New page for intro/outro

I think this is a big thing right know so should we have a main space article about intros/outros on one page or on two pages? Also will anyone help we write it?

Hmmmm, are you talking about a intro/outro to a project?

It should be a single article called "Intros and Outros." "Intro" and "Outro" should redirect to it.
Millie S.jpeg Millie S (talk|961 contribs|directory) 17:08, 25 July 2018 (UTC)
I think a single article, to which the searches "Intro" and "Outro" direct to, would be good. It would be useful to Scratchers who don't know what they are and might try to search for one or the other but want to know about both.

English Scratch Club

No Not done

The Scratch club is a weekly meeting among a group of Scratchers which are contributing actively to the Scratch Wiki and to Scratch in general. The meetings are used to discuss important issues, most notable was the discussion if the transition of the english Wiki should take place. Currently, the weekly meetings are held in German, but we used to have an international Scratch club following after the German one. An alternative could be to make it alternating every week between German and English. As a start, who of the English and international Wiki administrators would be interested in it and able to join? And what would be better: weekly every Monday at 9:00 PM CET or bi-weekly at 8:00 PM? Once I get a tendency about the if and when, I will bring it up at the next German Scratch club, perhaps already next Monday.

I would definitely like to join, but neither 8 or 9 PM CET work for me - I'm in Hong Kong, and 8PM CET is 3AM HKT... Best would be on weekends, since everyone's time is likely to be more flexible - on weekdays, we have work and school, but on weekends times that would normally be during work/school are usually ok. Would 2PM CET on Saturdays (or Sundays) be workable?

I know this has been inactive for a very long time.
Neither 8 or 9 PM CET work for me either, as they are 12 and 1 PM, which is in the middle of the school day, and I am busy on the weekends at that time. How about an "always open" meeting where you can post anytime?

Server Capacity

About two weeks ago, I could not access scratch-wiki.info for 24 hours. My internet connection was fine; the website just took too long to respond.

Today, when trying to view /Archive 66, I got a 503 Service Unavailable error. I reloaded the page and it worked. However, page load times are still a bit long. Occasionally, after about 50 page loads, the page load times start to get really long, up to ten seconds.

Does MartinWollenweber's server have enough capacity?
CrazyBoy826 icon.png CrazyBoy826 | Talk | 8,238 edits | Scratch 16:44, 6 August 2018 (UTC)

I think yes :-), but keep watching, if there are such kind of problems more often, I have to talk to our provider. It could help to create a list of such ocurannces to analyse it better.

Add Siggy Warner to MediaWiki:Common.js

So for those who don't know what Siggy Warner is, it's basically a JavaScript thing that pops up a confirmation box when you forget to sign, as well as adding a notice to previews when you don't sign. You can still deliberately omit the signature by either checking the "minor edit" box or typing "CONFIRM" when prompted.

Since forgetting to sign your post is one of the most common mistakes, I propose that instead of people opting into using my siggy warner, we add it to MediaWiki:Common.js as something that is loaded for all users. I think my siggy warner has reached a development status where it's ready to be included for everyone.

Potentially there could be a way to opt out of it, too - maybe by loading a user JS file that counteracts the effects of Siggy Warner.

What do you think about adding Siggy Warner to common.js?

User-generated content should not be included in the wiki's main code.
border=3px Daring Sailor [ Talk | Contribs | More... ] 15:07, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
@D_S: You are too late to say so - ScratchWikiSkin2 and Report Extension are user-generated. (you called Ken's Siggy Warner "user-generated", so these are also "user-generated".) Do you have any other reason?
Logo of Apple502j.jpg Apple502j Talk/Activities 2,243edit 13:45, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
Plenty of things that the Wiki itself relies on started off as user-generated things. This would be no exception. As apple rightfully points out, SWS2 and the Report extension are technically user-generated, as are WikiMonitor, TemplatesFTW, and other major parts. The only difference is that the "major" parts have been approved by the community to be a part of the Wiki itself and no longer counted as user-generated. By posting this, I am requesting that the community decide whether this should be moved into the main codebase and no longer simply a user-created script.

@Drunken jvvg has said he is fine with it, becasue it is less for him to maintain as he is really busy. @Asqwde Why no support? (Just wondering)
Jakel181 (talk | contribs) 16:10, 22 October 2018 (UTC)
(this indentation indicates a reply to @D_S) jvvg also noticed that I'm slowly integrating more WM functions into the core. He's fine with it, though, since it would be less for him to maintain. Actually, WM doesn't need to check file categories anymore, either - an abuse filter prevents file uploads without categories. But WM isn't anywhere near out of a job yet - it has curator updating and rapid edit detection, neither of which we can do regularly.
(this indentation indicates a reply to @asqwde) Why do you not support this, though?

