Please keep these in mind

  • If I left a message on your talk page, it does not matter to me whether you respond on your talk page or here
  • Unless you ask me otherwise, if you leave me a message, I will respond here
  • The Community Guidelines and Scratch Wiki Guidelines still apply here - please follow them
  • If you want a page deleted, I can do that. However, I can't recover deleted pages, protect pages, or edit protected pages

For the scratch team :)

I do not know if you have seen this already but you should if you haven't seen it already. To go to the project click here.

That's neat. However, I should point out that I'm not on the Scratch Team. I am just an "Experienced Wikian", which gives me a few extra privileges on the Wiki.

Oh.

To learn more about who's on the Scratch Team, you can read the Wiki article. ;)

How do you archive? Why do you want to?
Jandrewg (talk | contribs) 12:16, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

I archive my talk page by moving all of the discussions to User talk:Jvvg/Archive X (X being the archive number, so the first archive is number 1), then I ask an admin to protect it. I do this to keep my talk page from getting too big.

Is your bot down?

Hmm, your bot seems like it is not telling users about categorizing new files being uploaded :)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 02:09, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Apparently a series of requests failed, so it crashed. I restarted it.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 11:46, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
What's with all of the links? (And why link to Special:Upload instead of Help:Images?)
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 12:32, 8 April 2014 (UTC)
Ok great! (Ps I am practicing linking so it will get easier for me to link key words in articles faster!) ;)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 14:54, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Does your confirm account system detect alt accounts?

I mean, someone could create 5 accounts and make them sign up for the wiki any then they would have 4 alt accounts :)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 04:08, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

No, but I can usually tell. I can also ask a bureaucrat to ban any extra alt accounts if I do create one by accident.

Bot linking to categories

In this WikiMonitor notification, the bot left a message on not categorizing a category. However, it linked directly to the category, essentially categorizing it. (After the category was deleted, i took down the link.) I noticed that you already special-cased the File: namespace; adding Category: shouldn't be too difficult, right?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 17:59, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Oops, I didn't. This is awkward... Anyway, patch time.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 00:42, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
Should be fixed now. :)
jvvg (talk | contribs) 00:46, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Please categorize new pages

It appears that when making the page Category:PLEASE IGNORE ME, you did not include any categories. Please remember to categorize all new pages and files. Check out Help:Categories for details. Thanks!
Please note that this message was sent by a bot. Please do not remove it or reply to it. If this message was sent incorrectly, please notify my owner, jvvg on his talk page.

question

How do you create category pages without it showing in the recent changes? I couldn't find your deleted category with the N next to the edit!
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 16:18, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

I think it didn't show up because it was deleted.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 17:15, 13 April 2014 (UTC)
oh thanks!

Mod Share

In Mod Share, could you add the Scratch Mod Explore to the list of Mods?
Jandrewg (talk | contribs) 14:05, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Oh and could you add the file extension .ep (which is the explore file extension, e=explore and p=project so the extension is really .exploreproject)?
Jandrewg (talk | contribs) 14:49, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
As stated here, we are no longer accepting new mods.

WikiMonitor Failed to Recognize Category

On How to Make a Tower Defense Game, I had the Template:In Progress which automatically adds a category to the page. However, WikiMonitor seemed to still notify me about categorizing.
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 18:45, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

Oh yeah, KrIsMa gave me a list of templates with categories, but I forgot to add that to the bot. I need to remember to add that soon.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 18:48, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
Where is that list? I can't find it in your TP archives.
I disagree with the decision to whitelist some of these categories. A page with {{In Progress}} or {{stub}} on it should always have another category in any case. Therefore, the creator should be notified. {{disambig}} doesn't need another one though.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 07:47, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
KrIsMa gave me the list at User:VoxBot/UBBF#4. I will make WM only accept ones that actually have categories related to the content of the article, though.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 11:46, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
So it looks like the only acceptable ones are Template:Disambig, Template:Data Blocks, and Template:ListTOC.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 11:59, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
Later, I'll code those in.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 12:52, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

WM recategorizing on move

I'm suggesting this for WM because it involves watching recent changes. When a category gets moved, it would be nice if WM could automatically update all pages/files/categories categorized under it. What do you think?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 18:53, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

That seems more like a VoxBot kind of thing. However, I could try implementing that.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 18:55, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
Does it? I thought VoxBot was for general cleanup tasks, not patrolling recent changes.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 18:59, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
It is, but this is more of a cleanup task IMO.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 19:00, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
I have implemented the category template detection. For the current list, see User:WikiMonitor/Configuration/CategoryTemplates. I am also writing WikiMonitor B, a bot that will take care of tasks like recategorizing pages. To schedule a task, add it to the service queue.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 22:37, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
The recategorize feature is now complete! Please use it if necessary.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 00:35, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
Clearly there is dilemma present! If recategorizing pages were given to me, it wouldn't be automatic (my bot is semi-automatic) but it would categorize moved pages efficiently. On the other hand, Jvvg thinks that it is a cleanup job and it should be given to VoxBot :) although my bot does some mass editing, i think WM should have this task :)
