The Scratch Team moderates the Scratch Website by removing inappropriate and offensive content. Normal Scratchers can help by reporting posts, user comments, studios, and projects. This will bring them to a moderator's attention.

There was also a program of Community Moderators (or Forum Moderators) that moderated the Scratch Forums. However, the Scratch Team later announced that the Community Moderators program would be replaced with the Scratch Mentors and Scratch Helper Groups program while the Scratch Team would continue to moderate the forums and the website.[1]
