Unfinished discussions

about the order of S.A, E.L and Refs

over at User_talk:AonymousGuy#Thanks, we had a quick discussion on the order of the See also, External link and References sections, and I just wanted to bring it up on the CP for further discussion. The possibilities are:

order 1
  1. S.A
  2. E.L
  3. Refs
order 2
  1. E.L
  2. S.A
  3. Refs
order 3
  1. S.A
  2. Refs
  3. E.L
order 4
  1. E.L
  2. Refs
  3. S.A
order 5
  1. Refs
  2. S.A
  3. E.L
order 6
  1. Refs
  2. E.L
  3. S.A

I think that the References should be at the bottom. :)
Derpmeup (talk | contribs) 00:03, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
Me too, on other wikis, references are always at the bottom.However, there was a very very old discussion before stating that the order is always order 3,
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 00:04, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
It's not always order 3, I normally see it in different ways. ;)
Derpmeup (talk | contribs) 00:05, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
I feel bad because my bot has been correcting it to order 1 the whole time ;) but yeah that is true sometimes I see it as order 3 and order 1 and order 6 sometimes too ;O
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 00:16, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
I personally think order 2 would make the most sense on this wiki; first important links, than somewhat related pages, than sources of information.
Mathfreak231 (talk | contribs) 00:20, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I agree with that. :)
Derpmeup (talk | contribs) 00:22, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
Yes I like #2. And before someone brings it up, no, we don't need a bot to change this stuff.
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 02:07, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 18:39, 23 June 2014 (UTC)
I think that I like 1 or 5 the most.
Anyway, since we vary a bit in our answers, maybe we could have a vote on the order?
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 15:23, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
ok. I'll use most wins! I say 1 and 2, ErnieParke says 1 and 5, Scimonster says 1 and 2 and 5, Turkey3 says 2, MathFreak231 says 2, Derpmeup says 2. Any corrections/more to add?
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 18:34, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Custom welcome messages are messing up the format even more

See User talk:ScratchGameing for an example. Anybody know how to fix that?
jvvg (talk | contribs) 01:30, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Is it now considered fixed?
Swampert11 (talk | contribs) 01:35, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
It's only fixed on that one page. There needs to be a formatting change to the message that fixes it everywhere. I will try one now.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 01:36, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
There, check out User talk:Scillog for the new message with the header.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 01:12, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
If the indentation between the edit box and the signature was the same and that big space between the box and the signature was decreased, i think that would be better

WikiMonitor and New Wikians

However many times WikiMonitor tells new users to categorize file pages, most do not heed the bot's notifications and continue doing their own things. Does anyone know why people aren't looking at those notifications?
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 03:07, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Another option are people that don't know about their talk page. But since a change to their talk page yields a conspicuous notification that their talk page has been changed, I then conclude that some people deliberately not read things on their talk page. I may be wrong, though. I have brought up this conversation with jvvg, and will be divulged as soon as the discussion is deemed important to the community.
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 04:53, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
True, they seem to ignore WikiMonitor notifications, but oh well, what we can do? It's almost like an "I got my eye on you" situation where WikiMonitor is looking at the user but the user senses Wikimonitor's presence but will not look back (aka respond back).
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 18:32, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
Maybe we should remove the blue box from the WM messages.
Swampert11 (talk | contribs) 18:57, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
That wouldn't accomplish anything, I don't think.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 18:57, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
Why would we remove it? Where did Turkey3's box originally come from? I am open to changes though. Keep in mind to tell me, and not Jvvg.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 19:02, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
? The blue box came from Turkey3's imagination lol
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 19:04, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Yes, Krett12 is operating WM until mid-August. I will still be around and active through this weekend, and may be able to check in every few days while I'm gone, but I will be on a tablet and will have limited time.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 19:06, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

