MartyMcfly777 (talkcontribslogsblock log)

User:MartyMcfly777 vandalized several pages. I think it's all been undone now. Ban? Anyhow, thanks. --31stCenturyMatt 01:04, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Please ban him, he insulted France, my country, also the project I'm working on. Drenay 01:39, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Marvin and ItemslistV110.png

Marvin keeps putting a link to his site on the image, and while he did make the image, this is a wiki and not a place to advertise his site.

Has been warned, link removed, from both image and file page. -- Wynthyst 19px User talk:Wynthyst 02:15, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Cejj99 (talkcontribslogsblock log)

He is a spammer and has put sexually oriented text on this wiki. Drenay 03:01, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

Pengmunk (talkcontribslogsblock log)

Insists on posting an uninformative video on Rain despite a warning not to and multiple reversions. --Gnu32 22:26, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

Repeat incident; on his youtube comments it's quite clear he's trolling. --Gnu32 14:37, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

Iamtheman (talkcontribslogsblock log)

Vandalizes different pages by replacing all links with the same one to his youtube video or put the same link and a link to his subscribtion all over the place. (See his contributions, or the history of Crafting) --Flippeh 00:50, 25 January 2011 (UTC) (pardon, forgot to sign :)

He's been warned. -- Wynthyst 19px User talk:Wynthyst 00:54, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
I don't think a warning is appropriate, it's obvious he's only here to spam his link so there's no reason to let him continue. User:Ultradude25 (User talk:Ultradude25|Special:Contributions/Ultradude25) at 02:45, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Bots

TownJacquot5b9 (talkcontribslogsblock log) and JaroszMccuistionj64 (talkcontribslogsblock log)
Look like bots. Page deletions, bans, and maybe some checkuser action? --JonTheMon 13:48, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
Confirmed, TownJacquot5b9, JaroszMccuistionj64 and WhisenhuntMartirk1k are all sharing the same IP along with identical edits. Thrown a permanent block on them and I'm writing the BBC a mail if they have anything to do with this. Case closed.--Quatroking - MCWiki Administrator 20:03, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
I doubt it's actually them. Instead, you could add that website to MediaWiki:Spam-blacklist to keep them from continuing. --JonTheMon 21:10, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Bot account

I intend to use User:Gnu64 as a bot account for use with AutoWikiBrowser. I've created this account per suggestion and established its roles as per IRC discussion. Could an admin please mark it as a bot account? Cheers, --Gnu32 20:47, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

So is someone going to do something about this? I'd like to see this bot in action. –User:Ultradude25 (User:Ultradude25/t|User:Ultradude25/c) at 05:20, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
Bump, quite eager to do some mass categorization and reformat changes I have planned. --Gnu32 13:38, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Bot account

I've set up User:Overwatch AI to be my bot account. If a bureau could change set the permissions that'd be appreciated. –User:Ultradude25 (User:Ultradude25/t|User:Ultradude25/c) at 09:22, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

ICraft/Team

This double-redirect is edit-protected. Can an admin solve, please? (And there's probably no reason for it to be protected anymore, since it's just a redirect.) D0sboots 05:46, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Fixed and unprotected. –User:Ultradude25 (User:Ultradude25/t|User:Ultradude25/c) at 06:35, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Template:OS/switch

I'd like to add an icon for web-based applications, but the template mentioned above is also edit-protected, due to its inclusion in Custom servers/ICraft. --Barracuda 12:04, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Fixed. Be sure to put this in current issues not solved issues next time though. –User:Ultradude25 (User:Ultradude25/t|User:Ultradude25/c) at 12:41, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Neomaster95t (talkcontribslogsblock log)

User:Neomaster95t made this edit which changes the redeem-gift-code link, with a misleading edit summary. This is not just vandalism but presumably an attempt to steal gift codes (I haven't looked at the linked site). —KPReid 14:17, 16 March 2011 (UTC)

Kjahgskj,dhasd (talkcontribslogsblock log)

This person looks like a spammer, hence the random characters of his username. He has also made a spam edit to the Creeper page. Drenay 15:54, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

KillingToaster (talkcontribslogsblock log)

This person has blanked the List of administrators page. Drenay 17:56, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

Doctapee (talkcontribslogsblock log)

I notice him vandalizing the Creeper Page (calling them Cactus men and etc.) He also been vandalizing a couple other pages too. Please keep a close eye on him WiiMaster890 14:14, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

More Moderators Needed In Forums

As I browse throughout the forums everyday, looking at texture packs and mods and everything under mapping and modding... I still see flaming, cussing, advertising, and more or less abusive and/or offensive comments. I (Neko_Elethia), have been playing for some time now, maybe more than a year or so? I have broken no rules (I do believe I haven't, in any records), nor have I ever made abusive comments/posts towards anyone from what I do believe. I personally vote myself as a forum Moderator, not for any benefits, or something to hang over someones head, but to patrol the forums. Well I already do the patrolling, just I'm out and about with no "badge." If this recommendation isn't approved, then it will have no negative or positive affect on me, however it will become a large negative effect on the forums. This is PhusedGirl (Neko_Elethia in forums and ingame).

