Email address confirmation failed

The title says it all, when I pressed the link it said: "Invalid confirmation code. The code may have expired.". Can this be because of IP addresses (again)? It can't be expired, it doesn't until October. Thanks!

Odd. I'm not bigpuppy, but I'll test it to see if it's a glitch with the system or just you. For now, try to resend again or use a VPN to resend :)

garnetluvcookie (talk | contribs) 12:42, 27 September 2020 (UTC)
Of course you're not, did I send some sort of message to you by accident? Sorry then! And it really was because of my IP address, I read the message from my tablet instead of my PC, so when I resent it I read the email on my PC and it worked! It wasn't because of my country, it was because of the different device, thanks for the help!

How to Make a Small Signature?

Hi. I Need Help Making a small Siggy! =

K02119 Logo.gif K02119 | My Userpage | My Talk Page | My Sandbox | My 75 Contribs

I can help. To shorten the sig length, use <scratchsig>K02119</scratchsig> or remove the "My" from all links and make your username link to your userpage.

Signature

Hi, I made a signature at User:Leahcimto/Signature and then made User:Leahcimto/minisig and updated my preferences, but my signature did not update. Do you know why this is and how I can get it to update? I followed the directions at S:SIG.
Leahcimto (talk | contribs) 19:17, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

How do you sign? Do you sign with the 4 tildes (~) or are you using <scratchsig>? The tildes is what you should use when you use a custom sig.

How Do i make a "this page is ___ bytes" thing!

i really need help
-unsigned comment by K02119 (talk | contribs)

Hi! According to the MediaWiki documentation, you can use the magic word {{REVISIONSIZE}}; for example, this page is 24436 bytes. The page I linked has helpful information about other magic words as well. :)

Updating Image

I created a new version of https://en.scratch-wiki.info/wiki/File:Create_a_cloud_variable.png to update it, but it looks like it might be protected because there isn't a button for me to upload a new version of it. Why is it protected? Could you unprotect it briefly so that I can update it and then you can protect it again (if you think it still needs to be protected)? Thanks :)
Illusion705's User Logo1.png   Illusion705 talk | contribs  23:13, 29 September 2020 (UTC)

Hi there! It isn't actually protected; as it says on the file description page, it is "from a shared repository and may be used by other projects." These files are a bit confusing, but it needs to be updated here, on the test wiki: tw:File:Create a cloud variable.png However, most users here (including me, currently) don't have accounts on the test wiki, so I'm not sure how much benefit there is to having it only be able to be updated there. I think you may want to just create a new file and replace the mainspace use(s) of the old file with the new one. Does that sound good to you? :)
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk β–ͺ︎ contribs 23:24, 29 September 2020 (UTC)

As said in the CP, you can use span stylings with the CSS attribute of color. You could also use {{link attributes}}

Update "Scratch Wiki" page

Should we add that the Wiki was updated to MediaWiki 1.35 yesterday under "History"? I can't of course because it's protected. :( Also, these updates look really cool! I like the new buttons and tabs in preferences :)
4096bits PFP New.png 4096bits | Talk | 774 Contribs 11:41, 30 September 2020 (UTC)

Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk β–ͺ︎ contribs 20:56, 30 September 2020 (UTC)

Anyway to do this?

Hi! I have gotten pretty familiar with the wiki, but I have one question about it. Is there anyway that on User:Leahcimto/Header I can make is so that on every page I put it on the "Welcome to this page!" changes to "Welcome to my talk page" or "Welcome to my userpage!" depending on what page it is on. Thanks!
Leahcimto scratch profile picture.png leahcimto talk β€’ contribs β€’ profile 21:22, 30 September 2020 (UTC)

Yes, there should be....
Check out mw:Help:Parser functions in templates. These are if statements so you can check what namespace it is.
Help:Magic words#Namespaces will have the variables used so you can check the namespaces.
I'm not sure if this actually works... but you can check in your sandbox or the wiki sandbox
I'm going to go check it out on my sandbox though
12944qwerty Logo.png 12944qwerty  Talk  Contribs  Scratch  21:34, 30 September 2020 (UTC)

