    • Category:Articles to Expand -This category lists articles that have been marked for expansion on this wiki.
    • Category:Inaccurate Articles -This category contain pages that need citations and have the Inaccurate template. It would be great if you could help put citations on these pages!
    • Category:Outdated Articles -These are articles that need updated to the most recent version of Scratch. They are outdated and not relevant to the present-day Scratch website or program. These articles may also ignore the fact that the subject is not present anymore and is just there for history.
    • Category:Wiki Standards -These articles do not meet the Scratch Wiki's standards.
  • Special:AncientPages -This page contains a list of the oldest pages on the wiki. You might find some outdated pages here.
  • Special:DeadendPages -These pages do not link to other pages in the Scratch Wiki.
  • Special:BrokenRedirects -These redirects link to non-existent pages.
  • Special:DoubleRedirects -This page lists pages which redirect to other redirect pages.

The following pages contain links to pages/files that need categorized.

The following pages contain links to images that need updated.

  • Category:Unsatisfactory images -These are images that have something wrong with them and need fixing. Please upload new versions of these images.
  • Category:Outdated Images -These are images that need updated to the most recent version of Scratch. They are outdated and not relevant to the present-day Scratch website or program.

You can also go to a random page (via S:EASTEREGG or the Random Page button) and make any corrections you see fit.

Common Editing Mistakes to Look For

  • Punctuation, spelling, and grammar errors
  • Change all YouTube references to Scratch Video Player links
  • Change all links to redirects to links to the article that is redirected to

Common Things You Can Add to Articles

  • Add references
  • External Programs Template (add to articles with links to domains that are not on a or domain)
  • Add categories
  • Add images
  • Add captions to images

You can also create new articles that redirect to other articles. Just like How do I add a manager to a studio? redirects to How do I promote someone to manager?
