Needs updates for 1.8.3[edit source]

needs updates for 1.8.3+ (I hope I did this right I am new to this whole talk page thing) TheDoctorSoda (talk) 22:40, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Welcome!
  1. This page shows development versions, which are pre-releases and snapshots, and 1.8.3 – 1.8.6 haven't had any of those. So instead of having empty headers 1.8.3 – 1.8.6 here, we just don't have those headers here. Good eye, though.
  2. Looks like you're doing fine with talk pages, only thing is if you click the "add topic" button instead, it lets you add a topic title – which I just put in for you real quick, so it's all set.

Redlinks?[edit source]

Minor issue, but for some reason the 16w05a link shows as a redlink for me [at the time of posting] but the page with the exact name does exist - I have cleared my cache and it still appears. Just wanted to let you know 72.214.181.74 23:12, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

This is most likely because this wiki just upgraded to MediaWiki 1.26, along with the other Gamepedias. There's still some bugs here and there, but the staff at Gamepedia are doing their best to correct the issues. -BDJP (t|c) 23:19, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Snapshot Name References[edit source]

Do we really need a reference for the name of a snapshot? It appears in the F3 screen. – Nixinova (talk|edits) 04:56, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

I think people are just putting the mojang link after the name to get it in there, when it could just go after the whole sentence. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 12:12, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

Add summary to update info.[edit source]

At the moment, updates just say

1.11, the first release of the Exploration Update, is a major update to Minecraft, released on November 14, 2016.

Which is really boring. Why can't we go back to 1.8, where it said

1.8, the first release of the Bountiful Update, added and changed many aspects of Minecraft. Amongst many things, the update made it easier for map makers to create adventure maps, it added many blocks, mobs and a structure for survival play, many commands were added or extended, the world boundary was enforced dynamically, many survival mechanics were changed, spectator mode was added, increased performance significantly and added many options for world customization.

I think that the latter is much better, so you dont have to scroll through the whole list to get the features. A summary would be nice. Thoughts?

That sounds great. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 14:50, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
Should I start to add it to 1.9+? — Nixinova

I say go for it. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 04:56, 14 May 2017 (UTC)

 Complete. View here: 1.91.101.11. — Nixinova

Reorder sections[edit source]

At the moment we have (in order) General, Gameplay, Commands, Command format, World generation, Blocks, Items, Mobs; which I dont think looks very nice. You have to scroll far down to get the new features, and at the top it starts with Splashes, then goes to, Options, etc. I propose we put Blocks, Items, Mobs, and World generation to the top, so you can get the list of new features quickly without having to scroll far down. — Nixinova (talkeditspages) In 1.8, you have to scroll down a quarter of the page before you get 'interesting' features — Nixinova (talkeditspages) 04:38, 19 May 2017 (UTC)

I see that would be an improvement in many cases. But this is prescribed by MCW:Style guide/Versions, so perhaps, propose amending the style guide, on that talk page. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 12:07, 19 May 2017 (UTC)
