Edit counter[edit]

I saw your post on the Strategy wiki. I have Najzere's talk page watched lol. Anyways, her script doesn't work on the Minecraft Wiki mainly due to the API calls on their wiki using MediaWiki's default /w/ server url, which is what the script calls, while this wiki's install does not have that set, causing an API error every time the counter tries to access our API. The reason I mentioned ultradude25 on her talk page is because he found this out a while ago and tinkered with her script so that it would work here. This is why I gave him credit when I made my version of the script.

You can either follow the directions to the page I just linked, or use ultradude25's script. Either way, copying the script to your own space is not required. Both his script and mine require you to go to your common.js or vector.js page (doesn't matter on this wiki) and put code into it to load the script. To use ultradude25's script, you can find the required lines here. Kanegasi C 10:34, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

Something doesn't make sense. When I copied the code from your Wikipedia user page, as per the link earlier, it just a appears as a bunch of code. There's no real edit counter there at all. Is it because I was checking though my iPad or was the code just not working for me?
Numbermaniac 11:37, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
There should now be a link on your userpage, in the left menu, under "User contributions" in the Toolbox, that says "Edit counter v67". Click it. Kanegasi C 11:39, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
There is a v67 counter link on my user page, however, when I click it. It says "Success!" after a while. Where do I actually view the number edits I've done? Numbermaniac 11:45, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
Its alright, I just found the page. Yay!! Thanks so much! Numbermaniac 11:47, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
I'm glad I could help, but I also noticed that having those vars blank made the table all weird and empty. Go ahead and delete the following lines in your common.js page to get a "normal" table, if you want:
    var mainDivAttrib = '';
    var mainTableAttrib = '';
    var topRowAttrib = '';
    var bottomRowAttrib = '';
Oh, and make sure you clear your cache. Follow the directions at the top of your common.js page on your userpage. This will refresh your scripts. Kanegasi C 11:58, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
Everything seems to be working. Thanks!!!! Numbermaniac 12:00, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

You're using this script way too frequently. At most it should be updated once a week, preferably less often like maybe once a month. ultradude25Talk

Good point. Sorry about that. Numbermaniac 07:33, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
As I have mentioned on my talk page, I made the same suggestion in the usage section of Najzere's altered documentation for my script, and you did say you read it. I suggest you read through WP:HIGHSCORE. It was one of the things I stumbled across when I began my overhaul of that script. Kanegasi C 07:38, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
Sorry. Numbermaniac 07:46, 7 March 2013 (UTC)

etc[edit]

I saw your post on the Community Something (I forgot the rest) page, and it was about that PvP server (I forgot the name). Do you play on it? And what is it like? (I'm interested in servers). 70.181.68.226 04:44, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

There's a great server called Project Ares, and the website is oc.tc. It's a great and fun pvp server, and they even record your stats, as in how many people you killed, how many times you died, etc. They even have leaderboards on it!
I've been recently playing on a cracked server called minecraftsmp.org, and that's a good one too. But if you want PvP, Project Ares is great. Click the Play Now button one the first link to see their servers. The address is the server name, followed by oc.tc. Have fun! :D -- Numbermaniac - T - C 07:43, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
Cool. If I get a chance to go on Minecraft, I'll practice sword fighting, shooting arrows (especially, since I'm a very bad shot), dueling with a friend, hand to hand combat with zombies, etc. And building. I'm a good builder and an excellent Redstone engineer. 70.181.68.226 14:44, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
Can anyone join them, or are they private? (I mean the servers) 70.181.68.226 15:08, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
Never mind the last question. The Project Ares server looks fun. But would I see you as "Numbermaniac" in game? 70.181.68.226 15:14, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
And is the Project Ares website only "oc.tc"? (because I'm not using a computer, so I can't really use the links...) 70.181.68.226 15:17, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
Hey, Numbermaniac... Can you change your in game name, or it has to stay what it is...?

