Put an unknown image and slime with chicken. Semi-protect that page and block that user--65.23.244.248 20:01, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

It appears that this user vandalized two pages. Just block their IP address. The Blobs16px 20:19, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
How an anonymous user can block anonymous users?--65.23.244.248 18:47, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
Blobs2 was not suggesting you block them, he was suggesting that an admin block them. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 18:49, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Anonymous users and registered users alike cannot block other users without being in the Administrator group. There are several other groups that allow user blocks, but generally "administrator" is the most common. In addition, unless you are logged in and are an administrator, you cannot block anyone. —Maethoredhel (TalkContribsLogs) 18:51, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Who is following my Vandal report and my semi-protect for Dragon's Breath?--67.224.202.157 19:22, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
Likely, no admin took any action because none was needed. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 22:01, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
The person stopped editing, so we don't need to block them. The Blobs16px 02:22, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
Everyone revert IP edits. Please semi-protect that page--66.50.13.165 19:07, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
Actually, you are right. The page has receiving frequent vandalism lately. Can an admin semi protect it? The Blobs16px 19:21, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, Blobs2!--64.237.158.48 19:29, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
Is it just me or no admin takes action on IP requests (No offense)--173.215.232.156 21:55, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

┌──────────────────────────┘

It is weird. The vandalism continues, one of which was reverted by Orthotope. The Blobs16px 22:14, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

There is nothing to be done. That page is not being vandalised particularly frequently, no more so than any other page. The particular user you singled out made a few edits and left, there's no point blocking them unless they come back with the same IP. MajrTalk

General discussion regarding Cymonah2[edit]

Hallo! I wanted to bring this page to attention as it seems to hold some importance in regards to a user we harbor. I am not by any means seeking to offend, harass, or otherwise bring down Cymonah2 (talkcontribslogsblock log), but this Wikipedia page seems to hold a great deal of importance. For reference: wp:Sockpuppet investigations/Cymonah2. It would seem that this is the same user, as the somewhat unintelligible English within their edits match that of which can be found on Wikipedia under the same name. Additionally, the case was closed only two days ago, meaning that this is all fairly recent. I have a suspicion regarding a previous user that was here on the wiki about a year ago, by the name of CreeperFan2016. The reason for this being that Cymonah2, in the History section of their userpage, states "CreeperFan2016 Now Buy The Full Game". I wish to publicly ask Cymonah2 if the Wikipedia case is indeed them, and if they have ever had any previous affiliation with the Minecraft Wiki under any username. Regards, —Maethoredhel (TalkContribsLogs) 15:42, 14 January 2017 (UTC)

Pardon the expression, but I generally feel that this editor is following a pattern of wp:Disruptive editing. I commented on his talk page with a welcome, and he afterwards blanked the page and added other things back in. Additionally, this editor has made several other unnoticed modifications to other users' talk pages, which can be verified by checking Special:Contributions/Cymonah2. —Maethoredhel (TalkContribsLogs) 16:03, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
(edit conflict) The user also uploaded three images without using them. I have marked two of them for deletion, and I should probably do the same for the third. I have put a message on their talk page, so we should wait for a response before blocking them. The Blobs16px 16:13, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
Further evidence against him: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Cymonah2&diff=prev&oldid=750022011. There is clearly a pattern, checking this diff here on the Minecraft Wiki. —Maethoredhel (TalkContribsLogs) 16:16, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
Actually, checking the upload log, they uploaded a lot of images without using the images. The Blobs16px 16:48, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
Might as well, they've been blocked multiple times and just continue to make useless, nonsensical edits (even when they're blocked, thanks to user profiles...). MajrTalk

Lisaguinan[edit]

Possible copyright violation[edit]

I was creating a new page to describe the Seed Picker, an exclusive feature of Pocket Edition that lets users create a world from pre-selected seeds obtained from user-generated content on (I think) Xbox Live. The UI displays thumbnails of the generated worlds, so I uploaded the images (which turned out to be full-size images, not thumbnails) to display in a table or gallery and marked them as Mojang-copyrighted since I uploaded them from a game folder. However, on further investigation I discovered that the game downloads these images from a Microsoft server (https://ugcorigin.s-microsoft.com), so now I'm concerned that these may be copyrighted by Microsoft instead in which case we can't use them on the wiki if I'm not mistaken. The files are:

  • {{escaped link|File:LzEyLzQxYmQzYjkyLTMyNGUtNGVmNy1hOGE1LTlkMDZjMDkxYzNmNS81NTAvcHJvZmlsZS4=.jpg}}

Minecraft screenshots are freely usable on this wiki. Just make sure to put {{license Mojang}} on the file pages, move the files to more descriptive names, and use the files on pages. The Blobs16px 17:03, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

BloodCaster of the Russian Minecraft Wiki has been promoted there by AttemptToCallNil to an administrator after a discussion (link, logs).

