Article: Scratch's Effect on the World

I think we should all team up and work on a major article on how Scratch has affected this world more specifically the world of programming since it's release. We could scavenger hunt the Internet for Scratch mods and someone could design in Photoshop an image of Scratch and all the languages that branch off it, including mods, Snap, and Stencyl even. Then we could add sort of biographies or interviews with people who Scratch has affected greatly in life, and have them in the article. We can find statistics and such things that support how Scratch has helped the world! Like this innovative idea that I came up with after my recent vanishing?

interview me! scratch started my program love!!!! ;) sure i love the idea!
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 03:23, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Wooot! I loved the idea! I saw that Scratch's concept is really inspiring. :These, Stencyl, Tynker, Code.Org, etc used the concept and credited "MIT :Scratch". There's also MIT app inventor, although is also created by MIT, might :have been related to Scratch. I vote yes!
Rumanti (talk | contribs) 11:25, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Scratch actually changed my life. It got me started in programming back when I was in fourth grade, and it taught me the fundamental structures I needed to move on to more complicated languages as time went on.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 11:44, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes, yes. Just make sure it's all well referenced.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 13:03, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
@jvvg same :) we have some great people to interview here!
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 15:29, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
I totally agree with Jvvg. Except I was in 6th grade. This gives me an idea to write a article/speech on how Scratch changed my life! We should all do that!
Everyone write an essay about how Scratch changed their life! Then we can send it to the ST!
-PRO- Logo2.png-PRO- (talk | contribs) 22:23, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
@-PRO-: I've already done that for an English class. ;) (Minus the sending to ST half.)
@Turkey3: That sounds like a really nice idea! It'd have to be well referenced like Sci said above, but it would be lots of fun to have too.
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 23:03, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Awesome! I am glad to see a lot of support! I'll start researching some stuff.
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 23:31, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
do you guys want me to start a page on the wiki where everyone could write a quick essay of their scratch experience, then at the end, we can quote (or just put the whole speech) some parts of the essay into the actual page?
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 00:18, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── also, we should start a page outline, such as testimonials first, then body of text about how it changed the world, then actual speeches.
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 00:20, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

Edit conflicted.
@KrIsMa: I think it would be fun to do, but also a bit biased since the quotes would only be from Wikians.
Anyway, would you mind if I posted a 5 page story about one of my Scratch experiences?
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 00:24, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
yes!
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 00:55, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

speech applications

ok now anyone can add their speeches! after this, we can quote/add speeches into the paragraph! [1] here is how to access the responses, [2] i have also sent a message to the st about if i can sticky the link on the forums. thanks!
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 00:55, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

First post! :P
jvvg (talk | contribs) 00:57, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
2nd lol but ErnieParke said he would make a 5 paged speech so idk if we were the first to start! ;)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 01:09, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
I posted it! Wow, does it take up a lot of space in a google doc.
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 01:18, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
nice! i cant shrink the space lol are you anonymous narwhal? \and your speech is so eloquent! it truly touched me!
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 01:25, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
Me and ErnieParke came up with a plan on Google Docs:

Ernest Parke 6:18 PM Hi Krett! me 6:19 PM Do you own this document? You look like ErnieParke Ernest Parke 6:19 PM No I don't, KrIsMa is. (And I am ErnieParke! ;) )

  • KrIsMa owns the document

me 6:19 PM Who is scratchblockprogramming? Ernest Parke 6:20 PM Wait, Google turns smileys 90 degrees? (I think that's KrIsMa.) me 6:20 PM Hum, okay. Let me get KrIsMa, and maybe we should ask the ST to feature this, hold on a second Ernest Parke 6:20 PM Who do you think the anonymous narwhale and ibex are? me 6:21 PM I see a sheep, no "ibex" over here, maybe the ibex is me :D Ernest Parke 6:21 PM It would be nice if you were the ibex! :D (Good idea about the feature! Although I think an announcement would be better.( me 6:22 PM Nope, it's not on the forums. Maybe, we should use the Contact Us feature on the main site, and then we would, um, post a forum topic about it, ask the Scratch Team to move it to announcements. Ernest Parke 6:22 PM I'm actually a Scratch Mentor, so if this idea gets enough support, I could propose the idea directly to the Scratch Team themselves in the Scratch Mentor forums. me 6:23 PM They are kind of known for going nuts over the smallest things Yeah I know you're a mentor I just didn't think of that But what does the ST check more, their email or the forums? I can't see either. Ernest Parke 6:23 PM But then those small things are important. It's always good to consider everything! As for which they check more... me 6:24 PM I assume you'll leave another message now Sorry to bother you but I am impatient I need to work on that Ernest Parke 6:25 PM I think it'd be best to do a forum post because with an email, only one ST member is likely to see the request, but with the Scratch Mentor forum, a few (including other Scratch Mentors) are bound to see the request. It's okay @Krett12! me 6:25 PM That doesn't work on Google Chat Ernest Parke 6:25 PM I know. I just like to add in the @. me 6:26 PM So maybe we should start a speech on Scratch Wiki namespace So we can all work on it, not just you Then when we are done, you can post it in the special forum.... And maybe I can post the topic maybe? Or, maybe better yet..... Actually, NVM that was a bad idea Alright, I will C&P this chat onto the Wiki


