Imbedded Twitch link[edit]

The Twitch link that is usually at the top of the page disappeared after I reloaded the page. After reloading the page several more times it still didn't come up again and I can't figure out how to get it to appear again. Please help!!! –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Rowanmbs cat (talkcontribs) at 23:00, 08 January 2019 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

It was removed by Curse as a result of the acquisition. --Pcj (talk) 23:10, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
Will it ever return?--Rowanmbs cat (talkcontribs) at 23:00, 08 January 2019 (UTC)
Since Curse Media (the subsidiary that runs Gamepedia) is no longer owned by Twitch, that part of the site header no longer made much sense to continue to include. It most likely will not return. Any changes to the Twitch channel embedding on content pages, however, have not yet been confirmed. Twitch will remain as the primary authorization / login method for Gamepedia at this point in time, however. DSquirrelGMGRASP logo.png𝓣𝓟𝓒 05:19, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Licensing legal issues[edit]

The licensing WikiProject has members who are adding license templates to unlicensed non-Minecraft-related files but some of the licenses are possibly not correct. For instance some images that are almost definitely copyrighted by Mojang are being tagged with CC-BY. This could have legal implications for the wiki if this continues to happen. Should something be done about this? – Nixinova Nixinova sig1.png Nixinova sig2.png 01:17, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

Fixed some of them just now. Some are copyrighted by Mojang as Minecraft is either shown or mentioned, or part of the Mojang logo is shown. Others are in the public domain as they are freely seen on web articles or social media. -BDJP (t|c) 02:17, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
Public domain usually only applies to government works, or if the creator has explicitly placed it there; whether or not you can find an image on other sites has no bearing on its copyright status. If the licensing status is not known, it is probably copyrighted. -- Orthotopetalk 05:00, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
Honestly, I'm not a fan of the whole license system right now on Minecraft Wiki. We allow many images to have no specified license on them indefinitely, and nothing happens. What if all of them turn out to be fully copyrighted? If using the wrong license could have legal implications, wouldn't this as well? In addition, {{License copyright}} says that fully copyrighted are allowed with a fair use rationale, but what? What kind of fair use rationale is needed?-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 13:25, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
I don't know anything about licences. But I do think a whole overhaul of our system is needed, because right now I don't have a clue which licence applies to which type of image. My rule of thumb is, if I don't know, others might not as well. – Jack McKalling [ Talk Contrib ] 09:07, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
I suggest a license template for logos (e.g. [1]).  CuervoTalk 07:33, 20 January 2019 (UTC)


due Oracle have dropped support Java 9 and 10,it's needed to update that link,I suggest to change it to https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/archive-139210.html which can made you could find all the java version you want to use,including 9 and 10.I don't know about this and don't know how to reverse that link back to I have to remove that link temporary for further editing. -- 00:23, 12 Feb 2019 (UTC)

Mods/2DCraft Vandalism[edit]

The Mods/2DCraft page has an entire section about another game by that game's creator stuck in the middle. Isn't this irrelevant to the mod? --Aido (talk) 14:34, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

@Aido: Well, now the mod page has been moved to the FTB wiki and that wiki has dealt with it, so we don't have to worry about it anymore. :) I would say, for other mod pages like this, that it's a bit much to have a whole section about a game based on a mod with a ton of links when it's not particularly relevant, a slight mention would probably do.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 15:02, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

Vandalizing offensive image uploader[edit]

The user Diagnosticlord (talkcontribslogsblock log) uploaded six versions of the same offensive image, and (used them when he) vandalized a page twice. See his contributions, it's the only things he's done. – Jack McKalling [ Talk Contrib ] 09:34, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Blocked and nuked. That's not exactly the thing I want to wake up to. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 09:39, 16 January 2019 (UTC)
Note that I've requested on Discord for a Gamepedia Staff to check the IP addresses of Diagnosticlord and ItzWreep (talkcontribslogsblock log), as behavior similarities make me think that they might be the same person. If they do turn out to be the same person, I'm not sure if I should go ahead and up ItsWreep's block to indefinite or keep it as it is.-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 15:24, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

It is ok if I make a new page, right?[edit]

I want to make a page called upcoming 1.14. Is it ok? 13:33, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

Perhaps you could elaborate a bit further what content you're thinking it would have? We already have the page 1.14 so I don't see why we would need another one.-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 16:03, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

Please sign your posts with ~~~~

/video pages are not going to be added for any youtuber's videos, the only youtube accounts that get video pages are from minecraft spotlights (retired, they used to who own the wiki IIRC), and slicedlime (mojang employee). Any other channel's videos on this wiki would make the style of the videos inconsistent across the whole wiki. Slicedlime's videos are only for update pages, so that's fine, but then we shouldn't add aome other random youtuber's update video to update pages as well/instead. Same with articles about mechanics, blocks, items, entities, etc. FVbico (talk) 00:55, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
There doesn't seem to be any restriction about videos on Tutorials subpages, however. ~ Amatulic (talk) 15:36, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

Add speedrun tutorial[edit]

I'm trying to add a tutorial page for speedruns, but I got the message below. Can someone help?


