Minecraft Wiki:Admin noticeboard

Jump to: navigation, search
If you believe you have been wrongfully blocked, you may discuss the block on your talk page, which you usually will still be able to edit.

The admin noticeboard is one way through which users can notify administrators of issues needing administrative attention. While users are welcome to directly contact specific administrators (especially if they are seen to be active), posting here can be an easier and quicker way of ensuring that at least one admin will notice an issue and respond to it promptly. Remember to sign (using four tildes: ~~~~) when posting an issue.

Before posting an issue here, please consider the following:

  • This page is for reporting wiki issues. Please post any discussions on the community portal talk page.
  • Post only issues that require administrative action, i.e. blocking vandals, protecting pages, restoring deleted pages etc.
  • Do not post deletion requests here; instead, the page should be tagged for deletion.
  • Do not post issues regarding content disputes. Try making a request for comment instead.
  • Mediation requests between users should only be made once a resolution could not be reached between users.
  • For issues regarding the use of this wiki, please see our help center.
  • For issues with filters preventing edits from being saved: filters are not able to be disabled for specific people. However, an admin may be able to perform the edit themselves for you. "New user" filters expire after you log in and make some edits around the wiki.

In case of vandalism, posting about it here is low priority. Revert it first, anyone can do so. If the vandal created a new page, tag it for deletion. Assume good faith and consider leaving a message on that user's talk page to explain the reason. Post here only if the user has made several disruptive edits and/or persists despite a warning. Always avoid a revert war with the vandal; it is far better to wait until an admin has a chance to intervene. If a user must be reported here, please use {{user}}, preferably as the topic subject/headline.

Please post new topics at the bottom of the page by clicking the "add topic" tab above.

Someone removed the old .json code in a tutorial[edit]

I was browsing about behavior packs and a way to make one, then I found that the manifest.json example in https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Tutorials/Creating_behavior_packs was very different from the one in resource packs tutorial.

Can you rollback the changes? Btw I already found the right files in Mojang's Vanilla Behavior Pack example, so I can still progress through the tutorial.

Thank you. 15:27, 20 June 2020 (UTC)

Well the page ended up getting semi-protected because people kept removing stuff and adding nonsense, so it isn't that much of a problem. James Haydon (talk) 02:36, 3 September 2020 (UTC)

Finally back / RE Herobrine's page[edit]

Hello current Minecraft Wiki admins. I am Kizzycocoa, a former admin for a period of 8 years, if I recall correctly. I've finally regained control of my account following several years of waiting and back-and-forth with the staff. Apologies for the stray comment on the talk page - I am not permitted to remove it it seems. It has been a fair while.

Sadly, the way it has worked out, they've essentially had to fully reset my account. I'm about to go on a soul-search to reacquire old pages from the source code. It is going to take some time I fear, to convert the old HTML to wiki markup.

I had an agreement when I left the wiki team. I would be permitted to make edits to the Herobrine page. I had quite the extensive history there. Now that I have finally regained control, can I have that privilege reaffirmed?

Thanks in advance for your reply,

--Kizzycocoa (talk|contribs) 23:52, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

Great to see you back. :)
The Herobrine page is currently only semi-protected, so you (and any registered user) should be able to edit it, but let me know if you can't (I've also removed the duplicate post on the admin noticeboard talk page, as I presume that's what you wanted).--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 23:57, 6 August 2020 (UTC)
Ah, I see. Opened it to the public? A tad risky, but I suppose by now, the meme has probably died down. Good to hear though, I suppose I only saw I couldn't edit it as I wasn't properly logged in.
Still, thanks for the reply and help! I wish there were some way that Gamepedia would recognise the true age of the account, but eh. I guess this is the best that can be done. All because Twitch screwed up my original account with an auto-deleted account that refused to merge, then GDPR wiped my page away. Bleh.
Thanks again! --Kizzycocoa (talk|contribs) 00:01, 7 August 2020 (UTC)
The protection has been at its current level for a while now and it hasn't received an excessively large amount of disruptive edits. I remember how annoying it was before, where any registered user who wanted to modify the page would have to ask an admin to perform every single edit. And do note that it does still have semi-protection, so anonymous users are still not able to edit it. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Madminecrafter12 (talkcontribs) at 02:11, 7 August 2020 (UTC).

