Talk page archive for Talk:Minecraft Wiki - Do not edit this page!


At the discription of minecraft there is a link named "sandbox", but it takes you to the classic page...

Should it link here? Theesexiestman 02:13, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

Yes It should! Although I, and likely you, "Theesexiestman" know as well, some visitors might wonder what the heck it means. -Quoterox

Archive, and editcopy page[edit]

Since the main page has now been updated, I propose we archive the talk page and start afresh, as all the talk that's here now relates to the old page. --DannyF1966 15:47, 3 December 2010 (CST)

I agree, i was going to make a post about adding a Mobs link to the front page as well. Makes sense as there are currently Blocks Items etc, although this doesn't currently fit in the "Blocks and Items" section. I can add it to the new page if this one is archived. --Wzade 15:50, 3 December 2010
There is now the Main Page/editcopy version of the mainpage for you guys to make suggestions for changes to be discussed by the community. You can feel free to edit that page so that people get a clear idea of what you want. Also, discussion about changes should be done on that page's talk page :D -- Wynthyst 19px talk 16:47, 3 December 2010 (CST)
Archive done. And editcopy linked above for permanence. :) Ephemeris 00:10, 15 December 2010 (CST)

2PP Minecraft documentary Link Not on News Section![edit]

We really need to link to to the KickStarter page of the Minecraft documentary:

I agree!!! Vacation9 21:09, 8 April 2011 (UTC)
It has already been "KickStarted". So that would not be a good idea. UGoBoom 16:14, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

How about a link to the mobs page?[edit]

I think we should have a link to the mobs too, they are half as important as blocks. MoonBeans 14:51, 4 December 2010 (CST)

Ditto. I came to suggest the same thing. (See Main Page/editcopy for someone's example). -- Ephemeris 21:02, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
I put the mobs link on the editcopy page... how long does it take for suggestions made on editcopy to filter through to the actual main page? --DannyF1966 03:39, 15 December 2010 (CST)
All has been updated. Thanks Kizzycocoa! -- Ephemeris 17:37, 15 December 2010 (CST)

Survival Test link fail...[edit]

I am pretty sure that Survival Test was removed the 16th December... So why is the link still there on the main page? -- BAMitisME

Did you think to actually click on the link? –ultradude25 (T|C) at 16:20, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Minecraft article, Monobook problems[edit]

We need a page for Minecraft itself, why does it redirect to the main page? Also, the sidebar and the top bar are messed up on Monobook. --Fifteen (talk | contribs) 12:42, 20 December 2010 (CST)

I'm not having any problems with monobook. --TheKax 16:47, 11 May 2011 (UTC)


As minecraft is now in beta, shouldn't we change the things that go about alpha to beta?

Beta has also been updated to 1.1_01. LabGecko talk 18:03, 22 December 2010 (CST)

Beta is now v1.2! VonExis 17:42, 13 January 2011 (UTC)!

1.3 now. :D Gollum999 18:04, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

Yep! ive just been playing beta 1.3, you start with 64 torches(???) a diamond pickaxe, shovel and axe (?????????) a bed (they released beds! and 63 more beds (??????) the beds let you skip till dawn, so, bunker up and get to sleep! im finding out more stuff sooo, wish me luck. iTECHERi

Updates, news and events[edit]

"builts" should be changed to "builds" to match industry standards. LabGecko talk 00:07, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

You know, the news and events haven't been changed since December 22. We should really get around to that.--Jlin8002 07:41, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

How about adding a "What's New" section? For example, beta 1.2 came out today. I'd love to see a summary of all the changes. -- Heynow 23:13, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

With 1.5 out, Weather and Achievements/Stats should probably not be listed under 'future' anymore romnempire 04:54, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

The Game[edit]

I suggest changing:

The player takes an avatar that can destroy or create blocks, forming fantastic structures, creations and artwork across the various multiplayer servers in multiple game modes.
The player exists in the game as an avatar that can create or destroy blocks, forming fantastic structures, creations and artwork with multiple levels of danger to choose from.
Reason: I believe the suggested change is easier to read and more accurately reflects the current state of the game. LabGecko talk 00:18, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

Change of Logo?[edit]

I think the bookshelf block represents knowledge in Minecraft, so possibly we could change the logo to a bookshelf block?

