minecraft wii u edition[edit]

i was wondering since i havent played minecraft on my wii u in quite a while i wanted to ask you if there is any new items or anything else new on there if there is could you please tell me what they are--64.188.224.244 18:08, 3 July 2018 (UTC)Harlan Bowman p.s i come to you to ask questions because you are the most helpful :)

I tried adding some info, and got blocked because it was automatically determined as "Harmful"[edit]

Hey, man! So I was browsing the Wiki when I saw that the languages page needed editing. Specifically the Shakespearean English. So I added some info, and with a reference link as proof that this info is correct. Since the exact origins of Shakespear's English aren't very well known by most. However, for some reason, the wiki blocked me from adding this change. Said it automatically determined that my edit was harmful. Now, it says it's because I'm a new user ( really am ) trying to add a link. Here is what it said

"Your action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. A brief description of the matched abuse rule for your action is: Global AF - New user adding link at end or in heading If you believe your edit was constructive, please post a message on the admin noticeboard or notify an admin directly."

So... Mind helping me with this? The info is pretty juicy and constructive in my opinion...

Thanks.–Preceding unsigned comment was added by Xxshadow reperxx (talkcontribs) at 11 July 2018 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Hi Xxshadow reperxx, thank you for letting me know! Your edit was caught in something called the abuse filter - which is a filter that prevents bad edits, such as spam, but it occasionally hits false positives as well. As for this filter in specific, I've seen it hit a lot of false positives - however, it's is a global abuse filter rule, meaning that the local admins can't do anything about it except notify global admins. The good thing is that all admins are able to access edits that were caught in the abuse filter, so I am going to take a look at the edit you tried to make add it to the article. Also, once you've made 10 edits, you shouldn't have a problem with most of the abuse filters anymore. :)-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 12:47, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

OLD Minecraft launcher will NOT update to a new minecraft launcher[edit]

I have tried updating the mine craft launcher. It didn't work. Did I do it wrong? What should i do next? --24.20.164.152 17:05, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

Are you on Java Edition? If so, then 1.12.2 should update to 1.13 automatically. When clicking the current game version option in the launcher (the default), it should be 1.13. I apologize, I'm not an expert on this topic, particularly for other editions besides Java - you'll probably find better help on the Minecraft Forums. There's a link to the forums on the sidebar. :)-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 21:34, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

Donkeys, Mules, and Llamas.[edit]

On the Nintendo switch version of Minecraft, you cannot put chests into mules, donkeys, or llama. I’ve looked it up, I’ve tried, I’ve killed many of them trying even. I’ve tried every button, and while crouching as well. I’m sure it’s a glitch with the game, could this be addressed next update? –Preceding unsigned comment was added by 73.3.122.117 (talk) at 01:05, 26 July 2018‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

That is strange - it must be a bug. Do note that I'm not a Minecraft dev or anything of that sort, so I can't really fix the problem directly. However, you can easily create an account on the Bug Tracker and report the issue there! You would report it as a Bedrock Edition bug, as the Nintendo Switch version is part of BE. Additionally, there are also the Minecraft Forums where you can discuss Minecraft-related topics. Hope this helps!-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 01:12, 26 July 2018 (UTC)

Error found[edit]

I found a mistake...........

Java Edition Alpha
v1.0.1 Added "Red Ore Dust" (item) and red ore dust (block). Red ore dust in its item form is used to craft redstone torches.
v1.0.2_01 Red ore dust now won't connect through solid blocks diagonally down.
Art tweaks to the dust.
Walking on Red ore dust no longer breaks it.
Red ore dust now gives off particles.
v1.0.4 Renamed to Redstone.
In this version or prior, added redstone to dungeon chests.
v1.1.0 Redstone is now used to craft compasses.
v1.2.0 ?Redstone is now used to craft clocks.

............there is no snapshot in Alpha v1.2.0. -180.190.58.90 04:07, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

Trying to create the Commands/schedule page[edit]

Since I'm a new user, I can't create the Commands/schedule page. Could you make it for me? Spiralio (talk) 15:21, 25 October 2018 (UTC)

Hey Spiralio; absolutely, done. Honestly, I don't really like that edit filter; it basically restricts creation of new pages to only experienced users unless many different conditions are met; we might as well just formally disallow new users from creating pages altogether. Anyways, yeah, I've created it and given you the attribution.

