{{not done}}
  
The [https://scratch-dach.info/wiki/Scratch-Wiki:Scratch_Club Scratch club] is a weekly meeting among a group of Scratchers which are contributing actively to the Scratch Wiki and to Scratch in general. The meetings are used to discuss important issues, most notable was the discussion if the transition of the english Wiki should take place. Currently, the weekly meetings are held in German, but we used to have an international Scratch club following after the German one. An alternative could be to make it alternating every week between German and English. As a start, who of the English and international Wiki administrators would be interested in it and able to join? And what would be better: weekly every Monday at 9:00 PM CET or bi-weekly at 8:00 PM? Once I get a tendency about the ''if'' and ''when'', I will bring it up at the next German Scratch club, perhaps already next Monday. <scratchsig>Frodewin</scratchsig> 20:54, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

== Not Done ==
+
So, there are currently four lists of deleted pages on this wiki:
{{not done}}<!-- lol -->
+
* [[User:Mathfreak231/Deleted pages recovery|Mathfreak231's]], which is the most comprehensive but is no longer updated in his absence
 +
* [[User:kenny2scratch/Deleted pages recovery|Mine]], which is a duplicate of Mathfreak's but hopefully more organized
 +
* [[User:Jammum/Deleted Pages|Jammum's Deleted Pages]], which are more recent than either of the above
 +
* [[User:Jammum/All Pages That Have Been Deleted|Jammum's All Deleted Pages]], which seems to be more recent and extensive but has the least information (it's only a list of titles)
  
I know someone already brought it up...<br/>
+
I suggest (from jakel181's idea) that these become a single page in projectspace, something like "Scratch Wiki:Deleted Pages". This could be a [[Template:SWP|Scratch Wiki Project]].
Anyways, Not Done is not getting any attention. I know that Kenny2scratch already added “Things To Do” on the left sidebar, and the TOC of Not Done, yet no one seems to notice it. I think that we should release an announcement to all existing editors about ND, and all incoming users about ND on their welcome page. In fact, I’m going to add that to my welcome right now.<br/>

Hello! I'm an admin in Japanese Scratch Wiki. In that wiki, we have some articles that English Wiki doesn't have. (Of course, some can't be, due to the strict [[S:NOSP]]!)
+
== Welcome templates ==
* [[:ja:音量を使ってScratchを制御する]] (Control Scratch via Loudness Block)
+
{{done}}
* [[:ja:Some Blocks]] (An early extension of Scratch 3.0, which is removed later.)
 
* [[:ja:画像のホスト/cubeupload.com]] (How to Use Cubeupload.com)
 
* [[:ja:商標の方針]] ([https://github.com/LLK/scratch-flash/blob/develop/TRADEMARK_POLICY Trademark Policy])
 
Please discuss whether they are useful. Thank you! {{User:Apple502j/siggy}} 22:54, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
 
:Cool articles! I definitely think we should add the "Some Blocks" one; since it was a Scratch 3.0 extension just like [[Pen Extension|the pen extension]] or the [[Music Extension|music extension]], it's just that it was removed. {{e|:)}}
 
  
:I think the cubeupload one might work well on the Wiki - or at least as a section in [[Image Hosting]].
+
A lot of people have their own "welcome" templates that they post on new users' talk pages. This is a great idea, because new users can get to know new people and, of course, feel welcomed. However, the welcoming effect starts diminishing when things like this happen:
  
:I think we could possibly add the Trademark Policy one - after all, we have articles for the [[Privacy Policy]], [[Terms of Use]], and [[Community Guidelines]].
+
[[File:That's a lot of welcomes.PNG]]
  
:Could you please explain the first one a bit more? Thank you. {{e|:D}}
+
10 different people jumping on the new user is too much - it's not welcoming, it's downright scary! How would you feel if you created an account somewhere and you were confronted with a wall of "welcome"s?
  
:Anyway, thanks for pointing these out - in my opinion most, if not all of them, could be good articles on the English Scratch Wiki as well as the Japanese one! {{e|:D}}<br/>{{User:Bigpuppy/Real Signature}} 14:16, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
+
To counteract this, I don't propose forbidding welcomes entirely; what I instead think should be the case is that we have a limit on how many welcome messages can be on a talk page - probably around 4-5 at the most. That does mean it turns into a race as to who can get their message on first, but that can't be helped - if you want to get your message in, ya gotta be active at the right time.
  
== Uploading ScratchBlocks files ==

I don't think there's much room for debate on the necessity of the limit, but what can be bargained is the limit itself - how many topics do you think is too many?{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 07:59, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

:I think that a limit of 4-5 is a great idea {{E|:)}} I still remember when I started the messages really confused me. Also, I'd say that if you post a welcome message, it should have a variation of the simple title "Welcome!". I tried to make mine a bit different. I like the "All aboard!" one. Maybe we could say if there are more than eight messages already, really don't put one, but if there are 4-5 try not to put your template, but a personal message is okay.{{User:EIephant Lover/Signature}} 21:06, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

I understand that people are just trying to be kind by sending the welcome messages, but it would almost be like a horror film for the person who owns the account.

:::No, the point of each user having their own welcome template is for them to be specific to the user welcoming - a different message for each one. If they just wanted to add their name to a stock welcome they could reply to the {{t|welcome}} message added by default. However, 10 users posting personalized welcomes is a lot of different welcomes to read - which is why it needs limiting.

:::Seems like 4-5 is the limit we've agreed on; for the sake of looseness, '''the limit is now 5 welcome messages at most on any new user's talk page''' (not including the {{t|welcome}} message; does not apply to users created before this decision).

Today I started to finish up the script for [[How to Evaluate an Expression]], and things got out of hand.

I cleaned some of it up, but I am afraid I'll make it worse and I already spent more than an hour on it. Also, I have to save it each time I want to check if it is correct, since for some reason the blocks won't load up in ''Show preview'' mode (it appears in code) but loads when the changes are saved.

As part of this new revival of featured images (and leading on from [[#An Interval for Featured Images]], I propose that we create a page similar in concept to [[S:WWS]], where users leave new section saying which image they think deserve to be featured. This will clean up the CP (just slightly). At around the same time as Wiki Wednesday, the EWs/Bureaucrats review the suggestions and pick three images which will then to onto [[S:FI]]. If necessary, we could also edit the current Wiki Wednesday suggestion forum post to incorporate Featured Images too.

@Ken won't a homepage tasks page just get cluttered up? If they had to filter through edits and news items to find featured images, wouldn't it be harder for the admins? Also, having a dedicated project space is better because it's a) more obvious to Wiki Editors what the page is for, and seems less boring and gruelling than "homepage tasks", which sounds like just a big long list of stuff to do. And b) it would be easier for editors to suggest, because having a clearer Featured Image Suggestions would be more obvious to others what has already been suggested and what hasn't, et cetera. And c) having a dedicated page would make it so much easier to implement into the current WW forum post.{{User:Drunken Sailor/Signature}} 08:49, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

== Moving Plural page titles to singular ==
 +
{{ done}}
 +
On the wiki, there are many page titles like "Blocks" and "Numbers". This makes it confusing to users and editors, as well as links. "<nowiki>[[Block]]s</nowiki> makes a link to singular that appears plural, but there is no equivalent for singular-appearing plural-leading links.
  
 +
This is a big change in the Wiki, so further discussion will be needed to manage the moves.{{User:CrazyBoy826/sig}} 00:07, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
 +
:Could we start a Scratch Wiki Project? I  definitely think we should keep the pages consistently singular. <scratchsig>Groko13</scratchsig> 02:05, 31 January 2020 (UTC)
 +
:: Singular page titles would seem strange, since the plural describes a general thing, there is not only one. Also, I fixed a spelling mistake. {{unsigned|Congyingzhou}}
 +
:::Many page titles cannot be made into plural form. Having both plural and singular forms is confusing and creates other problems. Singular page titles are also easier to work with, as I said in my first post. Also, remember to not change other users' posts without permission.

