Minecraft Wiki Admin noticeboard
Shortcuts

The admin noticeboard is one way through which users can notify administrators of issues needing administrative attention. While users are welcome to directly contact specific administrators (especially if they are seen to be active), posting here can be an easier and quicker way of ensuring that at least one admin will notice an issue and respond to it promptly. Remember to sign (using four tildes: ~~~~) when posting an issue.

Before posting an issue here, please consider the following:

  • This page is for reporting wiki issues. Please post any discussions on the community portal talk page.
  • Post only issues that require administrative action, i.e. blocking vandals, protecting pages, restoring deleted pages etc.
  • Do not post deletion requests here; instead, the page should be tagged for deletion.
  • Do not post issues regarding content disputes. Try making a request for comment instead.
  • Mediation requests between users should only be made once a resolution could not be reached between users.
  • For issues regarding the use of this wiki, please see our help center.
  • For issues with filters preventing edits from being saved: filters are not able to be disabled for specific people. However, an admin may be able to perform the edit themselves for you. "New user" filters expire after you log in and make some edits around the wiki.

In case of vandalism, posting about it here is low priority. Revert it first, anyone can do so. If the vandal created a new page, tag it for deletion. Assume good faith and consider leaving a message on that user's talk page to explain the reason. Post here only if the user has made several disruptive edits and/or persists despite a warning. Always avoid a revert war with the vandal; it is far better to wait until an admin has a chance to intervene.

If a user must be reported here, do not create a new section. Instead, add * {{vandal|Example user}} Your concise reason (e.g. vandalised past 4th warning). ~~~~ in the Block requests section.

If a protection or unprotection request must be requested here, do not create a new section. Instead, add * {{la|Example page}} '''duration (temporary or indefinite) and protection level''': Your concise reason (e.g. constant spam and vandalism). <nowiki>~~~~ in the Protection requests section.

Please post new topics at the bottom of the page by clicking the "add topic" tab above.

Error on Wild Update page.[]

On the Wild update page It shows the Warden and the Deep Dark biome, however they are being added in the 1.18 C&CII Update not the 1.19 Wild Update. I cannot fix this as an error shows up so I am asking someone else to do it. – Unsigned comment added by Infrasound7 (talkcontribs) at 18:57 UTC October 16 (UTC). Sign comments with ~~~~

First, please sign your comment using 4 tildas (~~~~) and the Warden is going to be added to the 1.19 Wild Update. Humiebeetalk contribs 20:07, 16 October 2021 (UTC)

Why? That's what Wikipedia is for. See wikipedia:Minecraft#Reception. Wikipedia would give the topic more encyclopedic treatment. It's sort of outside the scope of the Minecraft wiki. Amatulic (talk) 05:02, 14 November 2021 (UTC)

Can't type Minecraft preset (admin keeps blocking it)[]

I made new Minecraft preset. I tried to make a new page with the preset, but the admin keeps blocking it, as it says, it has unwanted words. But it was only Minecraft preset. I can't do anything! – Unsigned comment added by Tankazer (talkcontribs) at 13:27, 7 December 2021 (UTC). Sign comments with ~~~~

I'm not an admin and have no idea what would've triggered that abuse filter, but the page you're describing is not something that would meet this wiki's notability guidelines, which disallow pages regrading fan-made content. If that's still something you want to get posted to the wiki, it would have to be a subpage of your user pageJEC talk @ 15:41, 7 December 2021 (UTC)
I also changed the filter a bit. I suspect it was causing an issue because of the "lapisSize" property. --AttemptToCallNil (talk) 10:29, 8 December 2021 (UTC)

Please delete 319 pages/files.[]

In Category:Pending deletion, there are 316 pages/files in the category plus 1 subcategory and 2 more in Category:Pending speedy deletion. Can all of them be deleted? Most of the pages are unused, unneeded redirects, duplicates, or other pages that have no reason not to be deleted. I know there is a right given to admins called Mass delete pages (nuke).

