About <code>

In FandomDesktop, the styles of <code></code> and <samp><samp> is the same now and indistinct, could someone please change the style of <code> to make them readable.--Chixvv (talk) 10:25, 15 July 2021 (UTC)

Try using {{samp}} which changes the color to gray. Fadyblok240 (talk) 19:09, 1 August 2021 (UTC)
I think the best solution would be making a tweak on the css to restore the old <code> behavior. Thejoaqui777 (talk) 03:26, 3 August 2021 (UTC)
The code's style also needs to be changed. For example:
(Allowed characters: -, ., :, _, a-z.)
Some sentences like this are used in some command pages, which could be read and understood easily before, but it is confusing now because it's difficult to distinguish between codes and commas.--Chixvv (talk) 16:12, 6 August 2021 (UTC)
And some pages like Commands/particle also become difficult to read because of this.--Chixvv (talk) 16:23, 6 August 2021 (UTC)
Try placing this in Mediawiki:Common.css:
code {
	background-color: #ffffff;
Fadyblok240 (talk) 02:30, 7 August 2021 (UTC)
Placing this in Mediawiki:Common.css should work:
.page-content code {
    background-color: var(--theme-page-background-color--secondary);
    border: 1px solid var(--theme-border-color);
    border-radius: 2px;
    padding: 1px 4px;

--Chixvv (talk) 15:26, 7 August 2021 (UTC)

It's really worse on some devices where monospace font is almost the same with normal font. Hope you can fix it as soon as possible.--Chixvv (talk) 15:46, 9 August 2021 (UTC)
@AttemptToCallNil, could you fix it please? it is important for some readers.--Chixvv (talk) 07:52, 11 August 2021 (UTC)
Code implemented, also pings don't work anymore. --AttemptToCallNil (talk) 09:47, 11 August 2021 (UTC)

The list is not alphabetical

Can you please make the admin list alphabetical? TheGreatSpring (talk | contribs) (Tagalog translation) 00:11, 20 July 2021 (UTC)

Obligatory nightmare mode

I think you will create the Obligatory nightmare mode redirect that redirects to Java Edition 3D Shareware v1.34 § Obligatory nightmare mode, why? 06:39, 20 July 2021 (UTC)

 Done. Humiebeetalk contribs 21:26, 25 July 2021 (UTC)

MCW:Patroller requests

Why does it even exist anymore? No one uses it and it is quite tedious to make a request. Also, patrollers can decide for themselves. To me, the page should either be linked to the sidebar, be deleted, or be converted to MCW:Requests for patroller or MCW:Requests for user rights as there is not really a way for a user to request themselves to have a user right, only for someone else to request it like Amatulic requesting active users for autopatrol right or an admin occasionally giving users rights. Humiebeetalk contribs 21:26, 25 July 2021 (UTC)

I would support redesigning it, but making it a request for roles page isn't a good idea. People should get roles as rewards from contributions, because people believe on them, not because they request them. I would just delete that page anyway, as patrollers can mostly decide by themselves. Thejoaqui777 (talk) 23:31, 25 July 2021 (UTC)
Should the page just be archived or outright deleted? Humiebeetalk contribs 19:05, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
First thing you should all do is to complete those unfinished ones. --TreeIsLife (talk) 19:38, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
 Strong Support archiving it. I will archive the closed ones to Archive 3 and put a banner that it is not used anymore. There is already an alternative on the MCW Discord. Otherwise, talk pages (or AN) will be enough. --TreeIsLife (talk) 19:38, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
Archived 1 section. If nobody will oppose me in next 24 hours, I will put a notice for people to stop making patroller requests on July 28 (it will just be notice, no protections or moving pages) and alternatives for that. --TreeIsLife (talk) 20:05, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
Update: Nobody opposed me in 24 hours, so I put the banner. The banner is up now. --TreeIsLife (talk) 16:19, 27 July 2021 (UTC), updated 20:05, 27 July 2021 (UTC)
Good news. I checked all 6 ones. Most of them were just check few pages and that's it. I will put all of them to archive, but what with the page?
Humiebee and Thejoaqui777 What should we do with the page? I prefer archiving it, but I can't do it myself. --TreeIsLife (talk) 17:45, 28 July 2021 (UTC)
Well, I  Support archiving it (also the ping template doesn't work, I think, or maybe yes? I don't know, maybe I should ask). Thejoaqui777 (talk) 06:05, 30 July 2021 (UTC)
I think it should be archived as well and left untouched as an ancient page. Humiebeetalk contribs 18:05, 30 July 2021 (UTC)

About the speedy deletion template and delete when template

When previewing a page/editing a page with the {{sd}} or {{delete when}} template,it shows This page has been tagged for (speedy) deletion.[[https://minecraft.fandom.com/PageName/SubPage?action=delete delete]][links] with a missing "|" between the "?action=delete" and "delete]]".