Ken and I have agreed that there is a lot of potential in creating tutorials in other programming languages which compare the syntax of that language to Scratch. We are roughly aiming for ten tutorials per language at the start of this tutorial. The pages could possibly receive a bar at the end of the front page (i.e. a try this out bar). We were thinking of having Python (3), C++, C#, C, Ruby, Java, PHP, JavaScript and we are looking for more suggestions. The suggested page hierarchy is (Programming Language)/(Tutorial Name) <scratchsig>Makethebrainhappy</scratchsig> 15:16, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

[[User:InterwikiBot/Proposed_Edits]]
  
Welcome to the 11{{th}} Compliment Tuesday! August 28{{th}} 2018.
+
Several issues have already been discovered:
  
'''What is Compliment Tuesday?'''
+
* Not properly handling empty interwikis, ex <nowiki>en:</nowiki>, see the ja homepage
 +
* test -> tw
 +
* The bot is proposing adding interwikis to other pages when they already have an interwiki for that language
 +
* Help:Namespaces has a flat out wrong interwiki suggestion
  
Compliment Tuesday is a way of showing appreciation to other Wikians. Feel free to congratulate someone for finishing a large page, or even just give minor thanks for a minor edit. Just remember to keep everything positive! {{e|:)}}
+
This might take another round or two to remove perviously undiscovered bugs, but with the wikis growing more complex, it's important to get them now. Thank you <scratchsig>ErnieParke</scratchsig> 01:37, 12 March 2020 (UTC)
  
'''How to Compliment'''
+
== Advertising article ==
  
We have a whole wiki page on it! {{e|:D}} You can find it here: [[Scratch Wiki:Compliment Tuesday|Compliment Tuesday]]
+
We really need to overhaul [[Dexter_Industries_GoPiGo_For_Raspberry_Pi|this article]]. A lot of it is just advertising the product. For example, do we really need a "Buying" section? <scratchsig>Groko13</scratchsig> 23:17, 14 March 2020 (UTC)

== Sonic the Hedgehog ==
  
'''Compliments'''
+
Right now the wiki is saturated with Sonic the Hedgehog stuff, specially the AF pages. Lots of example of stuff are Sonic stuff. The entire wiki feels like an indirect Sonic ad. We should change a lot of this examples. <scratchsig>Scramaso</scratchsig> 11:25, 24 March 2020 (UTC)

:Other than April Fools pages, could you give a few examples? <scratchsig>Ravenclaw900</scratchsig> 13:46, 24 March 2020 (UTC)
 +
::Just wiki search Sonic or Hedgehog. Also a lot of examples are by PrincessPandaLover and need to be changed int more generic stuff. <scratchsig>Scramaso</scratchsig> 14:29, 24 March 2020 (UTC)
 +
:::If I'm not mistaken, the Sonic stuff is limited to only AF pages. It's fine to gradually phase AF pages away from Sonic content while making other edits to the pages, but don't go mass editing out Sonic stuff. (Do note that I don't really see a problem with a Sonic theme in AF pages lol){{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 16:37, 24 March 2020 (UTC)

== Changing minor edit box to major edit ==

Wow, so I just added the <nowiki>{{Done}}</nowiki> and <nowiki>{{-}}</nowiki> templates before the title of a message, and I signed my message under it. The only thing is, I accidentally forgot to add the done thing, so I had to edit my post and put that there. That message was from Wikibot. And ''then'', when I did that, I got another message from WikiMonitor saying that I didn't sign the post meanwhile I'd just added the templates to the title.
  
All those times when you forget to click the minor edit box... Most of the edits on the wiki are major edits. So why not have the minor edit box already ticked and if it is a major edit untick it, or change the minor edit box to a major edit box. If you look at RC most nearly all edits are minor so that is why i am suggesting this change {{User:Asqwde/sig}} 12:59, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

:Ahem! There is a user preference in [[Special:Preferences]] that will do exactly that - check the minor edit box by default. I don't think everyone should be making minor edits by default (especially newer users - on Wikipedia anonymous users can't even make minor edits at all!). If you think your own edits will be minor by default, set your [[Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-editing|preferences]] that way (check the "Mark minor edits by default" box).{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 13:40, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

In the last few days, a PFP trend about Lancer from Deltarune has been on many Scratcher's PFPs.

Hi everyone! I wanted to put a little feeler out there to see who was interested in participating/creating content for a possible Scratch Wiki YT Channel. We would publish wiki-like content within YT's video format. We could then link to this content from within the Wiki. You could for example create a Scratch tutorial, run-through a certain block or feature, or discuss a recent community venture you participated in. If y'all are interested in seeing this idea come to fruition, please comment to express your interest and volunteer yourself for content creation. Thanks! <scratchsig>Makethebrainhappy</scratchsig> 14:51, 27 April 2020 (UTC)

TenType pointed out something very relevant - [[Project:104]] links to [[Scratch Wiki:104]]! I'd forgotten about this - "project" is a namespace alias for whatever the meta-namespace is. I've renamed <code>project:</code> to <code>projects:</code> to get around this; and for consistency, <code>studio:</code> is now <code>studios:</code> and <code>profile</code> is now <code>users:</code> (the last one because "users" isn't a namespace while "user" is). The <code>scratch:</code> prefix remains unchanged. FYI!{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 02:24, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

Hi everyone! I've been asked to give you a heads up about an excellent program over on the DE Wiki: [https://de.scratch-wiki.info/wiki/Scratch-Wiki:Scratch_Club Scratch Club]. I've been a few times (and would love to attend more) and the discussions relate both the Wiki and fascinating technology. The meetings are for international audiences as well with English as a standardized language. Here is a little sneak peak as to what they will be discussing at the next meeting taking place on May 20th, 2020 at *6:30 G.M.T - 8:30 C.E.S.T (Germany)*.

* Offtopic: https://youtu.be/60P7717-XOQ (Stephen Wolfram: Computing a Theory of Everything) - This month Stephen Wolfram presented a breakthrough in his thoughts concerning the creation of an entirely new model of the world based on [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automata_theory Automata Theory]. He thereby wishes to better explain the laws concerning space, time, energy and matter in a clearer light than previous models. In this manner he is one step closer to achieving his life goal which he presented in the TED-talk linked above ten years ago. Here is his presentation from 4/14/2020 in which he explains his theories as well as he can and affords all interested listeners an opportunity to share his joy in the solution. If his theory is correct, it may be a breakthrough as great as that of Newton and Einstein. Fascinating! https://youtu.be/rbfFt2uNEyQ (Wolfram Physics Project Launch: 14. April 2020)

+
* The topic above isn't *offtopic* at all but a great idea for us! Who will find the Scratch program that best interprets "Rule 30"? Or who will program it? Who will write a Scratch Wiki article for it that is of such quality that it will be in Wiki Wednesday for both the English and German Wikis at the same time? *This must become a theme within the Scratch community* Why? It is the best example for Scratch's motto: "low floor high ceiling." Every student can appreciate "Rule 30" and even program it, but the implications point to a "Theory of Everything."

{{done}}
  
Like Wikipedia, the Scratch Wiki should have locking.
+
<small>Yes, I know there are already two topics about this, but this one has a very specific suggestion that can be implemented relatively quickly if people agree.</small>
Full protection prevents editing by everyone except admins and EWs. Fully protected media files cannot be overwritten by new uploads.
 
Semi-protection prevents editing by New Wikans
 
Creation protection prevents a page (normally a previously deleted one) from being recreated.
 
Move protection protects the page solely from moving (renaming).
 
Upload protection prevents new versions of a file from being uploaded except by admins and EWs, but it does not prevent editing the file's description page.
 
Pending-changes protection means edits by unregistered and new contributors are not visible to readers until the edits are approved by an admin or EW.
 
Extended confirmed protection, also known as 30/500 protection prevents editing by users without three months and 500 edits on the English Wiki.
 
What do you think?
 
<scratchsig>Whatsfordinner77</scratchsig> 04:23, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
 
:Correct me if I'm wrong, but we can already protect pages. I'm pretty sure that since our wiki is hosted by MediaWiki ''(?)'' we either can already do it or can but we're not using that features. I'd ask an admin or EW for more help on this one. {{User:Redglitter/Signature}}  07:12, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

== Thinking Templates ==
+
As you probably know, there's a section of the CP specifically for topics that are not yet done and haven't been done for a while. Users can access it by going to [[Scratch Wiki talk:Community Portal/Not Done]] or [[S:CPND]], or alternatively via the "Things to Do" link under "For Editors" in the sidebar. The unavoidable fact is that these topics hardly ever get looked at. By anyone.
  
I have template ideas.
+
There have already been two topics created about this issue and how to solve it, [[Scratch Wiki talk:Community Portal/Not Done#Not Done doesn't get enough attention|Not Done doesn't get enough attention]] and [[Scratch Wiki talk:Community Portal/Not Done#Not Done|Not Done]]. Kenny2scratch introduces his topic (the former one) with "So I was browsing through Scratch Wiki talk:Community Portal/Not Done and realized that all of the discussions had been moved there and left to rot simply because they happened to last longer than an archive period." The unfortunate thing is, this is still happening. And not only that, but ironically, it's happening to both of the topics I linked. Ken's is from February of ''(drumroll, please)'' 2018. I am not about to propose a "cure-all" solution to this problem, but something that ''could help.'' In other words, it definitely won't solve the problem, but it might assist a bit in solving it.

