Hello Kenny2scratch, it has appears that you have deleted my wiki post.I understand that it was my fault for making the post. Next time, I will be more careful. -unsigned comment by ScrappyLampyYT (talk | contribs)
It's okay! You're not in trouble - just make sure to keep future pages you create on topic. Check S:NEWPAGES and S:GUIDES for those guidelines.
How come on all the edits against the wiki rules, the visibility of the edits is changed to hide it as well? No other wiki I know of does this, and it is the same as pretending it never happened. BookTV (talk | contribs) 15:02, 3 July 2021 (UTC)
I'm not Ken, but this isn't always the case (although the presence of a vague deletion summary "Violation of Wiki guidelines" perhaps doesn't make that clear). Usually there are specific reasons that hidden revisions are hidden. For instance, if someone was breaking the Scratch Community Guidelines—like posting something inappropriate for Scratch or sharing personal information—the relevant revisions would be hidden to prevent people from seeing the offending content in the page history. Or, if someone was complaining about their Scratch ban on the wiki, their messages would likely be removed and the relevant revisions hidden (since we don't want people to see said messages). Blatant vandalism is also usually hidden.
However, if a user simply, say, used inappropriate first-person in an article, which is also against the Wiki guidelines, their revisions would most likely not be hidden because there is not much reason to hide those revisions. I think that simple violations of BRD are also not usually hidden.
If you've seen other wikis that are less strict about hiding revisions, this is perhaps because the Scratch Wiki is a different wiki with different practices it needs to follow. For instance, edits are beholden to the Scratch Community Guidelines here. We also are perhaps more strict than some other wikis when it comes to privacy, for example by hiding the entries in the block log.
I hope I've adequately explained how we don't just hide all guideline-breaking revisions, but that normally revisions are hidden because they specifically shouldn't be seen. If you have suggestions on how the wiki's processes can be improved, feel free to post feedback on the Community Portal. Also, if you have further questions, feel free to ask. And thanks for your contributions to the wiki! bigpuppytalk▪︎contribs 16:46, 3 July 2021 (UTC)
In less words, things against Wiki guidelines are to be fixed, with the history of the fixing clearly visible for future reference. However, things against Scratch guidelines must never be visible at all, even in page history, or else we risk drawing the Scratch Team's ire.
Additionally, sometimes we hide revisions and logs to not draw attention to egregious violators of either Wiki guidelines (e.g. bringers of drama and vandalism). This is both for their privacy, as bigpuppy says, and so that people are not rewarded with attention for doing something wrong. (The latter of these two reasons is admin convention here, but an explicit guideline on Wikipedia. We don't need an explicit guideline on the matter because the account request process makes vandalism blissfully rare.)
And why did you just change the visibility of my question on someone's wall and remove it? It did nor violate the wiki guidelines in ANY way, especially becsuse I was talking about a PAGE on this WIKI. BookTV (talk | contribs) 22:28, 6 July 2021 (UTC)
No, it didn't violate the Wiki guidelines in any way. It violated Scratch guidelines. Soliciting invitations to unmoderated chat is against the Community Guidelines and your question would have gotten you alerted on the Scratch website. kenny2scratchTalkContribsDirectory 00:29, 7 July 2021 (UTC)