Undeleting a very old image[]

On the main page, alongside File:Minecraft.png there used to be another file, File:Minecraft2.png, captioned "Epic cityscapes", which has long since been deleted (and doesn't show up on the internet archive either: http://web.archive.org/web/20090621202937/http://minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Main_Page). Since this was one of the very first images ever added to the wiki and since its companion is still around and still being used on the classic page, I think it deserves to be undeleted so it can be seen again by the modern world. AlienAgent124 (talk) 07:50, 1 May 2022 (UTC)

 Done. –Sonicwave talk 22:05, 2 May 2022 (UTC)
Thanks a ton, and while we're on the subject of undeleting old files, I noticed something else: the files File:Cavern 1.png, File:Cavern 3.png and File:AlexVMiner's Spleef Arena.png are some of the only known screenshots of the missing version 0.0.21a_01. However, the user who uploaded these images also uploaded another image on the same day as those three, File:Cavern2.png, which was deleted. This was probably also taken in the same version so it's probably also one of the few existing screenshots of this version, so it definitely ought to be undeleted too.
There's probably at least a few more old deleted screenshots on here that are of versions now lost, but it would be difficult to tell which ones without undeleting them first. AlienAgent124 (talk) 00:30, 3 May 2022 (UTC)
Cavern2.png is just an extremely cropped lava texture.
Feel free to add more files here to look at undeleting.  Nixinova T  C   05:49, 10 May 2022 (UTC)

Fix false positives regarding edit filter 50[]

I have pointed out many false positives regarding edit filter 50, called "Tag character spam", by adding hex colors, such as #333333, #999999, etc., hence I proposed to fix the false positives to that edit filter. DeepLineMadom (talk) 07:27, 2 May 2022 (UTC)

It kicks in, however, only for users with less than 10 edits. I think that's reasonable, and unlikely to generate false positives. Amatulic (talk) 18:15, 2 May 2022 (UTC)

Beetroot Seeds Usages[]

I just made an account to delete a section under the Beetroot Seeds#Usage. The trading part relates to Beetroot, not Beetroot seeds. Since I've not made enough edits yet I'm not allowed to perform this action. – Unsigned comment added by Codex404 (talkcontribs) at 14:58, 5 May 2022 (UTC). Sign comments with ~~~~

No — The section shouldn't be deleted, but corrected. One can buy beetroot seeds from wandering traders. I have corrected it accordingly. Amatulic (talk) 15:23, 5 May 2022 (UTC)

"Keeps editing"? Where? That IP address made one edit in January and one in May. Not clear that it's the same user. Looks like drive-by one-off vandalism to me. If problems persist, see the link at the top of this page to make a proper block request. Amatulic (talk) 15:35, 10 May 2022 (UTC)

iron golem spawn volume conditions are in conflict in 2 pages for bedrock edition[]

For Bedrock edition,

wiki says "The golem attempts to spawn in a 16×12×16 volume around the village center defined by a bed or a bell." in https://minecraft.fandom.com/wiki/Iron_Golem#Spawning page.

However;

wiki says "... 16×6×16 volume around the village center." in https://minecraft.fandom.com/wiki/Iron_Golem#Spawning page.

These information are in conflict ! Which one is correct?

regards. – Unsigned comment added by 92.45.88.58 (talk) at 10:10, 17 May 2022‎ (UTC). Sign comments with ~~~~

I believe your second link was intended to link to the Tutorials/Iron golem farming, where you saw this discrepancy.
Always assume that article pages are more correct than tutorial pages. Articles contain actual technical information based on testing and code examination. Tutorials pages were originally created as a way to keep "how to" advice out of the articles, so that the articles contain only information about the game and not how to play it. Many tutorials are dumping grounds for fancruft and youtube videos, although I've tried to keep some of them clean and up to date, such as the ones about farming drowned, iron golems, axolotls, zombie villagers, and water transportation.
I missed the change for the iron golem farming article. Thanks for pointing it out.
The spawn volume changed after 1.17.30. I have fixed the tutorial page so now they both agree. Amatulic (talk) 17:07, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

Error with loot chests[]

All locations where there would be a table of a loot chest normally instead have this text: "Lua error in Module:LootChest at line 3817: attempt to index field 'rolls' (a nil value)." Not sure what all of that means but I think it needs administrator attention. I have not posted before so please forgive any mistakes in my formatting. HardlyHunter (talk) 00:38, 10 June 2022 (UTC)HardlyHunter

