Why did you delete my edit?

Hello, I assume you are talking about what I did on Series. It was because I found out that sentence was incorrect after a simple search.

Please be more liberal with categories

Hi, I noticed you made a bunch of recategorization edits on files recently. I appreciate that you want to better describe them, but I noticed that you often switched categories when it would have been better to add the latter, not replace the former with it. For example, File:Oops error.png is both an error image and a Scratch 3.0 image, and should therefore have both categories (and I have re-added the Category:Scratch 3.0) rather than replacing the 3.0 category with Category:Error Images. Only when the latter is a subcategory of the former (like Category:Scratch 3.0Category:Scratch 3.0 Block Images), or when the former doesn't really apply, or when the former was Category:Other Images, should the latter replace the former. Hope you can keep this in mind in the future. Thanks for your contributions so far!

Please make your signature more readable

Hi, nice signature! I like the style you've got going. However, I can't actually read your dark-ish-colored username against the dark background. That's fine on your userpage, where it's your choice whether to make it readable or not, but your signature goes on talk pages everywhere and must be able to clearly identify you. Could you please modify your signature to be more immediately readable? A change in either text color or background color should accomplish that. Thanks!

Is my signature readable now?

Sorry for getting back so late. No, it's dark purple on black. (Also, your signature dedents for some reason. Probably you have a leading linebreak rather than a br element in the signature.) Sorry.

Late reply, I made the text as bright as could be. It also does not dedent anymore. (I had a br and a linebreak.)

It's baaarely readable now, but what do you have against making the background even a little bit lighter? (Once more, apologies for the late reply.)

Hopefully it is better now.

About Template:Unreleased

Hi, I undid your edit on {{unreleased}} because it's generally the responsibility of the template user to add the |cat=no parameter when using it on userpages. If you want to keep the namespace detecting logic:

  • You should add it to all templates that add a category.
  • You may want to consolidate the entire category logic into a meta-template.
    Something like {{catlink|<category name>|<{{{cat|}}} goes in here>}}.
  • In either above case, you should propose it on the Community Portal first. I would support this.
  • You might consider adding the ability for |cat=yes to re-add the category on namespaces excluded by default.

Thanks for your contributions so far!

Okay. Also, what is a meta-template?
TheTrillion's Profile Picture.png  TheTrillion • Talk • 1,953 contributions • Scratch  20:29, 9 June 2021 (UTC)
A meta-template (e.g. {{Header Template}}) is a template mainly used by other templates rather than on actual pages. My suggestion is to have Template:Catlink be used on templates that add categories to abstract the logic of handling |cat=yes or no and actually adding the category.

Made a draft. Did you mean for it to be like that?
TheTrillion's Profile Picture.png  TheTrillion • Talk • 1,953 contributions • Scratch  23:51, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
FYI, you can use <onlyinclude> around only the parts you want, instead of <noinclude> around only the parts you don't.
Your draft looks good! One thing I would like, though, is to be able to specify which namespaces have "no" behavior. Maybe {{catlink|Category Name|cat={{{cat}}}|ns={{ns:0}}{{ns:4}}}} would add the category on mainspace and projectspace if cat is not "no", and on others only if cat is "yes", for example. By default, {{{ns}}} would be only {{ns:0}}.

Added the "Scratch Wiki" namespace detection, which I believe is what you meant.

A note on conventions

I've noticed you moving category links after interwiki links a few times now, so I'm here to let you know that the convention is one line of category links followed by one line of interwiki links (if present, no blank lines in between). Like this:

[[ru:Russian link]][[id:Indonesian link]]

Thanks for the information, I thought it was the other way around because of cat-at-end.
TheTrillion's Profile Picture.png  TheTrillion • Talk • 1,953 contributions • Scratch  14:38, 10 June 2021 (UTC)
The rule explicitly excludes interwiki links. No worries though!

Thank you for your welcome message

Thank you for your Welcome Message! Apologies if I should have responded on my own talk page; I am still figuring out how. I read some of the guides--they were very helpful! I'll try to read some more later, too.

"Removed an ugly space" is not worth an edit

Pretty much just read the subject. Only make the change if you can clean up the article in other ways in the same edit. Don't dedicate an entire copy of the article's content just to remove a line break.

(It seems that I only post on your talk page when I have a correction to make, so let me just say that your contributions so far are great! I just don't compliment people enough.)
