Sorry, that doesn’t help - what specific problem are you having?

The WHole wiki is messed up, meaning looks werid and not right. --Blueparrot18 (talk) 16:38, 24 December 2017 (CET)

How is it messed up? Are there some broken tables? Or is some wiki markup showing? Or is a template acting weird? Or is it some other problem?
└─post by kenny2scratch (talk|contribs) 12:16, 26 December 2017 (CET)

same problem with me too, it is not explainable like a bug User:Purvitekriwal/sig 12:14, 4 December 2021 (IST)

Editing. . .

Hi, I can't edit any pages, because when I make edits, it says, (Save (use preview first)), and when I press preview, it leads to a page which is a hashtag only. I can't work on my Arabic wiki anymore because of this. What should I do? Tarekzaki (talk) 15:37, 27 September 2018 (CEST)

It leads to a hashtag only page first?? Ah well, never mind about force previewing then.
I do want to mention that I forced previewing because I saw you made many small edits. You could have avoided those edits if you had used "show preview" instead. I'll remove the force preview, but can you please make only one big edit instead of many small edits? Thanks.
P.S. it worked for me on this page, perhaps it's an Arabic weirdness.
└─post by kenny2scratch (talk|contribs) 16:04, 27 September 2018 (CEST)
Thank you for removing the force preview for me. It really helps when I can help Scratch. By the way, yeah, I think it's the strangeness of the Arabic text. It works for me on this page too.

Tarekzaki (talk) 18:41, 27 September 2018 (CEST)

Oh no, the force-previewing is back. I can't edit, because, again it leads to a hashtag symbol page. And also, the reason I kept on making little edits was because I already knew about what happened when I pressed, "preview." Same thing happens when I press, "view changes."Tarekzaki (talk) 18:41, 27 September 2018 (CEST)
Ah well, I tried a different solution but to no avail. I've gotten rid of force previewing for good.
The point of previewing, by the way, is that you can make a change, preview it, then make another change and preview it, then save it. So you can combine what would be many edits into one edit.

It's no problem! I haven't been incredibly active here myself (though I mainly ride on others' activity). As long as you can check in every once in a while you should be good :)

Hi Kenny2scratch, sorry for the confusion, I should have made it clearer. Latin is different to most languages and never has capitals except with names and, like on Wikipedia, the first word of article headings. That's why the page is 'Pagina prima' and not 'Pagina Prima' - hope that makes sense, it's not just me being weird (well, mostly not). NightSpeakers (talk) 13:50, 25 October 2018 (CEST)

Latin capitalization is identical to English capitalization in most respects. Title case applies to Latin as much as it does to English. If you had finished reading the recent changes before contacting me, though, you would have noticed that I moved it back to the sentence case version (the page is currently at Pagina prima rather than Pagina Prima). I only moved it to title case because that's the English wiki convention - but since this will be a separate wiki, I thought why shouldn't it have a different caps scheme? Especially since sentence case is far better than title case for linking and searching.
Essentially, I moved it back then forth again because of a conceptual mistake I made - sorry for the confusion.
└─post by kenny2scratch (talk|contribs) 13:58, 25 October 2018 (CEST)
I was just scrolling through the history and found that you had moved it. I had seen that you had moved it back too :D - that's why I contacted you just to explain why I had put it like I had the first time. NightSpeakers (talk) 14:04, 25 October 2018 (CEST)


Hello there, sorry to bother you again but is there certain conditions for when a wiki (in this case the Latin Wiki) can be added to the sidebar under 'Scratch Wikis'? Thank you! NightSpeakers (talk) 14:46, 25 October 2018 (CEST)

The condition is that you remind me about it :P
To be serious, the only reason it wasn't in the sidebar is because I forgot to add it - there's usually always one thing I miss when adding a new language.

I know I 'messed up the background' there a program/way on Scratch that you can remove the background from a photo like that? NightSpeakers 08:37, 1 November 2018 (CET)

Translating blocks

└─post by Ahmetlii (talk|contribs) 10:20, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

The translations that work are not defined by me. I recommend that you use this page to translate scratchblocks (unlike Google Translate, that kind of translation is actually perfectly accurate!). I have fixed that particular instance myself using that page.

multiple links/pages with similar content found in English Test Wiki

I am trying to translate pages from English to Hindi. I want to know why are there two different pages/links for the same topic. And Which one should I translate/create as a new page? TutMaker (talk) 11:52, 24 February 2020 (UTC)TutMaker

Eng:Motion Blocks is the more detailed/main page about motion blocks; Eng:Table of Contents/Motion Blocks is part of the Table of Contents which is meant to give quick access to the content available on the wiki. Both need to be translated - they are different things.
By the way, you sign your name with just four tildas (~~~~) rather than that plus your name.

About transform the Turkish Wiki as a Real Wiki

I think Turkish Wiki has a lot of articles, templates and images. To me -although I'm not very sure-, Turkish Wiki provides all of the conditions for be a Real Wiki.So, I suggest to transform Turkish Wiki to subdomain. Note: Please change Turkish Wiki link as "Ana Sayfa" because I need a redirect for "Ana Sayfa".

It's still unsolved because it's not changed in other wikis. This is a big problem during InterWikiBot's inactivity. (IWB won't work, it's deprecated. I think I can do a new bot if I have a lot of time.) FYI.

i would also like to edit english scratch wiki. and for about hindi scratch wiki that i am not that active and many pages i searched for are missing and show that we have to create a page and also in a page of english in hindi scratch wiki everything is in araic. sorry, i cannot understand arabic so i cannot make the same page in hindi but i want to create it. please can you help me link here- thank you. User:Purvitekriwal/sig 8:39, 20 December 2021 (IST)

A rogue Arabic editor modified the original page instead of translating in the Ara: namespace. I've reverted the page back to normal. You should be able to use the normal process to translate the page now.
If you want to edit the actual English Scratch Wiki, you need to follow their account request process.
└─post by kenny2scratch (talk|contribs) 04:39, 20 December 2021 (UTC)

rogue?? what does that mean?Purvitekriwal (talk) 05:34, 6 January 2022 (UTC)

They meant that the user who has edited the page doesn't know much about the wiki, so they've made a mistake and added Arabic text in another namespace.
└─post by Ahmetlii (talk|contribs) 05:45, 6 January 2022 (UTC)


In my sandbox after editing I can see the page having a green padlock at top right corner why is the so? When I click it I am redirected to a page telling about protested pages. Purvitekriwal (talk) 05:35, 6 January 2022 (UTC)

You seem to have the upload process down, but the logo doesn't look great, if I'm being honest. Go ahead and keep revising it. You pretty much have full creative license as long as you use the Wiki globe with the Scratch cat and wordmark.

Should we update test articles to Scratch 3.0?

I was trying to do some translations, and found that the Test wiki articles were containing 2.0 content, hence the real wiki. Should I get content from the real English pages? Or, should I proceed with outdated content? Sjkim04 (UTC) 03:10, 20 April 2022 (UTC)

Using the real wiki content is of course better. Please use real wiki content if the page is outdated. The Eng: test wiki is no more than a placeholder.
└─post by Ahmetlii (talk|contribs) 03:27, 20 April 2022 (UTC)
Ugh, years ago I was working on a bot to update all the Eng: pages. I never finished it. For now, use the actual English wiki content where you can. Beware that some pages may have been moved or deleted since they were copied on Test.
