Broken link[edit]

The link to the IRC is incorrect; it should be [1]. -- Toshu (talk) 03:21, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

Main page relation[edit]

I believe the links on the sidebar should be closer and in sync to what is on the main page. For example there are many more links on the official links section of the main page than the sidebar. GoandgooTalk

A useful link[edit]

Top editors –Preceding unsigned comment was added by A20001017 (talkcontribs) at 11:53, 2 May 2014‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

While you may see this link as useful, it does not benefit the wider community and therefore does not need to go on the sidebar. GoandgooTalk

What should go on the sidebar[edit]

I think we need a discussion of what should be and what does not need to be on the sidebar. Pages like the Steam community, Minecraft Museum, Server list, Classic server list and IRC are not pages that are necessary under the Minecraft subgroup, and perhaps the sidebar should correspond more towards the main page (e.g. with pages such as Smelting, Brewing etc).

We already have some pages like the smelting and brewing under "Useful pages", but I agree some of the "Minecraft" pages could go. Specifically:
  • The Steam community claims to be unofficial, and even should it be official, it hardly seems to be a worthwhile resource, since Minecraft is not on Steam.
  • The server list is linked directly from the forums (since it is a sub section of the forums), so I would remove it as we already link the hub site. The classic server I would also remove since it is outdated (as it seems to be for an outdated version of the game)
  • I have never heard of Minecraft Museum other then in the sidebar. They were apparently a partner of the Minecraft Wiki, but I am unsure if that is still true. If it is still a partner, I would keep it similarly to the forums.
  • The Minecraft Wiki IRC is hardly used anymore, and the #Minecraft channel gets almost nothing related to minecraft posted on it. I would also agree to removing that.

I can confirm that the Steam group is NOT official. --HelenAngel (talk) 20:20, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

Twitter link[edit]

The twitter link is outdated. It should link to @mojang. @mojangteam is their old account (and has no tweets anymore). KnightMiner t/c 14:38, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

Done. — Orthotopetalk 15:59, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

Minecraft Twitch/ links on the side bar[edit]

Some time ago, HelenAngel said, "One of the devs noticed that the official Minecraft Twitch & Beam channels aren't listed on the sidebar here. How do I get them added? For reference- &". See Talk:Minecraft Wiki#How do we add links to the sidebar?. Could an admin please add these links underneath the "Links" section in order for them to appear on the sidebar? Thanks, Maethoredhel (tcLogs) 17:21, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Looks like the twitter page is in the sidebar. The BlobsPaper JE2 BE2.png 19:31, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
Twitter is very different from Twitch and Beam. Twitch and Beam should be included. --HelenAngel (talk) 01:30, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
Then yes, the links should be added. The BlobsPaper JE2 BE2.png 03:17, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

Link blocks to block[edit]

Could somebody changed the link to "blocks" under "useful pages" so that it instead links to block? Currently it goes to the blocks disambiguation page. (make the source "block|blocks" instead of "blocks|blocks")--Orange Glazed Terracotta JE2 BE2.pngMadminecrafter12TalkContributions 16:45, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

Discord server[edit]

Can a link to the official Minecraft Discord server ( be added to the Links section? - MinecraftPhotos4U (talk) 15:39, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

Official pages[edit]

A link to these would be useful, either in main or Useful pages. - User-12316399 (talk) 08:07, 26 April 2019 (UTC)

I can't think of a good place for it on the main page, and not for in the sidebar either. Where would you suggest it should go exactly? It's a quite unusual page. – Jack McKalling [ Book and Quill JE2 BE2.png Diamond Pickaxe JE3 BE3.png ] 09:05, 1 May 2019 (UTC)
Possibiy just underneath Admin noticeboard. - User-12316399 (talk) 16:33, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
Could work.  Support. – Jack McKalling [ Book and Quill JE2 BE2.png Diamond Pickaxe JE3 BE3.png ] 09:03, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

Include Minecraft Dungeons links[edit]

As the wiki is now documenting Minecraft Dungeons as well, I would like to propose an update sidebar to reflect this by adding a "Games" section and changing the content of the "Useful pages" section for Minecraft Dungeons pages.   HorseFace.png Gamepedia icon.png MarkusRost (talk) 17:34, 28 May 2020 (UTC)

 Support. -PancakeIdentity (talk) 17:56, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
 Strong support, and I have several link suggestions for useful pages: MCD:Locations, MCD:Artifacts, MCD:Armors. – ItsPlantseed|⟩ 18:04, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
Added them to the list, see User:MarkusRost/sidebar/Minecraft Dungeons for how it will look like on MCD pages.   HorseFace.png Gamepedia icon.png MarkusRost (talk) 18:20, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
 Strong Support --Treeislife2 (talk) 18:11, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
 Done, I updated the sidebar.   HorseFace.png Gamepedia icon.png MarkusRost (talk) 15:53, 30 May 2020 (UTC)

Change Random Page from Special:RandomRootpage to Special:Random[edit]

The former does not link to subpages making it not consistant, also see the communtiy portal talk.---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 01:25, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

It might then link to /ED etc subpages, then. Not sure how that could be avoided.  Nixinova T  C   01:28, 8 September 2020 (UTC)
True.... but it does not link to tutorials or other important subpages......---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 20:48, 12 September 2020 (UTC)