== Split the Paint Article  ==
+
Well, let's get onto the idea already, shall we? I think that when people ''do'' hear about Not Done, and go to it (wanting to contribute to a discussion), they may get frightened by the overwhelming length of some of the topics and leave without contributing to any of them. Therefore, here is my suggestion: we put each ''discussion'' ''(not'' its corresponding header) into an "extended content" box using <nowiki>{{collapse top}}</nowiki> and <nowiki>{{collapse bottom}}</nowiki>. Then under the header, but ''not in the "extended content" box,'' we add a short, one to three sentence summary of what the OP is saying (and perhaps even more things, like what has been discussed so far). I've created a mockup with two discussions [[User:Bigpuppy/CPND Mockup|here]].
  
I was browsing the wiki and noticed that the Paint editor article ([[Paint Editor|here]]) is '''really''' long and could possibly be split up into three different articles: History of the paint editor, 2.0 Bitmap Paint editor, and 2.0 Vector Paint Editor. <scratchsig>Jakel181</scratchsig> 20:55, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
+
I think that this way, when folks go to [[S:CPND]], they can easily find a discussion they'd like to contribute to (without being scared away quickly). Then, when they find a discussion they're interested in, they can un-collapse the box and read the replies so that they can give their opinion. They won't be scared away because they didn't see ''tons'' of long discussions at the same time, they just saw short suggestions. Then they see ''one'' long discussion after they un-collapse the box — the one they're interested in.
:It is kinda long, but so is the CP, and do we split this? I realize it's not exactly the same thing, but it's not long enough to truly need splitting.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 07:03, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
 
::in Japanese wiki, we ''did'' split it. At that time, "Types of Graphics", "Bitmap Editor", "Vector Editor", "Bitmap and Vector Comparison", "Paint Editor Conversion", "Interaction With Other Programs", "Example Uses", and "Alternatives" section is kept. Others are moved to version subpages, such as [[Paint Editor (2.0)]]. Guess what will happen next January here, without the change.

:::Hmm, I like the idea but looking at your mockup I'm not sure how well it'd work in practice. I feel like it might be a better idea to let the OP(ost) of each topic be the summary, and rather collapse away all of the subsequent discussion so that it's easier to scroll past. If the OP(ost) itself is really long, then I suppose a manual summary might be in order, but unless the OP(oster) is inactive then it might be a good idea to let them do the summarizing themselves to best capture the essence of the idea.

On it, there is no Test-Wiki for Twi, which seems to be an African language spoken in Ghana. If there is no Test-Wiki for Twi, why does the Interwiki link to the Test-Wiki use its language code? {{User:Jammum/Signature}} 09:22, 11 May 2020 (UTC)
  
I was just looking through [[Special:Categories]] and the eigtheenth one that shows up is Category:BYOB Images. Back in August, CrazyBoy826 moved it to Category:Snap! Images. However, there are still pages categorised undder this category. The edit summary included: {{quote|The categorized pages will be fixed later}}

:Actually, I saw it before in Wikipedia's ISO 639-3 language codes list a week ago, and I was going to say that. I think this code designed from  '''T'''est Scratch '''Wi'''ki. However, I think that it's not a big problem for now. <scratchsig>Ahmetlii</scratchsig> 11:27, 11 May 2020 (UTC)

::<code>test</code> is not an inter-''language'' code, so it's impossible to link to (say) the Test wiki CP using <code><nowiki>[[test:Test-Scratch-Wiki talk:Community Portal]]</nowiki></code> the same way we can for real languages. However, <code>tw:</code> happens to be a real language, whose language code is recognized as an inter-language code, whose language code can nicely stand for "test wiki", and whose language name can be repurposed to mean '''t'''est '''wi'''ki. If we ever do have a wiki in the actual Twi language, then things will have to change; but for now, we use "Twi" as a means of treating "test" as an inter-language link rather than inter-wiki.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 16:33, 11 May 2020 (UTC)

:[[Special:MyPage/common.js|Your common.js file]] is a {{wp|JavaScript}} file that will run on all pages, no matter what skin you're using - but only for you. It's basically a Wiki-specific alternative to userscripts that MediaWiki supports natively.

Hi! I was wondering if people can write articles on studios on the Scratch Wiki. The guidelines say if you are not allowed to advertise users or user-generated content. Does this apply to studios? I don't think it does because a Wikian wrote an article about the Scratch Design Studio. It merely explains what the SDC (Scratch Design Studio) is. So my question is can you write an article about a certain studio? Without advertising it of course, but merely explaining what the studio is and its purpose. I don't think I'll be writing any studio articles anytime soon but an answer would be much appreciated.

:To make an internal link, you use this syntax: <code><nowiki>[[NAME OF PAGE|LINK TEXT, IF APPLICABLE]]</nowiki></code> For example, if you wanted to link to the page about the Scratch Team, you'd do this: <code><nowiki>[[Scratch Team]]</nowiki></code> That would make this: [[Scratch Team]] Or you could do this: <code><nowiki>[[Scratch Team|ST]]</nowiki></code> That would make this: [[Scratch Team|ST]]

:You make an external link with this syntax: <code><nowiki>[URL LINKTEXT]</nowiki></code> For example, if you wanted to link to example.com, you could do this: <code><nowiki>[https://example.com/ Example]</nowiki></code> And that would make this: [https://example.com/ Example]
I was trying to use a external file from another website, but it turned into a reference.

Having a list of explicit images isn't enough. To actually use WM Commons, we need to be able to censor any explicit images from being included at all, which is not possible with any of our current tech. I will not listen to any more arguments for using WM Commons files, unless you can point out a simple way to censor explicit images. {{done|Rejected}}{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 02:48, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

=== Why there was an IP ban ===
 
No, it wasn't a MediaWiki ban. Because the page title had a website domain in it, and I attempted to view it, I apparently triggered some sort of anti-commercial spam mechanism that caused me to be IP banned. The ban just got lifted (which is why I can talk to you now), but I've censored the page title for its misdeeds.

Several replies in [[topic:406141|this forum topic]] say that macOS 10.14 and 10.15 drop support for 32-bit apps, including [[Scratch 1.4]] and obviously other 1.x versions.

You can now include images from any wiki, on any wiki! This means if a file exists on one wiki it can be included on any other. There's no special syntax to include cross-wiki images, it's just a normal file link. As an example, scroll to the bottom of [[User:Kenny2scratch/Sandbox|my sandbox]]; The QR code there is actually a file on the Japanese wiki: [[:ja:ファイル:ウェブサイトのQRコード.png]]! Note that the "File:" part has to be in the correct language for your wiki.

I think that because the main page of the Scratch Wiki and the scratchblocks have the new 3.0 style, why not the logo? I think that the Scratch Wiki logo needs an update. It has the old 2.0 style, and 2.0 is long gone. Please tell me your thoughts on this!

So for those who don't know what [[User:Kenny2scratch/Project Guides/Siggy Warner|Siggy Warner]] is, it's basically a JavaScript thing that pops up a confirmation box when you forget to sign, as well as adding a notice to previews when you don't sign. You can still deliberately omit the signature by either checking the "minor edit" box or typing "CONFIRM" when prompted.

== Problems with Categorizing a Page ==
  
Since forgetting to sign your post is one of the most common mistakes, I propose that instead of people opting into using my siggy warner, we add it to [[MediaWiki:Common.js]] as something that is loaded for all users. I think my siggy warner has reached a development status where it's ready to be included for everyone.

::(this indentation indicates a reply to @D_S) jvvg also noticed that I'm slowly integrating more WM functions into the core. He's fine with it, though, since it would be less for him to maintain. Actually, WM doesn't need to check file categories anymore, either - an abuse filter prevents file uploads without categories. But WM isn't anywhere near out of a job yet - it has curator updating and rapid edit detection, neither of which we can do regularly.

:8bitjake, welcome to the Scratch Wiki! You can transclude a template by placing two sets of curly brackets (<code><nowiki>{{ }}</nowiki></code>) around the template name. For example, <code><nowiki>{{doing}}</nowiki></code> would translude {{t|doing}}, to make {{doing}}. You can do this with other namespaces too; for example, <code><nowiki>{{User:8bitjake}}</nowiki></code> would transclude your userpage.

