Hey There! Do you think it would be a good time to archive your talk page? –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (Talk) 01:12, 1 January 2013 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Well now you've gone and ruined it so I don't get a nice empty talk page. ultradude25Talk

I would just interpret it as good-natured ribbing,, and not worry about it. You couldn't have known that Ultradude was planning on archiving his talk page, or that your comment would make him have to change the way he did it. ;) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 02:23, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

hey, somebody deleted the redstone comparator page 18:38, 17 January 2013 (UTC)


Because I don't have a particularly large screen (1280x1024), the extra tabs this script adds tend to obstruct the Read/Edit/View history tabs. Is there any way to modify it to push those into the dropdown menu? -- Orthotope 11:18, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

Tabs with a class of "collapsible" will collapse into the menu automatically, however it's a bit buggy (sometimes you'll get an infinite loop where it can't decide if it should collapse or not, so the tabs wiggle around).
Would making the doc tabs use less text (like Doc and Doc Talk) allow it to fit? ultradude25Talk
13:49, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
Abbreviateing it to 'Doc' should do it. Thanks. -- Orthotope 01:34, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
I also agree to abbreviating it to 'Doc' and 'Doc Talk'. I haven't really edited any templates since I started using that, but I've noticed, even on my large screen, the tabs get a bit crowded on templates. Also, slightly related, are your syntaxHighlight scripts the ones that make the links clickable in the header of editcounter.js? If so, the 'clickable' status stops past the second colon in the wiki page links. --Kanegasi C 01:42, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
Alright, I haven't changed it to "Talk" yet since we still use Discussion for the standard talk pages, and I think we should change that first, I'll put up a topic on the community portal about it.
The syntax highlighting script isn't written by me, and it does have some issues like that. The clickable links is one thing, another thing is any double forwards slashes on a line will make it highlight the rest of the line as a comment, even from the forwards slashes in http://.
I'll see if I can find the regex responsible, but I don't much understand the script. ultradude25Talk
03:22, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
Maybe try replacing /\/\//g, with /[^:]\/\//g,, so it won't match a double slash immediately following a colon? -- Orthotope 03:46, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
That wouldn't completely solve the issue since you can use // as the start of a URL so the browser will automatically use http or https depending on what the current page is using. ultradude25Talk
03:51, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
Changes for the url matching worked like a charm. Thanks for your work! --Kanegasi C 05:08, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Signature? -- Anoymous712 07:45, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

I see you're working on the Sprite templates...

Hopefully you'll be able to, (or already have) fix the "too many loops" problem... while you're there, do you think you could add the other directions/corners for rails and redstone? Looking at the Sprite doc, it looks like you might need to square off the BlockCSS image anyway.... Alternatively, adding a "rotate" option to Sprite might simplify that, allowing you to name the rotated versions in BlockSprite. --Mental Mouse 22:29, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Too many loops has nothing to do with the sprite templates, that's BlockGrid's issue.
You can rotate any block element using the css style "transform", but it's still vendor prefixed. I'll add the rotations anyway. ultradude25Talk
22:45, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
Cool, thanks! How do you apply the "transform" when you're using it via BlockGrid? Also, I don't quite understand what you mean by "vendor prefixed". --Mental Mouse 23:38, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
A CSS vendor prefix is just a tag prefixed onto a CSS property, if support for that property is still experimental, as is the case with many CSS3 properties. For example, when support for border-radius was still experimental, browsers with support usually only supported a vendor-prefixed version: Firefox used -moz-border-radius and Chrome and other Webkit browsers used -webkit-border-radius. There are a few other vendor prefixes as well; common ones include "-o" for Opera, "-khtml" and "-apple" as aliases for Webkit browsers, and "-ms" for Internet Explorer; there are several less common ones as well, and you can get a complete overview here. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 23:51, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
You wouldn't be able to use transform on an individual image in a blockgrid, you'd only be able to rotate the whole thing. ultradude25Talk
00:39, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
Ahh. Thanks to both of you for the info! --Mental Mouse 02:08, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
Wouldn't rotating the image change the position value? Do you pre-calculate that in /pos or do it dynamically? —Munin295 · 16 px 16 px · 02:37, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
The transform property doesn't rotate the image (nor does it have anything to do with any template, it's a CSS property), it rotates the entire element.
Take this line of text for instance. The element itself has been rotated, which includes everything inside it. ultradude25Talk

