Wiki Wednesday is a Scratch News series run by the Scratch Team with suggestions from wiki editors, and is used to feature an article from the Scratch Wiki on the last Wednesday of every month in different languages. Each of the updates are posted on the Scratch News tab, and the Announcements forum. When an article is featured, editing on the article is protected from regular users to prevent spam and vandalism.
Choosing an Article
Historically (before September 2017)
About a week before the last Wednesday of the month, an administrator from each wiki made a post in their wiki's Community Portal asking for Wiki Wednesday article suggestions. It is suggested that these articles have good content, have images, and follow wiki standards.
Wiki editors then proposed and discussed article suggestions.
One to two days before the last Wednesday of the month, the article suggestions of a wiki would be considered by the wiki's administrators and optionally LiFaytheGoblin. The article that was viewed as the best would be sent to the Scratch Team for approval. If it is accepted, the article would be featured in Wiki Wednesday. Otherwise, the wiki would have to suggest another article.
Historically (before January 2018)
Wiki editors could suggest articles on Scratch Wiki:Wiki Wednesday Suggestions at any time. It is still suggested that these articles have good content, at least some images, and follow wiki guidelines.
Any wiki editor could also comment on the discussions for other articles, and discuss the merits of featuring the article.
One to two days before the last Wednesday of the month, the article suggestions on Scratch Wiki:Wiki Wednesday Suggestions would be considered by the admins, who would pick an article and send it to the Scratch Team. The article would then be sent to the rest of the team for approval. If it was accepted, the article would appear on the Wiki Wednesday forum post. Otherwise, the admins would choose another article.
Currently (after January 2018)
Any Scratch user can suggest an article on the forum topic at any time. The guidelines for suggested articles remain the same: they should have good content, some images, and follow wiki guidelines.
Any Scratch user can also discuss other suggested articles and the merits of featuring them.
A few days before the last Wednesday of the month, the article suggestions on the forum topic will be considered by the admins, who will pick an article and send it to the Scratch Team & MakeTheBrainHappy. The article will then be sent around to the rest of the team for approval. If it is accepted, the article will appear on the Wiki Wednesday forum post. Otherwise, the admins will have to choose another article.
If any Wikian has any recommendations for the format of the posts, then they should send their suggestions to MakeTheBrainHappy, who helps the Scratch Team develop the final post.
