Minecraft Wiki Sandbox

This User-Wiki experiment is to allow us to review our own rules based on the community, and to allow pages that normally would be shot down, to try to stand, based on community interest.

When using this sandbox, you must still follow Wiki Rules 1, 2, 5, 13, 15.1, 21.1 and 22. You must also follow these additional rules:

  • No edit wars, particularly over deletion. If you find content that is obviously useless, report it to an admin.
  • If you have a grievance with the subject, do not add a delete tag. Instead, voice your opinion on the talk page.
  • All sandbox pages MUST be formatted as "Minecraft Wiki:Sandbox/PAGENAME". If you do not format it as such, it will not have the same protection as sandbox pages.
  • When sandbox pages grow too old, or have too little edits/interest, they will be subject to deletion at the admin's discretion.
  • Pages in this category will be primarily judged on their content when in an approval stage. However, all pages must have some form of connection with Minecraft.
  • No meme/spam pages.

Welcome to the Minecraft Wiki sandbox. under this project, you can test out pages that are a work in progress, or would ordinarily be deleted, such as community or minigame pages. To edit, simply add a "/" to the URL on your URL bar, and type in the name of the page that you want to add. Be sure to link it To this page, or it will be deleted.

Once made, we, the wiki, will allow you to make these pages without the threat of immediate deletion collaboratively, provided all mandatory rules listed above are followed.

Once final, we will review the page, to see if it deserves a place on the wiki. If it is of good quality, but violates a rule, we will review if those rules are up to par with the community expectations and hopes of the wiki, or perhaps make an exception to the rules.

If a page is not satisfactory for the wiki, it will be deleted. A log of reasons why the page was deleted will be provided at Minecraft Wiki:Sandbox/Deletion_Log. You may retry a project if an admin has not condemned the subject entirely.

Please do not place copyrighted, offensive, or libelous content in the sandboxes.

If you have registered an account you can find or create your own user sandbox here.

Proposed sandbox pages[edit]

New-Ideas I tried to make a page where people would post there ideas about what they think should be added to Minecraft. It got redirected by someone cause he said it didn't deserve it's own page. Kinda like kizzycocoa's idea below. It got redirected to: New-Ideas Mcpantsonfire 21:38, 25 September 2012 (UTC)mcpantsonfire

That was for MC ideas. this is for MC pages. completely different league. the previous is a wishlist, while my pages are not, but cover items that currently would be seen as unworthy. --Kizzycocoa 12:27, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
ideas go on the forums. I think we need to add a rule stating this. it is taking up most talk pages. Robstar14... anything but! 16:29, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

An area for people to post current projects and get feedback?

Gallery: Where people submit their original minecraft related artwork to be viewed by others. We, the Minecraft Page: A page where we would submit the updates and changes that we would want, and talk about how we could implement them into various mods.

The issue here is moderation. unless you get get very specific rules regarding adding more images, this idea is likely to be rejected. --Kizzycocoa 11:29, 26 July 2012 (UTC)


Melon farming tutorial: it's a melon farming tutorial. Kind of self explanatory. (Split Melon (Block)#Farming into new page?) –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Greel123456 (Talk|Contribs) 04:29, 26 May 2012 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Biomes, I think it would be a good idea to make a page for each main biome (Forest, Ocean, Desert etc. ), already suggested it on the biome talk page cause I didn't know this page existed. What do you think? -- TheWombatGuru t | c NL Admin 20:27, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
Here's an example of what a biome page should look like: User:TheWombatGuru/Forest, and the main biomes page should just explain what biomes are and a redirect to all the biomes pages. -- TheWombatGuru t | c NL Admin 20:55, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
Given that the main argument against biome pages is "not enough material for a page apiece", I suggest you try filling in that example page with actual material, rather than "blah blah blah". You can start with what's already on the Wiki in various places. --Mental Mouse 22:48, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