Quartz Block

Hello Ultradude25,
Mojang just released the new textures file for 13w02a.
This file contains the textures for the new block, Block of Quartz. You can get this at file[1].
The name of the .png-files are: "quartzblock_bottom", "quartzblock_chiseled", "quartzblock_chiseled_top", "quartzblock_lines", "quartzblock_lines_top", "quartzblock_side" and "quartzblock_top", which means that there are 3 different Quartz Blocks. contains the new Block of Quartz. Which means you can make a render of it already.

Moving "over redirect"

Yea, I found out about that function with the one edit and redirect when I noticed my phone didn't complete the main page move while I was submitting the revert and wondered why it went through anyways, so your delete summary is correct. I'll keep that in mind in the future. --Kanegasi C 22:07, 11 January 2013 (UTC)


Hi, I'm wondering how you create categories which automatically look for templates. I'm thinking of adding a category called,"Pages with disclaimer tag" so editors can cross-check for mod pages without it and add it. Thanks! -- Anoymous712 05:45, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

Categories don't do anything but list pages with {{escaped link|Category:<name>}} in them. In this instance, you could make the disclaimer template add {{escaped link|Category:Pages with disclaimer tag}} to any pages it is transcluded on.
However, using a category would not be a good way to do accomplish what you want. A far better way would be to get a bot to check it (this is easy to do since all mod pages are under Mods/) and add it if it is missing. I'll have my account run a check once it is finished categorising all unlicensed images. (5000 pages to go...) ultradude25Talk
06:07, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Noted. Thanks. -- Anoymous712 06:11, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
So Category:Disclaimer would work, without need to change the disclaimer template (it's protected)? If so, I will still make the category just for reference. -- Anoymous712 06:16, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Why would it? If it's not in the template, it's not going to be on any pages... ultradude25Talk
06:21, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
I see, I thought it does a search for the template or something. Thanks again. -- Anoymous712 06:32, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
Like I said, all categories do is find pages that have {{escaped link|Category:<name>}} in their text. ultradude25Talk
06:34, 13 January 2013 (UTC)

The bot has now added disclaimer to all sub-pages of mods that were missing it. (43) ultradude25Talk

Deleting talk?

Why did you delete Age2empire2020's posts on Talk:Glowstone and Talk:Redstone Lamp? Although the forums are the place for such suggestions, these posts seemed in good faith and now a new user will find their first contributions simply gone with little to no explanation.

Munin295 · 16 px 16 px · 08:48, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

There's lots of people that do this, it's hard to be tolerant of them. It's an idea we've all heard a million times anyway. ultradude25Talk
10:31, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
It might be our 1000th time, but it might be their first attempt at using a wiki (which can be scary, and shouldn't be discouraged if it's in good faith, only corrected). How about if we create a canned response template? {{No game requests}}? "The Minecraft Wiki exists to document Minecraft. Please use the forums to suggest game features." Not as fast as an undo, but more helpful to a potential contributor.
If it's all right with you, I'd like to reinstate the posts with a response.