wow mid August, ohh I get it now nvm ;) red is too scary but attracts more attention ;)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 19:09, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
Well, the whole discussion earlier was about how to make bot messages friendlier. However, it seems that since they are now "friendlier", everybody is ignoring them. You can't have your cake and eat it too (I never understood that expression), and in this case we might have to decide between messages being intimidating and users actually following them or the messages being more friendly and users just completely ignoring them. I also think not letting users remove them helped, as people wouldn't want them on their talk page. However, since I changed the mechanism for checking for duplicate messages, users can just delete them and pretend they never got them.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 19:13, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
I am going to change it to red, if that's what needs to be done. WM is already supposed to leave a message on my talk page. Should we revert to the harsher ones?
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 19:16, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
I think the problem is just people aren't reading it not deleting it ;) if you delete it it means you read it (if you didn't read it how would you know it's not a bot notification, etc.)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 19:17, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
@Krett12: Well, let's not do that immediately. Let's make sure we're all ok with it first. Also, btw, you'll need to restart the program for online config changes to take effect (local config changes should take effect immediately). To stop it, press Ctrl+C (still use control, whether on a Mac or Windows).
jvvg (talk | contribs) 19:18, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Yeah, now that I think about it, deleting it isn't the problem. The "DO NOT DELETE THIS MESSAGE" part is a little unnecessary. However, the red border may attract more attention. Just remember that this is at the expense of intimidating new users.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 19:20, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

I am okay with the red border.
Swampert11 (talk | contribs) 19:39, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
Yep, the red border will be better.
JayceeMinecraftlogo.png JayceeMinecraft user | talk | contributions 19:43, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
Maybe there could be different messages for different levels of experience. Or it could search via page contents, not history, so if you delete the message, it'll just post another, BTW, I will restart Tweaker.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 20:21, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
It used to use contents, but I got a lot of complaints that users couldn't delete messages. I also think that detecting levels of experience would be a huge pain, and having the same message for everybody would work better.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 20:31, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
maybe do like they do on Wikipedia with different levels of reminders depending on how much you have neglected the rules?
Mathfreak231 (talk | contribs) 22:50, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
Do you honestly think changing a box (a very beautiful one :P ) to red will fix this entire issue? I think the true reason new people don't notice the messages is that a talk page looks exactly like an article in structure.
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 23:13, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── To see the new message in action, it's on my talk page.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 00:17, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

It does stand out! At least we didn't have to turn to something like a flashing arrow.
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 00:19, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
or blinking text (which only some people can see because it is OBSOLETE! yay thank you!!!)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 00:44, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
Or a flashing, BLINKING arrow.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 15:55, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
That's just going to hurt peoples' eyes. Keep it with the red border, but don't add more.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 17:01, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 18:37, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Is there a way...

To detect if someone is editing a page as opposed to viewing it, using some magic words I would suppose, to change a few page contents accordingly? (I only need it for personal user page use)
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 01:52, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

There's no magic word that will tell if someone is viewing/editing a page :(
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 02:00, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
There has never been any way on the whole Wiki system to do that. Sorry. :( To do that, we would have to be working for Wikipedia or something :(

I think your custom signature is a bit long. After relaxing the rule that says your signature cannot be ~275px long, I implemented a new rule, the 8 colon test. Basically, it is demonstrated in the Sandbox. The rule is stated here. Is it possible that you shrink your signature down? After all, it is a custom signature :)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 03:51, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
Basically, it prevents signatures that will break and ruin talk format when using big indentations. However, I have posted on the CP about this. thanks!
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 03:56, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

custom signatures

Which rule is better at Scratch Wiki:Custom Signatures#Creating custom signatures?

1.Signature cannot be wider than 275 pixels or higher than 25 pixels. To test, go to the sandbox and place your signature (excluding timestamp) between the tags:
<div style="background-color:silver; width:275px; height:28px; overflow:auto;">sig here</div>
If scrolling arrows show up, your signature is too big.

2.Signature cannot be very long. To test, do the eight colon test. Go to the sandbox and place your signature, with timestamp, after eight colons (:). If your custom signature breaks lines, it is too long.
And please tell me what to change in the rule you pick ;)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 03:55, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

I agree with rule 2.
Swampert11 (talk | contribs) 03:57, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
I just made a new Common.css rule! You can now use <div class="sig-test">sig here</div> to test your sig for rule #1!
See it in action.

If you want to get yours, put this code at the bottom of your userpage:

[[User:Krett12/Firework|Krett12 will send me a firework!]]

BTW, I will remove that tag when I send it to you, be aware that putting it there is like handing me a key to your userspace.

I will use What Links Here and give you yours.

That's usually what people do.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 18:09, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

We Must Decide......

....We already had a discussion about this a little while ago, but I'm going to rewrite it.

We were talking about making friendlier versions of the messages, and they were still getting the point across, and still being quite nice.

