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).

Scratch News Change

When we put a new SDS into the news, the default message that we put is "The Scratch Team has released a new SDS!". But, it's actually the Scratch Team and the SDS curators, in fact, the SDS curators brainstorm many ideas for themes, and they all voice their opinions on new themes and when they should be released. Maybe we should change it to say "The Scratch Team and the SDS curators"?

Shortcut deletions

Yes Done

In the old S:GUIDELINES, there were shortcuts to many sections and rules listed there - there were around 15 shortcuts leading to sections of that page. Can an admin or EW go through them and see which shortcuts need to be deleted?
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 02:45, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

I would but don't know what you mean... Shortcuts to what? All links seem fine to me,

derpmeup (talk | contribs) 18:52, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
I went through the old shortcuts, deleted them, and put new shortcuts in.

Newer example projects

On most project tutorial articles it seems like the examples are all from 2010 or 2011 and made in Scratch 1.4. Maybe they should be updated to Scratch 2.0 projects that newer users could relate to more?
Djdolphin (talk | contribs) 02:55, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

That's not a bad idea! Feel free to start working on some new tutorial articles and move the 1.4 tutorials to have (1.4) at the end of their name :)

SSSLogo.png SuperSmashScratch (talk | contribs) 20:36, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
Dig this, you who questions my activeness. If I get on 10 times a day and make 1 edit each time I check RC, and derpmeup gets on twice a day and makes 10 edits. Which is more, 10 or 2? 10. That makes me more active. boom. But it seems like derpmeup is more active because they make 20 edits a day, not 10. Don't try; I always win.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 21:46, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Any articles that I can edit that need cleaning up or updating?

I'm in the mood to edit some articles tomorrow, so I'm wondering what articles need a serious case of clean-up or updating so that I can work on editing them. Or at least ones that need it very badly. The wiki is good, but "good" is not good. We need to strive for excellence.

All of those categories will work. Sometimes, though, I'll press random page to get to a random page, and if it's not about a block (because there's not too much to write about them), I'll press edit and expand what I can. I definitely do use all those categories too, though ;)

Why don't we allow capitalization redirects?

Sometimes, if you search something but use the wrong capitalization (or manipulate the URL to get to a page), it'll say the page won't exist. I'm just wondering - why don't we allow capitalization redirects? I don't see anything bad about them...
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 01:24, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

I'm asking this because jvvg deleted every one of them back in March and deletes all of the new ones, but what's the reason for not having them?
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 02:13, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
At some point we decided to dump them, but i can't find the discussion.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 10:37, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
The department of redundancy department doesn't approve of them. In real words, they're unnecessary redirects. Having two pages of the same name except for capitalization just wastes space (not so much on the disk but in the search bar). If I am searching for a page and I type in the first two words (assuming several pages begin with those two words), a capitalization redirect is one potential entry on the list that won't go to another actually different page.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 14:33, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
The department of redundancy department? :P I think a better idea would be a more optimized search engine.
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 02:05, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I completely agree. Honestly, I kind of support having caps redirects because of the reasons I stated, so maybe we should add a more optimized search engine.

New features!

scmb1 has implemented two new features:

  • Hiding specific revisions from a page (like what we do when a user shares contact info)
  • Adding an EW level of protection

Admins, if you have any questions, I can probably answer them.

Thank you scmb1 for putting this in!
jvvg (talk | contribs) 02:02, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Awesome! Did she just edit the github, or the main server?

The main server. GitHub doesn't actually affect what's on the server, stuff needs to be manually pulled.

Algebra Page

I think there should be a Algebra page. I mean scratch uses a lot of it. It wouldn't need to explain anything too in depth. Thoughts? Someone else would have to write it because I'm in Middle School and I don't know much about Algebra yet. until next year!I get to take Algebra I as a 8th grader!
-PRO- (talk | contribs) 11:42, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

I'm not sure about this one. This wiki is supposed to be about Scratch, not algebra. If you tie the article in back to Scratch, I think it might be good. Maybe you can make a mockup?
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 16:46, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
I can think about it. I needed help that's why. I won't take Algebra until next year.
-PRO- (talk | contribs) 22:14, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
It's an interesting idea, but I agree with ErnieParke - it doesn't really have to do with Scratch. Maybe you could join Wikipedia and edit the algebra article there? I'm Fimatic on Wikipedia, I'll help you out if you join :)

Several people have been posting stuff on the talk pages of banned users and discussing those users elsewhere. Please stop, as this is a violation of Scratch policy. After all, we are a sub-domain of Scratch. Any further discussions revolving banned users (either on the main site or Wiki) will result in the discussion being removed and revisions deleted.

How to Create Math Images

Hmm... I really can't think of any programs that would do that right now, so you should probably start off by just using the Scratch paint editor.

I think it would be cool to have a modern-day game from 2013-14 to show the article how much graphics have even improved since then. Perhaps someone who plays on high-ultra could get me a nice 720p screenshot of a video game from today? Does anyone have Shadow of Mordor? That could have some very pretty screenshot of the second world as long as you do not capture the killing part.

