How to edit on the Scratch Wiki

We recommend that before you create your question, you read these tips to editing on the Scratch Wiki.

  • Sign your posts with four tildes (~~~~) after your post.
  • To do various text formatting, follow the following rules, rather than using any other text-editing methods:
    • Make text bold with '''text'''.
    • Make text italics with ''text''.
    • Make text bold and italics with '''''text'''''.
    • Make a link to a page outside of this wiki with [http://www.example.com link text] or {{plain link|1=http://www.example.com|2=link text}} if you don't want the Link icon.png symbol to appear (remember http:// prefix).
    • Make a link to an article on this wiki with [[Page name]] or [[Page name|Link text]].
    • Make a link to a Wikipedia article with [[Wikipedia:Page name]] or [[Wikipedia:Page name|Link text]].
    • Indent a paragraph by putting a colon (:) before it.
    • For more, see the help page on formatting.
  • Put new text under old text.
  • Always remember to be polite and respectful, assume good faith, and be welcoming, while following the Scratch Community Guidelines.
  • When creating a new post, mark it as No Not done by putting {{not done}} at the top. Once the conversation has been resolved, replace it with {{done}} (producing Yes Done).

The server will IP ban you, since those 403s appear to be a warning. IP bans typically last a day, and I don't think there is a fix for this, but I'm logging it anyway. Anyone can edit this message to further explain the IP banning, however. Further information may in future help track down our issue and potentially resolve it.

I mean, we could always just add /Server_Faults as the path and switch this there. It wouldn't be that big of a hassle, you can just copy and paste it. And there are more and more coming anyways, so it's not oing to be too long before it gets very long.

List of deleted pages

No Not done

(Brought up here after discussion here.)

So, there are currently four lists of deleted pages on this wiki:

  • Mathfreak231's, which is the most comprehensive but is no longer updated in his absence
  • Mine, which is a duplicate of Mathfreak's but hopefully more organized
  • Jammum's Deleted Pages, which are more recent than either of the above
  • Jammum's All Deleted Pages, which seems to be more recent and extensive but has the least information (it's only a list of titles)

I suggest (from jakel181's idea) that these become a single page in projectspace, something like "Scratch Wiki:Deleted Pages". This could be a Scratch Wiki Project.

Advantages
  • More organized
  • One place for all
  • Can be updated by anyone
Disadvantages
None I can think of off the top of my head

Thoughts? Shall we do it?

I don't think it goes in the sidebar, it's not that important; however, come to think of it, this is a nice candidate for a Scratch Wiki Project. Thinkest you that this is a suitable mission to embark upon?

Welcome templates

Yes Done

A lot of people have their own "welcome" templates that they post on new users' talk pages. This is a great idea, because new users can get to know new people and, of course, feel welcomed. However, the welcoming effect starts diminishing when things like this happen:

That's a lot of welcomes.PNG

10 different people jumping on the new user is too much - it's not welcoming, it's downright scary! How would you feel if you created an account somewhere and you were confronted with a wall of "welcome"s?

To counteract this, I don't propose forbidding welcomes entirely; what I instead think should be the case is that we have a limit on how many welcome messages can be on a talk page - probably around 4-5 at the most. That does mean it turns into a race as to who can get their message on first, but that can't be helped - if you want to get your message in, ya gotta be active at the right time.

I don't think there's much room for debate on the necessity of the limit, but what can be bargained is the limit itself - how many topics do you think is too many?
Kenny2scratch logo.jpg kenny2scratch  Talk  Contribs  Directory 
07:59, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

I think that a limit of 4-5 is a great idea :) I still remember when I started the messages really confused me. Also, I'd say that if you post a welcome message, it should have a variation of the simple title "Welcome!". I tried to make mine a bit different. I like the "All aboard!" one. Maybe we could say if there are more than eight messages already, really don't put one, but if there are 4-5 try not to put your template, but a personal message is okay.

I see this level of enthusiasm as very exciting. While it may be a little intimidating, I look at it more as a great way to integrate yourself with the community immediately and meeting many of the people who you will be working with side-by-side. Nonetheless, I would love to see more data on this and interview some people on their experiences regarding this to see if it does have a negative impact.
Makethebrainhappy (talk | contribs) 00:35, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
As we are bargaining for this, I was just wondering what we'll be doing now. Should we be limiting welcomes now? Or do we continue welcoming as much as we can :D?

