Cool cool. Music would be where we create some pre-recorded songs that could be added to projects :musical_note:

Maybe getting in the main featured page earns you some seeds?

I really like the sticker idea!

I would vote for that and the music option in the poll (only could vote for one).

This would be amazing! It could add a special addition to a game or pixel art, for very little effort. Another cool idea would be a tutorial on how to code music, which you could buy with seeds.

I really enjoy coding music myself! as a prospective music major, it’s fun to explore what I can do even with two octaves of marimba sounds :blush: and projects with music backgrounds are always more fun to play, but something about the whole project being homemade makes us super proud as kids and as innovators.

having pre-recorded background tracks could deter users from experimenting as I have, since music is already a daunting category of code - similar to how images can be an easy way to avoid making our own shape or trail sprites. but at the same time, for those who don’t want to spend too much time making an elaborate track, it could be a nice way to spice up a game.

The badges idea is super cool, and I also like the saving data options.

@Elizabeth
If you have the subscription, what would that mean for giving badges? Would us subscribers be able to give badges regardless of our seed count because we are subscribed?

Thanks!
