References[edit]

Should articles be using <references/>
or
{{reflist}}? I've seen them both used interchangeably, and I'm wondering whether there is a standard that articles should follow. GoandgooTalk

I asked the same question on Minecraft Wiki talk:Style guide#References, but since no one answered, I went with replacing every ref tag I find while editing with {{reflist}} on the grounds of consistency to match the articles that need to use it, since they don't have the option.

Ok, so I guess we'll use that one then. GoandgooTalk

My edits won't save[edit]

For some reason when I edit {while I'm logged in} it only saves for about 15 minutes, then it goes back to the way it was before. I check the preview and click save, but although it says it saved {and does for a few minutes} when I get off and check on it later it is back to normal. I have tried like 4 times but it keeps turning back to normal. Is this a glitch in need of attention? If not, what should I be doing? –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Powerguy360 (talkcontribs) at 17:39, 13 June 2015 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

You might want to check the page history to see if your edit has been reverted (which should also leave a notification). Note that if it was reverted, you should not remake the edit without both a good reason and an edit summary.
Otherwise it is a bug I have never seen, and since it is a software bug it is out of the bounds of this help page, so I would suggest taking it to the MCW:Admin noticeboard or the Gamepedia help forums instead. KnightMiner t/c 00:25, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for your help. Someone did revert it because they misunderstood what I meant. I reverted it and explained it to them on their talk page. Again, thanks. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Powerguy360 (talkcontribs) at 17:38, 14 June 2015 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~
