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.

Can you look at this please?

Can you please look at this?

Bot mentioned rule breaking content

Over [[1]], your bot mentioned an article with a title not ok for scratch. I'm letting you know. I didn't remove it because it's not something that will scar people for life, it's just not okay to name browser extensions on Scratch.
Han614698 H Logo.png han614698 talkcontribsprofile 21:56, 6 September 2022 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. I removed the title. I am not going to censor the revision however since I don't think it's a major enough policy/guideline violation to warrant that.

Invitation to help out

I'm wondering if you could help continue the conversation at User_talk:CookiesAreSoooYummy#Your_Signature since I think that you have a lot of expertize on this subject.

The captcha isn’t working

Sorry to contact you about this. It's not exactly related to the wiki. But I need your help. My school iPad blocks just about everything. I tried signing into one of my alts, and I accidentally misspelled my long password multiple times. I got onto the captcha page, but it's not loading! (Sorry if this image is kind of big. I don't have a compression site.) SliverusNoCaptcha.jpeg It says to enter the test below, but there is no text below because it's not loading on my iPad. I tried waiting it out, and nothing's happening. What do I do?
UserIconSSB20.jpeg Super_Scratch_Bros20 (talk / contribs) 16:25, 30 September 2022 (UTC)

I really have no idea unfortunately. I have never had this happen to me. Since you mention the iPad blocks a lot of stuff, it's possible that the site hosting the captcha is blocked, but this is only speculation.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 16:53, 30 September 2022 (UTC)
Okay, thanks anyway. I'm going to just wait and see if the captcha expires at some point.

I undid your revision

I undid your revision that removed "multiple consectutive "o"s" because accounts like "adhdjfnoooooooooo" are not taken AND not allowed.
Han614698 H Logo.png han614698 talkcontribsprofile 20:35, 5 October 2022 (UTC)

Oh, interesting. I wonder what the reasoning for that is. Maybe it's for testing or something.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 21:22, 5 October 2022 (UTC)


What do you think about this? User:ThisIsAnAccount#Contact_the_owner There's a google form link which collects my email if I go to fill it out. That's not allowed anymore, is it?
Han614698 H Logo.png han614698 talkcontribsprofile 11:47, 21 October 2022 (UTC)

I think that was created before the ST specifically banned Google Forms. The bot owner is inactive these days so I'll remove it; anyone that really needs to contact them can use their talk page or Scratch profile.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 20:43, 21 October 2022 (UTC)


That text you relobed from aoembodies sandbox wasn't personal info. It's a well known name from an internet prank.
Han614698 H Logo.png han614698 talkcontribsprofile 21:19, 22 October 2022 (UTC)

My understanding is the general rule the ST uses is personal info shouldn't be shared, even if it's fake as a joke.

i have a question about the scratch test wiki.
SpaghettiAG852097- (talk | contribs) 23:59, 29 October 2022 (UTC)
What is the question?
jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:35, 31 October 2022 (UTC)
So, i was looking at the test wiki (its a little hard to explain since its in a different language) and in the "translate-about" section theres the language tamil (தமிழ்) which is the language i speak so i just wanted to look at it so i clicked it. But when i click "தமிழ்" instead of bringing up the tamil wiki or something its bringing up chinese for some reason. Just wanted to let you know.
SpaghettiAG852097- (talk | contribs) 23:06, 1 November 2022 (UTC)
Hello, I've noticed that there's a small mistake in the template. The issue should be fixed as of now. (If not, refresh the page with CTRL+F5)
Also, feel free to request an account on the Test Wiki! It's definitely great to see more people and more languages thriving on it!

