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.

Need to update Mentioned Features[edit | edit source]

The page Mentioned features, includes under "Resource Packs" an unnecessary section about 3D Models, which began to be implemented in 1.8.0. I believe that removing the section will clean up the page and provide accurate information. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 2:23, 28 June 2015 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

That section is not about the models being added, it is about some new features for the models which are planned for the future (such as better item models and animated models for entities). As per MCW:FUTURE, those features are not allowed to be stated on the resource pack or models article until they are actually released. In summary, please actually read the section before declaring it as duplicate information and asking to remove it. KnightMiner · (t) 03:56, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

I need help[edit | edit source]

I need help for updating templates on Hungarian Minecraft Wiki, because I can't understand for them. Martin200005 (talk) 11:23, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

I would suggest you post on the community portal, as this issue does not require administrative attention (and you will likely find see a few more users willing to help there). Also, make sure to mention some specific templates you need to update, as that will help users point you to the part of the template to edit.

Slime is not a mineral, as the mineral blocks are only blocks which come from an ore. Plus, you should really discuss this on the article's talk page, it does not need administrative attention, any user can help with that. KnightMiner · (t) 00:48, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

MarioProtIV (talkcontribslogsblock log)[edit | edit source]

MarioProtIV has been consistently reporting me for maliciously editing and I stop. When I step, however, he goes ahead and copies my work and takes credit for it. He has been suggested my being banned for adding useful information and then he puts the same information and took credit for it. I am requesting his short term ban. 🎅🏻TyEvSkyo 泰勒 16:34, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

You were undoing edits by mods such as Illidicia, plus you moved all the Pocket Edition version history pages to an "Alpha" page without discussing on the talk page. Also, how am I "copying your work and taking credit for it"? --MarioProtIV (talk) 16:56, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
When he tried moving the page into separate sections. Where has any of the PE devs confirm that Beta is being released after redstone? I am doing what's right for the wiki, and your just messing it up, leaving things that I and admins have to clean up (such as moving pages back to their original spot) --MarioProtIV (talk) 17:03, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
Actually this has been confirmed 4 or 5 times but due to time passing I can not recover the information🎅🏻TyEvSkyo 泰勒 19:48, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
Pocket edition does not need to necessarily be in beta to have an alpha development cycle.🎅🏻TyEvSkyo 泰勒 19:48, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
Another example. He tried adding 2 links to 2 separate stages in the Minecraft development, but Illidicia undid it. Only pages with version pages should have their link in the template, not versions that are in table form. --MarioProtIV (talk) 17:09, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
Illicidia undid because of problems it caused. It appeared twice I fixed this.🎅🏻TyEvSkyo 泰勒 19:48, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
You taking credit for my work took place on Template:Minecraft
You replaced the nether reactor with beetroot even after you consistently were changing it to the NR instead of beetroot.
Also in minor features of the overall 'fitting' of the template 🎅🏻TyEvSkyo 泰勒 19:48, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
There are no "moderators" here, and generally, everybody is equal in editing and discussions. — Agent NickTheRed37 (talk) 06:29, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
@Tyevskyo and MarioProtIV: The major problem here is not the specific edits, it is the fact that both of you have been making some rather controversial changes without any attempt as discussion, reverting constructive edits without any clear reason, and edit warring.
If you are making a major or possibly controversial change (such as moving a high traffic article, a large removal of content, a split, or a merge), get consensus on the talk page first. If you have no idea whether the article is high traffic, just do what I do and start the topic anyways before taking action.
If an edit is constructive or from a generally constructive editor, don't revert it without an good reason stated in the edit summary.
If you have made a change that has been reverted with a good reason, or it has been reverted multiple times, go to the talk page and discuss it. A one day discussion where you have stated your point is not a discussion, and remaking your edit with a minor change does not solve the problem. Also, while the discussion has not come to an agreement, avoid editing the page in question. Reading WP:3RR is also a good idea (which while I don't think it directly applies here, it is a good guideline to follow on all wikis anyways).
@Tyevskyo: One last thing, if you do not have a source for information on an article (other than current gameplay), the information should not be added. Even if the source existed and you just cannot find it. KnightMiner · (t) 21:54, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

