Yes Resolved (since an unknown date)

I think these need to be rewritten, and maybe redone. I hope this catches the bureaucrats' attention.

Experienced?

Yes Resolved (since 21:27, 9 September 2013 (UTC))

Define "Experienced Wikian" for me.

An experienced Wikian is basically a Wikian who can be trusted, and therefore is given several rights. They aren't as powerful as admins or bureaucrats, but they can do things like approve accounts, delete pages (though not view them), move files, ect... :
  • Delete pages (delete)
  • Mark others' edits as patrolled (patrol)
  • Move files (movefile)
  • Quickly rollback the edits of the last user who edited a particular page (rollback)
  • View the queue with requested accounts (confirmaccount)

Why you shouldn't contact Scmb1 on her profile page

Yes Resolved (since 14:11, 28 September 2014 (UTC))

Like I said in the original edit, she does not want people to contact on her profile.

That's only for sensitive stuff (like stuff dealing with specific users). For general stuff (e.g. I recently was talking about the upcoming election with her), profile is ok.

Yeah, what jvvg said is pretty much exactly why I added it.

Should this sentence stay?

Yes Resolved (since 13:30, 25 April 2018 (UTC))

I saw @Drunken_Sailor and @Banana439monkey undoing each other’s edits repeatedly so I thought maybe we could discuss whether that sentence is necessary here before acting further :)

As a bureaucrat, Yes I've made an executive decision to keep it. It clarifies the rest of the relevant section and also serves as a mini-disclaimer - otherwise people would get mad saying "u bad u removed my info!!1!" (not that that actually happens, but better safe than sorry).

The section about edit wars

Yes Resolved (since 06:28, 18 May 2020 (UTC))

"...the first user brings it up on the talk page to discuss and clarify why he was reverted."
This needs to change to:
"...the first user brings it up on the talk page to discuss and clarify why they were reverted."

Add using Show preview or discouragement of making too many edits in one time

 Unresolved (see all...)
Sort of unresolved. -Dhuls

It seems to be quite common that new Wiki users get WikiMonitor warning about making lots of edits in a short time and clogging edit histories. I think something telling users to use Show preview when editing or discouraging making too many edits in a short time could be added here, so it is more likely new Wiki users can know about them. A new section might have to be created (I do not think it would fit in the existing headings on this page).

If this were to be done, I think it could go in a new section called something along the lines of 'Editing the wiki'.

I'm not sure that fits within the guidelines, since we want to keep this page as short as possible and clearly defined as what the Wiki is/is not. I think a WikiMonitor notification when they first start editing should be sufficient for most users. Remember that WM notifications aren't like Scratch alerts, they're more just friendly reminders.

Some rudeness for other wikis

 Unresolved (see all...)

A professional encyclopedia for all things Scratch

Professional?

Maybe remove that word, that might cause battles between the Scratch Wiki and other wikis. And the battle method might be severe vandalism, like putting all the articles in scratchblocks, like this:

Scratch wiki

The scratch wiki is a wiki about scratch.

Purpose

For learning about Scratch.

into:

==Scratch wiki==
The scratch wiki is a wiki about scratch.
==Purpose==
For learning about Scratch.

or:

Scratch wiki

The scratch wiki is a wiki about scratch.

Purpose

For learning about Scratch.

Can you please clarify? And remember, vandalism is rare, due to how getting accounts works.

The term "professional" serves to indicate that we have a well-established system for operating this Wiki and that we hold ourselves to high standards. This is not to say there are not plenty of other Wikis that don't do the same thing, but there are others that have significantly lower standards with regards to organization, content quality, etc. There is also nothing inherently wrong those Wikis and they all have something to contribute to public knowledge, but we want to make it clear that we have an established system and standards to ensure high quality content.