Good to hear. Yes, I recall those days. a lot of fond, and infuriating days. Like when they guy kept spamming "KORN" everywhere. fun times.
Still, good to be back, at least for the moment. Keep up the good work! :) --Kizzycocoa (talk|contribs) 00:14, 7 August 2020 (UTC)

Piglin Brute page was vandalized earlier today[edit]

Due to repeated vandalism by ip addresses, I suggest that that page should be semi-protected for a week. Blockofnetherite (talk) 16:31, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

 Oppose despite it being bombed with vandalsim by ip adrresses, there are still some that do good edits and it only gets vandalsized like twice a day.---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 18:46, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
 Comment Okay, that makes sense. Still unsure if the page should still be protected. We'll see. Blockofnetherite (talk) 02:02, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
 CommentLooking at the abuse log (this is vague) the log captures on average 1 edit a day though the edits are usually clumped, about other vandalsim, idk.---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 02:23, 13 August 2020 (UTC)

Protect MCD:Creeping Winter[edit]

ip-addresses keep putting fake release dates with no source so like please protect, also make a filter that prevents new people from editing as new accounts also put fake release date. ---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 21:14, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

For future readers, Creeper Winter release date was very recently set to be September 8, so there no more point in protecting it. Sagessylu (discuss | edits) 09:29, 14 August 2020 (UTC)

Can't edit the page "Bedrock Dedicated Server" to explain how to fix an issue connecting on a local machine[edit]

I am trying to edit https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/index.php?title=Bedrock_Dedicated_Server and add a new paragraph under the section "Connection" to explain how it's possible to connect to a BDS on Minecraft for Windows 10 on a local machine but I get the following as the error message: "Global AF - New user posting suspicious links". Everything after this sentence is exactly what I wanted to post to the page (I had to separate the offending URL with spaces and replace the "."s with DOT but if you go into the editor you can remove the spaces and replace the dots to see what I was trying to reference):

By default Minecraft for Windows 10 does not support connections to a server hosted on the same machine (where you connect via To fix this you must launch Windows PowerShell as an administrator and run the following[1]:

 Yes. See User talk:Minecraftdabest!. Blockofnetherite Talk Contributions 20:52, 20 August 2020 (UTC)
I already got the answer🧐---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 21:04, 20 August 2020 (UTC)

Should we keep reddit communities on the main page of no-longer-supported platforms?[edit]

For example, the one for Xbox 360 Edition. Should it stay on the main page, or be kept? Blockofnetherite Talk Contributions 01:04, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

 Delete those subreddits are highky inactive and unused.---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 02:22, 22 August 2020 (UTC)
I think maybe we should keep it as it would be a nice relic of an older time. James Haydon (talk) 18:30, 22 August 2020 (UTC)
I don't see a point. Especially since inactive subreddits can be claimed by a new admin staff, so inactive means its a bit of a risk. KnightMiner · (t) 01:19, 23 August 2020 (UTC)
So someone else or some people could claim that entire subreddit because it was inactive??? James Haydon (talk) 03:12, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

Are APNGs no longer supported ?[edit]

APNGs used to animate if you didn't reduce or enlarge their size. However, this is no longer supported. Should we change these backgrounds to white and convert them to GIFs? Pneuma01 (talk) 06:47, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

Sprites can't be updated[edit]

Currently, the sprite editor is broken, so I tried to added Broken Anvil manually to {{BlockSprite}} and {{InvSprite}} by editing the module and image, but it didn't work. Sprites from {{InvSprite}} link to minecraft.gamepedia.com/media/4/44/InvSprite.png/revision/latest?cb=20200823200309?cb=20200823200309, which doesn't go to revision 20200823200309, but instead the "latest" revision, which actually uses revision 20200822212120 (static.wikia.nocookie.net/minecraft_gamepedia/images/4/44/InvSprite.png/revision/latest) This means that Broken Anvil for {{InvSprite}} still shows which is replaced with the actual Broken Anvil in the latest revision of InvSprite.png. I'm not sure if that is the problem, but that's what I think might be it. --Unavailablehoax (talk) 08:53, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

I also confirmed that. I thought the reverse proxy server cache was lagging, but it's not going to go away after quite some time. Pneuma01 (talk) 10:07, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

The one reason is that Template:FileUrl, which is used in Module:Sprite, should be updated. revision/latest?cb=.... (which was't returned by {{filepath:...}} before migration, at least I think so) need to be cut off. Then minecraft.gamepedia.com/media/4/44/InvSprite.png?version=... works well.--Chixvv (talk) 12:06, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

