Double footnote

The footnote is doubled—it should read different for 2 and 3.
Hardmath123 (talk | contribs) 15:51, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

I feel like they should have the same footnote, [2], but I'm not sure how to do that :/

Curator Stuff

If someone (guilty smile) looks frequently at the Curator Komputor and finds out who the next curator is, should they update the curator list page?
Technoboy10 (talk | contribs) 14:53, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

Nah, because we can't really know the order that they'll go in and it's best to just leave future information to the future.
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 15:03, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
Okey-dokey then.

New Name

Perhaps this could be called List of Curators. We could also name it: Curator/List of Curators.
Joletole (talk | contribs) 14:19, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

Perhaps the second option would work.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 10:18, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
Yeah. I will move this page.

New organization

Why do we have to have a list of all the curators, then a second list with all of the same ones but only split into 1.4 and 2.0? I think we only need the second one. I only wish I knew how to get a wiki list to start at a certain number...
Mathfreak231 (talk | contribs) 00:07, 8 August 2013 (UTC)

It's not a permanent change. I was just seeing it how it looked before anything happened. If it were permanent, I would have removed the double cite notes.
Curiouscrab (talk | contribs) 00:44, 8 August 2013 (UTC)
Then you should have done it in a sandbox. What we can do have a note by OrcaCat saying that he took his curatorship in two parts - a week before 2.0, and a week during 2.0.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 08:55, 8 August 2013 (UTC)
CC, look what you caused. I put it back.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 15:44, 8 August 2013 (UTC)
Somewhat related, I figured out how to make an ordered list start at a number. See my sandbox.

Future curators

May I add a future curators section? It could help users not a) following thenextcurator and b) one that don't have chooper100's extension find out the next curators. Please notify me on my talk page. :)

Does anyone agree that this could become outdated?

It seems like a good idea, but when I come here, I see that it's not updated (this page [the number and the new person] and the curator wiki page [the number and the new person]). What do you think we should do? Also, did I put this in the right place?
Bright-Idea (talk | contribs) 23:46, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

Yes, it's in the right place :) Most of the editors are pretty good about updating this page, so if it does become outdated it'll only be for a week or so.

Sure, theoretically, it could become outdated. However, that's in the same way that every page on this wiki could become outdated if there was no one updating them. I find that we generally manage to update this page pretty quickly to be honest, it doesn't take a lot of work really.
Hamish752 (talk | contribs) 09:04, 15 September 2016 (UTC)
Okay. It's just that someone might update the "There have been 219 curators", but then they forget to change it at the bottom of the page, or something similar.
Bright-Idea (talk | contribs) 18:02, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
Well, it's like 5 curators behind right now, so I'll update it tomorrow if no one else does

I know this topic is pretty old, but for anyone who stumbles across this talk page:
This is now updated by WikiMonitor, so it won't get outdated anymore. ("Future FPCs" could though, since WM doesn't update that.)

cinnamon_bun_puff is listed twice

cinnamon_bun_puff is listed twice in the curator list. Should the duplicate be removed?
Mrcomputer1 (talk | contribs) 12:21, 31 January 2018 (UTC)

I removed it. Thanks for noticing. :

List is wrong

Za-Chary is listed as both a current and future FPC, but he should only be on there once. And the future FPC marshmallowmuffins isn't on the future FPCs. It seems it's been locked to be updated by normal wiki editors though.
EIephant_Lover (talk | contribs) 00:27, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for noticing! I've updated the future list. For future reference, the list of future curators is transcluded within the list of curators. The page where you can edit future curators is here. Yes Done
Kenny2scratch logo.jpg kenny2scratch  Talk  Contribs  Directory 
03:30, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
Okay, thanks! I'll be sure to remember that if I ever see a Future FPC error :)

Future FPC List Needs To Be Updated

The list (currently alekap, Lizzy_06, KARATEGIRL2008, laymonade) needs to be updated because alekap is now a past FPC, Lizzy_06 is the current FPC, and sillystrawberry will be after laymonade.
Cinnamon_bun_puff (talk | contribs) 01:38, 30 December 2018 (UTC)

You can update it yourself here: Curator (front page)/Future Curators

Oh, I didn't know that, thank you!
Cinnamon_bun_puff (talk | contribs) 23:12, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
It was changed fairly recently, so that the auto-curator updates would be done safely. I don't blame you for not knowing - The More You Know™

regarding -TheGreenNinja-'s shift

@-TheGreenNinja-'s shift was extended by a week since the curator following him took a hiatus off of scratch and is no longer FPC, so his shift is now exceptionally two weeks. Should we mention that? It's quite a rare event since last time it happened was in 2015
NilsTheBest (talk | contribs) 20:29, 28 November 2019 (UTC)

Good eye! I will mention it once his shift is over so WikiMonitor won't be disturbed.

Wrong Punctuation

The thirteenth reference does not have punctuation. There should be a full stop (.). (// cc @Bigpuppy)

Motion to un-protect this page

I think this page should be made unprotected. It would result in faster updating of the content.
ACS_Scratch_admin (talk | contribs) 23:49, 21 July 2020 (UTC)

No Not done, WikiMonitor does that.

Right — if you'd like to update the "Future FPCs" section, however, you can here: Curator (front page)/Future Curators That page is not protected. :)

Changing names

There should be permanent guidelines on when to change a scratchers name (currently its just case-by-case basis). I would say that when the scratch team renames an account, the name should be updated, but when a user deletes their account and starts a new one, it should not be. This is what has happened so far, and is arguably the best path in the future. Concerns?
Naleksuh.jpg Naleksuh (talk | contribs) 04:12, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

If the ST manually renames the account, that qualifies for updating the name here, I agree.
When it comes to moving accounts, I think that if the destination account becomes FPC, then both the old and new accounts should be listed as separate FPCs. If the destination doesn't become FPC, then the original account is listed and the destination is not. Does that make sense to you?
Kenny2scratch logo.jpg kenny2scratch  Talk  Contribs  Directory 
12:43, 9 August 2020 (UTC)
We would list the username that was FPC at the time, except in the case of actual renames (i.e. changing to a new account isnt a rename).
