How so many messages on talk

How do you have so many archives and have so many messages on your talk as I don't have a lot?

WM's FPC updater script

It appears that nth curator is grammatically incorrect. Take the latest one. Two-hundred-ninety-sixth should not be that. It is incorrect. It should be two-hundred-and-ninety-sixth.

Logoasqwde.png asqwde talk | contribs 12:23, 17 March 2018 (UTC)
No, "two-hundred-ninety-sixth" is grammatically correct. However, I feel like it would be better to simply say 123{{th}} instead of spelling out the number.

Confirmation Code

Hey jvvg, because you accepted my application letter I assume you know the answer to this. Why is my confirmation code not working? Also, how do you talk through a mouse
NYCDOT (talk | contribs)I AM THE ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 21:06, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

Talking through the mouse is done with the HTML "title" attribute. So this:
<span title="talking through mouse">text</span>
Makes this:
text
As for the confirmation code, why do you need one? You can't have more than one account on the Wiki.

NYCDOT (talk | contribs)I AM THE ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 14:16, 17 March 2018 (UTC)
Oh, email notifications... But that doesn't need a confirmation code, you just need to click the link that gets sent to your email. Are you not getting the link? Check your spam folder if that's the case.

Archives

How do you add an archive to a talk page?
NYCDOT (talk | contribs) 19:49, 29 March 2018 (UTC)

Hi! You can make a subpage of your talk page named "User talk:NYCDOT/Archive" or "NYCDOT/Archive 1" or something like that. Then, you can copy and paste the contents of your talk page into your new archive. After that, you can delete the messages in your talk page. Alternatively, you could use the move button.

PrincessFlowerTV (talk | contribs) 00:23, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

You use the HTML "title" attribute (this question always comes up here every time he archives his talk lol). For example, this:
<span title="Hi">hOII</span>
Makes this:

hOII

The "title" attribute can go on most HTML elements, I think.

You've said that before, too - but since Scimonster is effectively dead and you're partially the face of the Wiki, people naturally see your talking through mouse before Scimonster's - I suppose if you credited Scimonster in the thing itself more people would ask him, but then again they might still ask you since Scimonster won't respond.

I looked at your talk page, and all of the messages it left you are correct. You need to sign your post by leaving your signature (~~~~) at the end. In yours, it looks like you just included your username, but we need your full Wiki signature (the four tildes I mentioned in the previous sentence) so that there's a uniform experience and we know when you posted it. For example:
This is a post is signed properly.~~~~

Yikes! WM Mistake

I got an incorrect notifacation from WikiMonitor. I did sign my post, even though WM says I did not.

Could you help?
Mrbumppo (talk | contribs) 13:01, 5 May 2018 (UTC)

You actually did not sign your post. WM does not look at the contents of templates. Please sign your posts outside of the template.
In case you're wondering why it doesn't look at the template contents, there are two major reasons:
  • It would take extra processing time, and
  • You could change the template later to not have your signature, and nobody would notice.
Remember to sign your post on the top level next time. Thanks.

There actually was a error, but it was a bit more subtle than that. Mrbumppo added the signature in a later edit, but at that time I hadn't implemented checking for it. However, that has been fixed and should no longer be a problem.

Deleted Images

You deleted my image Scratch-online-editor.png, thinking it was a duplicate of another image. Actually, that image was the offline editor, and this is for the online editor. CrazyBoy826 (Talk|Contribs)

They both look the same to me. Both images have "Join Scratch/Sign In" at the top, while the offline editor does not, so it looks like the original image (the one I said yours is a duplicate off) was also from the online editor.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 22:20, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
It is not a duplicate because above the stage in my image, there is a texxt box, while the other one does not because it is offline.
CrazyBoy826 (talk | contribs)
There are no text boxes in your image that are not in the other image. The only text box I see in your image is the one for the project title, which is also present in the other one (File:Scratch Layout.png).

Use four tildes, that way it also includes the timestamp. WikiMonitor requires that you include the timestamp for it to be considered a valid signature.

Ambiguation Over Redirect "Upload"

You said that the page Upload was deleted because mainspace pages don't link to special or Scratch Wiki pages.It was deleted, and we eventually agreed.

