Ziggy741, please try to be more polite when commenting. Your message is unnecessarily rude. Chibi-Matoran already made the appropriate point, and your message, as I read it, is basically just there to insult PPL for a pretty benign post.

Thanks

Thank you for telling me about the image thing. Also do you need to do the cache thing right away?
Ziggy741 (talk | contribs) 23:30, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

Yes, you need to take the necessary steps to clear your cache if you want the new image to display. Usually refreshing the file page will do the trick.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 01:50, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
So if you refresh the page you won't need to do the cache thing?
Ziggy741 (talk | contribs) 20:00, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
If you refresh the page and the new image shows, then you should be fine. However, if the new image doesn't show after refreshing, you do need to clear your cache.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 20:01, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
OK.

Even Worse

I was going to upload another version of the page that shows instead of a project you reported. I didn't make the file size smaller, and the quality was even worse. How do I make it so it won't be terrible quality?
Ziggy741 (talk | contribs) 15:17, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Take a screenshot of the page when the browser window is full sized.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 21:18, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
When I did the screenshot I was in full screen mode. I tried pasting the screenshot on GIMP and PaintTool SAI, but they seem to ruin the quality. I used Paint for the current one. (The simple program.) Also do you report projects? If you do, then maybe you could reupload a new version of the file.

Question

Why is the Los Angeles Metro one of your favorite subway systems?
Swampert11 (talk | contribs) 19:49, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

I like it because of the way that it is all a single interconnected design and the fact that the station designs are generally more elaborate than those on other systems.

I've got a question about the wiki!

How do you categorize new pages? I'm asking because there is no tutorial on how to categorize.

F1lip (talk | contribs) 11:30, 20 August 2016 (UTC)

Use [[Category:CATEGORY]] at the bottom of a page.

Out of interest...

Would the edit I made to Scratch_Wiki:News_Updating count as vandalism, or grammar fixing? Will it be reverted at all?
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,322)) 18:09, 21 August 2016 (UTC)

Grammar fixing is ok when you're not editing something that belongs to another user (i.e. another user's talk page message or a userpage). In this case, since the page wasn't protected, you were allowed to edit it.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 18:31, 21 August 2016 (UTC)

Let's see if I can do this still..

Man, it is nice to look back at scratch and the wiki and see that everything is still going well. It is nice to see that you are still here because without you I think the wiki would be seriously lost. I would like to congratulate you on being accepted to Case Western Reserve University!

Images

Is it possible to prevent users from uploading new versions of an image?
Ziggy741 (talk | contribs) 15:57, 28 August 2016 (UTC)

I don't think so, you probably just have to trust people enough to not change it.
Pianogirl84's Logo.png Pianogirl84 Talk Contributions 17:14, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
Admins can protect it, but that's it. Unless it's considered an image that shouldn't be changed (i.e. ST-maintained, for a featured article, etc.), then a user has the right to upload a new version if it's better.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 17:16, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
The image is not for a page in the Scratch Wiki, it's for use in the forums. I don't want someone to ruin the pictures I used.
Ziggy741 (talk | contribs) 17:43, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
The Wiki is not an image host. Images published on the Wiki should be intended for use on the Wiki. If you want to use it in a forum post, please upload it to a different host like cubeupload.com.

You are allowed to use pictures hosted on the Wiki in forum posts as long as they are also used on the Wiki. However, just keep in mind that the image may be moved without warning if circumstances require.

Bug

In the archive count, it suggests you have two half archives. After archive 10, they should all end in .5 (or ½)
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,322)) 11:14, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

That's not a bug. I just called it archive 10½ because it wasn't a normal archive and put the ½ at the end to put it between archives 10 and 11.

Currently it detects a "new message" as something at the end of a section. I will in the future make it ignore stuff before the first section header, but that may take a bit. In the meantime you can add {{NoBots}} if you need to make further edits.

