Scratch Wiki Community Portal - in the forums!

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 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”)

FAQs

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).

Have fun!

Make your post now! We welcome questions and suggestions of any kind

Hey there! This sounds super cool! But I have a question that has been on my mind for a while:
If you sign up for a Wiki account or if you get accepted, do you get an email about all of this Wiki stuff?

Actually, if your account is accepted you get an email with a temporary password to log in with; there are also options for additional email notifications that are off by default.

Because not all Scratchers can use the CP! You can only use the CP if you have a wiki account - for here you only need to have a Scratch account, so questions can come more directly.

Great job! Why did did it transfer to the new domain? Also, if I sign up to be a Wiki Editor, what am I supposed to do?(I know there's an application process)
One more thing, AgentQuirt becoming FPC was shown a few days late. Why?

That was due to WikiMonitor being turned off by a vandal. WikiMonitor has a script that detects new curators and adds them to the section. It also removes the least recent event, I believe.

The rationale for the transfer can be found in the Wiki CP topic here.

The application process can be found here.