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.

Tyger plays (talk) 00:46, 22 January 2019 (UTC)

What was some of the contents of your edit? Were you creating the page as a Subpage of Tutorials (eg Tutorials/Speedrunning)? – Nixinova Nixinova sig1.png Nixinova sig2.png 00:50, 22 January 2019 (UTC)

Yes, the goal was to create a subpage under Tutorials. I have temporarily posted the proposed content on my own Talk page so you can see it.

Tyger plays (talk) 03:56, 22 January 2019 (UTC)

Hi Tyger plays and welcome to the Minecraft Wiki! Your edit was caught in an abuse filter, which is basically a set of rules that disallow an edit that meets certain conditions. They are meant to prevent vandalism and spam but occasionally hit false positives. This particular abuse filter you got caught in, although effective, catches quite a few false positives and makes it difficult for a user who has made less than a certain number of edits to create a new page; I'm sorry you had to go through that. You did the right thing reporting here; I have now created the page as Tutorials/Speedrun, given you the attribution in the edit summary of my creation, and will be doing a little bit of cleanup to it. Thank you for contributing the Minecraft Wiki and let me know if you have any questions.-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 04:06, 22 January 2019 (UTC)

Technical Issue[edit]

Hello; i now see that there is technical issues on my account used here; while i read talk pages and some other pages; it looks that i appear logged out; there is default font; the default black netbar, the default layout; and all default layouts, the tab text changes to the default text instead of "minecraft wiki", it now says "(page) - Official minecraft wiki", can someone help me please >:I :angry: . -- Philip57sundfors TALK CONTRIBUTIONS 09:27, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

(edit) also, i cannot go to gamepedia just to sign in, while i click the link to the login page the wiki redirects back to this page, please i need help; but only while reading occurs this; editing and then i will be logged in again :). please help -- Philip57sundfors TALK CONTRIBUTIONS 10:08, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
@Philip57sundfors: If I'm understanding you correctly, which I'm not sure I am, those seem like strange problems that I've never heard of before. So you're logged out and then when you click the edit button you're logged back in, and then when you go back to reading the page you're logged out? Often one gets randomly logged out occasionally, it happens to me a lot, but usually you should be able to sign back in with no issue. I'll report this on Slack.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 20:09, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
I know you play around a lot with your profile skins (and scripting?). Have you made any recent changes that might be involved? – Auldrick (talk · contribs) 20:13, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
@Auldrick and Madminecrafer12: Nope, my javascript page does work without problems, and the issue with being logged out was unknown; i cleared cookies and then logged out and logged back in, and then i are logged in again and the problem is over :-). Good that while i click the edit button and i'm logged in, but if i're logged out and reading the wiki might be some problems, i hate the default font/color/text. logged in is better than logged out. -- Philip57sundfors TALK CONTRIBUTIONS 09:29, 21 February 2019 (UTC)

Prevented from posting on talk page[edit]

After a night of trying to get one of the programs on this page to run and having no luck I decided to warn other users using the talk page about problems with the software but I was denied because I was making the first post, thus creating the page. If you believe my post was appropriate, I would also like to attach a brief warning to the project page so that users are made aware of the problem. --Merry midlight (talk) 06:21, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi Merry midlight, thanks for reporting the issue here; I went ahead and made the edit for you on Talk:Programs and editors/Resource pack creators. The filter that caught your edit tends to be more aggressive towards new users, but should ease up once you make around 5 edits. –Sonicwave talk 06:27, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Vandalism by anon user (Grass Block page; Trident page)[edit]

Had to revert several changes to page: Trident by anon user (three sets of changes dated 03:26, 23 March 2019‎ and 03:28, 23 March 2019‎). Example change: Added text "its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit its lit". User also added links for random words on the page to the page-edit function.

Subsequently, same user vandalized Grass Block page. Nixinova reverted them already.

Suggest IP-level ban.

