My name is Dazman. I am a fairly knowledgeable scratcher so feel free to ask me anything! I am a fairly new contributor to the wiki ,but I am still more experienced than you think. You should leave me a comment. After all I:

  • Create Navigation Bars for Wiki Contributors
  • Create Userboxes
  • Give Constructive Criticism on Projects
  • Fix Glitches in Games
  • Remix Projects (Maybe you'll get front-paged :D)
  • Create Basic Digital Images and Animated Icons.
  • Write new Wiki Articles
  • And More!

So drop me a comment! Even if you don't know what to say just leave a comment. Maybe you could tell me how good my projects are or that I need to fix a mistake I made in an article.

Hi!

It's great that you're creating lots of new articles! However, unfortunately, I deleted your Fibonacci article because I felt it didn't have enough to do with Scratch. Your other tutorial articles are brilliant though! I did have to change the title of "Planetary Gravity" to "Simulating Gravity," because the scripts don't necessarily have to apply to planets, since other things can have gravity as well. And one last thing, I also had to delete that redirect that you created to your userpage, because unfortunately it is not allowed.

Also, you should probably get a signature, so people know who you are on talk pages and such. To do that create a new page called User:Dazman/Signature (just click on that link and edit the page) and insert <scratchsig>Dazman</scratchsig>, and your username and your user icon that you use on the main Scratch Website will appear as your signature. To insert a signature just put four tildes (~~~~) at the end of any post.

I hope you carry on creating useful articles and stay on the wiki! :)

To clear things out, new users do NOT need a signature page anymore. We only asked to change the old signature pages to the new ones to match the style. I'm deleting Dazman's Signature page; you should just post ~~~~ at the end of every post and it'll turn into a signature automatically :)
JSO (talk | contribs) 13:00, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

You're an awesome editor!

I've seen the articles you've been creating - you're putting a lot of good work into them! :) Great job! :D

Signatures on articles

You've been doing great work here, so don't feel bad - there's just one thing I noticed: signatures (those things with four tildes, ~~~~) are for talk pages, not articles. When contributing information, it belongs to the wiki - no user can claim that the work is theirs and sign it thus.
Chrischb (talk | contribs) 06:22, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

Oh sorry. I'm new at this so I didn't know. I was just following the advice of other administrators that I should put those tildas at the end. I didn't realize that they only meant the talk page. Thanks for the info.

Categorizing things

You're a really good editor and I'm really happy that you're staying here!!! :D :D :D But since you're staying (or I hope you are xD), I thought I'd tell you about categories: Categories are things that we put in all articles, files and categories (yeah, categories are categorized :P). For example, the Blocks article is categorized under the category Scratch Program, and Project Statistics is categorized under Scratch Website. Categories help keep everything neat - for example, you could look through the Scratch Website category and find all the stuff related to it.

To categorize things, do [[Category:CATEGORY NAME]]. (Just put that at the bottom of the article/file/category's code.) Before you start categorizing things, take a look at Special:Categories to see what categories there are. If you want to create a new category, that's fine, but don't forget to categorize it too! ;)

Remember: All articles, files and categories should be categorized. Oh, not the category Scratch Wiki; that's the root category and is at the top.

:)
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 06:44, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

Oh sorry... Ill keep that in mind!
Dazman (talk | contribs) 06:58, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
Why are you saying sorry? :P
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 22:42, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
No reason... I just like to do things the right way.
Dazman (talk | contribs) 02:18, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
BTW Jon, Blocks is categorized under Blocks and Lists.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 13:05, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
And dazman, you should have written "I'll" do mean "I will" not "ill" like you're sick. ;) (Yeah, grammar. :P)

links

You know you can make a link by just doing [[link place|link name]] and it comes out link name. I think it looks better than external links, especially when it is internal.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 14:24, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Yeah I know I just prefer to do external links a lot of the time because i just copy and paste the URL. With internal links you have to have proper capitalization and spacing and stuff. Copy and pasting a URL is easier. I can just leave it to you to fix them ;). Don't worry about my knowledge of the wiki though. I've been here for a while so i know a lot about it if you cant tell from my user page. I'm just a little lazy XD. Thanks for your concern though.
Dazman (talk | contribs) 15:24, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
So I'm allowed to edit it for that?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 15:28, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
Well if your changing my external links to internal, You should definitely do that.
Dazman (talk | contribs) 00:34, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Minor Edits

