Hello, I love the thing you made of the Stone bricks, cracked stone bricks and the mossy stone bricks, but can you try the same with the huge-mushrooms? Of this picture: That will be awesome, I can't make isometric blocks, but someone will do it when you upload! I'm sure about that! --Dyon 21:47, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

I tried zooming in on the red mushrooms, and making it higher quality but failed hard, The only thing I know is this,
The yellow pieces on the red mushrooms blocks texture are different. If you check the middle patern, it got different shapes on it... --Dyon 08:21, 4 July 2011 (UTC)


I don't intend on being useful in my presumably short term here as a user on this wiki. If my simple, pathetic attempts at vandalism made you smile, then you're quite welcome. If my attempts provoked any other emotion, then it's unfortunate that I wasted your time.

I did place my opinion regarding 'natural' obsidian on a talk page, but beyond that simple boredom has strangled my usefulness here. I do admire the wiki very much and would like to see it flourish beyond compare. My attempts at enhancing this already rich source of knowledge will likely be redundant, however, and so my account will simply exist for my amusement.

Admit it. The chicken obviously comes before the egg. Anyone who argues "well where did that chicken hatch from?" should be answered swiftly with "It was spawned, you idiot."XxNewbVandalxX 18:09, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

They were fun. ^^ Don't worry, I wasn't being mad or anything; I had to undo them. It is always nice to have extra editors here because there are quite a lot of pages with horrific grammar. You could always come in handy! :D Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 18:16, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

So, wait, wait, wait... I can actually be useful?! Point me, good sir, to these aforementioned instances of horrific grammar and I will work like <insert appropriate regional metaphor here>. XxNewbVandalxX 18:22, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Well, a huge amount of the Tutorials articled need improvement, such as Tutorials/Monster Spawner Traps, and many others. You could help out there! Also, undoing and removing speculation is a constant ongoing pain, as is removing useless trivia (such as many on the Dungeon page. Go for it! ^^ Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 18:28, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

item naming proposal[edit]

soo… what are the next steps? afaics the reaction was quite positive, so what will we do? propose an item-naming spec?

if so, my idea is this:

Use the ingame item names as article title wherever possible.
  • like “redstone repeater” instead of “Redstone (Repeater)”.
  • “name (clarification)” only if there are two articles about things named exactly “name”, which are different from each other, such as “stone slabs” (both those from cobblestone and normal stone are called so)
  • if different items with the same name are also similar enough to be handled on one page (such as “stone slabs”), the clarification in parens is not necessary.
“normal case” instead of “Title Case”.
  • together with proposal #1, now when we want to place a link, we can just surround a phrase in normal text with [[]] instead of having to specify the target. like this: [[redstone repeater]] instead of [[Redstone (Repeater)|redstone repeater]].
  • if the “name (clarification)” scheme is used (according to rule #1), the “clarification” part in parentheses is in lower/normal case, too.
  • also, there is no reason to have Title Case in the first place.
handle related items in a about section, and use disambiguition pages

Sorry to ruin your lovely redlink there with a redirect page, but its one of my Projects --HexZyle 02:33, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
(Thanks for the fix) Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 03:03, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
The only reason I would support title case is that the ingame items are capitalized. I think the general movement was away from disambiguation pages and towards using the {{about}} template instead, as it would shorten the amount of pages yet also provide the same useful information. For example:
It does appear that more support needs to be garnered before Wynthyst approves.
Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 20:01, 7 September 2011 (UTC)
@casing: nevertheless: people tend to type in lowercase in english, and it looks better and less confusing this way. maybe we should start a separate discussion about that. i never realized the game used title case, though, i suppose it’s not really a thing that you remember.
@disambiguition/about: yes, the only position where disambiguition-pages are useful is, if the general term doesn’t designate an article, like redstone. there is nothing named “redstone”, only items/blocks named -dust, -ore, -wire, …, so redstone should stay a disambiguition page. for others, like you said, it isn’t necessary.
@support: where did he say that? and what does that mean? i didn’t hear a single argument for the paren-naming, and just one guy said he didn’t like it (which isn’t an argument). so should we roam the wiki like some of jehovah’s witnesses to convince people to say “yes, me too. you want arguments? see above”, or what?
Flying sheep 11:56, 8 September 2011 (UTC)
@About: Oh, yeah. That makes a lot of sense.
@Support: Well, yeah. :T I haven't had the time for it, but I was hoping to post links to the discussion on talk pages of the articles that would be affected, but not pre-suggest what side they should take. :P Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 17:45, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Snow Golem[edit]

Snow Golems are not crafted, they are assembled in world, as I'm assuming all future Utility Mobs will be. You don't have a template for that which is why I used an image instead. --Ecksearoh 16:53, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Ah, I see. Though, the only reason the current crafting grid is better is that the grid allows you to click on the pictures of the blocks and find out what they are, like with item crafting. Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 16:55, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
Is there any way to create something new that will serve the purpose we need? I'll leave it as is. But Notch intends to create more golems, so eventually someone will have to make a new template. --Ecksearoh 17:00, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, we likely will have to. I am not too well versed in the ways of templates, so I'll leave that up to an expert. Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 17:01, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

A thanks[edit]

Thankyou for tagging my accidently-uploaded image for deletion. I did not know how to tag it as such at the time. It is much appreciated =) --Kris159 19:53, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

No problem! I filter through the Recent Changes page a lot, and just happened upon it. Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 20:43, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

You have been selected...[edit]

You have been placed on the semi-serious Top Contributors to the wiki list. --HexZyle 16:04, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

Ooooh, thank you. I feel honored! My title seems completely appropriate, better than I could have though of. Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 19:20, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Well I studied your list of contributions before I added you, and I also read the WikiGnome page on wikipedia once and I thought that was pretty fitting --HexZyle 02:19, 3 October 2011 (UTC)


On your user page, in the bit about the nether, surely you mean you like the nether QUITE a bit not, as you have it quote a bit. Minor thing, but it bugs me. Timberdoodle 12:53, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Oh! Thanks! I type far too quickly. :T Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 13:02, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