Krett12 (talk | contribs) 01:30, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

oh thanks! can i get the link to the google doc? sorry it might be easier to see there ;)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 01:33, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
@KrIsMa: Nope, I'm not the narwhal, and Krett12 was the ibex. I've already guessed you were Scratchblocksprogramming, which means jvvg was probably the narwhale.
As for the narrative, I find it rusty at places, but I'm still glad that you really liked it! Personally, the mix of fiction and nonfiction is my favorite part of it. :)
@Krett12/Everyone Else: I just want to throw it out there that *if* I post this in the Scratch Mentor forum, I'd like to hear more opinions first.
@KrIsMa new post: The discussion was in your google document.
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 01:35, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
Wiki_Interviews, the Scratch account is MINE! We can use it for our project
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 13:12, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
I was kind of thinking, instead of the google doc, we would do what I explained here
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 13:15, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
And then Wiki_Interviews would post that on the forums and the ST would sticky it and stuff.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 13:16, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
So who wants to do interviewing? Please do it with the Wiki_Interviews account, and not reveal who you are until this is all done. Let me know who I should give the password to.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 13:17, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── wait are we going to do both speech and interview, interview only or speech only? both are just going to be used in the "testimonials" section of the "How scratch changed the world" article. I feel like docs is fine because in interviews, the first question we are going to ask is going to be 'how did scratch change your life', which is covered in the speech already. ;)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 16:06, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

No trust me, we will start out with different questions?
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 16:56, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
I'd still like to use KrIsMa's speech system, but interviews sound nice as well. Maybe we could offer both options for a bit more diversity?
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 20:56, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
hmm, ok maybe both are optional, whichever the applicant wants to do?
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 22:28, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
How about this--the speech is PART OF the interview.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 23:22, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
wouldnt that be repetitive then?
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 23:30, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
Okay, then let's do just the interview.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 23:31, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

speech or interview or both

i believe both have different things to offer, both interview and speech, so let's allow others to respond ;) current question? speech only, interview only, or both?
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 23:34, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

I believe interview only, but definitely not both
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 23:37, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
I completely support :) Well, what project would you make about it...?
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 23:39, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
Project? Like a Scratch Project? An ad? I dunno, we could pass around .sb2s and then share it with Wiki_Interviews, have the ST feature it
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 23:41, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
Maybe, but why would we need a project for this?
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 23:43, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
hmm for interviews theres a character limit which is bad - such as when we ask then how scratch changed their lives they cant answer like how ErnieParke did in the speech. ;)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 23:47, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
They can do multi-comments
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 23:55, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── hmm what about really long speeches? ok let's let other users post about this and im not going to post another post for 1-2 posts to allow people to post ;) however i do love the idea just trying to figure something out ;)v
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 00:09, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

