Strider Jockey

There should be a strider jockey page in this wiki. Also, if you add it, put it in the "Compound" section in Entities.–Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 30 June 2020 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Thanks for letting us know; for now I've created strider jockey as a redirect to the Strider page, so anyone searching for the former will automatically be taken to the latter. I don't think there's enough information about the strider jockey in particular that can't be said on the Strider page to warrant a separate article, but then again looking at other pages like Spider jockey this does seem to be done for other rideable mobs. If you think it should be its own page, I'd recommend starting a discussion on Talk:Strider.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 01:39, 1 July 2020 (UTC)

Nether update biomes

You really need to add the description of the Nether biomes and what they are like you can take screenshots of all the different biomes so players like myself could see what they all look like I have never seen the Nether Wastelands and the basalt deltas I don't even know what they look like. It will be really cool if you added this and Imam a big big Minecraft fan. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Not an an admin, but you literally just need to search for the respective biome by using the search function. We already document all the new biomed. ---- Elite hog (talk) 15:15, 1 July 2020 (UTC)

You've only made a few edits to the Piglin page, none of which cause significant issues. Generally, we only block users if they have repeatedly performed unconstructive edits, and have received multiple warnings. The BlobsPaper JE2 BE2.png 16:05, 3 July 2020 (UTC)

Around the block

There is a new series called Around the block,which circles about biomes,which a page should be added and also on the main page as an article on the main page pls 04:48, 12 June 2020 (UTC)

I'm sorry but your post is not very clear; please be more specific on what exactly this is and how it relates to Minecraft, preferably providing a link to more info about it.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 18:24, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
Sorry for being a little bit late, but I think he is referring to this article published on minecraft.net. Note that, in the meantime, another article of "Around the Block" has been written. Sagessylu (discuss | edits) 14:11, 5 July 2020 (UTC)

Error in Editing Nether Structures

I tried to edit the Structures page by correcting the info on the Nether Fortress and adding Nether Fossils and Bastion Remnants. When I tried to save the changes, it said I had removed a "significant portion" of the page and as a "new" user, it didn't allow me to save the edit. First of all, I did NOT try to remove a large part of the page. All I tried to do was remove a couple incorrect words from the Nether Structures table and add a couple of structures. Second of all, I am not a new user. My account has existed for months, maybe even years, and if I remember correctly, I have made several edits in the past. Please fix this error!

please protect the page, ip adresses are bombing the page with vandalism like look at the history.

Bee page is vandalized

someone changed the health to a big number

Leave it to me! I fixed it. Thanks for informing. 13:45, 11 July 2020 (UTC)
The page was only vandalized by 1 user in a short period of time. We do not need to protect the page unless it gets vandalized repeatedly. The BlobsPaper JE2 BE2.png 22:27, 12 July 2020 (UTC)

If you read the MC earth changelog correctly on App Store. It has a mob not featured here.

Vanilla squid came in 0.20.0 along with albino cows. Please create this page. 05:31, 17 July 2020 (UTC)

Leaves don't display the block loot affected by fortune.

Leaves have extra chances to drop saplings, apples, and sticks with Fortune. Could someone please add them? I've been trying to, but I'm not crazy skilled (I started editing like a week ago), so could someone else do it? Thanks! Yreyot25 (talk) 16:55, 17 July 2020 (UTC)

this should go on Talk:Leaves or Minecraft Wiki talk:Community portal The BumblebeeBee.png 16:58, 17 July 2020 (UTC)

I searched for Panda Plateau and there wasn't a page. ????????????????????????????? I have no idea what you are looking for. There is no "Panda plateau" feature, so we don't need to create a page. The BlobsPaper JE2 BE2.png 17:40, 19 July 2020 (UTC)

Adding talk page for beta 1.3_01 due to discovery

The beta 1.3_01 version page lacks a link to the server.