9 o username

i saw on the create account page that it said you couldnt create an account with more than 9 o's. Just wanted to ask why.

edit: I KEEP FORGETING TO SIGN MY SIGNATURE AND IT WONT LET ME ADD IT COS I HAVE TO WAIT 18O SECONDS now i'm gonna get another alert from WikiMonitor i already have 6 T^T
SpaghettiAG852097- (talk | contribs) 01:24, 4 November 2022 (UTC)

I don't know the reasoning, but I empirically tested this against the username validation endpoint and was able to confirm.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 17:36, 4 November 2022 (UTC)
Ok. i's just weird that you cant create a username with 9 o's. It could just be a bug or something. i tried creating an account with the word "pizza" like a month ago and it said "username not allowed" so i put it on the disscussion fourms and they said it was a bug and they fixed it and now you can create one with "pizza" in it

Can we turn off bots for Scratch Wiki:April Fools/Scratch Wiki talk:Community Portal?

Since you don’t have to sign your messages there, why can’t we just turn bots off? I got a notification for not signing there…

The Scratch Team unshared it. I believe this was a mistake (most likely a Scratch Team member misinterpreted the purpose of the project), but I am going to reach out to them to get this resolved.

Hi, I saw on your userpage you gave a link to your Flikr. I don't think giving social media profiles and stuff is allowed by the community guildlines (I may be wrong). I mean, it is your userpage but i just wanted to let you know.
SpaghettiAG852097- (talk | contribs) 17:03, 18 December 2022 (UTC)

I think Flickr is ok since it's more intended as a portfolio than a social media site.

Dear Jvvg,

I am wondering if you can give me the wikitext for the navigation bar, which I would love to implement in my wiki page
Scratch_hellopizza (talk | contribs) 04:16, 23 January 2023 (UTC)

If you mean the navbar at the top ("Create", "Explore", ...) that's not wikitext, that's defined in code, available here. If you mean the "Navigation" section to the left, we render it here but the actual contents are defined in interface text. For example, the "Current Events" text and the "Current Events" link target.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 04:30, 23 January 2023 (UTC)
I mean the one on your userpage
Scratch_hellopizza (talk | contribs) 23:28, 23 January 2023 (UTC)
I think they mean your header
SpaghettiAG852097- Logo.jpeg SpaghettiAG852097- talkcontribsprofile 00:03, 24 January 2023 (UTC)
It's available here: User:Jvvg/Header.

thank you very much, that was what I was looking for
Scratch_hellopizza (talk | contribs) 23:00, 24 January 2023 (UTC)

Thank You

Dear jvvg, Thank you for your wonderful welcome to the wiki!
Additionally, I have a few questions:
is the scratch wiki open source?
does the scratch wiki use php? Sincerely,
Scratch_hellopizza (talk | contribs) 00:28, 29 January 2023 (UTC)

Yes, the Scratch Wiki is open source. It's powered by MediaWiki and runs on a number of extensions listed here. You can see all the ones purpose-built for the Scratch Wiki at our GitHub organization. Both MediaWiki itself and all of our extensions are built in PHP.

Hello Jvvg, I saw an inappropriate edit so I edited it, but I wanted to let you know just in case the revison needed to be deleted. Thanks,

Hello Jvvg!

I was editing the wiki, when I noticed that WikiMonitor has not cleared the sandbox yet. It has been 18 hours and WikiMonitor has not cleared the sandbox. It usually clears every 4 hours. Thanks
SpaghettiAG852097- Logo.jpeg SpaghettiAG852097- talkcontribsprofile 02:20, 12 February 2023 (UTC)