We could make a different google form just for speeches, then have the interview. So yeah, I guess we could do both. BUT, we should say, "go fill out this form", they shouldn't get the link until we've commented on their profile
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 00:37, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
Can't we already use the google doc that KrIsMa has already set up? Also, when/how would we give them the link if not we don't say "go fill out this form"?
Anyway, again, in reply to KrIsMa's (repeated?) question, I'm for both an interview and a speech. A speech is much more flexible, but an interview we could structure.
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 00:46, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
No, we'll start with my interview thing, then after a few questions have them fill that out? And sorry, but yeah let's just use the one by KrIsMa.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) (I only got out three ~s before I accidentally hit save, so no timestamp)
No, no, I'm saying that KrIsMa's form thing has some unnecessary questions.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 14:33, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

interviewing structure

We can do that! We just need to post that in the forums to post a post in wiki interviews. We have to log the comments on a wiki page though and that might be a bit of a hindrance.
I have an idea, some wiki members get the password to the account, then when someone posts in wiki.interviews, only one wiki member interviews the person, whoever posts first. Then thewiki member will log the comments in the wiki somewhere! Fun!
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 18:48, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Yup, that was my idea! Now who should I give the password to? I already have a lot of your emails from when I created your account on the Scratch JR Wiki.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 20:14, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
great nice idea! Can I join? Oh yeah, is it possible if you use my google docs email? Thanks! Oh yeah, want to plan the requited questions we should ask? :)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 21:03, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
The questions will depend on their answers, right?

Anyway, let's find a way to chat with the ST on this, like at a specific time, like, 4:00 Eastern Time tomorrow we all sign on to the chat for the document. I've got school, though, so let's do it on a weekend. How should we communicate? And when should we pitch it to them? The set-up still has a lot of blanks. Should we report something asking them to answer their email maybe?
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 22:02, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

I sent this to the ST:
Hey, this is Scratch Wiki contributor Krett12, sorry for the all caps subject, but I would like to discuss something with you. On the Scratch Wiki, we are discussing creating an article about how Scratch has changed lives, and we want people to interview! So many, many lots of them. Here was our current idea:

1)The user comments on Wiki_Interviews's profile asking "Can I be interviewed? Pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase?????" 2)We take it from there We were wondering something---could you do us a favor? Officially back this and make it "popular"? Like, maybe we make a forum topic, and you guys move it to Announcements? Or something in the Scratch News? Or a featured project? Let me know your opinions. Best regards, Krett12

– What I sent them


Krett12 (talk | contribs) 03:43, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
the contact us is really glacial :( i sent a message 5 days ago and still no response :( anyways i think its still too early - i mean they will ask what our plan is but we still dont know the structure of the interview
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 04:26, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── That email sounds good! But, one question - what forum would you post it in for them to move it to Announcements...?
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 05:46, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Something like the Norwegian forum, I don't want anybody to see our topic before it's been moved.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 13:19, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
This is such a huge thread I will move it to Scratch_Wiki_talk:Interview
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 19:15, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
So, should I remove this thread from here...?
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 19:35, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
Nah, not needed.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 19:38, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
krett12 did you send scratch the email though gmail or by contact us on the website?
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 22:57, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
oh ok then lets start interview structure now and start planning it out (chat might be a bit hard to do, because of timezones etc)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 00:43, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

mandatory questions to be asked

KrIsMa, we have a new page now. The link is above.

What chat is this taking place in? I might want to join in with my G+ - it's my Scratch one, not my personal :)
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 03:58, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
Has there been any reply from the Scratch Team?
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 00:06, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
No :(

Wiki Edit Statistics

I created a box and whisker plot of Wikian's edit levels (for Wikians with over 200 edits), and I thought I might as well share it: http://tinypic.com/m/id50m9/1 On a side note, can someone please reply to me in "Project Tags ;; Thoughts Appreciated"? I still need some thoughts there.
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 23:18, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

I am confused as what it's for?
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 23:54, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
I created the graph for fun, so I thought that I might as well post it. (Although I also posted to give the reminder, because I've had a few previous discussion that stalled, and those never got completed...)
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 00:08, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
i like that top dot at the top (maybe scimonster? lol)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 00:17, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
it is lol
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 01:23, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
I don't get how the graph works. How did I get all the way up there? :p
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 09:59, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
basically it plots all the people over 200 edits in the graph, y axis being edits, and x being the density of people. so if there is 500 people between 200-250 edits, the horizontal bar will be bigger. otherwise, the bar is small, or sometimes shows as a "dot".
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 16:00, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
I'm so tempted to write a program that does this. I haven't been writing anything lately. Here's an example query that lists all users with at least 1 edit and are not bots.
Mathfreak231 (talk | contribs) 15:04, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
I was just going to use scratch to graph lol
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 18:41, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── i pretty much did the same thing but more complicated graph lol i did a plot graph, File:Scratcheditcounter.png, basically, a green dot equals a 500 edit interval, a blue dot representing a user's edits. the range of the graph is 0 to 6000 (sorry scimonster!). you see, lots of people have less than 500 edits :( the mean isn't soo good with all users, but at least our active editors have a good mean :))) (sorry in the graph it says median its supposed to be mean lol)

