How to edit on the Scratch Wiki

We recommend that before you create your question, you read these tips to editing on the Scratch Wiki.

  • Sign your posts with four tildes (~~~~) after your post.
  • To do various text formatting, follow the following rules, rather than using any other text-editing methods:
    • Make text bold with '''text'''.
    • Make text italics with ''text''.
    • Make text bold and italics with '''''text'''''.
    • Make a link to a page outside of this wiki with [http://www.example.com link text] or {{plain link|1=http://www.example.com|2=link text}} if you don't want the Link icon.png symbol to appear (remember http:// prefix).
    • Make a link to an article on this wiki with [[Page name]] or [[Page name|Link text]].
    • Make a link to a Wikipedia article with [[Wikipedia:Page name]] or [[Wikipedia:Page name|Link text]].
    • Indent a paragraph by putting a colon (:) before it.
    • For more, see the help page on formatting.
  • Put new text under old text.
  • Always remember to be polite and respectful, assume good faith, and be welcoming, while following the Scratch Community Guidelines.
  • When creating a new post, mark it as No Not done by putting {{not done}} at the top. Once the conversation has been resolved, replace it with {{done}} (producing Yes Done).

New page for intro/outro

I think this is a big thing right know so should we have a main space article about intros/outros on one page or on two pages? Also will anyone help we write it?

It should be a single article called "Intros and Outros." "Intro" and "Outro" should redirect to it.
Millie S.jpeg Millie S (talk|934 contribs|directory) 17:08, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
I think a single article, to which the searches "Intro" and "Outro" direct to, would be good. It would be useful to Scratchers who don't know what they are and might try to search for one or the other but want to know about both.

English Scratch Club

No Not done

The Scratch club is a weekly meeting among a group of Scratchers which are contributing actively to the Scratch Wiki and to Scratch in general. The meetings are used to discuss important issues, most notable was the discussion if the transition of the english Wiki should take place. Currently, the weekly meetings are held in German, but we used to have an international Scratch club following after the German one. An alternative could be to make it alternating every week between German and English. As a start, who of the English and international Wiki administrators would be interested in it and able to join? And what would be better: weekly every Monday at 9:00 PM CET or bi-weekly at 8:00 PM? Once I get a tendency about the if and when, I will bring it up at the next German Scratch club, perhaps already next Monday.

I would definitely like to join, but neither 8 or 9 PM CET work for me - I'm in Hong Kong, and 8PM CET is 3AM HKT... Best would be on weekends, since everyone's time is likely to be more flexible - on weekdays, we have work and school, but on weekends times that would normally be during work/school are usually ok. Would 2PM CET on Saturdays (or Sundays) be workable?

I know this has been inactive for a very long time.
Neither 8 or 9 PM CET work for me either, as they are 12 and 1 PM, which is in the middle of the school day, and I am busy on the weekends at that time. How about an "always open" meeting where you can post anytime?

Not Done

No Not done

I know someone already brought it up...
Anyways, Not Done is not getting any attention. I know that Kenny2scratch already added “Things To Do” on the left sidebar, and the TOC of Not Done, yet no one seems to notice it. I think that we should release an announcement to all existing editors about ND, and all incoming users about ND on their welcome page. In fact, I’m going to add that to my welcome right now.
Any thoughts?

Support better way to mark not done. Should the TOC on the CP mark out all the not done discussions in a different text color, or something like that? One idea
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 03:45, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Perhaps make all of the Not Done topics have bold titles? That should attract attention to them for those who browse the TOC.
Kenny2scratch logo.jpg kenny2scratch  Talk  Contribs  Directory 
03:47, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Maybe what we could do is put the Not Done Topics in Red in the TOC of the CP, the done topics Green in the TOC of the CP, and the in progress discussions the blue color it currently is.
NYCDOT Logo.jpg NYCDOT [ Talk Page | Contributions | Directory ] 12:47, 24 June 2018 (UTC)
I agree with KrIsMa, Kenny2scratch, and NYCDOT on having some way to show which topics are done and which are not done, but how would we make topics show as a different color in the table of contents?

Suggestion: Scratch Wiki:Featured Image Suggestions

It's as it says on the tin.

As part of this new revival of featured images (and leading on from #An Interval for Featured Images, I propose that we create a page similar in concept to S:WWS, where users leave new section saying which image they think deserve to be featured. This will clean up the CP (just slightly). At around the same time as Wiki Wednesday, the EWs/Bureaucrats review the suggestions and pick three images which will then to onto S:FI. If necessary, we could also edit the current Wiki Wednesday suggestion forum post to incorporate Featured Images too.