Also, the edit that the user made in the sandbox was made on Visual Editor so it could maybe be a problem with the upgrade and visual editor because before the upgrade it worked fine.
SpaghettiAG852097- Logo.jpeg SpaghettiAG852097- talkcontribsprofile 02:22, 12 February 2023 (UTC)
Note: Just because the edit summaries say (Tag: Visual Edit) does not mean they were made with VE.
Han614698 H Logo.png han614698 talkcontribsprofile 03:24, 12 February 2023 (UTC)
Then what does it mean? I thought it meant it was made with VE
SpaghettiAG852097- Logo.jpeg SpaghettiAG852097- talkcontribsprofile 03:50, 12 February 2023 (UTC)
It means that it was made with Visual Editor unless it says "(Tag: Visual Edit: Switched). If it says switched then it means that it was source editor
SpaghettiAG852097- Logo.jpeg SpaghettiAG852097- talkcontribsprofile 03:53, 12 February 2023 (UTC)
Its not only a problem with clearing sandbox, WikiMonitor is COMPLETELY not working! I made a test unsigned post and I got no alert. But the user:WikiMonitor/Disable is still true.
SpaghettiAG852097- Logo.jpeg SpaghettiAG852097- talkcontribsprofile 03:30, 13 February 2023 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Believe it or not, WikiMonitor functioned exactly as intended when it didn't notify you for the unsigned post. I checked the logs and it registered the unsigned post, but it gives you three minutes to add a signature in case you realize you forgot right after saving, and it looks like you did add a signature within three minutes.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 03:57, 13 February 2023 (UTC)

Oh, thats nice that it gives you time to add your signature! But it did not clear the sandbox yet and it has been 2 whole days
SpaghettiAG852097- Logo.jpeg SpaghettiAG852097- talkcontribsprofile 14:21, 13 February 2023 (UTC)
Weirdly enough I see the log entries for making the edit but it's not going through. Most likely the version upgrade obsoleted the APIs it needed. I'll have to look into that.

Please remember to sign your posts

Hello, I'm WikiMonitor, a bot that patrols the Recent Changes. This is just a friendly reminder that it appears you forgot to sign your post in revision 321741 of User talk:Jvvg/sandbox. Please fix this by adding four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your post to insert your signature and remember to sign your posts in the future. Signing your posts is important as it allows other Wikians to see who made a post. Thanks!

If you have any questions about this, please check out the FAQs.

Note: if you were making an edit to a talk page that wasn't actually a message, in the future you can mark it as minor to avoid a notification.

This message was sent by an automated bot run by jvvg. You can contact him on his talk page with any concerns.

Hello, Jvvg. So I was just minding my own buisness, like any other Scratch Wikian, when WikiMonitor came along and told me I forgot to sign my post on Scratch Wiki talk:April Fools/Scratch Wiki Home.
I checked to see if I did, and sure enough, I did!

Can you explain why it notified me?

User:WikiMonitor/Disable - why protected??

Why is the page protected to Wikians and above, even though New Wikians can't edit userpages? Was {{open userpage}} on the page at some point?
2tables.png 2tables TalkContibutionsScratchEdits (789) 16:29, 11 May 2023 (UTC)

The page was protected prior to the existence of the restriction on New Wikians being able to edit userpages. At this point the protection is purely symbolic, but gives yet another warning message when attempting to edit it, and is another safeguard in case there is a bug in the userspace restriction.

Very late welcome

I found a topic where a user invited someone to Scratch Wiki with the Welcome template over half a year after the user joined. Should it be removed, or is it honestly not that big of a deal?
UserIconSSB20.jpeg Super_Scratch_Bros20 (talk / contribs) 04:53, 14 May 2023 (UTC)

It's not a big deal, just leave it be.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 20:19, 14 May 2023 (UTC)

wikimonitor warning template?

Should we make template WikiMonitor warnings instead of just importing the source code? For example:

  • {{User:WikiMonitor/Warnings/Unsigned}} for unsigned posts
  • {{User:WikiMonitor/Warnings/Uncategorized}} for new pages that are uncategorized

2tables.png 2tables TalkContibutionsScratchEdits (789) 20:37, 17 May 2023 (UTC)

There is minimal benefit to doing this, and it means that if we ever change the template all previous messages will suddenly change.

Is my signature okay?

Is my signature okay? I know it uses a border, but i've seen many others like mine.
2tables.png 2tables TalkContibutionsScratchEdits (789) 12:53, 20 May 2023 (UTC)

Per the custom signature rules, "[your] signature may not contain any background colors, other images, or borders." I think maybe we can relax the rule a bit, but as the rule currently stands you are out of compliance.