Upcoming changes to WM

Sometime in the future (hopefully starting this weekend), I will be testing some new features in WM. This includes the following (in order):

  • Better algorithm to detect new posts on talk pages (new line/end of section)
  • Different messages when people
  • Checking formatting (specifically breaking formatting)

This means that once again, I am warning everybody that whenever I test software, it has a tendency not to work properly. I will test what I can on a local Wiki, but I will also have to do some testing here.

revert discrepancy again

at [3], so let's enforce the new rule put into place about reverting.
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 03:31, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Well, 2 reverts on mine and 1 on -PRO-s side isn't much.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 03:41, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
You should not have reverted the second time. It should be left to be dealt with by the community. When we said two reverts, i took that to mean 1 each by 2 people, not 2 by 1.
As it happens, in this case i would agree that your image is better, as it shows more of the interface.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 14:29, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
Two to two!! It's a showdown
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 14:37, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
I reverted the image to the old one and protected it until this issue is resolved.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 14:46, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes, but my side has an admin too.....
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 14:56, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
But i'm not going to edit war. @jvvg Why do you think the old one is better?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 15:02, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I think the extra whitespace and the blurred out IP address make the image look awkward. Krett12, can provide one without extra whitespace (i.e. only the page, similar to this old one) but with what you say is the new interface, you can do that. However, instead of blurring out the IP address, please use inspect element (if you are using Chrome or Firefox) to just change it to 0.0.0.0 or something.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:38, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Also, I should say that if you do provide that (upload it to imgur or something), I will unprotect the page and clarify that the new image should be the one to stay. I reverted it because when protecting stuff from edit wars, I always keep it at what it was before the edit war started.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:39, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Just a notice

I noticed that my custom signature I used to recreate the default one when my picture wasn't updating messed up the format of the pages it was posted on. It's on about 18 talk pages right now, so I'm going to go through a spree right now and switch all of those back to the normal scratchsig where it has {{User:Derpmeup/Sig}}, but keep the timestamp.

Something interesting about account requests

On September 7, I added a thing to S:CONTRIB saying users need to specifically say they read that page in their request notes. Since then, I have received 7 requests out of which only one met that requirement. From this, I think I can safely conclude that basically nobody is reading that page.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:47, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

I read it :P I was interested in joining for about a month, so I read all the help pages and that page before requesting. When I was typing my request on the Special:RequestAccount page, I actually had that page on another tab open and I was reading what to say and what not to say. I guess it worked, I got accepted an hour later. xD
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 15:51, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Yeah, I like it when I get requests like that. Most of the time I just get people who I can tell skimmed the page and just tried to get the obvious stuff, and sometimes I get people who obviously never read it saying stuff like this (I now actually keep a log of the really bad ones):

Indeed, somebody just said "yay" for request notes. I almost take that as an insult, saying I went through all the trouble of writing that page and reviewing countless account requests just to receive that. I wish I had more people like you two.

There is absolutely no way that registrations will be closed. As long as new users are helpful, they are always welcome and useful. I'm also not sure if a public copy of the log of bad request notes is really necessary. What exactly would be the benefit of making it public? All the common mistakes people make are already outlined on S:CONTRIB. I just gave you these to demonstrate that people aren't reading that page.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 20:45, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
Also, a little more on closing registrations: most of us will probably leave within the next 2-3 years. Once that happens, we will have a major crisis in lack of editors, and we will need to rush to get more. This way, there is always a steady volume.

Yeah. I've been here since March 2012 (over 2 years) and I plan to still be active until I at least finish high school (2 more years). After that, if the situation allows, I will still be around and actively administrating. If not, I will be looking for another admin to replace me when that time comes around. In the meantime, though, don't worry about me going anywhere. :)