Memetics talk | edits 03:42, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi Memetics; thank you for reporting! I actually blocked them for a few days two minutes before you posted this, so we shouldn't have any more trouble from this person unless they start editing from another IP address. :-) See the block log. Cheers, --Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 03:47, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
Great; you act fast.  :-) Is there a faster or more effective way of reporting vandals, or is this the preferred method? Memetics talk | edits 03:49, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
On the wiki, this generally is the best place to report vandals. We do have a recent changes feed so admins can see the edits vandals make and reports that are made to this page in real time. Usually at least one admin is active at any given time (or if not a member of GRASP), but there are exceptions. If you'd like, you can join the Minecraft Wiki Discord server, which can sometimes be a quicker way of getting admin attention. This page explains all the details about the server and gives the invite link. Let me know if you have any questions!--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 03:53, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

Range block[edit]

This IP range belongs to a long-term disruptive editor who edits both MCW-EN and MCW-RU. They've been using about 10 IPs from that range; the whole range has been blocked for two weeks three times now (twice by AttemptToCallNil and most recently by me). That doesn't include the countless times the individual IPs have been blocked ([2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7], and [8] to name a few). So, if they start disruptively editing again after this block expires, would it be alright to go ahead and block the range for a month? Before blocking any range for longer than two weeks, Gamepedia Staff should be contacted, so pinging Game widow as the wiki manager to see if this would be alright. Thanks, --Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 13:42, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

Also, note that all edits that have been made by the range since February 2016 have been that disruptive editor.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 13:53, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
Just a month? I'd set the block to three months. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 14:44, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
Three months may be a better idea, considering they have been editing MCW-EN for such a long time and as I mentioned, there hasn't been a constructive edit from the range in years.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 14:46, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
Three months at least. Is there any room in this wiki's policies to permanently ban such an editor? Seems as though it would be warranted, based on the history you've described. He's had plenty of chances to adjust his behavior and has chosen to continue being disruptive, yes? Memetics talk | edits 22:03, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the suggestion, but we very rarely block IPs indefinitely and never ban ranges indefinitely. IPs can always change periodically or be shared, so if we blocked one indefinitely, a constructive user on that IP address would never be able to edit. In the case of a /24 range, it actually has 256 IP addresses within it, so there it is even more important to try to avoid very long blocks, especially when not necessary. I hope this helps!--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 22:26, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
If you are quite sure it's the same vandal, a longer block for those IPs is fine — Game widow (talk) 11:38, 25 March 2019 (UTC)

Trying to remove erroneous info from Fletching Table[edit]

There's a section in Fletching Table that has info that appears to have been copied in bulk from Cartography Table, and claims that a Fletching Table can be used to edit maps. I tried to remove it but it won't let me. Could someone fix it please? 11:24, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

Zombie needs semi-protection[edit]

If I see a page that suffers from frequent vandalism, where would I request protection? On en-wiki we have WP:RFPP, but this page here is the closest thing I can find. The Zombie article seems to experience frequent vandalism from anonymous IP editors, and hardly any of those edits in this past month have been constructive. On Wikipedia I'd semi-protect it, but I lack the admin tools here. Would this be a candidate for semi-protection here on the Minecraft Wiki? ~ Amatulic (talk) 04:55, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

This would probably be the best place for requesting protection. I protected it for 2 months (not indefinite since there were a few constructive IP edits), though another admin is free to change the protection time if they wish. Several of the vandalism edits (including the most recently reverted) are from, who has been blocked in the past. –Sonicwave talk 06:37, 10 April 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. I was thinking 1-2 months protection also. ~ Amatulic (talk) 14:17, 10 April 2019 (UTC)
@Amatulic: The admin noticeboard is basically a combination of WP's AIV, RPP, edit filters/false positives, AN, ANI, requests for undeletion, history merges, etc. all in one page. We don't need separate noticeboards for all of those because MCW is not nearly as big as WP so there's no reason to separate the admin noticeboard into a bunch of other pages. So yes, this would generally be the best place to request page protection. An admin's talk page would work as well if you see that they have been active recently, but otherwise you'll likely get a quicker response here. Now that a Discord server for the wiki has been created, many use that to request admin attention instead (I personally prefer using the admin noticeboard to do so, however, as not everyone is on Discord).--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 14:34, 10 April 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. I followed the discord link but gave it up after I decided I prefer all my Minecraft-wiki communication in one place. This noticeboard will serve the purposes you describe well enough. I'm happy that it isn't a WP:CESSPIT like ANI over on en-Wiki (I avoid ANI whenever possible). ~ Amatulic (talk) 02:02, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
@Amatulic: I stay as far away as ANI as I can; I'm happy doing the content work and the vandalism fighting in the background, no dramaboards for me. :-) I understand your perspective; I do think that probably a bit too much discussion about important topics takes place on Discord rather than on the wiki itself. Obviously it's easier to chat on Discord and I'm guilty of doing so myself, but not everyone is on Discord and it is better to keep discussion centralized.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 03:29, 12 April 2019 (UTC)
Agreed. I also appreciate how the conversations here are documented/archived - easier to see at a glance what's been going on. Conversation on Discord is nice but more ephemeral and harder to examine once past. Memetics talk | edits 04:53, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Might be time for another range block[edit]

IPs in bold have been blocked before.