70.181.68.226 15:41, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

Wow, that's a lot of questions you fired at me. Ok...
  1. The servers are public, anyone can join them.
  2. You would see me as NumberManiac in-game.
  3. The website for Project Ares is just oc.tc. If you were to join a server, you would have to find the server's name (Gamma, Delta, Beta etc.) and add that on to oc.tc. This means the server address for Beta, for example, is beta.oc.tc.
  4. You can't change your name in-game, it just stays as your Minecraft username.

Have fun! -- Numbermaniac - T - C 00:05, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

I wish that you could change the name. Well, I guess I'll have to settle for thewatsons2. (Believe me, I did NOT let's say that again N-O-T choose that name.) 70.181.68.226 03:15, 11 April 2013 (UTC)
On the bright side..... I might make another file! (But, sadly, this is very unlikely.) If I do, you'd see me as Aerbunny or Aerbunny02. But probably not. I'll most likely appear to you as thewatsons2. Good day to you! From, 70.181.68.226 03:31, 11 April 2013 (UTC)
On the Upcoming Features page, it says that in the future, you may be able to change the username. The only problem they have with this is that some users complain that this could make a problem in regards to server blacklists. -- Numbermaniac - T - C 08:18, 11 April 2013 (UTC)
Unique and unchangable player IDs with names as string variables assigned to that ID/user? And blacklists can use IDs instead of names. (I know where to place suggestions; I know that's going to break a lot, but doesn't every update break something?) --GreenStone(cont) (ru.Wiki Admin) 08:36, 11 April 2013 (UTC)
That's a great idea! You should suggest it to them! Updates do break things, hence the Bug Tracker :D. -- Numbermaniac - T - C 08:58, 11 April 2013 (UTC)
That makes sense...70.181.68.226 14:08, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

┌──────────────────────────┘
What he means is that each user has a unique player ID, so even if users change usernames, their ID will still be the same. This means they can't change their username to avoid the server blacklist. -- Numbermaniac - T - C 23:32, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

But how do you join the SMP server? 70.181.68.226 00:47, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
(Personally, I think I should have posted this before the SMP server question, but I figured out how to do the Project Ares server, yay!) 70.181.68.226 00:49, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
Great! Have fun on Project Ares! If you have any questions about the server, don't feel scared to ask. -- Numbermaniac - T - C 03:36, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
One thing... have you played on and are going to play on Project Ares? Please tell me? And can you answer my SMP server question? Thanks! 70.181.68.226 03:45, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
Nothing's special about a SMP server. To join, the address is mnnecraftsmp.org, which is the same address for the website. I have played on Project Ares, and you can see my stats here, although I'm not sure if I will go on it. The server is great, but I like the minecraftsmp.org server more, mainly because I'm not very good at PvP. If you want just PvP, Project Ares is the way to go. -- Numbermaniac - T - C 04:56, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
I have three things to say...

1: Tomorrow, I'm going to try out Project Are, on the server that is least crowded, so you'll probably find me on the least crowded server. (I said that twice, didn't I.)

2: By "getting onto" the server I mean, does it have a "Play Now" button or something?

3: Are you going to play the SMP server?

Thank you. 70.181.68.226 05:09, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

  1. You did say that twice, but it's alright, :D
  2. There is no Play Now button, basically all it is is that once you type the server address and click "Join" or whatever it is, you're in!
  3. I regularly play on that server, at least once every three days. -- Numbermaniac - T - C 05:41, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

Ad removal[edit]

I felt this wasn't really appropriate to mention on the admin noticeboard. Your ad removal isn't fixing the empty right space and the blocking is a bit messy. May I suggest you use exactly what I have at the bottom of my common.css? This'll properly block the top ad (atflb), bottom ads (btflb), floating ad thing on the bottom (ad-wrapper), side bar (curse-panel), adjust blank right space (bodyContent2 stuff), and hide the Curse sites on the bottom (#ft). If you don't want to hide the Curse sites on the bottom, just remove the #ft. Kanegasi C 08:57, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

