== CSS ==
 +

Is the CSS on the Wiki different to normal CSS in any way? I know a little CSS so I though I would decorate my userpage, but I didnt know if it was different on here. Thanks! <scratchsig>Bananaandchoc1</scratchsig> 19:39, 29 June 2020 (UTC)
 +
:Well, we don't use CSS (in the normal way, at least). Here's an example of how you would style text:
 +
:<code><nowiki><span style="color:purple;font-family:Georgia">Hello</span></nowiki></code>
 +
:produces
 +
:<span style="color:purple;font-family:Georgia">Hello</span>
 +

(by the way, is there a reason why you want the template substituted rather than transcluded?)<scratchsig>Groko13</scratchsig> 20:58, 29 June 2020 (UTC)
 +
:Alright, I'll check it out soon. As for why I want it substituted, it's so that if the template changes over time, previous substitutions will stay the same.<br/>{{User:Bigpuppy/Real Signature}} 21:05, 29 June 2020 (UTC)

::I find it interesting how on the Scratch Wiki we tend to have a bias towards transcluding talk page templates, whereas on Wikipedia it's the opposite (there tends to be a bias towards substituting them).

:::...not that there aren't upsides and downsides to both, but on here almost everyone transcludes, for example, welcome templates, whereas a lot of templates are supposed to be substituted on Wikipedia.<br/>{{User:Bigpuppy/Real Signature}} 21:17, 29 June 2020 (UTC)

 +
:Hello! You can use <code><nowiki><span style></nowiki></code>; for example, <code><nowiki><span style="color:purple">Hello!</span></nowiki></code> makes <span style="color:purple">Hello!</span>. {{e|:)}}<br/>{{User:Bigpuppy/Real Signature}} 18:45, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

 +
 
 +
== Questions #2 ==
 +
 
 +
1. What was the code for the image on your user page "Teaching the people the alternative spellings of built-in, one request at a time? 2. how did you make a button on your user page that says "Leave me a message? and 3. Does every wikian invite new members? <scratchsig>Goldenwaves929</scratchsig> 20:55, 14 July 2020 (UTC)
 +
:1) This is the code for that: <code><nowiki>[[File:Bigpuppy Builtin.png]]</nowiki></code> However, if you'd like to add your own image to your userpage, you need to first upload it at [[Special:Upload]].
 +
:2) Here's the code for that button (keep in mind that to use it, you need to change "User talk:bigpuppy" to "User talk:Goldenwaves929": <syntaxhighlight><inputbox>
 +
type=comment
 +
default=User talk:bigpuppy
 +
hidden=no
 +
buttonlabel=Leave me a message!
 +
</inputbox></syntaxhighlight>
 +
:3) Many Wikians do, many Wikians don't. It's your choice. That said, if you choose to do it, you should read [[Scratch Wiki:Userspace#User talk pages]] first, since there's a limit of 5 personal welcome templates on each new user's talk page.

:Feel free to ask me if you have any other questions! {{e|:)}}<br/>{{User:Bigpuppy/Real Signature}} 22:32, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

<scratchsig>Goldenwaves929</scratchsig> 00:07, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

:Ah, I see. Sorry for not understanding at first. However, what do you mean "become one"? If you'd like a welcome template, I've made an easy-to-use welcome template creation system over at [[User:Bigpuppy/PW]]. Or, you could look at the code of other wikians' welcome templates (such as [[User:Bigpuppy/Welcome5|mine]]), and learn how to make one that way. {{e|:)}}<br/>{{User:Bigpuppy/Real Signature}} 00:11, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

I edited my [[User_talk:Groko13/WelcomeArchive|archive]] by substituting in people's welcome templates so that it would show the version that the template was when it was first posted. I am wondering though: is that a violation of [[S:USERSPACE#User talk pages|S:USERSPACE]]? <scratchsig>Groko13</scratchsig> 21:26, 14 July 2020 (UTC)
 +
:Hmmm, that's a hard one, as I can definitely see why you did it. I'd think yes, since substituting the template is changing how the author of the message meant the message. For example, substituting an {{t|e}} template in someone else's message is changing how they meant to use that {{t|e}} template (since they transcluded it rather than substituted it). Similarly, the people posting their welcome templates are transcluding them rather than substituting them purposefully (I'd think), and someone else changing that is changing how the author of the message meant to post the message.

