Minecraft Wiki:Admin noticeboard

From Minecraft Wiki
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. Deletion requests should be made by adding {{delete|reason}} to the top of the target page (excluding redirects, where the template should be placed after the #REDIRECT [[...]] line), which will then automatically mark the page as a candidate 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 make some edits around the wiki (some require you to be logged in).

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.

Why is editing through tor blocked?[edit]

Am i wrong for using tor? Do you trash our internet privacy? If you want to prevent abuse, then why isn't vpn blocked but tor? Do you think there are more people using tor then vpn? Just why? Why do you block tor users from editing? -- 196.245.151.215 08:04, 5 April 2020 (UTC)

Editing through Tor is blocked due to extensive abuse by bad-faith users. I can ask around and see if people think the block should be lifted, but I don't think they'll agree. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 11:32, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
Then why isn't vpn blocked as well like wikipedia? I believe the amount of abusers will decrease even more if you do so. -- 209.58.163.233 15:05, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
The problem with tor is that we cannot identify the editor, since the IP address would be different each time. If you really want to edit through tor, you can create an account. The BlobsPaper JE2 BE2.png 16:43, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
you still didn't answer my question. why isn't vpn blocked as well like tor? wikipedia does have both of them blocked. -- 37.120.203.90 13:31, 8 April 2020 (UTC)
I  Support the decision of blocking VPN. Doing so should decrease the number of vandalizm. - 113.29.230.200 13:26, 12 April 2020 (UTC)

Please temporarily suspend a user to get him to stop mass-editing pages without agreement[edit]

This user is mass-editing pages: https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/UserProfile:User-12316399
Apparently this has gone on for months already. One of the most common things is creating a nonsensical "occurrence" section to block pages that is pretty arbitrarily separated from the "obtaining" section.
The person was asked to take note of a discussion about this here: https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/User_talk:User-12316399#Block_articles_and_section_structure
In that discussion there was definitely no agreement in favour of this edit, quite the opposite, almost everyone was clearly against it. Yet the person keeps doing it. I posted on the talk page, the user page (a feature called "comment", no idea if that notifies the person) and on that discussion, yet, the person keeps doing these mass-edits without even replying.
I have also reverted a bunch of these edits, but that also didn't seem to give the person a hint. They didn't immediately revert that again, but sometimes came back to the same page later and did the same edit again.
I suspect that this user has removed all relevant pages from their watchlist, disabled mails or something like that. So I ask you to please disable edits on articles for that person until they finally notice something and stop these edits until the discussion is done (or ideally just stop completely, but that's just my opinion). Fabian42 (talk) 19:18, 11 April 2020 (UTC)

You seem to be operating on the false principle that not replying to something automatically means that said thing hasn't been acknowledged at all. I also hadn't changed a single page back to the Occurrence layout since you posted on my talk page, so the fact that you've just immediately jumped from a talk page post to advocating for a full-out block is outright excessive and a borderline Rule #3 violation. Your assertion on an Occurrence section being nonsensical and arbitrary is also itself nonsensical, and there had been no opposition to the inclusion of the section whatsoever since my reply on the talk page five months ago, and nobody has opposed the subsequent inclusion of it on articles except for yourself. Please at least read into and participate in the relevant conversations before advocating for a user to have their editing rights revoked simply because you don't like the changes that they make. - User-12316399 (talk) 17:40, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
I agree that it was irresponsible to go about these mass changes without a consensus. You can't just ignore valid opposition just because you personally disagree with it and then say that because a few people supported it on Discord it can be added to the style guide. However, he hasn't made any further changes regarding this topic since you warned him on his talk page so I doubt a block would be necessary at this point. I've reverted the changes made to the style guide without consensus, but I'm not sure what to do with the actual pages themselves; should we take the time to revert each one or wait some more to see how the discussion plays out?--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 19:08, 13 April 2020 (UTC)
Bit of an older discussion, I know, but it's worth noting that both the Occurrence section and the loot table template have been decided against and should be removed. -PancakeIdentity (talk) 02:26, 8 May 2020 (UTC)