For nearly a month now, these IPs have been inserting false information into articles. -BDJP (t|c) 12:25, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

 Comment I think the range would be Contributions from that range. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 15:03, 12 April 2019 (UTC)
Yes, those IPs cover a /17, and they all belong to a cable internet company in Mumbai whose range is I know that's rather large, but if Contributions from that bigger range (Special:Contributions/ and Special:Contributions/ are also nonconstructive, it might warrant blocking as two /16 ranges. ~ Amatulic (talk) 15:21, 12 April 2019 (UTC)
Actually looks fine, only old contributions. ~ Amatulic (talk) 15:26, 12 April 2019 (UTC)
If the IPs currently listed above are excluded, and so are the two edits made from that range in 2015, this range has other IPs with recent contributions. Listing them here:
So many edits from these IPs are false, many other edits are questionable. There do seem to be some valid edits though, but I doubt that means we shouldn't block the range. Note that some of these edits remain in current versions of articles and need to be checked.
I looked up contributions from to see whether this pattern covers a wider range. It doesn't seem that way, so it's likely the original /17 is our target. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 15:28, 12 April 2019 (UTC)
Whew, that is a lot of IPs... as ATCN says, some of the edits are blatantly false, others are borderline, and others are constructive. I can't tell whether all these edits are coming from the same person; if they are, I'd definitely support a range block, but otherwise I'm not quite as sure. Unfortunately, it does look like /17 is the smallest we can go while still making sure most or all of the IPs are blocked, even if it does prevent 32,768 addresses from editing.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 16:07, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

Update Server Wrapper Table[edit]

I am trying to update the Server Wrapper table, and upon saving I get this error message, presumably because the links are to GitHub repos and the like:

An automated filter has detected that you are attempting to post a server IP. 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.

I am attempting to update the Server Wrappers table, I visited every website and forum linked in the table, and looked for the signs of the most recent activity for each project and updated the Date field. I also changed notes to make it clearer if a project had been officially abandoned by the developer. When I attempted to save my changes I get this error message, presumably because all the links are to GitHub repos and the like. I am trying to make the list useful by sorting on Date. I also attempted to edit the template for the table and change the "Date" field to "Last Updated" as it seems that would be very useful to people who are attempting to find a server control panel to install today. About 75% of the projects listed are no longer updated and won't work with modern versions of Minecraft. BrightRhino (talk) 19:03, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

It's because version numbers with 4 components look like IPs. I have asked other administrators to discuss the possibility of modifying or disabling that filter. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 19:28, 25 April 2019 (UTC)
That makes sense, thanks for explaining. I modified the few cases of four part version numbers with dashes. It updated correctly now. How do I change the header to read "Date Updated" rather than "Date"? BrightRhino (talk)

I can't give a specific timeline for this to be done, but it will be done. Given that you want the account deleted, I suggest you log out now. — Game widow (talk) 13:18, 26 April 2019 (UTC)


I'm trying to edit the dlc (skin, texture, mash-up, etc.) pages; as it currently is it is split among versions and I'm trying to combine it. However it won't let me move it around as it thinks it is being removed. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Kelis98 (talkcontribs) at 17:10, 6 May 2019‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

The filters that disallowed your edit will cease to react to your actions when you've made a relatively small number of edits. Ten edits should be enough for that. It is not practical to make exceptions for specific users. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 17:16, 6 May 2019 (UTC) (talkcontribslogsblock log)[edit]

Unnecessary protection[edit]

If you take a look at the protection log, the disambig pages for versions have autoconfirmed protection which isn't necessary. – Nixinova Nixinova sig1.png Nixinova sig2.png 20:53, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

Went ahead and unprotected all of these pages. I'm also not sure that Java Edition 1.9-1.12 (or many of the other indefinitely-protected version pages that are not the current or upcoming version) need to stay protected, since they're not necessarily high-traffic anymore. –Sonicwave talk 21:09, 5 April 2019 (UTC)

Rana being protected to directors-only also seems excessive, given that the only actual perpetrator with an account appears to have been block-evading anyway and all other edits are IP edits. - User-12316399 (talk) 12:55, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