Heya

Hey there. Could you teach me PHP please?
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,322)) 11:06, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

PHP is a pretty complicated language and it would take me a long time to teach it, and there isn't really any good channel for me to do so. However, w3schools has some decent tutorials that you could try using. You can also read some introductory material on the PHP website.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 12:54, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
Ah. Can't you teach in categories, like easy to hard?
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,322)) 17:08, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
In programming (as in everything), easy and hard is subjective. The way I learned PHP was by just jumping in and starting a project, learning relevant stuff as I needed. I'm currently doing the same thing right now learning the Android libraries for Java, and it's working pretty well. It feels like you're coding blind, but it's a good way to learn stuff, as you actually know the practical applications of what you're doing immediately. If I (or anyone else) were just to teach you concepts, you probably would not learn them as well because you would have to find ways to use them, which can be difficult. Practical knowledge is much more important than book knowledge, so I recommend learning by making a project.

Suggestion

Can you make your bot not send a message when you've over-edited a page because you couldn't use show preview because you were using {{DISPLAYTITLE}}? https://wiki.scratch.mit.edu/wiki/User_talk:Banana439monkey#Please_don.27t_make_several_edits_in_a_short_amount_of_time
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,322)) 17:32, 3 November 2016 (UTC)

I am not going to modify the code of WM for that special a case. This happens exceedingly rarely, and I don't want to set a precedent of coding in something for exceptions that aren't fairly common. If you know you are going to be messing with the display title and don't want to receive a notification, you can either use the Scratch Wiki sandbox (WM is set to ignore that page for making too many edits too quickly) or add {{NoBots}} to your talk page while you make the edits. Also, I just tested it out myself and found that the modified title does show when you hit "Show preview". However, the template is ignored if you change the text of the title (you can only change the formatting of the title with DISPLAYTITLE). See Wikipedia's documentation for more information.

Category... Help?

Hi @Jvvg! For my user page, I uploaded a few pictures. I read that you needed to use the code Category: User's Images in the Summary box. I had done that, and I had gotten messages from you saying that I didn't. I was wondering what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks! Christina
-unsigned comment by AllAboutTheFries (talk | contribs)

When you put a category on a page or file, you need to put it like a link (in double square brackets, so in this case [[Category:Users' Images]]). You didn't include the brackets, so the Wiki didn't detect it as a category. I went in and fixed the images for you. If you have any other questions, check out Help:Categories or ask me (or any other active user) for help. Welcome to the Wiki!

I got a false positive from your bot.

Your bot has placed a false positive even though I had signed the post. I'm sure that is from bad programming, but I want to know how to safely post a custom sig.

I did two signatures because if I only did my custom one it would do the same thing.

BF10 (talk | contribs) 22:54, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

This mistake is not, in fact, due to bad programming. You need to include the timestamp for WM to mark a post as signed. In order to include the timestamp in your posts, go to your preferences and set your sig as your custom sig and then sign with four tildes to insert the custom sig and timestamp.

wiki monitor

I made some pages and I did the unreleased template for the categories and WikiMonitor said I didn't categorize the pages.
Ziggy741 (talk | contribs) 01:02, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

The templates that WM recognizes as including categories are listed at User:WikiMonitor/Configuration/CategoryTemplates. I decided not to include {{Unreleased}} because that category does not completely describe the contents of the page and another category is necessary (in this case you should use Category:Sound Blocks).

Considering that "C block" shows up when I just type in a "C" in the search bar, I don't think it is really something to worry about. However, since you already put it back, I'm not going to delete it again.

How to Make The Contents Box

Wiki Monitor.

Wiki Monitor thinks that I made eighteen edits in the last hour when it gave me a message but not all of the edits I did were in the last hour. I think that it was supposed to say that I did six edits in the last hour.

I've seen that issue before. I think it looks at all edits made to that page in the recent changes list (not just those you made in the past half hour). As far as I can tell, the message is still triggered properly, though, so it's not a huge problem. I'll look into it later.

Couple of questions

Heya, Jvvg!

I had a couple of questions for you. One question is of tutorials to teach new editors the code used in the Wiki, and a Testing Page. Another is what is the actual code used in the Wiki. Lastly, I wanted to ask if there is a list of articles that need editing. I thank you for your time and effort on this Wiki.

Thanks, Customhacker


Customhacker (talk | contribs) 03:55, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

I don't quite understand your first question. What are you asking me about tutorials and testing pages? For your second question, the Wiki is running a standard installation of MediaWiki with a custom skin and a few extensions. See Special:Version for more information. The extensions specific to Scratch are ConfirmAccounts, ScratchWikiSkin, and mw-ScratchSig2. For your final question, we have a few lists. Check out Category:Article Stubs, Category:Articles to Expand, Category:Inaccurate Articles, and Category:Wiki Standards.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 14:58, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
By the first question Im looking for tutorials on coding on the wiki, and if there are areas we can test. Also, how do you create custom signatures?