However, it seemed that with the new and improved, "friendlier" messages, users do not even follow their instruction, as if it were not important at all, "I'm not gonna let one little Tweaker warning ruin my day!". And some users may even remove the messages from their talk page, and pretending they never got them.

So, we must decide.

Do we want messages that users follow, but run the risk of sounding like you are in trouble

OR

Do we want friendly messages, that users might ignore

I have already changed the blue box to red, human eyes just scientifically do not miss that color."

However, until we get more replies, I am going to change the messages back to the original, sharp ones.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 13:57, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

I agree with the first one.
Swampert11 (talk | contribs) 14:51, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
I think friendly messages are easier to follow. A while ago I brought up how Wikipedia does it; they have different levels of warnings based on how much you violate the rules or stuff. IDK how tough that'd be to program based on how WM/Tw does it.
Mathfreak231 (talk | contribs) 15:01, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
I think your bot should store an multi-dimensional array of users and which messages they have already received. If a specific user has received the same message once, THEN send the more scary message, but the first time only send the friendly one.
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 18:06, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
It could be something like
$userStatus = [["turkey3", 0, 0, 1, 2], ["jvvg", 0, 1, 3, 0], ["Mathfreak", 2, 2, 0, 0]];
So basically the array starts with the user's name, then afterwards are how many times it has received a specific message.

Time 2 : Regular messages

Time 3 : Extended messages with links to previous ones and slightly more sharp language

Time 4 : It will threaten to warn a bureaucrat about the behavior

Time 5 : It will warn Scmb1 on the main site (I'll have to get her consent)

Time 6 : A request will be mailed to request that their account be blocked for a few days.

Time 7 : The bureaucrats will have to deal with the issue, it is now beyond bot capabilities.


Seem good to everyone? It so, I'll let Scmb1 in on it.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 23:52, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Banning somebody for not categorizing pages, no matter how frequent it is, is completely outrageous. If this were implemented, I would be blocked and you wouldn't have your favorite admin. Also, this would put a lot of strain on scmb1, who I think already has enough on her plate (I believe she is a student at MIT, which is a lot of work). You should also go by time. Instead of just doing the first/second/third/etc. time ever, you should work by however many messages the user got in the past month or something of that nature. I have forgotten to categorize well over 7 pages, but I shouldn't be blocked for it.

That message above will be my last message here for a long time. Tomorrow, bright and early, I leave for my vacation. I will return in August, but until then I will only be able to check very intermittently. It was very nice taking part in administrating the Wiki while I was here, and I look forward to resuming my duties when I return. We really do have a very awesome community on this Wiki. We have very few disputes and are able to resolve issues pretty quickly and nobody seems too upset about those decisions. Although this may seem simple, it's rare that a group of people can get together and work like that, especially for an extended period of time like we do here. We're all very lucky to have each other to rely on to keep things working, and I will miss you all while I am gone. I trust that everything will still run smoothly while I am gone (Scimonster and Mathfreak231 are pretty good guys too ;)), and now I say goodbye.

User talk page standards

I think we need to have a standard format for talk pages, as many users have talk pages that use colors that make it near-impossible to read, spacing that ruins formatting, etc. So, I propose these rules:

  • The text alignment must remain to the left
  • The font color, size, etc. must remain at the default setting
  • The background color must remain white
  • The contents may not be hidden in any way (like those collapse boxes or whatever)
  • New messages must be added as L2 (==) headers


jvvg (talk | contribs) 14:35, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Support.
Swampert11 (talk | contribs) 14:52, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
Yes we indeed need this. However, maybe the background shouldn't always have to be white? Maybe there should be standards on the saturation and brightness scales?
Mathfreak231 (talk | contribs)15:03, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
Requiring the background to be white makes sure that the format is consistent with the rest of the Wiki and that nobody has trouble reading it. In addition, it's much easier to enforce a simple rule than a complicated one.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:09, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
If this extends to user talk pages, then I don't support. That would hurt my talk page, especially the larger font that I have. Normally I do have my glasses, but now that they're broken, the larger font is helping my eyes. I also agree with Mathfreak231. If you implement a regulation on background color, I'd like to see a less stringent rule.
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 22:36, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
darn. although I do agree with consistency, there is a very slight difference from a page with white background and one with another color background (which is light and is not close to black!) although i do know someone who has an unlegible talk page.