It is not official, but I found a list of server links including beta 1.3_01's server, and attempted to create the following comment for somebody seeing the talk page to examine further:


I spotted a version 1.3_01 server version (and tested it) at this link: https://sites.google.com/site/mikkelssversionproject/home/server-jar-and-exe-download

There are a several other server versions on this page which I have not tested, but there may be other missing or unlisted servers to be found on this page. --Relinies15710 (talk) 22:38, 20 July 2020 (UTC) Relinies


If this is not a sufficiently verifiable version of the game, I understand, but I wanted to try helping people identify old versions and preserve them as has been done with many others.–Preceding unsigned comment was added by Relinies15710 (talkcontribs) at 22:38, 20 July 2020 (UTC).

I've added your comment to the talk page. Sorry about that; your edit was caught in an abuse filter that is meant to prevent vandalism and spam, but occasionally hits false positives. Thanks for letting us know.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 22:41, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

Protect "Bee"

There are some unregistered users (guest) that always creating vandalism on this page. You can check it. Qaidul250 (talk) 03:23, 21 July 2020 (UTC)


This user keeps vandalizing certain pages after release of block, but this ip address is being blocked 2 times with same reason. -Nashdelacruz25 (talk) 08:20, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

Blocked by AttemptToCallNil. –Sonicwave talk 18:53, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

Change Semi-protection

I want semi-protection to be changed so that users must have made 10 edits and have an account that is at least 4 days old, similar to how it is on Wikipedia. As of now, semi-protection only prevents IP users from editing, and since it is so easy to create an account, semi-protection wouldn't be that helpful if all the recent IP users created accounts. --Fadyblok240 (talk) 01:14, 25 July 2020 (UTC)

 Support All you need is an email, username, and password. By requiring a bit of experience, it would be possible to catch vandals before they edit semi-protected pages. The BlobsPaper JE2 BE2.png 04:17, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
There are technical reasons behind semi-protection preventing only IP edits (something to do with the auth system), and local admins can neither do it themselves, nor, apparently, is such a change possible on Gamepedia at all. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 06:53, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
 Support I will support this change because some user are being vandalizing and an few long-term abuse accounts, also what to being no needed twitch login. Nashdelacruz25 (talk) 00:18, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

About Bedrock 1.16.20

if Bedrock 1.16.2 dont get released please make it a redirect page like Bedrock 1.16 redirects to Bedrock 1.16.0. 20:14, 3 August 2020 (UTC)

1.16.20 will get released eventually, not sure why you think it won't. Also, this page is generally for issues that require the help of an admin. General discussion belong in the community portal. The BlobsPaper JE2 BE2.png 01:22, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

can you please reopen my bug

my bug https://bugs.mojang.com/browse/MC-196972 is not fixed can you please fix this. 09:14, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

The Minecraft Wiki is not affiliated with the Mojira bugtracker. Plus, even the Mojira moderators can't fix the bug and Mojang themselves decide when to fix a bug. ---- Elite hog (talk) 09:20, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
The bug report was resolved not because it was fixed, but because it is a duplicate. The bug that it duplicates is still open, so nothing needs to be reopened. The BlobsPaper JE2 BE2.png 18:52, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
For future reference, requests for the bugtracker should be made on its subreddit or Discord server. As Blobs mentioned, your report was resolved as a duplicate of a still open issue, so nothing needs to be done. –Sonicwave talk 19:08, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
But this is not a duplicate. 00:21, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
It's clearly a duplicate. And also works as intented like why are you asking this, stop✋. Humiebee talk contributions 00:25, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
The screenshot at least shows the same issue as the report it's marked as a duplicate of. The wiki (especially this page in particular) is not the right place to discuss bugtracker issues; please move further discussion to the Mojira subreddit or discord linked above. –Sonicwave talk 00:57, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

Someone removed the old .json code in a tutorial

I was browsing about behavior packs and a way to make one, then I found that the manifest.json example in https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Tutorials/Creating_behavior_packs was very different from the one in resource packs tutorial.

Can you rollback the changes? Btw I already found the right files in Mojang's Vanilla Behavior Pack example, so I can still progress through the tutorial.

Thank you. 15:27, 20 June 2020 (UTC)

Well the page ended up getting semi-protected because people kept removing stuff and adding nonsense, so it isn't that much of a problem. James Haydon (talk) 02:36, 3 September 2020 (UTC)

Finally back / RE Herobrine's page

Hello current Minecraft Wiki admins. I am Kizzycocoa, a former admin for a period of 8 years, if I recall correctly. I've finally regained control of my account following several years of waiting and back-and-forth with the staff. Apologies for the stray comment on the talk page - I am not permitted to remove it it seems. It has been a fair while.

