Color Change[edit]

I suggest that this be made a yellow or amber color instead of red. At the moment I feel this is discouraging users instead of just giving them fair warning. –The preceding unsigned comment was added by PhonicUK (Talk|Contribs) 17:21, 12 January 2011. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

I second this. --Gnu32 17:51, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
I disagree -- while the original bright red was a bit much, I think it's current color is fine. It needs to be a different color in order to differentiate it from the administrative templates (stub, etc.), and the current pink / light red is enough to attract attention to the warning without making it overly harsh. --Lordebon 19:02, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
Exactly. The template isn't related to any of the other stub/delete/etc. templates at all and the current color seems rather fine. We could, of course, consider lowering the pink/red-ish even more, but personally I think that would cause the template to fade into the background.--Quatroking - MCWiki Administrator 10:31, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Template Protection[edit]

I'd like to suggest this template be protected. There's really no reason for anyone to be editing it. ~Markus talk | contribs 22:32, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Section switch[edit]

May I suggest similar functionality to Template:Cleanup, where using {{disclaimer|section}} changes the wording from The contents of this page... to The contents of this section.... It's a small change, but I have seen the disclaimer used in a few sections and it's just a bit awkward, since the rest of the page is fine. Kanegasi C 09:44, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

Quite unfriendly, and not completely correct.[edit]

This warning seems excessively unfriendly, and I'm pretty sure it's actively discouraging people from working on Mods pages. If we want to ban discussion of Mods altogether, that's one thing, but if we're going to have a Mod section at all, we should do better than a red "you are not official, and you get no support from us". Also, many mods are in fact supported by their authors on the forums, and this should be noted. --Mental Mouse 12:55, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

What that means is the forums in general do not support them. It's to deter people from posting in support or other vanilla forums about mod issues. If you can think of better wording that implies there is a mod forum, but won't take up much space and keep the disclaimer one simple line, then I'm all for it. Addition: Actually, the forums don't allow random help me threads for mods anyways, I do believe. Any mod issues are to be posted on that mod thread. Kanegasi C 19:55, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

IRC?[edit]

Does the IRC part and link still need to be there? Is it still used? david92003 (talk) 09:58, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

Minecraft IRC channel is still in the use, yes. Frisk (Talk page) 10:29, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
