Second Chance?

If I reject an account because they did not give a good enough description of how to help, should I tell them why on their profile and do they get another opportunity?
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 19:57, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Yes.

Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 20:10, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
Well, if someone says something like "Yay" or something completely vague I think you can reject it.

derpmeup (talk | contribs) 21:45, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Yes, that's known as a "partial reject". Here's my general philosophy for now: If the user says s/he read S:CONTRIB and the request notes aren't stupid, then just ask for more specific information (e.g. "What articles would you do ___ on?" if the user said they would do something to articles). If the user didn't say s/he read S:CONTRIB but had ok request notes, ask the user to read that page again and submit new request notes as a reply to your comment.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 22:03, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

if you read the "how to start ew" link that was given on the cp you would of seen this, and it tells how to reject/accept/partially reject accounts.

Security Question

I thought you'd be a reliable source, so here' goes. I IP ban people on my site who misbehave. However, it appears that a device such as a phone's IP address constantly changes all the time. Do you know of any way in PHP preferably to block someone based on a particular device such as a phone with a changing address?
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 03:28, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Unfortunately, there is no good way to do that. If the IPs have something in common, it would be possible to ban the range of IPs that it uses, but that also has the potential side effect of banning innocent users. You could also try doing the "autoblock" thing, where if a user logs in from a blocked IP, it blocks that username, and if the user logs in from a blocked username, it blocks that IP.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 11:47, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
I don't like autoblock, because if you enable that, you are giving the prv. to that user to ban any IP. All they have to do to ban the library is sign on.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 15:15, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
What then is Scratch's method of preventing users to continuously create a new account?
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 19:48, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
They really just have IP addresses. It's actually fairly easy to get around that as long as you remove all of your cookies and permanently use a proxy.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 21:04, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
yeah i agree with krett12 - it may be effective for first time autoblock but after that its really not useful (expecially if they know)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 23:00, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
They can IP ban logins, account creation, or all access to the website. I think if you use a proxy they will check cookies to see if you've been to the ip ban page.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 23:14, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
an easy fix is just to delete cookies hehe i mean, if you know how to use a proxy you know how to delete cookies :P
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 23:25, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I mentioned removing cookies in my above post.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 00:03, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
I bet Scratch uses cookies for its 60-second rule.
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 02:04, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── don't tell the new scratchers or they're going to download like auto cookie removers :)
KrIsMa Anamation2.gif KrIsMa user | talk | contribs | edits 02:22, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Have you noticed Scratch does not send encrypted password data? There is no https.
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 02:50, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
No, it does not use cookies for the 60-second rule. It looks in the database to see when your last post was. I also did notice that Scratch does not have TLS. I pointed this out a while ago, but Lightnin gave me the standard speech about how it's lots of trouble for fairly small gain (the one I have given here a couple times). He doesn't realize that the potential gain is actually extremely large.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 11:45, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
They can be a pain in the button with SSL certificates, and a hacker can easily decrypt data sent with SSL. Also, many other sites besides Scratch do not use SSL including Tomshardware.
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 16:52, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
Actually, TLS is pretty secure. It's extremely difficult to decrypt.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 17:57, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
Additionally, it never hurts to have it. You can obtain a basic certificate for $15/year or lower, and keeping the server running with it is pretty easy.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 17:59, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
How can it be so hard to decrypt when the server/client both have to decrypt it? It must be a standardized encryption that one can easily maneuver around.
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 19:37, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Clicky! - It's one of those public/private key things involving handshakes and whatnot.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 21:37, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

Ah, that seems so much more secure (and wise) than SSL! That way there is a different encoding for each communication with each client, brilliant! I think that for a site like Scratch or the Scratch Wiki itself, SSL is not really important, because you do not have to enter your address, telephone #, full name, and there is no credit card-related stuff. I don't really care that Scratch does not use SSL. But for something like Amazon I do care because personal information is there. Think of it, Scratch is non-profit so no one will really be able to get money by hacking into your Scratch account, and that's usually why people hack into things, to somehow get money.
Turkey3 (talk | contribs) 21:47, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

Just to let you now

You can still see who is blocked on the Special:BlockList page.
Swampert11 (talk | contribs) 00:32, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I know. I don't have the resources to hide that, unfortunately. However, at least the users who were once banned and have since been unbanned can't be seen.

Krett12 (talk | contribs) 14:43, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── The host I chose hosts several pretty reputable websites, including fluxbb.org. I also don't really trust x10, the offer looks like one of those "too good to be true" things (i.e. it will be really great sometimes but be plagued by downtime, poor support, and the like). HostGator also looked nice, but I ultimately chose the one I did because they make a point of keeping out the nonsense and the fact that they host reputable sites. What justification do you have for not liking them?

-PRO- (talk | contribs) 22:15, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

We do not advertise the fact that a user is banned any more than the software automatically does. This goes against Scratch policy. However, for the Phildude one, you can put it back if you want (I just clicked all of them at once), but only because that was your own account (if that were another user that switched accounts, changing that message would be a violation of userspace.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 22:17, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

For ones I use (i.e. not my parents or siblings), just two: my laptop and my raspberry pi. I also have a couple of old ones in my closet (as old as a Macintosh SE!) that I sometimes use, though not routinely.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 22:22, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Pretty much all you do for the wiki, and your websites. I just have one computer. How many programming languages do you know?