Third opinion[edit | edit source]

Even though I'm not an admin, I feel like I need to be brought in for a third opinion. Tyevskyo, MarioProtIV and Wolffillms have been in a slow edit war on multiple pages including the main minecraft template, Template:Pocket Edition versions and Pocket Edition Alpha 0.12.0. The latter page is already protected due to the edit warring going on between the latter two. Tyev and Mario have been edit warring for the past four days, with almost no attempt to resolve the disputes on the respective talk pages. A resolution was attempted here (which only lasted for five minutes), but since then, Tyevskyo has resumed the edit war. -BDJP (t|c) 17:18, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

Honestly, I think Tyevskyo should be blocked for at least a month, because of the edit warring that he's started. Plus, from previous experience like a year ago with the 0.9.0 speculation, I am not quite sure he's learned his lesson since then (my opinion). I'm just trying to do what's best for the wiki, but there are people out there who seem to want to just cause trouble on here. --MarioProtIV (talk) 17:47, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
I did not resume the war I cleaned up the page after the fact.
The 0.9 speculation was posted because using logical reasoning you can determine that blocks and item from respected biomes would be added (this was settled) 🎅🏻TyEvSkyo 泰勒 19:48, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
I did not start the edit warring as you gave no reason as for what I did is wrong while I backed what I did up with undeniable fact.🎅🏻TyEvSkyo 泰勒 19:48, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
In addition to what KnightMiner said above, it doesn't matter who started an edit war; being involved at all can be considered disruptive editing. If you're planning to make significant changes to an article, discuss it on the talk page first. If someone reverts a change you made, take it to the talk page instead of repeating the edits. This often means leaving the article on a version you don't like; it's not the end of the world, so live with it.
I'm not going to block anyone simply as punishment for past behavior, but this whole discussion should be taken as a warning to avoid edit-warring. We may not have an official rule on disruptive editing, but that doesn't mean you can't be blocked for it. -- Orthotopetalk 04:32, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
Anyone who is aware of the problem should be free to participate in these discussions, regardless of their flags. — Agent NickTheRed37 (talk) 06:29, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

Possible Misunderstanding[edit | edit source]

it is possible that MarioProtIV is not reading edit descriptions and therefor is just doing what is right in his opinion 🎅🏻TyEvSkyo 泰勒 19:58, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

I do read the edit descriptions, and I'm doing whats right for the wiki, not my own self. You really seem to be misunderstanding the entire point of this conversation.. --MarioProtIV (talk) 20:11, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
You know how you brought up the 0.9 speculation. This was almost exactly my response to that. 🎅🏻TyEvSkyo 泰勒 00:02, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
By what is right it his opinion, I meant your doing what you THINK is right for the wiki and not what you KNOW is right for the wiki 🎅🏻TyEvSkyo 泰勒 00:02, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
I started the conversation of a reportation, making not me but you the misunderstander(Illicidia is NOT an admin)🎅🏻TyEvSkyo 泰勒 00:02, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
Ok for one; about the 0.9 speculation, in December 2013 you were constantly adding villagers and villages SPECIFICALLY when Tommasso stated it was a house he was building, which really annoyed some admins. And plus, I am doing what I know is right for the wiki. --MarioProtIV (talk) 00:09, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

Mod pages?[edit | edit source]

Can I and anybody else make pages about particular mods used on the PC. For example, Orespawn or Lucky Block. PSCAN999 (talk) 17:49, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

as MCW:NOTABILITY > Community > 3. Is the only rule about mods and is just sais where mod articles must be located
"3. Articles about mods should be included as subarticles of Mods.
1. Articles about custom server modifications/topics should be subarticles of their main article.
2. Articles containing information about client mods are only allowed when the client mod cannot contribute to cheating or griefing in multiplayer."
You and others are allowed to make pages about mods as long as you follow those rules. Also I recommend you follow the unofficial style guides/templates

