Corrupted. Also, why is the error report in Japanese? --GreenStone (0x54; 0x43) 16:55, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

 Fixed, no idea why the message was in Japanese; the page the text is taken from hasn't been changed. -- Orthotope talk 19:34, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
It was showing Japanese for anyone logged in and the normal article (not the corruption message) for anyone not logged in. --GreenStone (0x54; 0x43) 19:40, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Data values

When I went to go see the changes to the Data values page when

<Miney> Minecraft Wiki Data values ! http://www.minecraftwiki.net/index.php?diff=499446&oldid=499427&rcid=604459 * * (+20) /* Block IDs */

on IRC, it displayed that the page has been corrupted, and it is. While the page still loads normally, it is impossible to edit and displays the error message once again.

Entity list box

I noticed that on some pages that it shows the Wither Jockey in the unused mob category, but in others it isn't, and for some pages the Red Dragon and Fish links have icons (i.e. Creeper link's is a Creeper's face) but no other page does 11:27, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

He has made Bears, Jellyfish, and Snakes, and they should not be here. When I put a delete tag on Snakes, he reverted me. Snakes is still there. hotdogPi-t--c--Try my quiz! Do not click! 22:09, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

My username

Is it possible to change the first letter of my username to lowercase? If not can you set it to RCMaehl. It's my name, I'd rather it be either, preferably, all lowercase or correctly capitalized.

Thanks Rcmaehl 18:24, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

Only bureaucrats and Curse staff are able to change usernames; you may have to contact one of them directly as they haven't been particularly active lately. -- Orthotope talk 20:52, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

Servidores españoles de Minecraft

If you look here you can see that for the last few hours I've been in battle with someone who thinks they can replace all the servers on the Spanish server list with their own as well as use a banner against regulation. The user is Ander2300. He also used offensive langange in my Spanish userpage Rcmaehl.es viewable in the userpage history log. Please take administrative actions as soon as possible.

Thanks Rcmaehl 18:30, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

All the language wikis are administered separately; the admins here generally don't have elevated privileges elsewhere. The Spanish wiki should have an admin noticeboard of its own. -- Orthotope talk 20:52, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

Allow me to edit legendcraft

Hello! A friend of mine created a page here for my custom minecraft classic software. However, he has gone inactive and I am unable to fully edit the page to LegendCraft. If I could be allowed full rights to edit the page, it would be great. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by LeChosenOne (talkcontribs) 19:52, 22 June 2013‎ (UTC).

Trying to add my client mod ( Minecapes.net ) to the client mod list @ /Mods/Aesthetic

I got a message from the filter that I'm not able to add my mod because of the found link in the addition. So I think I need to file a request here for being able to edit this table?!

You are automatically allowed to add links once you have made 10 other edits. I have added your entry though, as well as included the forum topic link. Kanegasi C 09:01, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
Good to know and thanks a lot! I've now made some other small (hopefully useful) edits, so I may have those 10 posts in some time ;-) DerFlash 09:05, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Malzzz (talkcontribslogsblock log), Anvil page

He has repeatedly re-added large paragraph with header, and image, about the Dinnerbone easter-egg, even after I added a note about the effect under trivia, and reverted his previous edit with a comment to that effect. Looking at his contributions, it seems that all his edits are about that easter egg. --Mental Mouse 19:42, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

He's a new editor, so it's possible he doesn't realize someone is reverting his edits. Assume good faith and talk to him first. If after that he still persists, then you can request a block. — Hower64 01:53, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
Oh, I don't assume that a report will produce a block. It does put their behavior on record, and having an admin back up the reversion (as Orthotope did) or scold them (as in other cases), has more authority. I note that Orthotope's reversion seems to have stuck so far. But yeah, I probably should have gone to their talk page first. (ETA: On the other hand, he did know enough to call it an easter egg, which makes me think he'd been reading the wiki for a while). --Mental Mouse 10:07, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

An automated filter has detected that you are attempting to remove a section of this page...

I am testing the wiki formating using my userpage but always get the error above.
Is there a way to allow 'new' users to fully edit their userpage? --Deep Thought 42 10:37, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

I adjusted the filter in question; it shouldn't get in your way anymore. The restrictions on new users are removed once you make a few more edits anyway. -- Orthotope talk 12:04, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

Glitchy text on advertising space on the main page

Similar things happen in the minecraft launcher and on the forums ads. Any idea what it is? Pokechu22 16:19, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

What browser do you use? Most likely it could be incorrect browser encoding. Try setting your browser encoding to UTF-8 (or auto detect in Chrome and Firefox) and reload the page. t numbermaniac c 01:06, 13 July 2013 (UTC)
Internet explorer. However, it doesn't always happen. Oh, and my encoding is on UTF-8. My geuss is that someone messed up on a advertisement.
Also, I just had it happen on youtube. The text is different, that may be important. Pokechu22 01:16, 13 July 2013 (UTC)
Puzzling. I was not expecting that.t numbermaniac c 01:17, 13 July 2013 (UTC)
Since it's happening on several unrelated websites, it's probably an issue with your computer. Try running scans for viruses and other malware, see if that turns up anything. -- Orthotope talk 01:47, 13 July 2013 (UTC)
Haven't done that yet. However, I remember reading a post on the forums about someone else getting that happening.
When it happens, on the wiki main page, internet explorer seems to sometimes lock up. (Likely from all the glitchtext). Pokechu22 04:04, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
No virus detected after a full scan. That took a while. It may be a problem with my network. However, it sometimes freezes the page. (No idea what exactly would do that, but its annoying). Any other potential things I can try? Pokechu22 18:03, 21 July 2013 (UTC)
Internet Explorer has earned a reputation for not being great. I wonder if the same happens in Firefox or Chrome..? Never happened for me. t numbermaniac c 22:02, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

Metropolis is getting disorganized again.

The Tutorials/Building a metropolis has a section titled urban zone that is very disorderly. Numerous people have complained and attemped to fix it, but were stopped by Meeples10 and Creepergoboom64.
