== Where do you draw the line? ==

Where do you draw the line for unessesary formating of talk pages. I know a user who's talk page is very anoying and has so much formating to the point that It's ruining the messages,  templates, signatures, etc. Where do you draw the line? (I'm not trying to be mean to this specific user or anything){{User:Ajsya/Siggy}} 02:33, 1 September 2019 (UTC)

:I'm going to need more context (and better spelling: un<big>n</big>e<big>c</big>es<big>s</big>ary, format<big>t</big>ing, an<big>n</big>oying) than that - I draw the line on a case-by-case basis, and my line may be different from other EWs' lines. If you really don't want to snitch publicly, you can report the latest revision of the talk page concerned (go to history, next to "undo" is "report") and state what you think is excessive, but I think it would be better to just say here.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 07:27, 1 September 2019 (UTC)

== Violations of Scratchers' Privacy ==
 +
 +
Hi! As you know, when a user submits an account request, they input their email. There is no problem with that. However, the problem I have is that those emails show in the account request queue. This feels like a violation of Scratchers' privacy, especially as Experienced Wikians are just normal Scratchers like them. Of course we'll never ''use'' their email addresses for anything non-Scratch Wiki-related, but that's exactly my point. We don't ''need'' to see their email addresses. All emails are handled by the system. Therefore, I don't see why we need to be able to see their emails. It's fine if you can't/don't have time to/don't think it's necessary, but I was wondering, if it isn't too hard too, if you could remove "email" from what we see in the request queue. Again, it's okay if you can't or have other opinions, but I'm just telling you mine. {{e|:)}}<br/>{{User:Bigpuppy/Real Signature}} 16:30, 8 September 2019 (UTC)

:I agree with this.  {{User:Smileycreations15/sig}} 16:33, 8 September 2019 (UTC)

::That's not so possible since CA relies on emails and we rely on a bold confirmed symbol, but I can try and wing it if someone sends over a copy of the modified CA.  <br/>{{User:Banana439monkey/sig}} 16:41, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
 +
:::That makes since.{{User:Ajsya/Siggy}} 18:22, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
 +
::::(*sense)
 +
::::Actually, though the English wiki procedure ignores the emails and only requires their confirmation, the Test wiki actually uses emails for when the request is held. Additionally, "Experienced Wikians are just normal Scratchers like them" is not entirely true - on the main site, sure, there is no higher rank than Scratcher besides the Team, but on the Wiki you have been elected to be trusted with this information and, in the rare cases when it's necessary, use it. Besides that, showing the email can help with reviewing the request in the first place - if the email looks like a student email (which frequently can't receive external mail) or looks fake, EWs can then refer the case to a bureaucrat; and that can't be done automatically by the system.
 +
::::As to the whole "privacy" thing, we make it clear that we collect emails, and it would be foolish not to expect them to be seen. We also cleared our email collection (and viewing) with the ST, during both the transfers to wiki.scratch.mit.edu and to the current domain.
 +
::::All in all, removing emails is more trouble than it's worth, and worth more than its trouble.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 02:47, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

== Your siggy reminder ==
 +
First off, I'd like to say thanks for that, it has saved me countless times :')
 +
Second, this is just something that I came to point out which I just now happened to realize. It says "tildas" instead of "tildes". I know it's a tiny error but it bothers me :P (I will fix it on my page if I can figure out how).
 +
Third, how on earth do you play Minecraft and never play survival.
 +
And *inhales* fourth, your name tester thing doesn't say whether "K2s" is okay or not. It has K2S as ok and k2s as not, but since K2s is the case of your name, is it okay?{{User:EIephant Lover/Signature}} 23:32, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
 +
:I've always spelled it tildas even though I do know it's not the more common spelling - so consider this my minor attempt at language reform :)
 +
:Minecraft and never survival: easy, just always creative! I'm sort of a redstone geek and most recently I've tried (and failed) twice to build a 74181 ALU with redstone. (First attempt, 1+1 = 6. Second attempt, 1+1 = 4.)
 +

