Je mag me in zowel Engels als Nederlands aanspreken, wat dan ook comfortabeler voelt voor jou.

Recent deletion requests of user pages on the Dutch Minecraft Wiki[edit]

I have decided to not delete the following pages for which you requested deletion:

  1. Gebruiker:STSc/test/vertaalgrid
  2. Overleg gebruiker:STSc
  3. Gebruiker:STSc/test/furnace/Burning time‎

The reason for this is that those are user pages. Even though {{Vertaal Woord}} may be deleted, it is not-done to simply remove that page without the user's consent, in this case STSc's.

STSc's talk page may be misleading for you (and to be honest, so be it), but it is no reason to delete a page. Admittetly, some messages (especially the bottom ones) are from trolls, but still no reason to delete the talk page. Furthermore, it may just be on a good day that STSc will return, finding out some of his/her pages have been deleted for simply the reason that it uses a deleted template and/or for being inactive for too long.

As for the pages other than the talk page of STSc, I think putting {{Vertaal Woord}} between <!-- {{Vertaal Woord}} <reason> --> should solve your issue if you are so desired to keep Speciaal:GevraagdeSjablonen as clean as possible. Another solution could be to put the template's code between <nowiki></nowiki> and with a reason why you did that.

This also means, that if you find any user page using non-existing templates, you simply do the same thing as I described for {{Vertaal Woord}}. --DarkShadowTNT NL Admin (tc) 14:24, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

Ok thanks, that's all OK with me. I agree deleting user pages wasn't really the way to go, but at least now I do know what to do with them. I'll revert the requests now and fix these pages up later. It wasn't so much my intention to keep the WantedPages clean, although it does look like it. I've just been trying to resolve any easily fixed red links, because there are still some around to pages that do exist, but these few were just confusing me (because the template was deleted) and I didn't know what to do with that. Thank you for your insight. – Jack McKalling [ Jack McKalling's User page Jack McKalling's Talk page Jack McKalling's Contributions ] 15:24, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
I've gone through the <nowiki> route with comment on most cases, the red links are now gone on those pages. I hope this works out better. – Jack McKalling [ Jack McKalling's User page Jack McKalling's Talk page Jack McKalling's Contributions ] 10:53, 22 November 2017 (UTC)


Logdotzip might be getting information from Mojang. He has been doing a lot of stuff with Mojang ever since after MineCon

Thanks, I'm aware of that. But that doesn't make him an official source I'm afraid. Doesn't mean he's wrong, but to be safe only use Mojang for references. – Jack McKalling [ User page Talk page Contributions ] 20:25, 11 January 2018 (UTC)

Refactoring project[edit]

I have created MCW:Projects/Refactoring edition specific information as a place to, for now, discuss how to fix the flaws in our current methods of representing edition-specific information. Since you and I seem to be on the same page about the subject, I'd appreciate your input before I publish it on the Community Portal. Do you think we can get enough support for it? – Auldrick (talk · contribs) 17:25, 7 June 2018 (UTC)
