Hi! First of all, I'd just like to say what an excellent job you're doing on the wiki! Hopefully you'll stay, because at the moment there's only about three or four dedicated editors. But anyway, on with what I'd like to say: Everything made on the wiki is categorised under something or rather, and it's extremely useful if you categorise every file you upload and every page you create. Don't worry if you get it wrong, 'cause someone with more experience will change it, but just try and think about that! ;)
WeirdF (talk | contribs) 20:01, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Oh yeah, and here's a list of categories for you: Special:Categories. Also, you categorise things by doing this at the bottom of the page: [[Category:Category Name]].
WeirdF (talk | contribs) 20:02, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
Thanks WeirdF! I'll make sure to categorize the articles I create.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 10:50, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

You're a great editor!

You've been doing a lot of great edits, and it's awesome that you're adding workarounds - those are really nice to have. Good job :D
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 05:10, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks! That was one of the things I thought was missing from the wiki.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 10:51, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

File formats

The workarounds you've been adding are awesome; keep it up! I was just wondering whether you could upload the script images as PNGs instead of GIFs in the future. PNGs allow much smaller filesizes, as well as many other things.
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 17:27, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

I'll try to convert them. They'll still have GIF quality though.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 17:29, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
With these block images, PNG and GIF have no quality difference because they have less than 256 colours. The main reason is filesize (because it makes pages load much faster and saves server space [so maybe eventually there will be an upload limit over 10 megabytes!]).
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 17:31, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
OK, next time.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 17:32, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
One question. Do you care about my extra time and the space it uses on my computer?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 18:09, 1 March 2011 (UTC)
Yes. I care. I am only asking that you take the image into something such as MS Paint and convert it to a PNG. That's it. I can do the rest. It really shouldn't take much time, and the files can be easily deleted off of your computer.
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 05:05, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

If there are lots of blocks it takes a little while to remove all the black that appears. :/
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 09:51, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

You needn't remove the black. You could get GIMP.
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 15:23, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
This may sound stupid, but what is GIMP? And where can I get it?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 17:20, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 23:52, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

You pwn

I know that I've said it before, but I'll say it again: You're an awesome editor! They way you just churn out edits - and good edits, too... O_o
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 04:37, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks! BTW, what is pwn? (I'm pretty new to the internet, less than a year on Scratch).
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 07:52, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
Think of 'pwn' as 'really awesome' or 'did really well' - for example, if you were absolutely incredible at an activity, someone could say that you pwned :)
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 09:10, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 09:28, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
Pwn also can mean to Own! ;)

i wanna use your user boxes but im not sure how i should set it up to go with my page.
Dazman (talk | contribs) 19:57, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
I really like the way my page and talk page are set up. On my page i have my most recent and favorite projects in boxes to make it look neat.
Dazman (talk | contribs) 20:00, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Maybe just add a section.

I Doubt This is a Big Deal

I Doubt This is a Big Deal, but I noticed on your user page, you said that you had authored 15 of the articles. Like I said its probably fine, but Chrischb once said this to me:

When contributing information, it belongs to the wiki - no user can claim that the work is theirs and sign it thus

Dazman (talk | contribs) 06:30, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

You think I should remove it? It's a list of my contribs. :/
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 06:39, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
I'm not saying you should remove. I was just throwing it out for consideration.
Dazman (talk | contribs)
I don't think the word "authored" fits, but "created" would be fine :)
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 21:59, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
I put "started". :)
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 18:36, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
XD When I said that I was talking about putting information on who wrote what directly in an article.
Chrischb (talk | contribs) 04:59, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

Oh, thanks :D

Ahh, I see! Thanks for telling me that, now I know for the future! If you want to fix them, that would be nice of you, thanks!

This is unfair.

For every 1 edit I make, you make like 8-10 (-.-). How do you do that much?
Dazman (talk | contribs) 14:28, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Perhaps because I edit quickly. :P I LOLed when I saw what you wrote.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 14:34, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
Or maybe it's because I've been on the computer most of the day.* :P

Well done on becoming an admin! :D Lucario screen-shared it, it looked great :P

Editing People's Userpages

Technically you're not supposed to do it without their permission, even if you think links are wrong and stuff. It is their userpage.
WeirdF (talk | contribs) 11:07, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, I know. I hate those external links though, I'm trying to replace them all.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 11:12, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
I just counted- out of +2500, only 10 were on other people's userpages, and 2 were with permission (fixing dazman's links).
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 11:18, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
Maybe they like the external links? :/
You shouldn't be editing their userpages without permission from them though :/
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 23:48, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
agreed. i believe that permission must be obtained.
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 00:19, 16 April 2011 (UTC)
Well maybe that should be put down somewhere :P
Chrischb (talk | contribs) 02:47, 16 April 2011 (UTC)
But what about the people who haven't been on in forever? I doubt they would check their talk pages.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 17:43, 16 April 2011 (UTC)
Well to be honest a couple of links on unactive users' userpages isn't gonna slow down the whole Scratch Website so much that the entire internet crashes... Maybe that's a bit extreme but you get the point. :P
WeirdF (talk | contribs) 18:00, 16 April 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, OK. :P
I think I'm going to bring this up on the CP.

Weirdish Account

I created an account called ScratchWikiUser. By the name, I think you should have worked out that it's a suggestion for a Scratch Wiki "mascot", to replace all the different user pictures on the Wiki. If you (or somebody else) accepts this, then I'll tell you the details. Otherwise, I'll delete it or find a use for it.
SpiritMaster (talk | contribs) 17:01, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

What user pictures? The scratchsig ones? The are there so you can see their icon when people post.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 17:13, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
Anyways, I can't create accounts yet. :(
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 17:19, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
I just explained it but you changed the page and I lost it! :(
SpiritMaster (talk | contribs) 17:26, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
No you hadn't.
Please post at the bottom.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 17:27, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
I mean having the same account in pictures for all pages on the Wiki. Understand?
SpiritMaster (talk | contribs) 17:31, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
No, they stay there.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 18:11, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
I mean, yes I understand.
No, I don't think we should do that.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 19:06, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
I don't think we need ScratchWikiUser, seeing as usernames don't have to be blurred in images (look here, section 2.3). Normal usernames are allowed in images.
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 23:04, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Battle of Capitalisation

Have you noticed that I've been capitalising lots of title recently (like you do lots) :D I'm surprised there are still so many left.
SpiritMaster (talk | contribs) 09:53, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, I noticed your capitalization project. XD
That's why I started doing it also.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 10:20, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
Also is the main word I capitalise. I also found an article with 'Common Uses'. AAGGHH!

Me too.

Scimonster (talk | contribs) 10:28, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
Just found another Common Uses, but I fixed it!
SpiritMaster (talk | contribs) 10:33, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
I got a couple too!
BTW, search for the common uses header. :D
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 11:00, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
I searched for common uses in the search bar.
SpiritMaster (talk | contribs) 11:02, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

Oh, what about the common uses on Project Notes?
Stay or go?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 11:33, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
I think that should stay, mainly because it's not a block. I'm surprised that didn't come up in the search results.
SpiritMaster (talk | contribs) 11:37, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
It did show in the search.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 11:45, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
EDIT: I think it should stay as Common Uses because it's telling you ways the project notes are often used, not how they could be used.

I was thinking that too. :)

Sorry to put this here, but...

Sorry it isn't related to the Wiki, but I have nowhere else to put it, since I'm not allowed to post on the forums. Anyway, I'm trying to add a looks block from here but I can't find the 'looks' category in ScriptableScratchMorph -> class -> blockSpecs. The pen category isn't there either. And both kinds of blocks work fine. Help, anyone?
