About your recent edit to Scratch Website (1.4) and Scratch Website (Earlier Versions)

Hi! I saw you copied all the content from Scratch Website (1.4) to Scratch Website (Earlier Versions), leaving a redirect at (1.4). I just want to let you know that in the future, it's much better to use the "move" functionality instead. Here's what you could have done:

  1. On the 1.4 page, click the pencil icon, and choose "move".
  2. Enter the new title ("Scratch Website (Earlier Versions)").
  3. Leave the "leave a redirect behind" box checked.
  4. Click "Move".

Doing so will not only do exactly what you did with those two edits, but also move all the page history. I'll merge the history in now, but I just wanted to let you know that moving is a better way to... well, move content between titles. Thanks!

Welcome

RPP-Exploration Logo April2018.jpg

Congratulations on joining the Wiki!

Hi! Welcome to the Wiki of Scratch, CrazyBoy826! I’m RPP-Exploration.

When I joined the Scratch Wiki, I just couldn't get the language. To help me, I used this sheet of handy bits of code and what they do and I memorised all of the useful information I found. I also did something else which helped me the most: I asked other users.

If you want to ask me about anything or just feel like chatting, you can always message me on my talk page! I look forward to seeing all the great edits you make and hope you have lots of fun making them. That's all from me today - Wiki On!

"Upload Images" is an unneeded redirect

Hi. I saw you created "Upload Images" as a redirect to Special:Upload. I've also seen you going around and making tons of redirects. Usually your edit summary says it makes the Wiki "easier to use".

However, more redirects is not necessarily a good thing. Redirects are only used for one of two things. Either:

  1. the redirect title is likely to be searched up, or
  2. the redirect title is related to the redirect target in a non-obvious way.

I will likely be deleting more redirects once I get the time, but for now I just want to ask you to stop making unneeded redirects. Make sure that at least one of the conditions above applies any redirect you create.

Please do not edit other users' talk messages

In revision 197833 of my talk page, you modified another users' talk page message to fix a typo. However, editing other users' talk page messages is not allowed, even if you are just fixing a typo. The only exceptions to this are removing content that violates the Community Guidelines, adding a missing signature, or fixing something that's causing formatting problems (which includes adding indents).

Misspelling redirects are useless

Hi! I deleted "Studoi" because misspelling redirects are unnecessary in all ways. When making redirects, keep in mind the two criteria:

  1. Is the title likely to be searched for?
  2. Is the title related to another title in a way that is not obvious?

We don't expect people to type their search terms wrong and expect it to find an actual page. "Studoi" is also obviously related to "Studio". Therefore, it meets none of the criteria. Please remember those criteria when making redirects. Thanks.

Use talk page to discuss

You put some templates to pages - such as merge,move,or notuseful - but you didn't tell us why you put it. It is required to add comments to talk pages, because we cannot see inside your mind :P I reverted these as "no discussion at talk". When putting it again,read S:BRD carefully and discuss

Just a note

Are you going to make a page about messages? Then you can't because Messages and Notifications already exists.
Logo of Apple502j.jpg Apple502j Talk/Activities 2,109edit 01:18, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

This page is about the Messages website only. As a part of a project to add subpages to Scratch Website, this can't be done all in one computer visit. I'm saving it on that page so I won't lose it. These pages are only about the subsites, not the features. I'm constantly making improvements to them, so don't worry if they're not right yet.
CrazyBoy826 (talk | contribs) 01:24, 9 June 2018 (UTC)
Then please write at Messages and Notifications rather than making a new page.

That's too many redirects lol

You have a octuple redirect from "InProgress" to I don't even know - would you mind if I deleted them? And FYI nothing can be private here except deleted page revisions. It is impossible to prevent others from viewing a page. Your efforts are meaningless because Special:RecentChanges shows all the moves you used to try to conceal it.

Jeez, stop moving it around! Do you realize how difficult the cleanup is going to be?

I moved the eighth page to a page that was not one of the redirects. However, the redirects are still there. I will change the link at the bottom of my user page.

How to request a page be deleted

In the future, if you want a page deleted, just place {{delete}} on it rather than changing the title to "Admins, pelase delete this". Once you put the template on, we will delete it as soon as we see it. This way we don't have confusing entries in the move log and the page is still in your userspace when we delete it. Thanks!
jvvg (talk | contribs) 18:49, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

Speak of that, I'd better see if we do have many pages with the template.

Template dates

Just a small reminder: you don't need to add dates onto your templates. A bot will add that on for you ;)
border=3px Drunken Sailor [ Talk | Contribs | More... ] 20:29, 10 June 2018 (UTC)

It just works for me to add dates onto my templates becuase I don't have any dateless templates that bots have added dates to, and I don't want my talk page to get too big.

User categories

Unfortunately, you're not able to create user categories. Userpages shouldn't be in any category at all, actually.

