Minecraft Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Minecraft Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
If you believe you have been wrongfully blocked, please visit an admin's userpage and send them an email using the left sidebar.

The Admin noticeboard is one way through which users can notify administrators of issues needing administrative attention. While users are welcome to directly contact specific administrators (especially if they are seen to be active), posting here can be an easier and quicker way of ensuring that at least one admin will notice an issue and respond to it promptly. Remember to sign (using four tildes: ~~~~) when posting an issue.

Before posting an issue here, please consider the following:

  • This page is for reporting wiki issues. Please post discussions on the talk page.
  • Post only issues that require administrative action, i.e. blocking vandals, protecting pages, restoring deleted pages etc.
  • Do not post deletion requests here. Deletion requests should be made by adding {{delete|reason}} to the top of the target page, which will then automatically mark the page as a candidate for deletion.
  • Do not post issues regarding content disputes. Try making a request for comment instead.
  • Mediation requests between users should only be made once a resolution could not be reached between users.
  • For issues regarding the use of this wiki, please see our help center.
  • For issues with filters preventing edits from being saved: Filters are not able to be disabled for specific people. At best, an admin can perform the edit themselves for you. "New user" filters expire after you make some edits around the wiki (some require you to be logged in).

In case of vandalism, posting about it here is low priority. Revert it first, anyone can do so. If the vandal created a new page, tag it for deletion. Assume good faith and consider leaving a message on that user's talk page to explain the reason. Post here only if the user has made several disruptive edits and/or persists despite a warning. Always avoid a revert war with the vandal; it is far better to wait until an admin has a chance to intervene. If a user must be reported here, please use {{user}}, preferably as the topic subject/headline.

Please post new topics at the bottom of the page by clicking the "add topic" tab above.

Current issues

Script errors?[edit]

I appear to be getting script errors on nearly every page that has a template and/or images. Is this just me? I've checked the Terraria wiki and everything seems to be fine there. - MinecraftPhotos4U (talk) 15:01, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

Told. dand0 (talk) 15:06, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
Seems to have gone away now. - MinecraftPhotos4U (talk) 17:20, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
Wait, no, it came back... MinecraftPhotos4U (talk) 18:36, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
Its fixed. If you see a page that is still affected, simply press "edit" then "save page", a.k.a a null edit. It will refresh the page cache and reload used templates. KnightMiner (talk) 19:25, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

403 Error!!![edit]

When I try connect with in my AWB, it except me 403 error!!! Help! My bot is not work! Dimon4ezzz (talk) 13:39, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

Minecraftthumb.png not updating correctly?[edit]

I just managed to upload a new version of the Mojang roster without Notch, Carl, Jakob, or Tobias as they all left the company, but somehow, its not updating on the file page or the Mojang AB page. BDJP007301 15:31, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

For me it was updated correctly. Laura Fidalgo (Talk / Contribs) 15:34, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
Looks fine to me; probably just your browser cache. -- Orthotopetalk 21:38, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I found out later that the cache was indeed the issue. I just cleared it a few times. BDJP007301 21:49, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Music Discs/video[edit]

Music Discs/video need to be moved to Music Disc/video. It is admin protected, so I cannot move it. KnightMiner (talk) 00:46, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Done. -- Orthotopetalk 01:33, 10 November 2014 (UTC) (talkcontribslogsblock log)[edit]

This user had a long history of vandalizing pages. Now, he returned. Block him for eternity. --Naista2002Talk
16:28, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Vandal since 2012! Laura Fidalgo (Talk / Contribs) 16:40, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
I've told him (or her?) to read some very useful text. There's the quote:
For 3 months. During these 3 months, think about your actions; you're not blocked from visiting the wiki. The list of this wiki's rules is quite basic; for more in-depth explanation, see WP:Policies and guidelines, there are mostly similar rules. Read them both, to learn how to not disrupt not only Minecraft Wiki, but also many other wikis.

Move Slabs to Slab[edit]

To comply with style guide. I cannot move it there since Slab redirects to Slabs. Also please delete this page. LauraFitalk 22:07, 17 November 2014 (UTC)

Update {{Version}}[edit]

PE Alpha 0.10.0 is released. --Naista2002Talk

I was declined an editing topic post[edit]

"Your action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. A brief description of the matched abuse rule for your action is: Extra protection for frequent spam targets" This was my text: (TITLE) Pocket Edition Latest Version on homepage needs to have Amazon instead of Fire-TV (TEXT) The Pocket Edition Latest Version list on the homepage needs to have Amazon's Version (Kindle Fires) instead of Fire-TV's version.

