garrett      20 days ago  #
the site is down bc smth wrong with the servers, account thingy broken and no "what's happening" and "scratch news"

ur a furry son      20 days ago  #
It was working for a second, but then i refreshed the page to check my messages and the followers thing, scratch news, were gone again, i was logged out, and i couldn't check my mail or play a project, I can make a project, but nothing from my account was saved (because i'm logged out)
I literally have app creators class next period (in maybe 20 minutes)
when i try to click on a project or go to an profile page it gives me the following message
Looks like we are having issues with our servers!
Try refreshing in a few minutes
You can still Download Scratch and make projects."
and if the project somehow loads it just shows a white screen.

garrett      20 days ago  #
it doesn't show your account either, you're logged out for some reason.

Army the armadillo
Army the armadillo was getting food for himself at his desert home. While Army was gathering food he was sort of tired. So before he continued collecting food he said, I guess I could go take a nap. An hour later he woke up and continued getting food.
While Army was getting food Cougy the cougar was getting hungrier. And he was craving his favorite, armadillos. Lucky for him he saw one. He was thinking if he should attack right away or wait a little bit. He decided to wait.
Army was finishing getting food when he realized that Cougy was standing there. So he knew he had to stay calm or Cougy would know Army saw him. Army continued getting food and slowly walked away and knew he had to choose from running away. Or rolling into a ball.

If you want Army to run away turn to pg.2
If you want army to roll into a ball turn to pg.3

Choice 1
While Army was slowly walking away he suddenly started sprinting at his top speed. Cougy saw this, and started to sprint after him. Army starts to worry that Cougy will catch up but tries to stay calm. Once he is calm he starts to speed up and says to Cougy, “You will never catch up to me.”
Cougy sees that Army is speeding up and tries to speed up as well but is unable to. The reason for this is he hasn’t eaten all day and doesn’t have a lot of energy. Army realizes that he is winning this race to survive. So he takes a quick break to eat a few ants, then gets back to running away.
But all of a sudden Army gets to tired to run anymore and has to stop. Cougy sees this and charges towards Army. Army tries to run but is unable to so he scrambles as fast as possible. But it is no use and Cougy catches up, and eats Army.
Because Army wasn’t fast enough he was eaten and outmatched by Cougy and his speed.

Choice 2
While Army was slowly walking away he quickly rolled into a ball. Cougy saw this and is now mad so he goes over to Army. Cougy tries to wait him out and starts saying, “that he wont eat him.” And while he is Cougy ends up falling asleep. Army doesn’t know Cougy fell asleep and waits for a while.
He eventually cracked open his shell and peeked out. And he saw Cougy was sleeping right in front of him. So he quickly unwrapped got up and ran away. Once he got pretty far and knew Cougy wouldn’t be able to catch up he took a break for a minute then kept running.
About an hour after Cougy fell asleep he woke up and saw that Army was gone. So he looked around to try and find him. He looked around for a while. But couldn’t find him so he tried to sniff him out then remembered he had a bad sense of smell. And realized he had let his prey get away.
Because Army was able to defend himself by rolling into a ball he didn’t get eaten and lived to tell the tale.