Customhacker (talk | contribs) 23:06, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

For a basic tutorial on Wiki markup, see Help:Welcome. For a list of all the documentation we have, see Help:Contents. You can test at Scratch Wiki:Sandbox or create your own sandbox here. For info on creating a custom signature, see Scratch Wiki:Custom Signatures.

Template/Archiving/Table/Tutorials

Heya! I got more questions for you! So first off, I was wondering if it was acceptable for editors to create templates for public and/or personal use. Also, I was wondering how you would archive things on your talk page. After that, I am wondering how you would make tables such as the outside of

Are you talking about templates for your user page? If you are, then you can do a sub page of your user page. Also Help:Archiving a talk page.

Customhacker (talk | contribs) 17:37, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
Okay. So you can do a sub page of your user page for it.
Ziggy741 (talk | contribs) 17:49, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
To make something like the outside of the welcome template, take a look at Template:Welcome and mess with it until it looks like what you want. When you talk about making Wiki tutorials on the main site, do you mean creating a tutorial on how to use the Wiki or a tutorial like our how-to pages? If it's a tutorial on how to use the Wiki, we would prefer you keep it here (though we won't stop you if you make one on the main site), and if you mean something like our how-to pages, there are plenty of forum posts explaining how to do things, and that would be a good place for tutorials that might not necessarily fit on the Wiki.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 19:34, 15 January 2017 (UTC)
Also, how do you make a link to your userpage for the custom signature?
Customhacker (talk | contribs) 00:43, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
Just do a normal link. In your case, that would be [[User:Customhacker|Customhacker]].

isOnline

Would it be against the Wiki Guidelines to create a article about isOnline by World_Languages? (Sorry if I was not supposed to say the user's name!) All the guidelines say is "Topics that have been considered important/notable enough in Scratch's history by a majority of wiki editors that they deserve an article. (ex. Kaj, Removed Pac-Man Project, etc.)"
Customhacker (talk | contribs) 02:49, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

Could you please give me a quick explanation of what that is?
jvvg (talk | contribs) 02:50, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
Essentially, it was a extension created by World_Languages that would show if a user was on Scratch or not. It was banned by the Scratch Team.
Customhacker (talk | contribs) 02:54, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
No, that doesn't seem worthy of an article.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 02:59, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
Many users complained (I forgot that part!) The creator told me to say "tell him isOnline received 80 downloads in two days, one day Scratch being down for 5 hours" .... The creator is also a wiki editor. (I am not trying to argue. I am having 2 conversations at once. Also, according to the rules, it says that it should be considered by multiple editors. Does that mean I can ask some other editors?)
Customhacker (talk | contribs) 03:03, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
That still doesn't change the policy. It is not a major part of Scratch history. Other editors would probably agree with that. I actually created a similar extension back in the 1.4 days that showed peoples' post counts, and the Scratch Team banned that one, and that's not on the Wiki either. In the brief time it was out there (a few hours), a bunch of people started using it.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 03:06, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

Custom Sig Tests

Customhacker (talk | contribs) 05:25, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

Really? Because this is how I do my signature:

The 5 tildes at the end are for the timestamp.
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk | contribs 15:11, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

Customhacker Logo Blue.jpg Cυƨтσмнαcκεя ( тαʟκ | cσптяıв ) 15:31, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
If you go to your user preferences (click your username at the top right and select "Preferences" from the dropdown), you can set your signature to your custom sig (the part in curly braces) and check the Wikitext option. This will make your signature show when you type in the four tildes.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:54, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
What would I do then if I would like to change my signature back to normal?