Where exactly you have edited? It might be semi-protected, i.e. protected from anonymous and new (with <10 contributions) users. --Naista2002 (talk|contribs) 17:34, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
Well, I was adding something to the Homepage's Talk section suggestion... and now I cant even create my Profie Page since I'm "new." UGH. Coolcam6578 (talk) 17:37, 23 November 2014 (UTC)Coolcam6578
I checked Talk:Minecraft Wiki, and it was semi-protected.
Now concerning your user page: Can you paste the message you've received when trying to make it? I can't read the abuse log here. --Naista2002 (talk|contribs) 17:47, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
I did; the one in ()s... but here is my editing message for trying to make my Profile Page:
"An automated filter has detected that you are attempting to create a possibly unwanted page. As a new user, your action has been disallowed.
If you believe your edit was constructive, please post a message on the admin noticeboard or notify an admin directly."
Coolcam6578 (talk) 17:58, 23 November 2014 (UTC)Coolcam6578
Maybe an external link was thought of a spam link. Also, please follow the indentation rules. --Naista2002 (talk|contribs) 18:08, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
It's fixed. Since I edited THIS many times, I'm no longer "new." Thanks! Coolcam6578 (talk) 19:54, 23 November 2014 (UTC)Coolcam6578
The Google+ link on your userpage was triggering the filter. There's a special filter for Talk:Minecraft Wiki imposing more restrictions than semi-protection because it tends to get a lot of irrelevant spam. -- Orthotopetalk 22:25, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

User Wiki not makable[edit]

I tried to make a user wiki but it said
"An automated filter has detected that you are attempting to create a possibly unwanted page. As a new user, your action has been disallowed. If you believe your edit was constructive, please post a message on the admin noticeboard or notify an admin directly." --Toestom1 (talk) 01:39, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

You need to make 10 edits before creating pages. –LauraFi · talk 01:41, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
Yes. Or, to clarify, make sure that your account is 4 days old and has 10 edits. Your user page might have an external link. --Naista2002 (talk|contribs) 07:47, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

Clonehero (talkcontribslogsblock log)[edit]

Spamming his/her server on Server and Sugar Canes. -JEC6789 (Talk | Contribs) 01:19, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

Vandalism on things not to do page[edit]

On things not to do page someone put this, don't submerge such things as your personal self or diamond enchanted tools in lava unless they have bane of arthropods, silk touch V, or fragile III. they also put this, don't offer a diamond sword to a Zombie. nobody bothered to delete them. Wanskou (talk) 12:56, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

These things are not called vandalism. --Naista2002 (talk|contribs) 12:58, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
Silk Touch V? Fragile III? –LauraFi · talk 13:01, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
Bomber incoming... --Naista2002 (talk|contribs) 13:06, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

 Target destroyed. --Naista2002 (talk|contribs) 13:07, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

Small request[edit]

Can someone __NOINDEX__ this page? –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 23:36, 30 November 2014 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Why? If it's your user page, log in and do it yourself. If it's not, you shouldn't be editing other users' pages. -- Orthotopetalk 00:09, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

InfiniteMarioMaster (talkcontribslogsblock log)[edit]

Vandalising and continuously adding unsourced information to 1.9. User has been notified of the incident. BDJP007301 19:01, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

The block expired and he/she added false info again. –LauraFi · talk 15:01, 13 December 2014 (UTC)[edit]

Vandalizing the How to help page. Not much to say, just check the recent changes. --ToonLucas22 (talk) 13:50, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

He/she is already blocked, see here. –LauraFi · talk 13:52, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
Full URL links can be done with {{fullurl:Page|URLQuery}}; {{fullurl:Special:RecentChanges|hidebots=0}} gives --Naista2002 (talk|contribs) 10:39, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Archived. Please add link in navbox. t 1234567890Number c

Done. -- Orthotopetalk 20:08, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

About Template:License copyright[edit]

For example, AndroidIcon.png. I don't think there will be anyone asking Google for the use of file. I think this is more like a Fair Use.
By the way, the Android robot logo is CC BY 3.0 file in fact.a20001017Talk 10:49, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

I think that we may add a {{License trademark}} template for trademark images like that. --Naista2002 (talk|contribs) 10:51, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

PvP Tutorials[edit]

I believe that section 6.6.6 (Not recommended Inventories) is not helpful for PvP, as the article repeatedly states that the best armor and weapons available should always be used. This article, which demonstrates several builds with low attack and defense power, should be deleted as the rest of the article (Including the first few sections) tells players what to bring to PvP. 16:17, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

This is to be posted on the Talk:Tutorials/PvP page, not here. I think it should describe how generally PvP works, and some useful tactics, if not more. --Naista2002 (talk|contribs) 16:24, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