3.0 Release: 2.0 "Archiving"

Hi everyone, just wanted to say - Scratch 3 gets released very soon, so that means that we need to make sure everything about 2.0 has been "archived" on the wiki. Are there any pages that need more info to do with 2.0? (e.g images?) Because after about a month, there won't be a chance to screenshot parts of the website etc.

EDIT: We'll also need to start a page on the development of Scratch 3.0 before the chance to screenshot parts of the beta is gone.
Redglitter Profile Picture Mini.gif Redglitter (Talk ~ Contributions ~ 541 edits) 16:08, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

I agree, we should have a 2.0 archive in some shape or form. Though we can still get most 2.0 editor images relatively easily because the offline editor is still available to be downloaded.
Jakel181 (talk | contribs) 22:33, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
Well, Scratch Wiki:3.0 Articles will come into play upon release... I think I'll supervise the transfer of those articles to mainspace while other EWs help out in other areas. (The details will be worked out later.)

So, I was looking at my contributions and I found that many of the contribs I did were on pages with the User: namespace or the User talk: namespace. I feel that this wouldn't show our contributions to the Wiki. Is there any ways to change this? Or is it from the mw software?
12944qwerty Logo.png 12944qwerty  Talk  Contribs  Scratch  18:08, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

Yes and Yes, :) Select the namespace as "User", then click "Invert selection", and "Associated Namespace" You can view it here. :)

That wasn't what I was completely looking for. I also want it to remove multiple namespaces than just one.

Not possible on the Special:Contributions page, but the usercontribs API module allows filtering multiple namespaces. This will get you your contributions (up to 500 of them, press the "continue" button to get more) in the (main), Talk, Scratch Wiki, and Scratch Wiki talk namespaces.

Everything you wanted to know about Snap!...

Yes Done

but never dared to ask, now it's your chance to directly talk to Brian Harvey, one of the developers of Snap!, from Uni Berkeley at the next Scratch Club. If you are interested in joining the Scratch Club (via Google hangout, you need to be 18+ or have your parent's consent) please contact us here. The next Scratch Club with Brian Harvey as guest will be on Wednesday, December 19, 2018, at 20:00 CET and will be held in English. If you cannot join, you can also post some questions to discuss here.

8pm CET is 3am HKT... I really want to join, but I'm likely not going to be able to. I'll leave questions here.
  • Snap! is too complicated for the age range of the vast majority of Scratchers, but for older ones like myself and many people here it's just right. Do you forsee Snap! being a teaching tool for teens the same way Scratch is for kids?
  • Scratch 3.0 is being released soon, and with it a cleaner and improved user interface design. Do you think an update to Snap! to mimic the new 3.0 design would be a good idea? (Minus the annoying parts of the design, such as the thicker blocks, and with modifications as you may see fit.)
That's all I have for the moment, but I'll definitely post more as I think of them.

QQ: Should I share this opportunity via Twitter?
Here are my questions about Snap:
  • How would you optimize Snap to solve mathematical problems/applications/computer science problems where large data sets are involved?
  • Do demonstrations in Snap help Students understand structures in other programming languages?
    Makethebrainhappy (talk | contribs) 22:25, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
I will ask your questions and protocol the answers. Regarding Twitter, the Scratch Club is very open to new people, but they should have some connection to our Wiki, so it depends who is addressed. Makethebrainhappy, are you going to join?

I'd love to but I am busy at that time. Twitter is our medium to communicate with other educators and adults who do not frequent the Scratch Wiki. Based on that description, I will refrain from putting a mention on Twitter. :)

Planned downtime at 07:00 UTC

All wikis will be put into read-only mode at 7:00 AM (UTC) to move the files between machines. This means that you will not be able to edit pages, upload files, or make any kind of database-modifying actions. This is so that you do not lose your work after the transfer. This transfer will have the advantage of giving us more control over our own systems.

We have seen issues caused by read-only mode before, including but not limited to broken file thumbnails. If you see any issues, feel free to take note of them and report them after the transfer is done, but most likely the issues will disappear once the wikis are no longer read-only.

Please add all approved Extensions to all Scratch Wikis

@kenny2Scratch: Could you please fulfill me a great wish an add all extensions (+ other version related stuff) that have been approved in the english Scratch Wiki to all other Scratch Wikis. This is a generalisation of my specific wish, please add mediawikiwiki:Extension:SyntaxHighlight to de:Special:Version#Installed extensions. I think it's best for all international Scratch Wikis to profit from Extensions that have been approved in other Wikis, mostly the en: Scratch WIki. In the (IMHO rarely) situation, that a Scratch Wiki community of a certain language doesn't want a certain Extension, it's easier to disable that Extension later, than to create a discussion process before (when nobody has seen the advantages of that new Extension). Thank you very much in advance!

Part of that will include symlinking all the wikis' extensions directories to one wiki's. Once I figure out how it's going to work, this will be done.