A mistake in the FPC list

Hello! Someone told me that there was a mistake in the list of FPCs. The mistake is that an FPC is listed twice. Since we're not supposed to edit some parts of that page (the parts that WikiMonitor edits), I didn't fix the mistake. However, could you please change it? I looked in the history of that page, and it doesn't seem that it's a glitch with WikiMonitor, so that's good.

Transit Systems

I see you are a fan of Transit Systems. So am I! I am in love, repeat, absolute love with the MTA (New York Metro Area). My favorite line is the 7 or the F or the E. What's yours?
NYCDOT Logo.jpg NYCDOT [ Talk Page | Contributions | Directory ] 19:29, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

I've only been to NYC a few times (you can see my pictures of the NYC subway here). My favorite line I rode while there was the A train, mostly because it has several long gaps between express stops, and sailing across Manhattan and Brooklyn on an express is really fun. I actually one time did the Subway Challenge, where I rode to and stopped at all 472 stations (it took me 29 hours). I really enjoyed riding BART in San Francisco (pictures), the Los Angeles Metro (pictures), the Cleveland RTA (pictures), and the Charlotte Lynx Blue Line (pictures).
jvvg (talk | contribs) 21:57, 24 June 2018 (UTC)
Nice! How is it possible to do the Subway Challenge? I would die if I had to do that! I don't like the A Train because of the amount of Homeless People that seem to get attracted to that line. I wish to ride on the BART and the LA Metro one day. Your photos are great too! Are you also a professional photographer?
NYCDOT Logo.jpg NYCDOT [ Talk Page | Contributions | Directory ] 22:08, 24 June 2018 (UTC)
The way to do the subway challenge is to find a route that visits all 472 stations in the least amount of time possible (it must stop at each station at least once, not just pass through), and then actually get on the train and follow that route. I'm not a professional photographer, unfortunately. I'm just a college student who likes taking pictures and sometimes has too much free time.

Using templates for WM

Hi! I saw that every time WikiMonitor comments on a talk page, it re-creates the three messages over and over again. You could put the three messages as templates instead to save space and time. Can you change WM to just use user subpage templates?
CrazyBoy826-Icon.png CrazyBoy826 Talk | Contribs | Scratch account 18:40, 8 August 2018 (UTC)

The space savings would be minimal (a few hundred bytes per message), and I don't see how it would save time. However, this would also lead to having extra dependencies, where old messages would depend on current templates, and this would also mean that if I ever decide to change the message, then it will change for everyone who has ever received it.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 00:52, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
I mean new messages will use the template, old ones stay the same. By saving time I mean that more text uploaded will take a longer time to get through. If users want, they can change their bot messages to the template.
CrazyBoy826-Icon.png CrazyBoy826 Talk | Contribs | Scratch account 01:57, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
Using templates would also mean that the messages would be cache-dependant, and directly posting them avoids that; besides, templates increase the link indexing that needs to be done, so in reality the space savings are near zero.

Questions about some edits

So I uploaded a new version of the header at File:ScratchHeader.PNG but it got all squished and I don't know how to fix it...

Also, do we need the citation needed tag at Navigation_Bar#Scratch_Wiki about the headers?


Jandrewg (talk | contribs) 21:29, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

The header image looks fine to me. Your browser was probably just trying to display it in the size of the old image. Refreshing the page usually takes care of that. For the citation needed tag, that was probably put back before we had an authoritative source saying what the Scratch 3.0 header would be, so the header was basically us guessing that they would use that header for Scratch 3.0. Since it now is the header, I removed that tag since the Scratch website header can be considered common knowledge.

There's no specific reason, I just haven't. However, as is true with Scratch, GitHub is not a popularity contest, and we shouldn't be focusing on follows.

Agreed, I was just wondering.

Help me Test my Website.

Can you help me test (removed)? I included a chat widget into it. I want to test it.
To get the chat, keep refreshing until a circle in the bottom right appears. Click it, and do a test message. Then let me know here.
Then, we can have a little test chat.

THANKS! :D

How do I use welcome templates?

Hey, I noticed you place a welcome template on all new users' talk pages. I made one and I know how to paste it (it's Template:Welcome By EIephant Lover, but with two brackets on either end). I just don't know how you have managed to do one every time. Do you have some sort of bot do it for you or do you just notice when a new user comes and paste it there? For the former, is it possible that I could do this and if so how? For the latter, how can you see when a new user comes? Thanks so much :)
EIephant_Lover (talk | contribs) 20:22, 25 January 2019 (UTC)

Although I am not jvvg, you have to do it manually. :( But, you can use some tricks. I use a preload. See this link. Or, you can use Ken's welcome.js

12944qwerty: Okay, thank you :) jvvg: Is it okay to have a template of our own like that, or should it be a part of our userspace?

