April 1, 2010 - Happy April Fools Day!
On April Fools Day, it's common to see many websites having many jokes played, and seeing many unusual changes. On the Scratch Wiki, no jokes were played, but on the Scratch Website, there were a few. Although, the only April Fools jokes were on the forums. One joke, was that instead of having the Forums being named the "Scratch Forums", it was changed to the "Scratch Forums - Still only $0.99 (USD) a post!". The other joke, was that Paddle2See, a member of the Scratch Team, posted a fake suggestion on the Scratch Forums telling people to not use upper case letters, and to use cell phone texting to save server disk space. Many users though, said that these jokes were very minimal and not funny, compared to what other websites did on April Fools Day.

March 14, 2010 - Happy Pi Day!
Today is Pi Day! Why? Because Pi is roughly equal to 3.14. The date of this month though, is March (the third month) 13th (the 13th day), so if you put them next to each other, you get 3/14, or 3.14! Because of this, on the Scratch Website, many people have been making projects about pi, and estimating pi, and different methods of getting pi, along with the history of pi. In previous years, the Scratch Website has changed the logo to represent pi day (see here). Enjoy!

March 6, 2010 - Deleting Pages Completed

Users that create articles of these type will be warned that this is not what we want, and the article they created will be deleted, but if it happens multiple times, than there will be consequences.
