Welcome to my talk page!

I was using that page

They haven't made me an admin yet, and I really wasn't done improving that page. Could it be unprotected since ths wiki is still under construction? U W N (talk) 21:54, 30 October 2015 (MET)

OK, I unprotected it. Just be warned that once this opens for real, we will have to protect it, though you will probably have admin privileges at that point.

You're talking about the frontpage, right? Sorry, but is it really necessary to protect the frontpage? We don't have it protected in any other wiki either... - LiFaytheGoblin (talk) 23:07, 30 October 2015 (MET)
Yeah, this is about the front page. We actually do have it protected on the English Wiki, as it is a page that doesn't need to change very frequently and any change that does occur can be easily be done by an admin, but it is a very important page that we want to make sure always looks nice.

Well, I have seen many mods of confirm account. Does yours automatically create them as autoconfirmed? The original does, so if you haven't changed it, say yes. U W N (talk) 00:10, 31 October 2015 (MET)

Well, actually, I'm going to be a technical admin, so I don't know if I will be getting sysop. I'll have to re-consult with Martin. U W N (talk) 00:14, 31 October 2015 (MET)

It does create users as autoconfirmed users. However, since there really is no reason for non-admins to edit the page at all, we figured it would be safer to protect it for admins only. Also, I am actually a "technical" admin too. Though I am working on setting up the Wiki itself, I actually mostly do code work. For example, so far I have upgraded the version of MediaWiki, retrofitted the Scratch Wiki Skin to work on MediaWiki 1.25, and set up the Scratch-modded version of ConfirmAccounts here.

Well, would you mind setting up a protect level where only members of the project can edit? Code is this: $wgRestrictionLevels[] = 'DACHadmins';
$wgGroupPermissions['DACHadmins']['DACHadmins'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['DACHadmins']['protect'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['DACHadmins']['unprotect'] = true;
$wgAddGroups['DACHadmins'][] = 'DACHadmins';
$wgRemoveGroups['DACHadmins'][] = 'DACHadmins';

Then go here, and check the box labeled DACHadmins. Then I can fix other things from there. U W N (talk) 02:11, 31 October 2015 (MET) Actually, they changed my job again. Now it is to manage coordination between projects. U W N (talk) 16:11, 31 October 2015 (MET)

I don't know exactly what position title we should be using, but I agree that we should have something for people who work with the project but aren't full administrators here. I think something like "Project Manager" would work. Do you agree?

I'm OK with that, but I think Mtwoll wants to have EWs instead--let's merge them. U W N (talk) 16:31, 4 November 2015 (MET)

Are we gonna set up WikiMonitor soon?

I was the only one who volunteered to host it, so please let me know if I can. Since I don't have the WikiMonitor password on Scratch, if it is me I need it hand-approved. U W N (talk) 04:10, 5 November 2015 (MET)

Since this is still being set up, we should probably wait until everything else is done. However, once it is done, I will send you the files and instructions on how to use it. Just be warned that it requires PHP with the command-line libraries and cURL installed on the computer you're running it on.

Isn't cPanel for WEBSITES?! U W N (talk) 05:25, 6 November 2015 (MET)

Oh you said cURL. OK. U W N (talk) 05:25, 6 November 2015 (MET)

Template questions

Hello, i'm making a to do list for the French Wiki but i have problem with the progress bar. I let you see http://test.scratch-wiki.info/wiki/Fr:Scratch_Wiki_Accueil/autre/to_do_list Can you help me please ? Smrman (talk) 18:57, 18 November 2015 (MET)

The problem is that the template you're trying to reference doesn't exist. Someone needs to create the page Template:Progress bar for you to be able to use it. I'm not great at templates, so you may want to consider asking ErnieParke instead.

Ok thanks for the explainations Smrman (talk) 16:42, 19 November 2015 (MET)
If you want to create a Progrss bar template you could look here: http://wiki.scratch.mit.edu/wiki/User:PrincessPandaLover/On_the_way_to_1,000 Mtwoll (talk) 20:07, 19 November 2015 (MET)
But were did you get that text here?

{{Progress bar|<85>}} {{Progression|85}} {{Composition bar|85|100|red}} {{Percentage bar|85|c=red}} {{Percent-done|done=85|total=100}} {{Progress meter|<85>}} or {{Progress meter|current=<85>}} {{percentile|85}} {{Backlog progress bar|initial=0 |goal=100 |category=|unit= }} {{Stage short|85%}}

If It's from the English scratch-wiki the templates should be there and therefore also here, because user:ErnieParke transferred all templates from there to here... Mtwoll (talk) 20:14, 19 November 2015 (MET)

Stardard & language namespaces

Hi there!

I recently joined this site to help on the Spanish test-wiki. I've been checking all the docs here in order to get started properly, but some doubts remain. Hope these aren't answered elsewhere, I promise I looked thoroughly... :)

  • I saw that language namespaces were changed from 2 to 3 digits last year, so in our case from Es: to Spa:. Old Es: pages are there but they correctly redirect to their Spa: counterparts. But: the Community portal (here) is working the other way around, that is, Spa:Portal de la comunidad redirects to Talk:Es:Portal de la comunidad. This may not be a crucial issue, but I suspect that's related to the next question.
  • As I create namespaced pages (Help or Templates, for example), should they be Spa:Template:Whatever or Template:Spa:Whatever? That's how I create them via link, anyway? (say writing [[Spa:Template:Whatever]] in an existing page)
  • I understand that standard namespaces are usually translated as well, are they? So in our Spanish wiki it would actually be something like Spa:Plantilla:Lo que sea. Do I just create the links like that? Or are these translations done elsewhere for the whole site?

Thanks a lot in advance. Again, I hope I'm not re-asking already answered questions... I'm eager to start editing, but I want to do things in the proper order!!

Creating a new wiki

Hi, i've read some articles about getting started, and i cannot understand how i can create a new wiki (i. e. ro.scratch-wiki.info). From what i've read, i need to create some pages for the Wiki before actually creating a new subdomain. Is this true? LankyBox01 (talk) 18:47, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

Yes, you need to create a sufficient amount of pages and have an active community before getting a full subdomain Wiki. The reason for this is a full subdomain Wiki requires more resources and management effort.

How do i start tough? LankyBox01 (talk) 06:27, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
First, let me or another administrator know what Wiki you want to create, and we'll set up the namespace for you. Then, start editing pages in that namespace.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 15:28, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
Ok, well, can you create a romanian (RO) Wiki? LankyBox01 (talk) 16:30, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
The Romanian Wiki has the necessary groundwork in place. You have a namespace, a main page (Ro:Pagina principală), and are linked on the front page. Now start creating pages under that namespace to build out the Wiki.

Embedding GIFs

Hi Jvvg, I'm having trouble embedding GIFs and images and formatting pages, can you please link a tutorial or something that helps with wiki editing? Thanks :D

PhoenixSF (talk) 17:43, 15 March 2021 (UTC)PhoenixSF

We have a whole set of tutorials on the English Wiki. Basically everything from the tutorials there is also applicable here.
