Email tags

The email tags aren't on Scratch Forums / Help anymore, but I think they still work. Should we keep them in the article? We like to be complete...

I think it'll be okay if we add a mention that e-mails shouldn't be shared on the Scratch website :P

There is one. :P

Javascript URL?

Those don't work, do they? I thought FluxBB added the http:// prefix before anything.

IDK. javascript:void(0) works, I know. Why don't you try it out (using preview)?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 10:45, 22 January 2012 (UTC)
It doesn't. I've tried it before, and it doesn't work. Any javascript just creates a fake link.

Ok, it does NOT work, so I'm deleting that phrase.

Why does it call chrome: a pseudo-protocol? Doesn't it follow protocol formatting, (chrome://), rather than about: or data: URI formatting? Not that I know much about protocols. :P

chrome: is the Chrome/Chromium/Chromium-like equivalent of about:, pretty much.

No, other browsers use the chrome:// protocol. It defines graphical things about the browser. See?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 09:49, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
The visible graphical interface features of an application are sometimes referred to as "chrome", but chrome is the only browser that uses the chrome:// protocol.

False, FF does too.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 15:44, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, FF does use it. But it's an unofficial URI scheme. Chrome uses it for about: as well.

Should I delete the email BBCode from the page? The Scratch Team doesn't allow it, & if it's on the page, it could encourage spammers to use it more. What do you think?

See the top discussion on this page...
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 14:26, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
Oh, and what would spammers do with it anyways?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 14:26, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
Oh wow. I just saw that right now. Anyways, it's highly unlikely, but spammers could see the page, & use the email tag on the forums.

But what's worse about the email tag than the other tags?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 16:27, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
Oh lol. I didn't notice this discussion when I removed that section. I personally think it doesn't belong since
  • Emails aren't allowed to be posted on the Scratch Website
  • Email syntax isn't shown on the BBCode help page
  • In the rare situation that the person does want to post an email that is OK to use (the only one I can think of is, they can just type out the email address, and not use the tag.
There simply isn't any need for the tag to be used. What do you think?

Makes sense I suppose.

Added Section


Here is a note to let you know that I added a section on the globe button. This is because on a stub page Globe Button

Minerman6 (talk | contribs) 20:17, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

The globe button has almost nothing to do with BBCode.

This should be merged with Scratch Discussion Forums. The page said that it was not relevant to Scratch, and I think that the page for this talk page is useful.

For length and convenience purposes, let's keep this article.

Should be Featured

This page should be featured because it’s very useful and new scratchers might need to know about BBCode. It’s really useful and even taught ME new stuff! Like, I never knew that there was a text colour tan — I only know of red, orange, yellow, lime, green, cyan, blue, purple, white and pink.

If you want this to be featured, wait until the next Wiki Wednesday. LiFayTheGoblin will post in the CP and ask for suggestions. You can suggest this article there.

Cool! Where’s the CP?
Forested (talk | contribs) 14:59, 12 July 2017 (UTC)
Click the "Community Portal" (CP = Community Portal) button on the left. Remember, you can't suggest them yet. You have to wait for the next Wiki Wednesday. (Also, sorry but I made your post an unsigned comment as it is weird me replying before you even posted it)

Should we add code syntax highlighting examples?

Same as title
