not sure what you mean - maybe you need to click the blue circle on the transform tool to change between and object and world...?

Are you saying that you selected the face on both sides and then scaled them together but one side scaled horizontally while the other side scaled vertically (at the same time)?

If your asking how to keep faces together, it's an item under your "Edit Mesh" menu set. Just click it and from then on, your faces will remain together when you extrude.

You are extruding in World and this will change the way each face deal with it. if you click the little blue circle on the outside of the big blue circle, this will change you from local to world. Also be aware of the history of the original extrusion.
