If your very inactive, will you lose SW account?
Alternatives (talk | contribs) 14:20, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Oh, no. :P Paddle2See hasn't ever done anything, and he has an account.
When you post, you should click on the "comment" tab, so that it starts a new section. Also, you should sign your post with 4 tildes (~~~~) — it leaves a signature so we know who you are and when you posted. :)
BTW, accounts can't even be deleted with MediaWiki (what we use). :P
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 14:28, 21 June 2011 (UTC)
Your Scratch account doesn't get deleted when you go inactive, so why would you expect it to get deleted here? xD

Can I Steal you Status thing?

You know that status box you made. Can I please use it?

Link on your userpage

It says there's a wanted page that's called "Smoking ban" being linked to on your page. Apparently what I did didn't fix it. Maybe you should try to figure it out.
BWOG (talk | contribs) 22:40, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

I know about that. When I click on it, it took me to Wikipedia, but it still showed up in the wanted pages.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 04:49, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
EDIT: Did it.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 04:56, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Add to front page?

I made an article about some important recent happenings on Scratch. Knowing the fact it's my first article you probably won't like it. http://wiki.scratch.mit.edu/wiki/Email_Impersonating
Rabbit1131 (talk | contribs) 12:23, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

You shouldn't sign in the article.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 13:10, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

Status Update

I added a single line to your status box so that the edit box doesn't appear next to your status. I hope that is okay with you.
Dazman (talk | contribs) 07:15, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

You also need to archive this page XD.

I know quite well. ;)
It makes it easier for me to update it; that's why I left it. :P

You might want to be a bit nicer when reprimanding users

Sorry, but your reprimanding posts are written in a cruel way — you should be nicer :/ (Uh I hope I don't sound too cruel myself ^^)
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 05:31, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Cruel? How are they cruel?
Sometimes my joking in real life doesn't carry over to the internet. :(
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 09:39, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
What does he say that is offensive? I always feel like Sci is trying to help even if he does seem reprimanding.
Dazman (talk | contribs) 10:07, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
He considered this "cruel" (which I think is a bit much), and I admit this wasn't so nice. :(
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 10:31, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
You never insult, it's just that your 'tone of voice' is a bit scary IMO :P
Hmm now that I search for an example I can't find anything (besides this which wasn't too bad) o_O Well this is very embarrassing :/ Maybe I'm thinking about a different person? I'm confused :/
Sowwee!!! ^^ :3 nom nom
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 10:40, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
We all make mistakes.
I'll try to be nicer in the future.

Need to get used to the Wiki

How can I make a sandbox for myself?
LordSydney (talk | contribs) 08:05, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Create a page at something like User:LordSydney/Sandbox :D
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 08:25, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
Just go to User:LordSydney/Sandbox, and you're done :D It'll work with any name, it's just everyone uses the usual 'Sandbox' title :P
Chrischb (talk | contribs) 08:27, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
EDIT: Lol what on earth... Jon replied and I reverted it??? xD Sorry, lol
Chrischb (talk | contribs) 08:27, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
Bringing his edit back.
Chrischb (talk | contribs) 08:33, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
What? Do you mean you replaced his sig. with yours? lol
LordSydney (talk | contribs) 08:41, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
So basically I can make any page by going to the name that I want? ok!
LordSydney (talk | contribs) 08:42, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
Eh he accidentally removed my post so he put it back.
And yeah, that's how you make pages :D
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 08:44, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
Wow, lots happened on my talk page while my computer was down. XD

How do I make the background boxes like you have at the bottom of your user page?

Copy and paste the code and edit it >:D

When undoing edits

It looks kinda scary when in Recent Changes you see "Reverted edits by Someone (Talk) to last revision by Someone" ^^ You might want to say what you're undoing in the summary — otherwise it looks like you're reverting vandalism or something xD

Or maybe I'm just weird, lol...
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 09:01, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

You have a valid argument. :)
I was being a bit rushed. I'll go tell coinman why I reverted his edit, and I'll try to be more like WeirdF. xP (He makes very good edit summaries: I sometimes don't even have to check to see what he did!)
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 10:33, 4 August 2011 (UTC)


i thought the edit button was like a reply button.
Coinman (talk | contribs) 14:02, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

It is. :P Just don't edit other peoples' posts. :)
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 14:18, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
oh ok
Coinman (talk | contribs) 21:35, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

why i uploaded gif images

i was using an old computer when i uploaded the image next time i will use a newer computer. EDIT:this somehow flipped into a different discusion.
Coinman (talk | contribs) 21:41, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

I fixed it.
Don't worry.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 08:33, 7 August 2011 (UTC)

Thank you!

