IP-hopping vandalism on Ender Dragon

Lots of IPs making random deletions or insertions. Anomie x (talk) 12:47, 5 May 2016 (UTC)

Please be more specific; Are you asking for the page to be semi-protected, or do you want something else? The BlobsPaper.png 02:55, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
Majr figured it out a week ago without your help. I've seen you do this sort of thing several times now, Blobs2, and I think it would be best if you stop trying to tell everyone how to communicate "right". Anomie x (talk) 10:11, 11 May 2016 (UTC)

Observer block

On the 'Pocket edition alpha 0.15.0' page, people keep going on about observer blocks, although I'm pretty sure it won't be in 0.15.0.Someone even put a texture which is most likely fake. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Robinhoodn64 (talkcontribs) at 6:00, 10 May 2016 (UTC).

 Fixed as 0.15.0 was released long ago and the Observer block was part of the update. Of course, it was speculation then. Maethoredhel (talk) 01:00, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

Interwiki table request

Since Gamepedia PRO was introduced, Wikis are now able to use HTTPS instead of HTTP. But there's one issue: When clicking on an interwiki, it gives you the plain old HTTP-connection instead of the user-related HTTPS. My question: Can someone please remove in the interwiki table the http:-prefix for the other Minecraft Wiki-Wikis? (I've done it already for the Dutch Wiki) --DarkShadowTNT NL Admin (t ? c) 14:28, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

Related suggestion: Wikipedia also uses HTTPS, so the corresponding interwiki can be changed accordingly. — NickTheRed37 (issues’ wall) 14:57, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
Yep, there still are some resources (especially in CSS files) which are loaded using http links. For example, File:Background.png is loaded using an http link in MediaWiki:Common.css. | violine1101(Talk) 17:46, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
There are some unsafe connections left which can only be changed by Curse. Apart from these, the German Minecraft wiki is mostly HTTPS now by changing http to https in both MediaWiki:Common.css as well as MediaWiki:Hydra.css and Widget:FileUrl. | violine1101(Talk) 18:13, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
Ummm... @Violine1101: Not all the user are a PRO. Only users who are a PRO user can use an HTTPS connection. Users who aren't PRO still use HTTP. The best option is to let the browser decide by using, as example, //hydra-media.cursecdn.com/minecraft-de.gamepedia.com/9/90/Minecraft_Wiki_header.svg instead of http://hydra-media.cursecdn.com/minecraft-de.gamepedia.com/9/90/Minecraft_Wiki_header.svg and/or https://hydra-media.cursecdn.com/minecraft-de.gamepedia.com/9/90/Minecraft_Wiki_header.svg. --DarkShadowTNT NL Admin (t ? c) 19:00, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
Also non-PRO users can use the media server with HTTPS, so this should not be a problem at all.
I just realized I put that into the false topic, but hey, it's about PRO too. | violine1101(Talk) 20:28, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
Done; language interwikis now use protocol-relative URLs. Looking at the interwiki table, I'm wondering if a lot of them could be removed, as they don't seem to have any relevance or use here. -- Orthotopetalk 19:32, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
Fix ftb: and gphelp:, please ^_^ A lot of the URLs are just there per default, so some of them are kind of useless. They aren't really taking any space though. -Xbony2 (talk) 12:50, 26 June 2016 (UTC)

Often, on the order of every 15 to 25 pages, I am seeing the page fail with a backtrace, like the following:

Is anyone else experiencing this? – Sealbudsman talk/contr 15:55, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

I am experiencing this too. Is your edit summary intentionally specified as "<newsectionsummary>"? --AttemptToCallNil, previously known as GreenStone (report bug, view backtrace) 17:10, 20 May 2016 (UTC)
How ironic.. it wasn't intentional, because we don't have the option of entering a summary when we hit "Add Topic". It must have tried to pull the standard string, which would have been, I think, "Localization issues? new section", and failed. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 17:27, 20 May 2016 (UTC)
I got the placeholder text a few times last night, though it seems better recently. -- Orthotopetalk 21:09, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

Template:ID table outputs wrong names

It seems {{ID table}} just does a simple transformation on the item names, so it gives minecraft:wood_planks for "Wood Planks" and minecraft:magma_block for "Magma Block", for example, but those are not the correct names, they are minecraft:planks and minecraft:magma, respectively. The template needs to be changed to show the proper names instead of making such an assumption on the format of the names. nyuszika7h (talk) 16:05, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