No spawn egg[edit]

Yo. In File:20w06a Additions.png, the hoglin spawn egg is gone while the Java Edition 20w06a page still mentions the spawn egg below that image. What is that all about? 200.25.61.8 10:30, 12 April 2020 (UTC)

Just seems like it has been forgotten about. It was seen in an earlier version of the file though. ---- Elite hog (talk) 13:45, 12 April 2020 (UTC)

Zombie Piglin[edit]

The zombie piglin is a new mob, coming out in java 1.16, but there is no page on it, while there is a page on piglin, hoglin, and zombie hoglin.–Preceding unsigned comment was added by 66.231.194.155 (talk) at 18:18, 13 April 2020 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

It's not a new mob, it's just a new model and name: Zombie Pigman. The page will be renamed once 1.16 is released. FVbico (talk) 17:32, 13 April 2020 (UTC)
(edit conflict) We generally use page titles that comply with the current version, rather than the development version, so we do have such a page, it's just located at Zombie Pigman. We also have zombified piglin redirecting to it, which is the new name of the mob in 1.16. However, for some reason zombie piglin is not a redirect even though it's a likely search term, so I'll create that right now.

Lodestone Article Duplicate Information[edit]

I noticed on this article that the breaking and block loot sections have exactly the same text. However, I cannot change the text because I'm not an admin.

Can someone fix that for me? Plaba123 (talk) 01:21, 17 April 2020 (UTC)

You don't need to be an admin to edit Lodestone, the page is not protected at all. Also, I saw kind of an incosistency across some block pages in terms of the style, so Lodestone is not the only page listing such info double. ---- Elite hog (talk) 13:35, 17 April 2020 (UTC)
I've removed the duplicate section, thanks for reporting. There was a proposal to rearrange the obtaining and usage sections in a different way, which included changing the layout of the breaking section. Although this received very little support, this was carried out anyways, although I don't quite understand why it would cause the creation of two breaking sections. See this for more detail.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 13:47, 17 April 2020 (UTC)
Also, Plaba123, the reason you were not able to remove the section is because you were caught in an abuse filter. Filters are designed to prevent vandalism, but occasionally run into false positives like your edit. Since you're a registered user, once you've made a few more edits you should be able to bypass most filters.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 13:49, 17 April 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! I'll keep editing! Plaba123 (talk) 23:57, 17 April 2020 (UTC)

Request ban User-12316399[edit]

This user not only makes a lot of useless contributions for a long time, but also arbitrarily changes the format of an item, adds a bloated loot table, and affects the editing habits of wiki. I personally say I can't stand his behavior and suggest that it be banned. --HlDorəmonWf(TAlK · C0NTR1BZ) 13:38, 17 April 2020 (UTC)

While there have indeed been a few times in the past where I've considered a short block on him to prevent disruption, I personally don't think a block would be necessary at this point. AFAIK the only unconstructive edits he's been warned recently about are changing the structure of the obtaining and usage sections of feature pages (to add the "bloated loot table" you say) and the style guide accordingly when there's a consensus against doing so, and "bitey" edit summaries and discussion posts (i.e. being rude / borderline attacking another editor for no reason). Both of these things I haven't seen him do at all since he's been warned, so I don't think we need to escalate to a block yet, especially given how most of his tedious maintenance edits are indeed productive.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 13:56, 17 April 2020 (UTC)
On the other hand, looking at this, rude edit summaries appear to still be a problem. A new user who had never edited before made a good faith edit to an article which they thought was constructive, but because it was false, he reverts them just a few minutes later with a very sarcastic and bitey summary. Like I've said he's been warned many times about this in the past, so I'm not sure the best way to control this without a block. It's not just about blatant personal attacks; it's also about just generally sarcastic or rude edit summaries that are directed at specific editors making this an unpleasant environment, especially when it involves new editors like here.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 14:02, 17 April 2020 (UTC)
How about delete User-12316399's mean edit summaries? 195.181.167.195 03:18, 19 April 2020 (UTC)
An edit summary being "mean" alone isn't a valid reason to use revision delete, but I have already deleted the ones that are actually personal attacks (which to be fair most of them haven't been pure attacks, but rather rude, sarcastic, and bitey summaries, which although are concerning, especially against newer good faith editors, not a valid reason to hide the summary completely).--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 14:13, 19 April 2020 (UTC)
Bit of an older discussion, I know, but it's worth noting that both the Occurrence section and the loot table template have been decided against and should be removed. -PancakeIdentity (talk) 02:26, 8 May 2020 (UTC)

