Revision as of 03:49, 6 December 2012 by Lucario621 (talk | contribs) (Question: Replied)

Welcome to my talk page! Holiday messages, requests, rants, questions, comments and anything else is welcome, as long as it abides by the Wiki policies. However, try to keep most discussions on the Community Portal discussion page, rather than here, unless it's something only I would know about or could help with; or else, I will move the discussion to the Community Portal discussion page.

My account, some free awesomesauce, and more my account

Listen. Today, I was roaming around Scratch when I came across the wiki. I soon decided to sign up. When I did... It said that my account had already been activated. Does someone either love me or hate me?

Oh, yes. I've decided to hand you some awesomesause to enhance your awesome awesomeness. Awesomesauce.png


Finally: I've seen this, and I think this has to do with you being an admin or something, but...

You deleted my page?

Anyway, I'd like to salute you for your awesomeness.

I don't think you'll be getting a reply in a while :P He doesn't come on that much anymore.

Well, about eight months ago you said that you wanted to join the wiki (your post), so an account was created for you. :P
(And yeah, Lucario doesn't come on the wiki much anymore - :'()

I see. Thanks anyway, guys. :(

View count

On Special:Statistics it says that this is the fourth most viewed page on the whole wiki. How'd it get +9000 views!?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 17:44, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Woah +9000 views. He must have cheated!
Dazman (talk | contribs) 18:24, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
Or maybe that's what the bureaucrats get, just from their title and popularity. :/
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 18:32, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
I'm not sure how accurate that is. Google Analytics says the BYOB article is fourth most visited...
WeirdF (talk | contribs) 19:00, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
Lucario used to manage the wiki, so we would come to his talk page instead of the Community Portal... uh, lol? :P
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 06:17, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Thank you so much

Yeah, I meant to say it before, but thank you so much for making me a sysop!!!! You were right, I really could use the tools. :P :D
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 10:19, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

I'm confused

Look. I don't see a single red link on any of those pages. Do you know where they are?

An accidentally created account

I was on the approval page, and I meant to approve Optimax-DJ, but I accidentally clicked on SJRCS_011! I'm pretty sure he's pretty new, so I'm not sure if he should come yet? :S Here was his submission anyways.

I would like to give my opinion on new programming ideas in the Scratch world. I have either uploaded or worked on a large variety of Scratch projects, including music, animated videos, typing, gaming, and contest programs. I also have served as a mentor at my school's computer programming club.

Is it fine? :3

I see he already made some edits, so I guess it's OK, right?

It was before that though. When they moved to a new server. >_>

That'd explain it.

Other people were able to edit though. Just a few got punished. :(

Haha, I didn't get any, but I figured you would get some :P.
Lucario621 (talk | contribs) 18:59, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

What what the styling problem you fixed?

If you ended the table in my header so that it wouldn't style the whole page, i did that intentionally.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 03:43, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

It seriously messed up the Scratch2 skin.
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 03:45, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
Oh yeah. It really did.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 03:49, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
I know it may look cool scimonster, but as veggie said, it causes some unwanted glitches with the format. I hope you can find another way to style your talk page without disturbing the page's layout. :)
Lucario621 (talk | contribs) 03:51, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
OK, i came up with something! The only problem now is that it doesn't like section edits...
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 18:55, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

This page is...

10th top viewed! XD How did that happen?
Hardmath123 (talk | contribs) 11:32, 3 May 2012 (UTC)

Oops. Sorry. I don't usually read the TOC's before posting; maybe I should get that habit...12:16, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Hardmath123 (talk | contribs)

So

Even if the 2.0 theme is in progress, why shouldn't it be used? And what's wrong with giving a link? Did JSO ask for it to be hidden?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 06:35, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

I wonder

Where'd you get this styling from? Lol.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 18:40, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

It's mostly based on an upcoming Scratch 2.0 skin for the Scratch Wiki. I'm trying this out to see how it would look to change various templates used on the wiki.
Lucario621 (talk | contribs) 00:59, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

It looked great. Why did you delete it?
Bsteward (talk | contribs)01:30, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

I didn't delete it (see, User:Lucario621/Sandbox8) - I just deleted the talk page that Scimonster created. :P
Lucario621 (talk | contribs) 02:33, 14 May 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, I miss read "User_Talk:" and "User:". Do you like how I styled the main page in my Sandbox using the styling in your Sanbox?
Bsteward (talk | contribs)03:11, 14 May 2012 (UTC)
I really like it. :3
@Lucario. I pretty much knew that. Hence the lol at the end.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 11:06, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

Lucario621 Sandbox8

What is the whole deal with your sandbox8. Dont we already have a community portal.
Joletole (talk | contribs) 10:43, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

See the conversation above this.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 11:07, 14 May 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, it's not a new Community Portal - it's just a test page for a new template. Perhaps it will replace the current help box on the top of the Community Portal. :)
Lucario621 (talk | contribs) 21:40, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

All those sandboxes

Is this what they're for? Also, do you plan on adding them? And can we edit them, even though they're in your sandboxes?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 09:07, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Umm, not necessarily. They're just pages I may or may not add to the wiki in the future. Since they're part of my user pages, no, you can't edit them. If you have suggestions or comments, you can just post them here, on my talk page.
Lucario621 (talk | contribs) 19:42, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
I think you should add them. They're pretty well written, and would serve as a great tutorial for new users. The first could even replace Scratch Wiki:Welcome, with the rest as subpages.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 07:15, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

Inappropriate Language

User:3sal2 recently used very inappropriate language. I just wanted to bring this topic to you.

scramble

Why'd you revert, then un-revert my edit? Just out of curiosity, really. :)
Hardmath123 (talk | contribs) 10:17, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

If you become an admin you'll know.
The [rollback] button is very easy to accidentally click, and doesn't provide a warning page.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 10:20, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
Oh. I thought I might have broken some rule, but then his re-rollback really confused me.
Hardmath123 (talk | contribs) 10:59, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I just accidentally pressed the button. I undid it though, so there's nothing to worry about. :)
Lucario621 (talk | contribs) 20:07, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

We need your verdict...