I was just scrolling through the CP, and this caught my eye. Great idea, I definitely think this needs to be considered. I understand that people are just trying to be kind by sending the welcome messages, but it would almost be like a horror film for the person who owns the account. I think 4-5 welcome templates are enough, but I think there needs to be a break between even those. Getting 4-5 welcomes in a couple of seconds is also not the best of ideas.

We should ask new users for their opinion on this right after they get the welcomes.

I think 4-5 is a good limit. I personally liked getting welcomes, but I only got 3 of them.

I'm a fairly new user, and I got 4 welcomes. It seemed fine for me, so I agree that 4-5 sounds like a good limit.

Maybe we can create a welcome template, and a bot automatically adds it for every new user. Any user edit it (just like an article). Maybe there could be in it for all the users that contributed.
VFDan.png VFDan  Talk  Contribs  On Scratch  19:21, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Please fix your signature!
No, the point of each user having their own welcome template is for them to be specific to the user welcoming - a different message for each one. If they just wanted to add their name to a stock welcome they could reply to the {{welcome}} message added by default. However, 10 users posting personalized welcomes is a lot of different welcomes to read - which is why it needs limiting.
Seems like 4-5 is the limit we've agreed on; for the sake of looseness, the limit is now 5 welcome messages at most on any new user's talk page (not including the {{welcome}} message; does not apply to users created before this decision).
@Nambaseking01: Limiting the rate of welcomes is a separate topic that should be proposed separately.

Block Problems

No Not done, as blocks are still unfinished or broken
Today I started to finish up the script for How to Evaluate an Expression, and things got out of hand. When I first completed it, I realized I did some of the block loops wrong, and it like wrapped around some things that I didn't want to wrap around, while I also couldn't get this one if then else block to wrap around something else — it was all a mess. I cleaned some of it up, but I am afraid I'll make it worse and I already spent more than an hour on it. Also, I have to save it each time I want to check if it is correct, since for some reason the blocks won't load up in Show preview mode (it appears in code) but loads when the changes are saved. Can somebody please fix up the script to match the one in post #19 in this forum topic?
TenType (talk | contribs) 04:22, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

The blocks still don't match the one in the post, I tried again on my sandbox and it still does not cut out. Anyone who is an expert at doing this?

Not necessarily, we use the 2.0 version for historical references. So, we should have to images for this. One for 3.0, and one for 2.0.

On Wikipedia, there is an option for new Wikians to complete the Wikipedia Adventure. This teaches them skills and covers all the basics of using Wikipedia.

I hope you're prepared to put in the amount of work involved, because The Wikipedia Adventure is really involved (I've done it once before) and a lot of stuff has to be created for it to work. I like the idea, but I don't know if anyone here has the follow-through to actually focus on a project like this that could take a week or more to make.
If you think you can commit yourself (and furthermore get others to commit themselves) you can make a Scratch Wiki Project of it. Good luck!

Adding on, when I did it, it felt a lot more like a game/activity than a guidebook. It allows the user to actually collaborate, talk to people and create/edit a page all in a sandbox setting. It helped me learn the basics of Wikipedia far more than a guide could (probably because I was really interested in it and getting those shiny badges was nice).

Moving Plural page titles to singular

Yes Done On the wiki, there are many page titles like "Blocks" and "Numbers". This makes it confusing to users and editors, as well as links. "[[Block]]s makes a link to singular that appears plural, but there is no equivalent for singular-appearing plural-leading links.

-unsigned comment by Congyingzhou (talk | contribs)
Many page titles cannot be made into plural form. Having both plural and singular forms is confusing and creates other problems. Singular page titles are also easier to work with, as I said in my first post. Also, remember to not change other users' posts without permission.
Should I put {{move}} on the plural pages?

IWB Interwiki Check

Hello everyone. It's been awhile since IWB has scanned the wikis for interwikis to add, and now is probably a good time to do that!

Below you'll find a list of proposed edits from the bot. It would be helpful if a few people could look at some proposed edits and double check them for errors:

User:InterwikiBot/Proposed_Edits

Several issues have already been discovered:

  • Not properly handling empty interwikis, ex en:, see the ja homepage
  • test -> tw
  • The bot is proposing adding interwikis to other pages when they already have an interwiki for that language
  • Help:Namespaces has a flat out wrong interwiki suggestion

This might take another round or two to remove perviously undiscovered bugs, but with the wikis growing more complex, it's important to get them now. Thank you

Sonic the Hedgehog

Right now the wiki is saturated with Sonic the Hedgehog stuff, specially the AF pages. Lots of example of stuff are Sonic stuff. The entire wiki feels like an indirect Sonic ad. We should change a lot of this examples.

