Disruptive editing on Bedrock Edition 1.12.0 (adding release dates without sources), my talk page, and the user's own talk page. -BDJP (t|c) 17:36, 5 July 2019 (UTC)

Main page[edit]

The development Java version was not updated (still states 1.14.4 Pre-Release 2). Minhngoc25a (talk) 06:19, 9 July 2019 (UTC).

Now fixed by User:FVbico. – Jack McKalling [ Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Diamond Pickaxe.png ] 10:20, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

Woohoo! It works[edit]

Ever since I started working on this wiki, I have sorely missed the "navigation popups" feature available in the user preferences on the English Wikipedia (it's in Preferences > Gadgets > Browsing > Navigation popups). I've been frustrated that no such setting exists here. I find it an incredibly useful feature, letting me browse the recent edits to pages in my watchlist without actually having to open the pages to view the diffs.

Well, reading the documentation page Wikipedia:Tools/Navigation popups I experimentally inserted this code into my common.js page:

// [[Wikipedia:Tools/Navigation popups]]

And it works! I'm happy now. I can hover over diffs in my watchlist and review them without opening the pages. The only thing it's missing is a "patrol this edit" feature in the actions dropdown, but everything else is there: watch, unwatch, revert, thank, etc.

I hope to see a setting for this in the user preferences. I have no idea where to propose such a change on this wiki, so I'm proposing it here. ~ Amatulic (talk) 20:44, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

This page is for requsting "issues that require administrative action, i.e. blocking vandals, protecting pages, restoring deleted pages etc."Please DO NOT send this message here.You can share anything in your userpage.--Dianliang233 talkcon 08:34, 7 June 2019 (UTC)
This is relevant to this page because an admin is required to add these styles. Please leave page moderation to the wiki admins. – Nixinova Nixinova sig1.png Nixinova sig2.png 08:36, 7 June 2019 (UTC)
Right, that's why I posted it here. I could not find another venue on this wiki. @Dianliang233: my user page isn't an appropriate place to suggest a global improvement that needs administrator attention. ~ Amatulic (talk) 20:13, 7 June 2019 (UTC)
I would support adding such a gadget. Several other users have stated that they support such as well on the MCW Discord (although it would probably be better if they comment here as well). I'll import the navigation popups myself and see if there are any problems.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 13:27, 7 June 2019 (UTC)
Installed. Played around with it a bit and it looks fine to me.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 13:36, 7 June 2019 (UTC)
Installed? Should a setting appear in my preferences? I don't see it.
No big deal for me since I got it working anyway by adding a line of javascript, but others might find it a nice feature to have available in user prefs. ~ Amatulic (talk) 20:13, 7 June 2019 (UTC)
Sorry, by "installed" I meant in my own common.js, although I think it would be safe to go ahead and add it to the gadgets definition page now. The only question I have is, how would we import it? Would we just create the gadget page for the navigation popups which just contains the importation of Wikipedia's navpop? Would we copy Wikipedia's version onto the gadget page here? Or is there a way to import an external gadget directly from the gadgets definition page (meaning that we would not need to create a new page for the gadget)? The first option makes the most sense to me and would be easy enough to do. However, if we went with the first or third option, we wouldn't be able to modify the gadget if we wanted to add anything MCW-specific. --Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 14:35, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
Don't use the first option. We need the souce of the gadget, not just the line to import a script. You can import a script safely from our own wiki, but don't import external scripts. That is dangerous. Gadgets can be exported from the source wiki, I used that for one of the gadgets here for my own wiki as well. Works just like importing pages, but export from this page: Special:Gadgets (on wikipedia, if they have the source code there). – Jack McKalling [ Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Diamond Pickaxe.png ] 21:38, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
I forgot Special:Gadgets existed, thanks for pointing that out! I'll go ahead and import it today, then.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 19:08, 13 June 2019 (UTC)
I have imported the script. Amatulic it should now appear in the gadgets section of your preferences.
I do see some coding that appears to be specific to Wikipedia on MediaWiki:Gadget-popups.js, so that should probably be modified to accord with the Minecraft Wiki or be removed altogether. I would do so myself, but I know very little JS.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 19:47, 13 June 2019 (UTC)
Excellent, thanks. I removed the javascript from my common.js page and turned on the gadget, and it's working fine.
Now if only someone could figure out how to add patrol / unpatrol in the 'actions' drop-down menu.... ~ Amatulic (talk) 19:57, 13 June 2019 (UTC)
There actually is code in there for patrolling, however I don't know how it works. I asked User:Majr for help with the gadget. – Jack McKalling [ Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Diamond Pickaxe.png ] 13:42, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
@Amatulic: the code wasn't working, but Majr fixed it for us. – Jack McKalling [ Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Diamond Pickaxe.png ] 08:25, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
@Jack McKalling: Thanks... but I don't see any option for patrolling appear in the actions menu for me. I tried reloading the page with cache clearing and that didn't help. ~ Amatulic (talk) 14:21, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
The link is not in the actions list, but on the popup itself. It seems to me though, it doesn't always appear. Maybe it doesn't work for the latest revision of a page. – Jack McKalling [ Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Diamond Pickaxe.png ] 14:34, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

