Start of the Talk Page[edit source]

I dunno why I wanted a talk page, anyone have any ideas? Here's one: To discuss things otherwise I dunno. IKJames 14:32, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

Well, someone might want to thank you for something you did, or if you did something wrong they might let you know. -F1racer101 20:55, 23 December 2010 (CST)
Agreed. IKJames 02:58, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
Hopefully you can answer questions people might have for you too? People would appreciate it. :) Tangent Tom 22:55, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
Wondering why you keep deleting my article on capes? yes its not specific but i usually look on here to see if anythings new then decide wether to bother going on MC. if you have beta, press f5 and you'll see yourself CLEARLY wearing a cape with a christmas tree on it. please dont delete my article again. Dolmandabean 03:42, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
It was deleted due to breaking Wiki Rule #3. IKJames 03:47, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Translation is not allowed?[edit source]

you deleted my chinese-translated page of "blocks" twice.Could I know why?or how could I join the translation project?Fls81245 03:26,1 January 2011 (UTC)

There's no supported translation section for Chinese yet, they might add it in eventually - you'd need to ask citricsquid or WedTM IKJames 03:43, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
Can you move the article to subpage of that user if you're unsure of the policy? Since there is currently no rule about deletion of translated articles, your deletion is unlawful. If you can delete articles without basis of what is defined by rules, then what's the point of administration by rules? Xfs 03:49, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
I could of done that, but I'm guessing now the user can now simply recreate it under there. IKJames 04:22, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
I see.Anyway,I'll keep translating and keep them in my computer.And I'll add them into wiki when it supports.thanks!Fls8124504:02,1 January 2011 (UTC)
I'm guessing that might make it more likely that they'll support it if the translations happen a lot and not only just a few times. IKJames 04:22, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Delete rather than move?[edit source]

I noticed you deleted an article twice today because you said it should have been in the Tutorials section. Fair enough, but why didn't you just move it there yourself? Would have been a lot quicker than deleting it and typing in your reason for deletion, surely? --DannyF1966 18:40, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Technically there already was a article over the in the Tutorials section for it titled "Beginner's Guide" IKJames 18:42, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
just throwing my opinion in here, but if they make a tutorial in the mainspace, that means they haven't read the wiki rules, and the page deserves deletion for that alone. just my personal opinion.--Kizzycocoa 18:44, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Trigger happy[edit source]

I'm amazed. I just spent hours writing 20kb of new material for the Materials page, from scratch, and you just deleted it without question - apparently for the reason the PREVIOUS version was removed. Did you honestly think that was an undelete operation I performed (hint: regular users can't do that), or were you purposely seeking to get a rise out of me? I'm not a happy camper. -  Bomb Bloke (Talk/Contribs) 01:26, 26 December 2010 (CST)

I went through the history of the last version to see why it was deleted due to this was a new page, I came to conclusion it should of been deleted like the last time since the information seemed to of been contained on other pages - just like what the old delete tag mentioned. I'm sure I could let the other Adminstrators have their say on it too (I'm guessing they'd agree with me) IKJames 01:43, 26 December 2010 (CST)

Opacity deletion[edit source]

Hello. I just found opacity was deleted with a cause "Breaking Wiki Rule #3". I read this rule before but let me cite it here:

Pages about very simple things, e.g. "House", "Deleting", "Bed" and others, are not allowed. These topics are very unnecessary as they are plain tasks anybody with a tiny bit of intelligence can do.

But I don't think opacity is a very simple thing. I wrote the opacity article after explosion because I thought opacity at least controls part of the explosion behavior. Then It took me half a day to read the decompiled source to give a comprehensive description of it. This property is widely referenced in many block definitions, and has sophiscated effect on redstone and water behaviors which I had planned to elaberate on. I hope you can undelete this article and let me finish it. Xfs 19:25, 26 December 2010 (UTC)

The Explosion page is now marked as needing to be merged with TNT due to the relationship between Creepers and TNT. Making a page on opacity is like making a page on food digestion, you can put this info on other pages though. IKJames 19:35, 26 December 2010 (UTC)
Please. It's necessary and can't be put into other pages. For example, A note mentioned trees have a characteristic:

Growing leaves will destroy fences and may destroy glass and torches if they attempt to grow horizontally in the same space.

This is actually incomplete, and can be corrected as

Growing leaves will destroy any opaque blocks if they attempt to grow horizontally in the same space.

