== About gender words in niselak ==
  
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 thought that "im" and "if" isn't necessary; for example, the speaker can use "in", then they can specify with words if they want. {{User:Ahmetlii/sig}} 10:56, 19 August 2020 (UTC)
 +
:There isn't any vocabulary to describe gender - if you want to use "male" as an adjective you just use the root adjective word with the male suffix, "dakim".{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 12:25, 19 August 2020 (UTC)

== Featuring? ==
: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)

Since you're an administrator, can you feature images & articles?
 +
<scratchsig>LankyBox01</scratchsig> 19:04, 22 August 2020 (UTC)
 +
:The featured images are semi-infrequently decided by Community Portal nomination and informal voting, so no single person is responsible for featuring them. Bigpuppy seems to take charge of that process most of the time, but he isn't the one who actually does the featuring.
 +
:Featured articles are part of the larger [[S:WW|Wiki Wednesday]] programme, and suggestions for WW articles are made on a [[topic:288005|forum topic]] in Show&Tell since it's the readers and not the writers who have the most say in what article was most helpful. I personally am responsible for going through those suggestions and choosing one to feature for the English wiki's contribution to Wiki Wednesday, which does include making it the featured article on this wiki as well.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 21:10, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

What's the code for the "Talk to me" button on your Profile Page?
: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)

::::Each user's page is meant to be unique - it represents them. Most of the templates you use on your userpage will (and should) most likely be subpages of your userpage. For example, I use a [[User:Kenny2scratch/Header]] transclusion on every one of my userpages. I don't have recommendations for "templates that might be useful on [your] user or talk page".{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 09:27, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

How can a Wikian become an Admin? <scratchsig>LankyBox01</scratchsig> 18:14, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
一点儿 (BTW, i think), how did you figure out your milestones? <br/>{{User:12944qwerty/Templates/Sig}} 00:32, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

:You must be an Scratch Team member or you must be an Experienced Wikian and must be appointed by the admins.{{User:Ahmetlii/sig}} 18:16, 23 August 2020 (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.)

::Let's read that again. How can a '''Wikian''' become an Admin? <scratchsig>LankyBox01</scratchsig> 18:18, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
: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)

:::[[S:ELECTIONS]] and be appointed by an admin or be a Scratch Team member. There's not another choice - we're not Wikipedia nor Discord.{{User:Ahmetlii/sig}} 18:22, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
::(My teacher told me that 一点儿 means "by the way" and "a little". Also, why does it have "说说" at the end of what you were taught. (Double "speak").)
+
:To provide a more authoritative answer, Wikians do not become admins directly. They can be [[S:ELECTIONS|elected]] to Experienced Wikian, and after a long time and a lot of trust an EW occasionally gets appointed admin by the rest of the staff.
::(It looks like you do know simplified.....")
+
:Scratch Team members are promoted to bureaucrat as a matter of course.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 20:35, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
::Oh, dang! I have to to count back 250+ edits then!! <br/>{{User:12944qwerty/Templates/Sig}} 03:41, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
 
:::Ooh, there should be something in MediaWiki for this then.... <br/>{{User:12944qwerty/Templates/Sig}} 03:43, 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.
 
:::Contributions are paginated, remember? "show at most n contributions" - choose 250, then go one page into "older 250" and count [your edit count] - 250 - [the milestone] edits down.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 03:46, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
 
::::Oof, I did think that 一点儿 did mean "by the way". Now I remember that 对了 means "BTW". Oops.
 
::::It's 280+. Too much to count. Maybe I'll make a scraper to do it for me.. <br/>{{User:12944qwerty/Templates/Sig}} 22:34, 20 November 2019 (UTC)
 
  
== Hey, I have a question ==
+
== Something on your main page ==
  
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)

There is an inappropriate word on your main page, I’d recommend you remove it to avoid an alert. <scratchsig>78ch3</scratchsig> 23:11, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
:You could copy it directly from [[User:Kenny2scratch/Content|my userpage content]], giving credit in an HTML comment.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 10:54, 15 November 2019 (UTC)
+
:Could you point out specifically where it is? We have an abuse filter to prevent anyone (including admins) from using words that are censored on the Scratch Forums. Make sure you haven't misread anything - "þorn", for example, is the name of a letter.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 23:35, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
::Okay, thanks! {{e|:)}} Just so you know though, I normally don't put my credits in comments - I put them all in bulk in a "Credits" section.<scratchsig>Nambaseking01</scratchsig> 10:06, 16 November 2019 (UTC)
+
::That word is exactly what someone could take the wrong way. As I said, it was a recommendation, you don’t have to remove it, but, even though it is the name of a letter (I already know this), someone could confuse it with another word. <scratchsig>78ch3</scratchsig> 23:38, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
 +
:::Anyone who hasn't been exposed to the word you're thinking of before has an equal chance of misreading it as "born". Let that be your interpretation of it too.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 23:42, 23 August 2020 (UTC)

== Question about the block log ==
+
== milkshake good ==
  
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.

:I can say with relative certainty that this is ''the'' weirdest talk page message I've ever received. Congratulations.{{User:Kenny2scratch/sig}} 01:01, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

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)