Or add it to the talk page editing banner, either is fine by me. ultradude25Talk
01:52, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
I don't think game requests are unique to talk pages (and I'm not sure I know how to edit the talk page editing banner), so I've created the template and restored the posts. Thanks! —Munin295 · 16 px 16 px · 02:55, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Isometrics Renders

Can you show me how to make the isometric block renders? I have Blender, but I have no idea what to do. --Fusi0nSt0rm 13:50, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

You're better off learning by googling these things.
  • You use a UV Map to texture the block
  • Orthographic camera for the isometric prospective (check wikipedia to learn about isometric perspective and all the different terminology related to it)
  • I used a spot lamp for the lighting and just fiddled around with it until it looked right, probably better ways though
  • The block itself it just a standard cube mesh, however I scaled it to be 1.6×1.6×1.6, so each .1 relates to a pixel on the standard texture pack, makes it easier to model things around the texture
23:31, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
Okay, thanks, but what if I want to render a non-solid block like the Comparator or a half block (slab)? --Fusi0nSt0rm 08:28, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
Just resize the cube and UV Map. For things that aren't a singular cube shape, duplicate the cube and move the UV Map to the right part of the texture. ultradude25Talk

Template help

Can you lend a hand to help fix {{SchematicSprite}}? Looking at page source code, it appears the wiki is turning

<span class{{=}}"schematic-sprite-image"


&lt;span class{{=}}"schematic-sprite-image"

near the end of {{SchematicSprite/image layer}}, which FUBARs the CSS formatting. I can't figure out why it's doing that, though; there's no blatantly obvious reason Tidy is unhappy with that span, but doesn't touch the previous, nearly identical one. -- Orthotope 05:32, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

Nevermind, Munin got it working somehow. -- Orthotope 08:37, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
I just had an extraneous closing double bracket. Hard to find, even with my extravagant formatting style. But if anyone has any tips or links to good tutorials on editing/debugging templates, I'd welcome them. They seem very fragile, especially with the hidden pass through wiki interpretation.
I took it back out of the Template category until I've done some more error testing.

Template coding tutorials? Ha! You'd be better off waiting for Lua templates to reach stable so that we can request them here. ;)
In all seriousness, though, AFAIK there really aren't any template coding tutorials worth much out there. has some documentation, but it's mostly written as a reference rather than a tutorial: the examples are all contrived and therefore not too easy to understand. No one else seems too interested in writing tutorial material, either, which doesn't help. The best advice I can offer is probably to have a good text editor at your disposal, that can match braces for you (I use Notepad++); if you have some code with mismatched braces (or even if you only suspect there are mismatched or misplaced braces), copy it to the text editor and start looking through one set of braces at a time. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 16:18, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

Xbox 360 wiki

I think u should make an xbox 360 wiki so that everyone can have the same experience on minecraft –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Sc00byD004 (Talk|Contribs) 21:56, 13 February 2013‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

This wiki covers everything about Minecraft, therefore a whole wiki on just one different version of the same game is pointless. There is plenty of information on this site that pertains to just the Xbox 360 Edition, and if you find anything missing or something in an article that doesn't point out the differences, feel free to add it. One example is the Book page, where the Xbox 360 Edition still uses the old three paper recipe while the computer version uses three paper and a piece of leather.

I would like to discuss the block that has happened on 7 February 2013. Listen, I am not by any means trying to vandalize anything, I am just trying to help. I understand that whole "Mushroom Block" incodent was taken to far, and I apologize for that, but I was just trying to say that the block itself is not actually called "Huge Mushroom", that is just the naturally occuring structure that the blocks make up. And I also understand that there are blocks with textures that have had unknown textures for years and I just wanted to try and fill in those holes and try to make some suggestions on the looks of the blocks. The final thing I would like to discuss is invisable blocks. When it came to the whole Invisable Bedrock thing, I shouldn't have put up the picture I did because the block wasn't fully invisable. In other words, you could still see it, but with air, there should be a picture of a totally invisable block. In other words, I am suggesting a blank white picture instead of a picture of clouds. I should probably be wraping up this discussion but just one more time, I am not trying to do any harm, I am just trying to help. Thank you for your time. SquareMan 06:40, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Then maybe you should actually give a reason for constantly changing things instead of blindly reverting.
If it's just a blank white picture, then there may as well be no picture. Blank white on blank white equals empty space. ultradude25Talk

"Reverted to last revision by..." how?