Well, I write my best music when I'm depressed, and I've been feeling pretty good lately. Even the more triumphant sections of my music are often written when I'm depressed, as writing it gives me hope.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 01:34, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
Like in the "Modern Piano Sonata" (the last big piece I wrote), I wrote the opening section just to be sarcastic, then I wrote the main slow C# Minor theme when I felt I wasn't getting anything done. I wrote the "Allegro Vivo" F Minor theme when I felt life was being very repetitive, and I was trying to represent how life kept repeating itself and coming back to me. The section of repeated chords was just something random I wrote. The F Major section and following slow F Minor section was something intended for a violin concerto, but I never got the orchestration right, but arranging it for piano worked pretty well. The "Presto" F Minor section was something I wrote more when I was angry, and the ending "Andante Maestoso" B Flat Major section was something I wrote amid a massive amount of schoolwork to encourage myself. I also wrote the piece at very different times. I wrote the violin concerto thing well over a year before the rest of it, then later wrote the C# Minor section as a short prelude. I wrote the Allegro Vivo F Minor section as an orchestral work, but never came up with much else to put with it, so I incorporated that. The rest of the stuff was written to stitch it together.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 01:41, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
interesting! I write music the best when I am not supposed to use the computer lol idk why but my latest piece, un dévouement, in the Toccata part, I also wrote it depending on my current emotion. for example, I felt extremily calm when I wrote the dolce part. It isn't really a toccata, but in the middle, its super hard and maybe considered one. your piece is cool i love the mix of all emotions in your piece!

Updated statistics: I've processed 15 requests in the last 10 days. One said anything about reading S:CONTRIB. Also, look at Special:Log/newusers. Several of them have a redlink for "contribs". We are having serious problems with new users.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 23:35, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

Is NoRed really needed?

Why does it matter if a userpage doesn't exist? It doesn't matter. Also, are red links really that bad? It's just a reminder of "This link needs to be deleted because the page does not exist".
SuperSmashScratch (talk | contribs) 01:04, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

When Krett started placing it everywhere before someone else had the chance to say anything, that resulted in a decision to keep it there for consistency because deleting pages also leaves a trace on the page.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 01:17, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
So, are we going to let him finish all of the red links? I think it should stop, honestly.
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 01:28, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
Must we really concern ourselves with such trivial matters such as red links? The only reason talk pages are here is to discuss articles, but when we start overtalking about the talk pages, then we are drifted away from the proper goal of editing articles on the Wiki.
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 01:56, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
I was actually going to bring something like that up! Seriously, look at this. There are actually a lot more talk page edits than main article edits. But, articles were the point this was created in the first place. I might try to set up a day on here where we keep talk page edits minimal, and we edit the articles a lot instead. :D

Heaps and other structures

Greetings Scratchers! Some of you may know of me. I'm an off-and-on member of the Scratch community and I may have just entered a "on" phase. I just wrote the new "Binary Heap" article, and I was wondering if you guys thought it'd be useful or appropriate to add some other, more advanced computer science articles. I really want the articles, if/when I write them, to teach practical implementations of computer algorithms and data structures that offer a slightly more formal look into Computer Science (though obviously without the rigorous explanations and proofs). Some things I was thinking of were: Binary Search Trees, Divide-and-Conquer, and Hash Tables (and hashing in general), and maybe stacks (queues are sort of inherent in the Heap article, but a separate article over viewing the concept might be a good idea too)

So I guess what I want to know is this: is the Scratch wiki the appropriate place for such articles (obviously Scratch isn't the easiest place to implement them, and the priority of Scratch is ease over, say, asymptotic running time). If it is, and you have read BinaryHeap, is my tone and approach sound? Any suggestions for improvements? More images? More pseudo code? Less/more explanation? I really want these articles to be accessible. Thanks for your input

Hello, MoreGamesNow!
If you want to create articles on things from computers, go here.
SuperSmashScratch (talk | contribs) 11:44, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
@SuperSmashScratch: It's not about computers, but about coding. ;)
@MoreGamesNow: I remember you from when you were an active Wikian, and I remember you did an amazing job with your articles! Welcome back! :D
Anyway, I think BinaryHeap is pretty much good from a writer's perspective, but I'll list a few questions I have at the need of my reply.
What I don't think is fine, as someone's already pointed out on your Binary Heap article, is that it doesn't tie back to Scratch at all. Yes, you use Scratch blocks to make the code, but how does it tie back to Scratch? I remember the Sound File Format article almost got axed earlier till I rewrote a lot of it to tie back to Scratch.
Personally, I think it would be good enough for BinaryHeap if you just included a section at the end listing a few projects where a BinaryHeap might be helpful, and why. Sort of like how in Sound File Format, I begin focused solely on Pulse-code Modulation, but then I included an entire section tying it back to Scratch.
Anyway, about my questions. You said "The number "7" in the heap above has an x position of 3 and a y position of 2." Doesn't it have an x position of 1, and a y position of 1? An x position of 1 because only 10 is to the left, and a y position of 1 because it's in the second row down.
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 13:41, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
Gotcha. I assume linking my own projects would be a little unethical haha. To be fair, I do give the primary two places where heaps are used (sorting and priority queues) and suggest priority queues can help with pathfinding, but I'll try to find some projects that actually implement this (A*, if memory serves, uses a priority queue, so that's an example that should be easy to find). Thanks for the catch -- I was referring to the heap below, I'll change that now.

