"Test the latest development snapshot!"[edit]

I suggest to make a tutorial on the wiki how to play on the snapshots with the new launcher. --

This page belonging to a user has been blanked.
This has most likely been done due to the presence of broken links on the page (due to either link rot or outright linking to nonexistent pages), as well as the inactivity of said user (defined as no edits since August 1, 2018, although exceptions can sometimes be made).
If you are the owner of this page, then you can revert this blanking by going into this page's History tab, and then reverting the blanking edit(s).
However, keep in mind that it is your responsibility to make sure links continue to point to the pages they are intended to.

Replacing Texture Packs with Resource Packs[edit]

I think that, since texture packs are now obsolete, shouldn't we replace the Texture pack link with Resource packs? It would make sense since there is no real need for Texture packs anymore. Warpshard 22:16, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

No. Texture packs can still be used for 1.5.2, which is in the launcher, so it really isn't obsolete and shouldn't be redirected to resource packs. -- 01:50, 21 August 2013 (UTC)

Capture the Flag[edit]

Zombie mob spawner item ID??[edit]

You cannot place a zombie spawner without mods or hacks. If you want to place one, I recommend getting tekkit and putting the map on it, placing a zombie spawner, then putting the map back in normal minecraft. And please sign your comments with 4 tildes (~) or pressing the button with a signature on it.-- 01:03, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Insomnia Minecraft Expo UK[edit]

I think there needs to be info one this somewhere, As Dinnerbone is going along with Curse and a bunch of celebrity individuals. so.
Website: http://insomniagamingfestival.com/whatson/whats-on-minecraft/
SO shoud there be a Insomnia Minecraft Expo UK page?--007a83 (Talk|Contribs) 19:54, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

No; the wiki doesn't document the fan community. Curse staff and 'celebrities' aren't considered important, and Dinnerbone is only listed as being in the 'meet and greet' event, not speaking on any of the panels. If it's not in-game content or directly connected to Mojang (as Minecon is), it doesn't belong here. -- Orthotope talk 10:30, 23 August 2013 (UTC)
ok. That is why I asked, I was unsure. I was thinking the same thing, But wanted to make sure.--007a83 (Talk|Contribs) 18:08, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

News: Minecraft 1.6.4[edit]


Minecraft Version 1.6.4 has been released, I suggest adding it to the news section:

  • September 19, 2013 - Minecraft 1.6.4 released.

Also, I'm an admin on the dutch wiki, and I think that you can trust all admins on all the language wiki's, otherwise they didn't become admins. Could we get some sort of rank that we can edit pages like protected templates? I know that it's a lot I'm asking for, and I understand if this wouldn't be possible, but sometimes it is really annoying you have to ask an english admin to add a simple language link.

-- TheWombatGuru t | c NL Admin 11:11, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

I think we should change admin protections to directors protections, since all language admins are in the directors group. However, it doesn't seem to show up on the list any more... MattTalk
– 19:28, 22 September 2013 (UTC)
The directors right would need to be added to $wgRestrictionLevels; probably a low priority for Curse right now. -- Orthotopetalk 19:42, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

Don't forget to remove the cost in Microsoft Points. That is gone and it's now replaced by Local Currency. 1,600 Points equals to $19.99. I also edited that in the main page for the 360 Edition. --Newyorker20103 (talk) 00:44, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Updates And Dragon eggs[edit]

The Ender Dragon egg seems useless for now, but have you heard? Jeb has come up with a red dragon hatching from the egg and follows you around! And you MIGHT be able to die it colors with dies. Jeb was not as famous as Notch, but now, he will get a LOT more credit. Jeb is responsible for this. This new feature will be in update 1.8.0! Sorry that it will take that long to add that! But still this is very amazing! And 1.7.0 is now about to be here in 2013! This update is the next right after 1.6.2, it adds new biomes, and flowers I heard. And this might not be that much! And do you have a texture creator app? Well if you see a dragon texture (just regular dragon) you will notice there is no regular "dragon" in minecraft yet! That is a sign of the new update in store! And its gray! Not red! So that means it could be died colors as well! It could be, or it could not! Lets find out soon...

