Ohh nice (first)
I’ll take judge 1
← oops

Yay it’s here!

I’d like to be a judge, and I realized it’s not first dibs, so I would like to list a few things that would maybe improve my chances:

  1. The official webplayer fix. I am pretty good and finding bugs in projects as well as learning quickly, and I can see where something goes wrong. On the day of the update, I realized that setting an image or text to blank would cause a rendering issue with the JavaScript “canvas”, so I removed the code there and everything seems to work just fine. (TDO, I know you saw this too, later)
  2. The mega 735-action Siri Shortcut. Sometimes it can even be a bit overkill, but it allows you to modify just about anything in your project now, from rules and abilities to object detection. It also has built-in filter detection. I think it’s pretty well-known in the community, and even though it can be a little confusing due to Shortcuts menu customization, it’s pretty nice to work with when you need a simple tweak
  3. I’ve also coded the “Minigames” series, which really just turn out to be “games” in a project (without E-Pad’s system UI). It’s pretty great, and I also remade it last year. Minigames 0.1 hit trending in 2015 with 400 likes, Minigames 0.1.5 hit featured in 2015 (or 2016) with 8000+ likes, and Minigames 2 hit featured in 2018 with 3000+ likes. Basically I code 8 full-scale games in one project, add a bunch of options, and make sure it fits well together.
  4. The king of lag, E-Pad. It used to run at a smooth “30FPS” (Google smooth frame rates or smth like that – 30 is smooth to the eye), but now it runs at 10-20FPS, due to the 359 objects in it. I am currently remaking this too, just like I did with Minigames! Please let me know if you want to be a beta tester.

I believe it’s filtered due to the use of images so @hopscotch-curators do you think you’d be able to take it out?
And maybe @Ana can you put it in Announcements or something?
Thanks yall
