Hello!

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.

Hiya!

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

Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (My talk page | Contributions | Scratch) 14:53, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

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.

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.

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.--

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.

Hi

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.

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.

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!!)

Question:

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.

Question:

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)

Experienced Wikians and Admins

Hi jvvg, Firstly I am sorry if I did something wrong trying to talk to you (e.g If I am suppose to do this differently). Anyways I was wondering how you the wiki elects its Experienced Wikians and Admins. I am not asking you to make me a EW or an Admin (I am way to experienced with the scratch wiki and its code, etc). That is all though, just wondering how you elect them.
Spencealot (talk | contribs) 01:27, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

An EW is elected in an EW election when deemed necessary. For an admin to be elected, they need to be lucky — A user has to already be an EW and then they're appointed. Btw, the results are held on the futuresight website and not ModShare
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,321)) 07:05, 13 May 2016 (UTC)
But like what requirements are there for an EW and can you apply or something?

Spencealot (talk | contribs) 15:49, 13 May 2016 (UTC)
I don't specifically know...
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,321)) 16:02, 13 May 2016 (UTC)
We hold elections to become EWs whenever we feel it is necessary (generally around once a year, but sometimes a little less frequently). To run in the election, you just have to nominate yourself and meet some fairly basic requirements (last election, it was being 1+ months old and having 50+ mainspace edits). However, if more than 5 or 6 people nominate themselves, the existing EWs and admins will pick who they see to be the best 5 or 6 candidates to run. After that, the community will vote and the top one or two will be chosen. To become an administrator, you already need to be an active EW at the time of an election or occasionally they are appointed for other reasons, but that is fairly rare.

2. Just wondering, how did you become a wiki adminastrator?

Thanks, EternallyGreen
-unsigned comment by Eternallygreen (talk | contribs)

1. Please do not blockspam - the plugin's there for a reason 2. You need to firstly be an active EW and they are elected by the community and stuff. To be an EW, you need to nominate yourself when the EW election is here.
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,321)) 07:06, 17 May 2016 (UTC)
Also, if you're using the plugin, 1. it's outdated and 2. you need an ending scratchblocks tag
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,321)) 07:06, 17 May 2016 (UTC)
@EternallyGreen: You need to run in the EW elections to become an "Experienced Wikian" (EW), and each election we appoint one or two active EWs to administrator. (Also, you're welcome :).) @banana439monkey: Please be more respectful of other users and do not remove content from their messages. Not all users are familiar with the rules of the Wiki when they join, and it takes a little while to learn them. Please don't be so harsh when talking to new users (or any users, for that matter).
jvvg (talk | contribs) 13:16, 17 May 2016 (UTC)
I didn't remove any content. Someone else did. All I did was add a </scratchblocks> tag to the end of the post to stop WM from saying I didn't sign my posts.
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,321)) 15:26, 17 May 2016 (UTC)
Aha. I just looked through the history of this page and saw User:Eternallygreen removed it. It wasn't me. I don't want to be harsh, but when you see someone remove something from someone else's message, check the page history to see who edited the message and if the person who made the message made the edit, don't remind them since I'm sure THAT's okay. Never jump to conclusions. ;)

WM

I was just notified by WM for the same reason as before. Could you explain this to me?
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,321)) 17:55, 18 May 2016 (UTC)

Btw, speaking of bots, should the bot I suggested just run in my userspace?
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,321)) 18:04, 18 May 2016 (UTC)
WM has had some issues lately, so I had to restart it. Since you removed the notification, WM looks at the page history, but only looks at the few most recent edits, so occasionally if I have to restart WM people get notified multiple times about the same thing. WM is working properly now, so hopefully this won't happen again. As for your bot, you can clear your own sandbox whenever you want (and that doesn't really need a bot), but clearing other peoples' sandboxes is still a violation of userspace.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 18:52, 18 May 2016 (UTC)
Ah. I just made an archive, then WM just did that a few days after uploading the image. Oh, wait. I forgot it was the 19th. Yes, I have a bad memory. xD It's probably because I'm busy.