The edits you are doing right now (removing spaces) are minor. Please click minor edit. Thanks! :)
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 14:36, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Remembering to press the minor edit button is hard.
Dazman (talk | contribs) 17:09, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
For veggieman, NOT pressing is hard. :P
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 07:02, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Editing thebuilderdd's talk page

While it is good that you are concerned for the wiki, it seemed to me like thebuilderdd vandalized his talk page. As it says, Quote Icon.png Quote:

Author: Scratch Wiki:Guidelines#What to do when Spam or Vandalism Occurs
Text:  While you can use the Undo feature to revert edits, it is not a good idea if the vandalism is very large. Administrators can quickly revert edits with the rollback feature, so if the vandalism is severe, the best thing to do is ask an administrator to revert the edits. Also, because of the way that the rollback feature works, trying to deal with it yourself could make it harder for an admin to take care of the problem. 

You shouldn't have posted, rather, just undid or reported it. Thank you!
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 06:43, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Sorry. Its his talk page so I thought that "technically" it was his choice to remove it.
Dazman (talk | contribs) 17:20, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Categorization

Hey, don't forget to categorize everything you upload/create, including redirects. I assume you know how, as Jon told you already.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 06:43, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Yeah I know. Im a Princess... but I do try sometimes!
Dazman (talk | contribs) 17:18, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

get well soon

hope you're better soon! :]
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 18:03, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

I hope you do too. :)
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 18:15, 17 April 2011 (UTC)
Me too ^^ Don't feel guilty about not doing any edits - relax :P
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 01:01, 18 April 2011 (UTC)
Thanks Guys :D. I am feeling mostly better so I will resume editing.
Dazman (talk | contribs) 10:35, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

thx

For including me in your wiki friends. :)
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 18:45, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Your Welcome :). Right now I'm just testing it out. Im trying to find a way to get your user icon next to the box. I will be perfecting it when I have more time.
Dazman (talk | contribs) 05:39, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
You can do scratchsigs, as I show here.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 14:15, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
Great idea!
Dazman (talk | contribs) 22:50, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

Because we're not supposed to edit others' user pages. ;)

Could You Help Me?

Hey Dazman! I need help in a number of areas...

1. I need help getting used to the Scratch Wiki, I don't really know what to edit (except for the occasional spelling error...) and I feel that after a while, the Scratch Wiki will have no edit possibilities left...(except for new Scratch versions) How should I go about editing?

2. I sort of feel like the Scratch Website is taking up too much of my Scratch time...What would you recommend I do?

3. Personally I love maths, I am 14 also, and in year 9 (I am home-schooled like Scimonster) doing algebra...But I have no idea as to how to use maths in Scratch...
LordSydney (talk | contribs) 04:16, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

Yeah I'm not Dazman but meh :P
  1. TBH I don't really know what to edit anymore, and I've been like that for a few months xD I visit each day to check the talk pages though. (Yeah I do edit articles sometimes ^^)
  2. You could set a timer or something maybe? Or rushhhh through comments and such :P
  3. Programming in Scratch takes a lot of practice - I dunno, you'll probably get better as you go on ^^
    Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 06:47, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
Hey Lord Sydney. The simple answer to number one is, edit whatever you want. Although we have been running out of things to edit, there is always something left to add or fix. If you are bored of making minor corrections then top.
For two I would say that you balance your life. Find another hobby if you feel scratch takes too much time
Lastly, I feel that math is the centerpiece of programming. Without math, life as it is today would be impossible. Math can be integrated through variables, graphing, and more! With Math there is no limits to what it can be applied to.
Dazman (talk | contribs) 09:50, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
Thanks everyone but about the maths. I know it is important, but I have no idea how to implement it. Like Scimonster's workarounds with the lists and so on...
LordSydney (talk | contribs) 20:04, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
I don't know how I do those workarounds. :P
I find things to edit by going to this page usually.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 07:22, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

Lol

It's my brother's birthday today too!