I want to make my player in java edition smaller with no mods.[edit]

Please make a tutorial on how to make player models in java edition smaller without mods. I mean by editing the game source code for singleplayer only. --Linkplayzgames1 (talk) 20:58, 18 April 2020 (UTC)Linkplayz

Not possible. FVbico (talk) 21:35, 18 April 2020 (UTC)

Not being allowed to edit/add links[edit]

I was editing the 1.16 Java Edition page, then when i was finished, it wouldn't let me update link for other 1.16 updates to another fandom! Please fix this, and you dont have to rewrite it because i have it copied in my clipboard--165.225.9.23 16:24, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

Generally, we don't link to other Minecraft wikis. The BlobsPaper JE2 BE2.png 16:47, 21 April 2020 (UTC)
What you added is very unlikely to be accurate; you can't use other wikis as a source as they are often unreliable. If you're going to make so bold of a claim as 1.16 "includes other updates that had been released in early April" (which I don't understand what that means; I've never heard of anything being released in early April and even if that were the case how is that related to the upcoming 1.16 version?), you'll need an official Mojang source. Regarding not being allowed to add the links, your edits were caught in a filter designed to prevent vandalism/spam but occasionally runs into false positives. We can't disable filters for specific people; however, we can perform the edits for you if they're productive. Also, if you create an account and make a few edits with that, you should be able to bypass most filters. Thanks, --Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 18:10, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

Redirect for Programmer Art?[edit]

Should there be a redirect from Programmer Art to the corresponding page? I don't know how to make one or where it would go to, but I think it would make sense. Thank you. 67.169.100.106 15:53, 23 April 2020 (UTC)

There's not currently any page related to the definition I know of Programmer Art (which is basically sketches of a program a programmer creates to test functionality but not to perfect in any way) and since it's not necessarily Minecraft-specific nor particularly important to Minecraft I doubt there would be a need to create one.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 15:58, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
I mean the pre-Texture Update resource pack, bundled with every version since that update. 67.169.100.106 16:08, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
Well, the Texture Update page lists all the old textures as well. Is Programmer Art the official name of the textures before the update or at least a common alternate name? I don't think it would be, but I could certainly be wrong.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 16:11, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
Check the resource pack menu in 1.14 and newer. It shows "Default" and "Programmer Art", which is described as "The classic look of Minecraft". 67.169.100.106 16:15, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
I see, thanks. I probably should've done my research before making assumptions. :D
We don't have a page specifically for the old textures or resource pack, but since it's mentioned in Texture Update I've gone ahead and redirected it there, as well as the "Classic Textures" that it's called in Bedrock Edition. The redirects could be a bit confusing considering the texture update is actually their exact opposite, but of all the pages we have it's probably the most appropiate page to redirect it to (and I don't see a reason to split the old textures into their own page).--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 16:21, 23 April 2020 (UTC)

Thank you. 67.169.100.106 16:42, 23 April 2020 (UTC)

"Programmer art" should be redirected too 192.119.160.214 12:47, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

Are schematics not rendering correctly?[edit]

Trying to view a page that uses schematics (https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Help:Schematic, https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/index.php?title=Mechanics/Redstone/Memory_circuit) the schematics are mostly empty, except for text (https://imgur.com/a/SZJovpZ). I wonder if it is the uncaught exception: Object error in the console. I've tested this in Chrome / Firefox / Edge Classic / IE on Windows 10, and tried disabling uBlock and my pihole.