MoreGamesNow (talk | contribs) 14:23, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
Priority queues and sorting are important, but it's not Scratch terminology, if you see where I'm coming from. ;)
If you're looking for examples, maybe you could check out 3D projects? I think a lot have binary heaps, but I can't say for sure, and they're usually complex! A simple example is a better example.
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 22:50, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
I don't know about that; a lot of projects us A* which calls for a priority queue, and a number of projects sort numbers (indeed, we have a "sorting" articles), so both of these quite related to Scratch in my opinion. Offhand, I'm not sure how one would use a heap for 3D rastering or raytracing, but I'll certainly give it a look! Thanks

Krett12 (talk | contribs) 23:58, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
Krett12, could you please explain why you think that? You were just asserting your position without really explaining it. The reason I suggested it is that we have a strict policy on no alt accounts, also meaning that if users change their name on the main site by creating a new account, they are out of luck here. This would allow users to do that, rather than restricting them to their original name. Of course, everybody would be notified (via the CP most likely) when a user changes names, and it would be pretty rare. However, technically it's very simple to install this extension, and it's been proven to work pretty well.

The AF Wiki is something we're hosting as essentially a pet humor project. It's not actually sponsored by Scratch, nor is it supported by them. Adding it to Interwiki would give the indication that they do sponsor it, at least to a certain extent.

should we refer to experienced wikians in articles as "Experienced Wikians" or "Experienced_Wikians"? (the hyphen comes from the userright and how it was created )

I agree that in the context of writing articles and help pages it should be "Experienced Wikians" (with a space). We don't refer to everything by its technical name, and it's meant to be written that way. For example, when an article needs its name changed for technical restrictions, we talk about it as if it were what it's supposed to be. The same applies here.

Scratch 1.4 Website

If anybody wants to play with it, here it is. It's a VirtualBox appliance with Ubuntu Server installed on it. Instructions are included in the description. Here are the basic requirements:

  • A relatively recent version Windows, Mac OS, or Linux
  • A 64-bit CPU with hardware virtualization support
  • At least 1 GB of RAM
  • A non-oppressive firewall (it uses port forwarding)

Inactive Users

I think we need an election for different positions. I am going to list all the Admins, Bureaucrats, and EW's. I will say whether they are active or inactive.
Experienced Wikians:"
ErnieParke
Hardmath123(not active)
1 active EW.
Administrators:" Chrischb(not active)
Johnathanpb(not active)
jvvg
Mathfreak231
Natalie(not active)
scimonster
Veggieman001(semi-active)
WeirdF(not active)
3 active admins.
Bureaucrats:
Andresmh(not active)
JSO(not active)
JSOadmin(not active)
Lightnin(not active)
Lucario621(not active)
Ricarose(not active)
Scmb1(not active, school is keeping her REALLY busy.)
Scratchteam(not really an account)
Speakvisually(not active)
That means 0 Bureaucrats. I think sci should be promoted.
Totals:
1 Experienced Wikian
3 Admins
0 Bureaucrats
I hope this will make you think about having an election or appoint some people.
-PRO- Logo2.png-PRO- (talk | contribs) 21:23, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