Editing/behavioral restrictions on Pocket Edition Alpha 0.12.0[edit | edit source]

All admins should be aware that due to the prolonged edit warring on Pocket Edition Alpha 0.12.0, a set of editing/behavioral restrictions have been enacted:

  • Reverting is restricted to a single revert of a given edit per editor, with the exception of reverting obvious vandalism or spam.
  • Any editor that violates the above, or that appears to be baiting another editor into violating the above, will be blocked with the length of the block left to the blocking admin's discretion, but for no less than an hour, and with subsequent blocks escalating in length up to and including forever.
  • Any new editor who edits this article with an apparent level of knowledge of the dispute(s) that is inappropriate for a truly new, good-faith editor, may be immediately indefinitely blocked.
  • If, in spite of the above restrictions, it again becomes necessary to full-protect this article, it will be full-protected until Pocket Edition Alpha 0.12.0 is released, or other circumstances render the protection unnecessary.
  • The above restrictions are extended to all edits performed by MarioProtIV, Tyevskyo, and Wolffillms, to any page on the wiki.
  • All of the above should be broadly interpreted by any admin taking action on them, with a specific mind toward anyone who appears to be gaming these restrictions: an editor who violates the spirit of these restrictions while technically keeping to the letter is still violating the restrictions and will still be blocked, the same goes for any group of editors that appears to be working together to violate the spirit without any individual editor being in violation.

Editors violating these restrictions may be blocked immediately and without warning, though if any editor other than MarioProtIV, Tyevskyo, and Wolffillms is blocked, an explanation should be left on their talk page; the three named editors have already been notified of these restrictions. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 05:15, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

I fail to see why Illidicia is exempt to this, as she is also very involved in the edit warring on this page. see the history Wolffillms (talk) 17:38, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
Illidicia is subject to the editing restrictions on Pocket Edition Alpha 0.12.0, the same as every other editor. They were not named specifically here, and thus are not currently subject to these restrictions across the entire wiki, because none of the otherwise-uninvolved commenters in the above discussion named them as a problematic editor, which matches my own observations of their behavior. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 18:05, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
if you look at the history you can see Illidicia is quite involved with the edit warring along with others that where edit warring. Wolffillms (talk) 18:57, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
You are the only person so far who has raised concerns about their conduct. I have been following the page myself, and as I said before, none of the edits I've seen them make there have looked problematic. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 19:56, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
Dinoguy1000, can you explain the applied sanctions (especially the third point)? Also I think the third point is too cruel. Better make the user learn its mistakes and reform, before killing them off completely. — Agent NickTheRed37 (talk) 16:50, 30 August 2015 (UTC) with further edits

Completely false. If you check my contribs you can see that I've given out detail regarding Wolffillms edits. -BDJP (t|c) 21:54, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
that contradicts to your recent edits here Wolffillms (talk) 21:58, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
Even though I'm not involved in this current conflict, I feel like I should state this: @Wolfillms, anyone on this wiki, especially admins and R.F.S members have a reason for deleting/removing content, regardless of explanation or not. --MarioProtIV (talk) 22:04, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
@|MarioProtIV I can't find anywhere that it sias anyone is above the rules (with the exception of the Administrators and Beurocrats Wolffillms (talk) 22:11, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
not sure if this is breaking a rule or not but he is also using foul language here Wolffillms (talk) 22:07, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
I thought it was clear, but it apparently wasn't, so let me attempt to make it so here: the revert restriction explicitly applies only to reverting the same edit multiple times, not performing several reverts where each revert is of a different edit. That being said, this is not a license to start reverting slews of edits left and right, especially multiple edits by the same user.
Also: anyone who sees Wolffillms or one of the other editors with restrictions perform an edit that they thinks violates those restrictions, please point the edit out here, with a brief explanation of the problem. It does no good to make accusations back and forth in edit summaries or on random talk pages, and the admins don't need backseat mods.
Admins and bureaucrats absolutely are not above the rules; they must abide by them to exactly the same extent as any other editor, and indeed, in any editorial context, the edits and comments of admins and bureaucrats should be given the same weight as would those of any other editor. And while there is no rule dictating that edit summaries must be used, everyone should consider them to be strongly encouraged, especially for potentially controversial reverts (i.e. any revert that isn't of obvious vandalism or the like).
Now, on to the specific accusations: I don't think Wolffillms actually violated the revert restriction on Minecraft: Story Mode, but you're definitely toeing the line, please take more care in the future. Try to talk things out instead of resorting immediately to reverts. And if it comes down to it, avoid situations that would put you in contact with editors you know you're likely to have problems with; in such cases you can instead suggest your changes on the talk page, or simply let them be for a day or two; there is no deadline, and the wiki will not fall apart for not documenting some fact or having some statement corrected or whatever for a couple of days (and it's entirely possible that someone else will think to make the edit in the interim as well).
I'm going to reiterate, this time talking specifically to BDJP: please use edit summaries when you edit, especially when you revert, and if your edit is reverted by someone else, try talking it out with them first unless their edit was obvious vandalism or the like. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 10:15, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

