Redstone Dust/Redstone Wire[edit source]

When will these 2 pages be merged? Most people want it and I think it's really confusing. Thanks. TheWombatGuru 15:56, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

Regarding Pocket Edition upcoming features[edit source]

Hello. I am here to discuss several adjustments that maybe can be slotted into the page about upcoming features for Minecraft Pocket Edition. You see, I wanted to talk to you because you were the one who blocked the page, so I thought I may be able to discuss this issue with you.

Mojang constantly posts submission dates for the upcoming features, as recently confirmed here. However, despite knowing this, according to the rules, I can't put the information into the page itself. So I thought that perhaps I could have permission to submit submission or release dates that have a reference. This way, the page will be more detailed and presumably give readers more information.

If you can not accept me adding the information about these dates, perhaps I can tell you the information at different times and you can add them in yourself.

I just wanted to ask you about the rule and if you can grant me permission to add in referenced content about submission dates.

I would also suggest adjusting the rule listed on the page to allow the adding submission dates that have a reference. If they do not have a reference, they can be removed.

Thanks for your time.

P.S: The rule does not actually exist on the page anymore, but it may not be cancelled, so I'd like to post an example of the policy in previous versions: http://www.minecraftwiki.net/index.php?title=Pocket_Edition_upcoming_features&oldid=512352

The previous policy reads as follows: NOTICE: Unfortunately, because of misleading speculation, we are no longer allowed to post release dates or submission status. To find this information, please check the official sources, which are cited in this page. Soldier Elite 06:46, 9 August 2013‎ (UTC)

Submission dates are what causes the problem of speculation. It was decided that any dates related to the Xbox and Pocket editions are not to be displayed since Microsoft and Apple, respectively, give little to no advance warning of the update's release to the public, even though Google releases the update within hours for Android devices.

common.js/common.css[edit source]

Moved to User talk:Majr#Moved from User talk:Kanegasi

Style[edit source]

Is there any possible way to create a CSS, JavaScript, etc. page so that the new version of the wiki looks exactly like the old one? File:M10Example-Kanegasi talk.png Meeples10t ~ c 00:52, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

I would also like the user details in the bluish part of the screen instead of the Curse bar, and instead of, for example, "Kanegasi (User talk:Kanegasi); time, blah blah blah Kanegasi (User:Kanegasi)", in the recent changes/watchlist, be just the page edited and the user's username that edited it. Meeples10t ~ c 01:34, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

Partial answer: in your personal css, add ".atfmrec" to your 'hide ads and Curse stuff' section to hide the right-side ad panel. Add "#p-socialProfiles" and "#p-sharing" to hide the social networking stuff. -- Orthotopetalk 02:00, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. Meeples10t ~ c 02:32, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
To replace the "+" with "New section", drop this into your js: $('[accesskey="+"]').text('New section'); I'm not sure how to change the View to Read on a personal basis since there's no attributes on it other than its link, so not quite sure how to select it. It can be changed in the overall wiki settings, but that will change it for everyone. As for the Watch star, the wiki's main skin js/css pages are now Hydra.js and Hydra.css, which received the same things the vector pages had, but for some reason the custom star code that's in there isn't working. Ultradude may have to look at that. Oh, as for the "Username (User:Username)" thing, that is some internal wiki issue. Hearthstone Wiki suffered the same thing when it came up, but it was fixed later on. Kanegasi C 04:04, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

Image paths in css[edit source]

I fixed all your image paths in your common.css file. While the old paths were still working, as soon as our old production environment is shut down (sometime next week) they would have all broken. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 04:28, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

Ahh, thanks. Kanegasi C 04:35, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

Another question about JavaScript/CSS[edit source]

Is there a possible way the "This is a minor edit" and "Watch this page" text under the edit window with "(m)" and "(w)"? Sorry if I'm annoying you, I'm not trying to. Meeples10t ~ c 17:14, 22 September 2013 (UTC)

$( '#mw-editpage-minoredit' ).html( '(<abbr title="This is a minor edit">m</abbr>)' );
$( '#mw-editpage-watch' ).html( '(<abbr title="Watch this page">w</abbr>)' );

Thanks. I'm not the best with these things, you can probably tell. Meeples10t ~ c 18:35, 22 September 2013 (UTC)
Another question: how can I make the text in the left sidebar black? Meeples10t ~ c 10:58, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

#mw-panel a {

'Soft Redirect' on de-Wiki[edit source]

Hi there. Sorry to see you undoing the replacement - for now your disk page again 'clutters' (yeah, sure, only page there) the special page de:Special:BrokenRedirects, which is why I introduced the "soft redirect". For the visitor it's the same - there ain't no auto-redirect across wiki-borders right now, so the visitor has to click in either solution - just that the template-based one doesn't create a "broken redirect" warning. Up to you, of course, i can't (nor won't) force you to switch to the 'soft redirect' - I'd just prefer having the error-category empty. --CalebBlackhand (talk) 23:51, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

I can understand wanting the broken redirect special page empty, but there's nothing wrong with it. The English wiki also has a bit of a list, but it's not hurting anything. Also, interwiki hard redirects still work. Try going to my talk page there and you will end up here. Kanegasi C 23:57, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
Okay, you got me there. Seems someone fixed the redirector in MediaWiki, for the last time I stumbled upon those links (in Wikipedia, admittedly) they refused to work, which is why I switched 'em over (assuming that I only replaced a non-working 'extra click' solution with a different one without the link). So, the "no auto-redirect" argument I assumed to be valid was wrong. Too bad the MediaWiki-Software still considers the link 'broken' despise the actual working redirect.
On the other hand it'd still be nice to see one is redirected into another language wiki before actually ending up there. As I followed the link the first time, I was suddenly logged out (of course - different wiki and all that), which is not what I would expect when I enter the talkpage of someone on the "local" wiki.
(PS: sorry, had to modify your reply above, or this wiki wouldn't let me post my reply due to the external link and me being a new user here) --CalebBlackhand (talk) 00:40, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
Redirects between interwikis aren't broken, Wikipedia specifically has that disabled, as mentioned here. Minecraft Wiki, and most likely every Curse wiki, allows them. You weren't logged out, it's just a different url, as you stated. All Curse sites recognize the same login cookie though and will automatically log you in when you click "Login". As for the link, sorry about that. Should've done that in the first place. Kanegasi C 01:06, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

