, this could be used for spamming. What if a Scratcher (not a New Scratcher, since those topics can't be closed) created a 24/7-operating bot (more than one, of course, to work around the sixty-second rule per account) that repeatedly flooded (stickies stay at the top), for example, new topics in the Bugs and Glitches forum (with one consistent subject line across all topics, such as “EMAIL ME AT (email)” or “DATE ME AT (dating website link)”), while closing each topic right after?
Is not that just Now, we can have this block:([some] or [qrey] :: #ccc444)<<> or <>>turned into a reporter?Do you mean(() to () :: #ccc444)() ^ () :: reporter // suggestion---https://scratch.mit.edu/discuss/topic/9907/?I like the idea, but I do not think it could work like that.[sprite v] is <> :: #ccc444 boolean // is this impossible? (recolored by quoter)
I think it could work as multiple blocks:[Sprite1 v] is touching [mouse-pointer v] ? :: #ccc444 boolean
[Sprite1 v] is touching color [#32A852] ? :: #ccc444 boolean
Is not that just Now, we can have this block:([some] or [qrey] :: #ccc444)

"My phone number is the numbers in scratch.mit.edu/projects/55531428280000000000/ but without the 0s.yeah. maybe skip to 20 characters? but that would take SO MUCH SPACE The easiest way to fix this would be to exempt the phone number filter in Scratch URLs.
Except for one HUGE problem…
Let's say your number is 314-159-2653 (This is pi, and actually not even a real phone number so don't get mad at me). You could give out your number by linking to this project:
All you'd have to do is say something like “the number in the URL is my number” and people would get what you meant.
Another fix could be to skip 10 letter URLs and jump to 11 letters, but this presents another problem:
PHONE NUMBERS IN NON-USA COUNTRIES
This is a way bigger problem than it seems…
We're 41% of the way there and getting ~100M/year, so we should run into this sometime around 2025-6.Wow… I didn't really think about this, because I didn't know we were so close. That's going to be a big problem. Eventually, when we get to the next digit in the project codes, the phone number censor will replace all link project codes with XXXXXXXXXX, and people will not be able to tell eachother about their projects, or link their new project on their profile, you may need to fix this.
That sets the join date to 2000, not the 1990s. The same way all the gdprs did, probably, they requested a DataWipe or ST wiped their data.
