== Hey, I have a question ==
 +
 +
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. I also want this, because my userpage in Vector is not so good looking as in ScratchWikiSkin. Could you please teach me how to do this? Thanks!<scratchsig>Nambaseking01</scratchsig> 19:58, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

== Question about the block log ==
 +
 +
I was scrolling through Recent Changes and I noticed that you blocked a user and then edited the logs so that it didn't show their name, block reason, etc.  I get why you censored that info for privacy, but what I don't understand is what's the purpose of having a [[Special:Log/block|block log]] if all it shows is (removed).  If you didn't want the info to display publicly, wouldn't it make more sense to make the page only viewable by bureaucrats and actually display the log information or simply delete the log page?<scratchsig>54329</scratchsig> 06:57, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
 +
:What you're talking about is an impossibility. We have no way (besides modding MediaWiki core) of hiding block logs automatically, so we simply manually hide all block logs as soon as creating them.
 +
:(We do already have a monkeypatch to hide the [[Special:BlockList]], but hiding particular types of logs, especially when they show up in other feeds, is impossible.){{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 07:51, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

:Why are blocks censored?{{User:Dominic305/signature}} 12:38, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
 +
::We do not publicize blocks, because they only attract negative attention to the blocked users, so we protect their privacy in all ways possible so that anyone who has no need to know only knows that someone was blocked, not who was blocked or who blocked them.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 12:55, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

:::Oh, so there's just no way to remove that page and you ''do'' have a special log just for bureaucrats.  Okie dokie, that answers my question.<scratchsig>54329</scratchsig> 16:26, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

== Image Compression ==
 +
 +
Your bot, TemplatesFTW, compressed my image for the Privacy Policy article, Privacy_Policy.PNG (not sure how to link to it without embedding the whole image), and reduced it by 5 KB. I don't know why it did that since I already compressed it before uploading, and it was smaller than any of the previous versions of the image, at 48 KB. Does it have to be below a certain maximum file size? <scratchsig>Groko13</scratchsig> 12:26, 9 December 2019 (UTC)
 +
:My bot won't reupload if the difference in size after compressing is <10% of the previous size; 10% of 48 KB is 4.8 KB, and a 5 KB difference is large enough to make it count. In the future, if you have compressed it, include the word "compress" (or any grammatically correct form of the word lol) somewhere in the upload message - it'll skip those.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 13:08, 9 December 2019 (UTC)

::Okay, thanks <scratchsig>Groko13</scratchsig> 13:27, 9 December 2019 (UTC)

== Updating an image daily ==
 +
 +
Hello! I was wondering if I could upload an image to the wiki (a Google Sheets statistic) and update the image daily (or weekly). Would this be OK, or would you rather me not do it? ([[User:Dominic305/public/Hyperdrive OS Stat Graph|I currently have the images hosted on an external website.]]){{User:Dominic305/signature}} 23:43, 13 December 2019 (UTC)
 +
:Your current method is fine, thanks for asking (I took a look at your links and checked that they're OK) - weekly uploads of a user image is not the kind of thing we want to encourage, for fear of flooding storage, let alone daily.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 06:09, 16 December 2019 (UTC)

== Extension Installment ==
 +
 +
Heyo!  For the [[Scratch Wiki:Scratch Wiki Adventure|Scratch Wiki Adventure]], we were hoping to use [[mw:Extension:GuidedTour|this extension]] as the "guide" for the user.  Do you think it'd be possible to have it installed here?<scratchsig>54329</scratchsig> 17:10, 18 December 2019 (UTC)

== I need help with the yeeting of the custom signature. ==
 +
 +
So, I made a [[User:TheAwesome98/signature|custom signature]], and I made sure it confomed to the rules. Now what? I have NO IDEA how to insert JavaScript files onto Wikis, by the way. <scratchsig>TheAwesome98</scratchsig> 16:44, 22 December 2019 (UTC)
 +
:[[S:GOODSIG]] is the guide to follow - it includes all the necessary instructions. JavaScript is irrelevant.

:<small>By the way, to "yeet" something is to throw it with great force - "yeeting" a custom signature doesn't make any sense.</small>{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 07:55, 24 December 2019 (UTC)

== Scratchblock Extensions ==
 +
 +
On the page [[Blocks]], I've added the extension blocks, but for half the extensions the blocks are not showing correctly. Can you fix this?
 +
{{User:CrazyBoy826/sig}} 01:40, 30 December 2019 (UTC)
 +
:I've fixed everything; the problem seems to be that you forgot to add <code>::extension</code> to the ones that are broken. For example <code><nowiki><sb>motor [ v] turn this way for () seconds::extension</sb></nowiki></code> would turn into <sb>motor [ v] turn this way for () seconds::extension</sb>. For me, using http://scratchblocks.github.io/ helps for previewing scratchblocks. Hopefully I helped! {{e|:)}} <scratchsig>TenType</scratchsig> 05:47, 30 December 2019 (UTC)

::Most extensions can be fixed by adding their extension names to the end, like ::ev3 or ::wedo. This fixes the icon at the left of the block. However, the text to speech, lego boost, and go direct ones don't seem to work. {{User:CrazyBoy826/sig}} 17:35, 2 January 2020 (UTC)

== Large images ==

When editing the wiki, I found some 1920*1080 pictures. How did they get here, and why are they not crashing pages?{{User:CrazyBoy826/sig}} 01:13, 3 January 2020 (UTC)
 +
:They were either uploaded before the size limits came into place, or uploaded by an admin for some reason; they're not crashing pages because the crashing problem isn't that extreme (it only happened a few times), but our size limits are in place to be better safe than sorry.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 03:13, 3 January 2020 (UTC)