::You get this idea from Wikipedia, I presume? We don't have enough need for shortcuts to help pages to separate help shortcuts from project shortcuts, I believe.

::: Firstly, I didn't get the idea from Wikipedia. Secondly, I think T: shortcuts and U shortcuts might be a bit spammy and unnecessary.

::::It is indeed true that S: stands for "Scratch Wiki", but B: doesn't stand for any namespace, does it? Also, I think you missed jakel181's point: if we were to have another shortcut prefix for a specific namespace, that would open up the possibility of more prefixes for even more namespaces, causing clutter. Anyway, help pages are not referred to frequently enough for a special prefix to be necessary - if you need to create a help shortcut, use a plain S: shortcut.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 02:10, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

As a reminder [[Wiki Wednesday]] is our monthly newsletter posted on the Scratch website. We want to make this edition extra special! Please submit below some pieces that we could format into the post: short paragraphs about "your favorite Wiki edit" or longer OP-eds encouraging members of the Scratch community to join us as Wikians. I am happy to review and incorparate any idea you have - I really want this edition to reflect our community as a whole. I look forward to reading you responses. I would appreciate if your submission was finished and posted here by '''June 21st''' so that I have time to review and format the final post. Thanks again! <scratchsig>Makethebrainhappy</scratchsig> 02:15, 18 June 2020 (UTC)
::I think I understand you right... you mean that links to pages when viewing in a skin other than your set skin should have <code>?useskin=skin</code>? I.e. if you're viewing in another skin, links should not take you back to your set skin?
+
:I'm so excited! Anyway, my paragraph is:
::Good idea. Now is it worth the effort?

:My favourite Wiki edit was probably the time I edited a bunch of stubs with actually good content in it, not just rushed, 5 minute content. I had a lot of fun doing that, and I want to do it again!<scratchsig>garnetluvcookie</scratchsig>Garnetluvcookie 00:24, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
::Changing links on the server-side is likely the most elegant solution, but also the most difficult.
+
::My favourite edit is "hmmst'd've's (the pulp free orange juice with extra pulp that crash-landed into my basement and said banana)". It was funny. Also, it's a good example for that Scratch and Scratch Wiki are same, we're not writing "only" boring contexts. Also, we're (as Scratchers in Scratch Wiki) writing for Scratchers. There has funny and helpful things. We're trying to helpful for everyone because this wiki is written by Scratchers for Scratchers. That's the main task.{{User:Ahmetlii/sig}} 18:31, 20 June 2020 (UTC)
::Changing links with MW JS is hackier, but easier. Thing is, it also eats up processing power, especially when there are a lot of links. It's also difficult to discern what links are internal and what links aren't.
+
:::I love editing for the Wiki because I get to share my knowledge about Scratch and help other people find information that they need. Also, I've learned a lot of new things about Scratch while working on and reading the Wiki articles. Being a Wikian is a great way to give back to the Scratch community, and it's a lot of fun working with people from around the world, whether it's working on a large project or page, or just making some smaller changes to an article. The Scratch Wiki community is really nice and helpful as well.<scratchsig>Groko13</scratchsig> 16:00, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
::If you want to preview in a certain skin, though, you can use my [[User:Kenny2scratch/useskin.js|useskin.js file]] (add the line <syntaxhighlight lang="javascript" inline>mw.loader.load('https://en.scratch-wiki.info/w/index.php?action=raw&ctype=text/javascript&title=User:Kenny2scratch/useskin.js');</syntaxhighlight> to [[Special:MyPage/common.js|your common.js file]]) which adds a dropdown that lets you choose what skin to preview in.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 03:30, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

== The server transfer: what it is and why the last try failed ==
+
== Thankful Thursday! (On a Wednesday!) June 24{{th}}, 2020 ==
 +
Welcome to this month's Thankful Thursday! This month is a special one because it is the 50{{th}} edition [[Wiki Wednesday]]! For those of you who don't know Wiki Wednesday is a monthly Scratch News series where the Scratch Team features an article suggested by the community on the last Wednesday of the month. To celebrate we are releasing Thankful Thursday a day early to be in conjunction with Wiki Wednesday. So, an extra special thanks to both MakeTheBrainHappy and LiFaytheGoblin who made Wiki Wednesday possible!
 +
<br /><br />
  
So I want to clear up several things... Sorry I didn't bring this up before. (For the sake of making grammar work, I will speak in future tense here.)
+
Without further ado:
 +
<br />
 +
{{Scratch Wiki:Thankful Thursday/archive 029}}
  
=== What it is ===
+
{{quote|There are many more people on this wiki who deserve these comments just as much as those who received them. :) Everyone is special and brings their own ideas. The more of us there are, the better the community spirit. Sadly, I must sign off now- <scratchsig>Makethebrainhappy</scratchsig> 01:06, 13 June 2018 (UTC)}}
There is another server transfer upcoming. (For those wondering what I mean by "another", see [[Scratch Wiki#Server Transfer]].) The purpose of this transfer is as follows:
 
* To move the Wikis onto their own dedicated machines
 
* To give the admins more freedom and power on the servers
 
* To release us from the constraints and worries of being on someone else's company's server
 
For those who don't know:
 
* {{user|MartinWollenweber}} is the person who financially supports the Wikis. Currently, the Wikis live in a folder on his company's server.
 
* To prevent us from doing any potential harm, he only allows we admins to access the servers via FTP, which does not let us do any advanced configuration.
 
** I am an exception to this. I currently have command-line access on his company servers for the sake of preparing for the transfer.
 
  
=== Why it failed ===
 
I attempted to perform this transfer at 10:00AM (UTC) last Friday. However, the attempt ended up failing. I was presented with MySQL error 2013 (search it up for more info) when dumping the wiki databases to transfer to the new servers. There are two possible causes of this error:
 
* The database is corrupted (doesn't seem to be the case)
 
* The database is too large, and MySQL times out when reading from it (very likely)
 
  
=== When the next one is ===
+
The next TT is, July 30{{th}}, see you then!<scratchsig>Jakel181</scratchsig> 04:24, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
We're not really sure on this one. We're still trying to arrange a time. But do be warned that while the transfer is ongoing, the Wikis will be set to "read-only" mode. This means nobody can make any database changes.
+
:{{not done}}<scratchsig>Jakel181</scratchsig> 04:24, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
  
=== Questions? ===
+
== Removing biased opinions on Wiki pages. ==
Hopefully that explained most of everything. Any questions?{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 11:53, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
 
:Thanks for the explanation {{User:Asqwde/sig}} 07:36, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
 
:What country were the files moving to? <scratchsig>Jammum</scratchsig> 17:54, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
 
::It's still in Germany. It moves for at most one meter. {{User:Apple502j/siggy}} 23:23, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
 
:::That's probably less important {{wink}} <scratchsig>Makethebrainhappy</scratchsig> 01:32, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
 
  
== Template ==
+
There are many pages with a note like:
  
I would like to create a template for when a page needs its name to be changed.
+
{{note | This can be hard for New Scratchers to make, as of its complexity.}}<br />  
<scratchsig>Tarekzaki</scratchsig> 18:09, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
 
:Thanks for suggesting this idea. What would be the use of the template though? Why can’t you just move the page yourself? If it is move protected then that means the title is suitable, if you disagree you can bring it up on the CP. I don’t see the use for this. {{not done|No support!}} {{User:Asqwde/sig}} 19:48, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
 
::@Tarekzaki and @Asqwde it already exists. {{t|Move}} ;) Though, I created a redirect so you can use {{t|Rename}} as the "Move button" was renamed to "Rename". {{done}}<scratchsig>Jakel181</scratchsig> 20:10, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
 
:::Thanks for creating the redirect, but I think the OP was referring to when a page needs to be moved not when someone suggests a page to be moved {{User:Asqwde/sig}} 20:17, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
 
::::The move template is for both, when a page needs to be moved and when someone suggests a page to be moved. <scratchsig>Jakel181</scratchsig> 21:51, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
 
:::::Thanks for explaining guys. <scratchsig>Tarekzaki</scratchsig> 06:51, 10 November 2018 (UTC)
 
  
== Should we add more emoji templates? ==
+
The Scratch Wiki is supposed to be a neutral source of information about the Scratch website, right?  I suggest that we remove all those notices from the pages. New Scratchers aren't dumb. They are just users who made an account. No-one needs to say "This is the green flag. Sound it out with me G. R-" NO. I know a user who is amazing at coding in text-based languages, yet other users were saying "ThE ScRaTcH WiKi sAyS tHaT nEw ScRaTcHeRs CaN't cOdE sHoW I sHoW yOu HoW!1!1!". This is making the Wikians look like fools for putting this stuff on here, I quote an earlier part of my post "The Scratch Wiki is supposed to be a <big>neutral source</big> of information. This is the end of this before it gets a little too ranty.
 +
<scratchsig>Garnetluvcookie</scratchsig>Garnetluvcookie 01:30, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

:You bring up a very good point! I agree that all of these notices should be removed. The reader can judge how hard a script will be to understand themselves, based on their experience and skill level. {{e|:)}} Everyone is different.<br/>{{User:Bigpuppy/Real Signature}} 01:59, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

== Tell users on Wiki Wednesday topics not to spam in replies ==
{{User:KJRYoshi07/Signature}} 23:16, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
 
:I don't think that we really need more emojis as we are not social messaging site, the only ones that we have are the ones that scratch has.<scratchsig>Jakel181</scratchsig> 02:52, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

Added the specific emojis. I suggest you add the cat face emojis to the {{t|e}} template yourself, but please do prefix the emoji names with "cat-" or something that obvious indicates you want the cat version.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 11:19, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

When Wiki Wednesdays are mentioned on the Scratch News on the homepage, some users' replies contain spam such as blockspam.

