Minecraft Wiki:Pending tasks

From Minecraft Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This page is intended to list tasks that are requested to be done on this wiki, and eventually have a good overview of things that still need to be done. You can create a new task by using the /task template.

You may assign yourself to tasks at any time; only assign others if you see them actively working on them.

Tasks[edit]

Bulk page tasks[edit]

For these tasks a lot of pages need to be edited in a repetitive manner. Where needed, use MCW:Quick reference page as a page guide.

Is there any way to easily find such pages, actually? FVbico (talk) 07:42, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
I'm not experienced in using the "insource" search method. In those cases where it's not feasible to use it, this kind of tasks might need all pages to manually be checked in a predetermined order (for at least some managability). But in this case you might be able to decrease to total count down to just those that are using any of the mentioned templates (use whatlinkshere), if you can't search for related pages. – Jack McKalling [ Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Diamond Pickaxe.png ] 13:43, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
Unassigned User-12316399 again, as they're clearly no longer working on this. FVbico (talk) 07:42, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
All /ID pages should have the table headers corrected. FVbico (talk) 00:34, January 21 2019 (UTC)
Should we actually use "Namespaced ID" instead of "Name ID", in light of the corresponding page? FVbico (talk) 07:42, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
Go ahead, good idea. – Jack McKalling [ Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Diamond Pickaxe.png ] 13:43, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
Alright, I should be mostly done with changing things to Namespaced ID now. FVbico (talk) 09:06, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
Is there any way to easily find such pages with the interwiki links, actually? FVbico (talk) 07:42, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
Maybe a bot could aggregate all interwiki links from our mainspace, dump them on a test page on the actual interwiki they point to, and convert them into actual local links. Then you can easily see if they become red. But that's only part of the problem, they also could be checked for relevance (like do they still link to the correct page). I don't know how to do this or if it's possible. If all else fails, one very tedious approach would be combing through mcw:Quick reference page. – Jack McKalling [ Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Diamond Pickaxe.png ] 13:43, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
This task has become part of a new project: MCW:VC, which is about cleaning up version articles. The instructions of the project regarding this task has assumed consensus from the discussion, so no need to wait anymore. I updated the task description appropriately. Some progress has already been tracked, but there is a huge amount of pages that still need to be processed and tracked. Not sure if this task is still needed separately, but lets leave it just for now. – Jack McKalling [ Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Diamond Pickaxe.png ] 14:31, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

Files[edit]

PancakeIdentity am I correct to think that you're actually doing exactly this? It seems to be looking at recent edits, but just want to be sure. FVbico (talk) 22:22, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
Assigned myself for history merging purposes; assigned PancakeIdentity for moving/tagging for merge. FVbico (talk) 19:00, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

Mainspace pages[edit]

Created pages for 1.1 and 1.2 (the easy ones) – Nixinova Nixinova sig1.png Nixinova sig2.png 03:58, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

Missing bedrock info[edit]

ImakerB just put up the namespaced and numeric IDs, now just the names. FVbico (talk) 14:24, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
You tried to assign ImakerB to this task, but the auto ping got messed up due to sequential edits. – Jack McKalling [ Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Diamond Pickaxe.png ] 14:32, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
 [missing info] List both the negative and positive ID of the 256+ block IDs

This task is unassigned

Official pages[edit]

Sprites[edit]

I still need to learn how to make block renders in order to add to InvSprite FVbico (talk) 08:32, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
For the 300px sprites, download blender, download the file on the mcw:renders page, select the block side texture from under image→source, click render→image, then image→save as image. – Nixinova Nixinova sig1.png Nixinova sig2.png 02:10, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
Cleared because that module it at it's limit, adding outdated content sprites is a bad idea, maybe on a new template. FVbico (talk) 09:39, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
Re-opened, as the module size was fixed. FVbico (talk) 20:00, 3 February 2020 (UTC)
 [sprites] Add missing biome sprites
Posted by: FVbico (07:13, 26 September 2019 (UTC))
This task is unassigned

Templates[edit]

I'm not sure if I agree with this task; on some templates like Template:Mojangsta notice it would be useful to display the template so users can see what it looks like before using it. Though if we consistently showed the template output in the documentation, it might be fine. –Sonicwave talk 02:26, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
Done: {{Guide nav}}. – Nixinova Nixinova sig1.png Nixinova sig2.png 06:34, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
Could you or someone also please add documentation for it? I'd like the doc to specify that only releases may be added to the nav box that have been processed into the guide. This makes those links also double for "what version was this last updated for". Maybe rename the caption also to "Affected" or "Related" releases/versions instead. – Jack McKalling [ Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Diamond Pickaxe.png ] 20:52, 3 June 2019 (UTC)
Assigned dark, he seems to be preparing tests on the nl wiki in their namespace. FVbico (talk) 18:33, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
All done. See #wiki of the Minecraft Wiki and this GitHub repository for the code that it uses. On the topic of implementation - the module indeed passes JSON to the JS upon receiving an API call with a function specifically made for the job. Instead of putting the data on the page itself, it is stored inside the script itself, whereafter the script generates the documentation out of it. Classes, headings and the like behave like usual, it's just the back-end which is different. A compromise I did have to make, however, is that it is now no longer possible to disable the sprite editor without disabling the script which creates the documentation as well. The rationale I used for that is that you don't have to use it even if it's loaded. —DarkShadowTNT (t ♦ c) 02:34, 21 January 2020 (UTC)
 Update the documentation of many infobox templates, as several are extremely outdated.

Assigned myself for now, though I might not work on this consistently. –Sonicwave talk 04:23, 23 April 2020 (UTC)

This page[edit]

Added /task, documentation should be added soon. Feel free to extend it. FVbico (talk) 10:58, 5 February 2019 (UTC)
"Add universal categorization for tasks (in the form of headings) that would help find tasks by type or some other criteria" Isn't the current way this page is divided into headings fine already?
"Eventually move this page, when its purpose gets wiki-wide and this page is more properly formatted, to mcw:Pending tasks" suggested on the talk page now.
"Improve the heading text... a lot, it really needs to be extended, and more professional" This may actually happen once the page is moved, I'm not good at this. FVbico (talk) 07:47, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
For the headings, I had in mind to define them in such a way that the set of them covers all possibilities in a useful distinction. I can't explain that right now, I'll get back on this later. – Jack McKalling [ Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Diamond Pickaxe.png ] 11:34, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