There's a nameid parameter which does that:
Icon Dec Hex Name Block
25px 0 0 minecraft:planks Wood Planks
Magma Block.png 1 1 minecraft:magma Magma Block
Sealbudsman talk/contr 16:11, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
Oh, I see, the planks show up correctly on Data values/Block IDs, it's just the magma block that needs a fix, now I know how to fix it. I didn't notice that when editing the page. nyuszika7h (talk) 16:13, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck (talkcontribslogsblock log)

Don't need to say anything; just look at the username.. Block that user for indef --MarioProtIV (talk) 18:57, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

As it was previously said, by putting a request to block a user with unacceptable (e. g. offensive) username here, it is made more visible, which is not good. There is another user with a similar unacceptable name (with a repeated vowel), but I don’t want to fully tell it because of that reason (administrators can just look up the user registration log anyway). An IRC-or-otherwise channel for non-public administrative issues would be great for this, but either way anyone can contact an administrator by e-mail.
That particular user is already blocked by Orthotope. Why do administrators not reply to topics about issues which were resolved? This makes it look at first glance like these issues aren’t still solved. — NickTheRed37 (issues’ wall) 13:07, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

Do you, MinecraftAdministrator101, agree or do not, it is not our matter in the end. Also, the same issue applies to the username of yourself: it appears to be misleading.

Rumors of 0.16.0

This would be better to have put this on the Community portal. But anyway, this is a hoax, 99% sure. One of those pictures is of the Desktop version, one is just an Igloo someone made, one looks like a youtube thumbnail, and the last one is also a screenshot from the Desktop version.

06:50, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
I've noticed this. :/ To clarify my previous comment, is it possible for Curse to modify the abuse filter so that it also applies to profile edits? If that's not an option, I'd be inclined to disable profiles entirely – I rarely see them used for anything other than spam. -- Orthotopetalk 06:59, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
There's no obvious hooks to allow custom actions to be added, so the extension itself would have to be modified. Doubt Curse wants to maintain their own fork of AbuseFilter and SpamBlacklist, just for the unnecessary profiles feature. Majr ? Talk

Czech wiki

I think it's time a proper Czech language wiki is set up, at minecraft-cs.gamepedia.com (maybe with minecraft-cz.gamepedia.com as a redirect- the correct code is actually cs, but many people use cz because that's the code [ISO 3166 and Internet TLD] used to refer to the Czech Republic). There's a very sufficient amount of pages- 427 of them, and that will only grow with time and newfound visibility. One user, Rechris (talkcontribslogs), has been active translating pages for about a month, and has been around doing translation for much longer, so I think they would make a fine administrator for the project. There's one major issue, though- the main page isn't translated. I'd like to request Rechris to translate it, if he/she/they doesn't mind :) -Xbony2 (talk) 21:38, 1 August 2016 (UTC)

Hello, It would be pleasure to translate it to our language, but there are problems. I don´t know about anyone, who can help with translation, but would probably someone found, and the second problem is, that I don´t know, how to make our main page. So if you help or advice, please? :) - Rechris (talk)
I made the proper subpages for it for you, so that should fix that. Don't worry too much about other translators; they'll come. -Xbony2 (talk) 11:03, 3 August 2016 (UTC)
Thank You :) It will be progressively translated. But I still have one more question: It is still necessary to write extension /cz behind references in the article? Or We have to set up a page with Czech title? For example: New page Compass/cz or Kompas? - Rechris (talk)
On the new wiki, you'll want to want to have Czech titles. And you'll want to move the currently existing articles, like Compass/cz -> Kompas. I (and maybe others) will probably try to help you with this. Eventually, when all of the links are correct, you'll want to start deleting the redirects (like Compass/cz). -Xbony2 (talk) 19:37, 4 August 2016 (UTC)
Rechris- I think you just need to translate the words "About Minecraft" and "Version history", and it should all be good ^^ -Xbony2 (talk) 11:57, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

Remove redirects and translated pages from the search bar

Honestly, I find this looks way too confusing. We have pages for foreign language translations, and redirects for simple capitalization differences, crowding out actual pages.