in Template:Reflist, using column-width rather than column-count[edit | edit source]

Moving the discussion forward from Template_talk:Reflist#mobile view, I would suggest here that {{Reflist}} be changed to use column-width rather than column-count as it currently does, and specifically with an optional parameter to set the width that defaults to 30em. The discussion has moved to this page, because Reflist requires administrator privileges to edit.

It would increase readability on mobile devices and smaller screens in general, where forcing two columns causes long links to needlessly break into many lines. Ideally on those smaller screens, Reflist would show a single, more readable column.

As Orthotope pointed out on that discussion, Wikipedia had transitioned to column-width some time ago. Their discussion process, if parties are interested, can be found here and their column-width test cases can be found here.

Knightminer has offered a sample of how this could look, at his sandbox here.

(edit conflict) It's a cached version of the page, it's not actually broken. Only way to fix it is to wait, or force the cache to update by purging any page which shows the error. MajrTalk

Can you quote the part of the policy you are referring to? I see nothing in Minecraft_Wiki:Privacy_policy that implies that you can't reveal your own name. I could be ignorant of such a thing though. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 15:39, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
The privacy policy only pertains to information on visitors and editors collected and used by Curse; it says nothing about personal information revealed by someone, whether about themselves or others. Personally identifiable and sensitive private information that's revealed on the wiki will probably be hidden by administrators (as a side note, if someone comes across such information on-wiki and feels it should be deleted, please notify an admin via email), but someone revealing their own last name is probably not going to fall in that category. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 15:49, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

An automated filter has detected that you are adding a video. Please be sure you have read our Video policy and the video you are adding complies with it. If it doesn't, it will be removed and your editing privileges may be suspended. 2. An automated filter has detected that you are attempting to create a possibly unwanted page.

You are creating a new page before being autoconfirmed, meaning the filters will automatically block links.

Error Pages[edit | edit source]

I try to make pages, but it always says I am disallowed! Only not with the Console Edition removed features page I created, that was fine. I don't like it! I can't make anyting! -|Pika Party|- 15:55, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

That means you have certain text in your page which is disallowed for anonymous users to use in new pages. The best solution is to become autoconfirmed, which requires first registering an account. The make sure the pages fit the notability guidelines and are not already covered somewhere else. KnightMiner · (t) 00:38, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

CEU[edit | edit source]

I tried creating this but I'm disallowed:

Guess I make no sense, then. -|Pika Party|- 00:15, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