Then we need a definition of what opaque blocks are. If information about opacity must be put into other pages, it will look like this in every page referencing opacity:

Growing leaves will destroy any sapling, yellow flower, red rose, brown mushroom, red mushroom, crops, reed, water, stationary water, lava, stationary lava, leaves (only when graphics are on fancy), glass, step, mob spawner, wooden and cobblestone stairs, soil, snow, ice, cactus, fence, torch, fire, redstone (wire), sign post, wooden and iron door, ladder, minecart tracks, wall sign, lever, wooden and stone pressure plate, redstone torch off/on, button, portal blocks if they attempt to grow horizontally in the same space.

Or it will be inomplete if not lengthy:

Growing leaves will destroy fences and many other blocks, if they attempt to grow horizontally in the same space.

Opacity is a property of blocks on its own sake. OK, I realize I can put it into Blocks. Can you undelete it and merge it with Blocks? Xfs 01:52, 27 December 2010 (UTC)
Can you please respond to my appeal? What I requested requires little effort to accomplish. Xfs 03:37, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
Ok, fine. IKJames 06:24, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

Brave New World[edit source]

Hi, I am wonder why you consistently remove the Brave New World page?


It breaks Wiki Rule #10, also is using a illegal copy of iCraft IKJames 05:50, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

Totemquest[edit source]

So, I just spent about 3 hours tediously perfecting a new article I wrote, giving a guide as to how to play a new ruleset devised by someone on the forum, and this guy on a whim just outright deletes the thing, citing rule 8 which appears to have absolutely nothing to do with my article, assuming this was the rule 8 he was talking about:

"8. Pages that explain strategies/designs or provide guides should be placed as a Tutorial subarticle. (for example, Tutorials/Stockroom design) A. You are free to link to a strategy/design in other articles as long as they are related to the article's topic. B. This includes any navigational features of blocks, items or textures."

My article was not a tutorial but an article on a new ruleset, like that of Spleef, called 'Totemquest'.

Good thing I have the article's raw text saved on my computer, since people like this guy will just go through and ruin someone's work that they spent 3 hours carefully writing. Harsh much?? Wow. What a complete jerk. --Pulseczar 04:13, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

I should point out Wiki Rule #3 Section a in that case if you compare it to Spleef. IKJames 04:21, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
Why aren't ruleset descriptions allowed on Minepedia (other than Spleef?) Hurting that bad for hard drive space? Why was it that imperative that you delete the article without giving any warning whatsoever? Destroying people's work just something you get off on? How are gameplay rulesets not a worth-while topic on the wiki? How dare people come up with their own goals in the game and their own rules to play the game by and then share these new game rulesets with others? --Pulseczar 04:34, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
I'm just enforcing the rules like I'm told to, I'm guessing it'd be okay under Tutorials since those describe various gameplay elements (and rules?). IKJames 04:38, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
Can you be a little more helpful? Almost all contribution of you is an article introducing a piece of software developed by yourself and innumerable loose deletion of others' contribution. Xfs 04:41, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
They picked me due to I was making useful contributions, the edits I've done haven't only been for my software(s). ;) IKJames 05:30, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
I think they picked you more for your fantastic bootlicking abilities. Can you please stop immediately deleting information with crap explanations and start moving it to the appropriate space instead or even opening things up for discuession? That'd result in fewer headaches all around. JohnnyMadhouse 09:29, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
Before, I had not gotten around to linking to the Totemquest article from anywhere or putting it into any category because I had just finished writing and creating the page, and had not yet figured out where it should go. I think there should be a new page under the Gameplay category called 'Rulesets'. Spleef would be listed on the Rulesets page and then Totemquest would be listed under that. Your last post indicated that there might be an acceptable way to add the Totemquest article. Can you be clear as to exactly what that would be? Create an article like I did before, titled 'Totemquest', and simply link to it from the Tutorials page? What exactly would I need to do? --Pulseczar 05:07, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
You could put it under the Tutorials section where it'd fit, that's most likely the most acceptable area. Maybe Tutorials/Totemquest - though I'd wait and ask another wiki admin though. IKJames 05:30, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Hello everyone! I'm the creator of Totemquest and first of all, I'd like to thank Pulseczar for all the work he's done at porting my little rules here =). @IKjames: I think you aren't applying the rules correctly. I read rule 3A in detail, and it doesn't apply to our case, because it's nested inside rule 3. As you can see, it starts with "It includes..." And I shall point out that the rule started with "Pages about very simple things, e.g. House, Bed, are not allowed, there are plain tasks anyone with intelligence can do etc etc". Totemquest is neither simple nor anyone with a little intelligence can figure it out. So my point is: If you want rule 3A to be of general application, you should move it away from rule 3 because it's confusing and can lead to people like Pulseczar to lose their hard work. Also, tutorials doesn't seem like the right place to me. Tutorials are to help new people understand game content. Totemquest and any other ruleset people want to do should clearly be in the same cathegory as Spleef, and if that means making a new cathegory for Spleef, well, that would make sense. However, making an arbitrary restriction (only Spleef allowed in the wiki) when rulesets are a reality in the Minecraft community... It's just restricting for the sake of it.