Do we really need to put our ranks in sigs?

A few people have put "Autoconfirmed" in their signature. It's worth pointing out that we are all autoconfirmed. Ranks usually only matter when it comes to deleting and stuff. For the most part, we all treat each other pretty equally. Putting ranks in signatures does not really help that.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 14:57, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

I don't even know what my rank is. I don't think we need to show off what level we are. Let's act professional. Jvvg and Mathfreak don't have "Admin" in their signatures. They are the ones who should be showing off.

Once EWs and admins start putting it in, it will be showing off. Also, as evidenced by the discussion on your talk page, users don't always know they are autoconfirmed, so they might get jealous.

ON help:references

When there is text that should be referenced, but a reference cannot be found, add {{citation needed}} in the place where the reference would go. This lets viewers know that this fact is unreferenced, and may not be accurate. When at least three of these notes are on a page, you should also put {{inaccurate}} at the top of the page.

That's a lot of pages that need to be inaccuratified, should we keep that rule and persue it or delete it altogether? :0
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 18:10, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

I think we should keep that rule.
Swampert11 (talk | contribs) 18:19, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

I just looked at pages that linked to that template :) and I don't think that adding the template to pages should be that important that a bot should do it! :)
coding-wise, adding citations will be an insanely hard bot to program, as it would include parsing English ideas :[
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 19:55, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Anyway, I didn't say that a bot could be adding citations, but that they could add the {Inaccurate} template. I thought that there were a few articles in the Scratch Wiki that needed the inaccurate template, but that haven't gotten one yet. I haven't noticed any, so maybe a bot doesn't need to do it after all.
I also looked at the pages linked to the template, as well as Category:Inaccurate Articles, but I still can't find any pages that don't have {{cn}} tags. Could you point me to one?

Ambiguous Vs Disambiguous

How come we have pages like Objects (disambiguation) and Mod (disambiguation) when "disambiguation" is not even a word? Ambiguous is a word, so why can do we not use that? The definition of ambiguous is "unclear or in exact because a choice between alternatives has not been made". Doesn't that sound more like the correct word? Furthermore, adding "dis" would make it the opposite, meaning "clear and in exact choice with no alternatives".
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 02:14, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

As Wiktionary says, the word means "the removal of ambiguity". Ergo, it is making the term not ambiguous by explaining different uses.

Nice catches! I thought that I had accidentally deleted File:S2exe.jpg... Anyway, that's another image that might be left for historical purposes. File:ToolBar.PNG on the other hand doesn't look useful. So delete.

Thank you -PRO- for bringing this up! That was helpful of you! (And sorry about not putting this into my last post...)

Unused Categories

There are a few Unused categories, if you don't need them then I won't touch them, but if you want to keep them, I will make use of them.

They're fine as they are.

Yes Done

Straight Line

How do you create that straight up and down line? I have always used copy and paste but it would be nice just to use my keyboard. Does someone know how to?

Unless it's on your keyboard (usually right side) you'll have to copy paste or use an on-screen keyboard.

On a standard American keyboard, hold down shift while you press the key above the enter key. Looks like this : |

Found it! I have to hold shift while I press the button above my enter key. Thanks!

You're welcome. Also, the colon and the bar together look like the emoticon :)

Cool.

Tweaker/WikiMonitor (Mass Amount of Edits)

How are we only allowed to make 7 edits in an hour? That is 1 edit every 8 and a half minutes! I have made more edits that that and never got notified. What is with that?
-PRO- (talk | contribs) 23:46, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

I think you get notified if you make 7 edits in a hour on the same page.

Oh.

Swampie is correct. And it also skips talk pages, the Sandbox, and the Not Requests.

Article About Templates?

Yes Done! This is not needed!
We probably should have a Wiki article about templates on the wiki. It would make more sense to new Wiki members.
Mariobros406 (talk | contribs) Talk to me here! 17:06, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

We already have one.

So, the final decision is we do not need the template.
Swampert11 (talk | contribs) 20:12, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Yup. Adding.

TOC/FORCETOC

For me _TOC_ and _FORCETOC_ never work, how do I fix it?
JayceeMinecraftlogo.png JayceeMinecraft user | talk | contributions 13:01, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

It's __TOC__ and __FORCETOC__.