::I would say yes, Keep it consitent with it's documented name.<scratchsig>Jakel181</scratchsig> 01:55, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
 
:::Hm, the ones that are already cats only have cat versions. I'd say keep those, but add an extra switch option:
 
<pre>|cat-B)
 
|B)=...</pre>
 
:::That should make things more consistent. Also do update the documentation.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 06:53, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

== Compliment Tuesday! November 20{{th}}, 2018 ==
+
I suggest that at the end of each Wiki Wednesday initial post, it should say that when replying, users should not spam. It could also give the definition of what is considered spam (such as offtopic blocks, gibberish, emoji testing, etc.), so users will less likely be confused about what spam is (other than the food product of the same name), that spam could be reported, and that block testing and project advertisements go in the Forum blocks testing topic and the Show and Tell forum respectively. {{User:Jammum/Signature}} 09:23, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
 +
:It's a good idea - and I agree with you, but I think that's not a exact solution manner. As an example, lots of announcements and sticky topics (Wiki Forum Community Portal) are getting blockspam; some people, like me, TenType, SausageMcSausage or ST, warn them, but I see a new spam everyday when I check Wiki Forum Community Portal. Also, nobody don't write aggressive posts for warn users; for example, don't write "DON'T MAKE BLOCKSPAM OR SOMEBODY MAY WARN YOU(ME OR ANYBODY ELSE)".

== Scratch MIDI notes ==
 +
{{done|Done, though articles mentioning MIDI must be updated}}
  
'''How to Compliment'''
+
Everywhere I look says that [[MIDI]] has 128 notes, from 0 to 127. However, Scratch can play up to note 130 with the [[Play Note () for () Beats]] block, so I'm pretty confused. Does Scratch use MIDI? What is it doing? <scratchsig>Groko13</scratchsig> 21:31, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
 +
:The Community Portal is a place to add questions or suggestions about the Wiki, not Scratch. You may want to ask this in the [[scratch:discuss/31|Advanced Topics]] forum. {{User:VFDan/Sig}} 01:37, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
 +
::VFDan, I interpreted the question as something they were asking so that they could ''improve'' the wiki, though I might be wrong. However, the talk page of that article may be a better place to ask.<br/>{{User:Bigpuppy/Real Signature}} 01:44, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
 +
:Scratch used MIDI until Scratch 2.0, and there are indeed 128 notes from 0 to 127. The notes would be synthesised by software on one's computer, and there are 128 General MIDI instruments. (It's also possible to use an electronic synthesiser, but I don't think that was ever an end-user feature.)
  
We have a whole wiki page on it! {{e|:D}} You can find it here: [[Scratch Wiki:Compliment Tuesday|Compliment Tuesday]]
+
:Since Scratch 2 Scratch no longer uses MIDI, but offers 21 sampled instruments. (I think I read somewhere that the Scratch Team was dissatisfied with the MIDI synthesis offered by Flash, or something along those lines, but I don't remember the details so please don't take that as fact.) In Scratch 2 there are still only 128 notes, but Scratch 3 offers 131. Though as mentioned this discussion doesn't quite belong here.<scratchsig>Jonathan50</scratchsig> 01:48, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
 +
::Mostly I was asking so that I could update [[Template:MIDI Notes|this template]], but it might apply to other articles, especially if Scratch is no longer using MIDI. Should I move the discussion over there somehow? Although you answered it pretty well. Do you have any sources saying that Scratch doesn't use MIDI anymore? It would be really helpful.<scratchsig>Groko13</scratchsig> 01:56, 27 June 2020 (UTC)

Hi folks! On the topic of reviving [[S:CPND]], I have another suggestion. My previous suggestion (collapsing discussions) got implemented, but it is a very minor change. As someone who usually updates the featured images, I was thinking about a discussion that I personally would like people to participate in, [[Scratch Wiki talk:Community Portal/Not Done#Suggestion: Scratch Wiki:Featured Image Suggestions]]. That specific discussion has been going on since August 2018 and it hasn't yet come to a conclusion.
:Maybe not as a whole page, but as a section in [[Simulation Projects]]?<br/>{{User:Bigpuppy/Real Signature}} 16:11, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
 
::Mall simulators, let me explain, are studios where people can register and make projects and add them to the studio. These projects are shops, where people (that are registered in a mall simulator the shop is added in) can buy from. Mall simulators invent their own currency, not tradeable for real money, that is used within the mall simulator itself. So, I don't really think it would fit there since it's technically not a project. <scratchsig>Sti_scratch</scratchsig> 08:54, 23 November 2018 (UTC)

As I understand it, with Wikipedia's Feedback request service, when a discussion needs an outside editor to provide comment, a bot comments on the talk page of someone who has added their name to the list. I'd like to make it clear: '''my suggestion would not require a bot.''' Wikipedia needs stuff like that because it's giant.
  
1:Welcome to the 16{{th}} Compliment Tuesday! November 27{{th}}, 2018.
+
Basically, when a discussion is going stale or needs a few more editors to provide feedback, a proactive editor can comment the Discussion Invitation template (currently at [[User:Bigpuppy/Discussion Invitation System/Template]]) on a few user talk pages of people who have signed up to be invited to discussions.
2:WOW! Look at all these compilments. This is truly amazing!
 
  
'''What is Compliment Tuesday?'''
+
Here are some examples of when this would be useful:
 +
* For asking editors to participate in a [[S:CP]] or [[S:CPND]] discussion that has gone inactive or that has a deadline
 +
* For asking editors their opinion on a discussion on the talk page of an article that only a few people are participating in
  
Compliment Tuesday is a way of showing appreciation to other Wikians. Feel free to congratulate someone for finishing a large page, or even just give minor thanks for a minor edit. Just remember to keep everything positive! {{e|:)}}
+
I think this will help with more than reviving [[S:CPND]], though {{-}} it will help on ''any'' discussion that isn't getting the attention it deserves.
  
'''How to Compliment'''
+
I've decided to start this program up in my userspace, though if people like it maybe it can be moved to project space (the Scratch Wiki namespace). The list of people who have signed up is currently at [[User:Bigpuppy/Discussion Invitation System/List]] (as of writing, only me). If you'd like to sign up, please do!<br/>{{User:Bigpuppy/Real Signature}} 18:53, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

:I think this is a great idea! <scratchsig>Groko13</scratchsig> 19:10, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
 +
::It could be a good idea, but I'm not sure that it's really matter. As you said before, Wikipedia is a big place and a lot of discussion creators in [[S:CPND]] is inactive/quitted Scratch. Also, I think a lot of the discussions are not necessary. For example, are you think "Secret Compliments" important today? Also, asqwde has been inactive since 8 months.
 +
::I'm supporting main idea, also it can be helpful for usual stuffs, but also nobody cannot use it for old Not Done topics. Additionally, I suggest another idea; Scratch Wiki could have multiple portals. For example; Scratch Modifications portal, Extensions portal, etc. Maybe not for now, but it could be helpful when discussions are too much.{{User:Ahmetlii/sig}} 20:03, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
 +
:::Well, I don't think that it matters that some people in [[S:CPND]] are inactive; that doesn't mean their discussions aren't relevant anymore. As for the discussions that you don't think are relevant anymore, like "Secret Compliments," you should discuss that in the appropriate section at [[S:CPND]] and make sure people agree with you. You could get people to add to the discussion on whether they are relevant anymore using the system I suggested {{e|;)}}<br/>{{User:Bigpuppy/Real Signature}} 20:08, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

{{outdent|6}}Oh yes, I remember when I first suggested that. I was thinking about it recently actually - what a coincidence!
  
