End of Competition
First of all, we apologize for ending the competition.
We introduced the competition about three months ago, in hopes of making Sketchware more enjoyable for the users.
We observed some amazing outcomes from the users; the projects from the third competition were outstanding.
However, there were also many disappointments from the users.
There were countless numbers of fake applications and illegal applications submitted that made us frown.
Out of 3,000 to 4,000 submissions, only a handful amount of applications were actually qualified to be judged.
From these observations, we came to an unfortunate conclusion to close down the competition.
Thank you to those who participated, and we hope to provide you guys with better events in the future.
First of all, sorry for discontinuing the official Sketchware tutorial videos.
We didn't have enough manpower to continue creating the videos.
There are already so many awesome Sketchware tutorial videos being created by many users of Sketchware, and we thought it would be a win-win situation for the users to expose the tutorial videos to the newcomers.
Therefore, we have implemented a feature where the users can register their YouTube videos, along with the sample projects. This way, the content creators will have the opportunity to expose their videos to the newcomers.
We are hoping to expand this feature to share the ad revenue generated from the sample project download screen with the content creators in the future.
If you believe that your videos can help other users, please apply! You need at least one video to get started; however, we are going to limit the videos to 5, since too many videos could lead to violation of Google's TOS.
Many users were upset when the sharing projects section disappeared.
Although we can't re-implement the project sharing feature, we have implemented a feature where you can share collections.
For now, only widget collections are shareable. We tried our best to implement block collection sharing as well, but there are too many edge cases to handle.
In the next update, we hope to add a feature where the users will be able to save and share "MoreBlocks."
In addition, we are going to improve the functionalities of "MoreBlock" by making it possible to add resource files into the parameter of the blocks.
