Hello everybody! I have been a fan of Minecraft for a long time, and in late September of 2017, I decided to start editing pages on the Minecraft Wikipedia. On November 19, 2017, I decided to become a user. I am always happy to add to or edit the Minecraft wiki, so if anybody has anything that needs to be done, I'd love to help. Also, I recently started the page User:Madminecrafter12/MCW Records, and anyone can edit it, so if you have a record you want to chip in or some of the information on the page is wrong, edit away! (Just please don't vandalize it :))
My Minecraft name is "benchris," but I decided to go for something different for my Minecraft Wiki username. As a user and a non-user, I have made several hundred edits, and have created roughly 220 pages on the Minecraft wiki (including my user pages, images, talk pages, and redirects). I am a wiki guardian of the RollerCoaster Tycoon World Wiki, and have additionally edited the main Wikipedia, on which my username is SkyGazer 512. The RollerCoaster Tycoon World Wiki right now is at an early stage of development, so if anybody reading this is familiar with the game or just wants to help technically, get in there and start editing!
What I do on the Minecraft Wiki
I am happy to do any task that needs to be done on the Minecraft Wiki, that involves editing, adding, or troubleshooting. Anytime a new update, snapshot, or information about an update is released, I check all of the pages that have anything to do with that update or snapshot, and make sure they are updated.
Basically, I'm open to editing whatever needs to be edited, so if anything needs to be done, please comment on my profile page or on my talk page, as I'll be happy to help. I check the Minecraft Wiki very often, so I will usually respond within 8 hours or so.
The following is a list of any page I've created in the mainspace, excluding redirects.
- Underwater ruins
- Turtle Shell
- Tutorials/Best building materials
- Tag (disambiguation)
- Minecraft Hour of Code
- Tutorials/Pixel art
- Tutorials/Creating shapes
- Tutorials/Gathering Resources in Peaceful Mode
For a full list of all of the pages I've created in all spaces including redirects, as well as pages I've significantly edited, see User:Madminecrafter12/Major contributions.
Here is a list of things I'm currently working on that are not listed as official projects:
- Cleanup articles tagged for cleanup
- Update pages regarding new 1.13 snapshots (it took me a week to update everything as of 18w07a)
- Add images to brighten up pages with long sections of text
- Create redirects that have similar titles to the target page, but do not automatically redirect
- Keep the tutorial page and tutorial template up to date with the new tutorial pages being added
- Fix false or unclear information on pages
- Name things properly reflecting on their new names or in-game names, such as Bedrock Edition instead of Pocket Edition, end crystal instead of ender crystal, and terracotta instead of hardened clay.
- Try to correct links to disambiguation pages, such as linking to Nether instead of the Nether
- Revert obvious vandalism
- Add quotes to pages about in-game features
- Categorize articles, images, and userboxes
These projects I'm a part of are officially listed as projects on the Minecraft Wiki:Projects page:
- File name cleanup
- Screenshot licensing
- Capitalization fixing
- Rewrite for style
- Userboxes standardization
I've edited 4 wikis on Gamepedia:
What I do in Minecraft
I play all different modes and difficulties in Minecraft. I have a peaceful survival world, which is what I often play on, as well as a normal mode Survival world. I also like to build redstone contraptions, houses, roller coasters, and note block songs in Creative mode. Other times, I make parkour courses, containing jumps, tripwires, lava, slime-jumps, and more. When I'm not doing any of this, I just place down random blocks, build random things, and kill random mobs. What I do in Minecraft usually depends on what mood I'm in.
I've always played vanilla Minecraft, but I may try out a few mods in the future. I mostly play on the Java Edition, but sometimes I play the Bedrock Edition on a Kindle. I'm always interested to see when new updates are, and I always try them out as soon as they come out. I've also downloaded snapshots of future updates as well as past updates.
