This is probably a huge request, but it would be super useful for me.
Nowadays, most of my Pico-8ing takes place on pico-8-edu.com on a school-issued chromebook. Which means it's bad. It randomly decides to sign me out, reload tabs, and/or clear my downloads folder. So I have to backup all my projects to Github daily or I risk losing my project. My friend @Ummmm_ok lost progress on like 3 games he'd been working on when his tabs reloaded and hadn't backed up in a while (he has the same situation as me).
It would be extremely nice (in my opinion) if the education edition worked a bit more like Scratch, where the projects are linked to an account and saved in the cloud. That way, it wouldn't be as much work to back it up all the time.
Perhaps there would just be a button in the top right corner with your username and profile picture. When you click it, it gives you a list of all carts saved on your account. Then you can click one to load it. It would autosave like every 30 seconds or so, or alternatively you'd have to manually save like it is currently.
Again, this would probably be pretty hard to do, but it would be super handy.
I get you. A cloud to support every project would be very welcome. However, I have no idea how to implement it or where to start. Besides it, please tell me how to influence my professors or university authorities to introduce it in our learning program. I am a student among the few ones who promote the actualizations of the learning process. I support the PICO-8 introduction or any other progressive and innovative ideas in our education system. For example, I found on https://edubirdie.com/research-paper-help the best experts for guiding me with my paper homework since I have a part-time job and I don't always manage to do every writing assignment until deadlines. However, this research paper help service fixed my academic performance. In a nutshell, I wish our education institutions were more open to changes and simplifications toward effectiveness.
