Welcome to the public Scratch Wiki forum topic!
We recommend that before you post anything, you read the Community Portal archives to see if your question has been answered. There are also FAQs below.
Types of posts that are cool
- Asking a question about the Wiki
- Answering a question someone has asked
- Constructive criticism on how the Wiki can improve (e.g. “I think this could be better like this” or “you're missing something here”)
- General suggestions
Types of posts that don't go here
Anything not directly related to the Wiki does not go on this topic. Please post them in their own topics.
- Questions about Scratch - please make a topic of your own in this forum, instead of posting here
- Asking for help with a project - please make a topic in the Help with Scripts subforum
- Suggestions for blocks to be added - please post in Suggestions
- Account troubles (e.g. bans) - please use Contact Us instead of posting anywhere
Types of posts that aren't cool
Anything that doesn't follow Community Guidelines is not okay for here, including:
- Disrespectful posts
- Posts with inappropriate content
- Spam or advertisements - keep that in the Show and Tell forum
- Destructive criticism (e.g. “the Wiki is stupid!” or “my account request was rejected! you're the worst people in the world”)
Q: I have a Scratch account! Why can't I sign in/edit the wiki?
A: You cannot edit/sign in because a Scratch account does not correspond to a Scratch Wiki account. You need to request for a Scratch Wiki account to edit. You can do so here: S:JOIN
Q: Why is the header color different than the Scratch header?
A: The Scratch Wiki is independently run, and is on different servers and a different domain. To distinguish the main website from the Wiki, the (default*) header color is different between the two sites.
* Logged in users are able to change the color of the header to their liking.
Q: How do I become an EW/admin/bureaucrat?
A: EWs are elected, usually every one to two years. Administrators are appointed by current administrators and/or bureaucrats, which typically happens during an election as well. Bureaucrats are either Scratch Team members or appointed (but far more infrequently - there has been a total of one occasion of bureaucrats being appointed in history).
