Servers affiliated or owned by Xan
This is my public Discord server for people to talk to me! Notifications can be received with life updates, music & other content recommendations, social media posts, and server updates. ✨ I respond to practically everything here.
Scratch × Discord
I own this server; it's pretty cool! You can get help with Scratch projects, chat with other (big?! 👀) Scratchers, advertise your content, & play with bots + other usrs. It's pretty large, even compared to others listed in a channel on this server.
These groups all have cool features, like onboarding, leveling, notification roles, and announcement channels! They're all actively moderated and enforce Discord's terms and community guidelines.
Xan's Scratch experience
I started using the website around ages 6 or 7 🚼 when I found a book about coding games in Scratch. I created an account named 152902 and stuck with it for a few years, then moved to Ani-Xan (created a terrible 'Original Character'), and finally stopped at -Xanimation- a year later.
Another year or so after that, I started looking for some modifications using Google search and GitHub to make my experience more fun & feature-rich. Stumbling across a very small browser extension that was in development, I joined Discord to communicate with the developers and found friends in a cool community.
A day of fame
I created a new account called Xancan, but it was promptly banned as I had shared 'personal information' (that was obviously false to the standard user but not as apparent to the moderation). I had done practically nothing on the account, so I moved back to my previous account.
With some ideas taken from my failed attempt, I created a clicker game where with every click, I'd donate a very small amount of money to Ukraine during war with Russia. It got enough attention with a Major Scratcher liking it as to become my largest project ever. (Each click was worth $0.000001 and the button was clicked 5 million times!)