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Well, I run WM on my Pi. Anyway, as for programming languages I know... Scratch, AutoIT, SmallBASIC, QBASIC, PHP/MySQL, XHTML/CSS (not programming languages per se but still important), JS/AJAX, Squeak, Objective-C, Java, C#, Visual Basic, a little bit of Python, Unix Shell, and Windows/DOS Batch.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 22:30, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

I am wanting to be a programmer when I grow up. Which languages do you suggest learning. You know a lot of languages! How do you remember all of them?
-PRO- (talk | contribs) 22:32, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
C and C++ will probably get you the farthest in general software development. Do you have a specific field you want to enter? If so, those often have more specific languages (e.g. PHP for webserver engineering and MySQL for database engineering). I remember the languages because they actually have the same fundamental structure in common, just different ways of expressing it.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 22:49, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
I haven't totally figured out what type I want. My uncle is a mainframe programmer in Canada. I would think web development or software engineering. You want to be a transportation engineer, right?
-PRO- (talk | contribs) 23:16, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, transportation engineering (i.e. maintaining ATC systems and the like) is my biggest interest. For web development, you definitely need to learn HTML, CSS, and JavaScript/AJAX. In addition, depending on the server software you work with, you also need to know either PHP or Python (PHP is way better IMO, but some people use Python anyway).

Deleting that was the wrong thing to do I think....

Can you undelete help by jb and then move it into his userspace?
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 13:53, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

Sure.

Deleting Help by JB

Hey jvvg! Why did you delete my "Help by JB" page? I don't undrstand why. --

Articles on this Wiki need to be about specific topics (e.g. explaining a feature, a tutorial on how to do something, etc). In addition, articles for personal use or chat articles are not allowed. Your article was one where people would ask questions to you, which makes it a chat article and one for personal use. Please read Scratch Wiki:Guidelines and Scratch Wiki:New page policies for more information. If you have any suggestions on how to make those pages clearer, please tell me or another active user.

Could you install this on the AF wiki

Ever since I was FTProbbed (jk) I've been wanting the extension UserGroups so I can still edit the group rights. Installing extensions is rare enough I can just ask you.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 18:14, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

How often does it come up that you even need to edit group rights?
jvvg (talk | contribs) 18:21, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
For one, right now. I'm trying to figure something out w/ it. Two, at least twice a year. Adding and unadding the "view" power for guests.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 18:27, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
What exactly are you trying to figure out, and my plan is instead of just linking to the articles, actually move them here. If we just link to them, then it's not even that funny.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 18:37, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
Krett, you said that you prefer LocalSettings.php
JayceeMinecraft (talk | contribs) 19:12, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
Since I changed web hosts for the AF Wiki (along with all of my other stuff), Krett lost FTP access (and therefore the ability to edit localsettings.php) because I can't create secondary FTP accounts.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 19:16, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
Oh, and that extension is very good because you can create User Group and give them ANY permissions on a Web interface.

Linking to the wiki is better because 1) of the random page button and 2) It gives us more options.
Krett12 (talk | contribs) 19:36, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

What new options would it give?
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 20:23, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

The random page button would be a little nice, but as derpmeup said, what "options" would it give us? Anyway, as I said before, it's way funnier to have it in the actual article than just a link saying "For a funnier version of this article, go here".

Nike Heartland

Hey jvvg, I just got back from the Nike Heartland meet that I was running at. I ran the 5K in 25:42 which it 5 seconds faster than my last 5K. I wish you could run in your Nike meet. Thanks!
-PRO- (talk | contribs) 20:14, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, I do too. Sadly, my season ended three weeks ago so I'm just doing winter training right now.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 22:00, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
Cool. My season ended on September 8th. I have been done for a long time.
-PRO- (talk | contribs) 22:05, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I'm now just getting ready for track. I hope to break 5:00 at the first meet I run.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 22:06, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
5:00 for a mile?
-PRO- (talk | contribs) 22:07, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
Yeah. My most recent mile (a time trial we did in practice) was a 5:02.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 22:13, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Wow! That is really good! I can only run about an 8 minute mile by myself. I have never done a 1 mile race.
-PRO- (talk | contribs) 22:15, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

If you beat 5 minutes then you must be Usain Jacob Bolt
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 23:21, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
:P Thanks, but even at 5:02, I'm only #8 on my team for the mile (#9 for the 5K, my season would end next week if I were #7 or better).
jvvg (talk | contribs) 23:38, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
What?! O_o What's the time of #1 on your team?
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 23:40, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
15:45 in the 5K, 4:29 in the 1600 (mile).
jvvg (talk | contribs)
? What do those numbers mean?
-PRO- (talk | contribs) 23:44, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
Never mind. Sorry I am sleepy because of my 5K and it is only 5:45 where I live.
-PRO- (talk | contribs) 23:45, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Yeah, workouts and races can make one tired. (Offtopic: I'm expecting an important email, so every time I get an email from one of these messages I'm really hopeful that it's the email I'm waiting for, but sadly it's just MediaWiki).
jvvg (talk | contribs) 23:46, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

You have it email you every time you have a message? Offtopic: Who is sending you that important of an email?
-PRO- (talk | contribs) 23:50, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
I disabled getting an email from new talk messages in my preferences ages ago
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 23:51, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, it does. I probably should disable that. It's just useful when I'm away from the Wiki for extended periods of time and would like to know if anybody contacts me. The email I am expecting is from Github, as I signed up for the student pack.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 23:52, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
What does the Student Pack do?
-PRO- (talk | contribs) 23:54, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
It gives me a bunch of free stuff, including a TLS certificate for my website.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 23:55, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
I just looked it up. So it just gives you free software? Have a good dinner too jvvg.
-PRO- (talk | contribs) 23:56, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Yep, just free software. However, that's still pretty useful.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 00:52, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Well

I just looked at the diff when you said "and stop that" in the summary - I only clicked save once, but the message posted 3 times...
derpmeup (talk | contribs) 23:53, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Odd. Sorry for saying that, then.