What do you think?

border=3px Drunken Sailor [ Talk | Contribs | More... ] 18:26, 4 August 2018 (UTC)
I think the featured images are too minor to have a dedicated projectspace page. I propose instead to have a miscellaneous "homepage tasks" page (or something like that) where you can suggest news items, featured images, and edits to other things that appear on the homepage. Does that sound better?
Kenny2scratch logo.jpg kenny2scratch  Talk  Contribs  Directory 
19:51, 4 August 2018 (UTC)

Logoasqwde.png asqwde talk | contribs 21:46, 4 August 2018 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── @Ken won't a homepage tasks page just get cluttered up? If they had to filter through edits and news items to find featured images, wouldn't it be harder for the admins? Also, having a dedicated project space is better because it's a) more obvious to Wiki Editors what the page is for, and seems less boring and gruelling than "homepage tasks", which sounds like just a big long list of stuff to do. And b) it would be easier for editors to suggest, because having a clearer Featured Image Suggestions would be more obvious to others what has already been suggested and what hasn't, et cetera. And c) having a dedicated page would make it so much easier to implement into the current WW forum post.
border=3px Drunken Sailor [ Talk | Contribs | More... ] 08:49, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

We could have Scratch Wiki:Homepage Tasks and have there be a section for featured images, news things, and any other sections that may be needed. Then it wouldn't be as messy (if there were sections). Then we could make a shortcut called S:FEATUREDIMAGESUGGESTIONS (although that's a pretty long "shortcut") and have it redirect to Scratch Wiki:Homepage Tasks#Featured Image Suggestions. Or we could have Scratch Wiki:Featured Image Suggestions redirect to Scratch Wiki:Homepage Tasks#Featured Image Suggestions. :)
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk | contribs 15:32, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
If we're talking about shortcuts, how about S:FIS, since S:FI redirects to the featured images?
border=3px Drunken Sailor [ Talk | Contribs | More... ] 08:44, 6 August 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, that'd probably be good. :)

Server Capacity

About two weeks ago, I could not access scratch-wiki.info for 24 hours. My internet connection was fine; the website just took too long to respond.

Today, when trying to view /Archive 66, I got a 503 Service Unavailable error. I reloaded the page and it worked. However, page load times are still a bit long. Occasionally, after about 50 page loads, the page load times start to get really long, up to ten seconds.

Does MartinWollenweber's server have enough capacity?
CrazyBoy826-Icon.png CrazyBoy826 Talk | Contribs | Scratch account 16:44, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

I think yes :-), but keep watching, if there are such kind of problems more often, I have to talk to our provider. It could help to create a list of such ocurannces to analyse it better.

Add Siggy Warner to MediaWiki:Common.js

So for those who don't know what Siggy Warner is, it's basically a JavaScript thing that pops up a confirmation box when you forget to sign, as well as adding a notice to previews when you don't sign. You can still deliberately omit the signature by either checking the "minor edit" box or typing "CONFIRM" when prompted.

Since forgetting to sign your post is one of the most common mistakes, I propose that instead of people opting into using my siggy warner, we add it to MediaWiki:Common.js as something that is loaded for all users. I think my siggy warner has reached a development status where it's ready to be included for everyone.

Potentially there could be a way to opt out of it, too - maybe by loading a user JS file that counteracts the effects of Siggy Warner.

What do you think about adding Siggy Warner to common.js?

border=3px Drunken Sailor [ Talk | Contribs | More... ] 15:07, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
@D_S: You are too late to say so - ScratchWikiSkin2 and Report Extension are user-generated. (you called Ken's Siggy Warner "user-generated", so these are also "user-generated".) Do you have any other reason?
Logo of Apple502j.jpg Apple502j Talk/Activities 1,905edit 13:45, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
Plenty of things that the Wiki itself relies on started off as user-generated things. This would be no exception. As apple rightfully points out, SWS2 and the Report extension are technically user-generated, as are WikiMonitor, TemplatesFTW, and other major parts. The only difference is that the "major" parts have been approved by the community to be a part of the Wiki itself and no longer counted as user-generated. By posting this, I am requesting that the community decide whether this should be moved into the main codebase and no longer simply a user-created script.

Jakel181 (talk | contribs) 16:10, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
(this indentation indicates a reply to @D_S) jvvg also noticed that I'm slowly integrating more WM functions into the core. He's fine with it, though, since it would be less for him to maintain. Actually, WM doesn't need to check file categories anymore, either - an abuse filter prevents file uploads without categories. But WM isn't anywhere near out of a job yet - it has curator updating and rapid edit detection, neither of which we can do regularly.
(this indentation indicates a reply to @asqwde) Why do you not support this, though?