If page creation had been allowed, it would have been deleted anyways, as there is currently no consensus to split Console Edition version history (due to certain issues), and without splitting it, a navbox is useless as the point of a navbox is to navigate between pages. Thus, the filter did its job: prevented creation of an unwanted page. KnightMiner · (t) 00:35, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
Hmm. Okay then. -|Pika Party|- 01:34, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
Why not this?:
It still won't let me... -|Pika Party|- 17:12, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
I am not sure exactly what the filter is blocking, but that still would end up being deleted. A navbox is used to navigate between different pages, and almost all those links are the same article, which leaves it useless. We do not need a navbox for the console edition versions unless the version history article gets split. KnightMiner · (t) 17:37, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
Well, I guess I cant do anything about it, as if I try making pages of the console edition update, I'll just get blocked. -|Pika Party|- 17:52, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
How about this?
STILL no. -|Pika Party|- 23:27, 22 September 2015 (UTC)
You seem to be missing my point. We do not need a navbox for the Console Edition versions. Changing the design is not going to make it needed. The only reason we would need it is if the Console Edition pages split, which is not and should not happen unless both the issues are resolved and there is consensus to split (see here). If you want to have links to individual console versions, use the table of contents on the top of the article. KnightMiner · (t) 03:32, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
Changing the design? What do you mean by Changing the design?! I didn't change any design! -|Pika Party|- 18:00, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
Even if all you did was change the links, the point, "The only reason we would need it is if the Console Edition pages split," is the same. A navbox for just one page is just a table of contents, and a table of contents is already on the page. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 18:58, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, but oddly no one want's console edition version pages for SOME REASON. -|Pika Party|- 20:02, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
"Some reason" -- in the earlier discussion where you brought this up, they linked you to this talk page discussion, which was itself a rehash of this community portal discussion from before PE was split. The idea was that nobody could come up with a good way of naming the articles, because of the multiple consoles and multiple names per version.
PS, off-topic, why not just register yourself for a wiki account named PikaParty and use that? No big deal, just curious. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 20:48, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, this could have been better if it started when TU1 came out. What about format like: Xbox 360 TU1, for a separate page, Xbox One CU1 for a separate page, and PS 1.00 for a separate page? would that be too much pages?
Focused On: PS, off-topic. Heh, dunno. -|Pika Party|- 12:59, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

Nether Reactor Core can no longer be crafted.[edit | edit source]

Minecraft Wiki/Gamepedia/Curse clone[edit | edit source]

I just searched for Paul Spooner (using the search engine of my choice) because his wiki article is still a stub, and ended up finding the English and German wiki articles as well as the same article on this website. I found out that it's a complete clone of Curse (link to clone) and all Gamepedia wikis. So - I want to make sure you (The wiki members/the wiki admins/Curse) know about this, it feels a bit strange to see your own contributions on a page you have not contributed to.
For sure I know that this wiki uses the CC BY-NC-SA license, but it could probably be a problem because logging in on the clone website may cause that your e-mail (and login) information gets stolen. (I'm not sure though, but there's always this possibility since the clone may be on a third-party server.) | violine1101(Talk) 19:56, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

From the looks of it, that site is slightly desynced mirror. The recent changes even shows information from our recent changes here, save being off by about 5 to 10 minutes. (If I were not concerned about malware, I would even try making an edit from that site and seeing what happens here.)
As far as a license goes, I think claiming they are Curse/Gamepedia does not qualify as attribution (as required by our copyright policy), so unless they are actually owned by Curse (which is unlikely considering the domain name) I think something illegal is going on there. KnightMiner · (t) 21:02, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
Maybe we should add on every Minecraft Wiki language something like this:

There are fake sites of the Minecraft Wiki online. Check the webaddress before you are going to make an edit, because (personal) information might get stolen. Curse will NEVER ask your e-mail address, password or any kind of this information via e-mail, after making an edit or whilst visiting one of the Wiki's

Is that an idea or not? --DarkShadowTNT NL Admin (tc) 13:08, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
But you can clearly see that it's a copy, because the Minecraft Wiki loads like immediatly, and the copy/paste website loads first the text. After that it loads the lay-out, like images, background etc. --DarkShadowTNT NL Admin (tc) 19:17, 2 October 2015 (UTC) P.S. The links to my pages are now working.

Creative failure[edit | edit source]

Firstly, have your tried creating an account? A lot of the filters no longer apply once you do.
Secondly, not that it has anything to do with the disallowment, but do we really need a new navbox? The current ones have a category for creative only, why do we need a separate one that has a lot less content? KnightMiner · (t) 23:41, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