List of Rejected Suggestions

This is about the main website, but I figured I'd post it here because you are more active here. I have tons of Ideas for your list of rejected suggestions, but it only gets updated about once per week. I was wondering if I could do it, as I am active in the forums everyday and see most posts. (I also manage to find tons of duplicates). I thank you for considering.
Customhacker Logo Blue.jpg Cυƨтσмнαcκεя ( тαʟκ | cσптяıв )

Remember that a lot of people already don't read the list, and making it long will only make it less likely for people to read it, so it really should just be for the most important ones.

jvvg (talk | contribs) 20:51, 11 February 2017 (UTC)
I dont know. There have been more rejected things, and your thread has just gotten full of spam. I understand it may not be useful, but may I make one? (Im getting confused about whether you are saying yes or no)
Customhacker Logo Blue.jpg Cυƨтσмнαcκεя ( тαʟκ | cσптяıв )
The thread is full of spam simply because it's a sticky and people post on the first thread they see. If you make a thread that's a sticky and don't close it, it will also find itself full of spam. You are welcome to make one (I'm not a forum moderator or Scratch Team member, so you don't need my permission for anything forum-related), but I am warning you that it probably won't help, as we already have two sticky threads detailing the list of rejected suggestions and many people still suggest stuff listed in both of those. I also can't guarantee that the Scratch Team will sticky it, seeing as there are already two other similar threads.

    Bureaucrats

    Hi, it's me again. I was wondering how people get bureaucracy? Is it only ST members, or are there some selected Scratchers (or I should say, Wikians) with no relation to the ST who did well enough on the Wiki that they became bureaucrats? I'm not interested in the responsibility, I'm just curious.
    Kenny2scratch (talk | contribs) 04:10, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

    When the Wiki was originally created, some of the founding members (e.g. Lucario621) were bureaucrats. However, now, only ST members can be bureaucrats.

    A question about the wikis

    Why is this wiki on a scratch.mit.edu domain and the others on a .info domain?
    Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,322)) 08:34, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

    This Wiki is officially sponsored and hosted by the Scratch Team while the others are hosted and organized separately.

    Question!

    Why hello there! (Please click all links so you get the whole story) So, @customhacker, (I'm sure you know him) made a studio called the Forum Wikian Helpers, for people who help out on the forums and are wiki editors. He invited me and some others. And then he had the idea of making a forum shop for Wikians (I think those are what they are called, right?) to request wikicode, and other stuff for editing the wiki. And then when he made the forum topic for the shop, he added an order form for wiki application grading. Basically you would be able to have us grade your wiki application. But then a thought came to my mind. And I asked @customhacker about it. I asked him "Hmm.... I think we should ask @jvvg before we add an application grading order form. Because maybe they want people to do their applications themselves. So maybe we should ask @jvvg for that." So basically, that is what I am asking you about! Could you please reply as soon as possible? Thanks! :)

    P.S.: It is fine if we cannot do wiki application grading, that is why I am asking you about it.
    Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk | contribs 18:52, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

    We wont say that "you are/ are not accepted," but try to give them advice on how to make their application better. We promise to not to give away the secrets. Will will also have the ST wipe the post after we look at it.

    A Wiki feature I think should be added

    Hi jvvg! I think there should be a new feature of the wiki for editors. You know on the left there are Scratch Wiki Home, Random Page, Community Portal... I think we need one more thing there for editors to see, and that is Stubs. It would help editors a lot when looking for something to do (like I always have to). Thanks!

    No, what I'm suggesting is a link in the bar on the left (the one with frequently used links, I use random page most often) to the Category:Stubs page. This would only appear when logged in as a wiki editor. It would be quite helpful for us editors when we want to take a look at things that need improvement.

    I tried adding it in the interface editor, but it doesn't appear to be displaying properly (once I can figure out how to make it display properly, my plan was to make a page with links to stuff to work on, including stubs, wiki standards articles, etc.)
    jvvg (talk | contribs) 02:38, 29 March 2017 (UTC)
    If that's the case, I wish you luck making it work. Can all editors edit that page (or will they be able to if it's protected right now)?