That explains why I haven't seen it. The "mark as patrolled" link doesn't appear on any patrollable diff in my watchlist, which is where I'd use this function the most. It seems to work on the article history display, even for the newest revision, and it appears unpredictably on patrollable diffs in the Special:RecentChanges page. ~ Amatulic (talk) 17:33, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

The script can show the patrol option on prev diff links on the recent changes and page history (with the revision patrol gadget loaded) only. I'd actually forgotten about the watchlist as I haven't used it in years, but it looks like it shows unpatrolled status too, so assuming the selector is the same it should work. MajrTalk

And I just enabled it for diff links as well. MajrTalk
08:07, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
Excellent. I see the patrol function when browsing my watchlist now. Thanks. ~ Amatulic (talk) 20:26, 9 July 2019 (UTC) (talkcontribslogsblock log)[edit]

Rename Village Mechanics Tutorial[edit]

This one is self explanatory, i think that Village Mechanics sounds like a tutorial for modders, and not an essential tutorial. villages have slowly been becoming more important, and as of 1.14 are a central fixture of gameplay, so just rename it to Tutorials:Villages. (note i am about to do a minor overhaul of the tutorial page to give it near top billing, and by the time you read this i probably already did) 8nobodylikesfortnite8 (talk) 12:49, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

Help needed with tutorials link table[edit]

(note: the thing generating at bottom of tutorial pages with all the links to other tutorials)

Did that overhaul i just talked about under rename village mechanics, was not able to put it on the link table (maybe you need admin to do it i forget) i am having issues with the editor so i would appreciate admin help. note: copied links are intentional as the links fall under more than one category, so i just copied them to avoid confusion, and the same needs to be done on the link table. thank you for your time. 8nobodylikesfortnite8 (talk) 01:49, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

You don’t need to be an admin to edit the navbox. You edit Template:Tutorials.
Also, please use “Add topic”, don’t just put your section in the middle of the page. The BlobsPaper.png 03:09, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

Aww man[edit]

As I am writing this, there's a mini edit war on the [[Aww Man]] soft redirect page, created/perpetuated by User:‎Theguy5644464049. 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 11:10, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

The page is a reference to a meme frequently spammed on Minecraft Discord servers. Deleted and protected from creation. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 11:33, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

IP vandalism on Enchanting[edit]

Could someone semi-protect the Enchanting page? The BlobsPaper.png 14:19, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

Sure, semi-protected for a couple of weeks.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 14:45, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

I'm trying to make a hopefully usefull page as a new user[edit]

I was making a page and it was dissallowed up as soon as I save it. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 16:17, 19 August 2019 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

There is an abuse filter that prevents most page creation by anonymous users. If you want the page created for you, please tell what page you were trying to create. If you plan to make additional edits to the wiki, you may wish to create an account. The BlobsPaper.png 16:26, 19 August 2019 (UTC)
I explained why such a page as you wrote it doesn't really belong as a page on this wiki here.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 16:34, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

Honey farming[edit]

I can't create a honey bottle farming page! –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Superspyuu911 (talkcontribs) at 0:54, 23 August 2019 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Tutorials should only be created as a subpage of tutorials: tutorials/Honey farming. Try to create that page and see if it works.  Nixinova T  C  00:59, 23 August 2019 (UTC)