It's okay, don't worry. He's new to the wiki, and we all make mistakes. :) I see that you recently put a message on his talk page, so that's good. I know that a lot of the ways we do things here on the wiki (including how we respond to messages on talk pages) is a lot different from on the forums or on projects, so its understandable that he might be confused or make mistakes. Just be sure to be kind and help improve on his mistakes, and word things in a positive way - we want the Scratch Wiki to be a happy, diverse place!
Lucario621 (talk | contribs) 00:24, 1 October 2012 (UTC)
Lucario261, you seem to be a pretty cool guy. Here are my reasons for such dumb things:
  1. The New Wiki Page was for my help really.
  2. The Help:Contents is confusing.
  3. If I organized it Joletole would blow up.
  4. I was being dumb with the whole admin thing.
  5. I was having a bad day and couldn't think. Don't we all?
  6. I fixed my sig on all of my posts that I could find and now know.
  7. I don't know what Joletole means by indenting posts.
  8. I just fixed how my watchlist is. It had gotten messed up so I had no clue Joletole was talking to me. I wasn't ignoring him at all.

Thanks.
Curiouscrab (talk | contribs) 23:27, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

That's okay Curiouscrab. :) We all have bad days, and it's only natural that you're unfamiliar with how we do some of the things on the wiki. Everything can be edited and fixed, so there's no problem with making mistakes. I am also hoping to work on Help:Contents to improve that page and make the wiki easier to use for new members. I'm glad to hear your feedback about it - a long list can be quite boring too look at after all, and it could use a change. Thanks for the suggestions.
Lucario621 (talk | contribs) 00:49, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
The wiki could really use a suggestions page. I'm going inactive starting now.
Curiouscrab (talk | contribs) 00:58, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
It's okay Curiouscrab, I was having a bad day too. Sorry I blew up on you like that. I really should not have done that. I am really sorry.
Joletole (talk | contribs) 01:10, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

signature

Can I use this as my signature?

User:Curiouscrab/sig

I don't like to use the same photo over and over again. I like both pics and want to use both. Thanks.


Curiouscrab (talk | contribs) 23:16, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

To make discussions on the Scratch Wiki easy to navigate and understand, you should only use one signature (that you post by typing ~~~~). The image that is used on the wiki is the same one you have on the Scratch website. Perhaps you can combine the two photos together or pick your favorite one and then upload it on your My Stuff page? Having a fancy signature with special images isn't really important after all - I wouldn't worry about it too much. :)
Lucario621 (talk | contribs) 00:43, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

thanks

Thanks for deleting by my request. I was doing stuff in my sandbox and accidently created a new template thinking that I was still editing my sandbox. I had the double click thing on and went to double click, but did it on the template since it blends in with the picture.
Curiouscrab (talk | contribs) 01:04, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

That's okay! :) If it ever happens again, just post on my talk page or the Community Portal.
Lucario621 (talk | contribs) 02:26, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

CP Archive

I don't know if this was okay, but curiouscrab created a new archive. Probably should be reverted, or kept the same.
Joletole (talk | contribs) 21:40, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

All Lucario621 needs to do is protect or do whatever and that's all.
Curiouscrab (talk | contribs) 22:43, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
Or he might revert the edit. One of the conversations wasn't done.
Joletole (talk | contribs) 22:45, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
Which one? It can be put on the clean portal and continued, but you might have to put something about it. Maybe there can be a thing where you can put the Yes Done template at the end of each completed conversation and the No Not done template at the end of each incomplete conversation.
Curiouscrab (talk | contribs) 22:49, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
Good idea! I'll bring that up on the CP.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 09:51, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
Archiving of the Community Portal should just be done by the administrators. I appreciate that Curiouscrab wants to help with that, but it's a task that requires a lot of moving and protecting of pages, as well as a good insight for deciding discussions should be kept or archived. Having a normal contributor doing parts of this process is something that can cause confusion and I would like to avoid. So for future reference, I would just like admins to be archiving the Community Portal (although you can still archive your own userpage). :)
Lucario621 (talk | contribs) 03:27, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

incorrect article

I read in an article that the Community Portal is open to unregistered users to use. When I logged off and tried to see if it was true, it turned to be false. I believe it was actually something in the first or second CP (I was bored and began reading that) when I saw that. Should something be put about stuff in the archives are not always reliable in the archive header template?
Curiouscrab (talk | contribs) 23:21, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

I don't think that's necessary. It's kind of assumed that since the discussion is outdated, the circumstances may have changed. The idea of having the Community Portal open to unregistered users was just an early idea, but it was dropped because of various issues that arose.
Lucario621 (talk | contribs) 02:35, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
I was thinking that, but you never know. The Interwiki article may be outdated, but is kept out anyway. ;)
Curiouscrab (talk | contribs) 02:37, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
Checking Special:Version, there is an extension called EditSubpages: Allows sysops to unlock a page and all subpages of that page for anonymous editing via MediaWiki:Unlockedpages. The community portal is listed, but we can't edit logged out.

Question

About your deletion of the template SigMiss: why delete it? I just want a more thourough reason. Thanks.
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 03:08, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

I think the template could easily scare new users. I've seen a lot of users mess up with their signature in the past, and although having a template to use might be convenient, it could be quite intimidating - especially with the warning icon on it. :P Just fixing the user's signature and/or telling them that they made a mistake (if they're new) is usually a better option. :)