User:AttemptToCallNil made a bunch of edits to the module in the past two days. It may have been the result of that. I left a note on their talk page. Amatulic (talk) 14:44, 10 June 2022 (UTC)
The error was introduced in edit 2136652, I actually fixed it. Because of that edit, several upcoming pool lists became part of ordinary pool lists (they were supposed to be sibling nodes) and were interpreted by the module as one of the pools. Since the upcoming lists ended up empty after the edit, the module crashed due to absence of some critical fields that all pools are expected to have. --AttemptToCallNil (talk) 06:47, 11 June 2022 (UTC)

Navigation popups gadget no longer working[]

Since the recent wiki software update that finished earlier today, the 'navigation popups' gadget (see user preferences / gadgets) has stopped working. I rely on this gadget heavily to preview diffs in my watchlist and in recent changes, and also for patrolling edits.

It would be nice if the {{ping}} template started working with this new update. Testing pinging BDJP007301: Did you get notified of that ping? Amatulic (talk) 16:38, 22 June 2022 (UTC)

I submitted an updated version of the popups gadget for JS review. It worked for me in test mode. As for pings, I'm not sure, but I think the issue is with the custom notification system used, which won't work no matter how much MediaWiki is updated. --AttemptToCallNil (talk) 17:06, 22 June 2022 (UTC)
Navigation popups is now working again for me.
It's a pity about the pings. That is an incredibly useful feature for those of us who 2000 pages on our watch list. Amatulic (talk) 00:17, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
I take that back. Navigation popups appears, but the "mark as patrolled" option is no longer there under the top heading. Amatulic (talk) 00:19, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
That's most likely an upstream change, so if this option is necessary, it will have to be re-implemented by local admins, which is a non-trivial task. --AttemptToCallNil (talk) 03:15, 23 June 2022 (UTC)
Well, the navigation popups gadget had to be implemented by someone in the first place, and it was done originally at my request after I tested it by pulling it in from MediaWiki. That conversation is at Minecraft Wiki:Admin noticeboard/Archive 33#Woohoo! It works. User:Madminecrafter12 originally imported it and made it available in user preferences. The gadget did need some tweaking before it started working really well, particularly with patrolling. User:Majr fixed up that feature. User:Jack McKalling also participated. I guess it needs to be looked at again. Amatulic (talk) 23:43, 24 June 2022 (UTC)

Inappropriate username[]

There is a user named Minecraft Wiki Administrator which is misleading because the user is definitely not an admin. Is it preferable to rename the account, or should the user just create another account? Fadyblok240 (talk) 02:52, 24 June 2022 (UTC)

Blocked indefinitely. BDJP (t|c) 03:06, 24 June 2022 (UTC)
Is it a soft block or a hard block? If the username is the only problem with the account, then a hard block may not be justified. Sure, the edit made by the user isn't constructive, but we may not know whether the user is editing with malicious intent without letting the user make more edits. Fadyblok240 (talk) 03:10, 24 June 2022 (UTC)
In this case, because the user had "Admin" or "Adminstrator" in their name, it generally falls under a hard block. Some accounts with that word in their username haven’t even edited (or their contributions were deleted) before being blocked. BDJP (t|c) 03:28, 24 June 2022 (UTC)

DELETE[]

File:Chorus.png DELETE THIS FILE, ITS NOT MINECRAFT. ZaLink700 23:40, 1 July 2022 (UTC)

In case you didn't notice the follow-up reply to your comment in my profile one or two days ago, the admins of this wiki can't do anything about that image since it's hosted on the Fandom Commons Wiki and not here – JEC talk @ 01:49, 2 July 2022 (UTC)

Important question[]

Is the official Technoblade easter egg on the Minecraft Launcher allowed on this wiki? (It is an official easter egg from Mojang.) I am having a dispute with another user about this. Minermatt122514 (talk) 21:09, 2 July 2022 (UTC)

I think that you are correct on the matter. Technoblade's crown is a feature built into the game that is important to address in the article, and disallowing it because it's "advertising a youtuber" just seems a bit silly to me. A note to both of you, however (pinging Minermatt122514 and ZaLink700), repeatedly reverting each other's edits over and over, especially spamming ALL CAPS in the edit summaries, is never a way to solve a dispute, and risks being blocked over. Next time, if something like this happens, I'd recommend starting a discussion somewhere to solve the issue, either on that page's talk page or just here (which I'm glad you did do eventually). --Madminecrafter12 (talk) 04:38, 3 July 2022 (UTC)
I sure wish the {{ping}} feature actually did something on this wiki. Amatulic (talk) 15:16, 3 July 2022 (UTC)