Is there a way to hide these? It seems like it might be a bit confusing for newcomers. - MinecraftPhotos4U (talk) 11:46, 5 August 2016 (UTC)

Don't believe so. However, we could probably get rid of all those old redirects. We haven't used those titles for years, so there's probably not many external links to them still. Majr ? Talk

Getting rid of a lot of redirects (or rather, tagging them for deletion). I might create a new section for this in the community portal. - MinecraftPhotos4U (talk) 16:23, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
Woah, ok, well I meant the sort of titles like in that picture, useless redirects from old page names that we haven't used for ages (and were never useful names to begin with), but I suppose we could be a bit more aggressive with removing unnecessary redirects...

Wiki advertisements causing page load issues

Hello Admins. There's a pretty glaring issue with browsing this wiki for me, whether I'm logged in or not. In the background, things are being loaded practically all the time. After a while of having a page loaded, it becomes almost impossible to navigate the page because of framerate issues, caused by these things loading in the background. Things never cease to be loaded it seems, even after 5 minutes of being on the page. I'm running Chrome on Windows 10 on a gaming PC with respectable specs from 2013, and my internet is a fairly standard 1.5 MB/sec connection. I've tested this with AdBlock on, and it seems to be fine, however I don't like using it.

Here are some screenshots of Chrome's Network tab from the Inspector.

This is probably beyond your abilities, in which case please escalate it to Curse or whoever because it's quite annoying and makes browsing almost impossible. If this is just an issue on my end, sorry! Any advice would be helpful.

Cheers

Account Problems

I suspect that the problem is due to enforcement of U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (specifically deleting accounts registered by children under the age of 13), of which I myself once became a victim. Judging by the data on your user profile, you were already 13 when joining Minecraft Wiki; did you join any other Curse project beforehand? — NickTheRed37 (issues’ wall) 12:50, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
I was 13 when I registered the account - that much is true and if you guys can't delete the old profile that's fine - but the bigger problem right now lies within my user rights because as of now I can't even edit my own userpage due to certain filters.

Unable to create new pages in the Mods/Runecraft namespace

I'm trying to add information about the new runes in 3.0.x, but it tells me that "as a new user, [my] action has been disallowed" when I try to create a new page, and tells me to "please post a message on the admin noticeboard". So I'm doing that!

FroxicTog (talk) 12:56, 11 September 2016 (UTC)

There's no way to turn off the filters for individual users, but once you make a few more edits to existing pages, you'll no longer be considered a 'new user', so this restriction will be removed automatically. -- Orthotopetalk 17:17, 11 September 2016 (UTC)

Supposed sockpuppet of CreeperFan2015, seeing that the user replied to a comment on Orthotope's talk page regarding CreeperFan, and also creating a user profile for CreeperFan. -BDJP (t|c) 20:52, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

Majr, can you look into this, since you're the only admin with checkuser rights? -- Orthotopetalk 02:33, 21 September 2016 (UTC)
Different IP, but exact same user agent, probably a sockpuppet. They've also registered a number of other accounts: P145965716 (talkcontribslogsblock log), NDBLaurence (talkcontribslogsblock log), MarleneMusser (talkcontribslogsblock log), and MarceloMathes02 (talkcontribslogsblock log).

Can't edit profile

Hi, sorry if I posted this in the wrong spot, I'm a new user, but how come I cannot edit my own profile page? Cherryblossom000 (talk) 02:55, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

Randomly getting logged-out

I and MinecraftPhotos4U have been noticing in the past half-hour or hour or so, we've been getting logged out repeatedly. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 22:17, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

And my signature in the preview-box appears to be an IP, pretty often – Sealbudsman talk/contr 22:18, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

In my case I automatically get logged back in again. The first time I didn't and it asked me to merge my Curse account or something like that, so maybe my details are in the hands of someone less deserving now. Kind of worrying. - MinecraftPhotos4U (talk) 22:41, 29 September 2016 (UTC)
It just happened again (my watchlist is in an auto-refresh tab, and it presented me with a logged-out login screen, instead of that). And just like what MinecraftPhotos4U said, on the next refresh, I was logged in again. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 15:58, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

Doesn't seem to be happening anymore. - MinecraftPhotos4U (talk) 08:34, 4 October 2016 (UTC)

