Minecraft Wiki Admin noticeboard



The admin noticeboard is one way through which users can notify administrators of issues needing administrative attention. While users are welcome to directly contact specific administrators (especially if they are seen to be active), posting here can be an easier and quicker way of ensuring that at least one admin will notice an issue and respond to it promptly. Remember to sign (using four tildes: ~~~~) when posting an issue.

Before posting an issue here, please consider the following:

  • This page is for reporting wiki issues. Please post any discussions on the community portal talk page.
  • Post only issues that require administrative action, i.e. blocking vandals, protecting pages, restoring deleted pages etc.
  • Do not post deletion requests here; instead, the page should be tagged for deletion.
  • Do not post issues regarding content disputes. Try making a request for comment instead.
  • Mediation requests between users should only be made once a resolution could not be reached between users.
  • For issues regarding the use of this wiki, please see our help center.
  • For issues with filters preventing edits from being saved: filters are not able to be disabled for specific people. However, an admin may be able to perform the edit themselves for you. "New user" filters expire after you log in and make some edits around the wiki.

In case of vandalism, posting about it here is low priority. Revert it first, anyone can do so. If the vandal created a new page, tag it for deletion. Assume good faith and consider leaving a message on that user's talk page to explain the reason. Post here only if the user has made several disruptive edits and/or persists despite a warning. Always avoid a revert war with the vandal; it is far better to wait until an admin has a chance to intervene.

If a user must be reported here, do not create a new section. Instead, add * {{vandal|Example user}} Your concise reason (e.g. vandalised past 4th warning). ~~~~ in the Block requests section.

If a protection or unprotection request must be requested here, do not create a new section. Instead, add * {{pl|Example page}} '''duration (temporary or indefinite) and protection level''': Your concise reason (e.g. constant spam and vandalism). <nowiki>~~~~ in the Protection requests section.

Please post new topics at the bottom of the page by clicking the "add topic" tab above.

Need to be updated Winter wiki.png

I dont think it looks weird, i just think the new textures look too smooth. James Haydon (talk) 19:05, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
Which one are you referring to as weird? I think the winter logo in the English Wiki looks weird. – Unavailablehoax (talk) 03:21, 19 September 2020 (UTC)
Living on the California coast, any "winter" theme logo looks weird. And it would also for the entire population south of the equator. ~ Amatulic (talk) 21:01, 22 September 2020 (UTC)
While it may not be enabled globally for everyone on the wiki, users may still wish to enable such a theme themselves.
Is there any other textures outdated? Such as the dirt/grass blocks on the background and tabs? Dhranios (talk) 14:45, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
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)
Late addition. Semi-protection is back though. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 00:15, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. Amatulic (talk) 00:22, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
Protection is now full until Sep 27, but i think that they will still be coming back. James Haydon (talk) 03:59, 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)

Here or Wikipedia? Autoconfirmation on Wikipedia happens on the 5th day or 10th edit, whichever comes later. ~ Amatulic (talk) 21:45, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
No, it's not 5 days, it is 3, also both are required, see WP:autoconfirm, and I mean wikipedia---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 21:47, 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)
@Madminecrafter12, how did the directors protection come up then? idk if i'm missing something though---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 19:58, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

Block (talkcontribslogsblock log) keeps re-adding a personal off-topic video to Bedrock Edition 1.12.0, and won't stop. I'm not used to the blocking procedure here; are there warning templates we need to apply to a user's talk page before blocking, like we do on Wikipedia? ~ Amatulic (talk) 06:00, 20 September 2020 (UTC)

They don't need to be applied, but there's a list here: Category:Talk page templates#U.  Nixinova T  C   06:12, 20 September 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. The user seems to have stopped. Either they gave up, or saw the note I left on the user's talk page. ~ Amatulic (talk) 06:20, 20 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)

Move File:File 123123.png to File:123123.png

123123.png is a name of ,presumably, screenshot from test of crafting system, founded in Pocket Edition v0.3.0 - v0.3.2 alpha. More about file here: Bedrock_Edition_removed_features#123123.png. Deshman-gpuser (talk) 06:32, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

 Done, but in the future you can actually perform an uncontroversial move such as that yourself; moving a page, unless restricted technically (which does happen occasionally), does not require admin intervention.--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 16:06, 24 September 2020 (UTC)

Protect https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Superflat

Protect it because an IP adress put 30 TheGreatSpring (talk) 11:58, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

Protect 1.16.3

Looking at the edit history of Java Edition 1.16.3, there has been a LOT, and I mean a LOT of vandalism. Can you put semi-protection for like 3 months and move (full) protection for 3 months as well?---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 15:56, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

I recommend only 1 month, but ok--TreeIsLife (talk) 15:57, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
Well... ever since Java Edition 1.16.3 Release Candidate 1 was released, that page has been flooded with vandalism so I guess maybe 1-3 months but still, put move protection as it has been moved before.---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 15:59, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

Protect Version history

I don't mean the disambig page, I mean Java Edition version history. Like it's dev subpage, it gets flooded with vandalism, can the page be re-indef protected? It's subpage got protected until 2021 for repetative inclusion of 1.17 versions however the same is happening to the parent page, please protect.---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 22:06, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