I occasionally see you and others reverting multiple edits by a vandal, with a log entry to the effect of "Reverted to last edit by...". How do you do this? I can't see any option on the history or change page for that.... TIA! --Mental Mouse 23:53, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

It's the rollback feature. See also here, where someone asked a very similar question. -- Orthotope 02:34, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
Ah, thanks. So it is (here) an admin-only capability. Drat. I was prompted to ask by YA sequential vandal -- what I've been doing in that case is just to edit and save the revision before the bad edits. --Mental Mouse 03:09, 21 February 2013 (UTC)
I think any editor can effectively do this. Go to View History, choose radio buttons that encompass the numbers of edits you want to rollback, and hit the Compare Selected Revisions button. The resulting page will show you the difference across multiple edits and provide an Undo link at the top right next to the latest revision title. You don't get the fancy edit summary provided for you, but it will allow you to undo multiple edits at once.

Would it also be possible to publicly label Curse staff as well, or would that be too much? It makes sense to label Minecraft devs, especially since stuff like MarcWatson's contribution to Nathan Adams is referenced, but in terms of wiki management, I believe Curse should be labeled too. It feels like Wynthyst's call at that point, but just wanted to see what thoughts you have. Kanegasi C 06:51, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
I don't really think it's necessary, and if we do we should at least label the admins too, but after having it for a while I think the icons make things look too cluttered. ultradude25Talk
07:08, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
I personally like them, although my iPhone has an issue with properly sizing any pixel, or even em, sizes and the icons I have kind of half hide behind the first letter of the username, even though my computer's display has a decent space. I think, for you, it's because of the pickaxes. I use a diamond gem for en and gunpowder for other directors. The gunpowder was just to differentiate, but you should try the diamond. I also have IPs labeled and they're pretty non-intrusive as well, although I wish CSS selectors used actual regex instead of the simple ^*| stuff, since I can't 100% pin down only IPs. As for labeling admins, I was also thinking of that as well, but I was under the assumption that the general sysop attitude was the same, or similar, as Wikipedia's, where you guys are just contributors with extra tools and nothing special. I think that is sort of silly though. Kanegasi C 07:18, 28 February 2013 (UTC)
Well I would agree that we're just editors with extra tools, but that seems like a good reason to have the icons. If you need to find someone who has those extra tools but you don't know who is who... well you should just go to the admin noticeboard, but you know how people are, so they could just look for someone with an icon and annoy them with requests. ultradude25Talk

Your Help, Our Wiki?

Hey Ultradude, since you don't know me, i'll introduce myself. I'm trdeathwing, official wiki developer of Divine-RPG. We kinda need help on our Crafting Table template, if you have free time, can you perhaps, contact me and you could either give tips or do it directly. Thanks, bro.

Download all the block renders and icons?


My nickname is Ha3 (I don't think I need to introduce myself since I found some of your comments on YouTube), I am currently working on an ad-free non-commercial website, and I've been wondering if there is a location where I could download all block renders.

If you're curious enough, I'd gladly disclose the details of the project in private.--Ha3 15:46, 6 March 2013 (UTC)

I don't have the images, but I can offer the blend files for you to render the images yourself. Otherwise you'll have to go through this category. All the ones I've made should at least be in there. ultradude25Talk

Recent category deletions

Some of the crap categories you deleted look like I was involved, more specifically the $1 category (looks like something from that HotCat script I ported from Wikipedia) and the screenshot and user image ones using ' + '. Did I accidentally make those or something? Kanegasi C 13:22, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