::1. No reply was made
 +
::2. I tried looking it up before I made that post to be sure I wasn't wrong about the misspelling. Then again, the internet doesn't know everything XD
 +
::3. That makes me cringe XD No problem with using creative but never survival?! It's sometimes more fun to make contraptions (you probably already know but redstone exists in survival XD) in survival, because it's not just all laid out for you. <small>I also have no idea what a 74181 ALU is. Here I go to Google...</small>
 +
::4. Makes sense :P{{User:EIephant Lover/Signature}} 00:24, 5 October 2019 (UTC)
 +
:::Regarding tilda/tilde, I'm not saying you're wrong - in fact, I'm admitting that I'm wrong, but I'm using my spelling regardless because I feel it's better spelled that way (I certainly pronounce it like "tilda" and not "tilde") and if I use it enough other people might start following my example and it'll become an alternate spelling rather than an incorrect spelling.
 +
:::Regarding Minecraft, let me clarify: I have played in survival mode before, just not an actual survival world. (In fact, I've played in every gamemode.) I know full well that nothing that exists in creative doesn't exist in other modes. :) (A 74181 ALU is one of the original models for the part of a CPU that actually does the calculation. It had two 4-bit number inputs, one 4-bit opcode input, and one 4-bit result output, as well as a few more in/out bits for miscellaneous behavior. It's the simplest ALU model that was actually used commercially, but even then [and even with numbers up to a max of 16!] it's really complicated and I have yet to get it right.){{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 04:24, 5 October 2019 (UTC)
 +
::::Back to the tilde/tilda thing again, it kind of reminds me of that book Frindle. But I understand now :P
 +
::::And ohh, okay. Except for some blocks don't/can't ever exist in survival without the world being in creative/using cheats first, like command blocks.
 +
::::No need to explain anymore but that whole ALU thing went over my head XD{{User:EIephant Lover/Signature}} 17:08, 5 October 2019 (UTC)

== Help on Scratch ==

Hello. Thank you for your help on the new profile page thing. Can you help me with these things:
 +
How to make a talk page.
 +
How to make archives.
 +
How to make private templates (if not possible, how can you make templates not listed in the Scratch archive of templates).
 +
How do you talk through your mouse.
 +
Thank you.
 +
<scratchsig>Legogo7777</scratchsig> 01:09, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

:Hi, have you read the [[Help:Welcome|welcome tutorial]] yet? Talk pages are explained in more detail there. You don't need to mark every topic you create as {{t|not done}}, by the way - that template is only necessary if the discussion has gone on for a while and still hasn't been resolved.
 +
:Archives are made by creating a subpage of your talk page (e.g. "User talk:Legogo7777/Archive 1") and moving all of the topics on your talk page into the subpage. After moving the topics, add {{t|protect|talk page archive}} to the top to mark it for protection (to ensure that nobody edits it).
 +
:Regarding templates, first off: this is not Scratch. This is the Scratch Wiki. There is no "Scratch archive of templates" - there is only the [[:Category:Templates|list of templates]] on the Scratch Wiki.
 +
:Second, all templates, no matter where, can be used by anyone anywhere (besides {{t|open userpage}}, which has some special magic). However, if a template is only meant to be used on your userpage, you can create it as a subpage of your userpage and simply include it like so: <code><nowiki>{{User:Legogo7777/Template Name}}</nowiki></code> Do not create it in the Template namespace, as that is for templates meant to be used on real Wiki pages.
 +
:"talking through your mouse" is done with the [[Help:HTML|HTML]] <code>title</code> attribute. This:
 +
<syntaxhighlight lang="html"><span title="This is the title of the element.">This is the content of the element.</span></syntaxhighlight>
 +
:Produces this:
 +
:<span title="This is the title of the element.">This is the content of the element.</span>
 +
:Hope that helps :){{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 04:55, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

Thank you.