Thanks for helping me learn the basics of the scratch wiki!

world.jpg, and formatting questions

Just wondering, what did you do to the picture? I know it's clearer, and file format, but did you actually made another list, or did you edit the old pic? I'm just curious. Also, in the raycaster article, can you explain the formatting changes you made. Just want to know, because one of the lines now has three bullets.
Cygene (talk | contribs) 19:46, 10 September 2011 (UTC)

Also, is it possible to make the bullets different depending on the line's rank in the hierarchy? Using the same bullet makes the list confusing.
Cygene (talk | contribs) 19:48, 10 September 2011 (UTC)
I copied the list; it wasn't too hard. :P I downloaded a few new programs to get it down to only 558B though. :D
That's an interesting question. I don't think the CSS is wired that way though. D: I'll ask someone 'bout that though. :D
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 19:50, 10 September 2011 (UTC)

Alternatives to Scratch question

Ok so I am using this great programming language called lazarus (pascal) and i think it counts as a alternative but i'll leave it up to you :3
Slinger (talk | contribs) 07:30, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

I answered on Talk:Alternatives to Scratch.
Please put new posts at the bottom of the page.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 07:50, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

My talk page needs HELP!

Anyways, I still get that _ new messages thing, but I cannot edit it. YES, YOU HEARD ME RIGHT. I CANNOT EDIT IT. So can you/Jonathanpb please edit it?
Thanks in advance!
IHeartGaming (talk | contribs) 20:23, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Uh yeah, that's right. You asked for it to be protected, so now you can't edit it. Would you like it put back to normal?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 06:57, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
FYI protecting a page makes all users (well except admins I guess) unable to edit it ^^
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 07:30, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
Yes please!
IHeartGaming (talk | contribs) 22:16, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Done ^^
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 23:27, 23 September 2011 (UTC)


Sci, what is a sandbox and how do you access it? I have a feeling that it's where users do experimental edits, but how do you access it. Please reply :)
Cygene (talk | contribs) 23:37, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

A sandbox is an experimental page, yes.
There's a public sandbox on most wikis at Project:Sandbox, and many people are in the habit of creating their own personal sandbox at Special:MyPage/Sandbox. :)
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 04:34, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Your Page Header (the Last edited by ___ part)

How do you have that set up? When you edit a page it tells me you are a boy, but when I edit it, it tells me that I am a UTB or something like that.
IHeartGaming (talk | contribs) 23:05, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

Click the + next to the logout button, select My preferences, and put your gender in ;) It's completely optional though; you don't have to if you don't want to :P
Jonathanpb (talk | contribs) 03:40, 12 October 2011 (UTC)
UTB stands for Unidentified Typing Being, if you rolled over it. :P
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 11:32, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

Could you protect my Talk page archive?

That would help. Also, could you answer my question about my account creation? (It's on my talk page) Thanks
SJRCS_011 (talk | contribs)17:50, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

i can protect it.

How do you become an admin/sysop?

I want to become one. :P
IHeartGaming (talk | contribs) 00:33, 29 October 2011 (UTC)

It takes a lot of hard, dedicated work, honesty, helpfulness, and having a need for the tools that you can use when give the sysop privileges.
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 00:49, 29 October 2011 (UTC)
This is the list that I made on the CP:
  • Almost perfect (preferably perfect) spelling and grammar
  • Having been on the wiki for a fairly substantial amount of time
  • Having a fairly substantial amount of good edits
  • Having a firm understanding of the rules
  • Having a basic understanding of MediaWiki formatting
  • Being active, and making useful edits
  • Being a very responsible person
  • Wanting the job for reasons other than power
  • Having a need to use the extra tools provided for you

Just so you know, IHG, if you "forgot tildes thingy", it'll take a while 'til you're ready for adminship. :P
Not to dishearten you at all though. xD
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 19:22, 29 October 2011 (UTC)
Awww. Okay...
IHeartGaming (talk | contribs) 23:20, 29 October 2011 (UTC)
When you "mature" on the wiki we'll see. :P ("Mature" is gain experience. ;P) You need to be active and dedicated if you want the power though.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 12:31, 30 October 2011 (UTC)


I was trying to move a page, but while pressing the shift button, I accidentally hit enter. The original article was at Animating_a_3d_Object and I accidentaly moved it to Animating_a_3-_Object when I meant to move it to Animating a Three-Dimensional_Object.
SJRCS_011 (talk | contribs)02:04, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

No harm done, it seems to have been fixed.

?== Who Is Scitest ==

I see this acount named "scitest" on scratch and it has your logo, but opposite colors. Also you based snake eyes of "ones" by scitest. Who is scitest?
Luap01 (talk | contribs) 22:04, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

it's sci's test account, of course.
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 22:43, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
It's not "scitest", it's "sci_test". ;P

Where can I find the Wiki standards?

About a week ago you rollbacked my edits to a page because the content was not really up to the wiki standards. Where can I find the Wiki standards? Also, are there some tutorials on how to edit the wiki? I know some stuff, but still unsure of the majority of things - if you would help - it would be awesome! Now, I will attempt to sign this :D
Purika (talk | contribs) 19:34, 08 January 2012 (UTC)

Here are some general rules to try and follow:
  • Always use proper grammar and spelling. There are a bunch of mistakes in your text.
  • Browse through categories to find a good one to categorize it under; don't use Scratch Wiki.
  • Try not to create duplicate articles: stuff that can easily fit it another page can usually be added there, unless it's really important.
  • Use third person in articles, except tutorials.
Also, try looking around the wiki to see how other stuff is written. :) Hit Random Page from the navigation sidebar.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 18:36, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

User Categories

I noticed your user page is in the categories "Wiki Admin User Pages" and "Awesome Users XD". Since they're non-existant categories, maybe you should remove them? :P