"Myths" Page[edit]

I suggest maybe a "Myths" page for a list of the commonly known myths and information about them like "Squids are attracted to light.", "Sugarcane grows the faster on sand.", etc. J192 11:36, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

I think this would be a good idea, but we're not allowed to make pages based on community icons or other thoughts. (except for Herobrine -- TheWombatGuru t | c NL Admin 12:53, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
I'm talking about myths that are usually told and believed, like sugarcane growing faster on sand. J192 10:59, 5 October 2013 (UTC)
I understand, but if it's not really the case it doesn't belong on this wiki.-- TheWombatGuru t | c NL Admin 13:00, 5 October 2013 (UTC)
Depending on how it's written, this could easily fall afoul of wiki rule #7. The only way I can see it working is if it's set up as a 'debunking myths' page, but even then it would be a target for rumors and misinformation. -- Orthotopetalk 20:56, 5 October 2013 (UTC)


Random Page[edit]

Where did the random page button go? I used that thing all the time. Dragon29 29 (talk) 23:23, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

It's useless on this wiki because it returns junk pages most of the time, thus it was removed from the sidebar. If you wish to try your luck you can still access it from the list of special pages, or directly. MattTalk

Links to pages in wiki[edit]

The pages such as Special:SpecialPages, templates and the categories can not be accessed without actually knowing they exist and their URL. I spent ages yesterday trying to get back to the special pages but I couldn't remember the namespace or format(SpecialPages or Special_Pages) . There should be links to these somewhere on the main page. 19px Lennbot 19px (talk - contributions) 09:37, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

New Layout[edit]

Hi there,

I think the new layout of the main page is hideous, it's harder to find stuff and links are everywhere... This is my opinion though, how do you guys think about it? -- TheWombatGuru t | c NL Admin 10:36, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

I'm not sure about it either. The bit at the top is quite nice, but the rest is a bit strange. I can't remember exactly what it looks like, as it looks more or less the same as before on my phone. 19px Lennbot 19px (talk - contributions) 08:16, 22 October 2013 (UTC)
I liked how the bit at the top, was on the bottom in its own cube thing, but maybe I just have to get used to it. -- TheWombatGuru t | c NL Admin 09:49, 22 October 2013 (UTC)
Maybe if there were more visual representations instead of plain links? I think that'd help, especially for handicapped viewers, but for everyone else as well.

More Wiki Languages[edit]

I've seen there are 11 Languages in the wiki; Deutsch, Español, Français, Magyar, Italiano, 日本語, 한국어, Nederlands, Polski, Português do Brasil, Русский & 中文 but in Minecraft there are 66. I'd like to add a language, Euskara, which is also in minecraft. Camareri (talk) 09:31, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

All languages that are in-progress but have not gained their own sub-domain are listed in Minecraft Wiki:Projects. If your language isn't there, start a project! 19px Lennbot 19px (talk - contributions) 10:48, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
Where can I make the Minecraft Wiki:Projects/Basque translation page? An article means a new page? Thanks for the answer :D Camareri (talk) 11:34, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
Just follow this link and put all necessary information, such as language, extension, etc, and then start translating. To make a translation of cobblestone, got to Cobblestone/ba(or other extension) , copy-paste in everything on the Cobblestone page, and start translating. 19px Lennbot 19px (talk - contributions) 13:17, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

I have been able to see sound players on the Minecraft Wiki, but recently it has stopped working. An example is the page

"Sorry, your browser either has JavaScript disabled or does not have any supported player. You can download the clip or download a player to play the clip in your browser."

When I select to get a player I get told that Chrome has native support for it.

Minecraft wiki app[edit]

Bbscraft (talk) 23:19, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