If I'm not mistaken, the Sonic stuff is limited to only AF pages. It's fine to gradually phase AF pages away from Sonic content while making other edits to the pages, but don't go mass editing out Sonic stuff. (Do note that I don't really see a problem with a Sonic theme in AF pages lol)

Suggestion: Mention that the Privacy Policy and Disclaimers are in German

Currently, the links under the 'Legal' category do not are not mentioned that they are in German. I suggest that the footer mentions that the content under the Legal category are in German.

Without mentioning that, some people might be confused that they are in German, and not English. They also cannot be translated into English without it being inaccurate.

The servers are German because they are owned by Martin Wollenweber, who lives in Germany.

Maybe the Privacy Policy and the Disclaimers can be individually labelled that they are in German, or is that still 'unorthodox'? They could have 'in German' put in brackets after them.

Updating Translators page

The Scratch Team is no longer actively maintaining the translators page https://en.scratch-wiki.info/wiki/Translators

I'd like to remove the Scratch Team only badge and allow folks from the translation community to update the page. Ideally there would be just one or two people per language that would keep things up to date for their language.

Would there be a different process for translators to join as a wiki editor? Are there different suggestions for having the translators page managed by the community?

Thanks, --Chris
-unsigned comment by Chrisg (talk | contribs)

Ok! I'll remove the banner at the top of the page for you. As for the translation community updating the page, we can not allow a different application processes for translators joining the wiki, though they are welcome to follow the current application processes and join the wiki that way. Also if they chose not to join they can always leave a post on the Community Portal in the forums with what should be updated and one of our editors will happily make the change. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do.

WikiMonitor is hurting me

Wow, so I just added the {{Done}} and {{-}} templates before the title of a message, and I signed my message under it. The only thing is, I accidentally forgot to add the done thing, so I had to edit my post and put that there. That message was from Wikibot. And then, when I did that, I got another message from WikiMonitor saying that I didn't sign the post meanwhile I'd just added the templates to the title.

Now, maybe this sounds very stupid, but I'm pretty sure I've done this before and WikiMonitor didn't come at me like that. What's going on?

Lancer PFP trend

In the last few days, a PFP trend about Lancer from Deltarune has been on many Scratcher's PFPs. They normally replace the eyes and mouth of their face to Lancer's eyes and mouth. @-BoyMcBoy- was the first popular Scratcher to do it, and he got the face from @MusicManJoe. Is this notable enough to add to the Scratch Trends page?

Scratch Wiki YT Channel

Hi everyone! I wanted to put a little feeler out there to see who was interested in participating/creating content for a possible Scratch Wiki YT Channel. We would publish wiki-like content within YT's video format. We could then link to this content from within the Wiki.

Ahmetlii, please correct me if I'm wrong, but your template still seems to produce external links. VFDan is suggesting a system that would produce internal links. I've re-marked this section as No Not done.
Also, a template-related thing: you put <onlyinclude> tags around the {{/doc}}, but they should have been <noinclude> tags, because you don't want to include the doc in the template. Overall though, nice template! :)

I'd forgotten about this - "project" is a namespace alias for whatever the meta-namespace is. I've renamed project: to projects: to get around this; and for consistency, studio: is now studios: and profile is now users: (the last one because "users" isn't a namespace while "user" is). The scratch: prefix remains unchanged. FYI!

Scratch + the Project to Find the Fundamental Theory of Physics by Stephen Wolfram

Hi everyone! I've been asked to give you a heads up about an excellent program over on the DE Wiki: Scratch Club. I've been a few times (and would love to attend more) and the discussions relate both the Wiki and fascinating technology. The meetings are for international audiences as well with English as a standardized language. Here is a little sneak peak as to what they will be discussing at the next meeting taking place on May 20th, 2020 at *6:30 G.M.T - 8:30 C.E.S.T (Germany)*.