It wasn't returned, but it seems versions need to be exact now. Just any version will not work. minecraft.gamepedia.com/media/4/44/InvSprite.png?version=actual_version_but_with_any_changes will show a blank image.
Can we check that all versions used in sprites are valid? --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 12:19, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
Also, the caching issue may be fixable. I'm not sure we should hurry to update a key template in a manner that might break everything and end up useless. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 12:24, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
I don't know why you said the version used in sprites might be invalid. It doesn't need to be completely exact. For InvSprite.png, 20200823200309, 99999999999999, 1598212989555, 1598212999999, etc. work the same now. Template:FileUrl should be update anyway because it can't work properly now, which has nothing to do with caching issue, and simply cutting off revision/latest?cb=.... will not break any existing content.--Chixvv (talk) 13:19, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
Oh, it works? Probably just took too long for me to load at first. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 13:22, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
Do you have some way to also retain support for downscaling images used as URLs? The format of them is /revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/%d?cb=..., where %d is the width in pixels. I couldn't find a way to get a background image both use a scaled-down variant and the version string. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 13:36, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
I edited it, and it seems to work--Chixvv (talk) 14:25, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
Now it stopped working if a query is specified. I added a test case to the docs. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 14:28, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
Gotta say i like that banner pattern . James Haydon (talk) 15:12, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
Now I have no idea. I think we have no way to make it with minecraft.gamepedia.com/media/. How about discarding the parameter of size? Through searching, I found that no page uses this parameter. And if you like, we can also make FileUrl2 a separate template that uses static.wikia.nocookie.net/minecraft_gamepedia/images/ to support for downscaling images.--Chixvv (talk) 15:17, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, I fixed it, the error was in my testing code and not the template itself. I passed the query as the second (size) parameter. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 17:18, 27 August 2020 (UTC)
InvSprites should be fixed. Modules should return back to using version for images. Enjoy your broken anvils. (: --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 17:21, 27 August 2020 (UTC)

Protect Piglin[edit]

Now the main reason would be the change from hostile to neutral and back and forth.---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 19:29, 25 August 2020 (UTC)


They are hostile because that is their default nature. Baby piglins spawn much less frequently than normal piglins and piglins are neutral if the player is wearing gold armor a very specific term, if we called piglins neutral, why is the drowned called hostile? they are passive during the day, that is why that terminalogy is incorrect, most of the edits that change hostile to neutral are from ip-adrresses so it would be nice to protect it with semi protection.

Suggesting that the categories of "hostile", "neutral", and "friendly" mobs are disbanded due to definition ambiguities with whether a mob is neutral or not. I believe the categories are always replaceable, including by more detailed introduction sections. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 20:00, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

Oppose the idea 22:39, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

Add link option to Module:Iconbar[edit]

Currently, icons from a iconbar can be clicked on, which links to the icon file page. There should be an option to specify a link, which I've added in Module:Iconbar/editcopy, and used it on {{Healthbar/sandbox}}.

Minecraft Games[edit]

Hi, I don't know who will help but I guess admins can do anything! Minecraft also has another edition: Minecraft Education Edition. You should create a wiki for Minecraft Education Edition like you did for Minecraft Earth and Dungeons. --Minecrafter9767 (talk) 11:01, 28 August 2020 (UTC)

It's an edition of Minecraft, not a seperate game, much like Bedrock Edition or Java Edition -- Unavailablehoax (talk) 11:09, 28 August 2020 (UTC)
Minecraft Education Edition is technically synonymous with Bedrock Edition so it really isn't a separate game. James Haydon (talk) 06:51, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

A false information on Bedrock Edition removed features[edit]

In Bedrock Edition Removed Features page, there is a false information that you can no longer sprint on water.

we need a page on 1.17, due to the fact that we have a page for 1.16 and before. We had a page for 1.16 when we were in 1.14 so why not now?

 Blocked by FVbico. That user was soo salty just look at the messages in his edits. James Haydon (talk) 17:11, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
It turns out he was blocked again. He harassed FVbico and he is once again replacing the {{more sounds}} templates. Fadyblok240 (talk) 12:57, 19 September 2020 (UTC)


They vandalized some pages like Squid Coast , Minecraft Dungeons Items template and the Skeleton Vanguard page. James Haydon (talk) 17:23, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

Alpha 1.0.16_02[edit]

It's possible to download Alpha 1.0.16_02 version at https://archive.org/download/Minecraft-JE-Alpha/a1.0.16_02/

I tried adding the download link to the talk page and it directed me here.

--Jwilton (talk) 08:07, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

The Java Edition Alpha v1.0.16 02 page already lists a download; what is your reason for trying to add it?  Nixinova T  C   09:01, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

Block _________.[edit]

Reopening this on the bottom because it's hard to track with the waves of discussions. (old link MCW:Admin noticeboard#Block _____)---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 19:17, 9 September 2020 (UTC)

Maybe we could have an admin noticeboard subpage for requests that shouldn't be more complex than "block this person - done/not needed"? --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 20:01, 9 September 2020 (UTC)

Why does MCT:Community portal/Archive 28 exist?[edit]

Looking at the dates, they conflict with archive 26-27 (Archive 26 is Q1 and 2 of 2019, 27 is Q3 & 4, 28 is 2019 (whole year). Why? Delete Archive 28, place the contents of 28 to 26 & 27 and move 29 to 28 excluding July fowards (2 half of 2020).---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 23:27, 9 September 2020 (UTC)

Are you looking at the end dates? They should all be separate.  Nixinova T  C   23:29, 9 September 2020 (UTC)
The end date is Dec for 27 and 28, 26 is middle of the year.---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 23:42, 9 September 2020 (UTC)

Removing a section from "Java Edition 1.16.3 Release Candidate 1"[edit]

Trying to remove a section from "Java Edition 1.16.3 Release Candidate 1" failed due to "New User" or something. I sujest you remove this from said page, as SlicedSlime is unlikely to make a video.