Sadly, the way it has worked out, they've essentially had to fully reset my account. I'm about to go on a soul-search to reacquire old pages from the source code. It is going to take some time I fear, to convert the old HTML to wiki markup.

I had an agreement when I left the wiki team. I would be permitted to make edits to the Herobrine page. I had quite the extensive history there. Now that I have finally regained control, can I have that privilege reaffirmed?

Thanks in advance for your reply,

--Kizzycocoa (talk|contribs) 23:52, 6 August 2020 (UTC)

Great to see you back. :)
The Herobrine page is currently only semi-protected, so you (and any registered user) should be able to edit it, but let me know if you can't (I've also removed the duplicate post on the admin noticeboard talk page, as I presume that's what you wanted).--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 23:57, 6 August 2020 (UTC)
Ah, I see. Opened it to the public? A tad risky, but I suppose by now, the meme has probably died down. Good to hear though, I suppose I only saw I couldn't edit it as I wasn't properly logged in.
Still, thanks for the reply and help! I wish there were some way that Gamepedia would recognise the true age of the account, but eh. I guess this is the best that can be done. All because Twitch screwed up my original account with an auto-deleted account that refused to merge, then GDPR wiped my page away. Bleh.
Thanks again! --Kizzycocoa (talk|contribs) 00:01, 7 August 2020 (UTC)
The protection has been at its current level for a while now and it hasn't received an excessively large amount of disruptive edits. I remember how annoying it was before, where any registered user who wanted to modify the page would have to ask an admin to perform every single edit. And do note that it does still have semi-protection, so anonymous users are still not able to edit it. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Madminecrafter12 (talkcontribs) at 02:11, 7 August 2020 (UTC).

Good to hear. Yes, I recall those days. a lot of fond, and infuriating days. Like when they guy kept spamming "KORN" everywhere. fun times.
Still, good to be back, at least for the moment. Keep up the good work! :) --Kizzycocoa (talk|contribs) 00:14, 7 August 2020 (UTC)

Can't edit the page "Bedrock Dedicated Server" to explain how to fix an issue connecting on a local machine

I am trying to edit https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/index.php?title=Bedrock_Dedicated_Server and add a new paragraph under the section "Connection" to explain how it's possible to connect to a BDS on Minecraft for Windows 10 on a local machine but I get the following as the error message: "Global AF - New user posting suspicious links".

I don't see a point. Especially since inactive subreddits can be claimed by a new admin staff, so inactive means its a bit of a risk. KnightMiner · (t) 01:19, 23 August 2020 (UTC)

Currently, the sprite editor is broken, so I tried to added Broken Anvil manually to {{BlockSprite}} and {{InvSprite}} by editing the module and image, but it didn't work. Sprites from {{InvSprite}} link to minecraft.gamepedia.com/media/4/44/InvSprite.png/revision/latest?cb=20200823200309?cb=20200823200309, which doesn't go to revision 20200823200309, but instead the "latest" revision, which actually uses revision 20200822212120 (static.wikia.nocookie.net/minecraft_gamepedia/images/4/44/InvSprite.png/revision/latest) This means that Broken Anvil for {{InvSprite}} still shows which is replaced with the actual Broken Anvil in the latest revision of InvSprite.png. I'm not sure if that is the problem, but that's what I think might be it. --Unavailablehoax (talk) 08:53, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

I also confirmed that. I thought the reverse proxy server cache was lagging, but it's not going to go away after quite some time. Pneuma01 (talk) 10:07, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

The one reason is that Template:FileUrl, which is used in Module:Sprite, should be updated. revision/latest?cb=.... (which was't returned by {{filepath:...}} before migration, at least I think so) need to be cut off. Then minecraft.gamepedia.com/media/4/44/InvSprite.png?version=... works well.--Chixvv (talk) 12:06, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

