Multiple instances of vandalism (moved pages). Clipka 23:22, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

Someone should check Tutorials/Underground Home; it seems to have either been created by the vandal, lost in the process of undoing his changes, or screwed up for some other reason; it currently redirects to the non-existing page Tutorials/Underground (not) Clipka 00:01, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

It's there. Click on the vandal's move (Underground (not)) and then click on Underground in the delete message. It came back up for me after this. Refreshing the Underground page might help too. --Kanegasi C 00:47, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
Edit: Nevermind, I see the issue. It should be at Tutorials/Underground Home but instead ended up at Tutorials/Underground. An admin needs to delete the Home redirect in order to move the page back. --Kanegasi C 00:49, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

Data values

Data values is corrupted. Somebody500 (有人500) 21:53, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

Also noticed this issue. Trying to find data values for all the enchanted books, all links come back here and the page is corrupted. Please fix this! -MisterBuilder –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (Talk) 22:15, 3 January 2013‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Chain Armor

I know I brung this up before, but since nothing has changed; I thought that I would bring it up again. The page Chain Armor has repeatedly vandalized and I would suggest protecting the page from unregistered edits. Extreme 02:37, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Locked Chest

Corrupt. --Kanegasi C 21:36, 4 January 2013 (UTC)


Oliver Scholz accidentally deleted an end curly bracket on the weekly server version. --Kanegasi C 18:53, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

Fake image limitations?

It appears that fake images for simple diagrams are limited? Is there some way to fix this, or to automate screen-captures of them? Justender 00:25, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

Do you mean {{BlockGrid}}? That uses loops which are very restricted. You'd be better off doing them manually instead of using that template. ultradude25Talk

Messing up pages and I am unable to undo it.

I haven't been on in so long I forgot to sign it. XD Enderman.png| DoGgEy | Talk :D 15:42, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

Reverted. When vandalism happens over several edits, select the revisions using the history page, click "Compare revisions", and use the undo link in that diff page. --Kanegasi C 16:09, 14 January 2013 (UTC)

Page errors

posted january 18 on the Classic Data Values page it repeated claims that some of the thumbnails cannot be created, and the file seems to be missing. "http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Data_values_(Classic) "

Capture the flag suggestions page?

I just want to see if this is either a horrible idea and it should be killed with fire, or something to consider. Should there be a suggestions page for the planned feature of capture the flag? Rhou17 21:18, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

There is already a page. You can find it here. Also, for future reference, please read the informative description at the top of this page. What you posted here does not belong here and should've been posted at Minecraft Wiki talk:Community portal. This page is ONLY for topics which require admin intervention. --Kanegasi C 22:24, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

Server - Minecraft Wiki

On the server page someone has changed or added text for the "Roleplay" server type under Types of Servers to read:

Roleplay where u act as people and have sex with a hot gym teacher

Not sure what is supposed to be here instead.

Sometimes people change the text to be funny or offensive. If it hasn't been changed yet, go to "history", and click "undo" on the most recent one. You can do it yourself. HotdogPi ⑬㊲ 01:54, 20 January 2013 (UTC)

Unable to move protected video page

I recently moved Basic Logic Gates to Tutorials/Basic Logic Gates (due to redundancy with Redstone Circuits/Logic), but the video subpage could not be moved because it was protected. Nothing is actually broken, so not a high priority. —Munin295 · Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Stone Pickaxe.png · 17:27, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Done. -- Orthotope 19:51, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

An admin is really the only person who can comment on this issue, so that is why I posted it here (rather than the community portal)

When Quatroking introduced a new logo to the wiki in mid August 2012, Wynthyst initially rejected the logo, and on further discussion in the talk page on the edit copy, stated that it was too big. Then he stated that perhaps it could come back to the main page - Quote: "If you can make it no larger than the current box (including the text that goes with it), then maybe".

On further inspection, I have noticed that the new logo has sat on the edit copy of the main page for five months. As the logo has sat unedited there for quite a while too, it seems to fit the initial criteria.

I know this is definitely not a top priority (if it even is a priority at all), but will the logo ever return to the main wiki page as well as replace the original one? If it is not going to be implemented, then could an admin please explain their reasoning behind this move as well as why it remains on the editcopy of the homepage.