Errors whilst accessing the Scratch Wiki

On the Scratch Wiki, after the Scratch Website was put into Maintainance Mode, I frequently saw some 508 "Resource Limit Reached" errors. Does anyone know the cause for this?
Jammum (talk | contribs) 13:18, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

No concrete cause, only speculation. My suspicion is that now that the website is down, people are turning to the Wiki... but we're not equipped to handle that kind of traffic, so we're borking as well. Martin's emailed me, and I've emailed him... but any solution would involve contacting the server provider and that takes time. Nothing to be done at present.

DeleteThisAcount (talk | contribs) 14:57, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
Some parts of the navbar (like the Scratch Logo) are missing because those parts are hosted on the Scratch Website. The Scratch Website is currently down to switch from Scratch 2.0 to 3.0, which also means that images stored on it cannot be accessed by anyone or anything. The CDN containing user profile images are still available, as only the main Scratch Website (not any subdomains) is down for maintainance.

If you click on a double redirect, the first redirect works properly, but it just pauses at the second one and you have to manually click it. This prevents infinite redirects.

Gifs are known to be troublesome. Likely the server ran out of memory when trying to shrink it to size. But using gifs in your signature is against custom signature guidelines anyway (they get too flashy if we allow gifs) - just use a static armamemedillo.

No, no pictures! We have a reference format for comments:
Username. (D/M/YYYY). "Relevant quote from comment." https://scratch.mit.edu/users/link_to_comment#comments-12345678
If you can't fetch the quote because the comment is so old, then unfortunately there's nothing to be done. Whatever material that references the comment will have to be assumed to be verifiable by the comment, unless proven otherwise.

Scratch 3.0 should be faster at loading comments though...? A new thing it does is instead of loading all of the comments leading down to it, it only shows the comment you clicked the link to and has a "see all comments" button.

Scratch 3.0 Controversy

On the Scratch Website, I've seen many Scratchers (I don't know how much) critisizing Scratch 3.0. Should the wiki mention critisism of Scratch 3.0?

Blocks in articles should display smaller

The current blocks plugin has resulted in significantly larger blocks than we had in the previous version. In fact, they are even larger than the blocks in the Scratch editor. Measuring on my screen, the Glide () Secs to () block is 40px tall in the editor (measured from the highest to lowest pixel), while in the blocks plugin, it is 58px tall. This is almost 50% larger. You can see the difference below:

Block height difference.png

In that image, the block on the left is from the editor, while the block on the right is from the blocks plugin. This is resulting in the blocks not only being larger than in the editor, but so large that they are becoming distracting from the actual text. Therefore, I propose requesting to the current creator of the blocks plugin that the blocks be made smaller. This will result both in the blocks more accurately resembling what you see in the editor and having them be less distracting from the text in articles. They would look something like this:

Smaller Scratchblocks.png What do people think?

I implemented a fix for this on the Wiki extension when it was added, so I'm confused - are you talking about the forums plugin or the blocks as displayed on the Wiki? Because on the Wiki it looks like this:

glide () secs to ( v)Block height difference.png

Three blocks - left is actual rendered inline scratchblocks; middle is the "small" block in the image in the OP; right is the "big" block in the OP image.
Kenny2scratch logo.jpg kenny2scratch  Talk  Contribs  Directory 
01:24, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
I'm talking about blocks as displayed on the Wiki. The big block in the image is how the blocks display for me on the Wiki (latest version of Firefox on Windows 10). They should display in a size more like what they appear like in the program (small block in the image) or possibly slightly smaller.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 02:56, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

Scratch Block Images

So, I thought we were basically done with converting things to 3.0. The thing is, most block pages show 2.0 style blocks. For example, look here. Before I updated the picture, it was a 2.0 file. Are these supposed to be like this or should we update them all?
EIephant_Lover (talk | contribs) 00:10, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

We should update the images. However, the current image filenames include "2.0", so we should upload them under new files (like "3.0 () - ().png" or whatever) and keep the older ones for historical purposes.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 02:57, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
Okay. I've updated a few of them already, can you undo image updates?
EIephant_Lover (talk | contribs) 18:52, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
I already restored the old versions. The versions you uploaded are still there under the file history, so you can re-upload those under new filenames.

Experimental caching

I have enabled file caching in MediaWiki in order to improve performance. The basic idea is that once a page is converted from Wiki markup to HTML code once, it just saves the result and uses that all future times the page is requested rather than parsing it again.

This shouldn't affect most of you too much, but you will probably notice this:

  • When you load a page for the first time after editing it or if it hasn't been opened by anyone in a while, it will take slightly longer to load
  • Every time you or someone else loads a page after that, it will load slightly faster

Please let me know if any issues come up from this.