Disruptive editing on Tutorials/Defeating the ender dragon[edit]

User:205.174.240.232 has again reverted the section titles in this article, violating the style guide. I'd like to point out that this IP address belongs to an elementary school district in Cupertino, CA (per WHOIS). I am convinced this is the same person as User:162.234.248.192 for many reasons:

  • The latter IP is owned by AT&T, an ISP that serves the west coast, which is compatible with the theory that 162 lives near Cupertino
  • The timing of 162's edits coincide with mornings and evenings in California, and would be outside of elementary school hours
  • There is never any overlap in time of editing between these two IPs
  • They make identical edits and have recently focused exclusively on this article
  • They have the same editing style of tons of rapid mini-edits at a time
  • They both have ignored every attempt to communicate

I'm also convinced that 162.234.248.192 is the same person as User:TheFirePhoenix, based on comments on the latter's talk page and blocks performed by Orthotope at the end of August/beginning of September. TheFirePhoenix took a month-long break but has suddenly resumed today, editing (only) this article immediately following 205's edits. They also do not respond to communication attempts.

I feel like we've given this user ample time to notice and respond to our requests for communication, especially since on the rare occasions that they provide an edit summary, it seems to be a rebuttal of one of ours. This is been going on for 6 weeks; how much longer? – Auldrick (talk · contribs) 17:05, 25 October 2018 (UTC)

I forgot to mention that 205.174.240.232 (talkcontribslogsblock log) began editing at exactly the time of Orthotope's blocks. – Auldrick (talk · contribs) 17:29, 25 October 2018 (UTC)

Thank you Auldrick. I agree that the two IPs and account are no doubt the same, even just solely based off of behavioral evidence. I've issued 205.174.240.232 a final warning; I don't typically like to block good-faith contributors, particularly when they make many constructive contributions, but this user is refusing to communicate and a block is likely the only way to get them to stop. It's not so much the actual edits that are concerning as the fact that they are not willing to discuss the issue at all and just keep making the edit, edit warring. I've initially thought that blocking for a few hours or a day would suffice, but seeing as how 205 was already blocked for 1 day for edit warring and inserting outdated information, 162 was already blocked for a day for unexplained removal of content, and how TheFirePhoenix was already blocked for a day for removal of content, I would probably block for at least 3 days if any of the 3 IPs/accounts continue, as I believe that long of a block would be necessary to prevent disruption.-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 18:25, 25 October 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for blocking them so quickly. BTW, I reverted 2 edits before I saw that the second one wasn't blatant vandalism/violation. I would have reverted it anyway, eventually, but I would have left an explanation. Sorry for not double checking first. – Auldrick (talk · contribs) 20:57, 25 October 2018 (UTC)
No problem. I'll block the other IP or the account for 3 days if either of them starts editing, but they haven't yet, so for now I'm not going to worry about that. As I mentioned, I hate blocking good-faith contributors, but this one would not stop edit warring and refused to communicate with other editors; competence is required when editing wikis. I wouldn't worry about the fact that you accidentally didn't leave an explanation; mistakes happen, and in this case, the IP was repeating the exact same edits that they made before which you did leave an explanation as to why they were inappropriate, so an explanation probably wouldn't have been that useful by this point.-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 21:03, 25 October 2018 (UTC)
@Auldrick: I've blocked 162.234.248.192 for 3 days, as they've started editing again, including making the same edits changing section headings to title case.-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 18:32, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

Suggestion for changing the icon of "Version development" section in the main page[edit]

Could you please consider my suggestion of changing the icon here for the section "Version development" in the main page? Thanks. Lê Duy Quang (Make some words | Contributions) 12:49, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Since there's an objection to the change and it would affect the main page, I'll probably wait for more people to comment and see what they think.

Hey Andrew36903690; you sure could! There is a list of projects with an intended purpose at MCW:Projects, and anyone can join them! In addition, there are a number of other tasks you can do; including patrolling Special:RecentChanges and reverting vandalism using the undo button, updating new articles when new snapshots come out, creating new tutorials, going to a random page and seeing what you can improve on it, participating in discussions listed at the MCW:Community portal or its talk page... there's a lot you can do.

