Throughout the three articles: Welcoming Committee, How to Curate the Welcoming Committee, and How to Join the Welcoming Committee, the phrase "Welcoming Committee" is sometimes capitalized, and sometimes not. I think it should be capitalized since it is a proper noun. I think we should at least be consistent. Which way should it be?

Since I got no response I will assume that the capitalized version is correct and will update the articles accordingly.

The image of the three things that new Scratchers see needs to be updated with the new image from Scratch 2.0. Can anyone help work on this? Thanks! --

I'm not sure which one you mean... Where can one find this?

Uh, I think I got it updated assuming I found the right thing.

Private Forum

Yes Resolved (since 19:42, 15 February 2016 (UTC))

That part seems to make the Welcoming Committee something very exclusive. To make it sound less weird, could someone add more context to why the private forum is needed? Basically it is needed to improve the review system and to coordinate reviews, as well as to easily exchange resources for curators. -

I've changed it. How does it look?

Shouldn't it be Scratch Welcoming Committee

 Unresolved (see all...)

Hello. Should it be scratch welcoming committee or welcoming committee.

Reasons why welcoming committee

1. That is the name for the project submsissions studio
2. Name of private forum

Reasons why scratch welcoming committee

1. Often abbreviated as SWC not WC
2. Name of main studio

So what should it be?

Should me mention a fun fact?

 Unresolved (see all...)

Hello! I've noticed on Scratch that when you use the tag "@welcomingcommittee" in comments and click on it will lead you to the studio and not to a user named that way. I feel like that's a fun fact but also pretty unneccesary. Should we mention it or not?
Nambaseking01 (talk | contribs) 18:05, 6 January 2020 (UTC)

Sure! But when mentioning it we should call it more of a "Feature" than a "fun fact".

What happened to your grammar all of a sudden? :P Well okay, but in which section should we add it — we can't make a seperate section just for a mere tagging feature.
Nambaseking01 (talk | contribs) 18:31, 6 January 2020 (UTC)
Woah fixed lol. As for your question I would put in the main summary before the article.
Jakel181 (talk | contribs) 18:51, 6 January 2020 (UTC)
You sure? I don't think it's that important either.
Nambaseking01 (talk | contribs) 16:35, 7 January 2020 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── The tag has been that way for a very long time. (By design.) There was a glitch some months ago that caused the link to the studio to be broken, causing users to be directed to a profile. That has since been corrected. I think that since it is part of the Welcoming Committee, and has been for quite awhile, it is at least worthy of mention. :)

Make Reviewers more prominent?

 Unresolved (see all...)

Hi! So, SWC Reviewers (also known as the "Project Reviewing Team") have the role mentioned here. However, they/we are mentioned briefly in Welcoming Committee Curator under Project Reviewing Team members. However, none of the SWC-related articles actually talk about how to become a member of the Reviewing Team. Instead, the focus is pretty much all on the Curators.

In general, Reviewers do a good chunk of the reviewing. Curators obviously have more responsibilities, but I feel like SWC Reviewers aren't really recognized, and are just these people who do the job of Curators, but aren't Curators. I feel like maybe creating a separate article discussing what SWC Reviewers/Project Reviewing Team does/are (possibly named "Welcoming Committee Reviewer"?), how to become one (although application are currently closed), and clarifying the difference between them and Curators. Thanks!

I see where you're coming from, but I'm not sure that creating an entirely new article about SWC reviewers is the way to go. Maybe instead the article about SWC curators could be changed to be about both SWC curators and reviewers? There's already a list of SWC reviewers there. There could be another section added explaining the job of a reviewer and how to become one, and of course the title of the article could be changed. Also, the section called "The Process" in this article could be updated to include reviewers as well.

I agree that a new article would be unnecessary because reviewers and curators have a lot in common. Adding a new section sounds good, and making the How to Review a Welcoming Committee Project article include reviewers. We could fit that info like how to apply to be a reviewer in a new section like I said.

Making the Tab Go Away

 Unresolved (see all...)

Recently, I made an alternate account. On the third paragraph of the "How it Works" sction, it says this:"This is shown until the user uploads his/her first project or clicks the "X" button." On my other account I shared some projects and if I remember correctly, the 3 links were still there even after I shared a project. Are we sure this information on this page is correct?

scmb1 is no longer a Scratch Team member

Yes Resolved (since 18:12, 6 July 2022 (UTC))

scmb1 is no longer a Scratch Team member, should I change "(Scratch Team Member)" to "(Former Scratch Team Member)" in Section 4.1 of the article?
Starhero5697 (talk | contribs) 11:46, 3 July 2022 (UTC)

Yeah, that's the best course of action. I updated it.

Outdated information

I have observed that recently the way thr welcoming committee works has changed and I know this as I became a reviewer without the form. I think its worth mentioning the undergoing changes. We can still have the older way mentioned and it would be useful if someone can also add the time period when the process was changing. I also know that a few studios are now of no use. We beed to maention all this to provide correct information but I do not have complete information so I would like if a welcoming committee curator could provide some info.

Missing References and Clean Up Needed

This page is missing a lot of references and is in dire need of a clean up. Most things are written without any citation, and due to the nature of the welcoming committee, it's hard to find some for a lot of these as they are simply just understood. As well as things like the forum ID being 50 not being able to be referenced because it's private for example.

The page has little distinction between our previous and current revewing systems. It also is confusing because there isn't a lot of distinction between curators vs. reviewers.

As a welcoming committee curator, I can confirm most of this page is true, but it need to be overhauled as it is messy and confusing to read.

Also, the thumbnail images are different sizes and I'm not sure how to change that?