Yes, when I saved my page it didn't save, and it didn't load any pages after that for around 4 hours (this happened in the morning). It just showed a dead loading thingy on the tab of the page.
Jedibrine (talk | contribs) 01:30, 19 January 2019 (UTC)
Let me clarify multiple things here:
Operating system and browser are irrelevant to loading issues.
Delays and slowdowns are being caused by the database, not caching.
I think I've narrowed down the cause for the syntax highlighting for the editor not working all the time: it only activates when the URL parameters are exactly "?title=...&action=edit", no more, no less. (Hypothesis, as yet untested.) Again, not caused by caching.
Let me explain what caching is so that you don't treat it as a black box that causes all problems. Here's the process for our current system of caching. When a page loads:
  1. First, the kind of user is determined. If the user is not an anonymous user, no caching is done. No logged-in user is shown a cached page, i.e. none of your troubles could be caused by caching because you are logged in and are therefore ignored by caches! (Additionally, anonymous users who have unchecked talk page messages are also not shown cached pages, but anonymous users cannot possibly have talk page messages on this wiki so that is irrelevant.)
  2. Second, the kind of page is determined. Caching is only done for pages that:
    • are not special pages (i.e. pages that start with "Special:")
    • are not redirects
    • are being viewed in the current version (latest revision), normal wiki view, no URL parameters, nothing but the page itself.
  3. Third, MW checks whether there is a cached version of the page. (These are stored as HTML files in a directory.)
    • If there is, that gets directly served and the request ends there.
    • If there is not:
    1. The page's content is retrieved from the database.
    2. The retrieved content is saved in the cache directory.
    3. The cached content is served the same way it would if it was already cached.
There is no way that caching could be causing any of your problems because, once more, it is not done for logged-in users. Try to investigate further as to the cause of problems instead of just assuming "oh, it's just that 'caching' thing again".

Actually, linking to ST profiles is a new feature, not an old bug - it was added in this pull, because of (or maybe unrelated to, I don't actually know) this topic of mine. The point is, it links now, so I was able to use that. In fact, quick JS snippet for future updating:

var res = ''
for (var child of $('#view > div > div.content > div.people > ul').children) {
    res += '* ' + child.children[1].innerText + ' ([' + child.children[0].children[0].href + ' ' + child.children[0].children[0].href.slice(30, -1) + '])\n';

Just copy and paste into the console.

Scratch 1.4 on RPi for me: no, I use my RPi as a server. And because there's Scratch 2.0 on Pis now I doubt anyone will ever use it. If you see someone asking around on the forums about the GPIO extension, then it may be time to consider it, but before that it's not worth it. I don't think there's even much to say about it besides the fact that you can interact with GPIO devices...

Suggestions for AbuseFilter

I would like AbuseFilter to prevent:

  • Signatures being in mainspace articles
  • Userspace being in categories

Jammum (talk | contribs) 17:47, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

I believe that Abuse Filter is a mw extension. You would have to consult mw if you want it changed.
12944qwerty Logo.png 12944qwerty  Talk  Contribs  Scratch  18:32, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
You don't have to consult media wiki to have it changed! You (Bureaucrats)(as far as I know only they can change it on the sw) can add filters to it to make it custom to your need.
This seem like they could be helpful, though as for the second one there may be a few categories that set it off mainly a few of the Category:Hidden categories and Category:Open User Pages. Though, it might not be necessary to add these because I have never seen those things happen (expect for the categories mentioned above). Have you seen it happen before?

@apple your post broke, I fixed it
Before adding either of these, are there any legitimate reasons for putting signatures in mainspace or for adding userpages to categories?
Off the top of my head I can't think why signatures would go in mainspace (they do go in subject pages, but not specifically mainspace), so I'd probably do that, but then there's also the problem of figuring out what's actually a signature. But are there any pages that need signatures (even as example sigs)?
Adding userpages to categories is harder. That filter apple posted only detects manual categories, but it doesn't work for templates that add categories. There's really no good way of knowing when a page is put into a category without using a lot of magic. Besides, the rare cases that people decide to categorize their userpages will be walked all over by anyone who pays attention to RC anyway, so I don't think it's worth adding a filter for.

That's not a manual category, which is all that any abuse filter would be able to detect... is there any legitimate use for putting a [[Category:Thing]] in any page?

Scratch Wiki Server and Edit Conflict Problem

Yes Done Internet on the Scratch Wiki has been extremely slow for me for a few days. I'm on Windows 10, and Chrome, Firefox, and Edge are all slow. Because the internet is so slow, it started to load, but then I ended it because I had to do something else. The second time it fully saved, but I had an edit conflict with myself, maybe because the other save went far enough into the process that it actually succeeded.

We just downgraded the PHP version to 7.1 from 7.2 since PHP 7.2 is known to cause unnecessary load on webservers. This shouldn't impact functionality since MediaWiki still supports PHP 7.1. Please let us know if any problems come up (or if this results in better performance for everyone).