A better thing to ask would be if anybody had Steam ;P

I don't have Steam but I play Minecraft and to make my video game videos I play emulators

Fifth, I play Ro___x. Again, It is usually Ro___x forums and building games for Ro___x. (Censored the game name because I do not want to make people quit Scratch and go there)

– KrIsMa's first userpage revision

Not a secret anymore even though it was very obvious what it was with the censoring :P
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 23:35, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
I'm really curious on how you found that revision :P
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 23:43, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
I was bored one day and decided to see the first revisions of the userpages of some people :P

Hey so can anyone get me a screemshot????

screamshot? oh ok :P graphic wise, steam > roblox so derpmeup?
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 22:52, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
Steam not Roblox. Does anyone have Shadow of Mordor? Or any modern PC game not Roblox?
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 22:55, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
can't you just google image a screenshot?
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 23:03, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
That is a really good question.

userpage rule

we should have an exception to that rule that we can edit userpages if they link to nonexistant categories, categories that they should not be in (like notuseful) nad some others i cant think of ;)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 23:45, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

Still, the userspace rule stays, and it's not breaking formatting or inappropriate.
SSSLogo.png SuperSmashScratch (talk | contribs) 23:55, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
no like exception, so an addendum to it (sorry for revert i did it two times already o.o)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 00:00, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
I kinda support that; couldn't you inform the user about the incorrect category on their talk page, though?
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 00:25, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
I don't really support this. They don't actually cause any issues, so I don't see any reason they should be removed.

An interesting side effect of revision suppression

[1] - It's cutting down on accidental rollbacks by admins because the "Change visibility" button is between patrol and rollback. </uselesstrivia...>
jvvg (talk | contribs) 01:35, 25 October 2014 (UTC)

Not for EWs, though, who aren't used to the button clicking as much.

KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 02:34, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
EWs cannot see that button, I believe.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 16:22, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
That's what I said
SSSLogo.png SuperSmashScratch (talk | contribs) 16:28, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
Really? I thought you said they could see it but weren't used to clicking it as it was new.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 17:00, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
jvvg said that it cuts down on accidental rollbacks for admins, and I said that it doesn't happen for EWs, who also aren't used to button clicking as much, so it is WAY more likely for EWs to do it.
SSSLogo.png SuperSmashScratch (talk | contribs) 17:03, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
But they can't click it.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 14:10, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

New extension?

Template Sandbox - for those who don't want to read the whole page, here it is in a nutshell: When editing a template, you can preview it in the context of an article transcluding it. This is useful if you are editing templates and want to make sure they appear properly in articles (e.g. making sure namespace detection and noinclude work). What does everyone think? Also, for reliability, it is used on Wikipedia, indicating it is pretty reliable.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 21:26, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

i say it's nice, but since it isn't going to be used a lot (like not a lot of templates are edited recently) will scmb1 want to add it?
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 21:35, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
I support it; I've had issues with templates in the past. If you try it on the page, it'll give a template loop error
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 21:56, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
I don't really think we edit templates that much. I think it is a nice extension but I don't know how often it would be used.
-PRO- (talk | contribs) 22:22, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
I think that I've had enough trouble with editing templates that it would be nice to have the extension.
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 23:17, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
Sure let's get it! It'll be nice for AF template as it's used on the main page.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 23:22, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
Yes! We're not all MediaWiki gurus, and sometimes getting a template to work properly can be a big pain. This would have helped me countless times.

New extension

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Scribunto I know this is probably a bad idea.

I don't think we need it even though I really don't understand what it does.

That sounds a little dangerous... What do we need it for?

We don't. But if there is one thing I wish this Wiki had is external style sheets.

Better Editing Stuff

^^What a horrible title. But anyways, right now I am typing in a textarea and above it are some buttons (old bitmap buttons) such as bold, italicize, I thought it would be cool if you gave me the opportunity to redesign those buttons and to add some more.
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 02:56, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

That's actually not a bad idea! I'll try and design some new ones, and see how they look :)
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 03:10, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
We used to have redirect, comment, strikethrough, and one more that i forgot, but they broke in a MediaWiki update. Those i could add back pretty easily, with the old icons. Want?
As for new icons, those would have to be uploaded to http://wiki.scratch.mit.edu/w/skins/common/images/, and we need ST for that.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 05:58, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
You mean like this?
jvvg (talk | contribs) 11:04, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
I believe so.
-PRO- (talk | contribs) 11:23, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
Should I have jvvg do it for the AF wiki too? Right now we don't even have a toolbar, and since I have such a little screen it doesn't matter for me.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 14:38, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
Wait no, I don't want it on the AF wiki, because AFAIK, before I got FTP robbed it was currently having a serverside issue.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 14:41, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
@Scimonster: If there's going to be new icons, should we get the Scratch Team's approval on it? (They are the only ones who can actually change it.)
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 15:44, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
Yes, we'd have to.
@jvvg That extension is packaged with MediaWiki 1.18+. We're running 1.22.

If you use vector than it's pretty good for mobile. But what I don't want is for it to be the default if you're on mobile.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 13:35, 1 November 2014 (UTC)
I actually do quite a bit of edits (maybe 60%?) with a phone :P

K, so let's get a mobile skin, but not make it the default when on mobile.
