Look what i did.

Welcome!

Welcome To The Scratch Wiki! Bigpuppy, Thanks for joining us :D

I recommend you read Bigpuppy's New Wikian Tips which you can find right there below!


Also, please enjoy being a new wikian :P


Look what i did. Based entirely off yours.

I saw, nice job! Thanks for including my tips! :)

Can you..

can you please move the template to my userspace? Quick question: would that affect the Template:LankyBox01/Welcome-Template tag?
LankyBox01 (talk | contribs) 23:25, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

I moved it and replied to the discussion on your talk page. Yes, instances of {{Template:LankyBox01/Welcome-Template}} will need to be fixed. :)
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk ▪︎ contribs 23:27, 22 August 2020 (UTC)
Actually, i didn't include the "template:" thingy so it still works :P


LankyBox01 (talk | contribs) 23:28, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

It doesn't show up on User talk:Papipupepappa — you will need to change it to {{User:LankyBox01/Welcome-Template}}. :)

Editing Signature

I created a new signature for myself on my sandbox, but how do I set it to be my signature? I tried to do it in preferences, but the code was too long. Is there any other way that I can do it?
Illusion705 (talk | contribs) 00:45, 23 August 2020 (UTC)

S:CSIG (specifically S:GOODSIG) has the instructions. :)
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk ▪︎ contribs 01:12, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
Yay! It worked :) Thanks!
Illusion705's User Logo1.png   Illusion705 talk | contribs  01:48, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
Great! However, can you make sure you are using a minisig (instructions at S:GOODSIG) so that the source code is not so large? Thanks! :)
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk ▪︎ contribs 01:51, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! Sorry about that! I believe I fixed it :)

Extra Page?

Bigpuppy: Are You there?    Either way, Do we need the user page of Jammum (https://en.scratch-wiki.info/wiki/User:Jammum
)? As it says  under the picture roughly towards the top of the page "The Jammum account is roughly abandoned" 
                        
Dude613 (talk | contribs) 19:14, 23 August 2020 (UTC) Sunday, Augest 23, 2020 3:13 PM
Hi there! Thanks for your concern! However, I believe what Jammum is saying there is that the Jammum Scratch account is abandoned; not the Jammum Scratch Wiki account. They are currently active on Scratch with the account SausageMcSauce, but you can't change your username on the wiki so they have to use Jammum here.
Also, we do not delete userpages if their owners are inactive. Thank you again for your concern, however! :)

Welcome Template/ new wikian notification

How do I get a welcome template to send to new users? How Do I Notified when A new wikian comes into The wiki?

          
Dude613 (talk | contribs) 19:25, 23 August 2020 (UTC) Sunday, August 23,2020 3:24 PM
First, you can create your welcome template on your userspace.
Second, you can't know because it's not added by current Wiki software.

How do I create a welcome template on my userspace? If I don't know how can I send a welcome template on time? How did you and Bigpuppy do it on time if you did't know I became a new user?
Dude613 (talk | contribs) 18:49, 24 August 2020 (UTC)

To add on to what Ahmetlii said:
  • After you've created your welcome template in your userspace, you can transclude it onto pages. For example, you could create User:Dude613/Welcome and then transclude it with {{User:Dude613/Welcome}}.
  • Although Ahmetlii was correct that you can't get notified when new user accounts are created, you can check the User Creation Log to see new user accounts. That log is also shown in Recent Changes.
Also, please indent your posts. For more information, see Help:Welcome/4#Indenting.
If you have any further questions, feel free to ask! :)

Page Deletion Discussion

If a page is in question as to whether it should be deleted or not, and no one has responded to the discussion except for the person who originally wanted it to be deleted in a while, can they close the discussion and give the page the deletion template? I thought you had to wait until there was discussion, but someone else thinks that they can do it if there isn't any discussion after a while. You can see the conversation here if you need more context: Talk:Shop (project).

I've never heard of {{NotUseful}} discussions "expiring," no. As far as I'm aware, there should be consensus. If users want to speed up the process, they can use tools such as the Discussion Invitation System to get more opinions. :)

{{#time: z}}

It seems like the {{#time: z}} function suddenly started counting from 1 instead of 0 (not just on the Scratch Wiki either). Now it says the day is 238. Is this just me? (For reference, the current day is 290)
Groko13 (talk | contribs) 00:25, 26 August 2020 (UTC)

I see it as 238 too. However, are you sure it's not just because the new UTC day started 25 minutes before you posted your message? :)

Multiple sandboxes?

Is it allowed to have multiple sandboxes? If it is how?
HacksonJackson (talk | contribs) 12:11, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

I am not Bigpuppy, but users can have multiple sandboxes in their userspace.
Jammum Icon.png Jammum (💬 Talk - ✍️ Contributions - 🐱 Scratch) 12:28, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
Jammum is correct — you are allowed to have multiple sandboxes in your userspace. For example, I have User:Bigpuppy/Sandbox, User:Bigpuppy/Sandbox 2, User:Bigpuppy/Sandbox 3, User:Bigpuppy/Sandbox 4, User:Bigpuppy/Sandbox 5, and User:Bigpuppy/Sandbox 6. You can create yours with the same naming convention (or any other naming convention of your choosing). :)

Naleksuh

Hey bigpuppy! So Naleksuh seems to be making some edits and I want to know why s/he has no userpage. I also question some of the edits. One of the edits was for a talk page about the motor () position block, s/he redirected it to a nonexistent talk page.
HacksonJackson (talk | contribs) 18:59, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

The redirect was caused by some page moves, but shouldn't exist and has now been tagged for deletion. Creating a userpage is optional and not required, so I hope there is no problem by my not having one.

Camp (disambiguation)

A little while ago I created a disambiguation page for the word "Camp", but when you look up "Camp" it doesn't go straight to the page. How do I make it go to the disambiguation page instead of the search results page?

It has been done - Camp had to redirect there.

Scratch Camp: Scratch The Musical

I've been working on creating a page about Scratch Camp: Scratch The Musical for the last couple hours, and when I tried to save the page it said that there was an edit conflict and "#REDIRECT [[Scratch Camp: Scratch the Musical]]". Should I replace the text on that page with my code?
Illusion705's User Logo1.png   Illusion705 talk | contribs  22:00, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

Hi! Naleksuh already created the page at Scratch Camp: Scratch the Musical. You can add the content to that page if you would like. :)

Where is exactly the sandbox?

Hi, I'm a new Wikian. I would like to know where exactly the sandbox is? There's two - the "Wiki Sandbox" at S:SAND and "Your Sandbox" at Special:MyPage/Sandbox. Which is the correct one?
4096bits (talk | contribs) 14:45, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

Scratch_Wiki:Sandbox Is the public one. Special:MyPage/Sandbox is actually YOUR personal sandbox, so i guess both
LankyBox01 (talk | contribs) 15:16, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
As per LankyBox01. Special:MyPage/Sandbox simply redirects you to the /Sandbox subpage of your userpage. :)

I'd do so here or on another EW/admin's talk but the user is a semi-RC stalker and I'd also be naming-and-shaming.
Garnet.gif garnetluvcookie  talk  contribs  directory  19:45, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

Please use the "report" button on the problematic revision(s). If it's not related to a specific revision, an option is to click "report" on a problematic revision by the user and explain the situation in the report reason. Thanks for helping keep the Scratch Wiki a great place to contribute! :)

If someone could gather enough info on a specific topic, are they allowed to create their own Wiki Page or no?

You can make a wiki page at any time as long as if follows the guidelines. As time goes on, you'll find more information and be able to add more things.
