Broken User Page

My user page has gon beserk! Can you fix it? Link here: User:1234567890Number --1234567890Number 22:56, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

Fixed, sorry for the delay. -- Wynthyst Image:User Wynthyst sig icon.png :en:User talk:Wynthyst 20:11, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

No need to worry now: my user page has been fixed. --1234567890Number 00:44, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

The CSS is broken for me

I think you screwed up on the CSS a bit.

[1] (shows the 'glass panes' page with adblocker, and without adblocker in the second image in the album)

If you are wondering, I am using Google Chrome 22.0 (stable), windows XP, and the screen resolution is 1024x768. I tested this in firefox, too, and still had the problem. I haven't tried it in IE yet, due to my laziness vs the slowness of IE.

I will test this later on my higher resolution monitor (much), with windows 8, and chrome 23.0(dev channel).

I have no problem with this windows 7 crome 23.0 (dev channel) even with my badd connection -bluecraney

Tried to access "Issues" - was told to report problem here

The page is http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Known_bugs/Version_1.3.2. It won't load.

The error message is "Issues cannot be accessed. This is usually caused by a corruption in the latest version of the page and requires the page to be deleted and undeleted to fix it."

I'm running Mac OS X 10.7.5, Safari 6.0.1. No other problems.


  • I found two more bugs, went to the known bugs page to see if anyone else had reported them and received the same error message as above. If the page still isn't working tomorrow I will attempt to revert it to the previous revision. --KADC - "Be unreasonable." 03:41, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
  • Don't bother trying to revert - this sort of page corruption needs an admin to fix. -- Orthotope 04:10, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
  • I tried to "undo" the last revision and got the "conflicting edit" error just before your reply. If an admin is unable to fix the page, the redirect from "known bugs" to "issues" could be removed and the content pasted from the history in "issues" back to "known bugs" until the page is repaired. --KADC - "Be unreasonable." 04:33, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
This is an ongoing issue we are experiencing on highly edited, large pages. It can only be fixed by an admin (which it has been now). Please do not move/remove content to place elsewhere as it won't fix the problem, and will only mess up the page histories. If it happens again to this page, or if you find this error on any other page on the wiki, simply report it here, and it will be dealt with as quickly as there is an admin available to do so. Thanks! -- Wynthyst Image:User Wynthyst sig icon.png :en:User talk:Wynthyst 09:37, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
  • The issue with the issue page is back it seems. Pokechu22 23:19, 9 October 2012 (UTC)

Weekly issues 12w40a needs locking

Some people are still editing it, possibly thinking it's the latest weekly page. Pls. take out my temp warning header before lock. Tx. --Simons Mith[] 15:13, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

Issues pages are kept open since people still play them and find bugs. In this case, not much usually changes in lettered versions of the same weekly. Think of 12w30a-e. Just leave the old ones alone. --User:Kanegasi User_talk:KanegasiSpecial:Contributions/Kanegasi 16:48, 8 October 2012 (UTC)
That's funny, I thought they were usually locked. Never mind, then. Even more important that I corrected that misleading header, tho'.-- 16:55, 8 October 2012 (UTC)
Really old ones are locked, e.g. weeklies prior to 1.3.1, but anything a part of the next version's development is kept open until that major release. --User:Kanegasi User_talk:KanegasiSpecial:Contributions/Kanegasi 17:42, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

Wrongfully blocked: Martok (talkcontribslogsblock log)

This is me. I was blocked when I tried to set up my user page, probably too much of an information dump. I cannot contact any of you directly because even after multiple requests, I did not receive a confirmation email (the adress is valid and working, no spam issues either), so I can't use Special:E-Mail.

Needs to be deleted in order to move Paintings there. -- Orthotope 08:29, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

Why hasn't someone done this already? is there some kind of major discussion going on on whether to move it or not? Trigger hurt 15:35, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
Can't you just merge the 2 pages? TheEpicMinecraftersX
There is a revert war starting concerning these two pages. Request lock or deletion of Painting so a move can happen, since that's how this started is people trying to move incorrectly. --User:Kanegasi User_talk:KanegasiSpecial:Contributions/Kanegasi 01:46, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Malware notice

I cleaned out the two posts that were here, hopefully preventing further ones. An ad server utilized by the Curse network has been infected and already taken care of, but not before many browsing bots, including Google, detected the bad ads. More information can be found here and here and a news post on MMO-Champion (also a Curse site) briefly explains the problem. There is currently no harm in any Curse site and any warnings you may receive can be dismissed. --User:Kanegasi User_talk:KanegasiSpecial:Contributions/Kanegasi 18:35, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Do you know if the malware affects Macs? If so, any good antivirus/malware software for macs? 20:09, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

Ah, so we need an admin to do so. Well i guess i should have figured that out already, since it is on the admin noticeboard... try asking around some of the admins, see if they will do it. #trigger_hurt(I|T|C) 19:45, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
No? User:Minecraft5025 already added it a while ago. You only need to edit Template:Grid/Available images which contains the images. -- Hower64 11:32, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