We have a whole wiki page on it! {{e|:D}} You can find it here: [[Scratch Wiki:Compliment Tuesday|Compliment Tuesday]]
+
I would like to add my name to the list, however one quick thing: why do we link to our Scratch profiles and not our Wiki profiles, or perhaps our Wiki talk page? Surely linking to our userpage would make a lot more sense, unless there is a specific reasoning for not doing this that I am not understanding.
  
 +
In any case, I think this is a fantastic idea. Glad to see it's working already! Thanks for taking this on, bigpuppy. :){{User:Drunken Sailor/Signature}} 15:34, 2 July 2020 (UTC)

== Suggestion: Request for a new page. ==

Hello there!
  
Hi! I noticed that when you are logged in the wiki and search for a page that doesn't exist like [https://en.scratch-wiki.info/w/index.php?search=Goldfish&title=Special%3ASearch Goldfish], it says: "'''Create the page "[[Goldfish]]" on this wiki!'''" but when you are logged out all it says is "There were no results matching the query." So my suggestion is instead of saying "There were no results matching the query." when logged out it should say "'''Request the page "[https://scratch.mit.edu/discuss/topic/294197/ Goldfish]" on this wiki!'''" Thoughts?<scratchsig>Jakel181</scratchsig> 01:05, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

In case you didn't know, I'm a Forum Helper (https://scratch.mit.edu/studios/3688309/) on Scratch, which means I generally help out on the the Scratch discussion forums. One day, I headed over to the Community Portal and it seemed like a sort of "discussion forums" within the Scratch Wiki, and I understand that the concept is different, but for me it personally seemed that way.

Anyways, I mostly help around a lot on the Suggestions forum, which, yet again, redirects to the Community Portal since there are a lot of suggestions for the Scratch Wiki here. One difference is though, that the Scratch Team and some Scratchers (like me) enforce the rule of "constructiveness" while making posts, and I'm pretty sure most of you know what that means but I'll just clarify:
Next week is officially #CSEDWeek, and with that I will be sharing many of the resources on the wiki on the wiki. Are there any specific resources for Computer Science Education that I should be linking to? <scratchsig>Makethebrainhappy</scratchsig> 02:11, 1 December 2018 (UTC)
 
:All CS education? Or just Scratch? In any case, I definitely recommend that you link to the Tips page, and also probably the discussion forums. For outside Scratch, I recommend [https://www.python.org/ the python website].{{User:Drunken Sailor/Signature}} 16:40, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

* It means that one does not simply post "Support!", "Good idea!", or "+1!" and explain why they like the suggestion, that they provoke discussion, and look for possible issues instead of continuosly leaning on one side, like "I love this suggestion" or "I hate this suggestion"
  
I don't know if anyone else notices, but sometimes the random pages give the same pages multiple times. If we want more pages to be ''better'' and more ''improved'', this should make sure that the random page gives a new page since, let's say, the past hour or two. Support? <br/>{{User:12944qwerty/Templates/Sig}} 22:47, 7 December 2018 (UTC)
+
* It means that one does not simply add one sentence to act as if their post is constructive. For example, "Support, because this might be useful for many Wikians!" seems constructive but it isn't really constructive, because they're not stating how it would be useful for many Wikians or why it would be.
:Random page is a feature built into MediaWiki, so it's not something we can just change on a whim. I also just opened it 15 times and didn't get any duplicates, so it was most likely a coincidence that you got the same page multiple times.<scratchsig>jvvg</scratchsig> 03:17, 8 December 2018 (UTC)
 
  
==Wikian?==
+
Now, I've been looking around in the CP, and I've been seeing a couple of responses just saying "+1!" or merely "Support!" without provoking any further discussion and merely showing your satisfaction. So I thought, maybe, we could enforce the constructive rule on the CP as well. Especially because the ideas here much more mature and complex, and not like Scratch where it's just new blocks or random new features.  
So, I was wondering if I was a wikian and looked [[Scratch Wiki:Wikians|here.]] I haven't joined for longer than a month, (one of the requirements for software to detect) but I can edit [https://en.scratch-wiki.info/w/index.php?title=User:Apple502j/Wikian_Test&action=edit Apple502j's test page] to see if you are no longer a new wikian. I am able to edit it. Is there something wrong with the test page? Is there another page I can use to see if I am a wikian or not? <br/>{{User:12944qwerty/Templates/Sig}} 04:04, 8 December 2018 (UTC)
 
:Are you sure you were able to edit it? Your account isn't a month old, though you do have over 50 edits. You may have been able to view the source, but that's different from being able to edit it. Try editing again, but this time save (undo your edit if it succeeds).{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 05:40, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

== Bot Shortcut for GA Stats ==
+
I do agree that many people are already following this rule, but maybe just enforce it more? I do think it'll be incredibly helpful for the type of suggestions being given here.
  
GA stats should have a a shortcut. Like [[B:IWB/GA]]? {{User:Apple502j/siggy}} 02:54, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
+
<small>wow... that's... long</small>
:Actually, I think it should be a main shortcut like [[S:GA]] -> [[User:InterwikiBot/GA_Stats]]{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 03:37, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
+
<scratchsig>Nambaseking01</scratchsig> 09:31, 4 July 2020 (UTC)
 +
:While I understand what you're saying, I don't think it would be necessary to enforce constructiveness here. The discussion forums and Community Portal are two fundamentally different things. The Scratch Team has an extremely large userbase. Thus, there are many possible people contributing to discussions, and also many people that decisions will affect. It makes sense for there to be an expectation that people are constructive. However, as of writing, there are 72 [[Special:ActiveUsers|active users]] on the Scratch Wiki. This is much smaller than the userbase on Scratch. And yes, you might argue that our "userbase" is not just our editors but also our readers; yes, but our editors are the ones who are supposed to make the decisions here.
  
== Assets Page ==
+
:Anyway, on the topic of having fewer active users on the wiki, it helps to see if someone ''supports'' your idea. And it matters, too. If multiple people like your idea, it probably has a better chance of being successful here. This is in stark contrast to the Suggestions Forum, where that is simply not true. This is why simply saying "support" or "no support" on that forum is not helpful, nor constructive.
  
Hi everyone! On the Community Portal on the forums, there has been a request for a page about assets on the wiki. I just want to get your opinion on whether it'd be worthwhile writing an article on it?
+
:In summary, yes, I think it would be ''helpful'' for people to provide a reason that they like or dislike an idea (perhaps we could recommend it), but I don't think it's necessary to ''enforce'' it. I don't think that it's fair to compare the convention ''here'' to the convention ''on the Suggestions Forum,'' because the CP is fundamentally different from the Suggestions Forum and the discussion forums in general. That said, if someone ''dislikes'' an idea, I think it is more necessary to provide reasoning than if they like it, as they are disagreeing with the reasoning provided by the OP, and thus need to provide their own reasoning.

The [[Special:ActiveUsers|Active Users List]] shows people that are active from the last 30 days. The only flexibility is to hide bots and admins. I feel we could add a little more flexibility of seeing the active users from most active to least activeness instead of alphabetically. Thoughts? <br/>{{User:12944qwerty/Templates/Sig}} 15:23, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
+
::Good idea! I suppose that could work too.<scratchsig>Nambaseking01</scratchsig> 09:23, 6 July 2020 (UTC)
:[[Special:ActiveUsers]] is built into media wiki directly, I don't see any configuration settings or MediaWiki interface pages for it. (Not to say that there isn't I just haven't found any) So this most likely would have to be done with an extension which is kind of impractical for us. <scratchsig>Jakel181</scratchsig> 22:20, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

In the [[Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-editing|editing section in preferences]], there is a option for step-by-step publishing which adds the publish button on the top of the edit box.

:I had the same problem. It is because step by step publishing is a lab and still in development, so it is not recommended to be used.

== Standardized signatures ==
  
Hi everyone, just wanted to say - Scratch 3 gets released very soon, so that means that we need to make sure everything about 2.0 has been "archived" on the wiki. Are there any pages that need more info to do with 2.0? (e.g images?) Because after about a month, there won't be a chance to screenshot parts of the website etc.

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).

I mean, we could always just add /Server_Faults as the path and switch this there. It wouldn't be that big of a hassle, you can just copy and paste it. And there are more and more coming anyways, so it's not oing to be too long before it gets very long.