I agree Builder 05:33, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

I disagree. The current logo is fine as it is.--Quatroking - MCWiki Administrator 08:11, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Minecraft Wiki[edit]

Why did this page even get moved to Minecraft Wiki, instead of Main Page like every other wiki? Now when you look at the title it says "Minecraft Wiki - Minecraft Wiki", which just looks stupid. –ultradude25 (T|C) at 02:51, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

I agree. It also broke the directness of my bookmark, and presumably those of other people. I'd support moving it back to the standard wiki title of Main Page. -- Ephemeris 04:25, 1 January 2011 (UTC)
SEO I assume. Ose 08:43, 3 January 2011 (UTC)
This is a search engine assist, especially considering all of the look alike sites that are cropping up. Also, not "every other wiki" has their front page named "main page". Only those that don't know better. -- Wynthyst 19px talk 17:28, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

water mob update[edit]

Hey, im quite confused about the new update that noth confirmed. he said january 03 that he would publish the update next week. but what i wonder is those he mean on monday or any day that week ?

I think we can assume any day that week. SteveZombie 16:56, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
The new water mob is --> New Water Mob (Spoiler). I hope I helped you ;). Kingpowl 19:11, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Small Update[edit]

Hello!! It's necesary to update the Beta version (now is 1.2) on the Main Page.

Thanks and good luck ;). Kingpowl 19:13, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

Okay, now is 1.2_01 Please update it, thanks!! :D Kingpowl 14:15, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

Problem with Monobook skin[edit]

Seems the sidebar and tabs go out of place, but only on this page.

Can someone fix it? It's not entirely vital, it just looks a little odd. Keiji 15:39, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

Price[edit] has the price as €14.95, but the front page has it as €20. The front page should be updated, since is authoritative. --Eskay

Thanks, Ultradude25! --Eskay 11:28, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Native Texture Pack Support Tutorial?[edit]

Maybe a new tutorial should be added detailing how to install texture packs using the native texture pack manager included in minecraft beta.

That's really easy. Just download a texture pack, and drag it into the texture pack folder. Tjb0607 00:08, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Classic Version[edit]

I suggest we remove the current version for Minecraft classic/classic server, only because Notch doesn't even update it anymore.

I'm against this. Its always possible that Notch will someday update classic, if not only for Network updates and some simple performance improvements.--Quatroking - MCWiki Administrator 14:20, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
He also needs to update the Iron Block and Gold Block textures in classic. –ultradude25 (T|C) at 14:34, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Events to the front page[edit]

I suggest adding a link to the :Category:Events section to the front page --Missingpiece 12:55, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

You can make your suggested changes to Main Page/editcopy Though I seriously prefer not having links to categories, rather linking to specific pages. -- Wynthyst 19px talk 13:48, 16 February 2011 (UTC)


Similar to Minepedia repping Minecraft's entry in the Indie games awards earlier, perhaps we should put a note on the main page about the Escapist's developer tournament, and even other such competitions as they arise? Mojang are up against Nintendo and I'd love to see them win!  ANNOYING  00:47, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

Ha. didn't even need it!  ANNOYING  13:58, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Minecraft Wiki ------> Mojang Wiki?[edit]

I know it's a REALLY big change, but maybe changing the Minecraft wiki (as well as the forums) is the right thing to do?

Mojang owns other games, such as Scrolls, and this is ONLY about MineCraft. Sorry! xD --Rocĸetor talk 06:13, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Technically, Scrolls only exists as a developing concept at the moment, I will tell you that Curse is already planning (and purchasing domains) to support it. As Rocketor stated, this is the Minecraft Wiki. -- Wynthyst Image:User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 06:24, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Classic version[edit]

I think that Classic version in Play It! box should not be displayed anymore, because Classic version will no longer be updated.

I agree, please sign your comments with 4 ~s ok? MoonBeans (u-t-c) 15:24, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

Login Errors[edit]

Today, I came home from school expecting to have a wonderful little minecraft session on a server my friend had just set up. To my dismay, Minecraft would not let me even log in! Please help I have a Mac running OS X 10.5.8

Chances are you got a pirated version of MineCraft; why would you buy MineCraft for your School Computer? I did that and a teacher deleted it from my computer (and trash).

You probably have the screen where it says 'Username' but not 'Password'. You need the one with password to log in.

