Tip of the Week

When you need file a that is a sprite's costume, right click the costume in the costumes pane and click "export". This way it is transparent. If you need it to be a certain file type, use CloudConvert to convert it to any file extension. From there, you can use TinyPNG to compress it.

All Aboard!

Hai! Hello and welcome to the English Scratch wiki, EIephant_Lover! I’m asqwde. First of all I would like to say congrats on getting accepted. Welcome to the community!
If you need help with the wiki here is a link to a cheat sheet :) It explains different tools that will help you on the wiki and I hope you find it useful. I know I had many questions when I joined so if you have any questions, don’t be scared to ask on my talk page or on the Community Portal.

That’s all for now, Wiki On!

Welcome!

Kenny2scratch logo.jpgWelcome to the Scratch Wiki! I look forward to the useful edits you'll make and hope you'll have fun here. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me on my talk page, where you can talk about the Wiki or even ask personal questions! If you need quick help with wiki markup, take a look at Scratch Wiki:Cheatsheet. You might want to go to Category:Articles to Expand to find pages that need editing. I get my inspiration from Special:RecentChanges however, so looking at that helps too. See you around, EIephant_Lover;

Ahh, I see, that's a capital i and not a lowercase L. Who're you impersonating? ;)

Hehe, yes, it does have a capital "i". I didn't mean to impersonate anyone; the username [1] was already taken when I made my account. The thing is, they are a spam account that hasn't followed anyone, been followed by anyone, curated/followed any studios, favorited any projects, shared any projects, edited their about me/what I'm working on, or changed their profile picture. I can't change my username, so that's what I'm stuck with :)

Try to use edit summaries

Hi there! I see that you're making a lot of edits - great! Thing is, when I look at the recent changes, I can't see at a glance what you're doing. Could you try using edit summaries? Edit summaries are small messages you can attach to your edits, which show up in page history and on the recent changes, and they let other people quickly see what the edit changed.

To add an edit summary, before saving a page:

  1. Type a short description of your edit into the box conveniently labelled "Summary:".
  2. If the edit was a small edit, like a grammar or spelling fix, you can also check the box that says "This is a minor edit", which will add a label that says the edit was minor.
  3. After doing that, click "Show preview" to check that your edit looks the way it's supposed to,
  4. Then click "Save page".

Thanks!

About your sidebar hover text

I noticed it gave credit to "bigpuppy and whoever she credits" - do you know for sure that bigpuppy is female? If not, it's best to use "they" instead. Thanks.

Please do not edit other users' messages

Hi there! I noticed you changed someone's message here. Even if someone makes a typo, please don't edit other users' messages unless something about the message breaks the Community Guidelines. For more information, see Scratch Wiki:Userspace#User talk pages. Thank you! :)

Aww man. I forgot about that. I saw the typo and it bothered me ._. Sorry, won't do that again. Thanks for the message, though!
EIephant_Lover (talk | contribs) 19:10, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
Thank you; if you wouldn't mind, could you please change it back? (It's probably fine if you're changing it back to what it used to be.) I don't want to edit the message, but I don't want to undo your edit since you also left a message in it. :P

You don't need to add a space before signatures

Yo, I noticed on my talk page that you did this:

Message
 ~~~~

in two places. There's no need to actually add that space before your signature (or to put it on a new line at all) - you can just do this instead:

Message~~~~

And the signature will indent along with the message. Get it?

05:15, 31 July 2018 (UTC)

Okay, I'm sorry! I just usually click the signature button at the bottom and it does that, I'll try to fix that :P
EIephant_Lover (talk | contribs) 15:16, 31 July 2018 (UTC)
The button at the bottom? Which one? None of the ones I just tried did that.
Kenny2scratch logo.jpg kenny2scratch  Talk  Contribs  Directory 
15:45, 31 July 2018 (UTC)
I usually forget, and when I go back in to edit it automatically creates a new line. I click the four... um... what are they called? These: ~ ~ ~ ~. So when it creates the new line I don't even notice :/
EIephant_Lover (talk | contribs) 15:57, 31 July 2018 (UTC)
They're called tildes, and ahh I see. Well, remembering to sign is the best way forward then, but just FYI you don't need to put a space before them either - just sign off like ...message~~~~ and boom:

About my name

I got a Minecraft account in 2014. At the time, I didn't have any qualms with "Kenny", so I named myself "Kenny2minecraft", as a combination of my being "Kenny2" (there is already a Kenny in my family) and the notion of me somehow going "to" Minecraft. (By the way, I don't go by "Kenny2Scratch" - the S is not capitalized.)

A year later, however, I went to Beach Week, my annual family reunion. There, I was confused with my cousin all the time - "Kenny!" someone would shout. I wouldn't respond, but then they'd get angry at me because they thought I was Kenny, not Ken. I came to associate anger with the name.

It's been three years now, though. Most of that association has died down. However, I still insist on being called "Ken" or my full username because I hate getting confused with my cousin. More recently, it's kind of been my symbolic irrationalism - it's my thing that I have a username with "Kenny2" in it but I hate being called Kenny - and a measure of how well someone knows me: if they remember who I am, they'll remember to call me Ken and not Kenny.

I don't want to lose my token, nor do I want to lose my measure of recognition. Therefore, I keep it this way.

P.S. You've just received a more detailed reason for my situation than any other person alive.
Kenny2scratch logo.jpg kenny2scratch  Talk  Contribs  Directory 
04:19, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

Wow, that's actually a quite well-written story. I apologize for capitalizing the "S".

P.S. What an honor (no kidding)! I can sort of relate, though not so deeply. I honestly hate be called by a nickname besides by a select few people, and I ignore people who call me by a nickname (besides those people). Also, I have trouble when calling people by a nickname I haven't heard before, or if I've only heard the nickname then it's hard for me to use the real name.

ATM

In the scuba diving world (and science) one ATM stands for one Atmosphere of pressure. :P

Links to Images

On my talk page, you left some images and said you don't know how to make image links. To make a link to a file or category page, just put a colon (:) before the page name. [[File:Example.jpg]] makes Example.jpg, and [[:File:Example.jpg]] makes File:Example.jpg.

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 User:EIephant Lover/Welcome By EIephant Lover recently. Please use the "Show preview" button before submitting edits to prevent this in the future. Thanks!

About your welcome template

You can use the magic word {{ROOTPAGENAMEE}} to automatically insert the username in your welcome template! It's kind of a hack - what that magic word actually produces is the root page name (for example, "Welcome" on "Template:Welcome/doc") of the page. On a user talk page, the root page name is the username of the user who owns it! Also, the extra "E" at the end of "ROOTPAGENAMEE" means to URL-encode the name - this simply involves replacing spaces with underscores, which better represents the Scratch username. Get it?

03:37, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

Thanks so much :) I'll put it in the template, but I don't know if it's such a good idea I try to use it anymore...
EIephant_Lover (talk | contribs) 17:15, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

Fixes to your welcoming template.

There is a bug in your welcoming template — you forgot the closing div! Just look on RonTheNerd's page.
12944qwerty Logo.png 12944qwerty  Talk  Contribs  Scratch  05:01, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

I've fixed it myself - it's not really acceptable to break every talk page you put the template on. You can take a look at the diff to see what I changed, so that you can avoid the mistake in the future.

05:04, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
AHHH I'M REALLY SORRY ;-; I didn't realize it was breaking stuff. Thanks so much for fixing it. I totally regret it *cringes* I didn't mean to break anything, I promise! Maybe I should just stick to editing...

Your siggy br0nk

Hi, take a look at this: User:Kenny2scratch/Sandbox#For EIephant_Lover

See the problem? That's being caused by the newline between the last line of your actual signature and the opening <noinclude> tag. Basically, move the opening noinclude tag to the end of the previous line, and it'll be fixed. Thanks!