No longer official[edit]

For a long time now, https://minecraft.net/en-us/help/ has considered this wiki an UNOFFICIAL HELP RESOURCE, but it is still labelled as an "Official Wiki" on the top left, on the Gamepedia bar. Maybe an admin and/or Curse should consider removing that, since it is kind of screwed up to trick readers into thinking this is official. OSX Plays (talk) 19:55, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

From 2011 to 2016, this wiki (along with the forums) was listed as an "official resource" at http://www.minecraft.net/community. My guess is that they changed this section during the site redesign because someone at Microsoft insisted that any site not owned and controlled by Microsoft can't be listed as 'official'. If this really bothers you that much, get a public statement from someone at Mojang about it, and then contact Curse directly; admins here can't change the Curse toolbar. -- Orthotopetalk 21:05, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

‎159.180.69.* IP Range and 198.180.187.31[edit]

There have been numerous instances of vandalism by multiple IP addresses coming from the same IP range: 159.180.69.*. The vandalism campaign started with 159.180.69.31, then 159.180.69.32 (though their only edit did contribute to the page), and finally as 159.180.69.35 (who also vandalized the same page in the same way as .31). Furthermore, there was another recent rogue edit to the Lava page by ‎198.180.187.31, which belongs to the same service provider and region as the other IP's. From this information, it seems all of these edits were made by the same user. I'd suggest a temporary ban from editing on those IP ranges. Jocopa3 (talk) 21:17, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

159.108.69.* seems to be some sort of proxy or accelerator, as there are quite a few different IPs going through it. Only 159.180.69.31 and 159.180.69.35 seem to be the same user, as they have the same IP address behind the proxy. MajrTalk

Abuse filter needed[edit]

Lots of unregistered users making edits like this one, which are likely people editing for the sake of editing. These edits serve no purpose and just clutter the recent changes. We need an abuse filter that prevents them. The Blobs16px

They keep happening, like in this edit, and they only annoy recent changes patrollers. Can Majr create such a filter. The Blobs16px 00:14, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
Again i saw another one at the World of Color Update page. Storymodefan0315 (talk) 04:16, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
That particular one happened to be valid – Sealbudsman talk/contr 12:10, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
What is the purpose of these edits? The Blobs16px 13:51, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
The particular edit on the World of Color page, that editor placed a space after a comma, which is correct. The two other edits reported before that, I can't guess the purpose and I do support adjusting the abuse filter if that is possible.Sealbudsman talk/contr 17:01, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
Also that second edit mentioned seems like it's a person who just wanted good readability: leaving one space above and below the header lines. Not worth someone's time to do, maybe -- but certainly not worth reverting, as it was an improvement, however small. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 18:44, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
 Disagree — If the edits aren't against the rules, don't vandalize the articles, and don't amount to a DOS attack, then leave them be. They may be new users testing how the editing process works, aborted attempts at larger edits, etc. and "filtering" them may discourage people from becoming future editors. Patrolling these kinds of edits is just the (minor) cost of a wiki "anyone can edit". —munin · 16 px 16 px · 18:35, 4 May 2017 (UTC)
Didn't think of that; good point. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 18:44, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

Adding to Stronghold Structure Blueprints[edit]

When going ahead and adding the Straight Staircase to the Minecraft_Wiki:Projects/Structure_Blueprints/Stronghold page, changing
"=== Straight Staircase === \n Work in progress!! \n //layered blueprint stuff}}"
to
"{{LoadPage|Minecraft Wiki:Projects/Structure Blueprints/Stronghold/Straight Staircase|Straight Staircase|h3}}"
the new user filter blocks me as I was "deleting" a section, when really changing the section to include Minecraft_Wiki:Projects/Structure_Blueprints/Stronghold/Straight_Staircase in the page. So, if anyone can edit it, that be nice.

Blocked from creating new pages[edit]

Hi admins, I'm a new user of this Gamepedia and I was hoping to expand on the {{escaped link|Thaumcraft}} pages.

