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
  • If I made a mistake (of any kind) or WikiMonitor malfunctioned, please try to post your concerns calmly and provide relevant details.
  • Please treat me as you want me to treat you and think about what you post before posting it.
  • I will answer questions not related to the Wiki as long as they're not too personal.

add pamimus?

Hi jvvg. I posted this in the discussion for Scratch Team here. Basically, ceebee confirmed that pamimus was an ST member. Should we add them to the list then?

Hello, Jacob! I noticed that User:Mathfreak231/Old, may not meet the Scratch Wiki:Guidelines or the Community Guidelines. Please review User:Mathfreak231/Old.

That page is a userpage so it isn't subject to the regular Wiki guidelines about notability or writing quality or similar. I don't see anything on the page at first glance that obviously violates any of the relevant portions of the Wiki guidelines (for userpages, that mainly means following the Community Guidelines), so please let me know what specifically. If it's something that's inappropriate or you otherwise don't want to mention publicly, you can report the most recent revision and it will be handled privately, similar to reporting content on the Scratch website.

If you promote me to an Administrator, I can replace the content that violates the Community Guidelines with asterisks (*), like the censor on the Discussion Forums.
CodeLearnerSai (talk | contribs) 03:15, 25 July 2021 (UTC)
We have a specific process for determining Experienced Wikians, administrators, etc. and will not promote someone just for a one-time thing like this. If you believe any part is inappropriate or otherwise violates the Scratch Community Guidelines, please submit a report. Reports are private and will only be seen by Wiki administration so you don't have to worry about anything being made public with a report.

Hello! I was contacted by one of your bots, and it said that I had made too many edits to one particular page [[1]] but this was because I was practicing and the page had advised me to do so and I had never heard of this rule. Should I be worried?
ILikeProggraming123 (talk | contribs) 13:02, 23 June 2021 (UTC)

There's nothing to be worried about, it's just a friendly reminder (it's not like an alert). When you make a lot of edits to any page, it clogs up the recent changes, and a lot of us do monitor that to see what's going on. If possible, please use "Show Preview" if you need to test something out to avoid this problem.

Can I create special pages if I'm not an Admin?

Hey, I want to know if regular Wikians (not Admins) can make special pages. Thanks!
PizzaPizza72 (talk | contribs) 20:00, 24 June 2021 (UTC)

Special pages aren't like regular content pages, you can't actually edit them through the Wiki editor. A special page operates some custom code built behind the scenes, and many are built into MediaWiki, though some are added through custom extensions purpose-built for the Scratch Wiki by our engineering team (example: Special:RequestAccount - from the Scratch Account Request System extension) or were provided by others (example: Special:CategoryTree from the CategoryTree extension). To add a new one, you need to build an extension that provides the appropriate functionality and then someone with server access needs to install it.

But what if I'm not signed into a Chrome/Firefox account?
PizzaPizza72 (talk | contribs) 14:44, 5 July 2021 (UTC)
Having a Chrome/Firefox account has nothing to do with it. These aren't browser extensions, these are MediaWiki extensions (and thus also are not subject to the Extension Policy).

Please compress files you upload

Why did a bot tell me to not make edits in short time, even though I edited in the Sandbox?

So... I want to tell you that a bot told me to not make edits in a short amount of time, but it was the sandbox. Why? It was the sandbox, and that is for practicing editing skills. Please don't ignore this!
PizzaPizza72 (talk | contribs) 15:09, 1 July 2021 (UTC)

Sandbox edits still show up in recent changes, and you should use "show preview" as much as possible to avoid bloating recent changes and page edit histories, even if it's a sandbox.

Protect this image again before a new one is uploaded

Hi, you seemed to protect the image (link before a new one was uploaded, but you seemed to unprotect it. Please protect it again!
PizzaPizza72 (talk | contribs) 16:13, 1 July 2021 (UTC)

The protection was because of edit warring. However, the edit warring conflict had been resolved. The most recent upload was an automated compression of the image you uploaded. You are expected to compress images before you upload using a tool such as TinyPNG to improve performance and save space. If you do not compress images, then they will be automatically compressed by TemplatesFTW (and in fact, if you look at the recent notifications on my talk page I have gotten a few of those myself) accompanied by a reminder that you should compress them yourself.

But I don't want Kenny2scratch to change it again! And, haha, even admins miss compressions!

Maybe a page could be made listing all of the series on Scratch.
BookTV (talk | contribs) 20:41, 1 July 2021 (UTC)

If you mean series like projects in a series, that would violate our policy against articles about Scratchers and policies and also would be an insanely long article with thousands of entries.

Your Bot is thinking I didn't put a signature but I did on Talk:How to Make a Three-Dimensional Project

when you read this::events hat
if <(username)=[Jvvg]> then
say [Basically, I wrote <scratchsig>PenguinLover1123</scratchsig> instead of ~~~~ (which show the same thing but <scratchsig>PenguinLover1123</scratchsig> doesn't have the timestamp) on Talk:How to Make a Three-Dimensional Project.] for (5) seconds
say [I am using scratchblocks because in scratchblocks normal (like <big></big>) formatting can't happen.] for (2) seconds
ask [Please, can you fix your bot, WikiMonitor?] and wait

-unsigned comment by PenguinLover1123 (talk | contribs)

This is not a bug in WikiMonitor. You need to include a timestamp in your signature so people know when you made a post, not just who made it. The four tildes (~~~~) both include the scratchsig as well as the timestamp.

Just thought I'd say hi ;)

Thanks for the welcome message

Thank you for the welcome message. I read those guides, and they were all very helpful! I'm so sorry for editing this, but I forgot the signature thing completely.
Queer_Royalty (talk | contribs)

Welcome to the Wiki! I look forward to seeing what you contribute.

Your blog is cool!

I just wanted to say that your blog on your site is cool.

One of the links in your header returns an error

The link to in your header (under "My Software") returns a Not Found error for me. Is the link going to stay in your header?
Jammum Icon.png Jammum (💬 Talk - ✍️ Contribs - 🐱 Scratch) 16:07, 23 July 2021 (UTC)

It works if you remove the www. I should really fix that on the server (I don't really maintain the site anymore since I now have an actual job and thus most of my coding is for that), but in the meantime I'll update my header.

Typo on WikiMonitor Page

I just saw that there was a typo on User:WikiMonitor/Common Concerns were there was a missing end parenthesis in the section that talks about signatures.
Dhuls's Wiki Icon.png Dhuls (Talk|536 Contributions|Scratch) 20:11, 31 July 2021 (UTC)

I don't see any missing closing parentheses? Could you please provide the exact quote where it appears?
jvvg (talk | contribs) 20:21, 31 July 2021 (UTC)
Never mind, I see you fixed it.
