Dutch page :nl:Sjabloon:BlockSprite/doc[edit]

Hi,

We're having some problems on the Dutch wiki, when i try to make changes to the Template talk page :nl:Sjabloon:BlockSprite/doc it goes to this screen: [1], just a white screen with in the url bar a url which states that it's submitting but it's done loading, do you know how to fix this? I've tried deleting and remaking the article, didn't work.

-- TheWombatGuru t | c NL Admin 23:40, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

Seems to be working fine for me, though I only tested previews and diffs, not actually saving the page. If it's still a problem for you, contact Wynthyst; it looks like a server backend issue that Curse would have to fix. -- Orthotopetalk 00:18, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
Strange, I also can't edit the English version of that page, I also had this problem with other large pages. -- TheWombatGuru t | c NL Admin 00:45, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
The page is taking too long to load, so php is timing out. There's a lot of sprites on that page. MattTalk

GUI[edit]

Dear Orthotope,

I'm not sure what GUI is, but why don't you remove the crosshairs from the pictures because I'm not sure how to do so.

Sincerely,

SquareMan (talk) 22:56, 18 January 2014 (UTC)SquareMan78649

PS: It really doesn't matter if you use either a render image or in-game image of the cold-en oak tree. As long as they both look the same, it's fine.

As two people have already explained on your talk page, pressing the F1 key will hide the in-game GUI (inventory bar, arm/item in hand, and crosshairs). -- Orthotopetalk 01:52, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

Furnace[edit]

Any reason you deleted the redirect? It's a fairly common misspelling, so I thought it would be fine, unless it's this wikis policy to not use redirects or something. 68.112.222.22 05:23, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

Redirects are useful for alternative names (Dinnerbone redirects to Nathan Adams), making links less case-sensitive (Cobblestone wall redirects to Cobblestone Wall), and not breaking links when pages are moved, among other things. However, they generally aren't for misspellings of common words. -- Orthotopetalk 05:46, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
I see. It's a common policy on many wikis to redirect for common misspellings, which is why I was confused. 68.112.222.22 07:03, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

Block this user longer: EpicBox99090900[edit]

I have a dick little 11 year old brother who can't resist trolling this wiki when he saw I got a account. When I told him to get off mine, he made is own account and griefed, but not before griefing on my account. I will change my password and delete history after I log off, so he can't get on. But the point is, I haven't been griefing. That was my brother. Insted of blocking ip, just block registering from this IP and ban my bro's account. If you can please. wait, Bob99090900O (talk) 20:35, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

And now concerning user User:Bob99090900O: there's a large amount of page griefing coming from this account, mainly on user Talk pages. Skylinerw (talk) 02:28, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks in advance for any reply.

--Raffox97 it.Wiki Admin 14:11, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Matt is responsible for the Lua magic that does that. If you want it on the Italian wiki, you'll need to have the Scribunto extension installed, copy all the relevant Modules, and update the related templates. -- Orthotopetalk 19:17, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Actually, if you just want the tooltip, you just need the "Minetip" JS and the relevant CSS. MattTalk

Roofed oak saplings in 13w43a[edit]

You just undid my change to Sapling#History, but if you take a look at Development_versions#13w43a it says added Roofed Oak. Reijerzzz (talk)

That particular version is no longer available in the launcher. The name had been changed in the 1.7 prerelease (the next version available), not the 1.7.2 prerelease. Fixed. -- Orthotopetalk 17:51, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

can I still use block Ids for commands[edit]

Can I or do I have to use the block name now in the lasted update 96.49.236.201 03:46, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

Depends on which version you mean by 'latest update'. In the 1.8 snapshots, named IDs must be used, rather than numeric ones. -- Orthotopetalk 05:35, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

Curse has mentioned that they're still working on getting that part to work properly, no idea when it will be fixed. -- Orthotopetalk 18:38, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply, but as I can see on another profile on the Italian Wiki the points are updated as like the rank and the level. Maybe it's a my problem.

Updated altitude graphs?[edit]

Will there be any updates to the altitude graphs? The most recent one was for Minecraft 1.5, and Minecraft 1.8 will be out in a few months. You're the only person who appears to have edited them, and I've learned that they are difficult to make after trying to compile some data myself using MCEdit and spreadsheets. Are you planning on updating them? Do you have scripts that help create them or at least compile the text-based data? I am interested in helping if needed. --65.8.89.87 08:25, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Orthotope got scripts from from VictorJavAdore who wrote a Java module that created the custom SVG graphs, but VictorJavAdore said he lost his own copies of the source code. Zerpa has shared Ruby scripts that use gnuplot, and someone named l0b0 on GitHub has released a Python package called mian that uses matplotlib. --65.8.84.82 17:14, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Namespace of the italian wiki[edit]

Hi Orthotope,

I've a problem with the Italian Wiki. As you can see the namespace of the wiki is not "Minecraft Wiki" like for example the English Wiki, the Spanish Wiki or the other Wikis. As can I see the Italian Wiki is the only that have a different namespace. Can you change it or do you know how can I (or someone else) change it?

