Question...

How does the 'Current' command thing work? Right now, it is saying that mfairy is the current curator, but it is actually The_Icecream_Girl.

Current is basically a template page. Feel free to take a look at it:: Curator (front page)/Current
By the way, in links, "/something" really means "Current Page Name/something"

Ah, thanks. I get it now. :)

Could become outdated

Is it really necessary to include the name of the current curator? I could see that getting left in the dust if nobody remembers... Maybe just say that the name of the current curator can be found on the front page? --

I remember to add the new curator, I do it every other Monday. :)

Correct order?

I believe I was a curator before that, I don't mind too much but just in case...I don't remember anyways, so no biggy :)

Yeah, it's pretty much definitely the complete order. The names are added as they go :)

What We Could Also Consider Is Adding Some Info About Curating A Studio, Not The Front Page. Just A Suggestion :)

Adding a section about posting a speech

Would it be bad to add a little section that gives tips on improving your chances to be picked?
Chrischb (talk | contribs) 04:26, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure... it could count as 'cheating', but it's sort of like simply reminding people what they need to say in their speech, right?
Maybe there could simply be some reminders like "make sure you mention what types of projects you want to show" and such?

Andresmh

Here it has an apostrophe next to his name, which I know means note, but as he already has one on the main site, doesn't it look like that is his actual username a little?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 12:33, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

And it has a link too... :P
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 20:06, 9 April 2011 (UTC)
you mean asterisk, right?
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 20:15, 9 April 2011 (UTC)
Yes. :P Don't blame me for getting mixed up last month. :P
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 17:52, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
lol, okay. I say we leave it. if it really matters so much, you could use †, but a lot of people don't know what that means.
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 17:54, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
I think it's fine, just wanted to point it out.

Linking to users

What do you think about linking to the curators' my stuff pages?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 09:03, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

we don't generally link to users. I vote no.
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs)

Can we move this to the title 'Curators'? :P

It just seems more flowing that way and all that... :3 :3 :3
Chrischb (talk | contribs) 05:57, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

"Flowing that way"?
Is there a reason we need plural?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 08:54, 12 May 2011 (UTC)
(late reply :P) Well for one thing the article starts with "Curators", and other articles have their titles plural.
Chrischb (talk | contribs) 11:50, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
Other articles have the text plural/singular when the title is singular/plural.
There are only 3 links to "Curators" and like 20 to "Curator" though. ;)

Moving the list

Since we moved the list of SDSes to a subpage, should we do that here too?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 10:54, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

Definitely.
Lucario621 (talk | contribs) 21:25, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
Done!

Speech idea

I thought we could make a speech for the "making good speeches" section. Here's the speech:

"I would love to be a curator! I would like to do it and know would be good at it because I know all those types of projects that Scratchers create and deserve more views than the projects get. It would also be a good opportunity because it would show more about myself right on the front page. People would know that I like simple or complex animations and games as well. I would curate all types of projects. Games, animations, here are some examples: Simulations: (link to simulation project) (another link to simulation project) Animations: (link to animation project) (link to animation project) Games: (link to game) Interactive animation and material: (link to project) (link to project) I think I would choose 1-3 projects every one or two days. I will not curate: Coloring contest entries Inappropriate projects (of course. :P It's part of the guidelines) I will not curate projects with over 90 views and will not curate projects from really popular Scratchers. I hope I can get the curator position!"

I just posted here to make sure admins would like the example speech in the article.

There's a short topic above this about tips. Jonathanpb seemed to think actually posting a speech would be "cheating", but i'm not sure. I don't think we should provide a template speech, but suggesting that they look at other users' speeches to give them ideas would be OK.

Issue with 2.0

Now that people who can add projects to galleries are now also called "Curators", this article should be moved to something like "Curator (front page)", and a new article should be created called something like "Curator (gallery)", and the article "Curator" should be replaced with a disambiguation page.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 16:43, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

You mean studio? :P BTW, congrats on becoming a curator.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 20:07, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
The 2.0 changes are even getting to me now! :P And thanks.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 20:12, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
We can't. The link on the Scratch homepage links to this article. We could ask Lightnin to change it, but until he changes it (or whoever) we can't move this page.
Curiouscrab (talk | contribs) 18:51, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
We could always rename the articles but keep a redirect from Curator to here.
Blob8108 (talk | contribs) 19:38, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
I think the best option is to use Template:About to link to Studio#Curators, maybe for a temporary fix if the Curator (studio) is created.
Bsteward (talk | contribs) 16:04, 9 July 2013 (UTC)
That idea is Yes Done ;)

Reference Needed?

Hi! I think a reference to this page would be good after the part mentioning that the curator shift was originally 2 weeks in the introduction. What do you think? --
Chooper100 (talk | contribs) 21:52, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

At the bottom of history where it mentions this, reference note 9 leads to the page already...

Curator Slot

Today many scratcher's noticed that the curator slot disappeared should we add that to the article? I could do it but I want some opinions first!
Programmer1121 (talk | contribs) 18:23, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

It's back now
Rollercoasterfan (talk | contribs) 23:56, 30 November 2015 (UTC)
I know its back but should we document it?
Programmer1121 (talk | contribs) 01:05, 1 December 2015 (UTC)
I don't think it's nessescary
Rollercoasterfan (talk | contribs) 01:06, 1 December 2015 (UTC)
As far as I know, this is a minor bug that did not get a lot of attention, so I agree with Rollercoasterfan. It should not be documented.
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 14:45, 1 December 2015 (UTC)
The problem was that lepsstudent had 2 projects favorited by the same person, which caused the row to disappear. I don't really think it's important, if we wrote down something that was different about every curator shift here, we would have a long list xD

Broken references

Reference 2 gives a broken link: http://info.scratch.mit.edu/Become_a_Scratch_Curator

Reference 9 just leads to the generic news feed: (not the specific item) http://scratch.mit.edu/news#51765462803

Either these need updating or removing


Chooper100 (talk | contribs) 20:49, 29 December 2016 (UTC)

Ref 2 is a link to the Scratch 1.4 site, so it should be updated to the link to the current page with information about becoming a curator. Ref 9 links to something that is no longer on the news feed since it was a while ago, so it unfortunately needs to be removed.
