Hi, that's fine! However, there's just two things: first of all, you might want to update it since it looks exactly like mine, if you want to keep it that way it's okay though. Second of all, your status leads to the status on my page. I'll update my status now to show you. Look on my header and then onto yours.

I'm probably going to leave

I'm heavily considering leaving the Wiki. I probably won't check here often, so if you really need to message me do it on my profile.

I just keep messing stuff up here, and I don't really make helpful edits (a lot of them get reverted). I don't think the one time I would notice a comma out of place is worth the ruining ten other pages. I'm probably still going to check often at the beginning, but as time goes on I'll check less and less. And I won't be trying to make any big edits. also apparently uploading a lot of files at once is frowned upon...

I was thinking over it some more and maybe I'll take a break instead, for like a month or so, or maybe longer, I don't know. When I come back I'll just only do mainspace edits that I'm sure of, only occasionally ask about doing stuff on talk pages/the CP, and yeah, just little stuff if I notice it.

Yay! Glad to here you won't be leaving for too long, keep up the good work while you do come online! :D

Hey

I didn't mean to be so harsh with you about the blocks (in retrospect, "I'm very disappointed" was a terrible thing for me to say) - I only saw your userspace blocks library after seeing your talk page edit. Messing up once isn't a good reason to leave, especially since your edits really haven't been as destructive as you seem to think. Also, looking through your contribs, it seems to me that a majority of your edits have been constructive - you're really better than you think you are, and you're putting too much blame on yourself. Don't leave just because of this!

Some advice, if I will - for your block library, you really can still use scratchblocks - you could make a template for the gallery frame, and put scratchblocks inside that. However, there's no replacement for the "motion" blue dot or the folder with blocks (and those look really cool, good work!), so keep those :)

I hope you know what I'm trying to say here :þ

Hey, it's alright. I'm not leaving because of you, or because of the blocks thing, it's just that I feel like when I try to do something that isn't just correcting some little error, I just seem to get it wrong (like the whole thing with the welcome templates). Maybe I'll just take a break for a while, come back some time in the future. Also, thank you for the compliments about the blocks. :) I think that when I do come back, I'll try to do more mainspace edits and not userspace/talk pages, since that seems to be where I run into problems. And about you not seeing the blocks library, if I remember correctly, I uploaded the two files, asked the question, then uploaded the rest and then put them in the library. I only uploaded them to put them in the library but since the library didn't exist yet it isn't your fault you didn't see it. I'm sorry if I made you feel bad - I'm not trying to, I know you didn't mean any harm, you were just trying to keep the Wiki professional.
I was making the library like an art library sort of thing, not just putting all the blocks in a gallery if that's what you meant. I may be misunderstanding you though :P

Messing up is totally OK! What matters is that you learn how not to do it again. For example, the welcome templates - now that you know what's wrong, you can be more careful when making further changes.
As for the chronology, you may have asked the question only after uploading a couple of files, but I only came around to patrolling later, and I saw your question before I saw your page - I patrol from oldest to newest. Hope that clears it up.
Mainly, I don't want to lose activity from one of the few active, helpful editors. Don't go! :P

Okay :) I'm going to start taking my break after I try to fix all of these block pages. A lot of them still use 2.0 blocks and one thing I noticed is a lot of this:
  • point in direction (90 v) — Wrong input type on 90
  • point in direction (90) — Right version, use "(90)", not "(90 v)"
  • <key [space v] pressed?> — Wrong input type on space
  • <key (space v) pressed?> — Right version, use "(space v)", not "[space v]"
  • switch costume to [costume1 v] — Wrong input type on costume1
  • switch costume to (costume1 v) — Right version, use "(costume1 v)", not "[costume1 v]"

Also, the default values aren't showing up in the block images on their pages. Is that a bug?

The implied meanings of [square bracket menus v] vs (round bracket menus v) changed in 3.0 scratchblocks - in 2.0, square bracket menus mean just a dropdown, which may or may not accept blocks dragged into it; round bracket menus mean a number input that can also be dropped down. In 3.0, square bracket menus mean a dropdown that does not accept blocks dragged into it; round bracket menus mean a dropdown that does accept blocks dragged into it.
Additionally, the <key ( v) pressed?> block in particular actually changed between 2.0 and 3.0 - in 3.0, blocks can be dragged into the menu, while in 2.0 they could not.
Default values are unnecessary on block pages, I think, though there's no harm in including them.
Thanks for finding all this! Feel free to update things wherever you see fit.

Basically Back

I think I'm okay now to be back.

I'm still only going to do little edits and updates, so I probably won't be doing a whole lot of userspace stuff anymore.

So yeah.

File compressed

If you're here to tell me "don't upload files that don't need compressed, especially just 1 byte" I already know, and I'm sorry. So no need to tell me that.

About your upload on File:File.png

You really don't need to make a new version of a file just to get the size down by one byte.