Creating pages under other peoples' userspace is (for all intents and purposes) the same as editing a page under their userspace, so yes it is forbidden.

Am I allowed to completely change this?

Hello, I have a question. The April Fools page on CS is filled with Kerbal jokes which have absolutely *nothing* to do with CS, and it is basically used as a way to oppose Sonic (which I don't want on the Wiki either). At least the Sonic jokes are somewhat relevant to the subject, but the Kerbal jokes here do not pertain to CS in any way. I have added some jokes about CS. I feel a little miffed that the CS joke page is being used as a pawn in a long-term edit war, because I am interested in the subject. I have brought up the issue on the talk page, with no reponses. Since the jokes are totally offtopic from the subject, may I delete all the Kerbal content and rewrite the page so that it relates to CS? Thank you for your time.

  • If you somehow show up where I live and identify yourself as a Wiki contributor, I will bake you cookies - could I change "an" to "and"?

Scratch Blocks and Scratch 3.0 look like reasonably different topics (they are both related, but at least from the information I have, they seem different since Scratch Blocks is a libray), so I guess they should be separate articles. Pardon my ignorance, but what is the Scratch VM?

jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:24, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

Thank you so much for the resolution.

I agree with everything that you have said. I have interpreted this as "accepting tolerance, and the diversity and variety of ideas, but trying to monopolize everything with one idea doesn't do anyone favors, and allowing content to be used in such a way that invites humor and fun for everyone, and not just for the people who are editing/posting/whatever".

I feel that with this solution, I am satisfied. Embracing multiple ideas keeps one from being too powerful and monopolizing. This was exactly my problem, and you have solved it. Thank you!

I also want to talk to PPL and see if we can get a similar kind of agreement on the TBGs, and so that everyone there can be satisfied as well, and avoiding every other post being Sonic. I feel that with this simple idea of embracing diversityand variety of ideas, our conflict has now come to a formal end. Thank you for this. You have just made all of our lives better. Again, thank you!

As for the TBGs, those are beyond my control, but I hope you can have a peaceful resolution there too.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 02:01, 16 June 2016 (UTC)
Thank you. I have tried talking to PPL directly about the resolution and seeing if it can be applied to the TBGs. That would be the easiest thing to do. As such, I hope that she accepts my idea for the TBGs and as such, the entire place won't periodically burst out into flame wars and complaining. Life there has been hard for all users.

The comment on your userpage

I'm honored that you gave me exclusive editing privileges of your userpage, but you may want to re-read the comment that you put on your userpage telling other people not to edit it. (Seeing that actually made my day. :) ).
jvvg (talk | contribs) 17:32, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

Haha, about that.. I actually looked at your user talk and thought that it looked really good, so I decided to see how you did it. I added a section like yours reminding people about editing the user page, but I'm in W.I.P. of it now. The new version doesn't actually say that. Sorry if I let you down. xD. I can give you exclusive editing privileges if you want? :P --

Lol yeah. I just copy and pasted it so I could figure out what you did to make it only appear in the editor. --

Hi

Hey there - Not to start a flame war, but st19_galla says you're updating the skin, when I thought I was. Are you actually?
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,321)) 15:57, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

I will start working on an updated version once the skin is put on all pages on the main site.

Should we even collaborate on it? You could work on the programming while I make and upload new images
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,321))
Let's work on that once it actually makes it to the rest of the site, as there is a decent chance some stuff will change before then, and there's no guarantee it's going to happen any time soon.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 19:48, 25 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi there jvvg! I am currently stuck on what articles to edit. Can you give me any suggestions on articles to edit and what they need? Thanks, --

Reading through what I said, my interpretation would be yes. Leaving the link doesn't go against anything I said.

Thank you for clarifying. With everything thats been happening thier, I've just started assuming people have been adding/removing sonic content to prove a point. I should have assumed good faith, as you said. Thank you again!

