:Hi, welcome to the wiki and thanks for your contributions! The talk page system is certainly confusing for many newcomers. Have you checked out [[Help:Welcome/4]]? If not, then that should help answer some of your questions.

:The <code>:</code>, <code>::</code>, <code>:::</code>, etc. are called indents. When you're replying to a comment with no indents, you use <code>:</code> before your comment (like I'm doing now). When you're replying to a comment with <code>:</code> before it (such as mine), you use <code>::</code> before your comment. Then <code>:::</code>, then <code>::::</code>, etc. This only changes when you're replying to a comment with ~six indents, in which case <code><nowiki>{{outdent|6}}</nowiki></code> is often used and the indenting system starts over. Indents make conversations more readable.

:Your minisig should be a subpage of your userpage, like [[User:PraCoco/Minisig]]. That should have the content of <code><nowiki><br/>{{User:PraCoco/Signature}}</nowiki></code> (unless you already have a <code><nowiki><br/></nowiki></code> on your regular signature page). Then you need to put <code><nowiki>{{User:PraCoco/Minisig}}</nowiki></code> (or wherever else you created your minisig) into your preferences. '''Make sure "Treat signature as wikitext" is checked.''' For more information, see [[S:GOODSIG]] (I was cross-referencing that page while writing this). {{e|:)}}

Hi Bigpuppy. Thank you for your help with my user page header and uploading my user icon a few months ago! I was able to put in both a header and a logo to my user page, thanks to you. I recently decided to make a custom signature and I've seen the guidelines (and I think it fits them), I just need some help with sizing it (by the way, I looked at some of the code from Leahcitmo to see the basics of how to create it). The "talk" and "contribs" buttons are way too big and I've tried to fix this using <code><nowiki><small>SmallText</small></nowiki></code>, however it didn't seem to work. My signature is [[User:J Coder26/Signature|here]]. <scratchsig>J_Coder26</scratchsig> 22:14, 22 January 2021 (UTC)
 +
:Also, if you don't mind I would appreciate it if you could leave me a message on [[User Talk: J_Coder26|my talk page]] once you respond. {{e|:)}} <scratchsig>J_Coder26</scratchsig> 00:58, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

 +
:::::I did that on purpose though, since it wasn't making "contribs" bigger so I made a new <code><nowiki><small>(Text)</small></nowiki></code> after the "•" for the word "contribs" to see if that fixed it.

::::::Hi, the "talk" text may look smaller than the "contribs" text because it's a different font.

Last Thursday, you actually joined our Discord server. But then you posted two messages and left. Then rejoined, posted three more messages, and left again.
+
== Scratch Wiki Project ==
  
I could understand you refusing to join in the first place, but I don't get why you would tantalize me like this - I wasn't on when you joined, owing to my timezone I was asleep. I assume the reason you joined was for the reasons I originally stated when inviting you (though I ''am'' curious as to how you joined, I didn't see you post your username#tag anywhere, and I don't know anyone whom you might have contacted). But why, ''why'' did you leave? The first time may have been a mistake, but the second time you literally said "I'm going to leave" before leaving. What's wrong with the server? Did we displease you in some way? Why would you get our hopes up and then just leave without explaining why?

Hi! Woulld you like to help me out in a callob I'm making about the Scratch Wiki (how to use, how to edit, etc.) Do you want to join? I'm thinking of making it like a guide.

Hi!

Hi Bigpuppy! I've been improving my ability to write articles on the wiki since I got my account approved by you!
StormMaker2395 (talk | contribs) 04:38, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

Hi, that's great! Feel free to ask me if you have any questions. :)

Image uploading does not work

I have been on the wiki for a while, more than most (~3 years), and it was you who accepted my application to be an editor. I have come across the need to put and image into an article, but any methods I try give me an error that doesn't make the remotest sense.

"The action you are attempting was automatically blocked. Please read the message below for details on why.

You must enter a comment when uploading a new version of a file or editing a file page. You must also include a category when uploading new files. If you believe that this happened in error, please contact a bureaucrat to have it fixed. A list of bureaucrats can be found here. The name of the rule that triggered this warning is described as Prevent uploads or file edits with no comment or category."

What? Where am I supposed to enter this supposed category? What does it mean by "comment?" Please clarify.


