Welcome to the Scratch Wiki!
Hey there! Welcome to the Scratch Wiki, Lemonadeleaf! We are glad that you've decided to join us here! I'm Drunken_Sailor, and I'm here to answer any questions or queries you might have about the Wiki. You can message me on my Talk Page if you need help with anything on the Wiki, have a question you want to ask, or just to chat! :P

If you want to find pages to edit, then you could look at Articles to expand or Article stubs to find pages that you can improve. Alternatively, you could have a look at Innacurate articles to find places to add references. I also get my own inspiration from Special:Random.

Have great time on the Wiki! Hope to see you around making some great edits! Bye for now, Lemonadeleaf!

Rapid Pointers

Okay, these will come in hot so brace yourself! (just kidding) - this is about your new article How to delete your account!. Some things:

  • Don't use exclamation points in article titles
  • Follow normal capitalization rules for titles when it comes to article titles. So I believe everything but the word "to" should be capitalized.
  • When writing an article, do not start off the article saying "this article's purpose is..." - the purpose of the article is implied from the title. Just hop right into the information instead.
  • There are only certain categories. See Special:Categories for a list of them all. What you probably want is [[Category:How to Pages]] for that article.
  • Try to only use third person when writing most articles.
  • Use the # at the beginning of a new line to make a numbered list. For clarification see this.

Also, please make sure that the page follows Scratch Wiki:New Page Policies and is not a duplicate page, thanks!

Hmm, it does seem to be a duplicate of Account Deletion. Sorry Lemonadeleaf, looks like it's going to need to be deleted.

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, Lemonadeleaf;

New Article

Your new article What Should I Report Someone For? seems to be the same as Report#When should a user be reported?. I was thinking it's best to just make it redirect to that rather than creating duplicate information. Agree?

How to Get Noticed

Your article How To Get Noticed some people think it may not be fit for the Wiki. I understand two of your articles have already been removed and I highly recommend you ask on the Community Portal from now on before creating an article. "How to Get Noticed" seems like the article Fame. It also seems like something better fit for the Scratch discussion forums IMO.

Additionally, please try to avoid using the words "we" - or avoiding first person when writing articles. However, I will open up a discussion at Talk:How To Get Noticed so it's not just my authoritative decision. You can go to that talk page to partake in any discussion, because that's what's generally done when someone believes an article doesn't fit the Wiki. Thanks! :)

Actually we are considering possibly merging it with the aritlce Fame and then making it redirect to Fame. What are your thoughts on this? This way any new content of yours can still be there, only on the page Fame instead to keep everything in one centralized location.
