Please do not "name and shame"

Hi, I had to delete your article List of Fame Preventions for two reasons. 1. It's not a particularly notable topic to include in the first place, and definitely not worthy of its own page. 2. More importantly, you were naming specific users and calling them out for bad behavior. This goes against the Community Guidelines and is not allowed on Scratch. If you think a user is doing something that they should not be, please report relevant content, and use the Contact Us page to contact the Scratch Team if there is something that can't be attached to an individual comment/project/forum post/etc. or there is otherwise a larger pattern. Thank you!

Please stop misusing the "redirect" template

Hi CodeLearnerSai,

In a few edits you've made recently, you have added {{redirect}} to the top of an article, but the first argument is the same name as the article (for example, in this edit, you used {{redirect|<Argument>}} on the Argument article itself). Please only use the {{redirect}} template if something actually redirects there, not to distinguish it from something else with a similar name. In that case, {{about}} or {{confused}} is the appropriate template to use. Thank you!
jvvg (talk | contribs) 01:06, 5 April 2021 (UTC)

Also, the {{other version}} template exists specifically for the case when we have multiple articles for the same thing in different versions of Scratch. Please do not replace {{other version}} with {{about}} when the purpose is to clarify which version the article refers to.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 01:31, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
Also, {{obsolete feature}} is the appropriate template for features in older versions that have been superseded, do not use {{about}} for that.

Please do not create articles about Scratchers, projects, studios, etc.

Hi,

I had to delete an article you created because it was about a Scratcher. Wiki policy explicitly prohibits creating articles about user-generated content (with a few exceptions). Please do not create any such articles in the future.

Thank you!

Please do not remove others' messages

Hi,

I recently undid your edit where you removed talk page messages with the message "I rejected everything". Per the userspace policy you are only allowed to remove others' talk page messages from your own talk page if they are obviously violating the Community Guidelines, they are bot messages, or you are moving them to an archive. While some of the messages you deleted were bot messages, you also deleted several human messages (all left by me), and none of them violated the Community Guidelines.

Also, please take these talk page messages seriously. You can't "reject" them, as I am informing you of Wiki policies and how they apply to various edits you're making.

Please respond to this message indicating you read it. Thank you.

Please remember to sign your posts

Hello, I'm WikiMonitor, a bot that patrols the Recent Changes. This is just a friendly reminder that it appears you forgot to sign your post in revision 278564 of User talk:Jvvg. Please fix this by adding four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your post to insert your signature and remember to sign your posts in the future. Signing your posts is important as it allows other Wikians to see who made a post. Thanks!

Note: if you were making an edit to a talk page that wasn't actually a message, in the future you can mark it as minor to avoid a notification.

Please do not create spam pages

Hi,

I had to delete your page [removed by myself upon further reading] since the page seemed to be a spam article. It linked to a bunch of userpages (that had no obvious connection to the title) and an April Fools' page. Please respond to this message indicating you read it. You have continued editing and have not responded to my previous message. If you continue editing without confirming reading this message, you risk having your account blocked.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 21:42, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Given the content you put on your userpage, the page was intended to attack another user. Per the message below this one, that is not acceptable.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 21:49, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Do not attack other Scratchers

I have already notified you earlier not to "name and shame" as that is against the Scratch Community Guidelines, and I just undid an edit to your userpage where you continued to do so. While userpages are not subject to Wiki guidelines in relation to content, they are still subject to Scratch Community Guidelines. Please follow these talk page messages and follow Wiki rules (which include the Community Guidelines for all pages, including userpages and April Fools pages). This is your final warning.

About 1

Hi,

Three times now, you have edited the 1 article to redirect to Scratch 1.0 and Scratch 1.x and either I or someone else has reverted it. The reason I reverted it (and presumably the reason TenType reverted it as well) is that "1" could refer to any of the Scratch 1.x versions (Scratch 1.0, Scratch 1.1, and so on).

We encourage you to be bold, we do have a "Bold, Revert, Discuss" policy that basically means if you make an edit and it is reverted (provided some justification is given for the revert), discuss the edit in the relevant location (in this case, it would be on the talk page) before putting it back. Otherwise, this risks creating what's called an "edit war," where people keep reverting each other. In this case, if you had a reason Scratch 1.0 would be a better redirect target than Scratch 1.x, you could have explained it there so everyone else could understand the motivation behind your edit.

Userspace

Hi,

I deleted the userpage that you created for Will_Wam, as per the userspace policy you are not allowed to edit (or create) other users' userpages without permission. Please make sure to follow the userspace policy going forwards and not edit or create others' userpages without their permission.

Please don't make several edits in a short amount of time

Hello, I'm WikiMonitor, a bot that patrols the Recent Changes. This is just a friendly reminder that you should try to avoid making a lot of edits to one page in a short amount of time. Specifically, you made a lot of edits (6 in the last hour) to Scratch Wiki:April Fools/Set Pen Color to () (color input block) recently. Please use the "Show preview" button before submitting edits to prevent this in the future. Thanks!

Administrator and Bureaucrat Noticeboards

Hi there! Thanks for your contributions to the wiki. I just wanted to let you know that I deleted Scratch Wiki:Bureaucrat Noticeboard and Scratch Wiki:Administrator Noticeboard because we already have facilities for requests for admin/bureaucrat action (namely S:CPSYS and the report feature for sensitive requests). That said, if you still think there is a good use for these pages, please discuss them on the CP before creating them, as they involve a fairly significant change to our current process. Thank you for understanding. :)

Protecting your userpage

Hi there!
I saw the {{protect}} template you added to your userpage. New Wikians are already prevented from editing userpages that don't have {{open userpage}} on them, so protecting your userpage for Wikians and up would be redundant. Because of this, I will refrain from protecting your userpage. Thanks for your contributions to the wiki! :)
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk ▪︎ contribs 16:20, 15 August 2021 (UTC)

As per this post and Scratch Wiki:Userspace#Others' userspace, I have added cat=no to the template on your userpage. :)

Please do not unnecessarily try to move pages

Hi,

It appears you have triggered our filters a number of times in trying to unnecessarily move pages. A few examples include:

Please do not abuse page moving and only move pages when there is a legitimate reason to do so. Thanks!

I was only testing.

These actions are blocked for a reason. Please stop wasting time "testing" them and focus on constructively contributing to the Wiki instead. Continuing to push boundaries like this will most likely result in a block.

Please do not create templates without community input

Hi,

I recently deleted your template Scratch Team Image because it was created without any community consensus or immediate use case. I have also deleted a few other templates you have created in the past, such as Cloud Data Image. In general, please do not create templates without getting community consensus first. For example, even bigpuppy, an administrator, got community consensus before creating the {{resolved}} and {{unresolved}} templates.

Note that this does not apply to pages. However, for pages still please do consider carefully if they fit the Wiki Guidelines and serve a useful purpose, and ask on the Community Portal if you are unsure.