Seems as of March 15 it was working (https://web.archive.org/web/20200315040615/https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Help:Schematic), there is no object error in the console when I load archive.org's version.

Coral Fans redlink[edit]

Please fix the redlink by recreating the redirect Coral Fans to Coral fans. 49.228.176.243 09:55, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

There is no reason for such a redirect to exist, since the Coral Fan page will just appear as you start typing Coral Fans. Honestly, I am not sure why we have the Coral fans redirect. The BlobsPaper JE2 BE2.png 15:51, 15 May 2020 (UTC)
Well, the search suggestions take a minute to show up, so it's not true that they will appear immediately when you start typing Coral Fans. The redirect also useful for linking; it's impractical to go through every single edit made by anyone to make sure they use the format [[Coral fan]]s instead of [[Coral fans]] (and for all other items with potential plural forms). Furthermore, redirects are absolutely harmless; they take up barely any space and they don't clutter the search bar because the "actual main page" takes priority when searching, making any redirects to that page that are in a similar format not show up at all. In addition, the current style guide allows any alternate capitalization or form, meaning that both Coral Fans and Coral fans would be valid redirects. Citing existing rules/guidelines as I did isn't a reason for supporting/opposing a proposal, but that's not the purpose of this particular discussion.
The redirect was actually created as Coral Fans initially, but moved to Coral fans (which is not an appropriate way of deleting or creating redirects, as it makes the edit histories confusing).--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 16:26, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

Gravatar machine (still) broke.[edit]

This is getting pretty frustrating. I've been a contributor to this wiki for a while, and my profile picture is still the default icon, which I believe gives off an impression of "noobishness" when viewing my profile. I've had my Gravatar correctly linked for a very long time. Any help with this would be fantastic. --Invicon Command Block.gif DigiDuncan! (talk) 20:06, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

I asked staff about this; they say to make sure that your avatar is rated G? I presume otherwise it won't show up correctly--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 14:30, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

Sprites[edit]

How do you add a sprite? Minecraftexpert123 (talk) 14:44, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

Go to the sprite template in question (such as Template:InvSprite) and click "Edit sprite", right next to the normal edit button. All the sprites are organized into categories below; you can add one by clicking "New image" in the sprite-editing toolbar. When you're done, click save. It's a pretty simple and user-friendly way to update both the image and the module as needed at the same time.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 14:47, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
Ok, but how do you create an image? Minecraftexpert123 (talk) 15:54, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
The icon can be found in the game files. Use an image editor to add it to the sprite sheet image.–Preceding unsigned comment was added by Blobs2 (talkcontribs) at 16:42, 20 May 2020 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~
No i mean how do you create a new sprite image? Minecraftexpert123 (talk) 16:54, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
Do you mean add an icon for a specific sprite? If so, we've already answered that; just edit the sprite and click "New image" and Blobs explained how you create the image itself to begin with. If you're talking about a whole new sprite sheet, I'm not sure exactly why we'd need one. Please elaborate on what you mean by "new sprite image", as what I thought you meant by that doesn't seem to be what you're referring to.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 16:59, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
I mean create a new sprite (one that doesnt exist,like the sprite for non-renewable resources in enviroment.)Minecraftexpert123 (talk) 17:11, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
Again, you download the sprite sheet you want to expand, and add the sprite using an image editor. Once you have the new sprite sheet, upload it as a new version of the file. The BlobsPaper JE2 BE2.png 19:44, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

Can you give a small tutorial on how to do so? Minecraftexpert123 (talk) 21:47, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

Go to the sprite sheet you want to edit, for example {{BlockSprite}}. Click "Edit Sprite". Click "New Image". Upload a 16x16 image. I do not know what else to say, it really is that simple. KnightMiner · (t) 21:35, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

Post Made Whilst Not Logged In[edit]

I made an edit to the wiki page for the lava bucket and I forgot to sign up for an account before doing so. Would it be possible to assign this to my account so that I an avoid exposing my public ip? Natsuissleepy (talk) 05:23, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

I'm not sure; you should contact staff either way as admins definitely have limited ability to help you. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 11:02, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
