< Scratch Wiki talk:April Fools

Userpages appearing in the contents box

 Unresolved (see all...)

In the contents box, which also appears on Scratch Wiki:April Fools, mentions templates and userpages as well, and are outside of mainspace, which probably most Wiki traffic goes to. Would it be possible for the Contents page on the joke version of the Scratch Wiki main page to only show mainspace pages, or would that require making a MediaWiki extension (although making an extension to make that happen might not be worth it as it would be only used there mainly)?

Limit the number of joke news articles

 Unresolved (see all...)

A lot of the edits to this page are adding joke news to the respective section of this page. I think too many are being added an that the category should reduced to a few and no more can be added without consensus.

I agree. Most joke news gets pushed down way before AF, so it won't even be seen. Maybe no more than 5, since that's how many news articles there are on the real front page.

Well, maybe we can disallow editing the news section to certain users. But removing the news section completely isn't a good idea whatsoever.

It is getting long, but I don't think it's a good idea to stop adding new jokes. If it has to be kept short, maybe it should be "burned down by Kaj" or "eaten by an Evil Kumquat" every couple of months.

This is a rather good idea!

I think we should limit it to what actually fits on the screen, since virtually nobody is going to scroll down on that. I also think we should give priority to new content that has not yet appeared for April Fools day and start with removing what already appeared in 2021.

Should I add them back for the time being? I feel like a plan should've been made first, as there's no official rules on it right now.

I removed a lot of the news articles a while ago (before I became an EW) in case it made the page too large or bloated. I am fine with the current number of news articles.

That was a good temporary fix, but there's currently no rules stopping people from adding more. Personally, I don't think there should be, but most people disagree, so they should probably be made.