  • Offtopic: https://youtu.be/60P7717-XOQ (Stephen Wolfram: Computing a Theory of Everything) - This month Stephen Wolfram presented a breakthrough in his thoughts concerning the creation of an entirely new model of the world based on Automata Theory. He thereby wishes to better explain the laws concerning space, time, energy and matter in a clearer light than previous models. In this manner he is one step closer to achieving his life goal which he presented in the TED-talk linked above ten years ago. Here is his presentation from 4/14/2020 in which he explains his theories as well as he can and affords all interested listeners an opportunity to share his joy in the solution. If his theory is correct, it may be a breakthrough as great as that of Newton and Einstein. Fascinating! https://youtu.be/rbfFt2uNEyQ (Wolfram Physics Project Launch: 14. April 2020)
  • The topic above isn't *offtopic* at all but a great idea for us! Who will find the Scratch program that best interprets "Rule 30"? Or who will program it? Who will write a Scratch Wiki article for it that is of such quality that it will be in Wiki Wednesday for both the English and German Wikis at the same time? *This must become a theme within the Scratch community* Why? It is the best example for Scratch's motto: "low floor high ceiling." Every student can appreciate "Rule 30" and even program it, but the implications point to a "Theory of Everything."
  • Determine the "Scratch Project of the Week"
  • Suggest Wiki-Wednesday Articles
  • ggf. Post the News! (DE)
  • Go through the latest messages, specifically [11], review author task list [12]


I hope that you find these topics interesting yourself and mark down the time to join the meeting! Please let @MartinWollenweber know if you are interested in joining the group where the discussion will take place.
Makethebrainhappy (talk | contribs) 15:27, 3 May 2020 (UTC)

@Makethebrainhappy: Thank you very much for translating and sharing with the english Scratch Wiki Community! I hope this idea is as interesting to some of you as it is to me. Hope some of you "catch fire" and start their own creative activities. What do you think?

Revamping and Reviving S:CPND

No Not done

Yes, I know there are already two topics about this, but this one has a very specific suggestion that can be implemented relatively quickly if people agree.

As you probably know, there's a section of the CP specifically for topics that are not yet done and haven't been done for a while. Users can access it by going to Scratch Wiki talk:Community Portal/Not Done or S:CPND, or alternatively via the "Things to Do" link under "For Editors" in the sidebar. The unavoidable fact is that these topics hardly ever get looked at. By anyone.

There have already been two topics created about this issue and how to solve it, Not Done doesn't get enough attention and Not Done. Kenny2scratch introduces his topic (the former one) with "So I was browsing through Scratch Wiki talk:Community Portal/Not Done and realized that all of the discussions had been moved there and left to rot simply because they happened to last longer than an archive period." The unfortunate thing is, this is still happening. And not only that, but ironically, it's happening to both of the topics I linked. Ken's is from February of (drumroll, please) 2018. I am not about to propose a "cure-all" solution to this problem, but something that could help. In other words, it definitely won't solve the problem, but it might assist a bit in solving it.

Well, let's get onto the idea already, shall we? I think that when people do hear about Not Done, and go to it (wanting to contribute to a discussion), they may get frightened by the overwhelming length of some of the topics and leave without contributing to any of them. Therefore, here is my suggestion: we put each discussion (not its corresponding header) into an "extended content" box using {{collapse top}} and {{collapse bottom}}. Then under the header, but not in the "extended content" box, we add a short, one to three sentence summary of what the OP is saying (and perhaps even more things, like what has been discussed so far). I've created a mockup with two discussions here.

I think that this way, when folks go to S:CPND, they can easily find a discussion they'd like to contribute to (without being scared away quickly). Then, when they find a discussion they're interested in, they can un-collapse the box and read the replies so that they can give their opinion. They won't be scared away because they didn't see tons of long discussions at the same time, they just saw short suggestions. Then they see one long discussion after they un-collapse the box β€” the one they're interested in.

What do you think?

I have the same opinion with Bigpuppy, also I have a suggestion: We can archive some of the Not Done topics, because they are not discussed actively and some of them outdated.It's still a big problem.
Ahmetlii (talk | contribs) 20:09, 10 May 2020 (UTC)
Hmm, I like the idea but looking at your mockup I'm not sure how well it'd work in practice. I feel like it might be a better idea to let the OP(ost) of each topic be the summary, and rather collapse away all of the subsequent discussion so that it's easier to scroll past. If the OP(ost) itself is really long, then I suppose a manual summary might be in order, but unless the OP(oster) is inactive then it might be a good idea to let them do the summarizing themselves to best capture the essence of the idea. Does that make sense?

Whichever human happens to be making the collapsing edit - there doesn't need to be a boundary, just leave it up to the judgement of whoever is doing the moving :)

Why is the interwiki link for the Test-Scratch Wiki the language code for Twi?

The interwiki code for the Test Wiki is 'tw', and the 'in Other Languages' section of the homepage says 'Twi', again with a link to the Test Scratch Wiki.