Lava Engineering[edit source]

Just wondering why you deleted the page in case I can rectify it, I only started the page today, and haven't had much time to work on it, if it is an issue of the amount of content, I have a lot I plan to add, I just need some time. Thanks Tangent Tom 21:04, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Jerk[edit source]

Notch fake no longer needed? What about all those submissions to his facts! they need to be avenged!

Water Elevator[edit source]

Hey, instead of deleting the water elevator tutorial article for not being in tutorials, could you please move it? It's a valid tutorial to make, and it would be a shame to waste that person's work. I was working on clarifying some stuff and fixing the spelling mistakes before getting distracted earlier. So. Undelete and move please? --JohnnyMadhouse 01:09, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

Honestly. If minecart boosters get their own page, why shouldn't water elevators? Oh, now you're going to go delete that too, aren't you. Agent Muu 08:50, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

That's a great point. Can we get an answer, IKJames? --JohnnyMadhouse 21:40, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Some people forget that a wiki is something created by a community, not by 5 people that dictate what goes on them. The anal retention on this wiki is horrible. --Pulseczar 16:06, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Why did you delete[edit source]

Can i ask why you deleted my page Herobrine in muliplayer?

  • Krokkoguy: Though I am not an admin, i know why he did it. it breaks a rule about no conspiracy/conspiculation, herobrine is both.

Windows Phone 7 Development[edit source]

Hello, I'm interested in developing a minecraft database for the Windows Phone 7 platform. It may take anywhere from 2 weeks tgo 2 months to develop but I believe I can do it. All I need is the rights to use your property on this website.

Thank you, Sam Broomby

EDIT: Scratch that, I would like to make an official Windows Phone 7 Minepedia application.

Lava Engineering[edit source]

I really would like to make a page on the finer points of using lava in various applications, and some of the behavior of lava not on the wiki, as well as how it interacts with other blocks on a higher level than is currently on the wiki (specifically water). Where should I put the page since you deleted it when I made it as its own subject? Tangent Tom 22:12, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

Youtube[edit source]

Hello, i appologies if i am in the wrong by editing your page, in new here and not sure how to work it.

However I am some what of a veteran when it comes to youtube and have been around that scene awhile. What i would like to propose is i make a Youtube channel for this website, I will upload videos, how to craft videos etc, basicly for this website, then on each article page we can also have a video to show users how to craft.

Sorry again if i am posting this in the wrong place, or to the wrong person. If i am can you please pass on my details, to whoever is in charge

Contact me at: [email protected]

I have over 16,000 subscribers on Youtube. Thanks Lee

Writing an Article[edit source]

Hi, I'd like to write an article on the stars of Minecraft, or astronomy of Minecraft. I was wondering how this could be done, I don't seem to see any article creation tools anywhere on the wiki. Also, if there are any articles in English you need writing, I can do that too. I also would like to know how I can get a wiki sponsor badge for Minecraft forums, that would be a great title to have. I really don't know where else I can go to post this information, if I'm doing this wrong, feel free to inform me.

Thanks, Krunchyman

Wiki Directors[edit source]

Greetings to the administrators of Minecraft Wiki International!

In an attempt to bring the six language wikis into a more coherent working group, I have created the Minecraft Wiki Directors group on the English wiki. If you do not have an account there, please create one using the same username as on your wiki. If you already have one, you are already part of the usergroup.