Edit: Someone already moved the page for me. Oops :P
EIephant_Lover (talk | contribs) 21:28, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
Remember, you can use the show preview before you save so everything is looking how you want it to look like.
12944qwerty Logo.png 12944qwerty  Talk  Contribs  Scratch  21:42, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
We can see when new users join in the recent changes or by checking the new users log regularly.

images only used on user pages

wikimoniter said that i did not categorize. how do i do it?
Ideapad-320 (talk | contribs) 01:38, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

If the image is a logo, categorize it as Category:Users' Logos, otherwise at Category:Users' Images.

Welcome Message

hi there, a while ago bigpuppy was trying to teach me how to set a welcome message to automatically go onto a new users talk page, he said something that i cannot remember, i tried what he said and it didnt work, would you mind telling me so i can get it to work?? many thanks,
Jjbullet.png JJBullet  Talk  Contribs  Directory 

You can store your welcome message as a template in your userspace (for example, User:JJBullet/Welcome) and then whenever a new user joins, you can just comment {{User:JJBullet/Welcome}}~~~~ to leave your message. However, it is not possible for you to make your message be included automatically on new users' talk pages without use of a bot (and we will not approve any such bots). You can see when new users join by looking at the user creation log though.

Bureaucrats

Hey There, recently i have been thinking about elections, and i was just wondering if you (the Bureaucrats and admins) can perform an election soon as i feel some wikians would benefit from an election many thanks,
Jjbullet.png JJBullet  Talk  Contribs  Directory 
13:51, 13 February 2019 (UTC)

Elections are not held periodically, but rather when the existing admins feel that more administrative help is needed. For now, we are doing fine with the amount of help we have, so there won't be any elections for the immediate future.

JJbullet, you don't have to add the colons, your signature is fine the way it is. Just put four tildes.

Insanity Error

I know you aren't developing this anymore, but there is an error showing up when I want to run a project I made in your Insanity mod. The block that is showing up red is: (join (num1::variables) [+] (num2::variables)[?]::reporter :: operators)
Could you please try to find out what the issue is and what I'm doing wrong? Thanks! (also why is my timestamp breaking lines)
Supermonkeycat157.png Supermonkeycat157  Talk  Contribs  On Scratch 02:47, 22 February 2019 (UTC)

Unfortunately I don't really have the time to develop Insanity anymore, and besides I don't remember much about Squeak.

Your bot messed up

Hello! I'd just like to let you know that your bot randomly said I didn't sign something, even though I did. I can give you a link, if you need it. Thanks!

In the future, if you receive an incorrect notification from WikiMonitor, please don't remove it, as I don't want to have to dig through the page history to figure out what you're talking about. Anyway, regarding that specific edit, the div tag you added shouldn't have beeen added to the page, and if you are making an edit to a talk page that is not a message, if you mark it as minor, WikiMonitor will ignore it.

Please add my header to a protected page

Hi. Could you please add my header back on to this page? Kenny2scratch protected it, but he removed my header. I can't edit the page anymore, so could you please do this for me? Thanks.

WikiMonitor

I like to use a custom signature that looks like VFDan.png VFDan  Talk  Contribs  On Scratch . However, WikiMonitor tells me to sign with ~~~~, even though I have a signature. What can I do about this?

VFDan.png VFDan  Talk  Contribs  On Scratch 

It looks for a timestamp.
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,489)) 19:52, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, you need a timestamp. You can set what appears when you enter ~~~~ by going to Preferences and entering {{User:VFDan/Sig}} as your signature (make sure you check the box that says "Treat signature as wikitext").

WM

Can you explain why I can't edit a lot on one page?
FrenchBread49 (talk | contribs) 03:29, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

Editing the same page multiple times clogs up the recent changes, which has to show one entry per edit. Instead of editing many times, use the "show preview" button! It's right next to the "save changes" button and it shows you what your edit will look like before you save. Once you're happy with how the edit looks, then you can save changes.

I figured that was it, but I wanted to get a legitimate answer. I will be sure to use the "show preview" button for now on.