I'm not very good at css, but I thought I could try my hand at something like this. It is a lot neater than mine. Thanks. -- Numbermaniac - T - C 11:28, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
Wow, yours is a lot better. Also, does this mean I have to get rid of that Ad removal page? -- Numbermaniac - T - C 11:36, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
No, you don't have to get rid of it. There's no rule against formatting your own wiki experience or letting people know how to remove ads, but in respect to Curse, it's not really appropriate to formally mention how to remove their ads. There's a few other users that have ad removal instructions in their userspace as well, but it should stay in userspaces. Kanegasi C 00:02, 11 April 2013 (UTC)
Ok. Thank you. -- Numbermaniac - T - C 00:19, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

Seriously... how did you make it blue? 70.181.68.226 10:19, 26 April 2013 (UTC)

I wonder how I forgot to answer. Apart from the parameters of title and text, I set a bgcol to #1df, and a linecol of #ddf. -- Numbermaniac - T - C 01:39, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
Say what? 70.181.68.226 04:04, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
Remember how you typed:
{{msgbox
| title = Hello!
| text = Stuff. :P

?

Just like that, I added two more:

| bgcol= #1df
| linecol = #ddf
-- Numbermaniac - T - C 07:17, 27 April 2013 (UTC) indent: -- Numbermaniac - T - C 07:29, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
Bgcol sets the background color of the box to a bluish color, and similar for the line color. -- Numbermaniac - T - C 07:22, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

I did it! Yay! 70.181.68.226 08:25, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

Hey, you copied it! I didn't really say you could use the same color, though. -- Numbermaniac - T - C 09:59, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
I changed it to be the opposite colors, ok? :D! 70.181.68.226 03:34, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
OMG, that actually makes a big difference, lol. -- Numbermaniac - T - C 03:42, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
Yeah. Its pretty, though. 70.181.68.226 03:43, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
It is. Also,without a watchlist, how do you know when we reply to you? -- Numbermaniac - T - C 03:45, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

I have good memory. :D! Hey, I have a watch list! Only it's in my brain! 70.181.68.226 03:53, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
Except that it doesn't tell you when an update to a page comes. Anyway, Lol! -- Numbermaniac - T - C 03:55, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
Though I can make a section on my user page that says what pages I'm watching with links to them.... 70.181.68.226 03:57, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
Pfft, that also works. Have fun. -- Numbermaniac - T - C 03:59, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
Okay! 70.181.68.226 04:19, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
Hey, I can't wait until the update comes out so you can play on the servers again! :P 70.181.68.226 04:37, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
Neither can I, but it might be a while. 1.5.2 only just came out (pre-release) so it might be a wait. -- Numbermaniac - T - C 04:52, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Must preview pages before editing Can save edits without previewing
Must do the cat captcha to add external links No cat captcha (once account is autoconfirmed)
Cannot move pages Can move pages

I'm teetering on the edge. If you don't give you an email, what kind of communications do they send you? Does Curse only send them to the certain device you're using, or to any device using that IP? --70.181.68.226 04:20, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

They cannot send you any communications without an email. Even if you do have an email, they will not send you any emails whatsoever. You can optionally turn on the setting to receive emails when a page you are watching is edited, but that is totally optional, and some admins don't use it. -- (T) Numbermaniac (C) 04:21, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
No communications? Huh. I'm teetering a bit closer to getting an account. --70.181.68.226 04:24, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
Hooray! To become auto confirmed, you may need an email, but the only message you will ever receive is a confirmation email when you add your email, just to make sure it is indeed you who owns the email. After that, no emails whatsoever. -- (T) Numbermaniac (C) 04:27, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
According to Minecraft Wiki:Autoconfirmed users, you need 10 edits in any "namespace" (the bit before the colon of a title), you must be registered for 4 days, and you need an email. -- (T) Numbermaniac (C) 04:29, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
Not to be rude or anything, but there is no "teetering". You either get an account or your userspace will be removed. I shouldn't have been indifferent when Numbermaniac asked me about IPs having a userspace. Wynthyst has made the determination that you have to get an account. We are not going to block you and you can continue to make edits, but you will not have a userspace. There is no requirement to use your email address. All you need for an account is a username and password. It's that simple. Just make one already. Kanegasi C 04:31, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