How Do you patrol a page?[edit]

I do not know how to patrol a page, can you teach me? Talk to me Minecraftfixer

Sponge.png
@Minecraftfixer: Do you mean to formally mark an edit as patrolled? If so, then you'll need to have either the patroller right or adminstrator right, which are only given to trusted and experienced users. Marking an edit as patrolled essentially means that a patroller has looked it over and any major issues (e.g. vandalism, false information, major grammatical errors) have been fixed. Any one can patrol Special:NewPages, though, and Special:RecentChanges, and make constructive edits to the pages there. Do you mean something else?-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 16:17, 25 November 2018 (UTC)

How to create a template[edit]

I don't know, can you tell me?–Preceding unsigned comment was added by Minecraftfixer (talkcontribs) at 16:48, 25 November 2018 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

@Minecraftfixer: To create a whole new template, go to Template:TEMPLATENAMEHERE and write the text in there. Template syntax can be quite complicated, particularly with parameters and parser functions; I can try to teach you some of it if you want. Once you've created it, you can add {{TEMPLATENAMEHERE}} to any page and it will transclude the template onto that page. To modify the text of an award template, write {{award|Your text here}} wherever you want the award to appear. I hope this helps you out a bit; let me know if you need help with anything in specific.-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 17:06, 25 November 2018 (UTC)
(Broken link)–Preceding unsigned comment was added by Minecraftfixer (talkcontribs) at 22:13, 25 November 2018 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~
Minecraftfixer, yes it appears as a broken link, but that's because I'm just showing that any template is just like a normal page but with the Template: prefix; TEMPLATENAMEHERE should be substituted with the template name. For example, if you wanted to create a template called "Stuff," you would create it as Template:Stuff. Any page or template that hasn't been created will always show up as a dead link. :-)-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 01:18, 26 November 2018 (UTC)


How do you edit a template?

--Andrew36903690 (talk) 00:27, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

@Andrew36903690: To edit a template, go to "Template:[TemplateName]." For example, if you want to go to the Official resources template which appears as {{official resources}} in the wiki-code, enter "Template:Official resources" in the search box. To actually edit it, just click "edit" or "edit source" - which one appears depends on what you've set your preferences to and save changes once you've done everything needed. However, it's important to know that editing a template is quite different than editing an article, as generally there is a lot of coding involved that looks different within the source editor than it does when displayed as a saved page. I'm going to refer partially to the advice Auldrick kindly gave me at User talk:Madminecrafter12/Archive 1#About editing templates while I was still a newcomer. Although a lot of the advice is specific to the {[tl|tutorials}} template and has some other information that is not relevant for this particular scenario, it does contain a lot of helpful advice when editing templates; specifically "There's a difference in how templates are presented when you're viewing and editing them. When you're viewing them (like you would an article), what you see should be documentation on how the template is used, but when you hit the Edit button you'll see the actual content of the template instead. The content is what gets included in the pages that call the template." I hope this gets you off to a good start and if there's a specific template you need help editing I'd be happy to try to help you out with that in particular; the world of templates is very large and diverse!-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 04:14, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Can relations with each other be better? Oh! and how do you switch to visual editing?–Preceding unsigned comment was added by Minecraftfixer (talkcontribs) at 16:48, 25 November 2018 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Of course Minecraftfixer; I never hold grudges on this wiki, I just try to do what's best for the encyclopedia. Visual editor works only on articles and on userpages; it won't work on this page because it's a user talk page. What exactly you need to do depends on what you have in your preferences. When you go to an article such as Creative, do you see an edit button AND an edit source button, or just an edit button? Once you tell me, I can let you know the next thing to do to go into the visual editor.-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 17:14, 25 November 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, Minecraftfixer. What happens when you click the normal "edit" button instead of the "edit source" button? If you do that, then the visual editor should be what shows up, as long as you do in fact have both buttons. If the source editor somehow shows up instead, go to the top-right corner of the editing toolbar area, click the pencil icon, and select the "visual editing" option with the eye rather than the "source editing" option with the brackets. I hope this helps you out a bit.-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 01:20, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

Superinbox administration[edit]

May I please be an admin? --Superinbox (talk) 19:04, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

Hey Superinbox; while you enthusiasm is appreciated, we unfortunately can't just make anyone an admin. We generally like to see hundreds of edits, preferably thousands, proving that someone is primarily here to contribute to helping this encyclopedia grow and solid evidence that they know when the admin tools should be used, as well as many months of experience. If you want to be an admin, my best advice would be to put that thought aside and instead try to help the Minecraft Wiki as much as possible and only even think about whether adminship is something you and the community want until you have a lot of experience and a solid need for the admin tools. Most work done on the Minecraft Wiki does not need admin rights to complete. If you're looking for ways to help, MCW:How to help and MCW:Projects would be great places to start; you can also patrol Special:RecentChanges to see a feed of all the edits that have recently been made to the wiki in real time. I hope this helps get you off to a good start and feel free to let me know if you have any questions.-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta.png 19:14, 7 December 2018 (UTC)
