This Scratch Wiki page is about wiki users. For Scratch users, see Scratcher.

Wiki users (also called contributors) are approved users that have the power to create and edit the Scratch Wiki. Users can also log-in to the Scratch Wiki, and have their own wiki user page. To become a wiki user, this form must be filled out. A list of user groups and members in each one is found here. All users must follow the normal Scratch Rules.

Rights

The user group is given instantly after an account is confirmed (see Scratch Wiki:Become a contributor). This group has more rights compared to the user group (all) which is a default user group. A comparison of the user group this group has and all the other groups can be found here.

  • Edit pages (unless protected)
  • Create pages
  • Comment on other user's talk page
  • Use templates
  • Create links
  • Use the block plugin

  • Move pages (unless protected)
  • Revert one edit

Users cannot, however:

  • Protect/unprotect pages
  • Delete pages/edits
  • Edit protected pages
  • Review account requests
  • Ban users
  • Change user groups
  • Edit the home page