What exactly does the logo in the top-left corner say again?--Quatroking - MCWiki Administrator 21:43, 8 April 2011 (UTC)
This is Minecraft Wiki, not Minecraft Forums. So, if you're not going to contribute to the wiki or look up something, stay on the forums where you belong. Drenay 21:58, 8 April 2011 (UTC)
I've never used the forums until now :P so sorry for contributing and trying to support something, I didn't know admins could be... no Iprobably shouldn't say it even if it's true. :P PhusedGirl 03:32, 9 April 2011 (UTC)
Calm down everyone... PhusedGirl, this is an issue for the forums, not the wiki, but don't let the neandrathals scare you away. -- Wynthyst Image:User Wynthyst sig icon.png :en:User talk:Wynthyst 03:55, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

Template:Blast Resistance Values

This template only needs to be updated in the event new blocks are added or the values on existing blocks are changed - i.e., only when Minecraft updates are released. The rest of the time, the only edits the template gets are either vandalism or people who think Bedrock's value is infinity. I'm hesitant to ask for full protection, but semiprotection would definitely help some. User:Dinoguy1000Special:Contributions/Dinoguy1000? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 02:25, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

Granted. You will have to ask for it to be unprotected when it needs updates, or ask an admin to update it. -- Wynthyst Image:User Wynthyst sig icon.png :en:User talk:Wynthyst 02:58, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

Potential problem

I was looking into sugar cane, and was redirected to a page very closely resembling a Windows hardware scan showing five viruses, asking you to download some sort of virus scanner deal. I closed down the internet and it was gone. I tried to replicate this happening, and failed. Still, I thought this would be worth mentioning. --Latrans105 22:13, 4 April 2011

I don't see anything on the Sugar cane page that would cause anything like that. I would suggest you scan your computer with whatever anti-malware software you have available. -- Wynthyst Image:User Wynthyst sig icon.png :en:User talk:Wynthyst 02:16, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
I did, twice, with no results. I'll yell again if it grabs me. Thanks for the speed. --Latrans105 02:27, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

He made 2 wiki edits, both vandalizing the pages.

Solved.--Quatroking - MCWiki Administrator 23:27, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

Uploading photos

I have tried to upload a photo, but the wiki gives me an error message saying: "You do not have permission to do that, for the following reason: You do not have permission to create new pages." Do I need some sort of permission to upload images? Thanks! Fwyrl 22:19, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

You need to confirm your email. Calinou - talk × contribs » 19:27, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

I'm having the same problem, and I've long since confirmed my email. In fact, I've uploaded images before (back in December), but can't now.--Clankypants 01:32, 13 April 2011 (UTC)

I am also having the exact same problem and I have confirmed my Email too and I have also created new pages before but now it will not let me upload a photo, Is there anything we need to do to get permission???

Please check your user group memberships by going to your preferences page. Your usergroups should be listed. There is nothing that should be disallowinging registered users from uploading images. Creating new pages requires you to be a member of the Autoconfirmed usergroup. If you continue having these difficulties please contact me on my talk page and we will look into it on a case by case basis. -- Wynthyst Image:User Wynthyst sig icon.png :en:User talk:Wynthyst 23:18, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

Steve Co. Supply Crate

I've found a "Steve Co. Supply Crate" by wandering around (on the surface); I can't find anything listed in the wiki for it.

I suspect it's an easter egg (April Fools?!?); it leads the user to a webstore on minecraft.net, and when you try to checkout, there's an animation on a velociraptor sliding across the screen (with an appropriate sound effect).

My user talk page has some details & screenshot links, since I can neither create new pages nor add upload screenshots. Pariah Zero.

Vandals

Account001 (talkcontribslogsblock log) and Plemith (talkcontribslogsblock log) and Pezzzzani (talkcontribslogsblock log)

Both vandalism. I reverted the vandalism on Creeper page, someone did for Crafting. Calinou 19:23, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Uploading Images

I'm very sorry if this isn't the appropriate place for this, but I didn't see where it should go. My problem is that I can no longer upload images to the wiki, though I was able to maybe a week ago. I'm not sure if we changed the permissions or something in the mean time, but if this is the case, I would be grateful if someone could tell me how I can get/apply for more advanced permissions so I can continue to upload skins. Thank you. Aryst0krat 20:03, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Image regarding reeds

I have stumbled upon a floating reed in my map there isn't a block underneath it because i can place a block there.can someone show me what i should do so my picture gets on the reed page ? and the way you post things is really complex to all you admin's you should have like a "post here" or something like that.

Actually using the wiki is stupidly easy. It's only templates that can be difficult. YOU are the one that needs to look up how to use a wiki, all wikis are mostly the same in terms of basic functionality. Also, floating sugar cane is an old bug and it doesn't need an image. –User:Ultradude25 (User:Ultradude25/t|User:Ultradude25/c) at 23:48, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Header bars