Mohie (talk | contribs) 16:27, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

Hi there! You need to enter a description of your file into the box labeled "Summary." The description must include a category, which is explained at Special:Upload#Categorizing. :)

Not able to add an image!

Hey bigpuppy, I was editing the Blockshades page today when I decided to add an image to show the process more clearly, but I am not able to! It says, we couldn't upload the image! Please tell me if I am doing something wrong... Thanks!
-unsigned comment by PraCoco (talk | contribs)

It looks like you were able to figure it out. Thanks for your work on the How to Blockshade page! If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask me. :)
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk ▪︎ contribs 18:12, 19 January 2021 (UTC)
Thanks! I wanted to know how to insert a profile picture, can you please help me with that? Also, I've seen a "Leave me a message" box, how do I add that thing on my userpage? Thanks again!
-unsigned comment by PraCoco (talk | contribs)
Hi, Help:Images explains how to insert an image on a page. If you're talking about having a signature after all of your messages, you need to add ~~~~ after each message. If you would like to customize this signature (like I have, for example), please read Scratch Wiki:Custom Signatures. This is the code for my "leave a message" box (I'm not sure where I originally learned how to make it):
<inputbox>
type=comment
default=User talk:bigpuppy
hidden=no
buttonlabel=Leave me a message!
</inputbox>
Just replace my username with yours. mw:Extension:InputBox explains other ways you can customize input boxes. If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask. :)

Newbie over here

Hi Bigpuppy. I am new to this wiki. Currently I am making a good contributions to the April fools articles(haha). I do not understand the conversation thing. Like ": "::" ":::"
-unsigned comment by scienceexplorer1 (talk | contribs)

Hi, welcome to the wiki and thanks for your contributions! The talk page system is certainly confusing for many newcomers. Have you checked out Help:Welcome/4? If not, then that should help answer some of your questions.
The :, ::, :::, etc. are called indents. When you're replying to a comment with no indents, you use : before your comment (like I'm doing now). When you're replying to a comment with : before it (such as mine), you use :: before your comment. Then :::, then ::::, etc. This only changes when you're replying to a comment with ~six indents, in which case {{outdent|6}} is often used and the indenting system starts over. Indents make conversations more readable.
Also, in the future, please add ~~~~ after all your comments. If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask me! :)

Contents/ I created a signature but it isn't appearing

Hi bigpuppy, I'm very sorry for contacting you so often, but I wanted to know how to center align the contents table. I've created my userpage, but the contents are aligned to the left. Is there a code to center align it? If yes, please tell me! I also created a signature but I have no idea on how to add it to a post. Please help! Thank you so much!
PraCoco (talk | contribs) 06:18, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

Hi, no need to apologize! I'm happy to respond to any questions you have. You need to add <center>__TOC__</center> to wherever you want the table of contents to be on your userpage if you want it to be centered. :) Regarding the signature, please make sure it contains your username with a link to your userpage. In order to use it to replace the default signature (i.e., to make it show up when you use ~~~~), please follow the instructions at S:GOODSIG. :)
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk ▪︎ contribs 06:26, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
Oh, okay. Thanks for that; but, I changed my signature and all I can see is my old signature!
PraCoco (talk | contribs) 06:39, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
What do you have typed in under "Signature" in your preferences? :)
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk ▪︎ contribs 06:41, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
The code for my signature...
PraCoco (talk | contribs) 06:51, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
Do you mean you have {{User:PraCoco/Signature}} typed in there, or the code that is on the User:PraCoco/Signature page typed in there? Also, you will want to create a minisig (as described at S:GOODSIG). It appears that you have not yet. :)
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk ▪︎ contribs 06:53, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
I have put the code which is in the webpage, and, I haven't created a minsig. I will shortly. After creating that, should I put the {{User:PraCoco/Signature}} or minsig code/link? Thank you so much! :)

Signature

Hi bigpuppy, this is PraCoco {again}. I've created a mini signature and I've placed the code inside, but when I update it, it is the same. I have no idea why this is going wrong but it isn't working Please help! Thank you so much! Raccoon1.jpgPraCocoTalkContributions 08:30, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