Section removal wanted on Nether Portal

The "Fast Building" section of the Nether Portal page should probably be removed. It doesn't have good grammar or spelling, just reminds the player that covering lava sources with water makes obsidian rather than actually telling you how to make the portal, and the information it (tries) to give is already in the Trivia section. I tried deleting it, but the system stopped me automatically. Konork 01:39, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

Instead of deleting it, how about fixing it? Just change out the information it has with the information it's missing :D Once you have a few edits under your belt, the filter will stop disallowing you from removing it. -- Wynthyst Image:User Wynthyst sig icon.png :en:User talk:Wynthyst 01:43, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

Copy and paste

I use a Mac, and I can't copy and paste or cut and paste from one part of the edit box to another. This requires a change of the website. Can you please fix that? HotdogPi ⑬㊲ 01:51, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

"Measuring Distance" page probably shouldn't be a tutorial

The page Tutorials/Measuring Distance is not very big, but it's what you get if you search for Distance, and it does define some basic terms. However, it's not really a tutorial. Perhaps it should be moved to the main topic space, perhaps as Distance? --Mental Mouse 21:12, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

A ad and a error

Two things: There is a advertisement that is highly misleading for http://download-buildcraft-mod.com/ that is a adware thing, and also if you edit a sub user page (say User:pokechu22/Anvil/Doc, a page that will hopefully become a good anvil template but I am no good with HTML), it says "This is a user page. Generally, this page should only be created and edited by Pokechu22/Anvil. Please visit their talk page if you want to leave them a message.", but the correct username is pokechu22. Pokechu22 21:02, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

I've fixed the error with the user page edit notice. As for the ad thing, maybe Wynthyst could help you. -- Hower64 23:27, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
@pokechu22 You should consider getting Adblock, then you wouldn't need to worry about any ads. User:Trigger hurt(I|T|C) Check out my project! 23:31, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
I don't wish to get a adblock, but the ad can be really derpy, when it shows up on the official buildcraft website. Pokechu22 00:41, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

Crafting grids broken?

On Crafting/Items, several recipes are showing ? squares. The Bed is one of them, Magenta dye has them in rotation, there are others. I can't see what's wrong. ETA: And just why doesn't this page (Admin Noticeboard) have an "Add Topic" button? --Mental Mouse 22:13, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

Looks fine to me; possibly a cache issue? And this isn't technically a talk page, hence no 'add topic' button. -- Orthotope 23:39, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
An add topic button can easily be added, but we didn't because this page is the reverse of a talk page, new topics go at the top instead of the bottom and headings were originally h3 not h2, although everyone has ignored that apparently. ultradude25Talk
05:11, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
I'm seeing ? squares too: Lapis Lazuli Block (Minerals), Block of Emerald (Minerals), all non-white wool (Painting, Beds). In the grids for Light Gray Dye and Magenta Dye, some items will show as ? squares in one frame but not the other. oO —Munin295 · 16 px 16 px · 01:30, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
You probably have an old version of common.js cached. ultradude25Talk
05:07, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
I've tried bypassing my cache, and forcing a server reload with ?action=purge. Still getting ? squares. Any suggestions?
Interestingly, when I edit one section of the Crafting/Items page (e.g., Miscellaneous Recipes), everything works fine in the preview, but when I edit the whole page, it's broken. Maybe something in one of the earlier sections is screwing something up, or we've exceeded some maximum number of template uses? —Munin295 · 16 px 16 px · 05:54, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
The animations are done with JS, so template limits don't apply. It'd be helpful to know what page the broken images are linking to, and maybe check your console to see if there are any JS errors. ultradude25Talk
06:07, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
No JS errors, only CSS errors and warnings. Some links:
But when I edit just a section, the image links to the article as it should. And just in case: Mac OS X/10.6.8, in both Firefox 17.0.1 and Safari 5.1.7. —Munin295 · 16 px 16 px · 07:50, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
That's strange, it is linking to the redirect page, instead of the image the page is redirecting to.
I added some console logging, which should output the original names, and the redirected names, please post the result (by having the console open when you load the page). ultradude25Talk
08:07, 31 December 2012 (UTC)


Munin295 · 16 px 16 px · 08:56, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

Well it seems that Lapis Lazuli Block is the only one that should redirect and didn't... it also seems to be the first one in the list of redirects.
Still doesn't explain why the other two don't work, those are the original names...
Perhaps you can post the two API responses? If you use firebug, they should show up in the console with a grey background, open them up and go to the response tab. ultradude25Talk
10:55, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
Well, these warnings look promising:
Munin295 · 16 px 16 px · 16:29, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
Well that would explain why I wasn't seeing the errors, admins must have higher API limits. ultradude25Talk
16:40, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
Should be fixed now. ultradude25Talk
17:50, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
Confirmed fixed for me. Thanks! —Munin295 · 16 px 16 px · 19:43, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
