Guide for rewriting[]

Item sections
  • Introduction: Brief description of the item, make sure the templates are in the right order. Information here should be no more than a couple sentences.
  • Obtaining: If relevant, add "Natural generation", "Mobs", "Crafting", and "Smelting"
    • There is no need to state the recipe before {{Crafting}} or {{Smelting}}, as the picture says it better
  • Usage: Add sections for major uses, such as "Crafting ingredient", "Smelting ingredient", "Brewing ingredient", plus other uses such as a food or for breeding.
  • If needed, add other sections major features of the item. If the information can fit in a single paragraph, it may be better in "Usage".
  • Data values: If the item has data values, make sure a table is added on the subpage "/DV". If it already exists, make sure the information is correct.
General sections
  • Achievements: If any achievements are directly relevant to the article, add it here using {{Load achievements}}. For example, an achievement that involves smelting something would not go on Furnace, but an achievement earned by a recipe using cobblestone would go on Cobblestone.
  • Video: If there is a video here, watch it and check to see if any corrections need to be made.
  • History: Make sure this section uses {{history}}. Group multiple development versions under one version by leaving out the version parameter. Remove any bugs that only lasted for a very short time, e.g. 1 version, or a few developement versions. Added missing history if relevant.
  • Issues: Remove anything here that is not {{Issue list}}. If missing, add it.
  • Trivia: Remove any information that fits better in another section, is tutorial based, is a bug, is obvious, is comparative, or based on visuals. If there is a lot of trivia, or it only affects a certain edition, subsections may be relevant.
  • Gallery: Remove images that discuss the same thing, or are related to an outdated bug. Remove images that are simply a fan creation, and does not show anything about the article topic.
  • See also: Remove any links that are already mentioned in the article, such as crafting products, damage values, mob variants, or drops.
  • References: If there are no references, remove this section.
  • Make sure it has any relevant templates, such as {{Entities}} or {{Redstone}}
Other guidelines
  • Move information to the proper sections for that type of article, e.g. history in "History", usage in "Usage".
  • Move history information to the history section, unless it is about an upcoming update
  • Remove information that belongs on other pages, e.g. information about the void on the Bedrock article.
  • Remove tutorial information and add it to the proper tutorial if relevant, e.g. remove combat and add it to Tutorials/Combat.
  • Remove information based on bugs that are outdated.
  • Add any relevant missing information.
  • Give in-game terms and editions the names that they have now (unless it's part of History), such as Bedrock Edition rather than Pocket Edition, and terracotta rather than hardened clay.
  • Use proper templates. Such as:

After finishing, add Category:Rewritten item from the bottom of the page, and it will automatically get added to the list at the bottom of this page.