    02:46, 29 March 2017 (UTC)
    I couldn't get any links to show up on the sidebar, so unfortunately this would probably require a lot more in-depth work. However, only admins can edit the sidebar and once I create that page, I would probably protect it.
    jvvg (talk | contribs) 02:50, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

    Your status on the wiki

    You're a wiki admin, but you're not in the ST. In that case, you're not a bureaucrat? How did you become an admin?
    Kenny2scratch logo.jpg kenny2scratch  Talk  Contribs  Directory 
    08:15, 30 March 2017 (UTC)

    I originally became an EW because I implemented the account request system that is currently in use. I later became an admin basically because I asked to (after being an EW for over a year). The normal process is that we elect EWs whenever we see a need for more and at the election time we promote all the active EWs to admin.
    jvvg (talk | contribs) 18:35, 30 March 2017 (UTC)
    EW? Please define. You made the account request system, so you became one. What other ways are there to become one? Are there particular reasons for electing them? Or is there a nomination system? (Sorry about the influx of questions; I'm very curious about this.)
    Kenny2scratch logo.jpg kenny2scratch  Talk  Contribs  Directory

    Experienced Wikians. When needed, there is an election. See Scratch Wiki:Experienced Wikians for more information.
    Customhacker Logo Blue.jpg Cυƨтσмнαcκεя ( тαʟκ | cσптяıв ) 11:28, 31 March 2017 (UTC)
    To become an Experienced Wikian, you need to run in an election when we have one (we don't have any plans to host one in the immediate future, but we will post on the CP when one is coming up). Generally the way it works is that a bunch of people (usually it ends up being around 10) nominate themselves, then the existing EWs and admins pick a few of them (usually 5 or 6) to run, then the Wiki community votes on the people chosen to run and the top two become EWs. Also, there's no need to apologize. Questions are how we learn.

    ──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Originally we had a Wiki page to vote (see Scratch Wiki:Elections/October 2014 for an example), but now it's an offsite thing that I designed (users verify their Wiki credentials and then vote, but the votes are not shown publicly like they were before). I say my username as each letter (i.e. "jay vee vee gee"), but you're welcome to pronounce it however you want.
    jvvg (talk | contribs) 02:42, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

    Any screenshots or mockups of the offsite system so I can see what it's like? While waiting for your answer, I idly tried to pronounce your username as if it was a word, and ended up with something that sounded like "juvg" :P. Where'd you get the username/why choose that name?

    Kenny2scratch logo.jpg kenny2scratch  Talk  Contribs  Directory 
    00:09, 21 April 2017 (UTC)
    The Scratch 1.X website had an API where external sites could easily check a user's login, and on the Wiki you verified your identity by putting in your Scratch username and password. However, with Scratch 2.0, that was removed for security reasons (they said they were going to replace it with OAuth, but that never ended up happening). At the time, Mod Share was still active, and it also used that technique. Once that was no longer an option, I rewrote the registration system on Mod Share to use comment verification since that was the only good technique I could think of. Nobody had done anything new for the Scratch Wiki, so I emailed the ST asking if I could write it by reusing some of the code used for Mod Share, and they said yes. That's how we got what we have today.

    Kenny2scratch logo.jpg kenny2scratch  Talk  Contribs  Directory 
    09:30, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

    It only triggers the message if the content you add is at the end of the section (which in your case it was, even though it wasn't a new message). In the future, if you mark the edit as minor, then WM won't check it. Unfortunately it can be hard to tell what is a message and what is header stuff since as a human it involves looking at what content was added. However, now that you brought this to my attention, I am thinking that maybe if it's in the first section and the edit is made by the owner, then it could ignore it.

    In defense of the editor, I believe they may have thought it was the AF page, so I wouldnt label it Vandalism yet. (Im not trying to argue...)

    __TOC__

    Your TOC doesn't show the sections before it, so it only shows posts on the page. However, my TOC on my talk page is also after the non-post sections but it shows those sections! Why is this so, and what did you do differently?

    Take a look at the source of the page. They aren't actually section headers, I just made them look like it.

    User:WikiMonitor/Configuration/UnsignedMessage

    Hi, it's me again. I noticed that in the page ^^ the </code> tag should be inside the <nowiki> tags instead of outside because otherwise you get what I see: the rest of the configuration has default formatting as opposed to code formatting. Do you want to fix this? It's purely a graphics error; I assume it doesn't affect the messages because the UnsignedMessage is just fine. Any thoughts?

    That would cause the message to display wrong on talk pages, so it would be best not to change it.

    About the Tips article

    Shouldn't it have {{Featured}} on it now? I was going to add it but I found that it was protected. I posted this message to LiFayTheGoblin but she said ask another admin, so I'm bringing it to your attention because you're the most active admin.

