I removed your TFF from Redstone Circuits/Latches because, although it might work, the posting seems to be based on some incorrect assumptions. First, 1-tick sticky piston TFFs still work fine -- it's just that some 1-tick pulse generators no longer work (mostly because torches no longer respond to 1-tick pulses, either on or off). Second, this design is not compact, it's rather large (3x6x3 or so -- it's hard to say since you haven't indicated exactly where the circuit begins and ends). The smallest TFF I'm aware of is 1x3x2 (using droppers and hoppers), and there are many other designs smaller than yours.

The forums are a better place to post new designs (also reddit or youtube). You can get some good criticism there. The wiki is more intended to document designs which have proven their worth.

I read your comment and I agree. I only said "Compact" because all the other T-Flip_Flops on the Wiki are all way huge. But thanks for the input. Also I like the way you sign your name. I might just use it now.  :)

Unfortunately, the wiki redstone articles are very outdated (like, mostly designs from 2011). I'd recommend the Ultimate Collection on the forums as it's being actively maintained. Hopefully, someone will update the redstone articles here soon. : )

Yeah. Someone broke down the Redstone Page and completely redesigned it a little while ago, but what you said is true. I'm pretty good with redstone. I'll update the Wiki using the Ultimate Collection, and fill in any gaps.  :)

EDIT: Oh, that was you. LOL.  :)

Screenshot "palette"[edit]

It's helpful for screenshots of redstone structures to choose blocks which can be easily counted and where it's easy to tell which blocks are in front of or on top of which. Bricks have a texture which is deliberately designed for the blocks to blend with the next, which makes this difficult.

When I developed the Redstone Style Guide that I use for screenshots, I chose the Block of Gold as the primary block because it most closely matches the symbol commonly used for blocks in redstone simulation software, and because its texture has a nice edging which makes it easy to count and differentiate.

Of course, this is just an opinion -- you're free to make whatever screenshots you want.

Oh, sorry. I just thought that the brick stood out more with the stone. I'd be happy to revert back to the old palate, and I'll do all of my future circuits that way.  :)

Style guide[edit]

Whew. You had me hopping today. Keep it up!

Okay, I moved the style guide to Minecraft Wiki:Projects/Style Guide/redstone. Style guides don't belong in the main namespace (that's for articles about Minecraft), so I added it to the Style Guide project.

I also removed the notices you added to the redstone articles about them using the redstone style guide. Every article on the wiki is subject to the style guide, but we don't need to link to it from every article. At most we might mention the redstone style guide on the main Redstone Circuits page as an aside (I'm not a big fan of the great big notices at the tops of articles, I prefer quiet sidebars that don't get in the way of your reading the article).

Or something we might consider is linking to the relevant part of the style guide in screenshot captions: e.g., "Screenshot of AND Gate". …Maybe.

I also removed our usernames from the style guide. I included the reference to supuhstar when it was in my own userspace for my own reasons, but now that it's published there's no reason to talk about who created it, or edited it, or whatever -- that's all recorded in the history. The page now belongs to the community, not to us.

Perfectly True. You have a good point. I tend to do things that turn out not to be for the best, and other people change it (But not all the time.) I just wanted people to notice it, so that when they made screenshots of their own, they'd know what to do.
My first few screenshots (this is before I actually read the whole thing) have particles on "All", so the redstone has its particle effects. I'm going to redo them soon.
But don't get me wrong; What you did was fine. As long as you think it's good, I'm fine with it.
