Links[edit]

i'm involved with some reddit communities relating to the 360 and PE version of minecraft -

/user/jbernhardsson is a confirmed reddit account for johan bernhardsson - primary developer of pocket edition

also,

/user/4jsteve - is a confirmed reddit account for Steve Woodward - 4J Studios QA bug tester fro Minecraft XBLA -

since i'm a relatively new wiki contributor - it won't let me add links...

If you are a autoconfirmed user, you can post links. from the page: "Autoconfirmed users are users with accounts that are at least 4 days old, have made at least 10 edits to any page (in any namespace) and have a confirmed email address." In response to your question, I think it would be a good idea. GoandgooTalk

"Claimed phenomenon"[edit]

Personally, I feel like this portion should be removed entirely. Clearly the only reason I can give is that some images or videos may appear to be "proof" of the claimed phenomenon, but others may be complete hoaxes due to modifications, resource packs, and the like. -BDJP (t|c) 00:41, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

I agree to removing it, as it really is a case to case basis of whether a picture/video is enough proof for something (which should be discussed case by case), especially after the whole Herobrine hoax (and later hoaxes inspired by that one). I also really cannot think of a case that needs to be proven by a picture or video of Minecraft with the exception of bugs, which don't belong here anyways (or in the case that a bug is notable enough, the bug ticket being confirmed can be used as a source), anything else fits under the category of "easily tested in game".

Fan-run wikis are not citable sources themselves. If their page has good references, use those; if not, the page is written by some anonymous person on the internet, and what proof is there that they're correct? -- Orthotopetalk 23:31, 26 June 2016 (UTC)
