Why can't I upload an image?

I'm trying to upload an image but there is an error saying that "You must enter a comment when uploading a new version of a file or editing a file page. You must also include a category when uploading new files." but there is no image called "Scratch_Extension_Message.png". but I entered the comment AND the categorey so there must be an error. The size is not too big, neither is the length and width so I don't know why.
Marc92020 (talk | contribs) 19:51, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

Were you trying to upload a new file (using the upload page) or just edit the filepage for a file that didn't exist? If you did the former, did you make sure to enter the category in the summary box (and make sure to use proper category syntax, i.e. [[Category:Your Category Here]])?
jvvg (talk | contribs) 01:14, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
Yes I was using the upload page but i found no other version of "Scratch_Extension_Message.png" so i don't know why. There might be but it also said there was no comment even tho there was.
Marc92020 (talk | contribs) 16:01, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
I looked at the log, and the issue is you aren't entering the category properly. You'll notice that my previous comment had square brackets around the category name (like a wikilink), while you just said "Category:Scratch Website Images". This is not a bug, but the software properly detecting that you didn't include a category correctly.

You should always use "[[]]" when linking inside of the wiki.

About my scrolling page

Hi, so I noticed you deleted my Scrolling Engine page due to their already being something familiar to what I had done. Could I by any chance, add to the article Scrolling (Sprites) (I am still fairly new to this and I dunno how to make attached redirects, sorry). Could I take what I had done for my Scrolling Engine page and add everything I had done to the Scrolling (sprites) page?
StormMaker2395 (talk | contribs) 18:35, 5 January 2021 (UTC)

Yes, please do add to Scrolling (Sprites). I wasn't indicating that the contents of the article weren't useful, just that we didn't want to have two separate articles for the same thing. You can edit anything you see necessary. If you want, I can also give you a copy of the article you created so you can repurpose the content.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 20:08, 5 January 2021 (UTC)
no it's ok. I remember the things I put in the article I had made. Thank you though. I understood why it was deleted. I was just curious to know if I could add what I put on my article to Scrolling (Sprites) thats all.
StormMaker2395 (talk | contribs) 14:24, 6 January 2021 (UTC)
I added onto scrolling (sprites). I am sorry about creating a similar article and I will be more careful with this in the future, as I did with my AI article. Which btw... I am also sorry that that's not a well-sized page. I am new to this and am not sure how to write good article. Wait, is there a way you could show me how to write a good article?
StormMaker2395 (talk | contribs) 13:42, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
Probably looking at our existing articles is the best way to get a feel for what goes into a good article.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:11, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

I have a new JS file!

Lovecodeabc Links: talk | profile | contributions | directory 20:34, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

Cool. I actually use a similar userscript (which I cannot share per Scratch policy) for commenting responses when handling account requests.

WikiMonitor Alerted Me...

I was making some style edits to my User Talk page to make it look nicer like some others I've seen, but after I clicked save, WikiMonitor charged me for not signing my post, even though I didn't post; it's nothing too major but I just thought I should let you know that it falsely "accused" me (lol).
84375 (talk | contribs) 22:44, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

That is because edits to a talk page without a time-stamp are classified as "unsigned". To prevent this in the future, mark non-message edits on talk pages as minor.
Leahcimto scratch profile picture.png leahcimto talkcontribsprofile 22:51, 6 January 2021 (UTC)
Yes mark it as minor. also why are you talking in court language
Lovecodeabc Links: talk | profile | contributions | directory 23:03, 6 January 2021 (UTC)
Ah, ok, thank you, Leahcimto. And, Lovecodeabc, is there something wrong with the way that I phrased the above comment?
84375 (talk | contribs) 01:55, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
I think the way you phrased it was fine :)
Leahcimto scratch profile picture.png leahcimto talkcontribsprofile 22:31, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
Ok, I'm just not sure what they mean by "court language," but whatever. Thanks for the help, resolved.

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 270550 of User talk:Jvvg/sandbox. 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.

This message was sent by an automated bot run by jvvg. You can contact him on his talk page with any concerns.

Scratch Wiki:Flawed Article

You can remove the __TOC__ from the new 3.0 flawed article; I only added it so the table of contents wouldn't go before the single-‍= heading on the userspace version, and that heading is not part of the project space version.
Mlcreater (talk | contribs) 22:32, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

Yes Done
jvvg (talk | contribs) 22:35, 7 January 2021 (UTC)


I think you made a mistake with the archives at the top of this page; you put "Before January 4, 2020" instead of 2021 for the 20th one. :P

Could U help me with a big project?

I am working on a scratch game that runs primarily on Cloud Variables. Ya see, I am not good with Cloud and need BIG help. Is there any way you could work on the project with me? Mainly to assist me with anything cloud related
-unsigned comment by StormMaker2395 (talk | contribs)

Unfortunately I probably am not the best person for that. The only project I have built with cloud variables in several years was the high score in my lottery simulator. You can try posting in the help with scripts forum, and they may be able to help you there.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 16:05, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
could I ask you for help with a cloning error i have been asked to look at for someone?
StormMaker2395 (talk | contribs) 01:40, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
Again, Help with Scripts is probably the better place to go for that.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 03:47, 9 January 2021 (UTC)


I had an issue with WikiMonitor it's telling me I had to sign for a post when that post was on here, your talk thread... {{
StormMaker2395 (talk | contribs) 17:50, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

If you're talking about this edit, indeed you did not sign your post properly. You need to sign it with four tildes (~~~~) so that we know who wrote each post.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 21:01, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
No. It was talking about the one where I was asking you help with my big project

StormMaker2395 (talk | contribs) 23:46, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

That is the revision I linked to.

