Need To Change Something

Hi Scimonster, on the current events page of the wiki, you say the ST has changed the post count to <100 <500 <1000. The ST changed that to this: +100 +500 +1000. Sorry if this is in the wrong place, I am new to the wiki.

I edited it. In the future, you can just ask on the Community Portal, although this was fine. And remember to sign your posts on talk pages with <scratchsig>Scimonster</scratchsig> 18:00, 22 April 2012 (UTC).
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 14:26, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for letting us know, Joletole. For stuff like this, it would be better to mention on the Community Portal. :)
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 15:54, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, sorry again this is in the wrong place.
Joletole (talk | contribs) 17:24, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
It's fine. :)
Another tip; you notice how we're indenting our posts? You do that with X amount of colons at the front. :)

To get to tooltip working correctly, you have to use quotes.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 00:35, 30 March 2012 (UTC)
How did you make those, by the way?
Technoboy10 (talk | contribs) 00:39, 30 March 2012 (UTC)
I borrowed from veggie when he was young. :P I expect he got them from Wikipedia or something.

Scratch File Format -- Category

Should we really categorise all the Scratch File Format subpages under "Scratch Program"? There's going to be quite a lot of them, and I feel they might clutter up the namespace quite a bit... :)
Blob8108 (talk | contribs) 10:38, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Heheh, I was thinking that myself. Why don't you make a category for them? Categorize the category under Scratch Program.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 11:31, 30 March 2012 (UTC)
But they're already subpages; is a category really necessary?
Blob8108 (talk | contribs) 11:41, 30 March 2012 (UTC)
What do you propose?
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 15:14, 30 March 2012 (UTC)
I just wondered if there was a built-in way to list all the subpages of a page. If not, I'll go with having a "subcategory", like you suggested. :)
Blob8108 (talk | contribs) 16:23, 30 March 2012 (UTC)
I concur, a category would probably work best.
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 16:48, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

a suggestion

You know your userscript which added messages to the forums? Can you update it for messages on the Wiki, too? Just a suggestion. :)
Hardmath123 (talk | contribs) 15:56, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

Sure. :)
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 18:19, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
Actually, I'm not sure if I can, because the wiki is on a different server. Try it out by downloading it here.

Random Stuff About Me Section

In the Random Stuff About Me section on your user page it says "This user is not a teen," but in your moderator speech it says you are 13. You should probably update your user page.
Bsteward (talk | contribs) 22:01, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, I haven't updated it in a while. Now that I got the mod status I should probably change some stuff. :P

As a wise man once said:

Any userscript made by someone who actually knows Javascript can be made more differently by someone who doesn't know Javascript.

Oh cool. Slight glitch that can be fixed by changing line 17 to:
else if (!(link[i].href.indexOf("useskin=scratch2")+1)) link[i].href += '?useskin=scratch2';
Now it won't append it to the links in the page functions menu.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 11:39, 23 April 2012 (UTC)
Well now, i've done some improving too. Now, both functions are in one script, and it fixes Hrefs with hash strings to use the skin too.

Don't edit other people's user pages

I shouldn't have to tell you this since you're an admin, but you shouldn't edit other people's user pages unless there's an emergency (like breaking the wiki guidelines, inappropriate content, etc.) If you see something that should be changed on someone's user page, then you should probably just notify them on their talk page. :)
Lucario621 (talk | contribs) 17:28, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

Mr. WeirdF said that it can be edited in the case of a grammatical mistake. Which there was.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 17:45, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
I'm don't see anywhere on the wiki where it says that... Either way, if that's the case, you should probably mention it in the edit summary next time. :)
Lucario621 (talk | contribs) 17:56, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

Transcribing images

It seems you made an error while transcribing images. Here you transcribe the image File:Online Sensor 2.png. Afterwards you deleted the image here. However you did not transcribe the image on the Script article. I fixed it for you. Please be more careful before deleting files next time.

Hey Scim!

Its been a while since I've been on, but I wanted to check on Scratch's progress. I noticed projects are still being made in 1.4? Where is 2.0! I would get back to Scratch if it actually had some actual power! Do you know if there are some prototypes or something like that that I can look at? Thanks :)
Dazman (talk | contribs) 01:10, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

I'm not Scimonster (obviously :P) but I can answer your question: there is currently no public prototype, and Scratch 2.0 will (supposedly) be released this year. There was a public prototype for this past Scratch Day a few months ago, but it's since been made private again. It's still possible to see it though (although the Scratch Team doesn't want people to) if you dig around in the Advanced Topics forum a little. ;)
Veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 01:46, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

"Scim"? Since when has that been my nickname? :P
Category:Scratch 2.0 Images has plenty of images, and Category:Scratch 2.0 info on them. :)
The secret testing team is planning on blogging about some 2.0 features soon. Probably Cloud Data, but you can make your own request here.

Hello Scimonster!

I noticed you uploading all the Scratch 2.0 Screenshots of features, that weren't in the public alpha. How do you get them? Or is this a secret?

Not too many real life celebrations, but i might borrow a cookie for the occasion. I'll update my status here, and on my Scratch email, and maybe make a post on the Announcements topic about the wiki. And i guess it will be the first time that i'll make an edit count topic on the CP. :P

Curiouscrab (talk | contribs) 19:47, 15 October 2012 (a boy)

The only one there is is a stub. "is is" is proper grammar. And so is "'is is' is". And i could keep on going. :D

I was in a rush to soccer practice.

I came back from school and I got a horrible eng mark it was out of 100 I got 26. I was mad at him because he was being very unfair, I got most of them wrong by spelling shakespeare shakespear.

I did not intended it to mean, it is how I speak.

I got even more mad when my math teacher now hates me.

I witnessed a horrible crash after that, a victim bleeding and his head out of his neck, I got mad of that teenager.

Unofficial? Its not even approved yet.

Note Note: I am NOT lying, everything is true so don't assume I am lying.

Note Note: This might go on for some time.

Note Warning: I get extreme mood swings.

Note Tip: If you found it still mean, I am sorry but just a tip, saying that just makes people more mad.

I understand why you deleted it since I see that you have a different hesder and status, although can you make 2 templates and name one gray or something and the other blue or yellow, depending on what you talk about?

You know i live in Israel, right? Well, Gaza, controlled by the terrorist organization Hamas, has been shooting rockets at Southern Israel for a long time. Last week, the IDF finally decided they'd had enough of it, and sent their own missiles back at Gaza, along with precisely dropping bombs on Hamas's rocket launching pads, and leaders' homes. So, it's a small war that could turn into a full-scale war, if Israel decides to do a ground invasion. That's what my status is about.

Not personalized, but if you forget the four tildes it signs for you, but that won't work because it would do the same on the actual page when editing and would sign under the last discussion/post, not the one you just were in.