It may also be worth unprotecting 1.15 and 1.16 now, since these are now disambiguation pages rather than Java Edition version pages, and they as such may not be as major targets for vandalism and speculation. - User-12316399 (talk) 14:10, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

...and Music Disc, Seed (level generation), Xbox Edition, Xbox 360 Edition, Squid, Xbox One Edition and potentially many other pages could have their protections completely removed as well, given the sheer age of the protections and their questionable relevancy. Of course, if it continues to be a problem the affected pages can be protected again. - User-12316399 (talk) 14:22, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

I've went ahead and created Template:Unprotect, which can be attached to such pages if the unprotection feels unneccesary (most likely via talk page request, unless you're me). - User-12316399 (talk) 14:56, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
All linked pages unprotected. (Most protections were over 6 years old!) I think it's better if we had monitoring mechanisms for recently-unprotected pages if problematic IP editing becomes a problem again. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 15:22, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
Do we really need Template:Unprotect? It's just another thing the admins would need to check up on, it doesn't (currently) add the page to any category for that purpose either, and requesting here should be good enough anyways. – Jack McKalling [ Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Diamond Pickaxe.png ] 15:39, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
Agree with Jack, it's better to just post on the admin noticeboard, imo.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 15:48, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
All of the pages in the category have been unprotected, but I also agree that a template seems unnecessary and posting here should be enough. –Sonicwave talk 06:24, 9 May 2019 (UTC) (talkcontribslogsblock log)[edit]

Removing beast boy addition note from Java Edition Indev 0.31 20100130[edit]

Hello, I'm trying to fix a small thing where the wiki says Beast Boy was added in 20100130 while it was actually in 20100129. I added the thing to the 20100129 page but I can't remove it from the 20100130 page, since I'm a "new user" (though I'm not even logged in or registered but whatever). The info thing said I should put it here, so yeah. -- 21:34, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

I've removed it from the 0130 page for you. – Nixinova Nixinova sig1.png Nixinova sig2.png 21:48, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

Simplify page structure for Structure Blueprints/New Village[edit]

The current layout of the Structure Blueprints page produces an unnecessarily large table of contents, mostly because of the redundant headings "Materials" and "Blueprint" that are placed onto every structure. While I was updating the page with additional content, I decided to simplify the layout of the page by removing those headings - since I'm a new user, the system disallowed my newest edit. I believe that a shorter table of contents without redundant content points provides information more efficiently to the user.--Scarcl0ud (talk) 21:43, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

The abuse filter hit because you were "remove a large number of sections". I would actually advise against removing the headers in this case as there is an easier way. As I did in this diff, you can just make the TOC only show header 2 and 3, skipping header 4. You should be able to do the same thing on other pages you see without hitting the abuse filter. KnightMiner · (t) 21:52, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
I agree that this is an even better option. Thanks :) --Scarcl0ud (talk) 16:30, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

I can't edit anything, even though I'm just correcting some info and adding more[edit]

I always try to correct some outdated info and add more, but since I'm considered a "New User", I can't save any changes. I truly believe that everything I do here is indeed constructive, but I won't be able to continue if none of my changes are saved.–Preceding unsigned comment was added by LateLag (talkcontribs) at 13:22, 28 March 2019 (UTC).

Hello LateLag, I'm sorry that happened to you; your edit that got caught in the abuse filter does indeed look constructive or at the least made in good faith. Users who have made less than 10 edits cannot edit the userpages of other users due to a global abuse filter (which local admins cannot change); it's meant to prevent accidental changes and vandalism because the userspace rarely needs editing besides its own user, but there are occasionally false positives. As I said, your changes look constructive and I could make the changes for you; however, I really know nothing about that page so I'm going to ping FVbico to make sure everything in there is correct before adding it (for reference, it's Special:AbuseLog/4594091). I'm glad you've decided to contribute to the Minecraft Wiki and let me know if you have any questions! Cheers, --Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 13:29, 28 March 2019 (UTC)
For the entries you tried to remove removed, could you tell why you removed them? (if they’re implemented or removed, you should use the upcoming and until templates (for future reference). If you can tell it for all, I can apply your full edit.
Thank you for wanting to help keep the wiki correct. FVbico (talk) 18:05, 28 March 2019 (UTC)
I checked everything you edited in-game, and your edit seems correct, I have updated the page accordingly (due to checking, I found a few more minor things too).
If you ever want to help out on the parity page again, but it's caught in the abuse filter, just leave a message on the talk page. Thank you for your help, LateLag. :D FVbico (talk) 19:53, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi, I have the same issue! I tried to post a feed about when foxes would come to minecraft xbox one edition, and it called me a new user and won't let me post it.