Wow, I actually agree with you on this. That makes the only active people with extra powers on the Scratch Wiki ErnieParke, jvvg, Mathfreak231, and Scimonster. I think there should be another election soon (January 2015, maybe...?), and in the end, one person will become an admin , and one person will become an Experienced Wikians. Also, about Scimonster being promoted, I totally agree. We have no active bureaucrats, and he's probably the admin that would be best for the position. Didn't I also once bring Scimonster becoming a bureaucrat up? Ir's because he's been on longer than any of the active admins, and he's also had some authority on the main Scratch Website. Like, he was a curator, an SDS curator, was a community moderator, had a lot of forum posts, and he became an admin on this Wiki out of pure trust by the bureaucrats. if you look in the user rights log, you'll find that Lucario621 appointed him admin out of nowhere, there was no election anywhere, and he didn't ask to become an admin, either. He promoted him because he trusted him, and he thought he would be a good admin. And, he was right. Scimonster's been an amazing admin, and he has 10000+ edits - and those edits are actually useful! He's been a giant help on the website, the forums, and the Wiki. So, because of all of that, and the lack of active bureaucrats, I think Scimonster should become a bureaucrat. We can't rely on scmb1 to do all of the bureaucrat tasks, because she's already been busy with moderating the Scratch website and she's been really busy with college. Lucario621 edited yesterday, but that certainly doesn't mean he's active again. Also, about the elections, I think when we do have the next one, there should be one new Experienced Wikian, one Experienced Wikian (Most likely ErnieParke ;P) promoted to admin, possibly one brand new admin who wasn't already an Experienced Wikian, and I think Scimonster should become a bureaucrat. So, there could be an addition to each new user group with powers meant for users in our next election. :P But anyways, you did bring up a good point, and I completely agree with everything you said. Also, do you think we should make Paddle2See a bureaucrat here? He has an account, but he's only edited twice, and he's just in the normal user rank. Those are my thoughts on this post and Scimonster becoming a bureaucrat, sorry for the huge length in this post. :P I just had a lot to say. xD
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 21:51, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
I'm still not sure about having an election... it's not good that we have inactive people, I agree. But in a sense we do have an active bureaucrat, scmb1, who just spends their time on the Scratch website versus the Scratch Wiki. I'm sure if we asked them anything on their profile page, they'd come here quickly. Same thing with lightnin, speakvisually, and ricarose. I don't doubt that Scimonster would make a good admin, but I don't see much of a need at the moment. Besides, what does a bureaucrat do that an admin can't do, and that would need to be done often or has time restrictions?
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 22:15, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
Unless you get approval from the Scratch Team, this is off the table.. Being a bureaucrat can be ridiculously detrimental, such as demoting all of the ST members.

@Krett12 Why do you say such a thing? Do you actually think i would vandalize the wiki as a bureaucrat when i haven't for this many years as an admin?! And of course we would need the ST to make the changes.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 01:31, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Here's the plan I propose: we elect 1-2 EWs, make ErnieParke an admin, and elect one of the current admins as bureaucrat. I think all of us would be good choices, I'm just a bit hesitant about Sci at the moment because he recently returned from a very long vacation (although by the time we get around to an election this won't really be an issue).

Don't make any guarantees that we're going to have an election any time soon. Krett12, please don't campaign or ask people for votes.

Election nominations (nominate yourself here)

If you want to run in the coming election to become an EW, please nominate yourself here. Note that I only want a list of people who want to run, so please only say that you want to run. We will start speeches as we get closer to the election. Anyway, here is the process:

  • Nominate yourself here
  • Existing EWs and admins pick from the list who would be most fit to run
  • Those chosen write speeches
  • After speeches are up for sufficient time, we start the election

In the election, we will probably pick 2 EWs. We will also be voting for one of the existing admins to become bureaucrat (no nominations necessary), and will probably promote ErnieParke to admin.

I'll run. [email removed by admin] I'll work on my speech.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 23:15, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Wait, why don't you want them to censor it? They actually should.
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 23:17, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, what was the point of sharing your email? I only need the emails of the existing admins to discuss who will be on the candidates from the list of people nominated. Anyway, added you.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 23:19, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I would like to run. I do not care AT ALL if I am not elected!
Jandrewg (talk | contribs) 23:45, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Added you. We're getting a nice list going here. :)
jvvg (talk | contribs) 23:46, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Allow me to run.
TheHockeyist (talk | contribs) 00:06, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Added you. Once again, please stop writing speeches here. I just want a list of people who want to run. Speeches come later.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 00:15, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Man, glad I avoided that edit conflict. Sorry, Krett, but your email has to go.
Mathfreak231 (talk | contribs) 00:16, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Sorry. I thought you were going to reject me instantly.
TheHockeyist (talk | contribs) 00:25, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
No, we don't do that. We will accept anybody that nominates him/herself. We will then decide the official list of candidates after sufficient time has passed to let everybody that wants to run nominate themselves.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 00:26, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Ah, okay then. I'll wait then.
TheHockeyist (talk | contribs) 00:30, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