Note: I have a Mac OS X 10.5.8 too. Rocĸetor talk 06:16, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Currently 666 articles[edit]

Is this some kind of joke or is this true?--Chrunchstick 22:25, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

These are our actual stats, yes.--Quatroking - MCWiki Administrator 23:16, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Current MineCraft beta version[edit]

on the mainpage should be changed to 1.4. It's coming out in less than four days according to Notch. Rocĸetor talk 06:17, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

It will be changed when it actually comes out. And you should put your change suggestions on Talk:Main Page/editcopy. -- Wynthyst Image:User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 06:28, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
Ok, thanks; just wanted to point it out. Rocĸetor talk 06:36, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

future removal[edit]

can we remove the future things as notch has updated minecraft and the things are included. only the petdogs thing.--Taco1945 21:36, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Official Wiki Youtube page[edit]

This is needed badly. Every time a new update comes out dozens of people rush to add their videos to the articles to get views for their channels. We need to have an official wiki channel that an admin would run and a rule that videos can only be added if they are by this official channel or a Mojang staff member. This will prevent the rush of low quality videos and edit wars by users trying to get views.

EDIT: Also some videos have no place whatsoever, offical wiki channel or not. I had to remove a crappy video of a tutorial on how to craft cookies. --Moxxy 00:18, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. Now I can edit it. You should tell that to the new users. --MrZalli 17:28, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
We have, repeatedly. It's even in the autoconfirmed users group page. And I'm adding it to the users group page as well, but there will still be people not thinking to look at their user group... what more can we do? –ultradude25 (T|C) at 02:25, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

Minecraft Teacher[edit]

I just found out there is a teacher who uses Minecraft to teach his 1st grade class how to use computers. Check this out, might be worth mentioning somewhere around the Wiki, in one or two trivia sections maybe... --Katze 500 08:26, 10 April 2011 (UTC)

That's a great blog! Rather than a page just on the one guy, how about a "Uses of Minecraft" page with an education subheading? Pretty sure other people are using it for this. Even if it's only somewhere to collate links I think it'd be a worthwhile read... --Adje 12:07, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

Main Page suggestion[edit]

What about adding a section under "Gameplay" on the main page about the basic keyboard commands for the game. For instance, I played the game for several weeks before I even found out about the F3 key... and only after using that to see where the growling was coming from did I accidentally hit the F2 key. Came here first to look for a keyboard command list when I was wondering if there was a key to hide the GUI. I did a dearch and noticed there IS a page for Controls. Can we add this to the main page for ease?
--Mrurl42 00:47, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

locked chest mod & Romanian Language[edit]

Moved to Community Portal.


we need a new section for player created maps like skylands


1.5 is already out, but I don't see it here...--Jippiedoe 13:47, 19 April 2011 (UTC)


MC Wiki needs a HUGE update, 1.5 is out!!! Everystat13 13:50, 19 April 2011 (UTC)

I don't think it will be a suge opdate, but we should move achievements and weather out of "future". All the achievements have already been listed.

Add Tutorial/Achievement Guide on main page?[edit]

The title pretty much sums it up. --Aza1810 18:41, 19 April 2011 (UTC)


You can delete 'Weather' and 'Statistics and Achievements' from this section. Also, someone could write a news about releasing 1.5. Piotrek 09:12, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

1.5_01 is out![edit]

[1] Piotrek 12:53, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

Making a new page[edit]

We should make a Blacklist of all the users, as well as their IP's of major griefers in the game to make it so that they are pre-banned from most public servers. Anyone wanna help out? I'm just freaking tired of all that griefer crap. Its not trolling. Anyone can do it. It takes no skill. Just a fast clicking finger.

This is not an item for the wiki, please take it to the forum. -- Wynthyst Image:User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 00:56, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

Mods to Modifications[edit]

I keep mistaking "Mobs" as "Mods", so I end up clicking "Mods". It's understandable, but I think "Mods" should be changed to "Modifications" as it's longer and professional-looking. This would also not make it easy to mistake it as "Mobs". Piber20 01:57, 28 April 2011 (UTC)


does any one think it is a good idea to make a section here about what might be in futur updates such as,zombie siege,dragons,pistons,maps,and updates of already existing items like coco beans has people have said it will probably be farmable later on.and teh "discussion"on that page would be use full for detormaning the possability of notch trolling us like with the hotdog idea.any one think this is a good idea? -- SlyRatchet 14:53, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

Yes, a really good idea:Upcoming features -- Oliver Scholz de.Wiki Admin 15:46, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
Man, it's even linked on the page, look closer next time. –ultradude25 (T|C) at 16:27, 1 May 2011 (UTC)


Why doesn't appear {{static link|Minecraft_Wiki/es|the spanish main page of the Minecraft Wiki}} in the languages section at the left? Ryo 22:43, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

Because it's still on the English wiki perhaps? –ultradude25 (T|C) at 22:45, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
Its only a draft, it'll appear in the languages section once it gets separated from the wiki.--Quatroking - MCWiki Administrator 00:17, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Minecraft beta 1.6.4 bugs. There is no map icon, but you can use it and move it in your inventory. Tools sometimes disappear. I lost my iron sword opening a door(not just one time and not just with doors). Does anyone else have the same bugs