You're actually not the second most active user

According to Special:ActiveUsers at the moment, I'm the most active, bigpuppy (talk | contribs) is second, and you're third. It's also best not to brag on your userpage about your activity. Could you please remove that? Thanks.

I deleted a redirect you made

Hi there! I deleted a redirect you made (Terms of use), since the Terms of Use and Community Guidelines on Scratch are different (for what the Terms of Use is, see Terms of Use). The reason I didn't just change the redirect to go to Terms of Use is that we're not supposed to make redirects that simply change if a letter is uppercase or lowercase from the original page. I hope you understand; if you still think it's needed, feel free to re-create the page. Thanks, and thanks for all your amazing contributions to the Scratch Wiki!
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk | contribs 17:41, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

Oh sorry. At the time, I didn't know about the terms of use page.

Can you please link the archives of your talk page?

Some people may want to refer to an old archive of your talk page, but they won't be able to find it. You can help people find it by linking it on your main talk page. P.S I know I'm not an Admin or Bureaucrat XD
BlueStarPort.png BlueStarPort (KJRYoshi07) (My Talk) (Contribs) 07:42, 18 June 2018 (UTC)

Yes, please do link to your talk page archives on the main talk page. You can take a look at anybody's talk page's source code to see how they do it.

Please stop making unnecessary redirects.

Hey. Just gonna ask you to stop making unnecessary, and/or obscure redirects. To be realistic, they are pretty annoying, and will not be used often, if at all, therefore rendering the redirect as unnecessary. Tip: If you don't think people are going to use the redirect often, consider it rendered unnecessary!
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,650)) 20:47, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

Now, I'm focusing more on the content pages instead of redirects. You won't see me make that many redirects anymore.

About your topic on blob's talk

Hi! I saw your topic on blob's talk page (linked in title). It's nice that you want to let blob know that what he wrote has problems, but there's a few problems with what you wrote too.

  • You're being very rude and borderline insulting when you point out the flaws.
    • "In the article you wrote, the language is hard to read, there is no clarity, and the formatting has been broken" - that's very offensive!
    • You then proceed to dryly list out problems with the article, half of which are invalid:
      • "At the bottom of each section, there is a space that looks like a talk page" - that's because it's supposed to be a mini-talk page! That space is there for people to discuss the bug.
      • "In the "::" syntax section, the explaining text just states that the "::" syntax doesn't work and nothing else, and the picture preview doesn't go much further" - that's because that bug was fixed years ago, and nobody updated that section.
      • "In the "If" section, the bug is untrue. You are supposed to use if () then. The "then" was added in Scratch 2.0." - that's because the bug was reported in the 1.4 days!
  • Blob's been inactive on here for a very long time. His last edit was in 2016.

Try to be nicer when you're letting people know some of the problems with what they've made! Instead of saying mean things like "your article is hard to read and it's broken and there's six more problems" say something like "your article looks really good! There's just a few problems I'd recommend you fix". Also, look into things more in-depth before you go yelling at people. Half of the flaws you gave were not flaws, and if you had read the article and tried to find out why they're incorrect before yelling at blob that it's incorrect, you'd have realized that it's just outdated.

So, I have a couple of recommendations for your future behavior:

  • Be more polite and, most importantly, nice when you're telling people about shortcomings.
  • Find out as much as you can before telling people what to do - there is almost certainly something that isn't obvious on the surface.

If you can't do that, then the Wiki might not be the best place for you. If you can, then please do! It'll make you be a lot friendlier, and consequently make you seem like a better person to approach for help or advice.

Hey. Just seeing the history of Template:Info, I noticed no Community Portal discussion about the template. In future, when creating templates, please discuss on the Community Portal first.

Notif

In your most recent edit, you attempted to edit the interface to the sandbox by replacing a part in the template. Remember that WikiMonitor actually clears the sandbox every four hours, so your edit will be rendered as disregarded.
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,650)) 16:59, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

Okay

Remember to give an example when adding a bug to Scratch Wiki:Block Plugin Bugs

In your most recent edit, you did not include an example in the bug you reported. Please provide an example, so we can see and figure out your bug. Thanks!
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,650)) 17:10, 30 June 2018 (UTC)

The bug is about lag, so I don't know a way to find an example.
CrazyBoy826-Icon.png CrazyBoy826 Talk | Contribs | Scratch account 17:31, 30 June 2018 (UTC)
Then please record the lag.

Your custom signature

After seeing your custom signature, I have a concern. It links to your userspace directory. This is not allowed. You are only allowed to link to your Scratch profile, your userpage, your talk page, your edits and your contributions. Thanks!

Uh I'm unsure.
Banana439monkey.png banana439monkey (Talk | Contribs | Scratch | Edits (2,650)) 17:16, 2 July 2018 (UTC)
I don't recall there being any rules about where you can link, beyond the normal userspace linking rules. IMO your sig linking to your userspace directory is fine.
