< Scratch Wiki:Elections

The first Scratch Wiki election occurred from September 12-18, 2013. Mathfreak231 was elected to the administrator position, and Hardmath123 and ErnieParke became Experienced Wikians. jvvg, who tied with Hardmath123 in the election, kept his position as an EW.


The candidates listed here were nominated in the original Community Portal discussion. Please do not add anybody else.

  • blob8108 — I made the new Scratchblocks and Scratchsig, helped transition the articles to 2.0, and generally try to improve things.
I've been thinking: once holidays end, I won't have much time at all, so I've decided to withdraw. It won't affect the voting; the order should stay the same. Sorry, everyone!
  • ErnieParke — I have helped update the Wiki to Scratch 2.0, and I am knowledgable in the Wiki and formatting. For example, I have practically created all of the Table_of_Contents/Front_Page article as it is now, and I also like turning stub articles into their full size. I also am the top contributor of the month right now, though other then that, go Scratch Wiki!
  • Hardmath123 — I've been on Scratch for 4 years now and have spent over half that time on the Wiki—so I know a lot about Scratch culture and Scratch history (I was there for most of it!). I started the series of CS articles on the Wiki, and I program parts of Berkeley Snap!. Most people consider me responsible (in fact, I was nominated for admin by scimonster a while ago; I was also a curator which shows that the Scratch Team trusts me). I am particularly obsessive about quality, grammar, etc., and I am extremely active (I have edited far more than most admins). I want to be an admin to give back to the Scratch community.
  • jvvg — I programmed the account registration system on the Wiki, am the one responsible for reviewing most of the account requests, I mostly try to fix grammar mistakes and wrong information, but I also contribute new information periodically and try to update articles for 2.0.
  • Mathfreak231 — I love the wiki. I really do. I've been on for quite a while now, almost a year, and have made almost 3,000 edits. I know what is OK and what isn't OK for the most part, and I have tons of Wiki formatting memorized. I have contributed to some really big discussions. I am really good at cleaning up pages that don't fit S:GUIDES, especially grammar and sounding professional. I've been top contributor of the month quite a few times, and I have a nice sense of wiki humor. Overall, I spend 70% of my free time on the wiki, look at almost as many account requests as jvvg, and would love being one of the administrators. I could help by keeping the Community Portal under control size-wise, do some stuff that people brought up a long time ago but never got around to doing, and keeping everybody in line. I haven't made any major programming breakthroughs, but I still feel like I could use the tools for good.
  • Turkey3 — I always try and help others, and live by helping others before myself, which I think impacts why I can be trusted with the responsibilities of an Admin/EW. On this wiki, I am very active (and on Scratch) and have contributed very much to the block pages in the TOC, and upgraded most of them to Scratch 2.0, as well as changed much TOC coding. Also, I create many tutorials, in particular string tutorials, and recreated the Paint Editor article for Scratch 2.0
