Welcome to my talk page!

Feel free to leave me a message! It can be for anything - about an edit I made, about a community issue, asking me a question, or even just saying hello.

Please keep these in mind
  • If I left a message on your talk page, it does not matter to me whether you respond on your talk page or here.
  • Unless you ask me otherwise, if you leave me a message, I will respond here
  • The Community Guidelines and Scratch Wiki Guidelines still apply here - please follow them.
  • If you leave a disrespectful message, I will remove it without providing a response.
  • I am an administrator; therefore I can delete pages, protect pages, restore deleted pages, and edit protected pages
  • I know my userpage looks mundane. I like it that way.


Quick question. How many colleges have you gotten in to? And just so you know I replied here.

I got into all of two colleges.

I just noticed that someone made an archive and they haven't requested it to be protected. http://wiki.scratch.mit.edu/wiki/User_talk:Legobob23o/Archive_1

I don't protect archives unless users ask me to, as they may want to change the styling on it or something like that in the future.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 14:57, 29 March 2016 (UTC)
Ah. I didn't realize.

It's sad that you had to delete my page on Doxing, but no matter. I'm just glad that my information was useful in some way. Thanks!
MinecraftJCN (talk | contribs) 16:13, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

Something...coming soon. IF YOU ARE NOT JVVG, DO NOT READ THIS!


no thanks. not at all!!!

I know I can do the second and think I can do the first, but doing the third would be difficult since that would require about 1K edits and there's no template I could abuse. However, I could still nominate a few important pages (like the home page, Scratch, etc.) to be deleted.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 18:51, 31 March 2016 (UTC)
Wonderful! I'm excited for tomorrow!
AghaCool (talk | contribs) 20:06, 31 March 2016 (UTC)
Should we release this now? The Scratch Website has already done something for *you know what*.
AghaCool (talk | contribs) 20:26, 31 March 2016 (UTC)


Could you possible give me the code that you put on the front page? I would like to save it for the April Fools Hall of Fame (which I'm going to be creating) Thank you!
AghaCool (talk | contribs) 14:55, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

Also would you like to judge the April Fools Contest for The Wiki Times? Check out my message on the community portal for more info.
AghaCool (talk | contribs) 15:10, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
You can see the code at User:Jvvg/AF/Scratch Wiki Home. I don't think I want to be a judge, but thanks for the offer.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:47, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
by the way, I forgot to ask you a question before I accepted you into The Wiki Times. Here it is: Which day(s) will you be able to help the Wiki Times?
AghaCool (talk | contribs) 14:24, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
I don't know which days specifically. It's whatever days I'm around.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 14:27, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
ok, thanks!
AghaCool (talk | contribs) 14:30, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

Ignore this post. It's dealt with now.

Hi jvvg! I can't really think of anything that I could do to expand the ScratchX page so I guess I'd just edit some other random pages, if that's OK with you.--
IgDegOo (talk | contribs) 14:42, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

Hey there! He's not going to ban you just because you can find things to edit! Don't worry about finding things at first! Don't feel pressured! Edit page at your own pace. :) Scratch on!
AghaCool (talk | contribs) 14:45, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
We only ban people for bad behavior. Don't worry. Anyway, if you are looking for things to edit, check out Category:Article Stubs or Category:Articles to Expand.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 14:52, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
OK! Let's stop the discussion now. Oh, and thanks for welcoming me to the wiki :)
IgDegOo (talk | contribs) 15:39, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

A question and a head's up.

  1. How do you make your own page in your userspace?
  2. The Wiki Logo and the {{NotUseful}} template still use the AF version:

DocumentInQuestion.png This page or section is in question as to whether it is useful or not. You can discuss whether you want it deleted or not on its talk page.

IgDegOo (talk | contribs) 18:08, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

1. Just go to User:IgDegOo/Sandbox (replace sandbox with whatever you want it to be) and create the page. 2. I fixed the logo, but the template looks like it's already been fixed. Thanks for letting me know.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 01:25, 3 April 2016 (UTC)


Just saying, wikimonitor is annoying!!
JonathanSchaffer (talk | contribs) 21:05, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

Hey there! It may be annoying at times, but it is a helpful reminder especially for new users on the Scratch Wiki. And it is not a spambot. It is intended to help other users remember what to do.
AghaCool (talk | contribs) 21:09, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

why will this not work

I tried categorising File:IgDegOo.png, but it wouldn't work. ;n;
IgDegOo (talk | contribs) 11:54, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

It's OK, I got it working.
IgDegOo (talk | contribs) 15:52, 3 April 2016 (UTC)


Hi there - are you allowed to copy the contents of your userpage, make a page (like User:Banana439monkey/page) and just put the template of it?

Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (My talk page | Contributions | Scratch) 12:54, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

If you mean make a mainspace page that has the contents of a userpage, we would prefer it if you copied it rather than transcluding, so that the actual contents are all stored in the mainspace.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 13:28, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
Ah. Anyway. Why aren't the profile pictures showing up? The wiki just looks weird.
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (My talk page | Contributions | Scratch) 08:33, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
EDIT: Only the ones in the custom signatures are showing.

banana439monkey (talk | contribs)
EDIT 2: It also only works in the vector skin, which I prefer.
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (My talk page | Contributions | Scratch) 09:10, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I made an announcement on the CP about this. Please read it for more information.

Hey jvvg. Could I run WM in my browser, but with a few minor changes?

Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (My talk page | Contributions | Scratch) 07:49, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

Also, can you delete http://wiki.scratch.mit.edu/wiki/User_talk:Banana439monkey/February_2016/Nominations#Test for me please. I accidentally made it.
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (My talk page | Contributions | Scratch) 08:09, 9 April 2016 (UTC)
I deleted your page, but WM isn't really a thing you run in your browser. It's a PHP script you run from the command line. You can find the source code here, but please don't run it on the Wiki, as that could cause some major conflicts.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 13:40, 9 April 2016 (UTC)
Oh, right.
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (My talk page | Contributions | Scratch) 18:02, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

The Wiki Times!

Hey there! Can you add that the next issue (issue 2 1/2) has come out and sign your name? I need to finish it up and then I have to leave, so can you add it whenever you get online? Thank you! You can add it here. The current issue (issue 2 1/2) can be found here.
AghaCool (talk | contribs) 13:55, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

"If you somehow show up where I live and identify yourself as a Wiki contributor, I will bake you cookies"


Also, I fixed a glitch on my userpage. It was a button that asked people to make a page instead of commenting on my page. I eventually had to take a picture of it and upload the image. :P

Scratch Wiki "Alert"?

Hey! My name is Abbot, and yesterday I joined the Wiki. By clicking on my name, I found that I could edit my own Wikipedia page. I edited it...and wrote a lot. Today, I found that I had a new message from you (an automated bot) saying: "It appears you have made a large amount of edits (8 in the last hour) in quick succession to the page User:Abbotcostello recently. Please use the "Show preview" button before submitting edits to prevent this in the future." It was to my own user page, so certainly this is okay, but can you please assure me that this "alert" isn't anything big? Can a person get banned from the wiki, like Scratch, if they get too many of these "alerts"? Also, I feel like I'm commenting in the wrong way~please show me the correct way. Thanks! (also, I know that this may not be a real comment, but I hope you see it!!)

Those are just automatic reminders of good Wiki behavior, they do not relate to bans. Only admins will foretell bans.
Also, please sign next time, with ~~~~

Yeah, this is just a note informing you that you should try to avoid it, and it's sent automatically. You won't be banned for that.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 00:55, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

Aha! Thanks~

Abbotcostello (talk | contribs) 22:52, 12 April 2016 (UTC)


What if someone declines to not use their custom sig after they've been reminded twice? Do they get a ban?

Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (My talk page | Contributions | Scratch) 16:15, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

People are generally only banned for refusing to cooperate with other users, but usually after receiving several warnings first. If there is an incident occurring, please let me (or any other EW/admin) know so we can deal with it.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 19:06, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
Ah, Okay. I just saw a page about custom sigs (the one you gave me) and had a question. xD
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (My talk page | Contributions | Scratch) 07:14, 14 April 2016 (UTC)


For the signature message on WM, may I add "adding your signature is vital for other wikians to know who posted the message" to its config page? Please notify me on my talk page. :)

Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (My talk page | Contributions | Scratch) 14:50, 17 April 2016 (UTC)


How did you do that cool little box and the talking mouse? I'm fixing my user page and I'd want to add them!
Programmer1121 (talk | contribs) 01:21, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

1. Jvvg makes User:Jvvg/Header and User:Jvvg/Status 2. He uses the noinclude tag. You can use them, but be sure to give him credit. :)
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (My talk page | Contributions | Scratch) 07:10, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

Just wondering

Is it ok if I replace JS's comment on here with [removed]? I think it's an exception to the "don't edit userpages" rule.
IgDegOo (talk | contribs) 15:17, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

I'll remove it. Thanks for alerting me.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:41, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

Once again, please notify me on my talk page...

Hiya! Can I use the SW authentication system? If so, is there a link to the source code? If so, can you give it to me?

Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (My talk page | Contributions | Scratch) 17:13, 19 April 2016 (UTC)


What does the /br tag do?

Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (My talk page | Contributions | Scratch) 17:13, 23 April 2016 (UTC)

If you mean <br />, that inserts a line break. The difference between that and hitting enter twice is that it isn't treated as a new paragraph.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 19:08, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
Ah. I've got you now.
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (My talk page | Contributions | Scratch) 19:26, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

Wait, what happened?

My banned notice was deleted and I discovered some EW posted a message on my talk page.
PPL Icon.gif ♥PrincessPandaLover Talk | Contributions | Scratch Account 01:56, 26 April 2016 (UTC)

Whoops, that was my bad. Well, I didn't delete the banned notice, but I did make the post on your page. Sorry jvvg.
