I think this should be deleted due to promotion of griefing. thoughts? --Kizzycocoa 16:52, 15 July 2010 (UTC)
- This tactic is very helpful to builders. In addition, the wiki shouldn't leave out information just because it CAN be used for grief. This doesn't promote grief at all, really. QuinnR 05:06, 16 July 2010 (UTC)
Isn't this like the most basic Idea that comes to the mind of a builder? I knew this trick even before I knew how to craft planks AND even the wiki has rules against the obvious stuff --Vibhor
Many things in the game can be exploited to use for griefing, but it can be used for good purposes as well. Should the article on sponges be removed because people can spam them and suck up the fountains people create? No. The same applies here, in my opinion. Nbord
It should stay. This article should also be expanded to describe how to extend horizontally without falling off edge.--BrewMAJ 19:04, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
Possibly make it a tutorial?
I think it should be in the tutorial category. Thoughts? - Creepers explode, don'tcha know? 01:11, 12 January 2013 (UTC)
This should be called by its most used name.
The instructions in the article did not work for me. I'm a beginner (to most gaming, as well), using Minecraft PC v. 1.8.4. The instructions currently in the article are: Aim at feet. With a material such as sand, gravel, dirt, or any other object you can stand on, hold your "use item" key (default right mouse button). Hold space (to continuously jump).
These instructions indicate that you're supposed to hold dirt (or whatever), stand there, look at your feet, press the use key, then jump. That doesn't work. When you press the use key while aiming at your feet, nothing happens. What did work for me, was jumping, then pressing the use key while in midair. May be outdated instructions, or just written in the wrong order? Either way, should probably be rewritten. --Katerine459 (talk) 02:59, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
