Userpages appearing in the contents box

Yes Resolved (since 15 June 2023)

In the contents box, which also appears on Scratch Wiki:April Fools, mentions templates and userpages as well, and are outside of mainspace, which probably most Wiki traffic goes to. Would it be possible for the Contents page on the joke version of the Scratch Wiki main page to only show mainspace pages, or would that require making a MediaWiki extension (although making an extension to make that happen might not be worth it as it would be only used there mainly)?

This page uses a contents box now, so I'll mark it as resolved.

Limit the number of joke news articles

 Unresolved (see all...)

A lot of the edits to this page are adding joke news to the respective section of this page. I think too many are being added an that the category should reduced to a few and no more can be added without consensus.

I agree. Most joke news gets pushed down way before AF, so it won't even be seen. Maybe no more than 5, since that's how many news articles there are on the real front page.

Well, maybe we can disallow editing the news section to certain users. But removing the news section completely isn't a good idea whatsoever.

It is getting long, but I don't think it's a good idea to stop adding new jokes. If it has to be kept short, maybe it should be "burned down by Kaj" or "eaten by an Evil Kumquat" every couple of months.

This is a rather good idea!
EddyTheFox12 (talk | contribs) 15:38, 12 November 2021 (UTC)
I think we should limit it to what actually fits on the screen, since virtually nobody is going to scroll down on that. I also think we should give priority to new content that has not yet appeared for April Fools day and start with removing what already appeared in 2021.

Should I add them back for the time being? I feel like a plan should've been made first, as there's no official rules on it right now.
Jackson49 (talk | contribs) 05:00, 21 February 2022 (UTC)
I removed a lot of the news articles a while ago (before I became an EW) in case it made the page too large or bloated. I am fine with the current number of news articles.
Jammum Icon.png Jammum (πŸ’¬ Talk - ✍️ Contribs - 🐱 Scratch) 07:59, 21 February 2022 (UTC)
That was a good temporary fix, but there's currently no rules stopping people from adding more. Personally, I don't think there should be, but most people disagree, so they should probably be made.

Protect this page

This should be protected since it is the AF version of the main page

2tables.png 2tables TalkContibutionsScratchEdits (960) April 24, 2023

It is best if it gets protected for 1th April and 31th March as it is a easy target for Community Guidelines braking content but the April fools rules say:
β€œ Any Wiki contributor is allowed to edit these pages and create new ones. ”
so I do not agree or disagree.
Scratchgodopfp.pngScratchgodo (Talk|Contributions|Scratch) 12:11, 24 April 2023 (UTC)
It could be possible that this page is protected near Apr 1st.

It is quite easy to make overzealous edits to this page (quite a few recent edits might make the page more difficult to read), additionally, many joke news items added would eventually be removed in 'debloatings'. I am quite neutral on whether this page should be protected or not.
Jammum Icon.png Jammum (πŸ’¬ Talk - ✍️ Contribs - 🐱 Scratch) 17:21, 24 April 2023 (UTC)
Speaking of the joke news items, maybe the old ones could be removed?

2tables (talk | contribs) (deleted) 20:29, 24 April 2023 (UTC)
Sort-of bump, but I think this page should be protected to EW+ (and possibly, this page being entirely remade). Almost all recent edits to this page bloated the page up, which make the page even harder to read for casual readers. Content could still be added by user request or when content can be rotated in the run-up to the next April Fools' Day.

Contents box not showing ALL pages.

Yes Resolved (since 15 June 2023)

It is not showing all the pages it is just showing the first page of whatever the index software they used. Maybe make one for the second page ON the index page they make. It is only showing up to the letter S. Someone fix it please

Sussy bots removal disagree

Yes Resolved (since 23:28, 13 November 2023 (UTC))

Recently, in the change logs, someone deleted sussy bots. But, there is no proof of people agreeing on it. Someone reverted it, and I agree on the revert.

This topic area is the place to discuss about it

 Waiting...

Please fix your signature. Yeah, I deleted sussy bots when mrsrec requested deletion on a page, but I reverted due to someone else reverting the deletion template.
