Why do so many people quit the WIki?

I feel like there is at least 1 or 2 new users every day, but for the past year it's basically the same 8-10 active editors on the whole Wiki. Why do people tend to leave or just quit? Could we do anything to make Wiki editors feel more comfortable? I wouldn't mind making a YouTube video perhaps with a video tutorial on the whole process (though I need to still get Quicktime or a good screen recorder)

Maybe someone should ask some of these disappearing users why they disappear.

I am not writing on the wiki as much these days - so I will tell you why - it is because some people are interested in the Scratch Wiki at first, but realized writing an article is hard work, then abandon the wiki. Secondly, homework I think the first reason is mainly why (i have been bogged down with homework recently tho)

Right. It took me a long time to figure out that there were more than seven people in the whole wiki, those seven being
  • jvvg
  • Turkey3
  • KrIsMa
  • Mathfreak231
  • ErnieParke
  • krett12
  • Scimonster

I would say those are the mostly active people on this Wiki.

Anybody disagree?

No offense, but your account was only approved yesterday, so i wouldn't count you as being really active... but i would count myself, even if i don't edit all the time.

I can see that. But I am saying, I am part of that list. It's like 99% us and 1% the rest. In fact, I think I'll put you on that list. Thanks for telling me this.

I think that part of the issue, along with what @KrIsMa pointed out, is that a lot of new (and sometimes old) Scratch Wiki editors can't find a place to edit when they first come on. You also have to consider that there are a few people who come on just for the profile page. (Although thankfully very little)
By the way, is this now the main discussion versus the one in the community portal?
Edit: I found the answer, and it's yes.

Please, if you get Quicktime, don't depend on its screen recorder. It lags like molasses. :P

Mmm. I made a timelapse video with it, and I gave up because it made typing slower. :P

Plus, it's quite a rip off. $30 seriously? Why not $10 :P Maybe I'll make my own simple one once I learn C#.

It's only a rip-off if you don't own a Mac...

I'm just way busier these days; homework and other school things are a giant factor since I don't have time to get and focused on the wiki. A little bit of lack of interest too.

Agree with you about lack of interest -- no offence to anyone, but some of the conversations here get really uninteresting. :P (Not that they aren't necessary!)
blob8108 (talk | contribs) 14:28, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
For me it's not even that the wiki is particularly uninteresting; there are usually just so many other things I'd rather do.

Why not me, turkey3, and The Blob (it is okay if I call you that?) make a video together. We could call ourselves the Tri-People.

I changed my mind, I hate that name.

Does molasses even lag?

Krett12 (talk | contribs) 21:35, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Umm how come I'm not on the list? Am I not active?

We seem to have halted discussion on this matter.......