Abuse filter[]

Can you please remove the abuse filter when removing sections? I am redirecting the page Heartstealer to the page Claymore#Heartstealer, and then the abuse filter disallowed me from removing a section. Can you please remove the abuse filter? 110.54.116.150 (talk) at 10:25 UTC July 13, 2022

I'd say no. It would have negative consequences in other situations, and the redirect is bad anyway; there is no "heartstealer" section on the MCD:Claymore page. If you want this done, fix the destination page first and then ask someone with a confirmed account to fix the redirect. Amatulic (talk) 17:57, 12 July 2022 (UTC)

Alright[]

Delete this image File:Lightbulb.jpg ZaLink700 04:59, 14 July 2022 (UTC)

I agree. There is no place for "tips" or "pro tips" in article space, and there is no need for it in tutorials, which are basically pages full of tips and pro tips. Amatulic (talk) 18:16, 14 July 2022 (UTC)
Yeah because it doesn't look like Minecraft and "pro tips" don't really come around. ZaLink700 19:23, 14 July 2022 (UTC)

Blocked by automatic filter when trying to edit https://minecraft.fandom.com/wiki/Bedrock_Edition_level_format/Block_entity_format[]

I attempted to fix a few typos ("postionn" -> "position") and was blocked with the following message:

Sign comments with ~~~~

I just tried it and it worked for me. I'm not a new user though. And I edited only that section, not the whole page. Maybe there's a word somewhere on the page that's triggering the filter (the word "position" certainly wouldn't). In any case, the spelling error is fixed. Amatulic (talk) 18:13, 14 July 2022 (UTC)
One of the lines changed in the IP's edit included a blocked string inside another word which triggered the abuse filter, even though it was already there and not touched directly by the edit. I'm not sure what would be the best way to prevent these cases without allowing a significant amount of spam through. –Sonicwave talk 22:09, 14 July 2022 (UTC)

Fart piano[]

Someone made it, view history for more. ZaLink700 03:53, 15 July 2022 (UTC) EDIT: Its gone

You don't have to announce these here. Just put a delete tag on it, and an admin will come along and delete it.
It occurs to me that this would be an interesting new sound for a note block. Like maybe if you put it over a slime block, it makes a fart sound. Amatulic (talk) 04:33, 15 July 2022 (UTC)

It should be fixed now. Just be careful of how you move pages around so that the actual page history stays with the page, instead of just copypasting the contents to the correct location. If you aren't able to move the page directly back to its original title, it may be better to wait for an admin to delete the incorrect pages so it can be restored correctly; or see Wikipedia's instructions on Round robin moves for how to resolve such a situation yourself. –Sonicwave talk 05:35, 24 July 2022 (UTC)

More broken functionality[]

Since the recent wiki software update a month or so ago, I have noticed, in addition to the "patrol" feature disappearing from the Popups gadget, now diffs no longer have a "thank" option. I found this useful to acknowledge when someone corrected something I did. Amatulic (talk) 04:51, 28 July 2022 (UTC)

 Comment: It's not broken, bacause it appears on history pages. It seems to be a change made by staff on some config option for the extension globally. We could try to request it to get reverted back to how it was before, but we'd need a good reason anyway. Thejoaqui777 (talk) 13:57, 28 July 2022 (UTC)
The good reason is that it was a useful communication aid that should still be available. Another reason might be that an "upgrade" to wiki software shouldn't result in downgraded functionality.
I never used it from history pages. I use "thank" from diff pages, where it used to work quite well.
As for page patrolling via popups, I do that from my watchlist. I don't recall it ever worked from history pages. Amatulic (talk) 21:50, 28 July 2022 (UTC)
I thanked you from the history section as a test, and it works. TheGreatSpring (talk | contribs) 21:53, 28 July 2022 (UTC)

The following table is used on pages like Redstone circuits and Redstone circuits/Logic.
