Strider Jockey[edit]

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 108.195.126.69 (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[edit]

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 151.230.141.182 (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)

I want to be blocked. how?–Preceding unsigned comment was added by 49.146.47.22 (talk) at 01:27, 1 July 2020 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

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[edit]

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

138.19.0.177 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[edit]

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! ISawHerobrine457 (talk) 23:05, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

Ravager[edit]

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

Bee page is vandalized[edit]

Leave it to me! I fixed it. Thanks for informing. 220.129.30.33 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.[edit]

Vanilla squid came in 0.20.0 along with albino cows. Please create this page. 188.120.87.87 05:31, 17 July 2020 (UTC)

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

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)

Panda Plateau doesn't have a page.[edit]

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)

As a general rule, Minecraft Dungeons content has its own namespace, since it is not part of the main game. The BlobsPaper JE2 BE2.png 17:47, 19 July 2020

Adding talk page for beta 1.3_01 due to discovery[edit]

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). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

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"[edit]

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)

Block 73.222.70.38[edit]

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[edit]

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)

ppppllllease add recent news and version number for minecraft earth[edit]

block https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/UserProfile:Prince_vegeta356[edit]

they have extremly disruptive edits and ive consistantly reverted them, please block. Also they tried threatening me on my talk page, i reverted the edit though. They did it 3 times now and they are being toxic.Humiebee (talk) (contrib) 00:12, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

also, can you block the https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/UserProfile:ThePrinceOfAllSayinsIsBack? They are a sockpuppet of Prince_vegeta356. The link below says why. Also, look at the controbutions of both, the exact same.Humiebee talk contributions 23:46, 3 August 2020 (UTC)

Please block 2.133.167.172[edit]

2.133.167.172 has done vandalism on the page 1.16.2. he/she wrote down the release date as August 4 2020. 49.146.34.113 06:38, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

They seem to have stopped for now, will block if they continue.  Nixinova T  C   08:28, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
They continue to vandalize the page. 49.146.42.113 01:23, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
They haven't vandalized in several hours, but since they did 2 days in a row I've gone ahead and blocked them for a few days. Thanks.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 01:26, 3 August 2020 (UTC)

About Bedrock 1.16.20[edit]

if Bedrock 1.16.2 dont get released please make it a redirect page like Bedrock 1.16 redirects to Bedrock 1.16.0. 77.241.128.250 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[edit]

my bug https://bugs.mojang.com/browse/MC-196972 is not fixed can you please fix this. 49.146.42.113 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. 49.146.42.113 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[edit]

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.

181.191.148.4 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[edit]

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)

Piglin Brute page was vandalized earlier today[edit]

Due to repeated vandalism by ip addresses, I suggest that that page should be semi-protected for a week. Blockofnetherite (talk) 16:31, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

 Oppose despite it being bombed with vandalsim by ip adrresses, there are still some that do good edits and it only gets vandalsized like twice a day.---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 18:46, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
 Comment Okay, that makes sense. Still unsure if the page should still be protected. We'll see. Blockofnetherite (talk) 02:02, 13 August 2020 (UTC)

ip-addresses keep putting fake release dates with no source so like please protect, also make a filter that prevents new people from editing as new accounts also put fake release date. ---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 21:14, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

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

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". Everything after this sentence is exactly what I wanted to post to the page (I had to separate the offending URL with spaces and replace the "."s with DOT but if you go into the editor you can remove the spaces and replace the dots to see what I was trying to reference):

By default Minecraft for Windows 10 does not support connections to a server hosted on the same machine (where you connect via 127.0.0.1/localhost). To fix this you must launch Windows PowerShell as an administrator and run the following[1]:

Should we keep reddit communities on the main page of no-longer-supported platforms?[edit]

For example, the one for Xbox 360 Edition. Should it stay on the main page, or be kept? Blockofnetherite Talk Contributions 01:04, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

 Delete those subreddits are highky inactive and unused.---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 02:22, 22 August 2020 (UTC)
I think maybe we should keep it as it would be a nice relic of an older time. James Haydon (talk) 18:30, 22 August 2020 (UTC)
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)
So someone else or some people could claim that entire subreddit because it was inactive??? James Haydon (talk) 03:12, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

Are APNGs no longer supported ?[edit]

APNGs used to animate if you didn't reduce or enlarge their size. However, this is no longer supported. Should we change these backgrounds to white and convert them to GIFs? Pneuma01 (talk) 06:47, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

Sprites can't be updated[edit]

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)
I edited it, and it seems to work--Chixvv (talk) 14:25, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
Now it stopped working if a query is specified. I added a test case to the docs. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 14:28, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
Gotta say i like that banner pattern . James Haydon (talk) 15:12, 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)
InvSprites should be fixed. Modules should return back to using version for images. Enjoy your broken anvils. (: --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 17:21, 27 August 2020 (UTC)

Protect Piglin[edit]

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)

Hostile[edit]

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)

Add link option to Module:Iconbar[edit]

A false information on Bedrock Edition removed features[edit]

In Bedrock Edition Removed Features page, there is a false information that you can no longer sprint on water.

1.17[edit]

we need a page on 1.17, due to the fact that we have a page for 1.16 and before. We had a page for 1.16 when we were in 1.14 so why not now?
