Hello. :P

Hi guys. You should indent your posts with colons at the front, to make it easier to follow. ;)
And did you mean to write "the my talk page"? :P
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 12:29, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
No, I didn't. Thanks for catching that. :P

Cure my boredom... :P

I'm bored... Any of you play Lego Universe? :/

Fansite articles

Sorry, articles on user fansites aren't allowed. To find out more, please read this archived discussion.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 16:57, 12 November 2011 (UTC)

Oh. Sorry. I'll remember that.
ElectricSparx (talk | contribs) 17:58, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
It's OK, just telling you. :)
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 18:15, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
Can I put the link on my user page?
ElectricSparx (talk | contribs) 00:28, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, you're free to put links to projects and fansites on your userpage, just not create articles on them :)
WeirdF (talk | contribs) 09:17, 13 November 2011 (UTC)
Oh goody.
ElectricSparx (talk | contribs) 04:06, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
To make an external link properly, enclose it in single brackets, not double. :P If you just want the plain text, don't use any. To change the name, put a space and the display text:
  1. http://scratch.mit.edu/
  2. [1]
  3. Scratch Home

Snap!

I was wondering why we hadn't heard from you in so long!

No, neither Smalltalk nor Flash, but Javascript and HTML5 Canvas. With very small exceptions (so far anyway) it's all Jens coding like mad.

The idea about levels is possible, but it would be really subtle. I mean, each big idea really just adds a handful of blocks. For first class lists, it's just the LIST reporter. For first class functions, it's THE BLOCK, THE SCRIPT, CALL, RUN, LAUNCH. For first class sprites and inheritance, it's just CLONE, OBJECT, and ATTRIBUTE (and a severe but invisible overloading of OF). If we had a big sharing site like the Scratch one, then it would make sense to grade projects on the difficulty of the ideas in them. But really, I don't see what everyone is afraid of. Every Scratcher downloads someone else's project and doesn't understand how it works -- e.g., because it scrolls the background and this user hasn't learned how to do that yet. Their heads don't explode. And in Snap! we're talking about older kids who presumably are better at delayed gratification.

About my user talk page, I think those are mostly for other people to talk to me, not for me to blog. I have a real web page (http://cs.berkeley.edu/~bh) for that. :-)

Interesting. That explains why it looks much better, graphics-wise. (That's all I could get from the picture :P) I was browsing the Wiki, and found a place called "Mod Share", which allows uploads from Scratch modifications, including BYOB/Snap. And I'm checking out Panther (which seems to be the only other Scratch modification that the site will let me download :P), as well. I think BYOB/Snap's "Build a block" feature is much more simple. Being as I don't understand text(ish) programming (one of the reasons I use Scratch), it would take me a while to learn Smalltalk or any other programming language. (My dad tried to get me to do QBASIC when I was 6 XD) And about your talk page, I know it's mainly a "talk" page (hence the name), but "Hi. Talk to me..." just makes you sound like a boring old coot (no offense :P). You're much more lively, and that's just giving people the wrong idea. And I'll have to check out your blog, too. (I thought you guys were using chirp.scratchr.org) I've made my own site with Weebly called Scratch Retro, which will feature me blogging and stuff, along with cool/interesting Scratch stuff. I'm even going to put a link to the BYOB/Snap page on there. :P

The wiki is not a place to have discussions. Please do that in the forms.
Bsteward (talk | contribs) 16:33, 19 November 2011 (UTC)

Why do you keep removing BSteward's edit?

It is perfectly OK for him to tell you that. You don't need to remove his post. If you disagree with something that someone has said, please explain why respectfully. Don't just remove his edit without telling why.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 09:08, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

It's not his conversation.
ElectricSparx (talk | contribs) 16:23, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
Check my talk page for example. I always get people butting in. XD Do I unceremoniously remove their edits? No!
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 17:30, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
But those people probably are sticking to the topic.
ElectricSparx (talk | contribs) 21:15, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
And so is he, in a way. He is softly reminding.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 07:55, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
"Softly" reminding? It looks more like troll spam.
ElectricSparx (talk | contribs) 16:34, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Please stop arguing. Just make sure that your discussions are wiki related if they are on Scratch wiki Talk Pages in the future.
Bsteward (talk | contribs) 16:38, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

*sigh* I can't go on the forums because my internet safety thing blocks the main forums. Not the TBGs, though.
ElectricSparx (talk | contribs) 21:20, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
What internet safety thing do you have. There has to be a way to make an exclusion.

It's called K9, and my mom had to put in a password to change stuff.

The Wiki is not a chat area

Talk pages on the Wiki are not chat areas. They are only for discussing improvement to the article, and the Community Portal for improvements to the wiki.

User talk pages can be used to tell something to the user, but it generally should have something to so with the wiki. To quote Lucario621, "It's not like we think it will be harmful to any major extend, but remember, this is the Scratch Wiki -- not a big place to just "put text". :P"

Thanks! :)

Well, if you would go to Bharvey's talk page, you will find just WHY I'm putting such a huge piece of text on your computer screen.
ElectricSparx (talk | contribs) 16:24, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
I know about bharvey's talk page, and the "chief bureaucrat" has told him that this isn't the place. ;)
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 17:31, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
Did you scroll to the bottom? Because there was a new addition.
ElectricSparx (talk | contribs) 21:20, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

The wiki FAQ says "Talk pages are meant to be for wiki-related comments and questions, not for having a conversation about something else." You should have read the FAQ by now. If you haven't I suggest you do now.

Talk Pages

ElectricSparx, it's great that you're trying to be active around the wiki and such, but posts like this really are a waste of space. First of all, wiki editors all know how to view an image in its full resolution. Secondly, wiki viewers rarely look at talk pages. So it's not really helping anybody. Basically, in terms of how to use talk pages: If you think something is wrong with a page, then edit it! It's a wiki, it's what you're supposed to do. If you do it wrong, then a more experienced editor will most likely correct you. If you really don't know where to start with editing it, or can't for permissions reasons then you should post the problem on the talk page. Above we've already talked to you about what talk pages should be used for above. Don't post observations or things that don't really relate to the article like here and here. You have been told by both me and scimonster what to do with talk pages, so just try in future to make more useful edits :)
WeirdF (talk | contribs) 16:56, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

To add to what WeirdF said: If you want to know if something should go in an article, ask on the talk page. Also, if something is broken, and you don't know how to fix it, bring up the problem on the talk page as well. :)

HTML

The <a> tag doesn't work with wiki syntax, but you can use regular wiki external links. ;)
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 09:35, 18 December 2011 (UTC)

I was trying to do the link thing for Roblox, but you can remove it, since it doesn't work.

Scatch Retro

Just to say that the link to Scratch Retro doesn't work! :(

Hmm. Don't know why that is.

Hi back

I just posted a response on my talk page to your comment from 2011 that somehow I didn't get email about!  :(
