Bookmonster

There is a Scratcher with one post here who seems to be a member of the ST and calls herself Stephanie :/ http://scratch.mit.edu/forums/viewtopic.php?pid=1231170#p1231170

If she was part of the Scratch Team it would say that under her name.

Not necessarily. In any case, we should still wait until any further information is known before adding it to this page. :)
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 00:03, 8 May 2012 (UTC)
Check what cheddar said in that topic, and what bookmonster said below that.
Jji7skyline (talk | contribs) 09:56, 10 May 2012 (UTC)
Yep, but we don't have any last name information. It appears that the current Scratch Team members have changed; maybe we'll have information on the new ones in the credits for 2.0.
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 13:19, 10 May 2012 (UTC)
Stephanie's legit - she's the admin for LLK. Without her, everything would grind to a halt. :)
Lightnin (talk | contribs) 01:09, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
Bookmonster is a real member of the Scratch Team. You posted this a while ago, so it's probably when you posted that she didn't have the admin status. :)

Removal of Scratch Team Forum View

veggieman's edit summary "per discussion on steam with luc" isn't really much of an explanation, but we basically decided that the single image didn't really provide much information to the article whatsoever. "Administration" doesn't really do much, and it's somewhat obvious that the Scratch Team can see reports. For this reason we decided it's not really important to have on the article.

Problems with first paragraph

I think the first paragraph puts too much emphasis on moderation, and seems kind of wordy and confusing. I'd suggest something like "The Scratch Team is the group of people responsible for the development and maintenance of Scratch and the Scratch online community." The stuff about ScratchR's doesn't really seem relevant to me - AFAIK, it was just the title Andres used when he setup his forum account. I've never heard of people who focus on working on the website referred to as ScratchRs. ScratchR is usually only used to refer to the current version of the website (which AndrΓ©s was the lead developer of).

Scratch Usernames

Wouldn't it be helpful to put the Scratch Team member's usernames beside their real names so people can find who they are on Scratch? Many a time, I've looked at this article to try to find their usernames, but they aren't there. I could probably help a bit, as I feel like I've friended about all of the,, so it'd just involve looking through my friends list and doing a little more research. What do you guys think?

Hmm, i've never seen her. Is she one of the people on the list?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 17:19, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
She's not on the Scratch Team list. While she's contributed a lot by moderating part time (and doing a great job), I wouldn't consider her to be a member of the Scratch Team. For someone to be "Scratch Team", I'd say they need to spend more of their day working on Scratch or the Scratch community by participating in design conversations and / or being a leader in the community, that sort of thing (which, for example, Paddle2See and Cheddar both do.) So while I really value Nasus' contributions, I wouldn't put her on the Scratch Team wiki page.

I know the user profile says that the user "pico" helps with Scratch, but is there anything else that agrees with that (e.g. a forum post by a known Scratch Team member)?

On Scratch, the account ScratchCat* has the rank of Scratch Team. The account is not mentioned on the Credits page and is presumably controlled by other Scratch Team members. Would it be able to be mentioned on this page?

One of the other ST members controls that account, there is nobody who is solely responsible for it. It does not go on this page, though it may be a better (less personal) target for the example image of the asterisk next to an ST member's name.

Should we add pamimus to the list? They've been an ST member for about 3 months or so now. Do we need to know their first name in order to add?
wangat (talk | contribs) 20:06, 7 June 2021 (UTC)

Their profile still says Scratcher (regardless of what their "About me" says) and I don't see them listed on the credits page, so I would say no until we can get some sort of official verification they are a Scratch Team member.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 21:04, 7 June 2021 (UTC)
Well, seeing as ST members ceebee, SpeakVisually, designerd, pondermake, scmb1, and ericr have all followed this user, it seems like they are apart of the ST. According to Za-Chary, in this post, it takes a few months for that page to update. However, I'll ask Za-Chary.
wangat (talk | contribs) 22:03, 7 June 2021 (UTC)
ceebee has given confirmation that pamimus is a Scratch Team member. (source) Should we add them now, or do we need their first name/last initial?
wangat (talk | contribs) 10:09, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
Now that we actually have confirmation, yes we should. However, as a note, we should not add members unless we have some sort of explicit confirmation. Examples of explicit confirmation include being listed on the Scratch Team credits page, having the Scratch Team rank, or a different Scratch Team member giving confirmation such as in this case. Things that do not count as explicit confirmation include being followed by other Scratch Team members, saying they are a Scratch Team member themself, etc.