It wasn't returned, but it seems versions need to be exact now. Just any version will not work. minecraft.gamepedia.com/media/4/44/InvSprite.png?version=actual_version_but_with_any_changes will show a blank image.
Can we check that all versions used in sprites are valid? --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 12:19, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
Also, the caching issue may be fixable. I'm not sure we should hurry to update a key template in a manner that might break everything and end up useless. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 12:24, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
I don't know why you said the version used in sprites might be invalid. It doesn't need to be completely exact. For InvSprite.png, 20200823200309, 99999999999999, 1598212989555, 1598212999999, etc. work the same now. Template:FileUrl should be update anyway because it can't work properly now, which has nothing to do with caching issue, and simply cutting off revision/latest?cb=.... will not break any existing content.--Chixvv (talk) 13:19, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
Oh, it works? Probably just took too long for me to load at first. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 13:22, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
Do you have some way to also retain support for downscaling images used as URLs? The format of them is /revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/%d?cb=..., where %d is the width in pixels. I couldn't find a way to get a background image both use a scaled-down variant and the version string. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 13:36, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

Now I have no idea. I think we have no way to make it with minecraft.gamepedia.com/media/. How about discarding the parameter of size? Through searching, I found that no page uses this parameter. And if you like, we can also make FileUrl2 a separate template that uses static.wikia.nocookie.net/minecraft_gamepedia/images/ to support for downscaling images.--Chixvv (talk) 15:17, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, I fixed it, the error was in my testing code and not the template itself. I passed the query as the second (size) parameter. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 17:18, 27 August 2020 (UTC)

Protect Piglin

Now the main reason would be the change from hostile to neutral and back and forth.---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 19:29, 25 August 2020 (UTC)


They are hostile because that is their default nature. Baby piglins spawn much less frequently than normal piglins and piglins are neutral if the player is wearing gold armor a very specific term, if we called piglins neutral, why is the drowned called hostile? they are passive during the day, that is why that terminalogy is incorrect, most of the edits that change hostile to neutral are from ip-adrresses so it would be nice to protect it with semi protection.

Suggesting that the categories of "hostile", "neutral", and "friendly" mobs are disbanded due to definition ambiguities with whether a mob is neutral or not. I believe the categories are always replaceable, including by more detailed introduction sections. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 20:00, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

I support demoting citricsquid per reason given by Dhranios.

We got rid of their rights on MCW-EN; just because we do something doesn't necessarily mean all the other Minecraft Wikis need to.

Thee grass texture is overly outdated, switching to the newest grass texture makes the header look a bit weird though. As for the Minecraft Chinese Wiki background, I personally think it's slightly too bright. – ItsPlantseed|⟩ 12:02, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
The grass texture could be tinted to look as bright green. The grass header was actually made in 2012, after grass was made less green since 2010. – Unavailablehoax (talk) 14:23, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

Changes to "Useful pages" list in wiki sidebar

I have two changes proposed to the "Useful pages" list in the sidebar of the wiki to the left, if it is possible to implement.

  1. Change the link texts of "Resource pack" and "Redstone circuit" to plural form, for consistency to the other links in the list and the links from "Popular and useful pages" on the main page.
  2. Exchange some links from the sidebar "Useful pages" and the main page "Popular and useful pages" that one or the other does not already have. I'm not gonna specify any links myself because I haven't thought it through, but you can discuss it if needed.

In my opinion, suggestion 1 should be implemented regardless. 02:05, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

 Done suggestion 1, as it seems pretty straightforward and non-controversial. Doing the later sounds like a good idea to me, but I'd be interested to see what other people think and what exact links should be added and removed to/from both of the lists. --Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 15:46, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

Semi protect Splash

A week ago User:Nixinova protected Splash for a week, but the disruption resumed after the protection lifted, and one anon is currently edit-warring about it. There is talk page discussion about this too, with the anon basically stating an intent to continue disruption. I recommend semi-protection at least until the US federal election is over on 3 November. ~ Amatulic (talk) 23:48, 19 September 2020 (UTC)

Semi-protection would probably not work, they'll just keep registering accounts. Other measures to handle this are being taken. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 00:15, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