This looks cool but I probably couldn't handle all that responsibilty...
wolfpup500 (talk | contribs) 00:32, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

It's fine :)
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 00:34, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Hmm maybe I'll step up my activity this October and afterwards (since I have less stuff to do now) would I be a fine candidate?
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 02:16, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Anybody can run. ;)
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 02:20, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
OK! I guess I'll nominate myself! :)
SuperSmashScratch (talk | contribs) 11:42, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Added you.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 11:45, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! :)
SuperSmashScratch (talk | contribs) 11:50, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
@turkey3 You should run. Step up your activity a bit and you'd do a great job.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 12:41, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Where it got offtopic...

ikr i mean you're edits are sooo amazing !!! :)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 13:30, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Yeah! I don't know where you get all these article ideas. ;) I would love to create more articles if I had ideas, the only one I've created so far is a PicoBoard block that I realized didn't have a page: When () () () (block).

^reverse psychology :P anyways, yes, I do agree!
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 23:43, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Back ontopic.

Turkey3 also is running now.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 01:16, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

I think him or KrIsMa is going to be my first choice, can't decide ;) But, either way, they will be my top 2. :P
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 02:53, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
I would also like to run.
Swampert11 (talk | contribs) 14:11, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
Awesome :)
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 14:33, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
Added you. :)
jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:07, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

What?

I just clicked on my edit count page because I was browsing the Wiki, and then I noticed something on it. It says I have 3 edits in the 'Scratch Wiki Talk' namespace, even though I've made well over 120. Why did that happen? :/
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 00:27, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

All CP edits just got lost after Mathfreak had to delete it to censor an email address.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 00:28, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Oh
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 00:29, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
The Community Portal now has 15 views compared to the 350,000 it once had :P
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 00:29, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
As a result, I think maybe deleting User:BWOG/Edit Rankings would be a good idea, as the counts are now very inaccurate. (edit conflicted twice!)
jvvg (talk | contribs) 00:30, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
When a page is deleted, the edit count stays on the magic word, it just gets removed on the special page. There's no need for deleting it
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 00:32, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
15 o.o lol
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 00:51, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Wow. Can't you just, I don't know, change it to roughly what it was before? Or is that out of your control?
wolfpup500 (talk | contribs) 00:56, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Jvvg, you should have restored the page instead of remaking it. xD
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 01:01, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

The whole point of deleting then re-making it was to censor the revision with Krett's email address.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 01:12, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
You can restore without some revisions included
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 01:36, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
I am confused edit counts seem to be fine. Either way with a little Mediawiki Magic we could keep the BWOG page relevant through this great thing called addition.
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 02:15, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
Special:Editcount/Turkey3 your Scratch Wiki Talk edits have substantially lowered, too :(
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 02:54, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Who's awesome!

I got back the CP history using some hacking. :D

I'm not going to delete to try and remove Krett's email; it'll stay there. Call it a punishment if you want.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 09:26, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

It worked! :D I just checked my Scratch Wiki talk edits, they're at 152 now. I didn't think it could be brought back, but you did it :P
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 13:26, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
didn't krett want the email to not be censored in the start? (so maybe he's happy)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 13:28, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
But he didn't bring back the email. Yay now I have 2K edits again!
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 14:10, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

sys ur op?

this term has been going around the wiki a lot - and I was wondering what it means?
i will slice your over powered?!?
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 01:55, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Not sure. Systemize your operation? No, that sounds too medical :P
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 02:56, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
@KrIsMa: I think it was a pun originally made by Mathfreak231 on his user page.
@Turkey3: xD
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 03:01, 24 September 2014 (UTC)
I think veggieman used it first.

Scratch Profile Template

Should there be a template for linking to a Scratch profile easier? I had an idea for one, but I'm not sure if I should make it yet. For example, {{Scratch Profile:Scimonster}} would produce a link to Scimonster's Scratch profile. What are your thoughts on this template?
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 04:05, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

well you can use {{user}}, such as KrIsMa (talk | contribs) (me!) and derpmeup (talk | contribs) (you!)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 14:20, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

It happened so fast!

Can't believe I'm saying this but time to archive!