    About images

    Is it possible to set the size of images relative to the element containing them? What I'm getting at is, in my Welcome template I have the font-size set to 1.75vh. This sets it relative to the height of its containing element (in this case the bordered div). Is it possible to use a File: link and set its size in vh rather than px? I want to set the font size to default and have the image size get set relative to the size of the div instead. Any tips?
    Kenny2scratch logo.jpg kenny2scratch  Talk  Contribs  Directory 
    08:04, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

    I've changed it now so that the font size is 12px, but I'm still afraid if the div's width gets too narrow it'll overflow the text again. I ask again: is it possible to set an image's size to a unit other than px?

    00:39, 18 May 2017 (UTC)
    You can use a percent, or alternatively you can use other attributes to determine how it fits in with everything else there.
    jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:15, 18 May 2017 (UTC)
    I believe percent is percent of original width though, not of container size, which is what I'm really looking for. I'm trying to make the div fit itself to the text inside, and change the image size accordingly, instead of having a fixed div height to fit a fixed image size, and changing the font size accordingly (which has been unreliable since two people contacted me about text overflowing outside the box). Is this possible?
    Kenny2scratch logo.jpg kenny2scratch  Talk  Contribs  Directory 
    23:08, 18 May 2017 (UTC)
    It's definitely possible. I can't think off the top of my head how to do it, but if you want I can give it a try.
    jvvg (talk | contribs) 23:30, 18 May 2017 (UTC)
    Yes please. I want to settle the problem of my div size once and for all. Tell me here when you find a way; meanwhile I will continue trying my own methods.

    Interestingly enough, it's actually displaying properly for me, using Firefox on Windows 10 (I also run Linux, and I don't remember whether or not it displays properly there). However, an alternative implementation would be to use a table like a lot of the header templates do.
    jvvg (talk | contribs) 02:21, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

    ──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I made it as a table in my sandbox. If you like that better, feel free to use it. Because it's a table, it shouldn't break prematurely since it needs to include every element.
    jvvg (talk | contribs) 02:25, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

    Thank you so much! Although I didn't use your particular code (I simply used <table> tags instead of the wiki's weird {|} syntax), I didn't think of using tables! The box looks almost perfect now! (I wanted to have the image fit snugly inside the border, but you can't have everything.) This topic is now Yes Done (if you keep track of that like the CP does).

    Could you delete User:Kenny2scratch/scratchwikiskin.css for me? It was an experiment to see whether user css worked. It seems not to. I don't know how to access $wgAllowUserCss to confirm though. If it is enabled, tell me what I'm doing wrong; otherwise, just delete that page. Thanks!

    WikiMonitor needs to detect custom signatures.

    When I make a post like this, WikiMonitor believes that it is not signed when it is.
    1a3c5e7g9i's armemedillo.gif 1a3c5e7g9i(Talk|Contributions) 02:31, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

    You need to go change your signature by going to username (top right) -> preferences and setting it. Then it can be included with four tildes and also include the timestamp. WM requires a timestamp in order to think your post was signed properly.
    jvvg (talk | contribs) 22:55, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
    How do you set your signature? Does it have to be wiki text, or can it be transcluded from a link?
    1a3c5e7g9i's armemedillo.gif 1a3c5e7g9i(Talk|Contributions) 02:31, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
    Set the box in preferences to {{User:1a3c5e7g9i/Signature}} and check the box that says "Treat signature as wikitext (without an automatic link)".
    jvvg (talk | contribs) 01:53, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

    1a3c5e7g9i's armemedillo.gif 1a3c5e7g9i(Talk|Contributions) 02:31, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
    You can round it using CSS border-radius. However, please change the colors and don't blur it so that it's not so hard to read.
    jvvg (talk | contribs) 02:34, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
    Yes, please change your signature. I can't see your name in the siggy at all.

    It's completely visible to me...? I removed the shadows if your monitor renders them above the intended text.
    1a3c5e7g9i's armemedillo.gif 1a3c5e7g9i(Talk|Contributions) 21:33, 23 May 2017 (UTC)

    ──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── The colors of the text and background look extremely similar to me.

    On a related note, please do what I did in my preferences for my siggy. Your current signature is substituted instead of transcluded, and that adds a lot to talk pages. Your relatively small message added 603 bytes to the page just because of your signature! For what I did to my siggy, take a look here.