Seems like semi protection would have been sufficient to prevent anonymous IP addresses and brand-new accounts from editing. Does semi work differently here compared to Wikipedia? ~ Amatulic (talk) 06:05, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
Semi = registered on Gamepedia, annoyingly.  Nixinova T  C   06:11, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
Huh. Isn't there a means of protection here that imposes an age and activity threshold? On the English Wikipedia where I'm an admin, "semi" protects against registered accounts that are less than 5 days old OR have less than 10 edits. We also have "extended confirmed", which protects against registered accounts less than 30 days old OR have less than 500 edits. And of course full protection. Oh, and there's another one called "pending changes protection" that I rarely use because I regard it as useless; it's weaker than semi, letting anybody edit but not making that edit visible publicly until a user with the "reviewer" right approves the change (as far as I've seen, this protection level just creates more work for others). ~ Amatulic (talk) 06:30, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

Correction, 3 days for autoconfirmed---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 19:52, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

Actually, they changed it to 4 days :P---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 21:50, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
Here on Gamepedia users become autoconfirmed upon registering, so semi-protection allows all accounts to edit. If I recall correctly, you can't directly add a protection level that restricts editing to a custom user group; that is, we would not be able to have autopatrol protection or patroller protection. A possible but not very practical solution would be to use abuse filters. --Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 15:41, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

The Wolf page keeps repeatedly getting bombed by ip addresses

The Wolf page has been vandalized at least 8 times since August. It still keeps getting bombed every few days. Consider semi protecting? Blockofnetherite Talk Contributions 00:17, 21 September 2020 (UTC)

 Neutral, 14 of ip edits are constructive while the other 34 are vandalism, does this warrent protection?---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 19:44, 21 September 2020 (UTC)
A lot of the edits are not necessarily vandalism but rather editorializing and other forms of disruptive edits. There also seem to have been several constructive IP edits in the last month, and the most recent case of vandalism was actually from a registered user, which semi-protection would not be effective against. I'll wait a week or so and if there's a significant amount of disruptive editing by unregistered users in that time I'll protect for a month or so, otherwise leave it alone.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 16:09, 24 September 2020 (UTC)

November 16 update

Looking at the new history of the Wolf page, it seems that 90-100% of the recent IP edits were disruptive/vandalism, and/or unconstructive. It doesn't seem like it is getting any autoconfirmed unconstructive edits, so I recommend semi-protection due to this new ip bombing. Blockofnetherite Talk Contributions 19:19, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

A Weird Situation

Okay so this user named SolidSC had been inactive since Jan 2019 so i replaced his user page with inactive user, and he just logged back in to undo my edit. IDK if he wanted it to be there but it says that users who are inactive for over a year should have their user pages replaced with the InactiveUserpage template. This is a weird situation, any idea on what to do? James Haydon (talk) 03:01, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

I see no reason to blank someone's userpage unless for some reason the contents of their userpage are disrupting the wiki. So basically, unless they are linking a ton of broken files/templates, there is no reason to blank anyone's userpages (and even then, I would hesitate to do it)
In any case, there is no policy that says userpages of inactive users must be blanked. If you want one, go propose it on the community portal. I don't support such a policy though. KnightMiner (t/c) 04:02, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

3 protection requests

  1. Protect Java Edition 1.16.3
    1. It has gotten consistant vandalism since the release of Java Edition 1.16.3 Release Candidate 1
    2. I have requested this in the past with no response.
    3. It has gotten significantly less vandalism ever since the page creation of Java Edition 1.16.4
  2. Protect Java Edition 1.16.4.
    1. Ever since it's page creation, it's been flooded with vandalism.
  3. Protect Java Edition 1.17
    1. It was unprotected becuase most of the page became a transclusion.
    2. However it has recieved a lot of vandalism ever since Caves & Cliffs was protected.

---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 22:28, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

The first page seems to have really died down with the vandalism, so not worth protecting at this point. The second one has a bunch of constructive IP edits and a lot of the recent vandalism is from two specific IPs who were blocked for their actions. I'll keep an eye on it, however; if it gets worse it should probably be protected for a month. The 1.17 page definitely requires protection; semi-protected it for a full three months. --Madminecrafter12 (talk) 12:57, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
