O.k I'm having trouble comprehending this. A major scale goes whole whole half whole whole whole half. Any way shouldn't an e major scale go like this?

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|0-2-4-5-7-9-11-12----------------------------------------------------|


But I see the people on this site putting it like.....

E--------------------------------------------0--------------------------|
B-----------------------------------0--2--4-----------------------------|
G------------------------------1--2-------------------------------------|
D---------------------1--2--4-------------------------2--2--------------|
A------------0--2--4--------------------------------2------2------------|
E---0--2--4------------------------------------0--4----------4--0-------|

I'm like WTF! Help me to please understand this.

There's at least two ways to play any scale, and which way you choose is up to you.

The 5th fret on the low E string is an A. It's the same note as the A string on your guitar. The scale you wrote works its way up the neck. The other scale works its way down the strings. You'll find that by incorporating both techniques you can increase the range of your solos and still stay in key.

Understand?

they correspond to all the notes that are in that E Major scale but across each string down the fretboard instead of just one string

Same notes. You need to understand that scales are note patterns, not fretboard patterns.