An anonymous editor. A nobody. Otherwise they'd have an account. 66.90.101.217 14:11, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
I guess I can be satisfied with that answer. --70.181.68.226 14:41, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
You could find some information about them, though. Such as looking up 70.181.68.226 tells me you have cable internet through Cox Communications Inc and are possibly near Orange County, CA (or Oklahoma City, OK. It's a rough guess based on their service area and the fact that your resolve host has 'oc' in the path). 74.102.143.250 uses Verizon and is likely near Newark, NJ. 95.154.230.254 14:46, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

This is a good reason to register an account. If you don't feel comfortable with people knowing your general location and other publicly available information for IPs, hide it by registering. Kanegasi C 20:07, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Thank you Kanegasi for pointing that out. But if you don't mind, I deleted that post. --70.181.68.226 20:32, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
It is up to Numbermaniac if he wants to remove posts on his talk page. Kanegasi C 20:38, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
Sorry Kanegasi, I didn't know. But I'm still not comfortable with people knowing how to obtain general info on where I am currently :(. I have a question, though. If people can figure out general info on where you live by looking up your IP, then why does this wiki show it for anonymous users? --70.181.68.226 20:42, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
There is no other way to identify "anonymous" users. IPs are used to keep track of actions performed by everyone. The user right "checkuser" that only a few admins have also allow them to see IPs of logged-in users to determine if someone is using more than one account, especially for vandals or someone "sockpuppeting" by making it look like multiple people agree with them. Kanegasi C 20:47, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
Ahh, that makes sense, also because one of the wiki rules says that one person should only have one account, right? --70.181.68.226 20:51, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
Correct. That's not just a rule though, it's general wiki etiquette. There are a few exceptions to this though, like some users with a legitimate bot account that makes a ton of repetitive edits, but generally one account per person to ensure security and constructive/stable edits. Kanegasi C 21:00, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
That makes sense, but what are "bots"? --70.181.68.226 22:20, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
Bot users are users who create 2 (or more) accounts to do repetitive or boring asks. examples: Typo fixes, convert hyphens/minuses (-) to a dash (–), etc. The full list is here.
Bot users:
  1. User:R2-D2
  2. User:Gnu64
  3. User:Overwatch AI

Are you serious? I believe one Abuse Filter blocks unregistered users from adding external links due to advertising or spam, but that is weird. –- (T) Numbermaniac (C) 08:12, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

I have attempted to remedy this, but there's no possible way to fix this while still stopping link spam. That filter, along with others, catches a ridiculous amount of attempted spam every day. The wiki can't go longer than 15 minutes without some spambot IP trying to replace an entire page with gibberish and spam links. The only way around this is to make an account and do at least ten edits. We can't make specific exceptions for every friendly IP. Kanegasi C 09:21, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Numbermaniac, I saw your post on the Admin noticeboard, and I just want to clarify: It just won't let an unregistered user type one of those words. I won't block them, it just won't let them save the page. --70.181.68.226 16:11, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
And Kanegasi, what was that protection that accidentally got me blocked? --70.181.68.226 16:15, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
Most filters either warn users or disallow saving the change. There is an option to block a user if they trigger a filter, and we used to use this for some spam, but the only option is indefinite. It was a bit spammy itself as the abuse filter fills up the block log in the recent changes, plus banning IPs forever will eventually harm someone else down the road if that IP wasn't permanently assigned to the spam server. I would like to think that sometime in the future, we could go through the indefinite block list and start cleaning out IPs, but this may not happen. I think the abuse filter allows block time setting in later MediaWiki versions, but I am not sure of this. We used the block option for some lemon spam trigger words, and I believe there's no harm in saying that "Fruitland" was a trigger word, but I figured it was too simple to cause a block after that. "Lemon" and "Fruitland" are disallowed, but won't trigger a block. As a sort of disclaimer, please don't test the block filter to find out the trigger words. Other admins may not share my sympathy with unblocking an "innocent" more than once. Kanegasi C 22:50, 1 June 2013 (UTC)
That was a very long answer. :D. Thanks! –- (T) Numbermaniac (C) 02:51, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
