The Mojang Tweets feed on the right sidebar appears to still be showing Mojang tweets from a day or two after Minecon, most notably, "We found it hard working with Yogscast, but we regret that this was aired publicly. We will now sort this out with them directly."

I think the best solution is to remove the Mojang Tweets section, morph the Recent Community Articles into the left sidebar, and move the box advertisment to the bottom of the page (where there are already two other box ads).

Revision as of 20:13, 12 February 2012

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 when posting an issue.

Before posting an issue here, consider the following:

  • As this is a noticeboard and not a talk page, please refrain from discussing.
  • Post only issues that require administrative action, i.e. blocking vandals, protecting pages, restoring deleted pages etc.
  • Do not post deletion requests here. Deletion requests should be made by adding {{delete}} to the top of the target page, which will then automatically mark the page as a candidate for deletion.
  • Do not post issues regarding content disputes. Try making a request for comments instead.
  • Mediation requests between users should only be made if a resolution could not be reached between users.

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.

Current issues

Ocelot mob page

The ocelot is a confirmed mob added in snapshot 12w04a, so Ocelot should now be unlocked. --Barracuda 15:27, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

Cauldron on [1]

Cauldrons are currently listed as only obtainable by /give or inventory editors. Should be listed as normal since the addition of the crafting recipe in Minecraft 1.0.

The cauldron block and item are different things; you cannot normally obtain the block, so the tables are correct. This belongs on the talk page, not the admin noticeboard. -- Orthotope 01:41, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, didn't know either. Thank you for correcting me. -- Gman1012 8:43, 25 January 2012 (UTC)

SOPA/PIPA

"Large deletion from article by new editors"

I wanted to delete some poorly written traps in Tutorials/Traps added last days. But got this warning. Off course it is good that you can't delete much from an article. But someone added a lot of bad traps. For example i think that this isn't a good trap idea:
"Okay. Make a roller coaster. At the end, a iron door closes, and lots of falling gravel falls BEHIND you. Then there is a sign that says: Chose your path wisely. Okay, so they walk down a path for a bit. Then they drop down. At the end of the fall, there are 3 pathes. All have trapdoors, which lead to lava at the bottom. "

You simply have to be registered and make 10 legitimate edits in 3 or 4 days to become "Autoconfirmed" then you can make your changes without triggering the filter. You can check your user group status in your "Preferences". -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 09:48, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Automatic anti-vandalism #2

I wanted to correct trivia on the Obsidian page, but got blocked with Nonsensical anon edits. Just do not consider me a bad guy or whatever. System may also need revision, because my edits looked quite nice to me. 87.228.24.249 15:59, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

Disabled the guilty filter; it was getting *way* too many false positives. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 22:59, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
I would not necessarily say that 5 false positives out of 500 is way too many, but it seems other filters were catching most of the bad edits anyway. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 09:50, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
When I disabled the filter, it was blocking some 20+% of anon edits. The "Statistics" line shown on the filter page is a sliding window view of the most recent actions and matches. If the filter is meant to block one particular editor (it is shown as blocking a single spammer IP several hundred times), the filter should be made specific to the editor (and in the case of that IP, it's simpler to just add the URL(s) they're trying to spam to the spam blacklist). ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 18:17, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Automatic anti vandalism

I tried added a message to Known_bugs/Version_1.0.0 but it was stopped with the following message: Nonsensical anon edits. This was the message I wanted to add:

[X] [Cr] Hitting the higher part of a door makes the door drop as a resource.

  • In creative blocks don't drop as resources, normally, right? --188.203.195.65 10:41, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

Minus the bold, offcourse.

Vandalism

By VANDAling (talkcontribslogsblock log) at Portal (disambiguation), Stone Brick, Technical blocks, and Enderman. Obviously a vandal-only account by looking at the username. :L Dawn S. Ikk 07:07, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

Done. –ultradude25 (T|C) at 17:13, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

Section Removal: Mods#Safe Mods

The "Safe Mods" section in Mods is mostly redundant with "Harmful Mods and Mod Safety". I just edited "Harmful Mods..." to that effect, but couldn't delete "Safe Mods" due to automatic vandalism protection. The only remaining unique content is the claim that outdated mods could "develop into a virus", which is clearly ridiculous. Hence, please remove. 80.237.156.64 03:34, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

Page Rename: South/West rule

The page South/West rule needs to be renamed to reflect the compass changes in game. The rule is now referred to as the South-East Rule. Also, there seems to be a disagreement on the format of the rules name. While the page uses a /(slash) the actual pages seem to use a -(dash) between the names. I represent the - (dash) here in the name as it seemed to be the most common usage. --Mystara 19:52, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Suggest "South/East" instead of "South-East", because the rule affects South AND East, not only SE (i.e. diagonal). "South-East" would imply diagonal only, where as "South/East" implies South OR East OR both. Kroc 09:06, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
South/East is not a valid page name. As it means East is a sub-page of south. –ultradude25 (T|C) at 16:35, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Vandalism

Several incidents by SjasFaic DreadLindwyrm 21:38, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

sorted. again, SO sorry I blocked you! D: these situations make us need to block so we have some temporary order. I've unblocked you now. again, sorry! --Kizzycocoa 21:56, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Name

is there any possibility that someone could change my name? because it was supposed to be TheVelho22 but its TheVeho22 which annoys me a lot so it would be very nice if somebody can(or knows how to)change my name...Thank you!

Register the correct name, and then request a user merge here. Your contributions from the old username will be moved to the new name, and the old name will be deleted. -- Wynthyst User Wynthyst sig icon.png talk 09:51, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

Captcha problems

I was trying to add a references section to the ladders page, and did that successfully; however, I then realized that I needed to add a <* references/> tag to the section for it to actually display the references. however, the site told me to complete a math problem before I submited my work; I did so, and then went to hit "save". however, It also said that I needed to preview the page first(which I had already done.) however, after I had previewed the page and hit save, it wanted me to do another math problem... and the loop began. Help please?

User Lazdo/Lazdogrape

Accounts were apparently created just to add embedded videos. May also be the same user as HecticGrape (talkcontribslogsblock log). Orthotope 02:46, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

More vandalism

Repeated edits by Eric.hintz916 (talkcontribslogsblock log)

Igryoo (talkcontribslogsblock log)

Has done nothing but post links to his(?) own Youtube videos, which have been consistently removed as spam. Since being unblocked for violating the video policy, he's repeatedly tried to remove an existing link to a video in order to promote one of his own on the same topic. His commentary on it includes a link to another of his, encouraging people to download a cracked copy of Minecraft and providing a URL to do so, a rather blatant violation of the Minecraft TOS. This might warrant further administrative action, not my place to decide. -- Orthotope 19:43, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

Doubled his previous block.--Quatroking - MCWiki Administrator 22:07, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

Pocket Edition upcoming features

Repeated playing with the release date and additions of Cyrillic text, from multiple IPs. I don't know what the source of the attention is, but I suggest protecting the page. —kpreid 18:37, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
