Script errors?

I appear to be getting script errors on nearly every page that has a template and/or images. Is this just me? I've checked the Terraria wiki and everything seems to be fine there. - MinecraftPhotos4U (talk) 15:01, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

Its fixed. If you see a page that is still affected, simply press "edit" then "save page", a.k.a a null edit. It will refresh the page cache and reload used templates. User:KnightMiner (talk) 19:25, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

Minecraftthumb.png not updating correctly?

I just managed to upload a new version of the Mojang roster without Notch, Carl, Jakob, or Tobias as they all left the company, but somehow, its not updating on the file page or the Mojang AB page. BDJP007301 15:31, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

For me it was updated correctly. User:LauraFi (Talk / Contribs) 15:34, 9 November 2014 (UTC)
Looks fine to me; probably just your browser cache. -- Orthotopetalk 21:38, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

The list of this wiki's rules is quite basic; for more in-depth explanation, see WP:Policies and guidelines, there are mostly similar rules. Read them both, to learn how to not disrupt not only Minecraft Wiki, but also many other wikis.

PvP Tutorials

I believe that section 6.6.6 (Not recommended Inventories) is not helpful for PvP, as the article repeatedly states that the best armor and weapons available should always be used.

The issue is in the top part of the page (above the trailer section).
  • The text you wanted to save was blocked by the spam filter.
This is probably caused by a link to a blacklisted external site.

Improvement to Template:Info needed

This may be worth the admins' attention: I've just added support for a parameter to Template:Info needed. If a parameter is present, it will appear as a tooltip when the words "more information needed" are hovered over, and those words will have a dotted underline. The idea is that people can specify "more information needed about..." without having to refer you to the talk page. Seahen (talk) 01:36, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

It does not really needed to be posted here, as this board is to report issues that require administrator assistance, rather than for seeking administrator approval (which for the most part does not need happen, we do community approval instead on this wiki (though for something this small, approval is not really required unless you are removing used feature)).

Adding links to http://crafting-guide.com ?

I've been working on a project to make it easier to deal with complex recipes, and I recently finished adding all the core Minecraft recipes. The gist of the site is that you tell it what item(s) you want to make, and it will figure out all the raw ingredients you need along with step-by-step instructions for any number of whatever items you like. For example, here's how you make 16 potions of healing II and fire resistance (with extended duration).

The maintainers of many of the mods I've added (e.g., BuildCraft / Applied Energistics) have found it useful to include links to Crafting Guide in their official documentation, and I was hoping you would think it a good idea to add links from this wiki to CraftingGuide as well. I'd be happy to do the work of adding the links myself, but I'd like to make sure there are no objections first!

Thanks! Andrew Miner (talk) 20:54, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Tutorial and mod content is not covered in main pages. Vanilla recipes are quite simple and this tool doesn't provide much of a benefit for them over just looking at the recipes on the wiki, and as for mods: any decent modpack will have NEI installed, which gives in-game help on what patterns and materials are needed to make things, so I don't see it being particularly useful for anything but the most complex multi-stage recipes.

Can we whitelist ask.fm from the spam filter? Marc uses it to answer various questions, some of which relate to Minecraft or his page on the wiki. (his username is "Marc_IRL" there, see his twitter for a source) User:KnightMiner · talk 16:04, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

From what I can tell, whitelisting it would simply require adding the domain to MediaWiki:Spam-whitelist, assuming the blacklist works by combining the sources, then making exceptions via the whitelist. Otherwise, the entry in MediaWiki:Spam-blacklist may need to be modified to match fewer strings (I did notice it does not use $ to match the end of a domain name specifically...)
One last option would be an admin simply unhiding the source from Marc Watson. User:KnightMiner · talk 01:22, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
I've whitelisted it. I don't know how much these filters are actually doing right now. We don't get much spam since we moved to gamepedia, so maybe we can relax those filters to match known shorteners, and common spam TLDs. MajrTalk

NickTheRed37, you are wrong. Users can do just about anything in their userspace, including removing comments from talk pages in their userspace. It does not matter if a comment breaks the rules or not. – User:JEC6789 [ 17px | 20px ] 14:00, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
As User:JEC6789 said, currently users can officially do what ever they want on their own talk pages, other than breaking the rules that are not stated as userspace exempt. The policy may be different on the Russian wiki though, several policies tend to differ between the two. User:KnightMiner · talk 14:05, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

While removing comments is generally discouraged, it is not against any rules here. Most users choose to archive older discussions to another page, but this is not required. Everything is still in the page history, so it's not completely deleted. -- Orthotopetalk 23:16, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
It would probably make sense to make it a rule, really. While people generally follow etiquette in regards to talk pages, that isn't enforceable and can result in abuse, such as in the case here where BDJP007301 would rather pretend a topic doesn't exist rather than discuss it. The other issue of abuse is where someone has been warned about something they shouldn't do. If they just remove the message then it won't be so obvious that they have continued to do the same thing with subsequent warnings. MajrTalk