Sharing Accounts

This is one of the many questions I've asked so far, I apologize for the MANY questions, but is Sharing a scratch account bad? Like.... could me and another individual share one account to work on the same project?
StormMaker2395 (talk | contribs) 19:48, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

The Scratch Team discourages sharing accounts (that article also includes some alternatives to collaborate on a single project). On the Wiki, sharing an account is prohibited entirely.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 23:57, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

I can't login

Alright so, when I try to log into my scratch account, I'll type in my info and then click "sign-in". What'll happen is the "Sign In" button will display a loading circle (idk what to actually call it) and then the button will go back to say "Sign in" and the page won't reload with me in my account. It happens when I try to log into my alt as well
StormMaker2395 (talk | contribs) 01:53, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Unfortunately I can't really help you with that. The only thing I can think of off the top of my head are try using an incognito window/private window/whatever your browser's equivalent is.

pfp issue

I want to change my profile picture to a gif but when I do and go to a studio with a cover thats the same as what I changed my profile picture to or refresh the page, its reverting my profile picture back to the image before the gif.
StormMaker2395 (talk | contribs) 14:55, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

ok, its not letting me change it at all.
StormMaker2395 (talk | contribs) 15:03, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
Your ScratchSig image doesn't always update immediately due to caching. However, if you give it long enough it will update.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 16:05, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
Alright, thanks I was just confused because I went to update my profile picture and after every refresh it displayed an old picture and this has never been an issue in the 6 some-odd years i've been on scratch

WikiMonitor alert

WikiMonitor warned me for editing my (own) sandbox to many times. Should I just ignore it?
Joshuabirger (talk | contribs) 15:01, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

You should heed the warning and not make a lot of edits to your sandbox in quick succession. It still clogs up recent changes and you should still use "Show preview".
jvvg (talk | contribs) 16:01, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
ok, I will try that

How can WikiMonitor know when a new curator is chosen?

It automatically checks the front page of the Scratch website every Monday.

help with uploading images

I am trying to upload an image to the wiki for my user talk page, but it keeps saying I need to do something to do with a comment on the image. Idk what this means. plz help
XII_RH1N0 (talk | contribs) 04:47, 26 January 2021 (UTC)

Ok, I got the image to upload, now I cannot figure out how to use it
XII_RH1N0 (talk | contribs) 05:06, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
Check out the help page on images for how to use it.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 05:08, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
So, I am using the wiki gallery to try and find my image, it doesn't show up. Does this mean that I have to re-upload the image or what?
XII_RH1N0 (talk | contribs) 17:51, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
I don't see any images you uploaded. As for your original issue, you need to include a category (with the format [[Category:CATEGORY NAME]]) in the comment. Looking at the log you were trying to upload a user image, so it would go in the category Category:Users' Images.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 19:03, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
I had that issue a few times. But seen someone on this talk page with the same issue. So i fixed the issue with the solution you gave to someone else. It had uploaded but then I couldn't use it. Now its not saying I uploaded it
XII_RH1N0 (talk | contribs) 19:06, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
I just tried to upload it yet again. I included in the description, it game me the same error
XII_RH1N0 (talk | contribs) 19:09, 26 January 2021 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── The issue in this case seems to be that you included a period. It should be [[Category:Users' Images]].
jvvg (talk | contribs) 19:12, 26 January 2021 (UTC)

I give up. Its still not working
XII_RH1N0 (talk | contribs) 19:56, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
I'm looking at the log again and it says the summary was blank. I honestly don't know how that can happen, I will need to contact the person who maintains the filter.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 20:25, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
The Summary was small yea, but it said either "My Talk Page Icon" or "XII_RH1N0's Talk Page Icon"
XII_RH1N0 (talk | contribs) 20:39, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
No, I mean it said you had no summary at all. I don't know how that can even happen.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 21:11, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
Oh. Are the summary and desctiption 2 different things? Because if they are, I didn't see anything about a summary. Or is the summary something only Admins can see 22:49, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
XII_RH1N0 (talk | contribs) 22:50, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
That's the thing. When you first upload a file there isn't a place to add a summary, and the description is supposed to be taken from the summary. I am going to contact kenny2scratch about this (he designed the filter).
jvvg (talk | contribs) 22:52, 26 January 2021 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Oh no. I broke the wiki D:
XII_RH1N0 (talk | contribs) 23:38, 26 January 2021 (UTC)

I think the filter is possibly outdated, since it was last modified 2 years ago and we've upgraded since then. It now only checks for a summary on a reupload, not creation. You should be able to upload properly now. Not clear why this hasn't happened before.

Thanks but uh... define "Sub-Page" for me.
XII_RH1N0 (talk | contribs) 04:22, 27 January 2021 (UTC)
A sub-page is a page which is given the title of a different page, plus a '/' and then another title. For example, Featured Studios/Currently Featured is a sub-page of Featured Studios (and it needs to be updated with "Poetic Cafe"…).