Regards,
--Raffox97 it.Wiki Admin 10:19, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Maybe you misunderstood what I say. I didn't mean the title of the main page. I mean a thing like this, if you can see the projects page begin with "Minecraft Wiki:" but in the Italian Wiki they begin with "IT Minecraftwiki:" but in other wikis (example: the spanish wiki) they are like in the english wiki. I think that now my talk is more understandable.

Rabbit foot[edit]

I think you forgot the "rabbit's foot" one for items template, but anyway, thank you. Please add that one too.MamiZaCraft (talk) 17:38, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

I don't think apostrophes can be part of the name, since they're used in the module as string delimiters. Matt may know how to escape them, since he's the Lua expert. For now, id=rabbit-foot will work. -- Orthotopetalk 17:52, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
Uses quotation marks around the string. As in ["rabbit's-foot"]. See Module:BlockSprite' Jack-o'-Lantern. --KnightMiner (t|c) 18:07, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Re: Rabbit's Foot page[edit]

Not speculation, see Wikipedia article on Mission: Impossible III.

--66.102.85.37 21:38, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

I'm familiar with the movie and its Macguffin. However, as per Rule 7, speculative content is not to be added to this wiki. Unless someone at Mojang confirms that it's intended as a movie reference, it's far more likely to refer to the historical use of an actual rabbit's foot. Note that this is also speculation and should not be added to the article unless confirmed by Mojang. -- Orthotopetalk 22:08, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Suspicious "Doom Gate"[edit]

Hello Orthotope!

I looked into recent changes and saw a "Doom Gate" T Flip-Flop made by Hello2215. However, it lacks a reasonable source like most other circuits do. Is it against the rules? Also, the schematic isn't there... Keep that in mind.

--Regards, Naista2002 (RU T C) 07:29, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

I don't see a problem with it. The section could be improved – create a schematic, modify it a bit to use redstone wiring as inputs instead of buttons – but it's not violating any rules. -- Orthotopetalk 07:47, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
It's not violating any rules, but it's a trivial variation of Grizdale's TFF right above it. —munin · Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Stone Pickaxe.png · 07:52, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
By the way, the "Doom Gate" can be a full SRT latch/flip flop. The Reset input must be connected to the top dropper through a solid block:
R
T
S
Bottom level
Top level
R
S
Side view (from the Reset input side). The darker input is in the front, the lighter objects are in the back.
--Regards, Naista2002 (RU T C) 08:25, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
P.S. This section should be moved to Talk:Memory circuit. I selected User talk:Orthotope just because I wanted to find out whether this is a violation of rules or not (I am slightly new to this wiki). --Regards, Naista2002 (RU T C) 08:33, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Database dump[edit]

I don't have a way to export the entire database; you'd have to contact Curse about that, and I don't know how willing they'd be to let someone clone the whole wiki. However, you can export the pages you want using Special:Export, and import them into your local MediaWiki installation. -- Orthotopetalk 04:43, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Requesting Rollback Ability[edit]

Hi Orthotope,

Sorry about my recent revert spam on the Pocket Edition upcoming features page. May I request the ability to rollback like you and the admins can, or can you tell me how I can perform a rollback if I already have it?

EthanCentaurai · 20:42, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

We don't have a specific rollback group, and only bureaucrats/Curse (i.e., not me) can change user group rights anyway. The easiest way to revert multiple edits is to go to the page history, compare the pre-vandalism revision of the page with the current one, and use the 'undo' link on that diff page. It's a few more steps than a rollback, but does the same thing. -- Orthotopetalk 20:50, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
No worries. I did that before and manually typed in the "revert consecutive edits by <user>" edit message but wasn't sure if that was the correct way to revert mass vandalism. I'll do it in future if the need arises. :-)
EthanCentaurai · 21:10, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

72.130.148.176[edit]

He made more vandalism edits than his partner, ‎24.165.63.119. Why block him for 1 week - the same period as ‎24.165.63.119? For these three edits he made, it seems like he must be blocked for 1.5 to 3 weeks.