It's because it's an external link, not a wikilink. The outer brackets are not part of the link. Fadyblok240 (talk) 12:23, 7 August 2021 (UTC)

Theme changes side effect mobile browser

Not sure what new changes have been done to the css, but the text is no longer readable on mobile browsers. It was good up until a couple of hours. 09:12, 9 August 2021 (UTC)

About MediaWiki:Gadget-refTooltip.js

16 	var $win = $( window );
17 	var $body = $( '.mw-body' );
18 	var $content = $( '#mw-content-text' );

Since FandomDesktop has arrived, the .mw-body is no longer there, causing this gadget to fail. To fix it we simply needs to change it to like this:

16 	var $win = $( window );
17 	var $body = $( '#content' );
18 	var $content = $( '#mw-content-text' );

This is a pretty handy gadget, and I kinda rely on it very hard, so I hope you can fix that ASAP. Thank you! -- Lakejason0 (TalkContribs) 11:38, 9 August 2021 (UTC)

Fix applied. --AttemptToCallNil (talk) 11:58, 9 August 2021 (UTC)

About MediaWiki:Gadget-site.js

172 var extractList = function( $contentContainer, listClass ) {
173 		var $content = $contentContainer.find( '.mw-parser-output > ul > li > ul' ).children( ':not(.nbttree-inherited)' );

Since the usage of Template:nbt_inherit has been changed in 2015, the ':not(.nbttree-inherited)' is no longer needed. And it makes some special NBT inheritance impossible. Please change it to like this:

172 var extractList = function( $contentContainer, listClass ) {
173 		var $content = $contentContainer.find( '.mw-parser-output > ul > li > ul' ).children();

Thank you! --Chixvv (talk) 07:43, 11 August 2021 (UTC)

Another request

It still works not well. Could you change it again? Just add some new lines:

229 if ( treeview ) {
230       $content.children(".load-page-button").children(".jslink").each(function() {
231             if ($(this).text() === i18n.hideText) this.click();
232       });
233       $content.detach();
234 } else { 
235 ...

Thanks!--Chixvv (talk) 15:49, 11 August 2021 (UTC)

Both these two requests are for a new template. It still works buggy now.--Chixvv (talk) 17:15, 11 August 2021 (UTC)

Hm, can't say conclusively, but that sounds like a possible security issue or two. It's meant to expand the entire tree with a single click, right? Can it be used to link people to other pages? Can it be used to create infinite recursive trees that may crash the browsers of whoever clicks a button? --AttemptToCallNil (talk) 19:02, 11 August 2021 (UTC)
It's meant to hide the entire trees. It won't load anything and just hide expanded subtrees. And I don't think there's security issue because we can't create a link with a certain class in wiki.--Chixvv (talk) 02:05, 12 August 2021 (UTC)
Added that code as well. --AttemptToCallNil (talk) 06:40, 12 August 2021 (UTC)

Fandom app needs better setup

Hi, I don't edit here but I noticed this issue when browsing the Fandom app and thought I'd mention it. The 'home page' for this wiki on there is really messy, seemingly having just used a large portion of the category tree. As readers on the app cannot edit, sections on there such as Category:Users and Category:Templates are very redundant and pages in them don't seem to be accessible anyway. Sections such as Category:Blocks probably should be there, but under a better name. As an increasing number of readers are going to be using this app, I thought I'd bring it up as it's only going to be confusing for new readers. Bongo50 (aka Bongolium500) (talk) 08:52, 12 August 2021 (UTC)

Categories are still useful to editors, Category:Users does not list all users, it is more of a category to encompass user categories (like inactive editors, editable user pages, etc). Same with Category:Templates. Template names are supposed to be simple so Category:Blocks is fine. Also, we can't help you with the fandom app issue, please contact fandom through Fandom support (click Support on the bottom and then click contact us on the bottom of that page) Humiebeetalk contribs 12:51, 12 August 2021 (UTC)
I'm not saying that the categories should be removed; of course Category:Templates is very useful to editors. I'm just saying the view of the wiki through the Fandom app should be simple enough for the average reader who may not even fully understand what a category is in the sense of a wiki, let alone how to use a template. The reason I asked here is because this part of the app is specific to the wiki and needs changing by an admin. Bongo50 (aka Bongolium500) (talk) 13:02, 12 August 2021 (UTC)
Wait? Aren't you viewing this Minecraft Wiki? Because from my knowledge, Gamepedia ones are still not included. --TreeIsLife (talk)

Category:Pending split

This category keeps expanding with no pages being removed (due to lack of discussion). Is there a way to clean up this category, possibly make sub-topics of this section as discussion about whether the page should be split? No one will reply to a talk page post on a random indev page... Humiebeetalk contribs 13:09, 12 August 2021 (UTC)

There are also about a dozen categories that need to be renamed. They take much more work than other types of pages because it requires that hundreds of category links would be changed. Fadyblok240 (talk) 14:00, 12 August 2021 (UTC)
This should be a cleanup fast but the categories need to be named first too. Jonjinbutter (talk) (C) 18:26, 12 August 2021 (UTC)