Hungary Wiki[edit]

Dear admin team! I don't know, that you know, but lots of deficiencies and should be deleted page in hungarian language wikipedia. I'm trying to do, but I can't delete the pages, and the hungarian bureaucrat and admins offline. Therefore I would ask to you, that you can give me admin? --GDK555 (talk) 15:54, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

If an entire wiki needs to be deleted, contact Curse, not an admin. The Blobs16px 18:49, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
Blobs2, you are taking it wrong. The Hungarian user wants to delete pages on that wiki, not the wiki itself: that would seem absurd, although the activity is quite low.
GDK555, I can’t speak for admins here, since I’m not one of them (even more, I’m not an active editor of this wiki, mostly working on the Russian one), but, if you will prove yourself as a capable and responsible participant of the Hungarian wiki who can be trusted, you may become an administrator and try to make your wiki prosper even more, although the Hungarian community is quite small. — user:NickTheRed37 (talk) 16:22, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Edit warring on Renewable resource[edit]

Lots of users removing content without explanation, then removing it again after their edit is reverted. A two-week protection should solve the problem. The Blobs16px 03:57, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

I should note here that in the specific edit which I reverted, which a user reverted back, that user was correct, I was mistaken. It was correct to remove that PE table row about the Purpur block related items, because of the 1.0 update to the game. Maybe someone can double check me on that.
However, yes there are a heck of a lot of others where nobody seems to be explaining their deletions. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 04:57, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
Chorus trees are renewable, but they must be planted on end stone, which is not renewable because respawning the ender dragon requires non-renewable glass. Glass is only renewable with trading, which Pocket Edition doesn't have. The Blobs16px 15:24, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Nope. User profiles have been a spam magnet since they were added, and since they're not real edits they are completely uncontrollable. Even blocking them doesn't prevent them from editing their profiles, which is why we usually don't bother now. MajrTalk

So now the front page doesn't have to cascade-protect Template:ItemSprite! See it at work in Minecraft_Wiki/editcopy. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 17:35, 13 April 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, stylesheet tells the sprites to use CSS to determine the image instead of setting it in the style parameter. It makes the sprite sheets a lot more efficient when there are many calls, but with how few calls there are on the main page it shouldn't be too much of an issue unless an admin wants to add the CSS for it.

Hello, I'm a new user and I created accidently a new section and I can't remove him. It's on the Spawn Chunks page, the section "The area".–Preceding unsigned comment was added by Touche159 (talkcontribs) at 11:53, 15 April 2017 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

He undid my edit to Template:Pocket Edition versions two times without an explanation. Storymodefan0315 (talk) 09:20, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

That looks like a small edit war. The user does not need to be blocked. Instead, we need to discuss what icon to use. I would support the woodland explorer map. The Blobs16px 13:56, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
I do not dislike woodland explorer maps. However, it is early to decide now.--{{User:Beans1512/Sign}} 22:32, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
Since there are already multiple development versions, the version is not likely to have any unknown features, and there definitely will not be any major features. The Blobs16px 01:18, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Although some doubt remains ... But it will be nice. I agree with woodland explorer maps.
Also, I am very sorry that I was asked to block. I think he (Storymodefan0315) has to apologize to me.--{{User:Beans1512/Sign}} 10:46, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Actually, lots of users make mistakes about who needs to be blocked. The Blobs16px 13:59, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
I'm sorry. This is the first time that I was asked to block ...--{{User:Beans1512/Sign}} 14:07, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Protect Pocket Edition 1.1[edit]

Lots of IP speculation, particularly relating to the release date. The Blobs16px 13:30, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Pocket Edition 1.2 should probably get the same treatment, keeps getting created. - MinecraftPhotos4U (talk) 10:24, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

repointing links on {{blocks}} and {{items}}[edit]

Per Template_talk:Blocks#.22Blocks.22_title, could we get the title parameters of the {{blocks}} and {{items}} templates to point to Block and Item respectively, rather than to Blocks and Items? – Sealbudsman talk/contr 00:24, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

VeenM64 (talkcontribslogsblock log)[edit]

There was a file (this one) that the user supposedly had requested for deletion three weeks ago. After no response, it appears said user is angry, violating rule #3 (with this comment) and making a page that is obviously spam. -BDJP (t|c) 20:58, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