They were all made by 007a83, who keeps making categories just because they're on the wanted categories list. However, the reason they're on there is because of your preset summaries script, or more specifically the custom summaries part. ultradude25Talk
13:51, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
That's what confuses me. The custom edit summaries are only involved in edit summaries, unless MW looks for wanted categories in edit summaries and sees that category link before the script puts the link together. I have the ' + ' split there because during one of my early edit count script versions, the date parser function was ran while in the script, which was weird, so I assumed wiki links do the same thing and a script won't properly produce the link. Is someone copy/pasting these split category link codes or does MW see these in edit summaries? Kanegasi C 14:32, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
It's nothing to do with the edit summaries themselves. Common.js is just a wiki page, so the links in your script are just like links on a page. ultradude25Talk
15:03, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
Instead of making the categories links, you could just separate a bracket so the wiki just thinks it's text. '[' + '[Category:$1}}' ultradude25Talk
17:55, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
What's funny is that was exactly my first thought and I almost did that, but decided to just put a colon to link it. I also believe the whole ' + ' isn't really needed for wiki links and is only needed with parser functions, so later I plan on just removing that on all of the presets when I'm not on my phone. Kanegasi C 18:52, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
It's not needed, but it'll stop them showing up as wanted pages (if they don't exist), or your script showing in what links here. ultradude25Talk
19:31, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
I assume you were substing the date parser function? The reason that happened is subst is done in pre-save transform, so it converts it before you save the script to the database. The same would happen if you used the pipe trick or whatever else uses pre-save transform. ultradude25Talk
19:39, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
Ah, using the colon would make my script show up in the WLH page, even though it's no longer in the wanted page. I'll go with the split brackets trick. Also, looking up what you said in your second paragraph, which was confusing at first, I understand. Here's the old revision where it happened. It's in the timestamp variable. I just plopped the subst:time right in there and I didn't notice it saved as the date. Thinking of that behavior, I should've realized how subst worked before that from doing a few unsigned tags. Thanks for the clarifications. Kanegasi C 21:12, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

If it's just when you view it and not when rendered, then you probably have mipmaps enabled. You can turn those off in the System & OpenGL tab. ultradude25Talk

Signature help

Hi ultra dude, I used the span tags to make my signature greenish, however if I place the span color tag outside my user page link, only the two dashes become green. I have to put the span tag within each link for it to turn green. Why is this happening? -- Numbermaniac - Talk(C) 04:37, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Because the anchor elements are under the span tag, thus its own styles have a higher importance over the span's (inline) styles. Elemental nesting has the highest level of importance and will overwrite even inline !important styles. ultradude25Talk
06:10, 29 March 2013 (UTC)
Oh, ok. Does that mean I have to leave the sig as it is? Or is there a way to do the same thing, but with less code? -- Numbermaniac - Talk(C) 06:31, 29 March 2013 (UTC)
If you have to have the colours, that's the only way to do it. ultradude25Talk

Schematic CSS

Would you add the CSS from my common.css to the wiki's CSS style sheet? (it's all for the Schematic template)

The schematic CSS has been stable for a while now, and has been looked at by at least one admin. Although there are still improvements that can be made to the Schematic/SchematicSprite templates and style sheet, enough is done that it's time to request feedback and possibly start using them in articles (Mental Mouse is starting to test it, which is awesome), and for that the CSS should be in the main sheet.

When a table.schematic is within a table.wikitable, it looks like the border property in table.schematic td is being overwritten by the border property of table.wikitable td (the schematic has no border between cells instead of the specified schematic border). You can see this in the examples (collapsed wikitable) in Schematic/doc. Can this be fixed? —Munin295 · 16 px 16 px · 03:52, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

{{Animate}} problems on the Hungarian wiki

Hi! We have a little problem with the Animate template on our wiki. Its code is exactly the same as yours (the CSS and the JS is the same, too), but it doesn't work. It does the switching, but it only shows the first frame properly, and gives redlinks for the other images, like they weren't uploaded. Could you take a look at it and tell us what's the problem? Thanks in advance. --Viator 14:35, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Could it have anything to do with the fact that the Hungarian wiki doesn't have the /wiki/ part section of the page name after the initial domain? -- Numbermaniac - T- C 03:44, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Firework Star

Hello there!

As you could see in my edit to Firework Star, I marked the official release number and the developmental snapshot separately because they are different. Using the Template:History style of release is incorrect and inconsistent, since developmental releases are not official releases.