Techncically, the accounts that are controlled by the ST do have their own little portion at the bottom of the list of Current Members. I don't think it's necessary to give them their own section and explain that "these accounts are controlled by the Scratch Team".

Removing Members

 Unresolved (see all...)

The users below are not on the Our Team page (whether under current or previous), and do not have Scratch Team status. My proposal for these users is that we remove them from the page completely.

  • Lena (labdalla)
  • Nicole (theladynico)
  • Marian (mwikali)

___
Below are users that are under previous members on the are team page, but have the Scratch Team status. I have no idea what to do with them.

  • Natalie (natalie) (I know that this natalie is natalie rusk because of the wikipedia page).

I also think we should remove mres's "mres" account from the list, and only have mres-admin... other ST members like ceebee have two accounts (ceebee and eebeec) and they're not listed... Even some former members have alt accounts, including Za-Chary (Za-Chary and Za-Chary_test).

I also alphabetized the lists (by first name). Please give your thought on the three things above.
Han614698 H Logo.png han614698 talk β€’ contribs β€’ profile 18:21, 26 August 2022 (UTC)

I think it's oversight on the ST's part that those three are left out. Lena at the very least I remember being part of the ST. You might do well to open an issue or submit a PR against the scratch-www repo to remedy that.
I think if we remove one of mres' accounts, it should be mres-admin. mres is a lot better known.
I'm surprised that Natalie is the only one with ST status in the former members list. I could have sworn that there were more. Our general practice is to mirror the credits page, so if she's in the former members section there then so must she be here.
Alphabetizing is a good idea. I think it only seemed like it wasn't because it used to be alphabetized by last name, rather than first, before we removed last names at their request.
Kenny2scratch logo.jpg kenny2scratch  Talk  Contribs  Directory 
00:55, 27 August 2022 (UTC)
I don't have a github account sadly so I can't submit a PR. I'm pretty sure Lena is a Scratch Team member, but Nicole and Marian don't really have anything on their side - I think that we should leave them for now.
I'd also like to bring up that Mitch (mres) is under previous members on the Our Team page. That's kind of confusing, considering his admin account has Scratch Team status. In my opinion, if we remove one we should remove mres, considering mres-admin is the account with the Scratch Team status.
I also agree with your point, most people have heard of mres vs. mres-admin. This may be the reason that mres' two accounts are on here and ceebee's and Za-Chary's are not. I'm personally fine adding ceebee's or Za-Chary's alternate accounts here, but I think this article now turns into a article all about some specific Scratchers.
I think that Natalie is a kind of important Scratch Team member, but I agree that she should be under previous now.
I'd also like to bring up that there is a previous Scratch Team member with the Scratch Account ipzy, and ipzy's real name is Natalie. However, there is only one Natalie on the previous members list, and that Natalie is Natalie Rusk. Upon googling Natalie Rusk, I get a person that seems to be natalie* on Scratch.
Another thing I'd like to say is that I moved designerd previous members, due to the fact that they were on the credits page under Previous Members, even though I know for a fact that they designed part of the blm and pride emojis. I wasn't sure what to do with that one.
The last thing I'm going to say is that Amy (amylaser) is still on the credits page, and I don't know what to do with here since I know she's not an ST member, but yet shes in the credits page.
I'd also like to know if we should add full last names to the previous members (since that's public information on the credit's page).
For now, I'm going to keep Lena, Nicole and Marian; but move Natalie to previous.
I apologize for the long post.
Han614698 H Logo.png han614698 talk β€’ contribs β€’ profile 01:24, 27 August 2022 (UTC)
