How to Fix the website bug.

Try refreshing the page your currently on, if that doesn't work, then force close all tabs on your web browser window. That should fix the issue. You might just be having a slow internet connection or the servers are very slow with loading pages.

Scratch not Working for me rn

Might just be my stupid school laptop, but the website isn't working for me very well, specifically when going to my profile or my stuff, where the format looks weird and I get logged out. It also won't let me log in when trying to start a new project.

Scratch won't load

When I open scratch, it tries to load, but gets nowhere. Eventually, it just times out. Scratch has had many problems recently. Now, I am on a school computer using school internet, so that can't help either.