On it, there is no Test-Wiki for Twi, which seems to be an African language spoken in Ghana. If there is no Test-Wiki for Twi, why does the Interwiki link to the Test-Wiki use its language code?
Jammum Icon.png Jammum (πŸ’¬ Talk - ✍️ My 1,987 Contribs - 🐱 Scratch) 09:22, 11 May 2020 (UTC)

Actually, I saw it before in Wikipedia's ISO 639-3 language codes list a week ago, and I was going to say that. I think this code designed from Test Scratch Wiki. However, I think that it's not a big problem for now.
Ahmetlii (talk | contribs) 11:27, 11 May 2020 (UTC)
test is not an inter-language code, so it's impossible to link to (say) the Test wiki CP using [[test:Test-Scratch-Wiki talk:Community Portal]] the same way we can for real languages. However, tw: happens to be a real language, whose language code is recognized as an inter-language code, whose language code can nicely stand for "test wiki", and whose language name can be repurposed to mean test wiki. If we ever do have a wiki in the actual Twi language, then things will have to change; but for now, we use "Twi" as a means of treating "test" as an inter-language link rather than inter-wiki.

What are...

...common.js pages for?
Dilek's Wiki Signature Picture.pngDilek10-Talk-Contribs-Profile Page 08:18, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

Your common.js file is a JavaScript file that will run on all pages, no matter what skin you're using - but only for you. It's basically a Wiki-specific alternative to userscripts that MediaWiki supports natively.
Your common.css file is a CSS file that likewise applies to all pages you visit on all skins, only for you.
Changing "common" to the name of a skin, e.g. "scratchwikiskin2" will make it only apply to all pages when you are viewing them in that skin.
There are also MediaWiki:Common.js and MediaWiki:Common.css files (as well as their skin-specific equivalents) that run on all pages for all users. These can only be edited by admins.

Suggestion: Add a "sandbox" option in the user pull-down on the header

My suggestion is above — that's pretty much it. When you click on your username, you would see your username, "Talk," "Preferences," "Watchlist," "Contributions," "Log out," and "Sandbox" thrown somewhere in there. "Sandbox" would direct you to your personal sandbox, not the public sandbox. If the user hasn't created their sandbox, it would direct them to the page to create it.

Ahmetlii (talk | contribs) 18:14, 16 May 2020 (UTC)
Wikipedia has this, but this is actually harder to implement than you might think - the skin does not hardcode the user dropdown links, they are generated by MediaWiki itself. Adding the sandbox link would require a hook somewhere in LocalSettings.php and that might mess up some rhythms. There could be a link in the For Editors box, though! Special:MyPage/Sandbox is a handy link. What say y'all?

Studio Articles

Hi! I was wondering if people can write articles on studios on the Scratch Wiki. The guidelines say if you are not allowed to advertise users or user-generated content. Does this apply to studios? I don't think it does because a Wikian wrote an article about the Scratch Design Studio. It merely explains what the SDC (Scratch Design Studio) is. So my question is can you write an article about a certain studio? Without advertising it of course, but merely explaining what the studio is and its purpose. I don't think I'll be writing any studio articles anytime soon but an answer would be much appreciated. If you would like to answer me on my talk page the link is here

Articles about user-generated content (whether projects, studios, or anything else) are not allowed. The Scratch Design Studio is not user-generated content as it was created by the Scratch Team.
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk | contribs 21:18, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
That said, there are some exceptions.
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk | contribs 21:20, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
What about the Scratch Welcoming Committee? Or is that an exception?
J_Coder26 (talk | contribs) 21:25, 17 May 2020 (UTC)J_Coder26
The Scratch Welcoming Committee is also an official Scratch Team studio, so it is not user-generated content. :)
Bigpuppy Logo.png bigpuppy talk | contribs 21:31, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
Really? I didn't know that. I thought it was user generated but had a few ST members as managers. I don't really pay much attention to studios.

Please help me

Hello I am mastercoder4life. I am a new wikian and didn't understand the welcoming pages too well. Could someone please tell me how to insert a link?
Mastercoder4life (talk | contribs) 23:37, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

Hello, Mastercoder4life! Welcome to the Scratch Wiki! :)
On the wiki we have two types of links — internal links and external links. You use internal links when you're linking to a page on the Scratch Wiki, Scratch, or Wikipedia. You use external links to link to any other sites.
To make an internal link, you use this syntax: [[NAME OF PAGE|LINK TEXT, IF APPLICABLE]] For example, if you wanted to link to the page about the Scratch Team, you'd do this: [[Scratch Team]] That would make this: Scratch Team Or you could do this: [[Scratch Team|ST]] That would make this: ST
You make an external link with this syntax: [URL LINKTEXT] For example, if you wanted to link to example.com, you could do this: [https://example.com/ Example] And that would make this: Example
For more information, visit Help:Links.
Again, welcome to the Scratch Wiki! We're happy to have you here! :)

Privacy policy in English?