Okay, so I know this is pretty unrelated, but I've been getting a similar effect over at Wikia. So either this is something to do with MediaWiki itself or something much more sinister. - MinecraftPhotos4U (talk) 19:43, 6 October 2016 (UTC)
It was caused by some auth issues with some nodes during the PHP7 migration, it wasn't a client-side issue. Majr ? Talk

Can't create page

Hello, I tried to create a page about light gray dye/light gray wool, but after I spent an entire hour making sure I had correct information, a message popped up when I tried to post it that said, and I quote, " An automated filter has detected that you are attempting to create a possibly unwanted page." I believe this is not correct, because on the page about wool, it doesn't show anything about dye or go into detail about any certain wool color. Please change this, because I believe my edit to be constructive and laborious. Yes, I know that filters cannot be changed for specific people, but can an admin please create this page, if it is not to much to ask for. Tartigrade (talk) 18:41, 2 October 2016 (UTC)

There are already articles on dye and wool. The article you were trying to create would not be allowed by our style guide, as everything that was in it is already covered in existing, more complete articles. -- Orthotopetalk 20:01, 2 October 2016 (UTC)

Perhaps another range block is needed.

IPs that have been blocked before are in bold. There may be more than the ones shown here.

These IPs appear to have been vandalising, edit-warring, and making tons of unexplained or unneeded edits for the past three months (maybe longer, not sure).

As for evading blocks: multiple IPs has have been used for block-evading, but they appear to only do around one edit for every block that has been given on the others. -BDJP (t|c) 20:12, 5 October 2016 (UTC)

Unfortunately, those aren't the actual IP addresses. They seem to all be cloudflare addresses, so I'm assuming it's because Gamepedia uses cloudflare that those IPs come up. Even you have used a few of the IPs from the 172.68.0.0/16 range, blocking that range would in-turn block you. Majr ? Talk

Protecting the Undead page from IP edits

Due to constant vandalizing (see Minecraft_Wiki:Admin_noticeboard#Perhaps_another_range_block_is_needed.) on the Undead page, I'm requesting protection against IP edits. Skylinerw (talk) 13:16, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Can't edit page; says I'm trying to add a link when I'm not.

I'm trying to edit the Seed (level generation) page so that instead of saying 2^64 possible seeds, it says 2^48 in the technical section and removing the sentence about possible seeds in multiplayer. Whenever I try to do this, it says I can't because I'm inserting a link when I'm not. Can you make the edit for me? –Preceding unsigned comment was added by KittyCrafter156 (talkcontribs) at 1:57, 10 October 2016 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

As far as I can tell, the page is correct. If you enter the world seed yourself, any 64-bit value can be used. -- Orthotopetalk 06:35, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

I'm having this exact same issue, but with the Adventure Update page. Specifically, I'm trying to correct the "reception" section to more accurately reflect the actual complaints that players had. What's causing this glitch? 172.68.132.43 10:47, 31 December 2016 (UTC)

Broken File Upload

It seems like the file upload has been broken for a couple of days already (throughout multiple browsers). The following error appears whenever a picture (in this case a png) is uploaded (it does not seem like entering different values changes the outcome).

Exception encountered, of type "InvalidArgumentException"
[c54a27e4b91bec46186e3470] /Special:Upload InvalidArgumentException from line 246 of /home/hydra/stable_public_html/includes/Message.php: $key must be a string or an array

As far as I can tell from the MediaWiki code (as far as that still applies to this specific fork) this is related to some kind of upload error occurring somewhere along the line. So I'm not entirely sure as to whether the issue could be caused by the file itself (A copy of the image can be found on imgur).

Wyatt2050 (talkcontribslogsblock log)

Back in June, Wyatt2050 was warned on his talk page by Goandgoo (talkcontribslogsblock log) to not add speculation/false information because of what he was doing to the 0.15.0 page, and said if he did it again there would be consequences including a temporary block, and was blocked for it, as well as abusing multiple accounts.

Today, he removed the warning and discussion about it. After doing that he proceeded to add speculation/false information to the page Pocket Edition Alpha 0.17.0 and attempted to revert war before giving up. Obviously some form of action needs to be taken here, as he as removed a warning and gone against what he was warned not to do. EDIT: I got something a bit wrong, so I edited it, my bad. It should be fine now. Bbob1937 (talk) 22:32, 16 October 2016 (UTC)
