Vandalism : Replaces words like docks, sticks, ink sacs or boats by dicks, ball sacs and boobs. I'm undoing his changes. Please ban him : his changes are well hidden. Hopefully you can easily undo changes made to a page.... --THX 1138 4EB 11:45, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

Bedrock Page Vandalism

I would like to support deadcrow's post about vandalism of the Wheat Faming page by reporting another case of vandalism. Apparently, someone has also copied and pasted the entire Wikipedia article about Autism in place of the Bedrock page information. I have a feeling that it is the same individual that did this. I wanted to try and revert the situation like deadcrow, but after reading his post, I decided to notify the admins instead.

I could not get a suspect name, unfortunately. I think it doesn't matter anymore though. When I went back to check the Bedrock page a few minutes later, it had been restored.

apparent wheat farming page vandalism

I apologize if I'm terribly, terribly off on formatting or otherwise in posting here, but I'd just like to bring up that upon visiting the wheat farming page someone had copied and pasted an entire unrelated article from wikipedia in place of the information that should have been there, which had been completely removed. On my attempt to undo the changes I was barred with the reason that I was attempting to undo a large amount of editing another user had recently submitted, or something along those lines. Now, unless I'm very confused, which honestly happens more than I'd like to admit, this is blatant vandalism. Upon thinking of it I should have tried to get the offenders name, but as one may be able to tell I'm not exactly highly acclimated to the functioning of this website, so I'm doing the best I can. Thanks to whomever may read this by the way.


Added by deadcrow - Also the Snow and Snow Blocks page has been replaced with other content. I tried to revert it, but such a large change was not allowed, and was direct to notify admin...

Change username ?

Hello, I haven't seen anyone ask that question on that wiki before so I'm asking it : I need to change my username. The reason for this is that I want to have the same username on all the forums and wikis I contribute to, and I saw that my current username (THX_1138_4EB (or THX-1138 4EB on the other sites)) isn't usable/available everywhere. For this reason I decided to change it to SwissTHX11384EB on all these sites because it only uses letters and numbers and isn't used anywhere. So, could you please change my username to SwissTHX11384EB with all my data (user page and editing history) transferred to this new name ? I would really appreciate it (Tell me if I should ask this elsewhere and in that case, I'll move that request to the appropriate page). Thanks in advance. THX 1138 4EB 21:43, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

You can change your username by going to My Preferences which is at the top-right corner of the page.

I went to this page but I can't see how to change it.... My username is displayed but there's no way I can change it....
THX 1138 4EB 08:37, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
Make a new account and send me a mail from both accounts confirming it's you. I'll then merge your old account with your new one.--Quatroking - MCWiki Administrator 12:18, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
OK thank you so much. Here's the old account. --THX 1138 4EB 17:59, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
And here's the new one. --SwissTHX11384EB 18:00, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
Alright, merged the accounts.--Quatroking - MCWiki Administrator 18:07, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
Thanks, it worked. The user page hasn't been transferred but I'll make it again (it wasn't that big). --SwissTHX11384EB 18:13, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

This user put spam up on its talk page. I say "its" because it is highly likely to be a bot based on the content of the spam. Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 13:52, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

Fixed and removed from the gene pool.--Quatroking - MCWiki Administrator 14:21, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

Page is locked, both have been warned and once I know more about the programs then I'll decide if they stay, then the page will be unlocked again. –ultradude25 (T|C) at 04:00, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Master3395 (talkcontribslogsblock log)

This editor keeps copying Data values into their userspace (both user and talk page) - these are the editor's only edits. The userspace copy has already been deleted once, and the talkspace copy was removed and replaced with a comment asking the editor about why they did so. I'm not seeing anything that leads me to believe this editor is going to actually contribute, or is even willing to communicate with other editors. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 18:10, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

and you expect us to do.....what? he is breaking no rules, and you can do whatever you want in your own userspace.--Kizzycocoa 18:11, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
Nothing, specifically (otherwise I would have stated what I was expecting). I was merely pointing it out in the event the admins wanted to do anything. ダイノガイ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 18:13, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Restore Page: Experience Orb

As they are now well beyond mere speculation at this point. Though I'm not sure what the content of the page was previously. Obviously the exact action to take is up to your discretion. Thanks. --20:56, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

Random Videos

At least two videos have been put up by one YouTube user about random tutorials, one about a secret door through lava and another about creating a "Hellgate" as he calls it, that can easily be explained in writing, if they're even worth being written about. The videos themselves aren't all that great, and the user who put them up was very aggressive when I asked him to remove them from the page himself before they just got deleted. They were both tagged for speedy deletion yesterday, as per Wiki rule #16, but now that warning seems to be gone, for whatever reason... (I suspect it was the same user who put them up) I don't think those articles are necessary, and I think they should be deleted. --Devilquak 20:35, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

I did placed those deletion tags, for non respect of rule 16. See the page history. Calinou - talk × contribs » 20:51, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

Protection of Diamond (Ore)

This page often gets vandalized, could someone semi-protect it so only autoconfirmed users can edit it? Calinou - talk × contribs » 08:02, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Protection is a tool to be used only to stop a currently ongoing vandal spree, or edit war. It is not something to be used on any sort of regular basis. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 08:04, 3 July 2011 (UTC)
