How to edit on the Scratch Wiki

We recommend that before you create your question, you read these tips to editing on the Scratch Wiki.

  • Sign your posts with four tildes (~~~~) after your post.
  • To do various text formatting, follow the following rules, rather than using any other text-editing methods:
    • Make text bold with '''text'''.
    • Make text italics with ''text''.
    • Make text bold and italics with '''''text'''''.
    • Make a link to a page outside of this wiki with [http://www.example.com link text] or {{plain link|1=http://www.example.com|2=link text}} if you don't want the Link icon.png symbol to appear (remember http:// prefix).
    • Make a link to an article on this wiki with [[Page name]] or [[Page name|Link text]].
    • Make a link to a Wikipedia article with [[Wikipedia:Page name]] or [[Wikipedia:Page name|Link text]].
    • Indent a paragraph by putting a colon (:) before it.
    • For more, see the help page on formatting.
  • Put new text under old text.
  • Always remember to be polite and respectful, assume good faith, and be welcoming, while following the Scratch Community Guidelines.
  • When creating a new post, mark it as No Not done by putting {{not done}} at the top. Once the conversation has been resolved, replace it with {{done}} (producing Yes Done).

Fixing account request system, round 2

So after the chronic verification code problems we've been having, it's clear we need to fix the system. So, the options are as follows:

  • Generate one based on request details (similar to the old one, but make it day-dependent instead of month-dependent so it changes more frequently)
  • Try to fix the current random system - please note that I have never been able to replicate the problem, so I would have no way of knowing whether my fix works or not

So, is everyone ok with the first one?

Also, while I'm there again, does anybody have any suggestions for other stuff that needs fixing/improvement?
jvvg (talk | contribs) 02:19, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

Support the first.
TheHockeyist (talk | contribs) 16:27, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
Same, first seems good to me.
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 15:39, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

has the new updates been added?

just want to see if the new updates have been added like the crop tool
Powercon5 (talk | contribs) 18:14, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

I'll add owe today if they have not.
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 15:38, 8 March 2015 (UTC)
ok thanks

Any bot ideas?

My bot proposal, BlockerBot, was a flop but I couldn't think of any good ideas for my new bot proposal. Can you suggest some?
PrincessPandaLover (talk | contribs) 22:02, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

Why ask for ideas? The point of bots is to fix problems that humans can't resolve easily. If there's not a great need for a bot, why try and make one anyway?
Scratchifier (talk | contribs) 22:46, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
Wikians hate me... *facepalm*
PrincessPandaLover (talk | contribs) 23:22, 6 March 2015 (UTC)
Why would you think that? I am merely answering your question with some input. I don't have anything against you... :P
Scratchifier (talk | contribs) 01:13, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
We don't hate you at all! We value all contributions from all of our editors. It's just that were are reluctant to add new bots because they often consume a lot of resources and we prefer only to have them used for important tasks. Also, as Scratchifier said, bots are made to solve problems. If there isn't a problem, there's no need to come up with a solution.

Russian Scratch Wiki

Plesase, update Scratch Wiki InterWiki from http://scratch-wiki.besaba.com to http://scratch-ru.infoDmith (talk | contribs) 07:44, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Congrats!

This Wiki has become extremely difficult to update. That means... We've done a good job! I come and go for account requests and all but in general the Wiki can be considered up to date, clean, and informative, so I don't edit many articles anymore.
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 00:52, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Agreed. When I joined, I was like...Hmm...What can I do here...??? :D
Amateurradiogeek15 (talk | contribs) 13:15, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
great work everyone
Powercon5 (talk | contribs) 22:26, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
Curious. How long has it taken?
Amateurradiogeek15 (talk | contribs) 22:34, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
Around two years, from guessing alone?
Anyway, I have to agree with Turkey3. This Wiki is thorough enough that I've become inactive here, minus some account requests.
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 03:27, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
  • lots and lots of account requests
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 05:08, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

Archive?

This has gotten pretty long... and have been 3 days since any activity (excluding this post) here. Archive?
TheHockeyist (talk | contribs) 15:44, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

I would say yes. :)
Amateurradiogeek15 (talk | contribs) 17:52, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
yeah :)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 14:10, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
Agreed!--
Fmtfmtfmt2 (talk | contribs) 15:46, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
Archived! This is actually the first time I've archived the CP... Hopefully I did a good job.

WikiEditor Extension

It would be very handy, can somebody who can contact the Server Manager add it? --

Great request notes from the last month (and a half)

Sorry for not posting this at the beginning of the month. Here they are, in all their glory:

it is fun
because is so good and you are more seriosly and more good
want to contribute
I Want To Make A Scratch Account Cant LogIn With scratch 1.4 account :) so i make a new
for fun
I will update old pages
i could help update old pages
Because i will make scratch a better place for kids and adults
Because without me scratch wont be really good i will add lots of stuff
Because i want to tell people more about scratch and others!
Because I want an account.
To help the SCRATCH Wiki grow of course!
Because i would like to help the scratch community.
to help other scratchers
I need help on my scratch project
so I can learn more about scratch
I want view more thing in this Wiki
because i love scratch and i would like to help with it
Because I always wanted to be a user in the wiki.
big fan of scratch
Because I want to help beginner Scratchers make awesome things.

Once again, I am profoundly disappointed by the amount of very poorly request notes I keep seeing (there are plenty more not on this list). People go through the trouble of finding all the pages to submit an account request, while many of them don't even indicate that they know what the Wiki is. Many people simply think that it's like the forums or just another community and don't realize it's actually a high-quality, high-standards documentation website. A bunch of people also seem to think it's simply a place to advertise their projects (S:NOSP.....). Yet, despite their lack of any information about what this is and lack of reading the page (it even says very clearly that their account request will be rejected if they didn't read the page), they submit a request anyway. Either they think we're bluffing and just accept every request or they just check every box without even reading what's in the box. To that end, it's worth pointing out that in this time period (~6 weeks), two requests had no request notes at all (i.e. blank).

That being said, these past few weeks, we've also gotten more good requests than usual, but still nowhere near as many as the quantity of bad requests.

True... but I have to admit that some of those are hilarious. Such as "Because without me scratch wont be really good i will add lots of stuff" Uh huh. :P

Anyway, I didn't see mine on there....so I guess mine was a decent one. ;)

My fav is "because is so good and you are more seriosly and more good".
Mathfreak231 (talk | contribs) 21:34, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
Yah. That's a good one. XD
Amateurradiogeek15 (talk | contribs) 22:52, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
Lol

The newest curator is elea0042. I hope some EW or admin will update the wiki news :)

Japanese Scratch Wiki

Hello! We're setting up a japanese Wiki right now. Could an Admin please enable interwiki? The japanese Wiki is here: http://jp.scratch-wiki.info/wiki/%E3%83%A1%E3%82%A4%E3%83%B3%E3%83%9A%E3%83%BC%E3%82%B8 . - LiFaytheGoblin Avatar.png LiFaytheGoblin (Talk) 19:11, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

How many pages does the Japanese wiki have? How many users?
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 15:48, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
Well, we're just getting started, nothing is really done yet. Actually it's not necessary to get interwiki already, but in the German, Indonesian and Russian Wiki, we are already connected with the Japanese wiki with interwiki, so I thought the English Wiki might want to join us. - LiFaytheGoblin Avatar.png LiFaytheGoblin (Talk) 16:21, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
We usually wait until some pages are made and there is activity on it!