The "privacy policy" link at the bottom of the page is in German. Is there one in English?
Donotforgetmycode (talk | contribs) 08:13, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

No, it's discussed in the past, and admins don't want to change it because of the laws and problems about the translation. See also to here.

Oh, OK. I still don't understand why it's dangerous to translate it.
Donotforgetmycode (talk | contribs) 17:25, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
You don't speak a foreign language then; some things are very tough to translate. One single error in translation could basically destroy this site.

macOS drops support for Scratch 1.4 on versions 10.14 and 10.15

Several replies in this forum topic say that macOS 10.14 and 10.15 drop support for 32-bit apps, including Scratch 1.4 and obviously other 1.x versions. The end of support for 32 bit apps on 10.15 is mentioned on Apple Inc's website here.

Where in this wiki should that information be put?

Of course, the Scratch 1.x pages.

New Scratch Wiki Logo?

Hi! I think that because the main page of the Scratch Wiki and the scratchblocks have the new 3.0 style, why not the logo? I think that the Scratch Wiki logo needs an update. It has the old 2.0 style, and 2.0 is long gone. Please tell me your thoughts on this!
Garnetluvcookie (talk | contribs) 00:14, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

...? The Wiki logo currently uses the 3.0 version of the Scratch logo for the word "Scratch". Keep in mind that the Scratch Website had parts in 3.0 styling long before 3.0 came out.

Oh, never mind, I see the difference now. Still, there's no need for a new logo - this one works perfectly well and isn't completely outdated (like the old favicon was).

Are "Public Sandboxes" Allowed?

Hey, basically, can we have a userpage that everyone can edit? In this case, can we make a user sandbox a public sandbox?
Dilek's Wiki Signature Picture.pngDilek10-Talk-Contribs-Profile Page 16:34, 25 May 2020 (UTC)

New Wikians can't edit others' userpages by default; to remove this restriction on one of your userpages, add {{open userpage}}. As for whether what you're talking about is allowed, I don't see any problem with it. However, if someone else sees one, please point it out. :)

Problems about mobile devices

Yes Probably done

When I'm making a edit in the Wiki, I sometimes see that my edits has a lot of paragraph error. I didn't do them on keyboard, but I saw an added space or a paragraph. For example, when I write "some times", it can seen as "evetimesry". I have no idea about why this problem is occurring, but it's a big problem when I write.

This is likely a problem on your end. Try updating your system. You can also try switching the editor to plain-text mode using the colorful button on the top of the textbox.

Scratch Archive

The old Version of the Forum is archived here: https://scratcharchive.asun.co/forums/ (as far as I know it changed url several times, but I'm not sure). Does anybody know who owns and runs this website (I think it's one of us fellow Scratch-wiki-authores?). Could it be a good idea to archive it aditional on the Scratch-Wikis server in case the private persons who runs the archive discontionues it one day? There are so many historical references from the Scratch Wiki to the old forum that this could be usefull.

Although they are no longer active on Scratch (as said on their profile, although they replied to a comment on their profile 28 days ago), comp09 likely owns it.
(I found that out via the 404 page of the archived 1.x Scratch Forums, which links to a website that I eventually found out had a link to it on their Scratch profile).
Jammum Icon.png Jammum (πŸ’¬ Talk - ✍️ My 1,987 Contribs - 🐱 Scratch) 07:27, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
Also http://asun.co links directly to https://andrewsun.com, which comp09 said on their profile is their site. Thus, it appears that comp09 is the owner of the forum archives.
VFDan.png VFDan  Talk  Contribs  On Scratch  00:24, 1 June 2020 (UTC)
scratcharchive.asun.co has been stable since 3 years. To myself, the best option is not archive again for now.

It is owned by blob8108 to my knowledge. Its URL used to be http://scratchforums.blob8108.net/forums/ before and a post by jvvg stats that it is owned by him. I also think I saw him saying that it was owned by him on GitHub once. It might be a good idea to contact him.