@jvvg: The Extensions like BlockPlugin and also Accounting seem not to work anymore in DE and EN, but work in HU and FR...frodewin changend "localsettings.php" at the HU sysopsite by just outcomenting the Extentions and changed it back accidentaly at the same time you downgraded PHP. Ken introduced "commonsettings.php" as a shared part of "localsettings.php" at EN and DE about a wee ago, but not in FR and HU...so I suppose frodewins test with the HU-"localsettings.php" had no influence, but your downgrade in combination with Kens "commonsettings.php" was the reason that the Extension don't work properly at the moment...strange...or it's just because EN and DE use versions of the Extentions that don't work with PHP 7.1 whereas HU and FR do work with 7.1...

Redirect appears before actual article?

I looked up "terms of use" (without capitalization) and it brought me to this page. As you can see, the first link is a redirect page to Terms of Use. The second is the actual Terms of Use page. Why doesn't "terms of use" redirect to "Terms of Use" or at least have the actual article appear before the redirect? Is this supposed to be like this, or should all pages not capitalized correctly just lead to the search page?

@EIephan Lover - Normally people would search with proper capitilization. If they don't, they can click on the similar title link. However, if you feel people would search for 'terms of use' more often than with capitilization, you can create a redirect page.
@jedibrine - Any logged in user has the privilege to redirect pages. Your just have to type in #REDIRECT [[LINK]] on the very first line. Nothing should come before it.

Okay. I figured most people (like me) wouldn't worry about capitalization when searching. It makes sense for links, but the average Joe I would assume doesn't think "Oh oops let me make sure that this search has proper grammar, and that I didn't forget any capitalization!" Personally, I think we should make it so that capitalization doesn't matter when searching, but still does for links.
Besides, a redirect shouldn't come before the a risk article anyway.

Capitalization doesn't affect searching. As to why the redirect appeared first, the simple answer is that "Scratch Terms of Use" is sorted alphabetically before "Terms of Use". Q R S, T U V. ;)

What I meant by capitalization not affecting searching is that if you're brought to the search page, then the capitalization of the search won't matter. If you search with the correct caps, you're brought directly to the page, but otherwise you'll still find the page. (Basically, the "Terms of Use" page will not be missing from search results just because you searched "terms of use".)

You mean in the table of contents? No, but why would you want to?
If you mean in the actual headings, you must have the "Auto-number headings" preference turned on (scroll to the bottom of that link). Turn it off again to get rid of the numbers.

If it allowed using the 2.0 editor, it doesn't anymore - viewing uploads.scratch.mit.edu/projects/* redirects to the main site. But I don't think it's significant enough to merit an article of its own, as there really isn't enough info on it.

Suggestions for Scratch are off-topic here, but suggestions for the Wiki can be raised as a CP topic as normal. I've done so many times in the past, both as a normal user and an admin; you can do so too.
As for people's opinions, yes, usually the way people express opinions is to state the opinion and then explain the rationale - so the "support because..." thing is not a Suggestions-specific response type but a general response to any motion.

Slowing down CT

Hi there! On the last CT Martin (User:MartinWollenweber) had an interesting idea,

โ€œ I'm a big fan of motivating things like "Compliment Tuesday" but couldn't it be more effective, if we decrease the times per year say down to 4 or 2? It's more motivating honored and to be honored rarely by manny than often by just a few... โ€

Doing it every 6 months seems too far apart, but if we do it once a month, say the first Tuesday of the month, it's often enough that I don't forget, but not too often that it is not that effective. What are your opinions on this?

Should "Griffpatch" become a wiki article?

Yes Done

Now, I know that you're not supposed to create articles about users and all, but arguably, griffpatch is now a part of Scratch culture. The same goes for "Kaj"; they have an article, and they were a user once. However, since they became part of Scratch culture, they were allowed to have a topic made for them. So, we at the Discord chat have all been thinking about what to do. What are your thoughts on the matter? Of course, we would probably have to contact griffpatch about it to see if they're OK with it first.
WolfCat67 (talk | contribs) 04:01, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

I've put the logs of the Discord conversation here for anyone that can't access it. I will say that I don't really mind that much whether we choose to make a Griffpatch article or delete the Kaj one, but I definitely do think that we should be consistent. I would argue that Griffpatch would actually make for a better article than Kaj, as it doesn't have that teasing element to it. It's also undeniable that Griffpatch is a huge part of Scratch culture nowadays, while Kaj is honestly dieing out a bit.
Hamish752 (talk | contribs) 04:11, 27 June 2017 (UTC)
So far, it seems like the reasoning for a griffpatch article is that he's massively popular, that he has the most popular Scratch project, he has a massive whitelist for chat projects, etc...
This is not what the wiki is for. It's not a popularity contest.
However, on that note, an article is allowable on other grounds. For example, the griffpatch problem. The ST acknowledged that many new Scratchers have trouble because they aim too high.
If there was more content in this direction, a griffpatch article would be acceptable.
ErnieParke (talk | contribs) 04:25, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