Naista2002Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Iron Pickaxe.png 07:57, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Both IPs seem to be controlled by the same person, based on their edits (and attempted edits caught by the abuse filter); I don't see a need to block one IP longer just because it happened to be used more than the other. -- Orthotopetalk 08:06, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi! I was trying to change my signature in the Preferences page, but the new one was broken. So I changed back to the old one, but it's still broken. Any ideas? [[User:JEC6789|JEC6789]] (talk) 18:51, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

What's the code you're using for your signature, and is the 'treat signature as wikitext' option checked? I can't see other people's preferences. -- Orthotopetalk 18:56, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
The code is {{static link|User:JEC6789|2=JEC6789}}, and the "treat signature as wikitext" option is checked. [[User:JEC6789|JEC6789]] (talk) 18:59, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
Hmm... that's what I'd expect if the option was unchecked: it takes your signature text and wraps it in a link to your user page, followed by a link to your user talk. If you clear both the signature text and checkbox, it will go back to the default. -- Orthotopetalk 19:13, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, The "Treat signature as wikitext" option was actually unchecked. [[User:JEC6789|JEC6789]] (talk) 19:19, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
Check it, hit save, and it should work properly. -- Orthotopetalk 19:21, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Who does what[edit]

since Wyn was not exactly able to tell me how things run here, it's a bit hit and miss. If you always relied on Curse to do these changes, i'm happy to do them. I simply didn't want to step on any toes — Game widow (talk) 22:23, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

We mostly called on Wyn to deal with things normal admins couldn't: user group changes, cross-wiki stuff, extension installation, CAPTCHA troubleshooting, anything that requires backend access to the MediaWiki installation. She sometimes got involved in more everyday things as well, and I don't recall anyone complaining about that. If you see something that needs doing, go ahead and take care of it; we aren't possessive about specific duties. -- Orthotopetalk 23:10, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

Revert on User talk:TheGeekyGirlMiner[edit]

For the most part, people can do whatever they want in their own userspace; see the footnote on the Wiki Rules. -- Orthotopetalk 11:43, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
But, as per common sense, talk pages should only be used for discussions (except "talk page sandboxes", theorized by me, but they are only for discussion tests and talk page template tests). For me, the common sense seems to win, and that led to tagging User talk:TheGeekyGirlMiner and User talk:GratefulSymphonia for deletion. Majr, who deleted the latter page, didn't asked any questions nor reverted my edits there.
Another option is to move the contents of that "talk" page to an appropriate sub-page of User:TheGeekyGirlMiner. --Naista2002Talk

That is what most people use them for, but again, unless someone is being generally disruptive, they can use their talk page however they want. Arguably, CSS pages are only supposed to be used for CSS styling, not article contents, but I'm not going to tell you how to manage your userspace. -- Orthotopetalk 16:16, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
Naista, that is not your userspace and you have no right to tell other people how to use their userspace. If you think someone isn't using their userspace to its best potential, the most you should do is try to discuss it with them in a helpful manner, not delete their content. If someone did that to me in my userspace I would report them to an admin for vandalism. —munin · Grid Book and Quill.png Grid Stone Pickaxe.png · 16:23, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

16:36, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
Stop removing the deletion notice. The "correct usage" of a user's talk page is for discussing or asking that user, not for making pages or writing a tutorial (the purpose of drafts or sandboxes). Once again, Majr deleted User talk:GratefulSymphonia, a page with similar problems, without questions. And, blocking me will only escalate this conflict. One more revert, and I or someone will report this to Majr. --Naista2002Talk
Contribs
11:35, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
You will report this to me, and expect me to do what? Do you consider me to have absolute authoritative power over this wiki or something? If you have an issue, you take it up on the community portal. Everyone has equal power to help decide what to do, and all admins have equal power to enact those decisions when necessary.
I think a user's main talk page should remain available for its intended purpose. Putting other junk in there doesn't impede the ability for the talk page to be used, so it doesn't matter, but it is preferable if they would do that elsewhere.
I deleted User talk:GratefulSymphonia because it seemed like spam, not because it wasn't the correct usage of a talk page. MajrTalk

(edit conflict)Naista, that may be your definition of 'correct usage', but is it an official guideline anywhere? Again, our rules are explicitly permissive as to what people can do in their own userspace. Also, please read wp:DONTBITE; if a new user is editing improperly, it's better to educate them (e.g., suggest that content is better suited to a user page than a user talk page), rather than simply delete whatever they have done. -- Orthotopetalk 23:28, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