This group has access to en:Minecraft Wiki:Directors a page and talk page strictly for communication about items for all of the Minecraft Wiki sites. I have listed some starter items that I think are areas where the 6 sites need to work in sync to be able to present a more unified experience for all of the communities we serve. I would like to see you all participating in discussion and also presenting ideas or addressing any issues you feel impact all of the sites.

Individually, our sites are a good resource for the Minecraft community worldwide, but working together we could be great!

Please add the Directors' page to your watchlist and notifications. Thanks! - Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 19:01, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Italian Translation Project looks dead[edit source]

Picture of redstone glitch[edit source]

I found a glitch about redstone connections (Added on bug section) and i would really have added a picture too, but i can't upload images. so i wonder if you could take a look on the explanation of this glitch in the bug section, and capture a pic ingame, followed by upload? :)

A question about the hungarian translation project.[edit source]

Hi, IKJames.
I'm a minecraft player from hungary, and I would like to take part in the hungarian translation project. Only problem, that it's not possible because the website software says that I don't have the right to create new pages. Is there a possible solution by any chance? I would like to create Items/hu and pages like that, not whole new wiki pages.

Classic Server Protocol Page Deleted[edit source]

I am wondering why the Classic Server Protocol Page was deleted as it was the only place I know of the colo(u)r codes list --Thtredstonegui 06:23, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

Deletion of Classic Server Protocol[edit source]

Why on earth did you delete the Classic Server Protocol page?

That was a really dumb move.

That was a VERY useful page, and actually you are not the only contributor. I updated some info, even though it was very little. Unless you tell me it was a mistake, and then restore the page, then I will vote for you getting banned. –The preceding unsigned comment was added by SpaceDot (Talk|Contribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~

First of all, sign your talk page posts with 4 tildes. Secondly no personal attacks, which you seem to be very good at. Thirdly, please wait for a reply to questions before you go running off to INACTIVE admins to complain. I have restored the page. iKJames, if you feel the page needs to be deleted, please tag it for deletion, and then provide your reasoning, and allow it to be discussed prior to actually deleting the page. Thanks! -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 13:57, 12 June 2011 (UTC)
By the way SpaceDot, there is no "voting to get someone banned" here. This isn't a democracy. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 14:10, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

As you see, I deleted the part about voting, so why comment on it? Plus it was a figurative speech.

so now for tildes? SpaceDot 17:18, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

because you wrote it, and you cannot simply unwrite it. you cannot pick and choose comments to alter how others see you that would be silly unprofessional. --Kizzycocoa 17:20, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

MCForge Infomation[edit source]

Hello IKJames My name is jakeanator14 and is in the admin team of MCForge. We have recently Merged with SSS(StormCom) and all those features will now be in the MCForge Vanilla so I would like for you to remove it from the Custom Server List and devs added to MCForge on behalf of merlin.

Also we would like to request a page for ForgeCraft which is going to be our beta software and would like to start on the page as it will be released soon and also if MCForge could have a page which would be VERY helpful i hope all this can happen thanks jake.

Relisting of MCDerp[edit source]

Feedback[edit source]

Hello! I want to thank you for everything you have done for the Minecraft Wiki. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Tesla, a wiki manager for Curse. The reason I am posting on your talk page is for some feedback. I was hoping you could tell me if there was something you would like to see on the wiki or if you think there is something we could do to help improve the quality of our service to the community. If you have any ideas at all, please feel free to stop by on my talk page and leave me your thoughts. Thank you! Tesla 06:39, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

Minecraft Wiki:Sandbox[edit source]

Hiya! just messaging all other admins about my project, the Minecraft Wiki:Sandbox.
This sandbox initiative is going to try to gauge what the community wants page-wise, and where they want the wiki to go.
the plan is to use that, and see if the wiki can go that way, if our rules need improving, or if it is not viable to go in certain directions with the wiki.
So, there will be many pages that break our current rules, that will be located at "Minecraft Wiki:Sandbox/PAGENAMES".
I'm just messaging to request, unless it is blatant spam, please don't delete these pages.
There is a system to delete these pages if they are too low quality, or not active enough, and a system to tell users what has been deleted, and why. as well as informing them if a page will never be reconsidered. This section of the wiki is to see if we can push the rules, and if we should we push the rules.
I welcome other admins to help take part in this project, to see how the wiki can viably adapt to the community.
Have a good day! :) --Kizzycocoa 22:26, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