This definition is tangable in a sense concerning all the above mentioned topics. "Kaj" became "sponsored" when the Scratch Team used him to describe an important point to the community. My impression is that this wiki is not about what really occurs in the community but more about what the Scratch Team does and the projects which they decide to back. Studios and collaborations are "sponsored" when they are set up by the Scratch Team and/or run by them. Forums have articles because they were set up by the Scratch Team, and so forth. My worry is that if we change this definition to what we define as "Scratch culture" I believe we lose the philosophy which has been held here. How we define "Scratch culture" is much less clear than the previous definition which I layed out. :) Now this does open up many new topics which may deserve articles because an argument can be made that they were "sponsored". The "griffpatch effect" as mentioned by ErnieParke may be an active problem that the Scratch Team is concerned with, and therefore deserves an article. Does "Griffpatch" deserve an article? No, b/c then we would need to write articles for many, many more community entities that deserve such. "WazzoTV" or "HobsonTV", with over 10,000 followers each may need articles as well. It would change our focus from being wiki editors to being wiki journalists, constantly updating and adding articles based on the newest cultural changes. Just my two cents on the matter ;)

Okay... First of all, the community guidelines clearly forbid making pages on other users. Kaj was an exeption because he/she made a huge mark on scratch History. Griffpatch has not done that, he's just a pop culture icon on scratch. Second of all, the point of the wiki is to make informative articles on features of the website, and the editor. Griffpatch does not fit into that. third of all, griffpatch is merely one of the many scratch culture icons that still exist. If we are going to delve into pop culture as a part of the wiki, as Makethebrainhappy told us, the wiki is going to turn into a magazine, with all wiki editors becoming journalists. Fourth of all, there are many other exellent scratchers out there. We only consider griffpatch because he is more noticed. Other exellent scratchers may feel discouraged after seeing the extent of icons fame, while they don't have that kind of fame. And last of all, creating this page would go against all the principles of scratch. Scratch was not created as a site to collect fame and popularity. As a matter of fact, fame is often discouraged on scratch, as the whole point of scratch is a place where everyone can share, get feedback on their projects, and overall, become a balanced community. It just doesn't seem fair to make an article on him/her when there are scratchers out there that nobody knows exists.
Knitt (talk | contribs) 03:39, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
There are points to be made for this, though. Griffpatch has almost become as much a community phenomenon as Kaj has become. In Scratch, "griffpatch" and "fame" have almost become synonymous (and "kaj" and "hacker" have a similar synonimity). I think a previous point about the griffpatch effect is valid - so many Scratchers face problems because they try and fail to be as famous as griffpatch. We could potentially have the article "Griffpatch Effect" rather than just "griffpatch" for such a phenomenon, though.
I think, however, that the most major point in my mind against "griffpatch" itself being an article is that a mainspace article must be about Scratch. For example, the Scratch Welcoming Committee has an article (even though it's a studio!) because it's an actual part of Scratch itself, rather than the community. Imagine adding "on Scratch" after every article title, e.g. "Kaj on Scratch". That makes sense, right? Kaj, on Scratch, has become a major part of Scratch itself. Or e.g. "Scratch Wiki on Scratch". That also makes sense - it's about the part that the Scratch Wiki plays on Scratch itself. Or e.g. "How to Find a Minimum and Maximum Number on Scratch". That makes even more sense (and more grammatical sense too!), since it talks about how to find a minimum and maximum number, using Scratch. But "Griffpatch on Scratch"? That doesn't make sense - griffpatch himself hasn't had any effect on Scratch itself, only the community. "Griffpatch Effect on Scratch", however, would be much less ambiguous - it would specifically talk about the griffpatch effect on Scratch, not griffpatch's effect on Scratch.
TL, DR: I think griffpatch doesn't really deserve a mainspace article, but "Griffpatch Effect" might.

I think griffpatch isn't the only person to have had such a massive impact on scratch culture. What about WazzoTV? Hobson_TV? Kevin_11_1234? They have aslo made their way into a hypothetical 'hall of fame'. Instead, I feel it would be better to create a page on scratch culture, and include all of these guys/gals in the page.

  • Feel discouraged because they're not as advanced as him
  • Feel down about how they aren't as popular
  • Feel like they must delete their account
  • We'll become journalists
  • We have to constantly update the article for new facts, details, numbers, etc.
  • We'll have a bunch of comments on our Scratch profiles like do this and do that.
  • We willl become a newspaper, not a Wiki.
  • There will be no fun in editing anymore.