Actually, talk pages don't need to be categorized. It was just the image. Mainspace pages (i.e. articles) and images are the things that need to be categorized, but user and talk pages don't. ;)

Also above I managed to make your signature very easily should you make it so only the user can - I cut out the g so it wasn't real
example (talk | contribs) 08:46, 28 July 2016 (UTC) made this as well

Yes, I am aware of that page, and we aren't hiding it for technological reasons. Second, there isn't any way to restrict what content people are allowed to put on pages, but enough people look at edits that they will see if somebody falsifies a signature.

Why does everyone hate me?

PPL Icon.gif ♥PrincessPandaLover Talk | Contributions | Scratch Account 22:31, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

Nobody should "hate" anybody on the Wiki. If anybody is being disrespectful, please let me know and I will deal with the situation appropriately. Looking at your contribs record (at least recent ones), it doesn't look like anybody hates you at all. Most of your edits seem to be accepted, and I don't see any disrespectful behavior towards you (once again, this is just what I see, and I might be missing something). Remember that users on the Wiki are supposed to assume good faith, and this means that in the absence of obvious evidence to the contrary, users should assume that edits were made with good intentions. This means that anybody reverting any edits of yours (or anyone's) probably is not reverting them because they hate you or out of spite, but rather disagreement or thinking that the new content somehow doesn't fit perfectly. However, again, if you do see any instances of disrespect, please let me know and I will deal with them.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 00:17, 4 August 2016 (UTC)
Look, PPL. We all love you. We might have our rough moments here and there, and that is to be expected. Sometimes I feel like my mom doesn't like me. I get it. It's not a good experience, not by a long shot. Just don't forget that you are a welcome member of the Wiki, and you are a great person. I might be some internet person for all you know, but you volunteer works speaks for me. The fact that you do this, without prompt!, shows a lot. ;)
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 03:48, 4 August 2016 (UTC)
No one hates you. I have haters in real life. Scratch and here like everyone more than wikipedia and G+ and YT and et cetra. We're not like wikipedia and G+ and YT and et cetra. We don't hate anyone. Bear in mind we're a welcoming wiki - we welcome all sorts of scratchers, much like scratch welcomes all sorts of people

Hello! Im sorry to say, but for complicated reasons, can you please (a) delete this account or (b)disable/ban this account. Thank you, and sorry that Im leaving. If I do come back, I will ask for my wiki account back. One reason for deleting it is due to some people knowing my password, so I would like it if you could ban this account. BTW I will no longer be on here, so no need to reply.

The Report Screen

I don't know if I'll be able to change the picture soon because of the cache thing. I'll try to find a chance to do it soon. Is there a type of file that has higher quality that you can upload?
Ziggy741 (talk | contribs) 15:20, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

It's not an issue with the file type, it's just that it looks like you made the screenshot smaller than it was originally. However, that template also invites anybody else to upload a new version of the picture, so don't worry about it.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:25, 13 August 2016 (UTC)
I did make the screenshot smaller so it wouldn't take up too much space. (I don't know what happens if an image is too big.) If you have a picture of the report screen, you can upload another version. Also, sorry for not replying to your other comment, I don't know how.
Ziggy741 (talk | contribs) 15:30, 13 August 2016 (UTC)
We don't have any space issues and as long as you don't upload a massive image (i.e. much bigger than a typical computer screen), you shouldn't run into any problems. Also, you reply to a comment by editing the section of the discussion and putting your reply at the bottom of the section, indenting it with one more colon than the previous message (i.e. my first message was indented by one colon, I put your second message with two, and this one has three). See Help:Talk Page for more information.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:46, 13 August 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! Also, is it okay if I make the file smaller a little bit? I need to do that so I can copy the part of the image I want.
Ziggy741 (talk | contribs) 16:21, 13 August 2016 (UTC)
You can also copy the file offline. ;)

Would a HTML redirect be allowed instead of using #REDIRECT [[]]?
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,321)) 19:13, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

What do you mean "HTML redirect"? Are you referring to using meta tags or a JS redirect? Either way, I'm pretty sure you can't use them.