My 'Secret Room' wiki has been blocked.[edit source]

I wrote a wiki on secret rooms. Everyone that I play Minecraft with uses secret rooms and I think they are a very important part of Minecraft. I believe my wiki would be useful to many people and should not have been blocked. Thank you for considering this, I love Minecraft, keep up the good work. :) Beth Strickland –Preceding unsigned comment was added by 202.49.20.81 (talk) 07:40, 8 November 2013(UTC).

The page (not wiki) you were trying to create is just a blob of text. If it were created, it would've been deleted under Rule #3 anyways. The page does not describe anything that can be found in Minecraft and creating pages trying to encompass anything that could be created in Minecraft is an impossible task.

Reply[edit source]

Dear Kanegasi,

My apologies for the "unwanted images". Although, I did stop with the unimplemented images long ago, I knew that you would send me a message regarding the invisible bedrock. I really didn't see what the big deal was, I figured since the block was invisible, that was it's image. I thought that it would be more organized if it had an image and that that image would look like nothing is there. But I do see your point, and I apologize. Although, in my opinion, if a block or item doesn't have an image, it probably shouldn't really have an infobox. But thank you for the comments on my other images.

Sincerely,

SquareMan78649 –Preceding unsigned comment was added by SquareMan78649 (talkcontribs) at 22:37, 10 November 2013 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Infoboxes organize all the info that any block/item/mob/person/structure would have and cleans up article descriptions so that anyone wanting to find the block ID or something wouldn't have to dig through the article (or section of text) for it. It doesn't matter if there's an image or not. I appreciate your understanding. Also, you don't really need to compose a talk page message as an email. Just a block of text and your signature is fine.

An external link for "Muliplayer"[edit source]

Hey!

I would like to request a link to be added under the "See also" category on the Multiplayer page:

http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/index.php?title=Multiplayer

The website I would like to add is:

http://minecraft-multiplayer.org

This site is the official place to show users how to play minecraft multiplayer (online) with quality content that is resourceful for new players. I believe it is a good addition to the already existing links on this page.

Please let me know if you agree. Thanks a bunch!

- Tyler –Preceding unsigned comment was added by 77.254.103.61 (talk) 21:21, 27 November 2013(UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

That site primarily exists to advertise a specific server. As per wiki rules 10 and 11, it will not be listed here; we document the game itself, not the fan community. -- Orthotopetalk 21:47, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Accidental Page Creation[edit source]

Dear Kanegasi,

I accidentally created a page called "/archivesBox" which the email notifications system says was created by you. The way I accidentally named it causes web browsers to go to "http://archivesBox" instead of what it was supposed to be, which was "Minecraft Wiki:Projects/MSG/templates/archivesBox" I already created the correct page, but I thought you should know this.

-Exhelah · Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Diamond Pickaxe.png · Grid Grass Block.png · 05:57, 2 December 2013 (UTC)

You got an email because you automatically watch a page when you create it, and when it's deleted it sends out an erroneous message that the deleter created it. Not sure how you got your browser to point to http://archivesBox though to be honest, but you're fine. I saw what you intended. Kanegasi C 06:56, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
Awesome. I just wanted to make sure. Thank you!

Reuploading[edit source]

Reuploading for whatever reason doesn't work for me. I don't know why. That is why I was creating new images instead of reuploading them. Can I use new images, and just mark the old images for deletion? –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Missingnoh (talkcontribs) 17:25, 10 December 2013‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Could you describe what you are experiencing when you try to reupload an image? Kanegasi C 19:18, 10 December 2013 (UTC)

Link to be added: Minecraft videos[edit source]

Hey!

I was wondering if its possible to get a link to my site dedicated to Minecraft videos: http://minecraft-multiplayer.org

This site is made only for the fans and to educate about Minecraft, what it is, and the YouTuber videos list, seen here: http://minecraft-videos.org/author-glossary/

I believe it is a good addition to the already existing links on this page.

Please let me know if you would agree. Thanks a lot, it would really help out! MinecraftMP (talk) 21:38, 1 May 2014 (UTC)Szymon

While I understand that you may be trying to help the community, unfortunately you are not allowed to advertise your own external material on the wiki. Note that this wiki documents the actual Minecraft game, and not the community. User webpages/videos/other content are not allowed on the wiki unless it is directly relevant to an article, or it is a tutorial relevant to the tutorials on the Tutorials page. It appears you have some nice tutorials/explanation guides on your website. While you are not allowed to link to your website from this wiki as promotional material, you may include relevant parts of tutorials you have created into articles, provided that they are relevant and do not repeat already existing information.
On a side note, Kanegasi has not been very active in the past couple of months, perhaps this post would have been better if it was posted in the community portal talk page. GoandgooTalk

Edit Counter Style[edit source]

I was wondering if there was a way to switch the font on the edit counter you made - the Minecraft font is too blurry. Thanks a million! - Exhelaht - c 05:25, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

UPDATE: I found out how to change the headers and numbers, but the date remains in Minecraft font. - Exhelaht - c 05:58, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
UPDATE 2: I figured it out! Never mind. You can delete this if you want. - Exhelaht - c 15:54, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