Prevent ip's from creating blank (talk) pages

I've seen 3 cases in the past week in which an ip just created a blank page, can you restirct this so that even new users can't do this as well (most likely an abuse filter that should do this)?---Humiebee Discuss anything with me Look at my edits 01:45, 3 October 2020 (UTC)

 Support. --Robotkoer (talk) 20:01, 3 October 2020 (UTC)
 Support semi-protect. There are a couple of sections on Talk:Caves & Cliffs proposing semi-protection from users who don't know to post here. The comment from one anonymous IP editor, saying that he'd rather lose access than endure the vandalism, is telling. Amatulic (talk) 20:22, 6 October 2020 (UTC)
 Support Anon user that Amatulic mentioned beforehand (I need to get an account at some point :P), would like to point out semi-protecting Caves & Cliffs page would also help with the unnecessary speculating. Some of it is fine, but this is a wiki. Also, thanks Amatulic for pointing out where I was supposed to go! 22:42, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
 Support Yes I agree, as one of the main editors on the Caves & Cliffs page, it would be quite helpful to semi-protect it.-Robonate135 (T C) 18:47, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
 Support Humiebee (talk) 19:52, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
 Support, there are so many low quality edits and personal speculation, which are a hassle to go through because of how many edits are made. Semi-protection would definitely filter the spontaneous editing from many anonymous users.  – Unavailablehoax (talk) 16:33, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

Disruption by (talkcontribslogsblock log) keeps adding malformed sections full of redlinks and demanding that others clean it up.

Remove protection from some old pages

These two:

are currently protected at admin level, unlike all other Issues pages. As such, neither the main nor talk page are editable and therefore I can't place an unprotect request template on the talk pages. Can the protection be removed from both of those? (It's already been pretty well established that removing protection from archive pages doesn't result in them receiving copious amounts of vandalism - from my memory no archive pages unprotected have received any disruptive edits at all, only maintenance edits, and there have been many cases of talk archives being without protection at least as far back as 2013 with no problematic behaviour occurring whatsoever.)

Caves And Cliffs Work In Progress pages

I've been making pages on the Caves And Cliffs update, and I understand why they shouldn't be linked on the main Caves And Cliffs page. However, I feel that there should be a way to access work-in-progress pages on the caves and cliffs update.

WIP versions are on the redirect pages, such as Warden, just return to the warden page, and edit the info below the redirect. These pages are hidden, as per wiki rules, they shouldn't have articles yet until they appeared in public development versions. Dhranios (talk) 20:51, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

It's probable that because he was the founder of the entire Minecraft Wiki he was given bureaucrat rights on several or all of the Minecraft Wikis by default. I've asked a staff member to revoke his bureaucrat rights on MCW-NL. --Madminecrafter12 (talk) 13:02, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
citricsquid founded the Minecraft Wiki (English, German and Dutch). While the English and German wikis demoted him some time ago, the Dutch wiki did not. I would leave the decision to the local administration of the Dutch wiki though. MarkusRost (talk) 13:56, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
Being one of the two admins there, I'd say go and demote him, being the founder is no reason for excluding them from the permission loss from inactivity rule. You should make Dark a beaurocrat then. Dhranios (talk) 14:01, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
I support demoting citricsquid per reason given by Dhranios. I wouldn't be opposed to gaining the bureaucrat role, but I do have to note that I am fairly inactive due to a general change of focus mostly away from Minecraft and towards Yellowstone (which may have been induced by Fandom acquiring Gamepedia). Occasionally I do get the itch to do something (such as fighting Lua again in drafts :P) and I keep an eye on the recent changes regularly. DarkShadowTNT (talk) 15:42, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
I mean, Dinoguy1000 and Majr were both beraucrats but we were able to get rid of their rights, so it makes sense that we should do the same to Citricsquid. James Haydon (talk) 16:07, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
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. Either way both of the admins of MCW-NL agree to demote him, so it should be fine to carry it out (I've notified Markus again). --Madminecrafter12 (talk) 16:25, 23 October 2020 (UTC)

Block GangsterRap1990's (talkcontribslogsblock log)

The person keeps randomly removing massive chunks of Bedrock Edition and is most likely the same person as Davidfamily15 (talkcontribslogsblock log) and AndroidGamer545 (talkcontribslogsblock log), as they all have mobile edits and each account starts to vandalize after the previous account stops. – Unavailablehoax (talk) 15:02, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

A CheckUser check (not by me) confirmed all three are the same person, so I blocked the two not-blocked ones indefinitely. --AttemptToCallNil (talk) 17:23, 20 October 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.

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)

More v’s

I appreciate that the launcher has versions from older times, but it’s easy to notice that you haven’t added all of them. Can someone tell Mojang that they need to add all the rest of the versions to the launcher? 23:40, 22 October 2020 (UTC)

Maybe they weren't even able to because they lost them, or whatever. Anyway, the Minecraft Wiki and the immense majority of its editors don't have privileged connections with Mojang staff, so we can't really help you with this.
P.S: Just to clarify: as Minecraft maniacs, we would love Mojang to make older versions public if they can, but I'm afraid we can't really do anything about it. Sagessylu (discuss | edits) 12:41, 23 October 2020 (UTC)

Maybe they can recreate versions older than rd-132211, and for other missing versions just add new features to the previous version(or the version before that if the previous version is also missing 11:57, 24 October 2020 (UTC)
