As stated in the account request instructions, your account needs to be at least two months old, while your account only appears to be one month old. Additionally, before submitting a request, please make sure to read the other instructions on that page or your request will likely be rejected.

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?
you get a message in your scratch account

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”)

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).

It does not say anything on S:CONTRIB about an age restriction.

Due to state testing, I won't be able to be as active as I usually am. You can still leave messages on my profile, but please note that it will take a while for me to respond.

For elections, a good track record for all time is too restrictive for users who have learned from their blocks. How about a good track record for all of 6 months prior to the start of the election.

Due to the large amount of responsibilities placed on EWs, we believe the current requirements are sufficient and do not need to be relaxed.

There is no such requirement. We do not have any age requirement at all. In general we expect the equivalent of a middle school (ages 11-14 or so) level of English writing ability, but we will allow anyone that can write at that level regardless of their actual age or grade in school.

It's the same as it has been for the past several years - a number of the articles will be replaced with joke versions of themselves. You can see them here if you are interested (or avoid going there if you want it to be a surprise).

We are aware of the problem. Unfortunately it is a problem with our hosting provider and there is not much we can do in the meantime.