New page for mall simulators

No Not done

Should we make a new page for mall simulators? Mall simulators are sort of big with the biggest mall simulator (Palace of Points) having more than 1400 members. Should we create a page for it?
Sti_scratch (talk | contribs) 04:55, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

Maybe not as a whole page, but as a section in Simulation Projects?
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk | contribs 16:11, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
Mall simulators, let me explain, are studios where people can register and make projects and add them to the studio. These projects are shops, where people (that are registered in a mall simulator the shop is added in) can buy from. Mall simulators invent their own currency, not tradeable for real money, that is used within the mall simulator itself. So, I don't really think it would fit there since it's technically not a project.
Sti_scratch (talk | contribs) 08:54, 23 November 2018 (UTC)
That's a new kind of shop. Actually, there is no article to write about it, I think.
Logo of Apple502j.jpg Apple502j Talk/Activities 1,905edit 12:56, 23 November 2018 (UTC)

There are many more people on this wiki who deserve these comments just as much as those who received them. :) Everyone is special and brings there own ideas. The more of us there are, the better the community spirit. Sadly, I must sign off now-

Bot Shortcut for GA Stats

GA stats should have a a shortcut. Like B:IWB/GA?
Logo of Apple502j.jpg Apple502j Talk/Activities 1,905edit 02:54, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Actually, I think it should be a main shortcut like S:GA -> User:InterwikiBot/GA_Stats

Assets Page

Hi everyone! On the Community Portal on the forums, there has been a request for a page about assets on the wiki. I just want to get your opinion on whether it'd be worthwhile writing an article on it?
Redglitter Profile Picture.gif Redglitter (Talk ~ Contributions ~ 421 edits ~ Profile) 20:39, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Pretty good idea. :ok_hand:
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,172)) 08:20, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
I asked them, on the topic, for more clarification on the idea before we start making it.

3.0 Release: 2.0 "Archiving"

Hi everyone, just wanted to say - Scratch 3 gets released very soon, so that means that we need to make sure everything about 2.0 has been "archived" on the wiki. Are there any pages that need more info to do with 2.0? (e.g images?) Because after about a month, there won't be a chance to screenshot parts of the website etc.

EDIT: We'll also need to start a page on the development of Scratch 3.0 before the chance to screenshot parts of the beta is gone.
Redglitter Profile Picture.gif Redglitter (Talk ~ Contributions ~ 421 edits ~ Profile) 16:08, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

I agree, we should have a 2.0 archive in some shape or form. Though we can still get most 2.0 editor images relatively easily because the offline editor is still available to be downloaded.
Jakel181 (talk | contribs) 22:33, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
Well, Scratch Wiki:3.0 Articles will come into play upon release... I think I'll supervise the transfer of those articles to mainspace while other EWs help out in other areas. (The details will be worked out later.)

If possible, please screenshot all the pages with old navbar. (Like project pages) Credits, Educators and Parents page will also need screenshots. Localized versions are also welcomed.

I've started Scratch Wiki:3.0 Articles/Development of Scratch 3.0. If anyone wants to help, that'd be much appreciated!

@ken Possibly we (or/and your bot) can move articles to articlename (2.0) and add the previous version template to specified pages?
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,172)) 19:31, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── But some articles shouldn't have (2.0) after them... it'll really have to be decided on a case-by-case basis, so that's why I'll be there.

Contributions

So, I was looking at my contributions and I found that many of the contribs I did were on pages with the User: namespace or the User talk: namespace. I feel that this wouldn't show our contributions to the Wiki. Is there any ways to change this? Or is it from the mw software?
12944qwerty Logo.jpg 12944qwerty  Talk  Contribs  Directory  18:08, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

Yes and Yes, :) Select the namespace as "User", then click "Invert selection", and "Associated Namespace" You can view it here. :)
Jakel181 (talk | contribs) 02:25, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
That wasn't what I was completely looking for. I also want it to remove multiple namespaces than just one.
12944qwerty Logo.jpg 12944qwerty  Talk  Contribs  Directory  03:12, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
Not possible on the Special:Contributions page, but the usercontribs API module allows filtering multiple namespaces. This will get you your contributions (up to 500 of them, press the "continue" button to get more) in the (main), Talk, Scratch Wiki, and Scratch Wiki talk namespaces.

Everything you wanted to know about Snap!...

No Not done

but never dared to ask, now it's your chance to directly talk to Brian Harvey, one of the developers of Snap!, from Uni Berkeley at the next Scratch Club. If you are interested in joining the Scratch Club (via Google hangout, you need to be 18+ or have your parent's consent) please contact us here. The next Scratch Club with Brian Harvey as guest will be on Wednesday, December 19, 2018, at 20:00 CET and will be held in English. If you cannot join, you can also post some questions to discuss here.

8pm CET is 3am HKT... I really want to join, but I'm likely not going to be able to. I'll leave questions here.
  • Snap! is too complicated for the age range of the vast majority of Scratchers, but for older ones like myself and many people here it's just right. Do you forsee Snap! being a teaching tool for teens the same way Scratch is for kids?
  • Scratch 3.0 is being released soon, and with it a cleaner and improved user interface design. Do you think an update to Snap! to mimic the new 3.0 design would be a good idea? (Minus the annoying parts of the design, such as the thicker blocks, and with modifications as you may see fit.)
That's all I have for the moment, but I'll definitely post more as I think of them.

QQ: Should I share this opportunity via Twitter?
Here are my questions about Snap:
  • How would you optimize Snap to solve mathematical problems/applications/computer science problems where large data sets are involved?
  • Do demonstrations in Snap help Students understand structures in other programming languages?