I disagree with the idea. It breaks the wiki guidelines. While kaj was famous, it was a point in time. Griffpatch is not a point in time. We'd just make a wiki page about how awesome he is.
10:39, 24 June 2018 (UTC)
Neutral support. Although Griffpatch is famous and I wouldn't be surprised to find a wiki article on him after thinking about it we need to think about what could happen. If Griffpatch retired from Scratch to join the Wiki it'd be a little awkward to have an article on a Scratch wiki member. It also seems like the kind of page that would have a talk page flooded with offtopic threads, which just gets annoying after a while. It'd be pretty difficult to maintain and could easily be vandalized without anyone knowing the information was wrong. So, neutral support, leaning on the no support side.

I personally think that although Griffpatch is a famous scratcher, if we made a article on Griffpatch then that could bring up more arguments on adding wazzoTV, will_wam etc... However I would support a possible article on the griffpatch effect and keeping the Kaj article as Kaj is becoming more a more popular topic on Scratch. Also, if we add articles on scratch users that would mean we are:
  • Becoming journalists and a newspaper, not editors and a wiki
  • All those other reasons that NYCDOT listed above.
  • Wasting lots of server space that we will need a lot because of adding 3.0 articles.
  • And more...

So yeah. I wopuldn't support a Griffpatch article although a Griffpatch Effect article would be interesting.

@Logabe: I know perfectly well what the disadvantages of adding articles on Scratch users is, and the OP made it perfectly clear that they think the disadvantages are negligible.

I actually think that having an article on Griffpatch, or at least the "Griffpatch Effect", might not be such a bad idea. There's an article on Kaj, and Griffpatch's influence on Scratch has arguably been greater than that of Kaj's. Having an article on Griffpatch doesn't mean that we must make one for every other popular user - Griffpatch is THE user that most Scratchers associate with popularity.

No. "WazzoTV may want one", sure, but does that mean we'll create it? Nope. A "griffpatch" article would be a one-time exception, decided on by Wiki editors, not because "griffpatch may want one". We have a policy against pages about users for a good reason, and it is only because of griffpatch's immense popularity that we are even considering an exception to the rule. I think I remain (or if I wasn't before, I am now) neutral on a Griffpatch article. On one hand, it would likely answer questions people want answered and fill a gaping search gap. On the other hand, it would be an exception to a rule, and invite hostility towards Griffpatch for his popularity. He already has to deal with enough hate comments (that people quickly report, but still) for his popularity alone - do we want to condemn him to more disparagement for having a Wiki article?
A "Griffpatch Effect" article I feel more positive towards. It's a topic worth documenting. Though perhaps it shouldn't be associated with a specific user and instead have a different name, like "Popularity Effect" or something.

Well, I'm not a big editor, but i sort of support this, griffpatch is a very popular scratcher, and he has over 80000 followers, and i think saying somthing like 'griffpatch is not a regular scratcher and no new scratchers will ever get that good' may counter the effect of making others feel like they are not good enough, and we probably shouldnt make it until he's been here for longer
Seam49 (talk | contribs) 10:21, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
I would like to say something. While all of us were discussing this, a question has not come to our minds. What does @griffpatch say about all of this. I think before discussing whether we should make an article about him or not, I think we should ask him whether he wants one or not.

Knitt (talk | contribs) 14:33, 20 December 2018 (UTC)

I've commented a link to this discussion on his profile before... he didn't respond, so either he has no comment or he didn't see it in his flood of messages.

I agree, if we do choose to make an article for griffpatch, we should at least get his consent.
I still do not support though. If he stops using the account, then we could make it.

I'm neutral on the griffpatch article. Leaning towards support on the griffpatch effect, though. My main problem with the latter is that if you talk about how Scratchers aim for griffpatch standards yet rarely get anywhere near close, isn't that really, really discouraging? That sounds like telling someone lots of people have fallen walking a tightrope right as the person you're talking to takes their first step. But as long as you don't do it in an almost put-down way, it should be okay. Make a note or something about how it shouldn't discourage you. And about the other people wanting articles, I agree with kenny2scratch. Just because they want one doesn't mean we need to give them one, right? griffpatch won't even respond; we're not making this for him, but for wondering Scratchers who hear about griffpatch and come to the wiki looking for answers. griffpatch doesn't say he's the most followed user on his profile, right? So they may not know that. griffpatch has definitely left a mark on Scratch, whether he's active or not. He has almost four times as many followers as the second- and third-most followed, so that shouldn't be an issue (for making an article for them and others).

MClovers (talk | contribs) 20:59, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

We could put something like this maybe:
Yes check.png This section would normally break the Scratch Wiki's guidelines. However, an exception has been made for it because this user has been considered notable and important to the site.

and use it like that? Should we do some sort of poll on this?
EIephant_Lover (talk | contribs) 00:52, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

This topic isn't about how to include griffpatch as an article, but whether to include him at all. That header should only be included if we decide to make a griffpatch article in the first place.

