Likes it, just needs recommendations

I tried unliking a project, that didn’t work! You should remove the projects that say “This project contains features which aren’t supported by the version of the app.” so people don’t get confused. I accidentally liked one. So there’s this user called Stella, and almost all of their posts are taken down! I am not very happy because of the community! This app needs recommendations! Oh! There is a kinda good coder here called Purple Cheeto and I like almost all of their projects!
And when I search “learn” I only see projects that have “Baldi” and I do not know that! Okay, I recommend Kodable. Because you make you own little mazes. And the “set easing to” block is too hard! This app is too hard, but I like it (Not too much).

Read this before you download!

I'm a really great coder and stuff. But, there are a few things I hate about it! One: my projects are now taking for ever to be reviewed! What is up with that! It's been taking MONTHS for my good quality projects to come in! Two: I posted a game on my laptop which would've gotten featured. But no. Instead it got rejected! There are vampires, and the mention of blood. But no violence or anything bad! And further more, I saw it got rejected on the TYNKER APP! I was using my laptop. Plus, there were no rules against my game. This proves my point that Tynker is treating their viewers like babies! On Scratch, everyone would’ve loved it! Three: make the site a bit more for older kids! I mean, why do you even have a monster for a mascot! Adding to this review, a lot of the games here (excuse my French) ARE GARBAGE! I also use scratch, so I know the huge difference between Tynker and Scratch. On scratch, most of the community projects are more advanced and fun to play! Most of the games I see on Tynker are…Not that good. So in conclusion, this is NOT worth your money! You can easily get on a better coding platform for free! But you choose to go here. Dat is all. 💄❤️ ouuuuutttt.

I’m starting to get annoyed at this situation

Hello I am Valentina (not my real name) and I love this app and love the people on it but sorry if I get too violent but ITS NOT ALLOWING ME TO PUBLISH BUT EVERYONE ELSE CAN ITS STARTING TO BUG MW BC I THINK SOME PEOPLE THINK THAT I AM GONE FOR GOOD. I don’t wanna switch accounts bc I worked so hard on my account rn. This used to be a good game but now.. it’s gone down, like I can’t even share stuff on there. If there’s an employee on this app who sees this. Please allow me to publish I can only talk with certain people on a different app while some of my friends who I love on this app I can’t even communicate to. I know there’s a solution to this and I won’t stop trying to figure out how to post. Please fix this, first we had to pay just so we can be on the app. Second, we had to wait a few weeks just so tynker can publish a single project and even deleted some projects. And now this. This app is going down the drain, I’ll stop talking now but I am still annoyed and I’ve been paying to be on this app but if I can’t post then that annoys me bc my family is wasting their money on this and I know there probably isn’t even a refund and I wouldn’t wanna refund bc I know there’s a way to post.. I know it.. bye- valentina
