I am making a page on command bits-Blocked???[edit]

I was blocked for creating a bits page to aid others in commands. The one I was currently making was about the "HideFlags" bit for the display tag. I hit save to save my work for the day and it said this: (An automated filter has detected that you are attempting to create a possibly unwanted page. As a new user, your action has been disallowed. If you believe your edit was constructive, please post a message on the admin noticeboard or notify an admin directly.) The text I put down only had a few bits on it: 1-8, 16 and 32. Luigirox901 (talk) 07:08, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

There really isn't enough content there to justify making a separate page for it. -- Orthotopetalk 21:01, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

1.7.7 released[edit]

Please update Template:Version to 1.7.7, as a new client update was released today (April 9, 2014). EthanCentaurai (talk) 15:56, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Done. -- Orthotopetalk 17:57, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
Thank you! :) EthanCentaurai (talk) 18:00, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Someone asked me to get rid part of a page because he was a new user he was not allowed me too just to let you know 96.49.236.201 01:31, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Updates to Template:Version[edit]

The links of the Playstation 3 and Xbox edition links need to both link to the Console Edition version history pages. Also, the Xbox version is now 1.6.1 (TU seems to be used interchangeably between both Playstation and Xbox360 editions) and the Playstation 3 version is now 1.05. GoandgooTalk

Accidentaly added data values to potions[edit]

due to a stupid mistake I added "data values" to http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Potions. and now i don't have permissions to remove it.

Section removed. (I am not an admin here) --GreenStone (talk) 21:06, 12 April 2014 (UTC)

Accidentaly added data values to spawn eggs aswell[edit]

I'm sorry, I didn't see the data values already were on the spawn eggs page. (http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Spawn_Egg#Data_values) could someone please remove the Data values part I added. Again I'm sorry I made the same mistake 2 times in a row now.

Can edit an existing page, but not create a page[edit]

I've been trying to create a wiki page for my Minecraft server (it has recently gone public), but I cannot create the page because of the automated filter. I edited a page (resource pack page), and I could edit that perfectly, but I can't create my own

--Mrmappy (talk) 07:15, 16 April 2014 (UTC)Mrmappy

As per wiki rules #10 and #11, we don't allow articles about specific servers or members of the fan community. -- Orthotopetalk 07:30, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
The page isn't even supposed to be advertising, plus it will have information about the team, plus it isn't a fan community either

Mrmappy (talk) 07:34, 16 April 2014 (UTC)Mrmappy

How the page is written doesn't matter; the mere existence of an article is a promotion, so we don't allow them under any circumstances. -- Orthotopetalk 07:59, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Spelling Error[edit]

Hello, my name is Jeff, and this is one of the first times I had ever used a forum, so I am still somewhat new at this, so forgive me if I am making a post in the wrong forum. But anyways, I would just like to let the admins know about a small spelling error at the bottom of a page that bugged me. http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/File:Updated_Potions_Craft_guide.png It says "certon" instead of certain. I tried to edit it, but I am still relatively new to using the internet, because I have been living under a rock for so long, so I couldn't figure out how to get the edit thing to work. So I am just letting you guys know. Thanks! –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Zaatharos (talkcontribs) 19:31, 18 April 2014 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Too long protection[edit]

I discovered the talk page for the minecraft wiki Adminastraters is protected from creation until 8641, a time very long from now. I suggest that it should be indefinite instead. 98.244.145.237 21:43, 21 April 2014 (UTC) that's funny, but I don't think that should be changed. ----

add the name roofed-oak-sapling on the blocksprites page[edit]

could someone add the official name of the dark oak sapling here: http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Template:BlockSprite –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Reijerzzz (talkcontribs) 07:18, 23 April 2014‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

The official name is dark oak. MattTalk

I'm not sure how to comment here, so I just edited this in.
Can Resource packs change item names? because with resource pack it says Roofed oak, and without it says dark oak.
anyways, I'm sorry for the mess I've made :P –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Reijerzzz (talkcontribs) ‎ 07:29, 23 April 2014‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

script error in blocksprite template[edit]

When I scroll down to the Full List on this page: http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Template:BlockSprite#Full_List it says: "Here is a full list of blocks: Script error". When I click on Script error, it says "Lua error: Internal error: The interpreter exited with status 152." –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Reijerzzz (talkcontribs) 10:11, 23 April 2014‎ (UTC).