Hi, I'm brand new to the Wiki and making my user page, could you let me know how to link to my Scratch profile or to any page on Scratch? I looked at two artciles on the wiki and both mentioned linking wiki articles and linking outside pages but neither (as far as I can tell) mentioned linking pages on Scratch. Thanks!

CSS

Is the CSS on the Wiki different to normal CSS in any way? I know a little CSS so I though I would decorate my userpage, but I didnt know if it was different on here. Thanks!
Bananaandchoc1 (talk | contribs) 19:39, 29 June 2020 (UTC)

Well, we don't use CSS (in the normal way, at least). Here's an example of how you would style text:
<span style="color:purple;font-family:Georgia">Hello</span>
produces
Hello
If you'd like to add CSS for the whole wiki that only you can see, though, that is done using normal CSS, in your common.css file.
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk | contribs 19:44, 29 June 2020 (UTC)

Groko13 (talk | contribs) 20:58, 29 June 2020 (UTC)

Alright, I'll check it out soon. As for why I want it substituted, it's so that if the template changes over time, previous substitutions will stay the same.
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk | contribs 21:05, 29 June 2020 (UTC)
I find it interesting how on the Scratch Wiki we tend to have a bias towards transcluding talk page templates, whereas on Wikipedia it's the opposite (there tends to be a bias towards substituting them). At least, that's what I've observed from my time on both sites.
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk | contribs 21:14, 29 June 2020 (UTC)
...not that there aren't upsides and downsides to both, but on here almost everyone transcludes, for example, welcome templates, whereas a lot of templates are supposed to be substituted on Wikipedia.

You can name any Scratchers — but they have to be relevant to the article, and you cannot advertise them (the page should also not be solely about them or their projects). You should also not link to their profile pages. For more information, visit S:NOSP. :)

Hi there! If by "posts" you mean pages:
  1. Anything that is Scratch-related and follows the Scratch Wiki guidelines is acceptable. You should check the specific new page policy for the type of article you're creating, though.
  2. You can use the search bar at the top of the screen, or look through the categories of pages.

Questions #2

1. What was the code for the image on your user page "Teaching the people the alternative spellings of built-in, one request at a time? 2. how did you make a button on your user page that says "Leave me a message? and 3. Does every wikian invite new members?
Goldenwaves929 (talk | contribs) 20:55, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

1) This is the code for that: [[File:Bigpuppy Builtin.png]] However, if you'd like to add your own image to your userpage, you need to first upload it at Special:Upload.
2) Here's the code for that button (keep in mind that to use it, you need to change "User talk:bigpuppy" to "User talk:Goldenwaves929":
<inputbox>
type=comment
default=User talk:bigpuppy
hidden=no
buttonlabel=Leave me a message!
</inputbox>
3) Many Wikians do, many Wikians don't. It's your choice. That said, if you choose to do it, you should read Scratch Wiki:Userspace#User talk pages first, since there's a limit of 5 personal welcome templates on each new user's talk page.
Feel free to ask me if you have any other questions! :)

Ah, I see. Sorry for not understanding at first. However, what do you mean "become one"? If you'd like a welcome template, I've made an easy-to-use welcome template creation system over at User:Bigpuppy/PW. Or, you could look at the code of other wikians' welcome templates (such as mine), and learn how to make one that way. :)

Is this allowed?

I edited my archive by substituting in people's welcome templates so that it would show the version that the template was when it was first posted. I am wondering though: is that a violation of S:USERSPACE?
Groko13 (talk | contribs) 21:26, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

Hmmm, that's a hard one, as I can definitely see why you did it. I'd think yes, since substituting the template is changing how the author of the message meant the message. For example, substituting an {{e}} template in someone else's message is changing how they meant to use that {{e}} template (since they transcluded it rather than substituted it). Similarly, the people posting their welcome templates are transcluding them rather than substituting them purposefully (I'd think), and someone else changing that is changing how the author of the message meant to post the message.
However, that's just my thought process, and my word is in no way policy. It may be worth asking a bureaucrat. ;)

I'd say in the case of a) it being an archive and b) the change not affecting the ultimate rendered message and c) the messages being solely welcome templates, I'm fine with you substituting them for the purposes of faithfully reproducing the state of the talk page when it was archived. However, if any of those conditions aren't the case, I don't think that's okay - don't edit live posts, don't change what gets displayed, and don't change anything but welcome templates.