Here is an example in my sandbox! You can expand on it to do what you want.... User:12944qwerty/Sandbox1
12944qwerty Logo.png 12944qwerty  Talk  Contribs  Scratch  23:46, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
Oh, if you want multiple options, instead of doing multiple if statements, you can use a switch statement. A great example using this switch statement is Bigpuppy's Tip of the day!
12944qwerty Logo.png 12944qwerty  Talk  Contribs  Scratch  23:50, 30 September 2020 (UTC)
Ok, so I added a switch statement in User:Leahcimto/Header, but what do I type no my pages the get the header with the switch? When I type {{User:Leahcimto/Header}}?
Leahcimto scratch profile picture.png leahcimto talk β€’ contribs β€’ profile 21:02, 1 October 2020 (UTC)
You'll be fine! Test it out. Transclusion allows for the templates' variables to be of the page you have transcluded to.

userpage

Bigpuppy I think you should make the color of the word "Expand" on the archive section and the word "Collapse" on the Reminders section, darker. The color of the above mentioned words are too light.


Dude613 (talk | contribs) 18:49, 6 October 2020 (UTC)

I believe that bigpuppy's using the {{collapse top}} and {{collapse bottom}} templates. In order to change the color, you'd need to change the template which would change everywhere it is used.
12944qwerty Logo.png 12944qwerty  Talk  Contribs  Scratch  20:29, 6 October 2020 (UTC)
I'm not actually using the {{collapse top}} and {{collapse bottom}} templates there; I'm using the mw-collapsible class in the tables. Dude613, the reason the contrast isn't good is because the default color of the top of tables changed with the MediaWiki upgrade. I'm not sure whether I would be able to change the color of the "Expand" and "Collapse" text, though I might be able to. Anyway, I would probably opt for changing the color of the top of the table (there's probably a way to do that) instead. I might do that eventually. Thank you for the suggestion! :)

I don't really know what else to tell you. The email will be sent to the email address you listed. While occasionally they get lost, it's rare, and you can always go to preferences to re-send. Do make sure to check your spam folder though.

A Few Questions

Hello Bigpuppy! I was wondering a couple of things. First of all, how can I put a line's spacing between the table of contents and the first message I received on my talk page here. I also was trying to edit something and all the black text on my talk page turned orange. Lastly, when I'm uploading a file, I get this message- "The action you are attempting was automatically blocked. Please read the message below for details on why.

You must enter a comment when uploading a new version of a file or editing a file page. You must also include a category when uploading new files."

I'm not sure what this means or how to "enter a comment". Thank you, I'm still grasping some knowledge on how to do things on the Wiki.
J_Coder26 (talk | contribs) 03:48, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi! For the table of contents thing, just add a blank line between the line with __TOC__ and the line with the start of the talk page message.
As for the colored text, that's probably because you have an unclosed instance of <span style="color:#ffbb00;font-family:Arial"> in the code of your header, and an unclosed instance of <span style="color:#f0bc02"> in the code of your talk page. You need to close these with </span>. :)
Finally, for the image uploading issue, you weren't able to upload the file because you either didn't enter anything in the "Summary" box while uploading, or you didn't include a file category (see Help:Categories for more information).
Feel free to ask me if you have any further questions. :)
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk β–ͺ︎ contribs 18:23, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
Ok! Thank you! I was able to fix the 1st and 3rd issues, as for the 2nd one, I am still a bit confused. So, where does the </span> go in the code? I understand I need to close it but I tried doing <span style="color:#f0bc02"/span> and <span style="color:#f0bc02"></span> but neither of them worked. Could you rewrite the code I need to do, please? :)
J_Coder26 (talk | contribs) 21:20, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
It looks like you already edited User:J Coder26/Navigation, so now you just need to insert a </span> tag where I inserted one in this image (see the location of the red arrow). :)