So, there are currently four lists of deleted pages on this wiki:

  • Mathfreak231's, which is the most comprehensive but is no longer updated in his absence
  • Mine, which is a duplicate of Mathfreak's but hopefully more organized
  • Jammum's Deleted Pages, which are more recent than either of the above
  • Jammum's All Deleted Pages, which seems to be more recent and extensive but has the least information (it's only a list of titles)

I suggest (from jakel181's idea) that these become a single page in projectspace, something like "Scratch Wiki:Deleted Pages". This could be a Scratch Wiki Project.

Advantages
  • More organized
  • One place for all
  • Can be updated by anyone
Disadvantages
None I can think of off the top of my head

Thoughts? Shall we do it?

I think we should! I like the style yours is in, snice it is more oragized, and a bit easier to find pages, so we should base the page off that.

Just to remind everyone, I have not finished my "All Deleted Pages" page at the time of posting this message. It will be contributed to frequently.
Jammum (talk | contribs) 14:55, 26 April 2019 (UTC)
To Kenny2Scratch: This will be a great idea, as it will make it more accessible to people. If this get made, maybe put it could be put in the "Navigation" box on the side?

I don't think it goes in the sidebar, it's not that important; however, come to think of it, this is a nice candidate for a Scratch Wiki Project. Thinkest you that this is a suitable mission to embark upon?

Okay, I just created a page called User:TenType/Deleted Files, was scrolling through the Community Portal, and found this discussion. :/
Maybe this page could contain pages only and not files? (I really spent a lot of time and effort onto my deleted files page) Anyways, still waiting for a response on whether or not this project will be started.

Welcome templates

Yes Done

A lot of people have their own "welcome" templates that they post on new users' talk pages. This is a great idea, because new users can get to know new people and, of course, feel welcomed. However, the welcoming effect starts diminishing when things like this happen:

That's a lot of welcomes.PNG

10 different people jumping on the new user is too much - it's not welcoming, it's downright scary! How would you feel if you created an account somewhere and you were confronted with a wall of "welcome"s?

To counteract this, I don't propose forbidding welcomes entirely; what I instead think should be the case is that we have a limit on how many welcome messages can be on a talk page - probably around 4-5 at the most. That does mean it turns into a race as to who can get their message on first, but that can't be helped - if you want to get your message in, ya gotta be active at the right time.

I don't think there's much room for debate on the necessity of the limit, but what can be bargained is the limit itself - how many topics do you think is too many?
Kenny2scratch logo.jpg kenny2scratch  Talk  Contribs  Directory 
07:59, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

I think that a limit of 4-5 is a great idea :) I still remember when I started the messages really confused me. Also, I'd say that if you post a welcome message, it should have a variation of the simple title "Welcome!". I tried to make mine a bit different. I like the "All aboard!" one. Maybe we could say if there are more than eight messages already, really don't put one, but if there are 4-5 try not to put your template, but a personal message is okay.

I see this level of enthusiasm as very exciting. While it may be a little intimidating, I look at it more as a great way to integrate yourself with the community immediately and meeting many of the people who you will be working with side-by-side. Nonetheless, I would love to see more data on this and interview some people on their experiences regarding this to see if it does have a negative impact.
Makethebrainhappy (talk | contribs) 00:35, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
As we are bargaining for this, I was just wondering what we'll be doing now. Should we be limiting welcomes now? Or do we continue welcoming as much as we can :D?

I was just scrolling through the CP, and this caught my eye. Great idea, I definitely think this needs to be considered. I understand that people are just trying to be kind by sending the welcome messages, but it would almost be like a horror film for the person who owns the account. I think 4-5 welcome templates are enough, but I think there needs to be a break between even those. Getting 4-5 welcomes in a couple of seconds is also not the best of ideas.
Nambaseking01 (talk | contribs) 17:55, 14 November 2019 (UTC)
We should ask new users for their opinion on this right after they get the welcomes.
TenType (talk | contribs) 00:06, 30 November 2019 (UTC)
I think 4-5 is a good limit. I personally liked getting welcomes, but I only got 3 of them.
Groko13 (talk | contribs) 14:49, 30 December 2019 (UTC)
I'm a fairly new user, and I got 4 welcomes. It seemed fine for me, so I agree that 4-5 sounds like a good limit.

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────How about one or two users post a template, or we just use the automatic one at the top, and then people below can put encouraging words (not large templates) followed by a sig? This would not be too much for the user, but still shows lots of people are there to support them!

Maybe we can create a welcome template, and a bot automatically adds it for every new user. Any user edit it (just like an article). Maybe there could be in it for all the users that contributed.
VFDan.png VFDan  Talk  Contribs  On Scratch  19:21, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Please fix your signature!
No, the point of each user having their own welcome template is for them to be specific to the user welcoming - a different message for each one. If they just wanted to add their name to a stock welcome they could reply to the {{welcome}} message added by default. However, 10 users posting personalized welcomes is a lot of different welcomes to read - which is why it needs limiting.
Seems like 4-5 is the limit we've agreed on; for the sake of looseness, the limit is now 5 welcome messages at most on any new user's talk page (not including the {{welcome}} message; does not apply to users created before this decision).
@Nambaseking01: Limiting the rate of welcomes is a separate topic that should be proposed separately.
This topic is now Yes Done

Block Problems

No Not done, as blocks are still unfinished or broken
Today I started to finish up the script for How to Evaluate an Expression, and things got out of hand. When I first completed it, I realized I did some of the block loops wrong, and it like wrapped around some things that I didn't want to wrap around, while I also couldn't get this one if then else block to wrap around something else — it was all a mess. I cleaned some of it up, but I am afraid I'll make it worse and I already spent more than an hour on it. Also, I have to save it each time I want to check if it is correct, since for some reason the blocks won't load up in Show preview mode (it appears in code) but loads when the changes are saved. Can somebody please fix up the script to match the one in post #19 in this forum topic?
TenType (talk | contribs) 04:22, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

I hope you're prepared to put in the amount of work involved, because The Wikipedia Adventure is really involved (I've done it once before) and a lot of stuff has to be created for it to work. I like the idea, but I don't know if anyone here has the follow-through to actually focus on a project like this that could take a week or more to make.
If you think you can commit yourself (and furthermore get others to commit themselves) you can make a Scratch Wiki Project of it. Good luck!

Moving Plural page titles to singular

Yes Done On the wiki, there are many page titles like "Blocks" and "Numbers". This makes it confusing to users and editors, as well as links. "[[Block]]s makes a link to singular that appears plural, but there is no equivalent for singular-appearing plural-leading links.

Many page titles cannot be made into plural form. Having both plural and singular forms is confusing and creates other problems. Singular page titles are also easier to work with, as I said in my first post. Also, remember to not change other users' posts without permission.
Should I put {{move}} on the plural pages?

IWB Interwiki Check

Hello everyone. It's been awhile since IWB has scanned the wikis for interwikis to add, and now is probably a good time to do that!

Below you'll find a list of proposed edits from the bot. It would be helpful if a few people could look at some proposed edits and double check them for errors:

User:InterwikiBot/Proposed_Edits

Several issues have already been discovered:

  • Not properly handling empty interwikis, ex en:, see the ja homepage
  • test -> tw
  • The bot is proposing adding interwikis to other pages when they already have an interwiki for that language
  • Help:Namespaces has a flat out wrong interwiki suggestion

This might take another round or two to remove perviously undiscovered bugs, but with the wikis growing more complex, it's important to get them now. Thank you

Advertising article

We really need to overhaul this article. A lot of it is just advertising the product. For example, do we really need a "Buying" section?
Groko13 (talk | contribs) 23:17, 14 March 2020 (UTC)

Scratch Bit has also a buying section. But the entire page is just an ad.
Scramaso (talk | contribs) 08:12, 17 March 2020 (UTC)
I've moved the GoPiGo article to the creator's userspace (which has precedent - see the last topic on User talk:DexterInd) and removed the categories & advertisement notes.
Scratch Bit is an official Scratch product and must be documented. It stays.

