This page should not be deleted.

It is related because there are alot of fourm post to user created sites about scratch.

I also think that this page could exist on the wiki, though not necessarily the way it is currently written. It is, after all, a part of Scratch Culture. jvvg, do you want to explain why you feel it should have been deleted?

At least the way the page was originally written, it didn't talk about the connection with Scratch at all, it was just talking about websites. Making it more Scratch-relevant would basically have required rewriting the page from scratch (no pun intended).

I agree that the page was definitely not up to scratch (pun intended), but was deletion necessary? Maybe it could include something like the ST's position on them, history, general types of sites. That would emphasize the connection to Scratch better.

As I stated above, with the original page, making it fit Wiki guidelines would have basically required a complete rewrite. As such, I saw it more fit to delete. It can always be re-created.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:02, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I agree. I didn't really put much information on how its related to scratch. Perhaps it should be written by multiple people. Permission to rewrite?
Realtheawesome67 (talk | contribs) 15:15, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
Sure. Be sure to emphasize the Scratch connection, though.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 12:17, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
Ok. Will do. I am going to blank the page until it is written.

This isn't really related to the wiki.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 08:13, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
This is just a question. It does not say how to make one in the topic, so he just asked a question.

Wiki ≠ forum.

You can always use something like weebly, webs.com, or Enjin. They are great web hosting sites.

Rule #4

Naleksuh, regarding this edit and this edit, I think it's still better to mention "personal information" specifically. I think the way you reworded it is good, but I think it should specify "personal information" like so:

The site may not provide or request email addresses, phone numbers, real names, or other personal information not allowed on the Scratch website.

"Information" can really be anything, but this point is specifically referring to personal information, I believe. :)

In fact, how about we just quote how the Scratch Team say the rules themselves, like this? :) (I changed the BBCode to wikitext.)
Hi Folks! You no longer need to register your personal websites here prior to linking to them from Scratch. Please be sure that any links you post follow the Scratch Community Guidelines, the Scratch Terms of Use, and the Policies in our Announcements area. Some common problem areas people tend to overlook:

  1. All content on your site must be appropriate for Scratchers of all ages.
  2. Your site should not be giving out any of your personal information - in the website name, in the “Contact Us” area, in links to social media sites, and so on. Remember that what you post on the internet is very hard to remove.
  3. Your site should not be asking for email addresses - this often happens in the “Contact Us” area.
  4. Your site should not be providing unmoderated communication.
  5. Make sure your site is not downloading anything potentially malicious.
  6. Your site should not be selling anything.

If you see a site that seems to be violating any of these conditions, please use the usual Report buttons on Scratch. Thanks and Scratch On!

I'm not sure we could say the Scratch Team's rules better than they could. :P

Yes, I did see that list, but decided not to use it as it was encyclopedic. However, we could use that list for the actual requirements themselves but use our own wording. Is that okay?

Hmm... I still think that there is value to using the Scratch Team's wording verbatim (of course, properly cited), since it is an official policy... :)

We can't refer to "your site" in an article per S:EC, meaning stuff like that and other stuff as well will need to be changed. However, we can cite the link to the original post by Paddle2See which describes it losslessly.
Naleksuh.jpg Naleksuh (talk | contribs) 06:19, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
I'm guessing it would be okay if it's a quote. That is, we're not referring to "your site"; Paddle2See is, and we're quoting him. :)
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk ▪︎ contribs 06:24, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
I personally do not like putting quotes in articles but I don't think I am going to get much further than that. So I suppose just put the quote in, it can always be edited again if necessary.

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────I love quotes and think they are a very important and insightful part of articles. They help us see the topic the article is discussing from a different, sometimes non-neutral perspective. They also help articles to digress from a monotonous flow of explanation. That is not to say that articles are always monotonous without quotes, or that they are not interesting to read; however, quotes can certainly liven up an article.

Anyhow, I am getting off-topic. I have added the quote. Does the way I added it look okay? :)