1.6.5 is out, needs to be updated--Davidlougheed 19:37, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

Minecraft 1.6.5 is indeed out and the page does indeed need to be updated. Also please sign your comments. There's a button for those of you who don't know what the key is. Krakozhia 18:01, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

Minecraft Demo?[edit]

A demo was released for Minecraft quite a while ago, It may be outdated, but wouldn't it be nice to have a link to give people the sweet little taste that would addict them to Mojang's own personal cube-based narcotic? --Chlikikijeelgus 08:17, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

Uh.. have you even looked at the front page? –ultradude25 (T|C) at 08:30, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

Main Page for Translation Projects[edit]

I joined to assist with the translation in Italian. The problem is that I can not change the templates in "template/it". From what I understand we need to get the domain, for have domain I should translating the main page. The question now is: how to translate the main page for italian project? --RB69q 18:15, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

Small logo/banner suggestion[edit]

I think we should have the banner containing the MCW logo to remove the mirrored logo, and replace it with the unmirrored one. thoughts? --Kizzycocoa 21:07, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

You are welcome to demonstrate your suggestion on the editcopy page and see what people think. That's what it's there for. -- Wynthyst Image:User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 22:39, 30 May 2011 (UTC)
ok, done. thanks for the advice ^^ --Kizzycocoa 22:53, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

XBox release announced[edit]

I would think that would be good to have in the news section as shown on the Everybody-can-edit version of the main page. Davidlougheed 10:46, 8 June 2011 (UTC)

Whats with the huge "Recent Articles" banner on every page[edit]

It looks obnoxious Tinaun 18:48, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

Somehow it messed with the font size for me as well (may be because I'm stuck with IE7 here... stupid work). All the text is ridiculously large now :( --Warlock 19:03, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
Looks like it's still in development, however even if it is fixed so it isn't as big, it'll still feel much too cramped to me (like being on Wikia); so if you don't like it, I recommend you remove it using your userstyle, like I have. –ultradude25 (T|C) at 19:05, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
Well it fixed the text size but not the sidebar. Maybe IE7 is too stupid to render CSS correctly... --Warlock 19:13, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
There was never anything wrong with the text size on the main content area, you were just using an old version of the global vector.css. You need to ctrl+f5 spam a bit to get the stylesheet to update; or more efficiently, spam this page, as that is your direct vector.css. –ultradude25 (T|C) at 19:19, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
Ok, wow, that's kinda bad-ish in Chrome, but it's horrendous in IE. --JonTheMon 19:20, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

Removed it, much, much better. Also, I like the other feautres such as the always open toolbox, thanks Ultradude25. Calinou - talk × contribs » 19:26, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

Official Servers[edit]

I have tried playing on Minecraft servers as most addicted Minecraft users have. Yet I was disappointed by how complicated getting on a server was. The only options were to go on the official website and click multiplayer and get a large black screen or go on youtube, find a ip address try it and get "Bad login". I hope just makes it so that when anyone clicks on multiplayer on the game menu you get a screen showing: A server for english/american people. Then a Dutch/German one and etc. Plus the option the just type in a ip address.

Notch could also add an option to click while on the game multiplayer menu (NOT on the website multiplayer) to play a game like: A. Survival, where it is a free-build Notch built world for everyone where you have to survive. (Notch can decide whether you are allowed to go around breaking houses or not)

B.The Wall break. A server where the game automatically puts you on the losing team to help the team. The teams are separated by a huge wall that is unbreakable and only opens every week. In the mean time each team make a fort or whatever they may think we help them. Each death of a player will make the team lose a certain amount of points until one team won. The would also be an option to become an indian, where you could get access to a way around the wall and attack any team you want with weapons like arrows. –The preceding unsigned comment was added by Additcted (Talk|Contribs) 18:57, 10 June 2011.

Link page to wiki's of likeminded games[edit]


I was thinking, how about we make a page to other, likeminded indy games? There should be one rule: These wiki's should have a similar page with the same links (including this wiki, obviously). Could be the start of a ring-like indie support thing.

I'm posting this message on a number of wiki's, but I won't post other links unless it's agreed we start such a thing.

Minecraft for iOS[edit]

I saw that there were rumors about the Minecraft game was coming to the ipad, ipod touch and iphone... But I dont know about that. In E3 it was announced for Xbox360 and i was guessing if there was going to go for the iOS's.