Looks fine to me. MattTalk

It's working properly again Reijerzzz (talk)
And the error is back again :( Reijerzzz (talk)
Works for me when looking at the doc page itself, but not when it's transcluded onto the template page. Are we hitting some kind of template usage or memory limit? -- Orthotopetalk 17:34, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
The script is right on the edge of the 7 second lua time usage limit. The problem is that I am manually splitting up and reading the lines of the IDs page, because I want to display the IDs in the order in which they are defined and use lua comments to define the headers. Lua tables have a completely arbitrary order, so it isn't possible to load it as a table (which is almost instantaneous). The splitting itself takes about 6 seconds (average of 0.1 seconds per line, in a 622 line file), the rest of the script takes about half a second. The only solution to this is to have another table which keeps the order the IDs should be read, however that would require manually updating that to keep it in sync with changes to the ID file, which this automatic documentation is trying to completely avoid. I do have solution to this, but I need to find the time to finish developing it. MattTalk

wooden slabs missing from blocksprite template[edit]

all wood slabs except for oak wood are missing from the BlockSprite template (http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Template:BlockSprite) Reijerzzz (talk)

Sprites are added as needed, and thus far there is no need for each individual wooden slab, especially with the any wooden slab. --KnightMiner (talk|contribs) 14:22, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
I just created the Data Values part of Slabs but i couldn't add sprites for the different types of wood slabs, so I had to use the sprites of the full blocks. Reijerzzz (talk)

Trying to add server to server list[edit]

I would like to add my server information to the server list, but getting error that it's already listed (screenshot) not sure how to resolve this. Obviously the listed server is not mine. FlightTime (open channel) 00:00, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

The wiki doesn't have anything to do with Curse's server lists. Try contacting them directly using the form at http://support.curse.com/anonymous_requests/new . -- Orthotopetalk 00:02, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
My apologies. Thank you. FlightTime (open channel) 02:29, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

A Pocket Edition development versions in Template:V?[edit]

It will be useful if we can show the newest development versions by Template:Versions. Pocket Edition version history/Development versions

a20001017留言 13:24, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Using the snap= feature (used to display snapshot versions along side full updates) works for Pocket Edition development versions as well. The only problem is that they don't link to the right page at the moment, hopefully one of the admins who knows how to edit the template can add this feature. GoandgooTalk

Attempted cleanup of Tutorials/Obsidian farming was blocked[edit]

I attempted to clean up Tutorials/Obsidian farming to remove the excessive detail of various specific implementations of "put lava source blocks in a mold and pour water on it" and repetition of "how to explore a cave" and "how to survive the Nether", but an edit filter blocked me for removing too much cruft. Please review User:Anomie x/Obsidian farming. Thanks. Anomie x (talk) 22:04, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

It isn't possible to override the filter for specific users. The easiest solution would be to make your changes in several smaller edits, rather than one big one. Once you've made a few more edits, most of the filters will no longer apply to you as well. -- Orthotopetalk 02:52, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

I can't remove the "red dragon" from uninplemented features[edit]

Due to 1.8, they now exist, and since I'm a new user, could you do it for me? 96.3.49.28 00:25, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Why should it be removed? They aren't in 1.8, so they're still unimplemented. -- Orthotopetalk 02:20, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Can't edit "Slime Block"[edit]

There's no need for a page about this, since there's so little to say about it. We have almost no information aside from a couple of tweets, and Tommaso hasn't confirmed if it will actually be added or if it was just an experiment. -- Orthotopetalk 18:51, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