I have undone your re-revision. If you have any questions, please let me know on my talk page. Thanks! Silivrenion 19:09, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Note -- the fix to this problem is to edit the Template:History with a Developmental Version section to differentiate between the two appropriately instead of mislabeling them Silivrenion 19:10, 10 April 2013 (UTC)


I forgot about the impressive lists of this template in the version history pages. I had references in mind. Would there be any way to code it to have that forced title if the template was used in a reference tag? Kanegasi C 21:37, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

No. You should probably just type it manually for the few cases where it's used in a ref. ultradude25Talk

On consideration, Meeples10

On my talk page, as I figured it out. Seems he edited a redlink into my userpage last month (I didn't notice at the time), and now he pops up with "you're welcome for my fixing the redlink on your user page". Took me a while to get suspicious and check the history list.... It happens your name is involved. ;-) (And yeah, I need to keep closer tabs on my user page....) --Mental Mouse 21:34, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

He is continuing to be a pest on my talk page. His latest is embedding a dumb picture there... and when I edited it out, he put it back with a "BECAUSE I FELT LIKE IT!". I'm about to wipe the section, but it's all in the history. --Mental Mouse 12:52, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

about Template:Grid

I have updated the template on the Chinese Wiki to the current version but I have found a problem that I could not solve. I have leave the template the same except I have changed|link={{{#var:link}}} }}to|link={{#replace:0|0|{{Autolink| {{#var: link }} }} }}}}. Autolink is a template that uses #switch to translate the link to the page name (because the image name is in English). The template works fine, but when I pass in more than one items, the link of the first one is fine, but the rest does't seems to have pass through the the autolink template and the link remains English. Is there a way to solve this problem? P.S. is there also a way for me to not use the #replace method? —Powup333 ZH Admin 23:09, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

Because only the first item is done by the wiki; the rest is in JavaScript. I don't see how that replace function actually changes anything. ultradude25Talk
00:00, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the explanation. About the replace function, the wiki treats the version with the template and without the function to be "link= air", but not link= "air", so it would just have a display name of "link= air" instead of creating a link to "air".—Powup333 ZH Admin 23:37, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
Oh, also a suggestion, with the navbar templates and any other collapsible tables, can you change the collapsible class so that when the template or table collapses, the title bar does not shrink to the corner but instead remain its width?—Powup333 ZH Admin 23:49, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
Not with CSS, because once you collapse it, the content which was making the title bar expanded is hidden and not taking up space. Our navboxes are all full width to get around that (and it doesn't look as messy when there's multiple navboxes)..
However, I could have the JavaScript get the current width of the table, set that as its max-width and set its width to 100%. That should make it function similar to having the content take up the space, barring the edge case of it spilling outside of its container, but that shouldn't be happening much in the first place. ultradude25Talk

Version history/Development versions

There's been a proposal to split this page, since it's getting excessively long (fourth-largest on the wiki at the moment). The trick is that {{Version link}} would need to be updated, and it's a bit more arcane than I'm comfortable monkeying with. If there's some sort of string comparison function available, it shouldn't be too hard to identify major versions from snapshot numbers. Can you weigh in on this at some point? -- Orthotope 23:13, 20 April 2013 (UTC)

Can it wait until we get lua? It'd be a lot easier then.
It actually already has some split sub-pages, /Beta, /1.1, /1.2.5 and /1.3; but nothing links to them and their contents is still on the main page.
The closest you can come to string comparison is a basic switch, or a load of nested #ifeq; this is really something where regex would be best. I guess we could use #explode to avoid having to have a massive switch containing every version... It would be messy either way. ultradude25Talk
23:51, 20 April 2013 (UTC)
It's not breaking the wiki (yet), so it can wait a bit. Would be nice to have more information about when the upgrade will happen, though. -- Orthotope 00:15, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
Well according to this topic one of the features of hydra is a new curse footer, and a few days ago the curse footer changed, so maybe we're getting it quite soon. Then all we need to do is wait for mediawiki 1.21 to be released (May 15th), then get curse to install Scribunto. ultradude25Talk
