Kenny2scratch logo.jpgWelcome to the Scratch Wiki! I look forward to the useful edits you'll make and hope you'll have fun here. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me on my talk page, where you can talk about the Wiki, get my help with templates, or even ask personal questions, and more! If you need quick help with wiki markup, take a look at Scratch Wiki:Cheatsheet. You might want to go to Category:Articles to Expand to find pages that need editing. I get my inspiration from Special:RecentChanges however, so looking at that helps too. See you around, Daring_Sailor;

Your sig

Hey, I noticed that your signature shows up like this:
Drunken Sailor (talk | contribs)

when I assume it's supposed to be
Drunken_Sailor (talk | contribs)

You can change this by going to your preferences, typing <scratchsig>Drunken_Sailor</scratchsig> into "New signature:" and then press save, and you're done! From then on, when you do ~~~~ it'll show your real signature instead of the bugged-out one that you're using now.

Your bot archive

Hi! I noticed you made a bot archive! I suggest you take a look at the SW userscript I wrote for putting messages into it: User:Kenny2scratch/Project Guides/Bot Archiver. shameless self-promotion :D

Ah, thank you. That's what I was thinking of. :) Also, about the virus thing; I agree now, yes; it may scare some users. (DSICLAIMER: I didn't add the virus thing. I just added a rickroll link).
Drunken_Sailor (talk | contribs) 17:24, 9 July 2017 (UTC)
FYI, you properly added a colon before the link to the file in the text, but not in the heading. I've changed that now.

  • Minor mistake: "This page was designed for us in the Vector skin."
  • Science and ICT? Boi. (I'm near the top of the class for both too, but I just don't study :P)
  • Redstone?! BOI. I'm basically the redstone guy on Banana's server!
  • Music: Piano for me and that's about it.

It was interesting reading your newly revamped userpage :)

About User:Drunken Sailor/Pagesizes

You could always put the page sizes directly in your subpage list...

Hmm... Maybe. However, I did want to keep them separate to keep the "More" page cleaner and not filled with lots of numbers.

Thanks for welcoming me to the Wiki! I was just wondering how to make a page on the wiki :P. Thanks!

Kind regards, Lolli117

I accidentally deleted my welcome messages when I was editing my talk page. I regret it because I lost a few helpful links that someone sent me :( But yeah sorry I am not experienced with this format of wiki.

If you want to make a new page:
  1. Take a look at our new page policies to make sure that your page is allowed
  2. Go to the page title you want
  3. When it says "Sorry, this page doesn't exist", click the pencil and then click "Create"
  4. Start editing!
That should cover it, I think.

About British/American spellings

There's actually no guideline for which spelling you use - either one is fine in article content, just make sure you're consistent. However, article titles should use American spellings.

Why is your profile all Comic Sans?

Hi, I'm new here...

Hey, since you were the first person to ask comment on my talk page: can I ask you some questions? I was wondering how to do a bunch of stuff... First of all, does the wiki use BBcode, because it seems that, if it does, it's different to that of the forums. Also, how do you make sub-pages? I didn't understand from the article how to turn them on. Among other questions, how do I make a wiki account profile picture, does the Wiki have emojis (I think I remember seeing that you have to use a double square bracket image to access them?) and how do I get a box of contents on a page. Thanks in advance!
Auroura_Wolf (talk | contribs) 20:15, 9 August 2017 (UTC)

Wow, ok. First thing's first, welcome! :D
Sure! You can ask me questions anytime! :)
The Wiki does not use BBCode; it uses HTML, which is very similar. The main difference is that you use arrows (< and >) rather than square brackets ([ and ]) in your tags. Some basic HTML help can be found at Help:HTML.
To create a sub page, go to the desired page name under your Userspace,(https://wiki.scratch.mit.edu/wiki/User:Auroura_Wolf/PAGENAMEHERE) and click "Create" and boom! You can put whatever you want there! (As long as it follows the Community Guidelines)
Your Wiki profile picture should automatically update to your Scratch one. Open the drop-down menu by clicking your username and select "Preferences". Scroll down to the "Signature" section, and then tick the box that says "Treat signature as wikitext". Then type <scratchsig>Auroura Wolf</scratchsig>. Press save, and then your Wiki profile picture will automatically update to your Scratch one.
Yes, the Wiki does have emojis. A list of them and how to use them can be found in Category:Emoticon Templates.
A table of contents will automatically appear on a page that has over four main headers. To force a table of contents, put __TOC__ where you want the table of contents to appear.
Hope that cleared up all your questions! Feel free to ask more if you need to. :)
Drunken_Sailor (talk | contribs) 20:57, 8 August 2017 (UTC)
Sorry, I need to correct you on several things:
First, the Wiki does NOT use real HTML: it uses MediaWiki’s special syntax. A cheat sheet for codes is here.
To create a user subpage, navigate to the corresponding title (for example, User:Aurora_Wolf/Sandbox) and click the pencil, then “create”.
I already contacted you on your talk about your signature.
Emojis? Of course - find them here. @Drunken_Sailor: I fixed the link you made - you accidentally added your talk to the category!
A table of contents will appear automatically before the first heading if there are more than 4 headings - but if you have special needs for a TOC you can use __TOC__, which makes the TOC appear where you place that; or __FORCETOC__, which overrides everything and makes the TOC appear normally; or __NOTOC__, which makes sure that the TOC doesn’t exist.
Hope that clarified everything!

Drunken_Sailor (talk | contribs) 12:45, 9 August 2017 (UTC)
Ack, it's a hard life without snipping... Anyway, if I find an article saying 'we' or 'us' or anything else like that, should I fix it, because I remember seeing somewhere that the Wiki shouldn't use first or second person... TIA!
Auroura_Wolf (talk | contribs) 20:15, 9 August 2017 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Yes. First and second person should be avoided at all costs. See Scratch_Wiki:Editing_Conventions#Pronouns for more info.
Drunken_Sailor (talk | contribs) 20:20, 9 August 2017 (UTC)

Right. So I should edit this article about HTML to change places where it says 'we mentioned' or things like that? I'll go do that.
Auroura_Wolf (talk | contribs) 07:09, 10 August 2017 (UTC)
Yes! Well done on spotting an edit that needs to be made. :D
