==Hello! How do you organize your pages so well?==

== TestWiki ==
Hi! I just want to say hi, that welcome tutorial helped me a lot. I know how to use the wiki pretty well now. Just how is your user page, talk page, and articles so organized.I've only just got the hand of the wiki. But, like how do you add pictures, make those boxes at the side, and more. Also, I'm only eight so please don't suggest to complcated stuff. Again, thanks for showing me [[Help:Welcome|this]]. Also one thing, I preveiwed this and I saw that my name was on there instead of AdeptMind. After, you tell me this I should be good. Thanks!  <scratchsig>998930</scratchsig> 01:10, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
 
== Creating A Professional-Looking User Page ==
 
  
Hello Kenny2scratch,
+
Hello Ken, just wondering about the testwiki, i have requested an account, and am wondering if i get accepted what does it take to get sysop rights? or is that something that takes a while, correct me if i am being annoying, kind regards,
  
I was looking at your user page, and I thought it looked very professional. I was wondering if you could give me any tips or suggestions about how to organize my user page, or if you could let me know another place where I can find that information. I'm also curious about how to sign my username. I tried using the "Sign your username" wiki markup code, but I couldn't figure out how to use it.

:You're way ahead of yourself - at least according to your account request, you speak no languages other than English, and that's one of the crucial parts of editing an other language wiki. Becoming sysop (at least [[User talk:Kenny2scratch/Permalinks#Would you like to get involved in the international Scratch-Wikis?|in my case]]), in particular on the test wiki, takes a general knack of international culture, and ideally a strong intuitive familiarity with MediaWiki.
 +
:Thanks for reminding me about the test wiki, though - I haven't checked it recently because I've been flattened by schoolwork. I appreciate your willingness to help, but at the moment it would seem you don't have the skills we're looking for (which, of course, is not to say that you can't acquire them!).{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 13:51, 11 November 2019 (UTC)
  
I'm editing this message to ask another question. I'm really new to the Scratch Wiki (As you probably know) and I saw that there was a bullet point on your talk page that said: "For reference, revision 231783 was done by AdeptMind on 17/07/2019" I'm worried I accidentally edited your page. If you could let me know how this works, and if I'm doing it right, that would be great! Thanks, and sorry for all of the questions!

== When to archive ==
:Hi! Did you read the [[S:WELCOME|Welcome tutorial]]? One of the things it covers is how to use talk pages properly. In advance, though, you sign your name with four tildas (four of these: ~) at the end of the last line of your message.
 
:I built up my userpage over months and eventually years. Under the surface, it's actually a hideous mess of styling and failed experiments (though I have attempted to refactor it before). I encourage you to learn some stuff about HTML, then try to recreate (or approximate, I wouldn't recommend going for a complete or accurate reformation) my userpage ''without'' looking at the source code; once you have done that, you can start thinking about how you want your page to look at a higher level without having to worry about the execution of the concept. TL, DR: Learn about HTML and figure things out - it's your page and I can't tell you how to make it.
 
:The "revision NUM was done by NAME on DD/MM/YYYY" is just something I have in there for fun - it uses the [[Help:Magic words|magic words]] REVISIONID, REVISIONUSER, REVISIONDAY, REVISIONMONTH, and REVISIONYEAR, all of which you can look up in the linked page. Also, talk pages are meant to be edited by others - it is only userpages where you are not allowed to edit others'.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 22:40, 17 July 2019 (UTC)
 
  
Thanks for all the help! I don't currently have time to learn HTML, but I'm going to be taking a programming class in school next year, so hopefully that will cover HTML, or at least help me learn fundamental skills that will help with HTML.
+
Is there a certain size you would recommend archiving my page at? Or a certain amount of posts?{{User:Dominic305/signature}} 15:51, 11 November 2019 (UTC)
 +
:No, just archive whenever you feel like it. I personally go with 20 topics, but KrIsMa goes with 100 and you apparently go with 15 KB. You do you. {{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 16:47, 11 November 2019 (UTC)

== HeLlO! ==
  
Oh, I thought signing your username literally meant ''signing'' it XD. I was confused about if it would ask me to use my mouse to sign my name for each message, or if there was a place I could create a pre-made signature for each message, but now I know that's not what it means. Thanks!