I'd like it to be deleted for one (surprisingly simple) reason: it's a duplicate of SmallCropFarmIsometric.png. VeenM64 (talk) 21:08, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
Well, there was absolutely no reason for you to get angry over ANY of this. You simply should've just talked to an administrator (calmly) regarding why the page needs to be deleted. Heck, you clearly should've had second thoughts before posting any of this. Unfortunately, these actions by you will most likely have consequences. -BDJP (t|c) 21:22, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
That's exactly what I did on the file talk page, but absolutely nothing was done. I even once mentioned Orthotope's name on it in an effort to attract attention, but even that didn't help. :( VeenM64 (talk) 16:25, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
Alright cool your jets, everybody... Let's just put a {{delete}} tag on the File page, and call it a day.
VeenM64: all you have to do is put a {{delete}} header at the top of the page, then it goes into a queue for the admins, and someone will delete it when they do a sweep. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 21:29, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
I'm still trying to figure out why you uploaded the same file a second time instead of just moving the original one. Also, making disruptive and borderline abusive edits is not a good way to get wiki staff to do what you want. -- Orthotopetalk 07:05, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
I just wanted to start fresh with a new upload so that I could make a better image description, as well as giving it a proper Mojang license. VeenM64 (talk) 16:25, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
For future reference, you can edit a file's description (and license templates) just the same as any other page, by clicking the "Edit" tab when viewing the file's page. User:Dinoguy1000Special:Contributions/Dinoguy1000? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 18:15, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

{{escaped link|:File:Villager.png}} is bugged[edit]

{{escaped link|:File:Villager.png}} is bugged due to the file moved to {{escaped link|:File:Farmer Villager.png}} by Oakar567. Please fix. DentedHarp90041t 06:14, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

For some reason, Oakar567 did a copy and paste move instead of an actual move. An admin will need to copy the content back and move the image the correct way, deleting the existing version. The Blobs16px 13:22, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
Actually, it was a proper move. A history merge will be required. The Blobs16px 13:36, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

Defeating the ender dragon[edit]

In Tutorials/Defeating the ender dragon, I tried to remove all the info about using splash potions of harming - because, as it rightly says at the end of the article, "as of 1.9 [...] Splash Potions of Harming are useless".

My edit was disallowed, it says,

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

Please remove all the parts that mention using harming pots. It's misleading otherwise, there's no point discussing it throughout then saying at the end that they're useless.

Thanks. 86.20.193.222 11:53, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

What is the name of the section you tried to remove? The Blobs16px 13:58, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

"Splash Potion of Harming Pros" and "...Cons".

There are some other bits that need removing too, e.g. in "Before Entering", the bullet-point "A splash potion of Harming II (To throw at the dragon when it tries to head butt you)".

It's probably easiest to just search "harming" and you'll see all mentions.86.20.193.222 15:28, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

 Done I removed the content. The Blobs16px 22:36, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Um, it still has 3 parts,

1. In "Before Entering" - "A splash potion of Harming II (To throw at the dragon when it tries to head butt you)"

2. In "Managing the Dragon" - "Cons" - "... quickly throw your Splash Potion of Harming at it. "

and 3rd, I see no point now in the "Notice" - "The Dragon does not head butt anymore as of 1.9, meaning Splash Potions of Harming are useless."

(I still can't do that myself, because it complains about removing a section again)

Thanks for your attention. 86.20.193.222 02:40, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

(BTW, the dragon seems totally immune to Splash Harm, from testing I did earlier today. That's why I kinda wanted to get this fixed, so others don't waste time/die nastily by trying to use them ) 86.20.193.222 02:45, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

The notice section is still useful because it indicates that you should not use potion of harming. I have removed the other items.
Also, I am not sure why it said you were trying to remove a section because it detects whether you are removing a section header. The Blobs16px 13:52, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
Thanks.
I don't know why it wouldn't let me, but that's the message I got.
As far as I can tell, the dragon is immune to all potions. Presumably, that means tipped arrows too. If that's true, it'd be useful to add that somewhere on the wiki - it's not an easy thing to find out. 86.20.193.222 19:49, 12 May 2017 (UTC)

Hello,

How can we get special page for Lithuanian language translates? We want to translate „Minecraft“ game topics in this page.

I'm waiting for your answer. Please answer with arguments. Happy day :) –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Gustisz (talkcontribs). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

An incomplete Lithuanian translation already exists here: Minecraft Wiki:Projects/Lithuanian translation. When it is complete, it will be moved to its own wiki, but in the meantime, the translation is managed here. | violine1101(Talk) 11:29, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