Your minisig should be a subpage of your userpage, like User:PraCoco/Minisig. That should have the content of <br/>{{User:PraCoco/Signature}} (unless you already have a <br/> on your regular signature page). Then you need to put {{User:PraCoco/Minisig}} (or wherever else you created your minisig) into your preferences. Make sure "Treat signature as wikitext" is checked. For more information, see S:GOODSIG (I was cross-referencing that page while writing this). :)
Also, please add your username with a link to your userpage to your signature, as per the guidelines at S:CSIG. :)

Signature Formatting

Hi Bigpuppy. Thank you for your help with my user page header and uploading my user icon a few months ago! I was able to put in both a header and a logo to my user page, thanks to you. I recently decided to make a custom signature and I've seen the guidelines (and I think it fits them), I just need some help with sizing it (by the way, I looked at some of the code from Leahcitmo to see the basics of how to create it). The "talk" and "contribs" buttons are way too big and I've tried to fix this using <small>SmallText</small>, however it didn't seem to work. My signature is here.
J_Coder26 (talk | contribs) 22:14, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

Also, if you don't mind I would appreciate it if you could leave me a message on my talk page once you respond. :)
J_Coder26 (talk | contribs) 00:58, 25 January 2021 (UTC)
Hi, sorry for the late reply. It looks like you did end up fixing it, nice job. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. :)
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk ▪︎ contribs 00:05, 28 January 2021 (UTC)
It's fine, but doesn't the word "talk" look smaller than "contribs"?
J_Coder26 (talk | contribs) 15:38, 28 January 2021 (UTC)
@J_Coder26, yes, because you closed the first <small> tag after "•".

15:46, 28 January 2021 (UTC)
I did that on purpose though, since it wasn't making "contribs" bigger so I made a new <small>(Text)</small> after the "•" for the word "contribs" to see if that fixed it. Even after the deleting the </small>, it still isn't adjusting the size of "contribs" though.
J_Coder26 (talk | contribs) 00:10, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
Hi, the "talk" text may look smaller than the "contribs" text because it's a different font. It looks like you wanted both to be the same font, but it didn't work because you forgot a dash. Please let me know if that fixes your issue. :)
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk ▪︎ contribs 02:22, 4 February 2021 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Thank you! I didn't realize that! So to make it my signature, I go to preferences and insert User:J_Coder26/Signature?

Hi! Here's the code bigpuppy gave me:
type=comment
default=User talk:PraCoco
hidden=no
buttonlabel=Leave me a message!
I hope this helps!
Hann.pngTalkContributions 09:59, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for answering their question, PraCoco. Joshuabirger, make sure to also add <inputbox> at the start of the code, add </inputbox> at the end, and replace User talk:PraCoco with User talk:Joshuabirger. :)

Hi there! I was wondering, how do I add references to a page? I tried, but it looks like a normal section of the page. Please help! Thank you so much! Hann.pngTalkContributions 09:57, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

Hi, have you seen Help:References? If so, do you have any specific questions about that page? Thanks! :)

Last user (or dog) who edited the page

Do you identify yourself as a dog? In among us I say I'm a dog that can type, which is what you are kinda pointing to in the last user (or dog) who edited the page. Anyway, How do you make that thing that lists the last person who edited a page?

Scratch Wiki Project

Hi! Woulld you like to help me out in a callob I'm making about the Scratch Wiki (how to use, how to edit, etc.) Do you want to join? I'm thinking of making it like a guide. Already, I asked @makethebranhappy and @kenny2scratch. I don't think I'm going for an animation however... Perhaps I should ask more people. Is asking that in the studio advertising? I'm not really sure...

The issue is your signature should contain a link to your userpage with your username. I can't quickly tell from looking at your sig that you are PraCoco, since I only see your avatar and not your username.

Formatting Text

Hello, {sorry again:(} I actually wanted to change the text color, but I have no idea on how to do it. Any help? Thank you so much! Raccoon1.jpgPraCocoTalkContributions 08:55, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

Note: Since I use British English, I will use colour instead of color outside of the code used to change text colour.
To change your signature's text colour, put <div style="color:the colour you want"> (replacing the italics with your desired colour, and there is no 'u' unlike the rest of this reply) before your signature's content and </div> at the end of it.
Speaking of your signature, you still need your username in your signature.
