A project is created by opening Scratch, programming, and saving. Projects can be reopened, edited, and saved as often as one wishes.
One of the main points of Scratch is to allow others to view your projects and download them. Downloaded projects can be edited and remixed, with credit to the original sharer automatically given.
Uploaded projects are available on the Scratch Website. Many are displayed on the Scratch homepage, while some are advertised in the Scratch Forums. Other projects are kept hidden by their creators, but are still viewed anyway.
When viewing a project, one (if logged in) can add it to their favorites, place tags, add it to a gallery, or click a button titled the "love it". Comments can be shared, allowing a user to learn from their past projects.