Sonic the Hedgehog

Right now the wiki is saturated with Sonic the Hedgehog stuff, specially the AF pages. Lots of example of stuff are Sonic stuff. The entire wiki feels like an indirect Sonic ad. We should change a lot of this examples.
Scramaso (talk | contribs) 11:25, 24 March 2020 (UTC)

Other than April Fools pages, could you give a few examples?
Ravenclaw900 (talk | contribs) 13:46, 24 March 2020 (UTC)
Just wiki search Sonic or Hedgehog. Also a lot of examples are by PrincessPandaLover and need to be changed int more generic stuff.
Scramaso (talk | contribs) 14:29, 24 March 2020 (UTC)
If I'm not mistaken, the Sonic stuff is limited to only AF pages. It's fine to gradually phase AF pages away from Sonic content while making other edits to the pages, but don't go mass editing out Sonic stuff. (Do note that I don't really see a problem with a Sonic theme in AF pages lol)
Kenny2scratch logo.jpg kenny2scratch  Talk  Contribs  Directory

Suggestion: Mention that the Privacy Policy and Disclaimers are in German

Currently, the links under the 'Legal' category do not are not mentioned that they are in German. I suggest that the footer mentions that the content under the Legal category are in German.

Without mentioning that, some people might be confused that they are in German, and not English. They also cannot be translated into English without it being inaccurate.
Jammum Icon.png Jammum (💬 Talk - ✍️ My 2,158 Contribs - 🐱 Scratch) 13:21, 28 March 2020 (UTC)

Why would they be German?
OurPrincess (talk | contribs) 16:35, 28 March 2020 (UTC)
The Wiki servers are located in Germany and therefore follow the rules/regulations of Germany.
Makethebrainhappy (talk | contribs) 00:33, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
Would you be amenable to using the external link marker on them instead? Putting "(German)" on a footer link seems unorthodox...
Kenny2scratch logo.jpg kenny2scratch  Talk  Contribs  Directory 
10:33, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
The servers are German because they are owned by Martin Wollenweber, who lives in Germany.
OurPrincess (talk | contribs) 11:55, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
Maybe the Privacy Policy and the Disclaimers can be individually labelled that they are in German, or is that still 'unorthodox'? They could have 'in German' put in brackets after them.
Jammum Icon.png Jammum (💬 Talk - ✍️ My 2,158 Contribs - 🐱 Scratch) 13:29, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
I think it's fine the way it is, but it should get translated for other wikis so we know what happens to our data.

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Did you read the OP? They can't be translated accurately.

Having a notice at the top of the actual pages saying something similar to what I say on my userpage (the "many other wikis link here" thing), ideally translated into everything, would also be fine for me - I'm only opposed to changing the footer.

Updating Translators page

The Scratch Team is no longer actively maintaining the translators page https://en.scratch-wiki.info/wiki/Translators

I'd like to remove the Scratch Team only badge and allow folks from the translation community to update the page. Ideally there would be just one or two people per language that would keep things up to date for their language.

Would there be a different process for translators to join as a wiki editor? Are there different suggestions for having the translators page managed by the community?

Thanks, --Chris
-unsigned comment by Chrisg (talk | contribs)

Ok! I'll remove the banner at the top of the page for you. As for the translation community updating the page, we can not allow a different application processes for translators joining the wiki, though they are welcome to follow the current application processes and join the wiki that way. Also if they chose not to join they can always leave a post on the Community Portal in the forums with what should be updated and one of our editors will happily make the change. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do.
Jakel181 (talk | contribs) 16:47, 30 March 2020 (UTC)
How will you let all the translators know they can use the Scratch CP, or join the Wiki for editing the page?
Nambaseking01 (talk | contribs) 15:41, 15 April 2020 (UTC)
The translators have internal commmunication mechanisms including email blasts via transifex or messages in slack. I believe that Chris can easily relay the message to the translators if necessary. Yes Done

Turbo Mode

Yes Done

This article is very outdated, I believe we should create an article on Turbo Mode itself.

VFDan.png VFDan  Talk  Contribs  On Scratch  22:16, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

I agree - there is an article about Detecting Turbo Mode, but there doesn't seem to be one about Turbo Mode, as Turbo Mode just redirects to that article. :)
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk | contribs 17:15, 4 April 2020 (UTC)
The problem seems to be fixed as there is now a template saying it is from a historical perspective.
OurPrincess (talk | contribs) 18:06, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
There is - however, I don't believe that is the problem here. I think the problem VFDan is referring to is that there is not an article about Turbo Mode.
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk | contribs 18:11, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
That is what I am referring to; I believe we should create an article about Scratch 3.0's Turbo Mode

VFDan.png VFDan  Talk  Contribs  On Scratch  00:19, 6 April 2020 (UTC)
You could create an article entitled "Turbo Mode (3.0)" and redirect Turbo Mode to that page instead of to the historical page.
Makethebrainhappy (talk | contribs) 13:30, 9 April 2020 (UTC)
Created the page, and changed the redirect. However the page is in dire need of expansion.

VFDan.png VFDan  Talk  Contribs  On Scratch  17:18, 9 April 2020 (UTC)
Marked as Yes Done however the article still needs expansion

WikiMonitor is hurting me

Yes Done

Wow, so I just added the {{Done}} and {{-}} templates before the title of a message, and I signed my message under it. The only thing is, I accidentally forgot to add the done thing, so I had to edit my post and put that there. That message was from Wikibot. And then, when I did that, I got another message from WikiMonitor saying that I didn't sign the post meanwhile I'd just added the templates to the title.

Now, maybe this sounds very stupid, but I'm pretty sure I've done this before and WikiMonitor didn't come at me like that. What's going on?
Nambaseking01 (talk | contribs) 15:37, 15 April 2020 (UTC)

The problem is that you forgot to sign the edit where you added {{done}}, which caused WikiMonitor to message you. I've left a tip on your talk page (wow you already responded to it)

Lancer PFP trend

In the last few days, a PFP trend about Lancer from Deltarune has been on many Scratcher's PFPs. They normally replace the eyes and mouth of their face to Lancer's eyes and mouth. @-BoyMcBoy- was the first popular Scratcher to do it, and he got the face from @MusicManJoe. Is this notable enough to add to the Scratch Trends page?

Scratch Wiki YT Channel

Hi everyone! I wanted to put a little feeler out there to see who was interested in participating/creating content for a possible Scratch Wiki YT Channel. We would publish wiki-like content within YT's video format. We could then link to this content from within the Wiki. You could for example create a Scratch tutorial, run-through a certain block or feature, or discuss a recent community venture you participated in. If y'all are interested in seeing this idea come to fruition, please comment to express your interest and volunteer yourself for content creation. Thanks!

I'm interested too — I'd like to help make a few videos. I already have a YouTube channel but I can't share it because of my real name and face reveal. I'm just ten years, but I don't think that will affect anything as I enjoy talking on-camera and a lot of people tell me I have a talent for vlogging / gaming (not to brag though). I also have a Scratch tutorial series, so I already have some experience with it.

Scratch Links

Yes Done

Maybe we can add a new brackets thing for Scratch Links. For example: [[Scratch/User:Example]] or [[Scratch/Project:Example]]. For other links, we could just do [[Scratch:{stuff after scratch.mit.edu/}]]. Thoughts?
VFDan.png VFDan  Talk  Contribs  On Scratch  23:30, 27 April 2020 (UTC)

My reasoning for this is that it looks much better if it looked like an internal link instead of an external link.

"Scratch/Project:" is too long of a prefix IMO and also they shouldn't have caps. I've been considering adding project: and studio: - is there any other type of thing on Scratch that gets linked to often?
Kenny2scratch logo.jpg kenny2scratch  Talk  Contribs  Directory 
00:53, 5 May 2020 (UTC)
Well we already have Discussion Forums, possibly user:? I don't know how often this would be linked to though.
VFDan.png VFDan  Talk  Contribs  On Scratch  14:48, 5 May 2020 (UTC)────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────

I created a template for Scratch links in here and it worked. Everybody can use it with this code:{{scratch|write there your link code(when you write studios and projects' code, don't use their names)|write in there why are you using it:user,studio,project}}
Ahmetlii (talk | contribs) 20:20, 5 May 2020 (UTC)

Ahmetlii, please correct me if I'm wrong, but your template still seems to produce external links. VFDan is suggesting a system that would produce internal links. I've re-marked this section as No Not done.
Also, a template-related thing: you put <onlyinclude> tags around the {{/doc}}, but they should have been <noinclude> tags, because you don't want to include the doc in the template. Overall though, nice template! :)
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk | contribs 20:40, 5 May 2020 (UTC)

user: won't work - that conflicts with the User: namespace. I've added project: and studio: now, though. We'll need to figure out an alternative for linking to Scratch users - maybe users:?

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── TenType pointed out something very relevant - Project:104 links to Scratch Wiki:104! I'd forgotten about this - "project" is a namespace alias for whatever the meta-namespace is. I've renamed project: to projects: to get around this; and for consistency, studio: is now studios: and profile is now users: (the last one because "users" isn't a namespace while "user" is). The scratch: prefix remains unchanged. FYI!
