(Redirected from Favorites)

The portion of a user's profile displaying the users' favorites.
A project that has not been favorited by the logged in user.
A project that has been favorited by the logged in user.

Favoriting a project is a way of showing appreciation for it. The creator of the favorited project will get a notification in their messages.

The number of favorites a project has received is displayed on its page, like loves, but with the characteristic icon of a star. A user's favorited projects can also be viewed on their profile, unlike loves.

Tapping the star icon on a project's page will favorite or unfavorite the project, indicated by yellow for when the project is favorited. Favoriting is only available for logged-in Scratchers. A user's list of favorite projects is visible on their profile. The second row from the top displays the user's twenty most recently favorited projects, and the rest are accessible through the 'view all' link.


Favorites can be used to show appreciation and love. They can be used as prizes or rewards for contests.

They can also be used to notify others about the project. If a user favorites a project, the project will be shown on their profile under the "Favorite Projects" tab and under the "What I've been doing" section, and on the front page under "What's Happening?" for that user's followers.

Curating Projects

Main article: Curator (front page)

Curators choose projects to be put on the front page by favoriting them.[1] The current curator's five most recently favorited eligible projects appear in the "Projects Curated by [user]" slot on the front page, though it can take up to a couple hours for the front page to update and display them.[2] If a curator wishes to curate a previously-favorited project, they can move it back to the top of their favorites list by un-favoriting and re-favoriting it.

For information on becoming a front page curator, see Curator (front page).

April Fools Day

On April Fools' Day of 2015, the favorite button was replaced by a banana for the theme of "Edible Scratch."