I'm well aware, see my original reply above. I was just saying that if we end up doing the article (possibly with some sort of poll of editors?) we would probably have to use that template.

I think that since griffpatch is still an active user, we shouldn't make an article about him. Kaj only has one because he's gone, and part of Scratch culture.

Jakel181 (talk | contribs) 22:13, 31 January 2019 (UTC)
I would say it has changed Scratch a lot. Some for the better, some for the worse. But especially Scratch culture-wise, since "a griffpatch" or "griffpatch-level" is practically ubiquitous (totally not using big words to sound smart, I just couldn't find the right word :P). Basically, it's common knowledge that griffpatch is really good at Scratch and a griffpatch is someone with lots of followers or good projects. I'd say that "griffpatch" could almost be a real word on Scratch. [Griffpatch: 1. a Scratcher who is particularly good at game-making or project building 2. a Scratcher who has acquired an abundance of followers, typically for good content rather than "F4F" or similar. Used in a sentence: Will_Wam is practically a griffpatch, his projects are so good!] But most Scratchers know who griffpatch is (a good Scratcher), but some Scratchers don't (like most know about the sound editor and some don't). They may come to the Wiki and look up "griffpatch", maybe because someone has used griffpatch as a word and they viewed the profile but didn't find anything totally precise or certain about why griffpatch might be used as a word like it is common knowledge. It would be beneficial to create this article. I've heard people use griffpatch as a word, but never Spidertest or Will_Wam or kevin_eleven_1234. Griffpatch is notable to Scratch. Now that I've thought about it more, almost full-on support. Just as long is it doesn't seem discouraging. (I just had an idea... we could make a Scratch dictionary! Like, not on the Wiki, but ask the ST and start something sort of like how the Wiki was started.)

Good job asking permission, though personally I would have liked it if he had said no so we could be done with this ._.

Let me re-look at this once more. IMO,

Points for a Griffpatch article
  • Griffpatch is very well known, and probably "griffpatch" is a popular search term (now checking with MakeTheBrainHappy to confirm), so this would satisfy many people's curiosities
  • Griffpatch has had a large-scale effect on people's perception of fame, and he also has made significant contributions to the actual Scratch codebase.
Points against a Griffpatch article
  • Other Scratchers (famous or not) might start lobbying for an article of their own
  • Against Wiki guidelines, and lots of questions stem from exceptions
Points for a Griffpatch Effect article
  • Wouldn't break guidelines or be an exception to them
  • More general, and can apply to more than just griffpatch
  • A lot to write about
Points against a Griffpatch Effect article
  • Quite abstract, may end up like Fame

I'd be in support of a "Griffpatch Effect" article but not a "Griffpatch" article. Make of that what you will.

08:02, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

I don't think he should have one. Anyway, the Wiki says that pages shouldn't be created specifically for users (except a few exceptions). Anyway, griffpatch is just another scratcher. If he has one, then why not everyone else? Also, having a griffpatch effect wouldn't be great as it is an opinion. This so-called effect isn't an effect and I don't think it should become an article. Sure, he has a lot of followers, and I'll admit, I love his projects, but an article would be going to far.

Unless the reviver has a very good point to make for either Griffpatch or Griffpatch Effect, we're just going to point them back to this discussion and close the topic.
The number of support/no support replies is irrelevant to whether something should actually happen, which is precisely why we're not doing a poll! Perhaps there have been 10 replies against, but not enough have had a strong point to make against the article, so this remains undecided, hence why I'm unilaterally setting a deadline for actually logical replies.
It's decided, then. Those who have a point to make, speak now (before February 17th) or forever hold your peace.

One block might just delay the scrolling for about one frame, but on a page with hundreds or thousands of blocks like List of Block Workarounds, it lags for about 0.25 seconds.

The List of Block Workarounds takes forever to even load, and longer to render the blocks for me. After that it goes relatively smoothly except for a few frame lag-spikes every now and then.

Edit MediaWiki:Logouttext

On the page I mentioned in the header of this page, it said that a user can log in again as a different user. On the Scratch Wiki, users cannot have another account (unless it is for a bot). I would like the MediaWiki:Logouttext content edited to remove the bit about logging in as a different user.

Change code word in S:CONTRIB

I was browsing scratch last night and I saw someone mention the actual code word in a comment so had about joining the wiki. I'll see if I can find the comment where it was mentioned.

Yes, I think it was on Scratch profile's

No, It wasn't that, (Though I saw what you where talking about.) The person said that you had to include the word to join the wiki directly to the other person.

Revision History on User Page

Hello! Can someone delete my last revision history on my user page? I added some sites a long time ago, and they are not approved, so I just removed them. Thanks!

I deleted the penultimate revision and the one before it so that the diff doesn't show what you did, but I'm afraid there are too many revisions before that that included the link for me to delete. I've Yes Done what I can, though.