<sup>, <sub>, and <pre> fixes

The following text should be added to the appropriate css page:

h1#firstHeading.page-header__title sup {
    vertical-align: super;

sub {
    vertical-align: sub;

.page-content sub {
    font-size: 10px;

.page-content pre {
    white-space: pre-wrap;
    word-wrap: break-word;

This fixes multiple instances of the <sup>, <sub>, and <pre> tags not working as they should on FandomDesktop, such as any page that uses {{frac}}, the display title on 0x10c, and my own talk pageJEC talk @ 20:30, 16 August 2021 (UTC)

Remove overwriting a page from non-autopatrol users

Similar to suppressredirect, it is basically like deleting a page and several recent moves (such as one from Coral reef to Coral Reef) have been allowed due to this right. Can an admin please remove it? Also, please keep it for autopatrol and patrollers to be consistant with suppressredirect and to be able to revert such moves. Humiebeetalk contribs 14:55, 20 August 2021 (UTC)

  1. The ability to overwrite a page when moving is also granted by the suppressredirect permission. Without the delete permission, it only allows overwriting a page if, when moving A to B, B has only one revision, which is a redirect to A. This permission cannot be used in any other circumstances, and so does not present a security issue.
  2. suppressredirect is intentionally granted to all autoconfirmed (not just autopatrol) users because without this permission fixing move vandalism is even harder. If a vandal moves Pagename to Bad Pagename, it would be impossible to revert such a move without suppressredirect or admin permissions.
  3. Admins cannot adjust group permissions. That has to be done by either the associated wiki representative (not sure about that) or Fandom staff. --AttemptToCallNil (talk) 04:32, 21 August 2021 (UTC)
@AttemptToCallNil:, wasn't suppressredirect removed in the UCP migration? See MCT:Community portal/Archive 31#suppressredirect permission, UCP, and autopatrolled users. Humiebeetalk contribs 23:19, 21 August 2021 (UTC)
It was initially removed, later it was restored following internal Fandom discussion and user feedback. --AttemptToCallNil (talk) 04:25, 22 August 2021 (UTC)
I don't recall ever being able to move a page over an existing page name, although I have seen other non-admins seemingly able to do it. It's an ability I have on the English Wikipedia and have needed here occasionally. Amatulic (talk) 15:27, 22 August 2021 (UTC)
Try it out, make a user subpage called User:Amatulic/Random subpage, move it to User:Amatulic/Another Random subpage, and then move it back to User:Amatulic/Random subpage. Make sure you do NOT edit the redirect page or else overwriting will not be possible. Humiebeetalk contribs 21:36, 22 August 2021 (UTC)
The fact remains that I am often unable to move a page when I need to do so. Amatulic (talk) 18:38, 19 September 2021 (UTC)
@Humiebee: I tried it just now. I inadvertently created a tutorial under the wrong name Tutorials/Axolotl farm and was unable to move it to Tutorials/Axolotl farming, which I didn't realize existed until I tried to move it. Amatulic (talk) 04:14, 27 September 2021 (UTC)

You need to add a tutorial page for farming each of the new 1.17 + 1.18 blocks and items

(such as dripstone, moss blocks, dripleaf, glow berries, amethyst, axolotls, glow squids, screaming goats and goat horns, etc.)

Hi Minecraft Wiki, I'm a farm designer who reads 2 hours a day on this wiki and it is really special for me. I recently noticed that most of the 1.17 blocks and items do not have tutorial item farming pages. I do not have permission to create new pages so can you please do it for me?

I will work on the articles.

Yours sincerely, 19:05, 16 September 2021 (UTC)

I think (though not 100% sure) you can create pages if you have an account - you could try making an account and seeing if you can make them. Lolad1089 (talk) 20:18, 16 September 2021 (UTC)
Thanks im signed in now and it worked! I created the amethyst, potion, axolotl, lava and dripstone tutorial pages Vwoot (talk) 06:49, 19 September 2021 (UTC)
No, we don't "need" to add these tutorial pages. Tutorial pages aren't needed for everything in Minecraft. In my opinion, there is too much tutorial advice that consists of youtube videos about thought experiments that are impractical to implement in an actual survival game. Also, if you are making a tutorial just to showcase your youtube videos, it's best that you don't. Sorry to be negative, but the tutorial subpage area was created to keep fancruft out of the articles. There are some good tutorials, but there is a lot of junk also, and we don't need more junk. If you can write something of quality that is actually useful for playing the game, without self-promotion, then create an account and go for it. Amatulic (talk) 18:35, 19 September 2021 (UTC)

Grant autopatrol to Drour1234

Drour1234 (talkcontribslogsblock log) is a prolific editor in the Minecraft Dungeons space. I have seen this editor's work improve to the point where I no longer need to see Drour1234 come up in my watchlist of unpatrolled edits. Please grant the "autopatrolled" right.