一点儿 (BTW, i think), how did you figure out your milestones? <br/>{{User:12944qwerty/Templates/Sig}} 00:32, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
 +
:(一点儿, or 一點兒 in traditional, means "a little" - "by the way" is 順便說說, or 顺便说说 in simplified.)
 +
:I just keep track of them as they come up - [[Special:Editcount/Kenny2scratch]] lists individual edit counts for each namespace. Additionally, when I actually pass a milestone I don't usually hit it spot on, so I count back in [[Special:Contributions/Kenny2scratch|my contribs]] to find the edit that actually pushed me over.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 01:35, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

:::Your teacher is mistaken, or they come from a part of China that has really weird customs. 一點兒 always means "a little" or "a little bit". 说说 is a shortening of 说一说, literally "say a say" but roughly meaning "mention".

:::I don't know simplified - I used Google Translate from Chinese to traditional Chinese.

I see you added a warning area that tells all users they need to switch to ScratchWikiSkin temporarily if they're in the Vector one.

== ed/ing ==
 
 
 
So, about the grammar on the "need edited/ing", I've had issues with this before, when my friend told me it was wrong. I guess where I'm from the the "to be" is implied, e.g. "the dog needs fed" really means "the dog needs to be fed". My friend said it wasn't implied (I said something like "need punished"), so I was like "Haven't your parents ever said "the dog needs fed?" And some of my friends agreed with me, and she disagreed. I guess when it comes to talking, in casual conversation, it's implied to most people, but on the Wiki I should be more careful :P Plus, I guess you interpreted it as what I meant was "ing", but I saw that and was like "What? That isn't what I meant." If I had realized that I would have changed it to "need to be repositioned".
 
 
 
Just felt the need to note this.{{User:EIephant Lover/Signature}} 23:43, 26 July 2019 (UTC)
 
:Wait so what are you talking about?
 
:Regardless, in standard English grammar, the only correct forms are "the dog needs ''to be fed''" and "the dog needs ''feeding''". "The dog needs ''fed''" is simply invalid.
 
:But I need to know what the context is.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 16:42, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
 
::Haha sorry, I meant the latest revision of [[Default Value|this]]
 
::I didn't mean you were wrong to correct me, I knew that it was wrong once I saw your edit. I just felt like saying something about it since I've had an issue with it in the past. I know that it's wrong, it's just that I would have corrected it ''differently'', and I thought it was kind of funny.
 
::I guess I just have a strange sense of humor.{{User:EIephant Lover/Signature}} 18:14, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
 
:::Ahh, it is all so clear now.
 
:::Interesting. I actually considered both corrections, but I went with the ed->ing change because a) I thought that that was what you meant to say and b) ed->ing made for a shorter sentence than ed->to be ed.

How did you make the line on top of your status in your header? I'm just wondering because I want to make one in my header ([[User:Ajsya/Header]]). To add some other text under.{{User:Ajsya/Siggy}} 17:05, 5 August 2019 (UTC)

== Did I make the right decision? ==
 
 
 
Hey, could you please look at [https://en.scratch-wiki.info/w/index.php?title=Special:ConfirmAccounts/authors&acrid=5547&wpShowRejects=1 this request]? I was ''really, really, really, really'' hard-pressed on this one, and I feel bad rejecting it as they had all the right parts, but were not specific enough and did not use complete sentences. Would you mind looking at it, and if you think differently than I do, possibly change it (as I trust your opinion more than mine)? Again, it was really hard for me to make this decision. Thanks (I hope it's okay that I'm posting this on your talk page). {{e|:)}}<br/>{{User:Bigpuppy/Real Signature}} 17:49, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
 
:Heh, I saw that one and left it for later because it was hard for me as well. It's easier to justify a decision in retrospect than it is before making it, so thank you for making that decision :)
 
:I think that was the right thing to do because:
 
:# It's not clear enough what each flaw is correcting (e.g. "the", but what was the original spelling?)
 
:# (Incorrectly) Linking to the [[Vector Graphics]] page doesn't tell us the intent - did they mean to add some info from that page? or add a link to that page? or...?
 
:And in general as you said it wasn't specific enough and didn't use complete sentences.
 
:(Posting this on my talk is fine since you don't have any other method of contacting me. *hint hint*){{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 00:51, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
 
::Yes, I see.

== 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.

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.)

::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.

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.

: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.