I removed it. The code was commented properly, using <!-- ... -->. ~ Amatulic (talk) 15:43, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

Create File:Invisible Bedrock.png[edit]

Can someone create it as a redirect to File:Blank.png? It was protected from creation because of repetative re-creation---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 00:14, 13 September 2020 (UTC)

Done  Nixinova T  C   00:35, 13 September 2020 (UTC)

Improved styling for hatnotes[edit]

I've noticed that there is unnecessary whitespace between and after hatnotes. I created a common.css and a version of {{hatnote/sandbox|hatnote}} that I improved by decreasing line spacing between hatnotes and also improving the use of italics. Both pages I want to change are protected. Fadyblok240 (talk) 13:40, 14 September 2020 (UTC)

Need to be updated Winter wiki.png[edit]

I found a new texture version when I was on the Chinese wiki, and the English wiki is the old texture. Need to be updated.-- Xiaoyinface.png Duowan channelT&C) 06:27, 15 September 2020 (UTC)

I prefer the old texture, though ill need a comparison. James Haydon (talk) 02:56, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
However, it must be updated to a new texture.-- Xiaoyinface.png Duowan channelT&C) 07:14, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

Yeah, the current winter wiki logo over here looks weird, and the stone background in the Chinese wiki is also updated. Here's a comparison table between those:

I dont think it looks weird, i just think the new textures look too smooth. James Haydon (talk) 19:05, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
Which one are you referring to as weird? I think the winter logo in the English Wiki looks weird. – Unavailablehoax (talk) 03:21, 19 September 2020 (UTC)

Changes to "Useful pages" list in wiki sidebar[edit]

I have two changes proposed to the "Useful pages" list in the sidebar of the wiki to the left, if it is possible to implement.

  1. Change the link texts of "Resource pack" and "Redstone circuit" to plural form, for consistency to the other links in the list and the links from "Popular and useful pages" on the main page.
  2. Exchange some links from the sidebar "Useful pages" and the main page "Popular and useful pages" that one or the other does not already have. I'm not gonna specify any links myself because I haven't thought it through, but you can discuss it if needed.

In my opinion, suggestion 1 should be implemented regardless. 02:05, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

Block https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Special:Contributions/[edit]

Block them because they did vandalism on minecraft dungeons pages TheGreatSpring (talk) 04:25, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

They seem to have stopped for now, but they probably changed ip's though. James Haydon (talk) 19:07, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

Semi protect Splash[edit]

A week ago User:Nixinova protected Splash for a week, but the disruption resumed after the protection lifted, and one anon is currently edit-warring about it. There is talk page discussion about this too, with the anon basically stating an intent to continue disruption. I recommend semi-protection at least until the US federal election is over on 3 November. ~ Amatulic (talk) 23:48, 19 September 2020 (UTC)

Semi-protection would probably not work, they'll just keep registering accounts. Other measures to handle this are being taken. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 00:15, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
Late addition. Semi-protection is back though. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 00:15, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. Amatulic (talk) 00:22, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
Protection is now full until Sep 27, but i think that they will still be coming back. James Haydon (talk) 03:59, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
Seems like semi protection would have been sufficient to prevent anonymous IP addresses and brand-new accounts from editing. Does semi work differently here compared to Wikipedia? ~ Amatulic (talk) 06:05, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
Semi = registered on Gamepedia, annoyingly.  Nixinova T  C   06:11, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
Huh. Isn't there a means of protection here that imposes an age and activity threshold? On the English Wikipedia where I'm an admin, "semi" protects against registered accounts that are less than 5 days old OR have less than 10 edits. We also have "extended confirmed", which protects against registered accounts less than 30 days old OR have less than 500 edits. And of course full protection. Oh, and there's another one called "pending changes protection" that I rarely use because I regard it as useless; it's weaker than semi, letting anybody edit but not making that edit visible publicly until a user with the "reviewer" right approves the change (as far as I've seen, this protection level just creates more work for others). ~ Amatulic (talk) 06:30, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

Block[edit] (talkcontribslogsblock log) keeps re-adding a personal off-topic video to Bedrock Edition 1.12.0, and won't stop. I'm not used to the blocking procedure here; are there warning templates we need to apply to a user's talk page before blocking, like we do on Wikipedia? ~ Amatulic (talk) 06:00, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

They don't need to be applied, but there's a list here: Category:Talk page templates#U.  Nixinova T  C   06:12, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. The user seems to have stopped. Either they gave up, or saw the note I left on the user's talk page. ~ Amatulic (talk) 06:20, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
